PLEASE HELP...I need to understand the scoring system...

Postby BeefSandwiches » Fri Sep 03, 2004 3:18 pm

PLEASE PLEASE bear with me on the length of this post...

I have been doing FF for quite few years now, but I have never been in a TD league. I was out with some friends last night and got roped into another league (I have officially lost count). I don't even know where to begin AND THE DRAFT IS MONDAY!!!

This is the scoring explanation I was given -

Scoring for QBs,RBs,WRs,TEs
TD 0-9 yards = 6 pts
TD 10-29 yards = 9 pts
TD 30-49 yards = 12 pts
TD 50+ yards = 15 pts
2 pt conv = 2 pts
If a RB RECEIVES a TD it is double the points, If a QB RUNS a TD it is double the points, If a WR RUNS a TD it is double the points.

QBs Special Scoring
275+ passing yards = 10 pts
400+ passing yards = 15 pts
So 250 yards = ZERO, 300 = 10 and 400 = 15 (not 10 plus 15)

RBs, WRs, TEs Special Scoring
100 yrds rush/rec = 10 pts
200 yrds rush/rec = 15 pts (only 15, not 10 AND 15)
If a RB gets 100 yrds rec, it is only 10 pts - no double pts given for out of position yards. It is possible to get 100 rushing and 100 rec yards, which would be a 20-point bonus
** So I am assuming the 100 rush/rec means all the yards have to come by the same means, i.e. 100 rushing, not 50 and 50. **

DEF Scoring
Tackle = 1 pt (no partial)
Sack = 5 pts
1/2 Sack = 2 pts
INT = 10 pts
Fum Rec = 5 pts

K Scoring
0-34 yrds = 3 pts
35-49 = 5 pts
50+ = 8 pts

If you've made it this far, I appreciate the read.

What players are the most valuable in this league? What type of points would you expect week-to-week?

My first impression is that C-Pep, McNabb, Vick are high value guys, but none of them consistently throw 300 yard games so I don't know.

interesting scoring system. quite elaborate.

You're right that cpepp, vick and mcnabb become more valuable, but so do RBs that are involved in the passing game -- notably green, LT and westbrook. maybe even staley.
The league probably also favors stud relievers with breakaway speed (as opposed to posession receivers like Marvin H).

just my take on it -- it might be wrong.

steve smith comes to mind as one of those guys who seems to get a 60+ yd td every game and a half, two games. seems like a reciever with breakaway speed like smith would be a winner.
