thoughts on scoring rules

Postby springfield atoms » Tue Jul 01, 2003 2:36 pm

hello folks,

just looking for some outsiders POVs on some proposed scoring rules in our league.


offensively, we score
1 pt per 10 rush or portion thereof
1 pt per 15 rec "" ""
1 pt per 25 pass "" ""

td passes are 2 points, catches are 4 points, and all other tds are 6 points.

field goals get points based on distance, basically a point for every ten yards - a 41 yd. FG is 5 points, a 51 yd is 6, 31 is f...

we also give players 1 point for a "Key Play" as listed in our official source (currently usa today) on the scoring drive summary.

2 pt converstions are 2 pt for a run and 1 and 1 for pass and catch.

fumbles and INTs lose a point as do negative yards.



here are a few modifications that we are looking at and would appreciate your thoughts on (if you use something similar)


1- create a five yard buffer for QBs to account for kneel downs so that they don't lose points for something that helps their nfl teams.

2- add bonuses for the distance on scores...between 1 and 6 points. figure this would help boost up WR and QB scoring

3- up two point conversions to 4 points total with 2-2 pass-catch

- If you want to boost QB and WR scoring, I'd have passing TD's worth 4 and rec TDs worth 6.
- Eliminate the -points for negative yards rule.
- The bonuses for distance on scores sounds cool. 6 points is a lot though.
- I wouldn't increase scoring on 2-point conversions. They don't happen enough to make much of a difference.

Yea get rid of the negative yardage negative point rule and also if u want to boost WR and RB scoring u could give 1 point per reception and give QB's like 25 percent of their completions

thanks for the replies folks.

btw, joester, got duece to sign a print of my fantasy teams helment the other day....he laughed when i showed it to him.

fred thomas was there and i told him he could be an honorary member, he seemed less that impressed.

we have experimented with some ideas on alternative scoring systems (our key play source is problematic) and were going to use bonus points for rushing attempts, completions, receptions and for passing statistical plateaus...but since we are a 14 year old league the current sentiment is to just deal with the probs of the system for continuity sake.


with this 'tweeking', we really don't want a drastic increase on the scoring, just a 2-3 point bump.

here are the numbers we would use for our distance scoring bonus:

10-29 (1) 70-89 (4)
30-49 (2) 90 + (6)
50-69 (3)


thanks for all the ideas.

I would up the receivers scoring. They would score a ton less than the RBs.
