Decimal point scoring for kickers
Please allow decimal point scoring for kickers. If a 39-yd rush is awarded more than a 31-yd rush, the same should be true for kicks. At least make this an option for commissioners.

They added this but I still like the idea of a 19 yarder, for example, is still worth the 3 points that a fg usually is. Like have an option where 1-29 yards is 3 points minimum, and then have the fractional scoring kick in. 31 yarder is 3.1, 43 yarder is 4.3, etc etc

This is insane that this isn't a thing yet. I would prefer kickers to just be axed but my league insists on the kickers. At least allow for 60+ yard field goal scoring to 6. Its crazy a 63 yard field goal gets 5? rather than 6 or MORE IDEALLY 6.3????
Sam Wilbur commented
Yes, other leagues are already doing this. Should be pretty simple. Points Per FG option. One can enter 0.1 and a 55 yard FG would be 5.5.
It is so simple and clear. Please add.

This needs more attention. It's an easy fix and Yahoo is late to the game in implementing. What is the hold up for fractional kicking based on exact yardage? I've been asking about this for years now. Yahoo needs to adapt or other sites will steal leagues.

There is a top 10 postvabout this and they should be merged
Michael Rettberg commented
Everyone in my league has said this as well. If your league is decimal scoring, the kick distance should be included.
Patrick Lynch commented
I've been saying that for years to Yahoo......Great idea. It wouldn't be hard for them either. Give the commish the option to have a 32 yard FG be 3.2 points instead of only 3 points.

Great idea. Leagues should be able to choose between this or the default.
Doesnt seem like it would be too difficult to implement.
M Montgomery commented
Do it please and make it .1 per yard kicked
Shawn McAlister commented
This is a great idea! It will give some more value to kickers and add some extra points to the position. You should be rewarded for every yard you kick. Even if this isn't a default, it should be an option. Idk what to do with extra points, ever since they were moved back 15 yards I wonder if they should be treated differently?

This has to happen Yahoo. It makes too much sense.

Wanted this for the last 3 years.

I think this is a GREAT idea!

PHENOMENAL IDEA! How frustrating is it when there's a 39 yard or 49 yard Field Goal and you're like dammit, one more yard would've gotten me another point! (Esp when field goals distances are often estimated/rounded anyway). A kick could be 49.5 and scorer rounds it down to 49 giving you one less point. With fractional scoring it wont matter as much if scorer rounds those kicks up to 50 yards or down to 49 since you'd only lose a tenth of a point rather than missing out on a full point.I'm also going into MNF with a 16.2 point lead and opponent just has Chris Boswell (who scored 19 points last time he faced Bengals). So this could get close and I'm glad he will hafta score 17 points to beat me. Fractional scoring would make it just a wee bit more exciting!
*This is a great idea. Make this happen Yahoo and at least give commissioners the option to include in settings!!!

I never thought about this...but this sounds like a great idea!

How has not a person (aside from myself right now) commented on this? People are all over other comments. This doesn't seem like a disagreeable suggestion.
