Please allow for fractional kicker points
Allow for Commissioner tools to enable function for fractional kicker points. A 31 yard field goal worth 3.1, a 46 yard field goal worth 4.6.
All other positions are allowed fractional points. Would be beneficial to allow fair scoring across the board.

Along with the numerous posts stating kicker scoring should be fractional (10 yds = 1 pt, starting at 30 yd FGs);
18-29 yds = 3 pts
30 yd = 3 pts
48 yd = 4.8 pts
51 yd = 5.1 pts
The same idea should apply for missed FGs, but in the opposite direction. Starting with a zero point at 50 yds, fractional scoring increasing up to a goal line FG (18 yds).
Missed FG examples:
49 yd = -0.1
35 yd = -1.5
22 yd = -2.8
18 yd = -3.2
Can we make this optional for commissioners? SAVE THE FANTASY KICKER!.. before it’s too late
Mike Caputo commented
Worth giving leagues the option to do it. Let leagues decided if they want to do it or not.
Daniel Stern commented
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

I agree with Ashton
I agree this should be changed
TONY YACULLO commented
I have been begging for this change for like 5 years if not more. Just like RBs and WRs. Kickers should be 1 point per 10yds. Fractional scoring makes this as accurate as RBs and WRs. a 49 yd fg would be 4.9 points. Why this hasnt been done is beyond me. there are countless requests in this thread can we please have this for 2020.
Of all the suggestions I've read in other threads, this one seems like the easiest change to make. Just add a decimal point and one more digit to the right of it. We already have fractional scoring at all other positions, so why not the kicker? The fact that this hasn't been addressed yet really makes me wonder just how committed yahoo is to responding to the community.

Preach, brother! I've been wanting this for years. It's time to reward those strong, accurate, and elite legs of the NFL. Let's goooooooo!!!

I see people posting these separately so I’m doing it together and hoping we succeed. A 40 yard field goal and a 57 yard field goal should be 1.7 points apart not 1. 41 and 49 shouldn’t be the same (4 points) either.
349 yards allowed on D shouldn’t be a difference to 351. Same goes for bigger jumps like 299 to 300. These should be marginal differences. Let us start with a set number for 0 yards allowed (20 points let’s say) and drop accordingly from there. Best way would be to let us set our 0 mark as well (400 yards let’s say) and everything in between would work itself out.
You should probably throw points allowed into this mix as well. Let us start with a set number (10 points let’s say) for a shutout and drop accordingly for every points scored against our D or D/ST. Let us set our zero number here as well. Thanks

Let's Go Yahoo! This is a simple change and this needs to happen! Or I will find a platform that offers it.
Jordan Knauer commented
There is no scoring option for this and I think it would be awesome!
Decimal points for field goals! You have decimal points for receiving, rushing, and passing yards, but not field goals. There is a big difference between a 40 yard field goal and 49 yard field goal. I think it would be awesome if you got 4.9 points for a 49 yarder instead of just 4 points. 9 extra yards creates higher risk to miss, but it’s still the same point value. Doesn’t make sense to me.
I’m loyal to yahoo and love your platform. We have a fantasy league on our 11th year with you and we take it very seriously. Everyone flys to a location for the draft every year and we go BIG! We have a whole offseason of competitions for draft position. We have weekly articles written on “What to Watch” for the next week and ”Winners and Losers” for the previous week specifically written for our league. We have trophy’s, prizes, and punishments etc. We have our own league logo and we are all big fantasy football guys. literally have to sign a contract with our league rules. If you don’t comply then you are replaced.
Would love to see this request taken seriously for future seasons!
Thanks for all you guys do and for being the best fantasy football platform.
- Commissioner Jordan Knauer

(i.e. 33yd fg is 3.3 points instead of 3, 55yd fg is 5.5 instead of 5) and add Field Goals 50-59 and 60+
zack lamal commented
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.
Lee Bertram commented
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.
Fractional scoring for kickers, c’mon it’s long over due. If you can’t figure out the coding behind it hire me, I’ll do it.
Rob McDougald commented
This post has been open for three years. Come on yahoo, make it happen.
Fractional points please!! Been wanting this for a few years now

WE WANT FRACTIONAL KICKING POINTS.
