Pass Interference Points
Defensive pass interference should award the WR/TE/RB/QB with half the regular amount of yardage points; or at least provide the option and let the commish choose the % allocation. Seems unfair that the offensive players gets nothing in this situation.

I like this idea...but, to my knowledge, DPI yardage isn't a tracked stat...I don't see how it could be done.

This needs to happen!

100% agreed! Even if we could just do one point per PI drawn, at least that's SOMETHING

Please implement this. So many games that people got cheated by PI and this would help with animosity over that a ton.
Some times, pass interference is the best that a D-Back can do.
In real NFL life, coaches and QBs take note of the penalty and throw the ball at that receiver again, hoping for another penalty.
Those penalties keep drives alive.
So, yes, the receiver should receive a Fantasy Football reward.
However, "half the yardage that the pass would have gone" is a difficult stat to find.
So, a standard number of points (2 points?) would be the easiest way to administer this stat.

I think it would be a good idea in scoring to allow an option for points for wide receivers drawing pass interference calls. If I could I would make that worth 1 point in my league, as it's always disappointing when your star receiver is interfered with on a long pass and you don't get any points for that.
The problem here is that there's nothing in the box score indicating either the player benefiting from the DPI call or the player guilty of the OPI call; thereby making this an individual stat impossible to track.

I like having the option available and like everything else, it should be at the commish's discretion of how the system operates. Since the penalty for offensive P.I. is 10 yards, as commish I'd probably set it at (1) ppdpi (pt per def P.I.) and (-1) ppopi (pt per off P.I.) since 10 yds is 1 pt in most scoring systems. Something is better than nothing.
So for offensive pass interference, we take yardage and points away?
If a RB/WR/TE draw a Defensive Pass interference penalty, award the intended receiver 1 point, and the QB .5

self explanatory. commissioner option to reward points for PI yardage
