Scoring - Position specific scoring categories
This scoring setting change would allow commissioners to change the scoring value for common scoring categories for each position (QB/RB/WR/TE) individually. For example, a commissioner could make receptions 1 point for WRs and RBs but 2 points for TEs. Currently you can only change the scoring value for all positions at once.
@Corey Jillett: Your logic of a QB touchdown and a WR touchdown having different values in a standard league is flawed. It is not the positions that make these values different, but rather, the types of TD's they are (usually) credited with. In particular, it is the PASSING touchdown that is credited for 4 points, while the rushing and receiving TD's are credited for 6 points. This means that in a standard league, a QB who takes the ball into the end zone himself (as opposed to dumping it off to someone else) will be credited with a RUSHING touchdown (worth 6 FP's), not a PASSING touchdown (worth 4 FP's).

More specific position scoring options i.e tight end scoring etc
Michael A Strutt commented
We use standard scoring but would like to use ppr for the TE position, just to keep it more competitive with the other positions. There is no option to designate ppr by position.

TE premium scoring......I would like to be able to set scoring parameters separately for each position. Then we could give TE 1.5 ppr vs 1 ppr for RB and WR.
James Chauvin commented
Have a Premuim TE scoring section to allow Leagues to give TEs more points based on catches and/or First downs. This would make the position more valuable and compatible to other positions.

Create the option for Tight End Premium(1.5 ppr) scoring league
nicky police commented
Would be great if each position was customizable. TE premium is a newer wrinkle in today’s landscape that’s great for fantasy in my opinion and being able to increase or decrease each position’s ppr would be ideal
Frank Raden commented
please for the love of god can we have TE premium/tiered PPR of some kind.
Corey Jillett commented
@tom lol dude in standard a QB touchdown is 4 points and a WR Touchdown is 6 points.... let people play how they want and implement scoring how they want. such an easy thing for yahoo to do.
Corey Jillett commented
I would love to be able to set scoring stats based on position. This way I could give TE a catch bonus to make them more valuable. I do IDP as well and would LOVE to let DL sacks be worth more points and DB Int's. Things like that I feel would be so easy to implement.
Brian Russo commented
Yes! Having the option would be a great add. I've wanted 1.5ppr on TEs for years.
Aaron Sauceda commented
@Tom Kirk, nothing about this idea prohibits you from continuing to run your league that way. This is just giving the OPTION to add TE premium, for instance –– what's wrong with the option?
Jim Pothast commented
How long do you keep these posts up? I see this is 3 years old, that's crazy.
If you all like Yahoo so much why are you getting so carried away with this ridiculous scoring?
You are over thinking the game.
As of 2020 PPR is out dated yet everyone still uses it.
Come on .5 points? What is the point of that IT'S NOT IN THE GAME anyway!
Everyone thinks they have to have 3 RB on their bench why?
It makes your league less competitive!!
In 2019 WR averaged 13 yards per catch. TE's 10 per catch RB 4.2 per carry, 7.8 per catch.
The game has caught up to standard scoring. 1 point per 10 yds, 1 point per 20 yds passing.
Take a step back & look at what you have become & what you should be doing.

This is perfect
Tom Kirk commented
I disagree. This is what is wrong with fantasy football. Too many players don't understand **** about how the game is supposed to be played. All scoring categories should have one value assigned to it. A PPR should be valued the same across the board. This isn't golf. Don't handicap less favorable positions based on your personal preference. A TD is a TD! A PPR is a PPR! A sack is a sack! People, stop being ridiculous. It's about the "value" of an on field achievement for the team.
Charles Herter commented
Can we separate scoring for RB/WR/TE, would like to place different PPR values for each position
Dan Stanton commented
I agree with this. We should be able to reduce RB reception points.

I’ve been a commissioner at yahoo since 2012, I’ve seen the mass improvement. You guys already have the best app and are very user friendly. I’ve noticed that other leagues offer way more customization when it comes to their scoring. Please allow more bonuses, scoring categories such as (7+ catches equal x points for H), if yahoo adopted Flea Flickers points, you guys would be unmatched
Jared Harvey commented
Great idea. Just created a new league and we want TE's to score a full PPR vs a half PPR for WR and RB.
Shawn Weebe commented
We need to apply points per perception based on the position. We want TE premium and also want RB and WR to have different PPR.
