Scoring - General feedback and requests
General feedback regarding scoring options and requests for new scoring options and categories.
John Haakenson commented
Additional penalty for player who loses a fumble and its returned for a TD. Right now Yahoo penalizes a QB who throws a pick-six -2 for the pick and an additional -2 for the TD given up. The same concept should be applied to any player (Q,R,W,T) who loses a fumble and its returned. For example -2 for the lost fumble, and additional -2 (or maybe more) penalty if its returned for a TD.

Scoring Justin Tucker's record-breaking 66-yard field goal as only 5 points is just plain dirty and wrong!
KC McGill commented
Double or give a bonus 3 points for a game winning kick inside of1 minute.
Let’s get fantasy managers excited about the kicker and create some weekly drama.
Melanie Sheehan commented
in fantasy football there are sections in league settings for point allocations for all ranges of Field Goals, in 10 yard increments, but when you get to 50 it just says 50+
There should be a new separate section for 60+ field goals, so leagues can award more points to the most difficult goals.
James Goode commented
This change should be easy to make. The computer code should be almost identical to yardage for passing, rushing, and receiving. The big difference is to have DEFs score fewer points as more yardage is accumulated against them in a game.
I suggest that the Commish of a league enter the "Maximum DEF points for yardage" and then enter the "Reduction per yard yielded" by the DEF.
The J Man Cestaro commented
Please consider awarding points to defenses that successfully complete an onside kick.
Brian Russo commented
I like this idea...but, to my knowledge, DPI yardage isn't a tracked stat...I don't see how it could be done.
Ben Colegrove commented
I'd like to see Kickers be able to score points for touchbacks. It gives kickers another level of scoring, turns the kickoff into a more relevant fantasy play and allows more league customization.
Reese Hogg commented
This needs to happen!

yeah, i agree. this would be fantastic to have included in scoring.
dumb penalties kill drives and should likewise kill fantasy managers. great idea. overdue.
ex: offsides, ineligible man downfield, illegal substitution, out & in of bounds, intentional grounding, facemask, roughing the kicker, leading with helmut, personal foul, unnecessary roughness, kick out of bounds, excessive celebration, illegal formation, taking helmut off, ...
it would be awesome to experience how infuriating it is to be an NFL head coach. hahahahahahha!
kevin =:p commented
yes!! that's what i've been wishing for, for a long time now! (-) points adds so much frustration to playing it would be an awesome feature to have!!

he said this isn't possible, but that was in 2017. it is 2020 now. are these statistics tracked?
yahoo: can you do this?
Mike Caputo commented
Yahoo is only allowed to use official NFL stats so they have their hands tied. It would be nice to be able to create your own defensive yards allowed categories to make them more in line with the NFL average.
Aaron Sauceda commented
100% agreed! Even if we could just do one point per PI drawn, at least that's SOMETHING
Ryan Thompson commented
Could do this similarly to the new field goal scoring, where commissioners set values for yards allowed or points allowed that equate to -1 point. For example, if I set 100 yards allowed to -1 point, then 500 yards allowed would be -5 points. And then I could do the same thing with points allowed, where maybe I set 10 points allowed to be -1 fantasy points, so 28 points allowed in a game would be -2.8 points.
And could add in the ability to count from some non-zero number set by the commissioner. E.g. 300 yards. Yards allowed beyond 300 could lead to negative points and yards allowed below 300 could be positive points.
Sean C Hinds commented
I completely agree, D/ST should have a category added to give them points for the recovery of a kick not already credited as a fumble by the receiving team.
Miles Bassett commented
Also, a fumble recovery is typically worth 2 points..
Miles Bassett commented
Kickers should be awarded for their clutch onside kicking abilities, if recovered of course ;)
Mark Bilanzic commented
Under scoring settings in commish tools> defensive yardage, make the yardage scoring settings less "chunky" for commissioners. I plan to make this scoring setting HEAVILY INFLUENTIAL next year in my league and need the setting to be less "chunky" and more precise, just like the rest of the scoring (like wr, rbs, qb scoring settings).
Additionally, I would like the same to be done for points allowed by defenses. Points allowed by defenses is "doled out" in chunks as well in commish tools. Why not make these settings precise like all the other settings in commish tools? (wrs, rbs, qbs).
Jeff Cross commented
I was posting this exact same thing! I almost lost a game tonight because my WR fumbled the football on a punt return, but if that same player were to run it back for a touchdown, he would be awarded no points. Makes no sense.

You guys have gotten WAY TOO CAUGHT UP IN BS!
#1 you can do with Edit team scoring
#2 way too play specific
#3 at catch is a catch weather is for a yard or 50 yards
#4 you would have to have offensive line players
#5 3 points is 3 points weather it's 20 or 60 it's 3 points. Where you all get off track is you want extra point just draft the guy who kicked the most 50+ yarders.
#6 too detailed
#7 onside kicks are practically eliminated why mess with them
#8 PPR should not even exist anymore see rant at the end
#9 insane it would take you all day Monday to figure all this meaningless stuff out. I'm getting real tired reading all this
#10 as commish you can change any position at any time your job is to be fair about it.
#11 non sense a player catches a pass for an 11 yard loss should be deducted. This goes against all the above you have been preaching.
#12 only thing that has made sense but reminder hoarding kills leagues
#13 the new NFL kick off rules have made it a completely meaningless play. The NFL needs to change that. It used to be the most exciting play of the game. The No Fun League has ruined that.
You are so far out of control there is literally no chance of saving you, You are pretty much asking for play by play scoring.
Fantasy is based on the game which now a days means nothing.
Why do you think basic scoring was 10 per point & QB 20 per pass?
It's all based on moving the chains, 10 yards for a first down equals 10 yards per point.
When fantasy was started the NFL was a rushing league it was not uncommon for a RB to get 40 points.
Then came computers & computer geeks who made up PPR to get WR's points because it was rare for a WR to get 20 points.
Enter 2018 PPR is no longer necessary because now the NFL is a passing league.
Last year ALL WR's averaged 13 yards a catch. So if your league is scoring higher than that you are only shooting yourself in the foot.
That's all WR from Michael Thomas to Quincy Enunwa's 1 catch for -4 yards. So imagine how much higher that number actually is for JUST the top 50!
Everyone the says what about the 5 or 8 yard catch well that was likely in a 3 & out situation each team punted about 65 times last year so not every play deserves points.
Even TE averaged over 10 yards per catch & that's from Travis Kelce's 79 catches to Eric Tomlinson's 1 catch for 1 yard. Again imagine how high that number is for JUST the top 30!
Right now in 2020 there should be no PPR when using basic scoring. Again if you are at more than 1 point per 10 yards you are defeating the purpose.
With all those suggestions I can't believe you left out punters!
Get back to basics & chill out man you are way out of control.
