How can we make Fantasy Football better?

Extend Decimal scoring to include Field Goals

Every yard is .1 points. So a 49 yard field goal is worth 4.9 points and a 50 is worth 5 points. Under the current scoring system that 1 yard difference is a whole point, not .1 of a point. ESPN figured this out years ago. Don't be slow to the game yahoo, this is an easy fix.

        You know, I liked having longer field goals with more but I moved my 50+ back to 4 since a long field goal shouldn't be worth a TD

        Everyone write a comment on this until they're blue in the face and have no option but to change it. Please!! Those decimal points are huge in my league! Yahoo is the only league that does not have this that I know of...

        It is 6 points for a 60 yarder Yahoo! not 5 or even 5.5!

        If every yard counts for RB's, WR's etc. then it should this too. Totally makes no sense for a 40 yd FG count the same as 49 yards.

        Please Yahoo!, make this happen! Make every yard count for something!

        If you're using anything smaller than .5 you're not playing real Fantasy Football...grow a pair...

        this STILL says gathering feedback...LOL...just FIX IT!!! give the CHOICE of making the points fractional or keeping it the way it is!!!! what feedback needs to be gathered?!?!?!?!?!?! dont listen to the idiots that think there should be a minimum score!!!!!! if its an easier kick, THEN IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE FOR THE KICKER TO GET LESS POINTS FOR IT!!!!! there are ONLY a HANDFUL of FGs shorter than 30 yards per kicker each season anyway!!!! WAKE UP GUYS!!!!!!!!!

        This is a great idea. Anything past 30 should be worth it's yardage value. It's silly that a 39 yard field goal misses out on an entire point just because it fell one yard short. It's like telling a running back that he is only credited with a 10 yard rushing TD run even though he ran it from the 19 yardline. Kickers are fantasy players too.

        Dale. Read the OP. Right now all you can do is set a hard number for FG by distance (30-39, 40-49). The idea is to set a baseline point for range PLUS adding 0.1 a yard after certain yardage.

        The scoring tool allows you to give whatever you want for points, really? Don't be so stupid, learn how to use the tools. Gees !!

        I think they should allow commissioners to set their own fractional points if wanted for all scoring. Like 0.10 per yard which would be 1 point for 10 yards. I want to set sacks to 0.5 and completions to 0.25
