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.
One of the biggest complaints in my league is the lack of fractional scoring on FGs. Some kickers have gone over 60 yards in recent years. We would like to see a 62 yarder be worth 6.2 and a 49 yarder to be 4.9. I catch myself wishing for delay of games and false starts in order to push over the the 10 yard increment. Please make this change.
Make it to where there is an option where the kickers get tenths of points for the distance in which they kick field goals, i.e. 25 yards is 2.5 points and 63 yards is 6.3 points.
Fractional scoring for kickers.
1yard =.1 point
28yard fg = 2.8 points
49 yard fg = 4.9 points
50 yard fg =5.0 points
The current scoring model for Kickers in Fantasy Football is flawed.
It should replicate the scoring models of WR's and RB's where a player receives 1 point for every 10 yards, thus a kicker would receive points based on the actual yardage of the made field goal, not a range of yards.
Therefore, if a kicker hits a 18 yard FG, they are awarded 1.8 points, 4.7 points for a 47 yard FG, and 6.1 for a 61 yard FG. Made Extra points still count for 1 point.
The fact that a 18 yard and 39 yard field goal count for the same amount of points is preposterous. You wouldn't reward a wide receiver 3 points for catching a 20 yard pass, or a running back only 5 points for completing a 65 yard run, so why do we hold kickers to a lower standard?
I am asking that you at least make this scoring model available for leagues to choose. I think it would be quite popular once word gets out.
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
Yes, this should be an OPTION for leagues that want it.
Put your votes in everyone!! Get this to the TOP!
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.
I've wrote about this toooo many times! just add it!

Should be an easy fix C'mon Y!
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.
Dale Pendexter commented
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

It's a good idea - point of clarification, though... I'd like to see all FG's up to 39 yards stay at 3 points, then start the fractional scoring at 40 yard field goals. I don't like the idea of a 25-yard field goal only being worth 2.5 points.
This is a great idea. Makes sense from a logical standpoint Makes sense from a competition standpoint. The math isn't difficult. I think this is a no-brainier.
