How can we make Fantasy Football better?

More custom scoring options

I Love Yahoo's custom scoring options, but would like a few more: #1- Enable Win, loss, and tie +or- for both QB's and team Defs. bonus points #2- Enable penalties committed/drawn +or- such as pass int. drawn for a receiver/QB, or a holding call against a player resulting in negative points, in increments of 5 yard, 10 yard, and 15 yard penalties, etc... #3- instead of only offer bonus points for 40+ yard efforts, offer bonus points for 20+ & 30+ & 40+ yard efforts at each position. #4- Offensive fumble recovery yards gained as well as def and Special teams fumble recovery yards gained for specific players. #5- Kickers field goals offering a per yard amount instead of a range, example: Field Goals 0-30 Yards= 3, each additional yard over 30= .10 (ex. 48 yard field goal = 4.8 points), also with a negative amount on misses. #6- team def points and yards given up equaling a per yard and a per point amount instead of the range. example is 0 points given up= 12 points, and each point given up = -.5 points, then 0's out at 24 points given up, and similar with yards given up on a per yard basis. #7 points for onside kick recovery for both players and team Def's. #8 for PPR, have a ability to differentiate the PPR amount between RB's, WR's, and TE's, example: Receptions RB= .5, Receptions WR= 1, Receptions TE= 1.5 #9- Junk Yards/points: If the team Def. Team is winning by 24+ points at any time in the 4th quarter, then from that point on, the value of all points and yards given up will be reduced... (–.5 points for every point given up instead of –1, and –.02 points for every yard given up (+ or –) instead of –.05... The same applies if the team is up by 17+ points with 5 min. or less left in the game, from that point on, all of the yards and points given up AFTER that point are reduced as the same above. However, if at any point thereafter, the opposing team gets within 10 points, then it all becomes nullified and the entire game scoring goes back to the regular scoring... #10- A player does NOT become “locked” in his roster position at game time... Instead, the player becomes “locked” when they enter into the game. The only exception is for team Def. And kickers, they become “locked” at game time, as long as the kicker is “active”. If the kicker is “inactive” then they will not lock in and you will be able to pull the kick at any time during the week until the week ends. #11- Any player cannot score less than 0 points... So I don't want any player, including team def. To score less than 0 points (no final negative points for any position) #12- be able to play more than 30 roster positions. #13- Team def. bonus points for kickoff touchbacks, kickoff's inside the 20, punts inside the 10 yard line.

        Been a year since this was suggested and we still only have basic scoring options. This should be totally customizable.

      • MattMatt commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would love the ability to change the scoring setup for different positions.

      • TonyTony commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Wait where'd this random post come from about all these scoring by Grady. This was an entire thread based on FG kicking. Lets not lose site of that. His post should be somewhere entirely different.

      • TONY YACULLOTONY YACULLO commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Basically it would be the same as 10yds = 1 point. With fractional scoring it'll be the same as RB and WR. So a 43 yd FG you would score 4.3 points

      • TONY YACULLOTONY YACULLO commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        60+ yds would be included, cause you'd still be getting 1yd= 0.1. For example 63 yd FG would be 6.3

      • Conrad BeckmannConrad Beckmann commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Can we just do .1 pts for every yard over 30, that way it's still a minimum of 3, and 60+ yard FGs are included too

      • Ryan McNamaraRyan McNamara commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I've been wondering about this exact issue for years. I think it is extremely important. A 40 yard field goal is way different than a 49 yard field goal and should be treated that way.

        At least give us the option to have decimals for kickers or not. Many of the third party fantasy football sites use this (FleaFlicker). I don't see why it is so difficult to implement.

        As a Yahoo Fantasy user since 2006 at the age of 12, I think these types of ideas are necessary for Yahoo to implement to stay at the top of the industry.

        Just got here via yahoo! chat, I totally agree with this if your WR RB get their actual yardage so should K. They should allow to chose 1 point per 10 yards. Then have separate for missed FG as some leagues will chose not to use that. I would not want to penalize a K for having missed a 55yd FG cause they need to tie/win a game. You shouldn't penalize a kicker for such a difficult kick.

        i put all 3 votes, but as long as you can do fractional negative pts for misses too.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hey Anonymous -- Your equation doesn't start with zero.
        Perhaps you meant to say starting with the zero yard line?
        I would call it the goal line.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'd prefer a base value starting with zero.
        Please consider 2 points + .1 point for each yard away from the goal line from which the ball was hiked.

        I've been saying this for years. If anyone hits 30 yards or lower they should get a standard 3 points but anything more should be partial points. Even if it's over 50 yards. 59 yard fg gives you 5.9 pts.

      • Chris BrothersChris Brothers commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We already have partial point scoring for running and receiving yards so why not field goals. Anything 30 and under should get a standard 3 pts but for example if you hit a 49 yarder you should get 4.9 or better yet a 59 yarder should be 5.9 points.

        This thread has now been "gathering feedback" for over a year and 2 months. It can't be that hard. Give the users the option to customize their league the way they see fit, yahoo!

        We voted for this just this season and what do you know we can't do this for kickers. Com'n man!!
