    @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).

    JBM: There's nothing to prevent a (relevant) player acquiring dual eligibility later in the season. As I recall last season, people were up in arms wanting YAHOO! to give Ty Montgomery (GB - WR) a second eligible position (RB).

    I would NEVER participate in a Fantasy Football League where scoring values are position dependent. In fact, I would suggest further that there should be a Fantasy Football Constitutional Amendment stating that no commissioner shall create individual scoring categories with values (including an implied zero value) that are dependent upon a player's listed position.

    Uh ... what do you do with players who acquire dual eligibility, and what do you do about flex positions on your roster?

    In other words, the idea of scoring values being dependent upon a player's position is never feasible.

    I must disagree with the idea of making scoring values dependent upon a player's position. A player (for example) should receive the SAME POINTS for each category, regardless of whether that player is a QB, WR, RB, TE, K, etc., just as it is right now.

    Also, making scoring values dependent upon a player's position would create a couple of problems. One such problem would be how to handle players with dual eligibility (RB/WR eligible as an example); another problem would be how to handle players inserted into a fantasy lineup in a flex position (such as W/R/T).

    Even if I were in a dynasty league, I would prefer to "disconnect" during the off season. I have other things to do.

    I believe what is being asked for here is the option for a two-week final (could be Weeks 15 & 16, if one doesn't want to use Week 17). I'm sure other sites have that option, and Yahoo! uses such format as the default in its baseball head-to-head leagues (Weeks 25-26). I just wonder why Yahoo! doesn't offer a two-week final even as an option for their head-to-head football leagues.

    The problem here is that there's nothing in the box score indicating either the player benefiting from the DPI call or the player guilty of the OPI call; thereby making this an individual stat impossible to track.

    @Am: Don't you mean "Kicking team free kick recovery" instead of "Onside kick recovery"? After all, it should not matter whether the kick is short (your typical onside kick) or deep into the endzone as long as the receiving team never possessed the ball prior to the kicking team gaining possession.

    A "dropped pass" is very different from a lost fumble.

    A dropped pass results only in a loss of down.

    A lost fumble results in a loss of POSSESSION.

    My thoughts:

    1. In reality, each touchback is worth zero points (the NFL Rule Book actually lists the touchback in its scoring section along with the touchdown, the field goal, the safety, and tries). Alternatively, I am in favor in one point for each successful rouge, eh?!

    2. So ... if the opening drive of the games results in a field goal and there's no more scoring throughout the rest of the game, you want to count that field goal double??? (Hint: NO)

    3. Simple solution: Make your league an IDP league and award point(s) for tackles made. Any tackles made by the kicker will be credited as miscellaneous points (those ordinarily earned by players in another position such as an individual defensive player) and will be indicated by an asterisk*.

    4. Change "Onside Kick Successful" to "Successful Free Kick Recovery by Kicking Team" and make it a DEF/ST category. If any point(s) are going to be awarded (perhaps half the value of a fumble recovery, but never more than the full value of such), it should make absolutely no difference as to whether the kick is short (such as an onside kick) or deep into the endzone (recovered there by the kicking team for a touchdown, something which can and HAS HAPPENED in the NFL). The only stipulation it that the ball must never have been possessed by the receiving team; otherwise it becomes a fumble recovery by definition.

    The problem here is that punters generally do not put points on the scoreboard directly. In fact, the punter can only be effective fantasy-wise on drives where his team doesn't score (not counting fake plays).

    Since the punter's greatest asset lies in the field position game, the best stat category to measure the effectiveness of a punter is "Net Punt Yards", which in this case would be the length of the punt minus (or plus) any return yardage gained (or lost) by the receiving team. If the result of the punt is a touchback, then it would be the length of the punt minus 20 yards. (Question: is any penalty yardage gained or lost also included?)

    Also, keep in mind that a guy like Ben Roethlisberger (normally a QB) may occasionally execute a pooch punt, and as such would be eligible for any stats normally associated with a punter.

    @Nick: You don't need Yahoo! to set up your consolation brackets; just set them up yourself and inform the bottom eight teams and let them play it out. Business as usual.

    In addition, this can also eliminate the requirement for a league to have an even number of teams.

    I see a real potential problem when it comes to prohibiting the dropping of "bench players" of teams that have already played.

    For example, an unforeseen emergency (such as food poisoning) could arise to a player in someone's starting lineup several hours prior to the Monday Night game. This would require picking up a free-agent replacement (assuming one is available); and as such, would likely require dropping a player to make room. One cannot suggest to drop the suddenly injured player; such player may be on the Can't Cut List (and therefore, undroppable). It also may not be possible to put such player on IR, especially if the league doesn't use IR spots. The only other option is to drop one of the other bench players and it's very likely that every available bench player is one whose team has already played earlier that week. One should not be forced to "take a zero" in one's starting lineup spot, especially if there is last-minute help available from the free-agent pool.

    In the real world of the NFL (as well as other sports that allow ties in the regular season standings), a tie counts as ½ win + ½ loss; therefore the statement that "ties are not losses" is not 100% true.

    According to the rules of survivor (how to play), the objective each week is picking a team to WIN; not picking a team not to lose.

    And as for every game in a single week ending in a tie ... let's just say that YOU are at least a million times more likely to be struck by lightning.

    In the real world (such as the NFL Draft), there IS a time limit. If you have to take 3 days to select a player (which seems to be what you want here), then you shouldn't be playing fantasy.

    The IR designation should only be for those players who are going to be out for an extended period of time due to INJURY, and such players should be listed on NFL's IR or PUP.

    The IR should never be used for players who are just designated OUT or inactive since such designation would not carry over to the next week and this could create problems with weekly waiver claims. Also, the IR should NEVER be used for those players who are suspended; that is the fault of those players themselves (not to mention that there's no injury involved). Fantasy owners choosing to keep suspended players on their rosters during the suspension should be required to navigate their way around this period, just like they do during the bye-weeks of their (healthy) players.

    Ties happen.

    If they happen during the regular season, accept it and move on (for percentage purposes, a tie counts as 1/2 win + 1/2 loss).

    Of course during the playoffs, an actual winner and loser must be determined to see who survives and advances and who is eliminated; however "bench scoring" should never be used as a tiebreaker under any circumstances.
