"Peyton Manning (IND) pass right side complete to Marvin Harrison (IND) for a 3 yard touchdown. (0:45)"

Woot!  Well, at least I know that I won't get shutout this week!

Yep - Manning's come through with 7 points for me so far... hopefully the Colts D will hold right now and he'll get a chance to throw a game-winner...

I doubt it will happen though.  We'll know in a minute...

EDIT:  whaddaya know... he'll get a chance at the 2 minute drill...

Yahoo Leagues are open

I've set up a league

http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1

http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1/17395

League #: 17395
Password is berry

We'll do the draft like we did for Fantasy Baseball online here

I've set the league size at 8

And new this year...bench players :P

Oh and I did the scoring like it is my own personal league (minus the bonus points for long TD's)

PAssing TD 3 Pts
Passing Yards
0-100 1 Pt
101-200 2 pts
201-300 3 pts
301-400 4 pts
401-500 5 pts
Interception -1 pt
Rushing TD 6 pts
Rushing Yards
0-50 1 pt
51-100 2 pts
101-150 3 pts
151-200 4 pts
201-250 5 pts
Receiving TD 6 pts
Receiving Yards
0-50 1 pt
51-100 2 pts
101-150 3 pts
151-200 4 pts
201-250 5 pts
FG
0-49 Yds 3 pts
50 yds+ 6 pts
XP 1 pt
Sack 1 pt
Fumble Recovery 1 pt
Interception 1 pt
Safety 2 pts
Shutout 6 pts
2 Point Conversion 2pts for that player

Hey Scott?  Is something wrong with the QB Passing points?  Right now Manning has 209 yards (3 points) 2 TD passes (6 points) and one INT (-1 point) but I'm only getting 7 points for him - according to what I quoted above that should be worth 8 points... I'm under the impression it's adding everything up as we go along...

I just noticed that too...all passing, rushing and receiving yards don't seem to be giving that first point

Is that something you can change or is that just how it's going to be?

Actually, it's calculated like this...

Passing Yards (100 yards per point)

you need to get to a full 100 yards for 1 point  :(

So, 209 yards would only get you 2 points.  
So, too, would 299 yards = 2 points.  

But 300 yards = 3 points.

I'm looking at it now...this free Yahoo stuff is not as customizable as some of the other Fantasy Sites (Sportsline, Fanball etc)

Right...currently I see its scoring it as this:

Rushing/Receiving
0-49 Yards 0 Points
50-99 Yards 1 points
100-149 Yards 2 points
150-199 Yards 3 Points
200+ 4 points

Passing

Rushing/Receiving
0-99 Yards 0 Points
100-199 Yards 1 points
200-299 Yards 2 points
300-399 Yards 3 Points
400+ 4 points

The only option I have for yardage is

X Yards = 1 point

I put 50 yards for Rushing/Receiving
100 Yards for Passing

So QB's aren't really worth that much compared to WRs or RB's in this league then eh?  Hell, even a Kicker scores as many points for a FG as a QB scores for a touchdown...

No...they should be all around the same...I posted the top ten last year in my league and it was

Average points per game for the top players should be around 10-12  With this point reduction it should be 8-10 probably.  I'll keep looking to see, it shouldn't effect really anything except for Goal Line backs that people might start that will get no points for the yards on a 1 yard carry besides the TD

The one thing that might be screwy is the Defense and the Kickers who may now get more points than the position players...maybe we'll need to go to a fractional point total for the yardage...let's see what that does

I said that same thing about the 4th - 5th round in this thread.

Maybe for the top 10 players this is true, but I bet if you look at the top 50 it's dominated by WRs and RBs.

That is because there is 3 more RB's and WR's than QB's

This is preposterous!  I demand satisfaction!  This scoring system is...

Ah, who the hell am I kidding, it's not like I'm going to win this thing anyway.  :P
