QBs in 6-pt/Passing TD Leagues
by Mike Horn
Staff Writer, FantasyGuru.com

There have been several questions lately about the impact on player values of a scoring system that awards 6 points for passing TDs (instead of the 4 points common in many leagues). This is my attempt to answer that analytically.

Who benefits?

There are two parts to this question. First, which individual QBs are better in a 6 point passing TD format?  Second, how does this scoring affect the values of QBs compared to other positions when drafting?

For this article, I’ll use this yardage scoring: 10 yards rushing/receiving = 1 pt; 25 yards passing = 1 pt; rushing/receiving TD = 6 pts. No points for receptions or point penalties for turnovers, and of course I’ll be comparing 4 vs. 6 points for passing TDs.

Individual QBs

Over the last 10 years, how would the ranks of individual QBs vary from 4 point to a 6 point per passing TD scoring system?  Not much:

    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
