We’ve had a lot of requests for analysis on leagues in which QB gets 6 points per TD pass, so here’s a look at Mike Horn’s statistical breakdown of these types of leagues.
QBs in 6-pt/Passing TD Leagues

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.
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.
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:
