6 Point TD for Passing TD's

Post by 12 Gauge Shotgu » Wed, 29 Jul 1998 04:00:00


It occasionally gets mentioned, but how does everyone feel about draft
strategy for performance leagues that award 6 points for all TD's.  Should
you concentrate on RB's or QB's in the first 3 rounds?

I personally feel that I should draft QB, RB, RB in that order, regardless
of my draft pick position (unkown at this time).

BTW - It is the first season of a keeper league, so youth and longevity
count (i.e. how many GOOD young QB and RB's are there?)

Thoughts, suggestions.....?

I disagree with you.  If you lock yourself into taking QB RB RB, you will be
making a mistake.  The top 3 are still Favre, Davis and Sanders whichever order
but still there.  There are also more QB that will throw 20 + tds than RB that
will score 12 + TD.  So the top running backs are just as important in a 6 pt
for throwing league as a 3.

You're probably right. In this kind of league, if you're QB throws 3 TDs
and the other QB just one, you are up on him by 12 points instead of the
usual six where passing TDs count just three. You can make up the six
easily somewhere else, but if it's 12 points you have to make up you are
hurting. The guy who gets Favre in this kind of league is in really great
shape.

I really find it hard to believe that there is balance in your league
w/this type of scoring. Terrell Davis who will be a top two RB pick
scored 15 times last year - very good numbers!! Gus Ferrotte, an average
QB at best, stupid as well(who else would head ***a hard wall) scored
17 td''s last year. You can't EVER convince me that Gus is better than
Terrell. I will always be in favor for fantasy leagues that score less
for throwing TD's than those that are run or caught.

6 Point TD for Passing TD's

there is an easy way to find out
say you're in a 12 team league
find out how much the #1 qb scored in your scoring system
and the #12 qb...take the difference
now take the difference between the #1 rb and the #12 rb.
the larger difference will probably be a more important position.
instead of total points you might want to do take the difference between
pts/game for each position (pts/game is probably more important than
total points to fantasy league owners).

I like 6 pts for a passing TDs.  It helps bring balance. In our league, all TDs
are 6pts and
we give all positions; except QB, .5pt for every 10 yds.  Since you only start
one QB
Rbs are still more important but by a slim
margin.

In my league all td's are worth 6 (even passing)
1 pt for every 10 yards receiving or rushing 1 pt fpr every 25 yards
thrown.

Beleive it or not it does make it even. Barry Sanders and Terrell Davis
both scored more total points than Brett Favre.

I like to think that fantasy football should be as realistic as
possible.  In the NFL, a good QB is 10X more valuable to a team then a
good RB.  That's reality.  I'm sure NFL owners think it sucks too!

Ah, yes, my short-sighted friend. What isn't mentioned here is that many of
these league penalize you 4 pts per interception. Making a huge imbalance
between the QBs themselves, especially erratic ones and making RBs valuable
and reliable sources of points. In fact one league I am in is 6 PT PER INT
penalty. Taking away an touchdown for every interception.
1 TD & 2 INT a'la Scott Mitchell = -6 pts........hope the yardage bonus is
big.

These make strategy and projecting points very important. You keep your
no-brainer 3pt per passing TD and I will continue in leagues where
strategies continue to play a role.

I've always thought of 4 pts as being the right proportion.  That
makes 3 TDs by a QB equal to a 2 TDs by a RB, a pretty good day
for both.

I've also seen 6pts for passing TD, -3 for an interception, which
isn't too bad either.  This reduces a typical QBs points for
pass TDs by about a third, which is also 4pts.  Makes it
interesting when a QB has a bad day, you can actually lose
a lead during a late game - negative points!

It doesn't matter at all, as long as you are using a value-based
drafting system. So what if Favre scores 30 points a week? You still
need the best available player at his position.

Just for the record, there is 2 point penalty for interceptions.

I'll probably not "lock" myself into drafting a QB first, but if I can get
one of the young studs vs 30 year old Barry Sanders, it may be still worth
it to take a QB.  My overall approach will be what Big Dog suggests in his
post, look for the most value available and try to figure out what will be
out there later.  Knowing most peoples tendencies to start picking WR in the
2/3 rounds, I should be able to get really good QB and RB's.

I tend to agree with Mr. Bowman - about the concept that is.  I'd say 4
(maybe 4.5) for passing TD's is fair.  3 is definitely too few, 6 is way too
much.

6 Point TD for Passing TD's

Post by DLPHN » Fri, 31 Jul 1998 04:00:00

6 points for all touchdowns.  A TD is a TD.  I can never understand why there
is a general consensus to give QB's 3 points for a TD.  Is it easier to throw a
TD than to catch one?  Does anyone know why most leagues only give 3 for
throwing one?
