How to Play Fantasy Football : All About Fantasy Football’s Point System
Hello, my name is Frank Torres, and I am here
on behalf of Expert Village and this segment is on the point system in Fantasy Football.
The point system in Fantasy Football is one crazy thing. Their points are constantly being
added and subtracted throughout the course of an NFL Sunday. Let me give and example
of how a point system might work. Let’s say Peyton Manning throws a touchdown pass to
his favorite receiver Marvin Harrison. Well, Peyton Manning’s owner will be awarded at
least six points, plus the yardage from the throw. Marvin Harrison’s owner will be awarded
the score for the touchdown, usually six points, the yardage for the pass he caught and maybe
a point for the reception. Now, the owner for the defense might get points subtracted
from his score, because his defense allowed the Colts to score that touchdown. Now this
can get crazy. There are all sorts of conflict of interest the take place. What if you are
Peyton Manning’s owner and in the same weekend you have your defense playing against them.
Do you hope that Peyton Manning passes the ball all the way down to the one and then
gets stuffed, or do you let them score and then have your defense get penalized for it?
What if he throws an interception and your defense pick it off and run it all the way
backs for a touchdown. Peyton Manning will lose the points for throwing that interception
but your defense will gain the points from catching the interception and running it back
for the touchdown. It gets completely insane at times and I guess that’s why we are grateful
for point trackers.
