This is a proposal only. If you would like to look at the possibilities, go to Fantrax and create a league. I recommend avoiding the premium categories.

Positions

Offense
QB
RB
WR (2)
TE
R/W/T

Defense
DE
DT
LB
CB
S
IDP (any)

Special Teams
Kicker

Bench
Any (12)


Categories

Offense
Receptions
Touchdowns
Average Yards Per Rush
Total Yards (Rushing + Receiving)

Defense
Passes Defensed
Sacks
Takeaways
Tackles

Special Teams
Kicking Points (FG = 3; XP = 1)
Return Yards (PR + KR)

Heh... this obviously never happened.

I'd still be open to trying it for 2024 so I'll keep this thread for now.

I'd play. Another football league for me to lose in! Baseball I'm a little (lot) more obsessive about...

A league I run uses individual defensive players like this.

I'd switch. Greg stopped being manager in the Redscape Keeper League. The new manager turned off the messaging and so no trash talking, or otherwise. Makes it so much less fun! Seriously, I was like what's the point? After 20 years in the league it might be time to move on.

Updated Offensive Stat Options

Passing Yards
Receiving Yards
Receptions
Rushing Yards
Points: Many variations possible here (6, 4, or 3 pt passing TD's; Special Teams included or not)

Comments:
1. Do we want both receiving yards AND receptions?
2. The standard these days seems to be 4 point passing TD's. If we do 2 QB's, I would suggest that.


Updated Defensive Stat Options

Passes Defensed
Sacks
Takeaways
Tackles
Points: Interception Return TD's + Fumble Return TD's

Comments
1. If we drop to 4 offense, do we drop here?
2. Are points too scarce for defensive players. Do we want it at all?
3. Takeaways and safeties can be combined into a single category.


Updated Special Team Stat Options

Kicking Points: Several Options for distance and missed kicks
Kick Return Points: Return yards plus TD's

Comments:
1. Do we add a 'Special Teams' slot for you kick returner? The alternative creates quite a trade-off and some owners may simply punt the category (excuse the pun).
2. Do we even want the category?


Overall Comments

1. How many total categories do we want?
2. If we only have ten, what do we drop?

Just throwing this out there:

Total passing yards
passing yards/att
Total rushing yds
Rushing yds/att
Total receiving yds
Receiving yds/att
Total points
Defensive Team (points allowed)
Defensive Team (yards allowed)
Individual Total tackles


The only Individual Defensive category that makes sense to me are tackles. The rest don't have enough stats. There is a lot of strategy figuring team Defensive categories (matchups) . If possible, I would add points from all positions (offense, special teams, Individual and team defense)

I do like a total of 10 categories and prefer a few defensive categories. Again just spitballing ideas here.

I'm interested in exploring defense rather than making them an afterthought.

I added some defensive scoring categories to a Fantrax league I created. It will give you an idea of the numbers in play. I'll put the invite in the chat room.

Sacks + Tackle for Loss
Passes Defensed
Takeaways
Tackles
