I recently took a retrospective at what the fantasy community could do to make the quarterback position more important to our fun game. The main argument I made was that quarterback is the most important position in sports but not very important at all in fantasy. A position so scarce in the NFL just isn’t scarce at all in fantasy. I think that’s problematic, while others don’t.
For those rebels who like the idea of mixing up scoring systems, I have good news – I decided to do it for every position.
The next position I worked with is running back. So, how broken is running back scoring? There are arguments made in favor of points per reception (PPR) and those against it. Point per first down (PP1D) scoring has gained some traction in the last year or two thanks in no small part to John Paulsen and Scott Fish’s Scott Fish Bowl. I started using a PP1D variant in my The Bull Horn leagues last year, and I’ve continued to love it.
