After some years of playing fantasy baseball I finally joined up with a fantasy football league. Because I got in pretty late, I am just now scrambling to figure out strategy, etc. for the coming season (draft is Sept 2). The big thing I am trying to get a handle on is how the scoring of my new league should affect my draft strategy (12 teams, snake draft, I'm drafting tenth position). My new league is a points-per-reception league, and in fact (from what I can tell) it weighs receptions heavier than most PPR leagues: you get 5 points per reception by a RB; 1 point per reception by a WR, and 1.5 points per reception for a TE. The other scoring rules look fairly standard (again, from what I can tell), with the exception that you get 3 points per FG under 40 yds, 4 points for 40-49 yard FGs; and 5 points for FGs 50 yards and over.
So I am right that these scoring rules are more heavily weighted to receptions, especially by RBs, than typical PPR leagues? If so, any suggestions on how I should tweak the razzball rankings accordingly for my needs?
Thanks for your help.
