If you ask an “expert” for advice about your points league and they don’t answer with a question then you have very likely asked the wrong person. Or perhaps just a lazy person. While many points league have similar scoring systems, how is the person you’ve solicited advice from supposed to know that a stolen base is worth two points and that your league doesn’t penalize for strikeouts. Heck maybe you and your leaguemates had one too many Skrewballs, that’s peanut butter whiskey for those of you that think I misspelled the pitch (don’t knock it till you’ve tried it), and you decided to make doubles worth more than a home run. These simple facts are going to have a direct effect on the value of a player and his comparison to the next.

For those of you that have been loyal readers (thanks), this is a topic I have touched upon more than once before, but I feel it’s extremely important to hammer home. The first thing an analyst should ask you upon receiving your inquiry is “what’s your scoring system?”. Only then can he/she provide you with an answer customized for you. Imagine logging into Amazon Prime and ordering underwear without specifying a size. You could get lucky, but more often than not you’re going to be uncomfortable. One size does not fit all when it comes to points league advice and underwear.

Even attempting to figure out a “one size fits all” scoring system is pretty much impossible as everyone has their own opinion and that flexibility to craft your own scoring system is what makes points leagues unique. For the sake of most of my posts I use the following scoring system as the basis for my content. However, when responding to questions in the comments I will always ask for your scoring system. If I don’t, move on.

RUN (+1), RBI (+1), 1B (+1), 2B (+2), 3B (+3), HR (+4), BB (+1), KO (-1), HBP (+1), SB (+2), CS (-1), SF (+1)
WIN (+5), LOSS (-5), IP (+3), K (+1), BB (-1), SAVE (+5), BLOWN SAVE (-3), ER (-1), HIT (-1)

I’m not saying this is the optimal scoring system, but it’s simple enough and close enough to many standard offerings by the major sites. However, as I said earlier the ability to move all of the many knobs up or down really gives you a wide rangle of possible scoring systems. There is actually an infinite number of possible scoring systems. Mind blown!

Take a look at the Ottoneu scoring system.

AB (-1), H (+5.6), 2B (+2.9), 3B (+5.7), HR (+9.4), BB (+3), HBP (+3), SB (+1.9), CS (-2.8)

Or how about Fanduel.

1B (+3), 2B (+6), 3B (+9), HR (+12), RBI (+3.5), R (+3.2), BB (+3), SB (+6), HBP (+3)

You can quickly see how simple, or complicated, things can become. In most regular homegrown leagues, the differences are typically found in the following categories:

Strikeouts – I think the norm is to penalize a batter for a strikeout. This is an area in which I used to feel very strongly about because a strikeout really feels like a waste of an at bat, unless you count the fact that the pitcher had to throw at least three pitchers. Some will ask why penalize for a strikeout, but not a groundout. I think the key factor here is that runners almost always fail to advance on a strikeout. In my personal leagues I attach a -1 to a strikeout, but I am in some that only subtract half a point. Let’s take a look at the effect of not penalizing for strikeouts. Based on 2019 regular season stats and the standard scoring system I mentioned above, Alex Bregman led all hitters with 624 points. Eugenio Suarez was the 40th ranked hitter with 418 points. If we give him back the 189 points we subtracted for his 189 strikeouts, he becomes the 20th ranked hitter. That’s going to make a reasonable difference when being asked if you should trade Suarez for Kris Bryant. Ignoring strikeouts, Suarez had more fantasy points than the following list of player: Francisco Lindor, Ketel Marte, Ozzie Albies, Kris Bryant, George Springer and many more.

Stolen Bases – Most leagues seem to award a player two points for stealing a base. Is a stolen base really worth more (double) than an RBI or run scored or is everyone just trying to make base stealers more draftable, thus expanding the usable player pool? If I’m being honest, I really need to think that one over a bit more. In years past I’ve counted an SB as +1, but as you can see from above I’ve changed that to +2 this year. Mostly because I want to keep the SB stat alive and mostly because I don’t think it really makes a big difference. If you really want to get creative and give base stealers a bigger draft day presence, trying making stolen bases worth three or four points. But that’s just crazy because how can a single stolen base be equal to a home run?! Suddenly Jonathan Villar is a top twenty bat!

Wins – On the pitching side of things I’ve seen wins commonly worth five, seven or even ten points. This can make a huge difference when comparing pitchers to hitters. Amongst pitchers it won’t make a huge difference as the number of wins is never a big number. Last year Justin Verlander led all pitchers with 21 wins, but there were 66 other pitchers who ended the season with double digit wins. Even if we make wins worth ten points versus five, the difference between 21 wins and 11 wins is only 50 points. While that’s not chump change I’m not sure it creates that big of a separation between pitchers. Over a 26 week season, that’s less than two points per week. However, at ten points a win and three points per inning pitched, pitchers are going to rack up way more points than hitters making the top pitchers very valuable. Using my standard pitching scoring system above with ten points for a win, Verlander would have ended 2019 atop all pitchers with 906 points. Compare that to Bregman’s 624. Quite the difference. But here’s the kicker, there are eleven pitchers with more points than the highest scoring hitter (Bregman). That’s going to have a reasonable influence on draft day decisions. My only bit of advice here is that whatever you give for a win should be the same amount subtracted for a loss. Fair is fair.

Holds – To hold or not to hold, that is the question. Should I have ended that sentence with a question mark? I know I needed to end that one with a question mark, but I’m still uncertain on the first. This really comes down to whether you want to expand the player pool. Do you want to make middle relievers relevant? While there are plenty that score the hold, I believe the majority of points leagues ignore this stat. I’d like to see the hold treated like a save and include an extra RP roster spot or two.

I could probably continue this exercise with more stat categories, but I think I’ve made my point. Something I hope to continue doing all season.

Small tip. If you want to simplify your scoring system and you typically have 1B(+1), 2B(+2), 3B(+3) and HR(+4), just do TB(+1). It’s the same thing.

    Points League H2H, 5 keepers…who do I not keep?
    Bellinger
    Arenado
    Harper
    Tatis
    Buehler
    Verlander

    P: W 10, L -5, IP 1, K 1, BBI -1 and then perks for QS, SO, NH
    B: 1pt for each base, RBI 1, R 1, SB 2, CS -1, BB 1, KO -1

      Wow!

      It might have to be Tatis. The rest are proven studs. But if you wanted to play the Tatis is young and it’s a keep forever league, then you could consider letting Verlander go considering his age, but it would be a huge blow for this season for sure. Thinking long term, it might Verlander…

      Bellinger, Arenado, Buehler are no brainers. I think Harper is too as he can easily be the top scoring bat.

      Tough call man

    H2H points, 14 team keeper league (keep 12) qs instead of wins.

    Was offered $26 Nola keep 1 year and $3 Luzardo keep 3 years for my $35 verlander keep 1 year.

    Team is competitive now and I trust verlander to get more QS than Nola/Luzardo. But upside of Luzardo over three years seems like a good way to compete for the long term.

    Other notable pitchers I have are Bieber, Giolito, Woodruff

    Would you hold or make this trade?

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:
      (link)

      I believe I would. You are also freeing up $6.

      What is your scoring system? How many points for a QS?

      But I have some questions. Do you plan to keep 12? If so, would someone get bumped by keeping both Nola and Luzardo?

  6. Dan says:

    **he said he would take $35 verlander for 1 year or $10 giolito 2 years.

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:

      Hmmm. Who are the rest of your keepers with their cost. I think I’d rather give up Giolito than Verlander, but that costs you an extra $16…

      • Dan says:
        (link)

        Thanks, 12 keepers are:

        $35 Verlander 1 year
        $10 Giolito 2 years
        $10 Woodruff 2 years
        $6 Bieber 2 years
        $20 Mondesi – 3 years
        $14 Eddie Rosario 3 years
        $14 Matt Olson 3 years
        $10 Eloy Jiminez 2 years
        $10 Vlad 2 years
        $10 Hiura 2 years
        $5 Ketel Marte 2 years
        $2 Ramon Laureano 2 years

        Also allows for two minor leaguers
        $1 Wander Franco
        $10 Luis Robert

        At the end of this year each 2 year guy can be extended for $5 a year up to 2 years.

        I can make the trade after the draft, so $ values matter less. The big consideration is whether having $3 Luzardo next year is worth losing Verlander for Nola/Luzardo this year. Can’t do it before the draft because I’d have to lose a rookie keeper for Luzardo.

        Hope that makes sense!

    16 team dynasty league question.

    I have a very solid pitching staff but could use an offense upgrade. I was offered the following:

    I give up: Walker Buehler
    I get: George Springer, Matthew Liberatore, his 1st round pick next year

    I don’t feel like I’m getting enough for Buehler. Am I?

        Yes. In B_Don’s “H2H Points Mixed Auction: Pitching for Points” article posted on March 6th:

        “Here are the points for the starting members of the teams based on Rudy’s projections. (Don’t forget to sign up for Rudy’s tools for draft season and beyond!) As you can see, Heath Cummings is projected at the top followed by Razzball’s own malamoney. Heath spent all his money on pitching and filled in with bats, and even with some questionable bats in his lineup, his team is going to be tough.”

          Nice. I usually read everything on Razzball, but I’m so swamped this week I missed that one…

  12. Latch-Key Kid says:

    The other members of my league decided they wanted to make more P relevant and less scarce on the wire. So what was decided was we’d eliminate the points for W/L/QS and bump K’s from .5 to 1, while keeping SV and HLD at 6. We also moved IP to 3 after having been at 2.5 for reasons that were always beyond my understanding.

    So it’s IP=3, K=1, H=-1, ER=-1, BB=-1, Blown Save -2

    It does some interesting things. For instance, it means Hader was the #18 and #11 overall P the last 2 years. And the elevation to RP across the board means the SPARP approach maybe isn’t automatically preferable to actual RP in those slots. And then, even with a terrible team and major HR issues, Matt Boyd was a top-25 arm. Trevor Bauer was actually 2 points better than Walker Buehler. We’ll see how it actually plays out and if we realize bringing back W/L/QS is the way to go

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:
      (link)

      I’m not sure how I feel about that change. I’m not a big fan of emphasizing closers just to make them valuable. I mean, why not do the same for catchers some way. Perhaps by giving a catcher +5 for throwing out a runner or something. The point is that some league bump up the save to make closers more relevant. In this case you are also including the middle relief guys by including holds. So you are expanding the player pool quite a bit and I think that’s cool.

      But did you also increase the number of RP spots? I think you have to with this change. At least by one.

      As for SPARP, I think I wrote a post in the past years mathematically showing how it rarely ends up being a better idea to go with the streaming two-start option at RP over the closer unless you have a bonafide stud eligible at RP. And even then you are probably better off starting that stud at SP and sitting whomever you planned to start there when your stud was at RP. I see the cram two two-start SPs at RP approach as a hail mary attempt.

      Is this a keeper league? If so, changing the scoring system really needs to be announced a year in advance so that all teams have a full season to adjust their keeper plans accordingly. Rule changes that affect roster composition really need a full year’s notice.

      With your new scoring system, how many points do the top three hitters have and how about the top three pitchers?

      • Latch-Key Kid says:
        (link)

        I’m not totally sure how I feel about it, either. They wanted to make hoarding pitchers less of a thing (we have only 15 non-injury moves for the season) and for more pitchers to be usable and valued more in line with how teams deploy guys now. (We had scored QS over W, but openers and shorter outings were eating into those totals.) It does seem to do that.

        Last year Verlander outscored the top hitter by 80. Looks like it was about a 40 pt gap the previous couple years. Third place at each looks like it’s generally about equal. It is a keeper league, but everyone looks like they’re going to keep the same number of pitchers as always.

        So it seems like yes, we have more guys scoring more points. But if the goal was to make having the top aces less imperative, I don’t think it does that. We didn’t add RP slots, but we did add 2 extra hitting spots to the standard CBS points lineup to try and deepen hitting. It’s definitely the most extensive changes we’ve made to our setup in a decade. Will be a learning year for sure as far as approach and strategy goes.

        Oh, and 2 pts for a catcher throwing out a base stealer actually has been part of our scoring since before I joined 13 years ago. Why? I don’t know. Made Tucker Barnhart more valuable than in typical leagues for a couple years, though.

    First off, thank you for all your hard work on the spreadsheet! Among your loyal followers it does not go unnoticed or unappreciated! Your are a prophet among small circles, lol.

    I think I’m most interested in seeing the value between Eloy Jimenez and Yordan Alvarez when using my scoring system. I’m debating between the 2 but have reservations about both. Does Eloy improve this year and take a major step forward or does Yordan regress because they won’t be using a garbage can? Totally torn on which keeper to stick with!

      First off, you’re welcome. Off the top of my head I’m leaning Yordan. He was crushing the ball in AAA without and garbage can nonsense. I actually plan to do a write-up specifically on him if I ever get a chance. I know how much many are hoping to get the spreadsheet so I am trying like hell to get it done. It’s a shit ton of work. I think Yordan has a fair chance of posting 40+ home runs in a full season…

    In a 12tm pts league that is very pitching heavy. Keep 8 for max 3 years in rd drafted. W=10 and SB=3 SO (hitter) =-1 otherwise normal values.

    Trying to decide on my keepers.

    A player picked up on waivers (WW) is an 18th rd keeper. If 2 WW’s its rd 18 and 19 etc.

    Keeper locks (correct me if I’m wrong – I’m pretty sure Grey doesn’t love Snell or Glasnow but at those values it seems like a no-brainer):

    Hiura (WW)
    K. Marte (25)

    Snell (10)
    Glasnow (11)
    Woodruff (16)

    Other options for three spots. (I’m leaning the 3 pitchers):
    Freeman (2)
    W. Calhoun (WW)
    Lamet (WW)
    Gallen (WW)
    Fried(WW)

    Note: Pitchers go early in our drafts because W=10…I draft 10th in rds 1 and 2 and think there will be hitters falling to me in the 2nd rd so Freeman might – MIGHT – still be there at pick #22 – that’s why he’s not a lock for me. (I may be being too cute).

    Another consideration: Most of the best SPs are kept or will be gone. Best Free agents are below. None of the teams in front of me will have keepers in 1st rd – so will be 9 picks made. DeGrom, Scherzer and Verlandeer for sure gone – maybe Clevinger too:

    Hiters Pitchers
    Mike Trout Jacob DeGrom
    Ronald Acuna Max Scherzer
    Christian Yelich Justin Verlander
    Cody Bellinger Mike Clevinger
    Mookie Betts Zack Greinke
    Nolan Arenado Noah Syndergaard
    Freddie Freeman Trevor Bauer
    Jose Ramirez Jose Berrios
    Anthony Rendon Chris Sale
    Rafael Devers David Price

    and…THANK YOU for the spreadsheet each year. It is an IMMENSE help.

      Here is how I see the first two rounds playing out:

      Round 1
      1 Mike Trout
      2 Jacob DeGrom
      3 Max Scherzer
      4 Justin Verlander
      5 Ronald Acuna
      6 Christian Yelich
      7 Cody Bellinger
      8 Mookie Betts
      9 Mike Clevinger
      ME -10 Nolan Arenado
      11 Zack Greinke
      12 Flaherty (k)

      Round 2
      1 JD Martinez (k)
      2 Francisco Lindor (k)
      3 Alex Bregman (k)
      4 Noah Syndergaard
      5 Freddie Freeman
      6 Jose Ramirez
      7 Jose Altuve (k)
      8 Stephen Strasburg (k)
      9 Anthony Rendon
      ME – 10 Rafael Devers
      11 Trea Turner (k)
      12 Trevor Bauer

      Could see Bauer and even Berrios going early in round 2 – this league is pitcher crazy…

        This is quite a complex question. I am working as fast as I can to build the spreadsheet which will help with these answers.

        Would you rather have Devers or Freeman?

        • Jason says:

          I would definitely prefer Freeman to Devers (just a longer track record – seems safer to me). The question is do I give up one of the high upside pitchers (I guess I could draft them again) to lock-in Freeman? I took another look at my projected draft – this time using points ADP…looks like I could possibly get Freeman in Rd. 2 anyway or Clevinger would still be on the board and may be a better choice anyway…WWMD?!

          Round 1
          1 Mike Trout
          2 Jacob DeGrom
          3 Justin Verlander
          4 Max Scherzer
          5 Christian Yelich
          6 Mookie Betts
          7 Ronald Acuna
          8 Cody Bellinger
          9 Zack Greinke
          ME -10 Nolan Arenado
          11 Jose Berrios
          12 Flaherty (k)

          Round 2
          1 JD Martinez (k)
          2 Francisco Lindor (k)
          3 Alex Bregman (k)
          4 Aaron Nola
          5 Anthony Rendon
          6 Jose Ramirez
          7 Jose Altuve (k)
          8 Stephen Strasburg (k)
          9 Freddie Freeman
          ME – 10 Charlie Blackmon
          11 Trea Turner (k)
          12 Mike Clevinger

    Will you be dropping your 2020 points spreadsheet this year/any time soon? Excellent resource

    Any shot this chart will be released today? Have my draft tomorrow at 11 AM EST and was hoping we’d have it as it proved extremely useful last year,

    Thanks!

      Unfortunately, no. I am close though. And the work I’ve done will make it easier to push updates and get it out quicker in the future.

      Although I do suggest you postpone your draft. And not because of my spreadsheet…

        My damn league wants to go ahead and draft on Tuesday, which I am against. I am in desperate need of the sheet before then! Please [email protected]@@@! Please! Thanks for your hard work.

    Mala you are the best! You help me every year with my points league. I just want to thank you for your dedication and the help you have given so much of us. I know you have gotten a lot of questions about the spreadsheet but so you have any update to when it will be coming out? I have my draft tomorrow night and I always use your spreadsheet. Won’t lie, I’m sweating profusely with just th e thought of drafting without it.
    Thanks again though for your awesome work over the years, there is a reason I keep coming back for more.

      Let the man work in the spreadsheet! He is no time for your questions ! Lol.

    Last couple years there was a tool where points leagues could adjust rankings due to their league specific point setting. It was intuitive and could be used during draft to mark off players as it went. Any idea if there’s a version for this year that we could use? It was a tremendous asset!

      Posted prior to reading through the comments…looks like the spreadsheet will be back for the 2020 season! Thanks again for your efforts on that!

      In the next day or so. I am working on it, but it’s a lot of work and with all that’s going on, it has been difficult to give it my full attention.

      Sorry for any delay. With that said, I do suggest leagues postpone their drafts.

    Spreadsheet on delay due to season being pushed back?
    Appreciate all you do, thanks
