Commissioner Corner Message Board
I am going to start a league so I want to know what people prefer more. Personally I don't care (I will just draft accordingly) but I want to make it a 12 or 14 team money league so I want to know what more people prefer. Your opinion is appreciated!!!
Also, if your interested in joing a money ($50) let me know and I will keep you posted.
Now that that's settled...check out the league.

its a TD Pass not a TD...they're not the same. And the reason why they are 4 is to keep it balanced. A good QB will throw over 30 TD's....you won't see any position player even get into the 20's. If you put a TD pass to 6 instead of 4......you will give the QB's too much value. You'd have average to bad QB's getting more value than good players at other positions. It too much to give for a TD pass. I mean, it would apply to all the teams, so for the league, its even. But it does give QB's more value than any other position.

QB's also more likely to throw INT, FUMBLE and get SACKED
a lot of leagues have -1 point for being sacked but throwing int and fumbling is always plausible.
Then you have yards being 1.5x less per point. either 1pt = 25 or 30 yards while RB and WR yards are 1pt = 10 yards.
So a TD is a TD no matter who scores it. having 6 pts per TD doesn't give the QB any more value. QB's should be expected to get you between 20-30pt a game.
and yes QB is more valuable then any other position. Thats why theres only 1 and theres 2-3 WR/RB on a team.
Its 6, why the standard format is 4 is soooooo stupid.
A TD is a TD. whether its your kicker picking up a fumble and running it in or a TD pass. Should only be 6 and nothing else. MAYBE and a BIG MAYBE 7 points. But since the kicker gets the extra point I really wouldn't want that. Go with 6. I think the majority always play with 6 anyways so you have a better chance of getting more people anyways.
a TD is a TD....so why make it worth 4 instead of 6? best i understand, people do this to even up the fact that there are only so many elite QBs to go around...so they use the 4 pt TD to even the playing field. my thinking is...why do that? let people make up the difference by outdrafting the competition at other positions. this falls into the same category as PPR leagues. trump up unreal value to wideouts to give them more value. makes no sense to me...and gets into the realm of playing kiddie ball rather than football.
6 Point games are the best. Its stupid to have a quarterback throw a touchdown and then have your opponents kicker kick a long field goal and have more points than your quarterback. Thanks for the post.
