Basics of Fantasy Football

In fantasy football, you can compete against your friends by having real life football players on your "fantasy" team. You get these players on your team by drafting them or trading for them with other people. The goal of fantasy football is for you to score more points then the person you are going up against every week. The fantasy season is usually 16 weeks, and you have the playoffs for fantasy in the last weeks of the NFL regular season.

Scoring in Fantasy Football

Each player you draft earns points for your team based on their play in the actual game. However, scoring in fantasy football isn't uniform, and depending on your league different plays can have different values. For example: touchdowns, field goals, interceptions, sacks, and safeties can all have a different score value depending on the league. Since the rules of the league are what dictates the scoring, people will draft and trade based upon their leagues individual rules.

PPR Scoring

In a fantasy league there are many different options for how players earn points, but one of the most important ones is PPR. PPR stands for Point Per Reception, and means that for every time a player receives (catches) the football they get a point. This change typically makes PPR leagues much higher scoring then a standard league, and changes the emphasis on players. In a PPR league, players will more often target players who get lots of receptions. PPR makes wide receivers much more valuable because of this, while running backs who receive the ball often also get a boost.

PPR Players

One type of player that benefits the most from PPR are wide receivers that may not get lots of yards or touchdowns, but get lots of catches. Additionally, running backs who mainly catch the football, referred to as receiving backs, have a higher value also as receiving backs don't get as much yardage running or opportunities to score touchdowns in the endzone, but get lots of catches. While PPR makes wide receivers more valuable, running backs are still the most important player on your fantasy team as the top running backs usually receive the ball and run it, letting them get points for receptions also.

Half Point PPR

In addition to PPR and standard there is also an option to do half point PPR which is where your players get half a point for each reception. Half point PPR still gives some benefit to wide receivers and receiving backs who get a lot of catches. However, half point PPR makes the scores of the games less then PPR, and it makes yards and touchdowns more valuable than in a PPR league.

FAQ

What is PPR in fantasy football?

PPR in fantasy football refers to the scoring in the league. PPR stands for points per reception, and means that for every time a player catches the ball they get a point. This is a setting for scoring in the league and is usually decided upon by the commissioner of the league. The commissioner can either do PPR, half point per reception, or no points for receptions. Nowadays, most fantasy football leagues will use PPR, or half point per reception in their leagues.

What is the difference between standard and PPR in fantasy football?

The difference between a standard scoring league and a PPR league is that in a standard league players do not get you points for catching the ball. Meanwhile, in a PPR league, a player gets you a point per reception (catch) that they get. This usually means that in a PPR league games will be higher scoring then in a standard. Furthermore, in a PPR league, typically receivers will be more valuable than in a standard league.

What types of players are best in PPR?

Players that are best in a PPR based league are typically wide receivers and running backs that also catch the ball (receiving backs). In a PPR league you want to get receivers that are their team's number one option. This means that it's a receiver who will get the most targets (balls thrown to them) per game. Moreover, running backs that also get a high amount of targets are valuable, as they can get more points then running backs who don't catch the ball.

Who are the best PPR players?

The top PPR players in fantasy football still tend to be running backs, as an elite running back is harder to get then a good receiver. Moreover, if it's a running back that also receives at a high level, then they are even more valuable in a PPR league. According to fantasy data the top ten best PPR players are: Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, Alvin Kamara, Ezekiel Elliott, Dalvin Cook, Michael Thomas, Davante Adams, Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Austin Ekeler.
