What is Standard Scoring in Fantasy Football?
Standard scoring is a way of describing the most basic form of fantasy football scoring. It is the universal way a league decides how players score points, and how much those points are. In simplistic terms, there are no weird scoring rules added to the league and the point values will be similar across all leagues. However, every fantasy football league may have their own variation of standard scoring with some values changed.
Below is an example of some standard scoring point values.
Receiving/rushing 10 yards
Passing 25 yards
Field goal (39 yards or less)
Field goal (40-49 yards)
Field goal (50-59 yards)
Field goal (60+ yards)
Variations of Standard Scoring
PPR (half point, full point)
IDP or individual defensive performance adds in points for defensive players. In most leagues, only offensive players can be drafted and have their totals counted, but in these types of leagues defensive players are thrown into the mix. New values are assigned for actions such as tackles, interceptions, fumbles, and sacks.
