    CowboysZone Fantasy Football Leagues

    The season is right around the corner and many of the Cowboy faithful will be looking to join a new league and compete against fellow fans/board members. I would like to organize this effort (along with some help) by getting leagues organized now. The idea would be 12 man leagues and the rules will be uniform across all leagues. We most likely will be using Yahoo since its free. If you're interested in playing, leave your name and email address and I'll keep you posted when registration opens. If you have any questions, let me know.

    CowboysZone Scoring System: Performance Based
    This scoring system is a performanced based scoring system. It's designed to allow the best players from each position score generally about the same. It's balanced so no one position is more important that the other. This balanced scoring makes the draft more fair and leads towards more competitive teams. I believe that every yard or score that your player does on the field should count towards your team's score. So, this scoring system does not round off to the nearest point. Instead it uses decimal scoring to 2 decimal places. That means for every yard your QB throws for, you get credit. I have used this system since 1999 and it works great.

    Of the Top 30 players each year here's the breakdown :

    Year 2000, 09 QBs, 11 RBs, and 10 WRs.
    Year 2001, 11 QBs, 08 RBs, and 11 WRs.
    Year 2002, 12 QBs, 12 RBs, and 06 WRs.
    Year 2003, 13 QBs, 10 RBs, and 07 WRs.
    Year 2004, 12 QBs, 08 RBs, and 09 WRs

    Passing:
    Yards passing divided by 20 (e.g. 215 passing yards = 10.75 fantasy points).
    4 points for every passing TD.
    -1 for every interception thrown.
    2 points for every 2-point conversion.

    Rushing:
    Yards rushing divided by 10 (e.g. 89 rushing yards = 8.9 fantasy points).
    6 points for every rushing TD.
    1 point per reception
    2 points for every 2- point conversion.

    Receiving:
    Yards receiving divided by 10 (e.g. 112 receiving yards = 11.2 fantasy points)
    6 points for every receiving TD.
    1 point for every catch.
    2 points for every 2-point conversion.

    All Other TDs:
    6 points for any TD scored by recovered or returned fumbles, laterals, or any other means by which a skill position player (QB, RB, WR, TE, or K) is awarded an individual TD, except kickoff and punt returns. No rushing or receiving yardage is awarded for a TD returned on a fumble.

    Placekicking:
    1 point for every Extra Point
    3 points for every FG of 1 – 39 yards
    4 points for every FG of 40 – 49 yards
    5 points for every FG of 50+ yards

    f. Team Scoring (Defense/Special Teams):
    1 point for every sack
    2 points for every team takeaway (interception or fumble recovery)**
    6 points for every TD (via interception return, fumble return, punt or kickoff return, blocked FG return, missed FG return, blocked punt return)*
    *5 points for every safety
    5 points for every shutout ***
    2 points for allowing between 1- 5 points ***
    1 point for allowing between 6 – 10 points ***

    * TDs scored on “fake” FGs or “fake” punts do NOT count as Defense/Special Teams scoring. TDs scored by the offensive team after a blocked FG or blocked punt do NOT count as a Defense/Special teams score. TDs scored on a double turnover only count for the individual player who scored the TD, not for the team.

    ** A double turnover is considered points for the recovering team’s defense and ST. Thus, an example, team A’s offense fumbles and team B’s defense recovers, but then fumbles the ball back to team A’s offense. In that scenario team A’s defense and special teams (along with team B’s defense and ST) are both awarded a fumble recovery.

    *** Any and all points scored against a team are considered points scored against the special teams and defense. Thus, as an example, a turnover by the offense that is returned for a TD is considered as points scored against the special teams and defense.

    Sounds good, count me in, I'll pm you with my email address. I really like that scoring system, only thing i would change is to give more points for a shutout or more points for the Defense keeping a team less than 10 points per game. Just a sugestion, anyway - looking forward to playing.

    Live Draft: Tue Aug 2 4:15pm PDT (7:15pm EST)

    If you cant make this draft date, please don't sign up or at least someone that will represent your team. All of the CZ leagues will be drafting in August, please plan accordingly. If majority rules, we can make an automatic draft based on owner cheatsheets. If this works best, we can take a vote.
