Perfecting Fantasy Scoring

Being a new commissioner in a league can be daunting. There are so many different aspects of the game that you might never had even considered. From arbitrating disputes between owners to getting everyone to agree on a time to draft.

In my experience as a commissioner, I have found that the single toughest part of being commish is getting the scoring settings right. Over the past few year my partner and I have fine tuned our league’s scoring to best reflect the importance of all the nuances of the game. Quarterbacks actually matter, as does their accuracy. Bonuses are a must for a player.

Below I will get into the nitty gritty of it. I would like to note beforehand that some platforms might not allow access to all of these setting or might not be as detailed (i.e. won’t let .25 be an input).

Here we go.
