• Points leagues are a great spot to shoot fish in a barrel because they’re often (but not always) full of beginners who are trying to emulate the simplicity (or fun) of fantasy football leagues. There are ‘some’ leagues that do incorporate standard league elements, including penalties for missed field goals and free throws, and some include points for just about anything including double-doubles, triple-doubles and even ejections.

    The most common points leagues will generally omit the percentages, though. And that sets up a lot of opportunity for owners that can simply take their projections and apply them to the scoring system. Many owners take a standard league rankings sheet into these drafts, or go by ADPs that are largely generated by players in standard formats. When an owner takes B150 projections into these leagues it can be unfair.

    FANTRAX POINTS LEAGUES

    Points: 1
    Rebounds: 1.25
    Assists: 1.5
    Steals: 2
    Blocks: 2
    Turnovers: -1

    This format is a bit more comparable to standard leagues, but not enough to give a meaningful comparison. If you look around on the “internet” you will find many systems that do a better job at that. In this format the scoring is still vastly favoring offense as a 20-point scorer is getting 20 points compared to a 4.0 combined steals and blocks guy getting just eight. The tweaks on rebounds and assists keep you a little bit more honest than in CBS leagues when drafting forwards and centers, but as is the case with CBS you’re looking for guys that get buckets.
