If you would like to find out what the standard scoring is for NFL.com and the other four major sites, we have those available on the link below. Fantasy Info: Internet Fantasy Football Standards 2009 Below we have listed one player from every position and why we feel that player is primed for a good year in NFL.com standard scoring leagues. Quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers– In an NFL.com league it is kind of like Fox Sports and CBS sportsline leagues in that you get 6 points for every touchdown pass and -2 points for every interception. This means you want to find quarterbacks that not only can make a high touchdown total but also do not throw a lot of interceptions.
Rodgers had a total of 32 touchdowns last year and only throw 13 interception in his first year as a starting quarterback. Those are very impressive numbers for a player that is just starting out in his playing career.
Look for Rodgers as high as the 3rd or 4th round in 12 team leagues this coming season for your NFL.com league.
Just about every major standard online league has the same standard scoring system for runners, receivers and tight ends.
What this means is that it does not matter how long your touchdowns comes from, it could be a 60 yard bomb or a 1 yard touchdown plunge, you still get 6 points for the score. In some ways you could say that these leagues are even more important to have players that accumulate good yardage totals.
Maurice Jones-Drew– We have all waited for this running back to be the star and the feature player. Now that Fred Taylor has left town, Jones-Drew has the full opportunity to succeed on the ground and in the receiving game as well.
No one needs to questions Maurice’s ability to get into the end zone as he has accumulated 38 touchdowns in his first three season in the league! That is an amazing start for a players career. Wide Receivers T.J. Houshmandzadeh – Other then Houshmandzdeh’s down year a season ago without Carson Palmer on the field, this receiver has been very solid. He is not a game breaker like Randy Moss but he is a very good standard league scoring internet league receiver. Look for Housh to bounce back this season and have a 100 catches, 1,250 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2009. Tight Ends
Greg Olsen – This tight end is primed for a great season with his new quarterback Jay Cutler at the helm. Olsen improved his numbers from his rookie season last year with over 50 catches and 5 touchdowns.
Look for this talented tight end to make the pro bowl as he accumulates over 70 catches and makes a run at a 1,000 yards receiving.
Out of the big five fantasy sites for standard fantasy football play, NFL.com and CBS sportsline offer the lowest point scoring structure for kickers. At this point in time they give only 3 points to a kicker for field goals of 49 yards or less. But they do give 5 points for 50 yard plus field goals and that is standard for all leagues.
Stephin Gostkowski– This field goal kicker may not blow you away with a bunch of long bomb field goals, but he is the most steady kicker in the game. A big part of this is because he is on the Patriots and they put a lot of points.
What is also nice about a kicker like this is that his team tends to score just about every week, so you can count on him for consistency throughout the season.
Defense and ST
At first glance the NFL.com scoring system for defenses is probably the weakest of the top 5 sites. But at the same time they do not penalize your team in points if your defense gives up to many points.
This is nice because it takes away from the worry that you could lose points just because the team gave up 28 points that week.
Ravens- Look for the Ravens to have another fine season as Ray Lewis gets another year older. This defense will be greatly helped by their offenses massive offensive line and quality running game.
With the ability to stuff the run and a new found success against the pass, look for the Ravens to have a fine season for your NFL.com fantasy football team.
Good luck in your NFL.com league in 2009 and we wish you all the success for this season and beyond.
