What is PPR Fantasy Football?

The letters PPR are used to talk about a niche type for NFL fantasy football that people play across the internet. PPR or Point Per Reception is given this name because in this style of fantasy football league a person will get points for every reception that a running back, wide receiver or tight end gets in their respective league.

Even though the name is point per reception, different PPR leagues will often not give a full point for every reception. Some leagues may only give out a half a point for every reception while others could give out a 1/4 of a point for every reception in the league.

Obviously, fantasy football owners will want to pay attention to just how many points they receive in their respective league because it can make players that get a lot of receptions more valuable.

Just take Brandon Marshall’s great game from the end of the 2009 season, for example. In a week 14 game against the Indianapolis Colts, Marshall had 21 receptions NFL single game record) for 200 yards and two touchdowns.

If you are in a PPR fantasy football league that gives one point for every reception, Marshall would have scored 21 fantasy points for his receptions alone!

That would have been a huge day and defiantly lead PPR fantasy football owners into the next round of their fantasy playoffs.

This example shows you the power of a fantasy player that cannot only make the big touchdowns and yardage totals but also catch the football to be an ultimate fantasy player for your fantasy football team.
