Scoring

Football (NFL)

Scoring for NFL games is divided into two categories, Offense and Defense. Please be sure to check the scoring rules for each contest because there could be some nuances like a lineup with no kickers. Note that negative yardage affects a player's score. For example, a player with -3 net rushing yards will score -0.3. Also note that all points scored while your DST is on the field (i.e. points vs. defense or special teams) will count as Points Allowed. Points scored against an offense (e.g. interception returned for a TD) do not count as DST Points Allowed.

Offense Defense
Passing Yard = 0.04 pts Sack = 1 pt
Passing TD = 4 pts Interception = 2 pts
Interceptions = -1 pt Interception Return TD = 6 pts
300+ Passing Yards = 3 pts Fumble Recovery = 2 pts
