RULES: SCORING FORMATS

Updated: March 13, 2009, 11:15 AM ET

Below is a comprehensive list of all scoring categories available in ESPN Fantasy Football 2009. Each category lists the Standard game settings as well as all options available in the Custom game. In the Custom game the specific categories and their corresponding point values can be edited by the League Manager to fit your league's scoring system. The numbers displayed in the brackets, i.e. <1, 5, 10>, show the available buckets to be selected. Decimal values are allowed to the nearest tenth of a point (i.e., 1.4 or -6.3, NOT 2.34) for each category. If your league is already setup, view your "League Settings" page to see how your league scores each category.

NOTE: Scoring categories and their corresponding point values can be changed by the League Manager at any time during the season (Custom League only). If either are changed after the season has begun, the system will automatically change all previous game results to match the changed settings.
