As the season draws nearer it’s time to look at our current scoring settings and see if any tweaks should be made. It seems that every year Yahoo releases a few new features in the scoring department, all seemingly with intriguing possibilities. Personally, as both Commish and steward of the archives, I generally like to keep as much consistency as possible which allows for more successful season to season comparisons. That said, one must remember that MLOM is also a dynamic league that is ever-evolving, like an all-pro working yet harder each year to make himself even better. As such it’s worth looking at all new options, even if we make no changes.

A summary of the new option highlights this year include bonuses for 40+ yard plays (passing, rushing, receiving) for both TD and non-TD plays, as well as potential extra penalties for QB picks-for-six. For defensive scoring, some additional possibilities include points based on yards allowed, fourth down stops, and 3 and outs. Intriguing stuff to be sure.
As of right now, I’ve changed nothing and kept scoring exactly the same (viewable under the “Scoring & Settings” tab on the league home page), but I’m thinking about these things and at least considering some minor changes. I tend to be a dictator when it comes to selecting the scoring settings because one can’t please everyone, but I like input from the league as well. Anyone have any thoughts on these possible scoring options?
