Scoring Settings for Standard Leagues (Free & Prize Eligible)
STANDARD SCORING OPTIONS
Below is a comprehensive list of all scoring categories available in ESPN Fantasy Football Free Standard Leagues. Each category lists the Standard game settings View your "League Settings" page to review how your league scores each category.

NOTE: Bonus scoring categories do NOT stack. Game bonuses all specify ranges (100-199 vs. 200+). In the case of individual running, passing, and receiving plays, however, all relevant bonuses apply. It's recommended that LM's pick one or the other.

Example 1:

If an LM sets a 5 point bonus for a 100-199 Yard Rushing Game and a 10 point bonus for a 200+ Yard Rushing Game then a Running Back who has a 205 yard game will receive 10 points for having a 200+ Yard Rushing Game.

Example 2:

The default scoring for Field Goals are as follows:

  • FG Made (50+ yards) = 5pts
  • FG Made (40-49 yards) = 4pts
  • FG Made (0-39 yards) = 3pts

A kicker who makes a field goal from 52 Yards will receive a total of 5 points.

NOTE: A fumble recovery, for the purposes of fantasy, is considered the recovery of a fumble lost, i.e. a change of possession. Players who recover a fumble to prevent a change of possession will receive no points.

ESPN Custom Leagues
ESPN Custom leagues allow the league creator to select from a robust set of rules and scoring options to create the league of their dreams. The customizing options are bascially the same as are available in League Manager (LM) leagues. The chief difference between an ESPN Custom league and an LM league is that once the ESPN Custom league is created all settings are locked. ESPN Custom leagues do not have a League Manager and operate the same as Standard Free leagues, but with unique settings.

ESPN Custom League Key Points:

  • Custom rules/scoring settings
  • No League Manager
  • Settings lock upon creation.(Draft Dates and Time can be changed by league referendum)
  • Offline Draft, Keepers and Draft Picks are not available options
