Here's a fact that I hadn't noticed in the updated scoring: Passing yards are awarded as a point per every 25 yards passing as opposed to the usual 20. Mitigates the benefit of the extra 2 points per passing TD a bit, doesn't it.
Does that change any of your positions?
I'm pretty sure the standard value is 25 pass yards per point..
Anyway I guess I will write this one more time since i'm not sure it sunk in the first time I wrote it...
Aaron Rodgers (1st round pick)
Throws 45 tds
6 point per td league = 270 points
4 point per td league = 180 points
A 6 point per pass td league gives Rodgers a 90 points increase.
Tony Romo (4th-5th round pick)
Throws 30 tds
6 point per td league = 180 points
4 point per td league = 120 points
A 6 point per pass td league gives Romo a 60 points increase.
So, over the entire 16 games, you are gaining a total of 30 points by selecting Rodgers over Romo is a 6 point per pass td league.
So, over the course of each individual game, you are gaining a total of 1.875 points per game by selecting Rodgers over Romo is a 6 point per pass td league.
Now, is a maximum of 1.875 points per game reason enough to change your entire draft strategy in a 6 point per pass td league? I would say no...
