Scott Fish Bowl: #SFBX Projections and Historical Scoring

We are less than two weeks from the kickoff of the 2020 Scott Fish Bowl (#SFBX)! The scoring format is largely unchanged from #SFB8 and includes a points-per-first-down scoring component and a points-per-reception component.

 

The biggest scoring change for this season is at the quarterback spot. However, for those of you who are new to the Scott Fish Bowl/points per first down (PP1D) formats, here’s a quick primer.

Chasing Volume

The PP1D format appears to offer a more nuanced scoring alternative to the PPR format. Given that the fantasy output for wide receivers, running backs, and tight ends can be tied back to volume, it follows that first downs and volume are inextricably linked. Here’s a good way to think about it: targets and touches are the lifeblood of PP1D scoring.

Top-36 Historical Finishes Under #SFBX Scoring

To test whether the #SFBX scoring format adversely altered end-of-season rankings on a points-per-game basis,[1] I calculated the final #SFBX finishes for non-quarterback positions over the past five seasons, using the current scoring. Let’s take a deeper dive into the #SFBX scoring format and figure out the best way to attack our drafts.
