All defensive rankings by position through Week 7

October 22, 2008

It seemed like the PDF was the best way to display those sheets from last week rather than a post for each position, so I’ll go that route from now on unless I get significant complaints. Here’s another breakdown of the scoring: 4 pts per passing TD, 6 pts per rushing and receiving TDs, 1 point per reception, .02 pts per passing yard, .05 pts per rushing/receiving yard, -1 for INTs.

The quarterback scoring is based on ALL QBs that play in a game. So if Damon Huard, Tyler Thigpen and Brodie Croyle all play, their yards, TDs and INTs are all added together.

No. 1 and No. 2 WRs are based on the depth chart and their scoring tallied as such. In-game injuries are not taken into account, but if a usual No. 2 or No. 1 receiver misses a game, everyone is bumped up accordingly.

No. 3 WRs includes ALL WRs who are not No. 1 or No. 2 receivers. So if five other receivers tally stats in a game, all five of them are added together to get the final numbers.

Primary running back is whichever running back tallies the most carries in that particular game. So for teams that go with two-back systems, the No. 1 back could change on a weekly basis. The secondary backs stats tally all the rest of the runners who put up statistics in that particular game.

Tight ends are like quarterbacks in that ALL tight end statistics accumulated in any game are considered in the scoring.

Kickers are simply three points per field goal, one point per extra point, -3 points for missed field goals.

Note: I do not factor in lost fumbles in these numbers, so there is some slight deviation as a result. However, the difference is not enough to make any significant impact on the rankings.
