Yahoo Fantasy Football Projections 2021

These are our 2021 Yahoo Fantasy Football Projections. You can use these scoring predictions if you are in a Yahoo league using Yahoo default scoring. Yahoo resembles a Half-PPR league format for QB, RB, WR, and TE, with scoring otherwise the same as most standard formats except for the 0.5 points per reception.

The Kicker scoring does not penalize for misses, but does have yardage bonuses for made field goals. On defense, you can get a big bonus for shutouts (10 points) and for allowing 1-6 points (7 points in Yahoo scoring). But predicting those types of games are not easy. There is no penalty or bonuses for yards allowed on defense.

Do Not Draft Directly Off These Yahoo Fantasy Football Projections

This page provides projections and is sorted by total projected fantasy points. But you should draft based on value, and the difference in how much a player will score relative to others at the same position that you could draft later. 

Quarterbacks, for example, tend to rank highly in scoring, but since most leagues start only one at a time, their value is suppressed. To see how we suggest you draft players, you should go to our Yahoo Fantasy Football Rankings page.
