Yahoo Fantasy Football Rankings 2021 

These are our 2021 Yahoo Fantasy Football rankings for those that are in a Yahoo league using their default scoring system. 

Yahoo scoring mostly resembles Half-PPR scoring format, with:

  • 0.5 points per reception

  • One point for every 25 passing yards;

  • Four points for every passing TD;

  • One point for every 10 rushing or receiving yards;

  • Six points for every rushing or receiving TD

We will also note that Yahoo only counts off -1 points for interceptions thrown, reducing the negative impact of interceptions on scoring.

Kickers get yardage bonuses for kicks over 40 yards but do not lose points for misses. On defense, the format is pretty standard for scoring with sacks and turnovers, but there is a larger bonus for points allowed if the team can get a shutout or hold an opponent under 7 points.

How We Determined Value for the 2021 Yahoo Fantasy Football Rankings

Players are ranked based on our “value” calculation. The value at each position is determined by using a different baseline for each position. The baseline is set by the average projected scoring of a group of players from the same position, who are near the cut line of being drafted onto a roster.

We also adjust the value at each position based on whether that position tends to have multiple starters or not. That means the value at positions like QB, TE, K, and DST are adjusted downward relative to RB and WR, which are positions that require multiple picks to fill starting spots. The reason for this is that you are more likely to get points from top players into your lineup if there are multiple starting spots. You are more likely to “platoon” or alternate starters at QB, than you are to sit your top RB, where you need several other better options to not have them in the lineup. 

Finally, value also includes consideration of how consistent the position is in fantasy football. Positions that are less consistent, like kicker and defense, have their value reduced.
