Consider assigning 0.1 points per yard on field goals

Last updated:

Most fantasy football leagues award 3 points for field goals 0-39 yards, 4 points for field goals 40-49 yards, and 5 points for field goals 50-plus yards.

Why should a chip-shot field goal of about 20 yards be worth the same as a 39-yarder? Likewise, why should a 50-yard field goal be worth the same as one of those rare 60-plus-yarders?

Giving 0.1 points for every yard in a field goal made will balance the scoring a little bit better.
