My league settings for large yardage in a game are as follows:

 

Passing Yards 5 points at 400 yards; 5 points at 500 yards

Rushing Yards 10 yards per point; 5 points at 150 yards; 5 points at 200 yards

Receiving Yards 10 yards per point; 5 points at 160 yards; 5 points at 215 yards

 

Kind of silly in theory but anyhow I am curious if there is an easy way to translate this into the regular scoring tab in Draft Buddy.  In the meantime I am estimating the likelihood of each of these in Custom Scoring and the Position tabs for FFToday projection but would prefer something cleaner.

 

Thanks for any help!

Sorry, but the custom scoring tab and inputting projections under Custom1, 2, 3 on the position tabs is the best way to handle this. The big hang up is you need projections, and putting them in the Custom columns is the best spot otherwise you will lose your projections when you update.

 

In terms of more elegant, you could use a formula. Say you think 15% of games where a QB throws for over 300 yards are also over 400 yards, then the formula would be in Custom 1 on the QB tab (cell EX5):

 

=AM5*0.15

 

and then copy that formula all the way down for all players, as opposed to inputting a different number for each player.

Thank you for confirmation.  I did exactly as suggested to make it more elegant.  Thank you for the great tool!
