What Is PPR In Fantasy Football?

PPR stands for “points per reception,” and it is a scoring system used in some fantasy football leagues. In a PPR league, each catch counts as one point, regardless of how many yards the receiver gains after making the catch. This format rewards player who catch many passes, especially those used heavily in the passing game.

For example, a player like Los Angeles Rama wide receiver Cooper Kupp would be valuable in a PPR league because he caught over 100 passes last season. By contrast, players who do most of their damage on the ground are usually not as valuable in PPR formats. This is one reason why running backs like Alvin Kamara and Dalvin Cook are typically drafted higher in standard leagues than they are in PPR leagues.

What Is A Standard Point System?

A standard point system fantasy football is a game where individuals manage imaginary teams of real-life NFL players. When these players score touchdowns, gain yards, etc., the individual’s team is awarded points based on these statistics.

To win, an individual must have the most points at the end of the NFL season. There are several different ways to score points in a standard point system fantasy football league. For example, some leagues award more points for touchdown passes than rushing touchdowns.

Some leagues also award bonus points to players who rack up a lot of yardages or have many catches. As with any game, a certain amount of strategy is involved in scoring the most points possible. However, the fundamental goal remains the same: to have the most points at the end of the season and be crowned champion.

What Is The Best Position To Draft?

In PPR fantasy football, running backs are the most crucial position to draft. They score the most points and get the most touches. They also have the most consistent production. In standard scoring, wide receivers are the most important position. But in PPR, running backs are king.

Here’s why: Running backs score more points than any other position. They get the most touches and often find themselves in the red zone, and typically have more consistent production than any other position.

In standard scoring, a quarterback can have a great game one week and then be mediocre the next. But a running back can be counted to produce week in and week out. That’s why they’re the most crucial position in PPR fantasy football.

My Advice For Playing PPR Fantasy Football

To dominate your PPR fantasy football league, you need to start by understanding the scoring system. In PPR leagues, each reception is worth a certain number of points, and the point values increase for longer receptions.

As a result, many people make wide receivers and tight ends more valuable in PPR leagues than in standard-scoring leagues. But as we’ve seen, that is not the case in most situations with the running backs’ inclusion in the passing game.

Running backs catching many passes out of the backfield are the most valuable in PPR leagues. The key is finding one with high receptions rather than relying on quarterbacks or wide receivers to rack up the catches.
