Fantasy Football Half PPR Rankings
What does PPR stand for?
- Points per reception. Basically, how many points are awarded to the receiver simply for catching a pass. When we say 0.5 PPR that means each reception is worth half a point, and then the yardage will be added as well.
- PPR is used by many of the most popular fantasy sports websites including ESPN, Yahoo and CBSSports.
Benefits of choosing a half PPR league
- Creates parity between the RB and WR position. Workhorse running backs traditionally had a statistical advantage in fantasy football, as they touched the ball more often and had more opportunities to score. Adding 0.5 PPR scoring helps balance that out (although the league is going more towards RBBC these days)
- Creates higher scoring leagues. Lets face it, fantasy football is more fun when your teams are putting up points! 0.5 PPR is the perfect balance between standard scoring and full PPR formats
- Leading DFS websites like FD use PPR, so if you use it in your season long league as well you’ll better understand the DFS landscape.
