Use Rotisserie (Roto) scoring in Yahoo Fantasy
Go up against your entire league for the best season-long stats. While you're ranked daily, the only time your standings matter is at the end of the season. Points are used for quick visual aid, but your stats are what count.
Your rank, out of the total number of managers, in a stat category earns you the inverse number of points. Example with a league containing 10 managers:
- 1st place in a stat category, earns 10 points
- 10th place in a stat category, earns 1 point
Unlike other scoring formats, where your points are accumulated over time, the total available points are static and don't change in a Rotisserie league. Your standing within that set of points is what changes from day to day based on your accumulated stats.
As your rank per stat category rises or falls, your total points adjust accordingly each day and any difference from your standings in previous day is tracked with positive and negative numbers in the "Pts Change" column.
The maximum number of points a manager can earn is the number of tracked stat categories multiplied by the number of managers in a league. In a 10 manager league tracking 10 stat categories, a manager who earns 1st place in every stat category would have 100 points.
Stat category ties
When 2 or more teams tie for a stat category, each manager involved gets an average of the total points due. Examples with a league containing 10 managers:
- 2 teams tie for 1st -- Each gets 9.5 points:
- 1st = 10 points and 2nd = 9 points
- (10 + 9) / 2 = 9.5
- 3 teams tie for 1st -- Each gets 9 points:
- 1st = 10 points, 2nd = 9 points, 3rd = 8 points
- (10 + 9 + 8) / 3 = 9
If more than 1 manager ties for 1st place, they'll get co-champion status. There's no playoffs or tiebreakers for the final ranking.
