Settings for Two QB Leagues

Lately we have gotten several questions about the league settings and format that we’re using as our default here at Two Quarterbacks, One Team. While there are many good options, we like the setup we use. Let’s talk about settings for Two QB leagues. After more than ten years of testing various scoring systems, here is what we’ve adopted:

Scoring

  • Passing:
    • 1 point per 25 yards
    • 4 points per passing TD
    • -2 points per interception
  • Rushing:
    • 1 point per 10 yards
    • 6 points per rushing TD
    • -2 points per fumble
  • Receiving:
    • 1 point per 10 yards
    • 6 poits per rushing TD
    • 0 points per reception

Roster

  • 2 QBs
  • 2 RBs
  • 3 WRs
  • 1 TE
  • 1 DEF
  • 1 K

These are the settings we use in creating our rankings and cheat sheet. So unless it is otherwise noted, you can assume any ranking page is based upon these settings.

We like these settings because they create parity between the QB and RB positions, whereas many leagues overvalue RBs. Our choice to create 3 WR roster spots creates value for the mid-range WRs, although the elite WRs don’t get taken as highly as in other leagues. While some commissioners prefer absolute parity between all positions, we prefer a format where QBs and RBs are worth more than WRs.
