Which Sites Use PPR Scoring as a Standard?
The sites that currently utilize PPR scoring as their standard are ESPN, NFL, and Sleeper. However, all three sites offer commissioners the opportunity to change the scoring, so be sure to check which setting your league is using.
Additionally, other fantasy football providers have the opportunity for their scoring to be changed to PPR, even if it’s not the site standard.
How Does PPR Scoring Differ From Other Scoring Settings?
PPR stands for points per reception, so the difference is that you receive points for each reception, as well as for the yardage and any touchdowns potentially gained or scored. For example, a 10-yard reception in a PPR league would gain two points instead of one in a non-PPR league. Over the course of a season, that can significantly impact a player’s fantasy value.
In non-PPR formats, deep threats can carry additional value to a possession receiver because a 50-yard reception carries five points compared to the one point you would get for a 10-yard reception.
If we consider two different players, the deep threat catches 20 passes for 500 yards, while the possession receiver catches 50 passes for 500 yards. In a non-PPR league, they each score 50 points. In a PPR league, the possession receiver scores 100 fantasy points to the 70 for the deep threat, completely flipping their value.
