Fantasy Team Defense Scoring (1 Viewer)

Here is how one of my fantasy leagues gives out points for how many points a defense allows:0 - 0 PAs = 3 points 1 - 9 PA = 2 points 10 - 19 PA = 1 point 30+ PAs = -1 point I'm curious as to what other people use. I just feel like a shutout should be worth more than 3 points. That's the same as a Rian Lindell 20 yard field goal and it just seems wrong.Other defensive scoring is 1pt for a sack, 2 pts for a turnover or safety and 6 points for a TD by the def/special teams.

 
In our league a shutout is worth 8 pts, 6 points or less - 6 pts, 7 to 13 - 4 pts, 14 to 20 - 2 pts. Similar system for yardage allowed, in 50 yd increments.

 
Both of my leagues give ten points for a shut out, Other scoring is similar to yours, though one (ESPN) only gives three points for a def. touchdown.

We used the system below for defense this season, but we found it scored defenses too high. Will probably keep the turnover/sack/etc. points the same, but cut all the "points allowed" scores in half for next year.Points Allowed0-0: 10 points 1-3: 9 points4-7: 8 points8-10: 7 points11-14: 6 points15-17: 5 points18-21: 4 points22-24: 3 points25-27: 2 points28-30: 1 point30+: 0 pointsSack 1 pointFR 2 pointsINT 2 pointsSafety 3 pointsTD Scored 6 pointsEdited for clarity.

Shutout = 10 Points.2-6: 7.7-13: 5.14-17: 3.18-20: 1.21+: 0.These are really arbitrary.The standard ones are:2 points for a turnover (INT / Fumble recovery)1 point for a sack (glory stat).6 for any TD by the defense / special teams.1-2 points for a blocked kick.2 points for a safety is typical. Some "juice" this to more, but that's kinda weak and random.I also like 1 point for a forced punt and 2 points for a turnover on downs, with nothing for sacks. That seems more realistic and in line with what real defenses are trying to do. Yardage matters little.

 
0 - 6 PA = 8 points 7 - 13 PA = 6 points 14 - 20 PA = 4 points 21 - 27 PA = 2 points 28+ PAs = 0 points

 
Here's how my league scores DEF :Blocked Field Goals 1 pointBlocked Punts 1 pointBlocked Extra Points 1 pointDefensive/ST Fumble Recovered 1 pointTotal Defensive and Special Teams TD 6 pointsInterceptions 1 pointPA - Points Against, Total Points Scored 0 - 0 PAs = 10 points2 - 10 PA = 5 points11 - 15 PA = 3 points16+ PAs = 0 pointsSack 1 pointSafety 2 pointsThe highest scoring DEF per these rules = Chicago Bears : 159 pts (17 weeks)For comparison purposes, the highest scoring Player = Shaun Alexander : 297 ptsFor what it's worth... Chicago did manage to break into my league's Top 50 overall (#45)... Although DEF/ST is important, it won't make or break your team and they're more or less a support position in my league. The same applies to kickers... Positional Players rule the day.
