Fantasy Football Terms / Glossary:

ADP: Average draft position. Along with data from other Fantasy Football drafts, the individual picks are compiled together to generate an average draft position for each player.

screw up: A popular player who is highly favored by most and who will underperform his ADP (average draft position) in 2022.

To burst: A player who will rise with the best numbers of his career in 2022, or almost, and will have a big impact.

farewell week: In the NFL, each team must have a week towards the middle of the season when they do not play a game. This week is called the week off.

RPP: Points per reception. In this popular fantasy format, catches count as one point (equivalent to 10 yards in standard scoring formats). For example: in this format, if a receiver catches 6 passes for minimal yardage, they will still have a good performance.

.5 RPP: Similar to PPR, but catches will count as a half point, as opposed to a full point.

Standard notation: Fantasy Football format where receptions do not add any points. Therefore, heavy RBs become more relevant and better positioned in the rankings.

Sleeper: An NFL player who is underdog and who will surpass his average draft position (ADP) in 2022.

Fantasy Football Categories and Positions

QC: quarterbacks. The count of your offence. Quarterbacks tend to be picked in later rounds because the pool of quality players in that position is quite high.

RB: Running backs: The player who will throw the ball the most in your team. They are very important in standard notation formats.

WR: Wide Receivers: The deepest category in the game. Most teams will field three wide receivers at a time. They will be your smugglers.

AND: Tight ends. A blocker/pass catcher hybrid. Usually very dependent on hit for relevance. The shallowest position pool in the game. Be sure to write a star in this category for consistency.

J/ST: Defense and Special Teams. The only non-individual category. Whichever team you choose, you will earn points based on your defensive performance (points allowed, interceptions, fumble recoveries and sacks)

Fantasy Football FAQs

What are the most common types of fantasy football leagues?

Head-to-head leagues: This format is the most common and what we recommend the most at Marca. You’ll face off against an opponent, and the winner is the team with the most points at the end of that week’s matches. The teams with the best overall record will qualify for the playoffs at the end of the season.

Total league points: It’s your team against the others. Teams accumulate points and compete in the standings. The total points of each team determine the ranking.

All Play League: Rare format, but it exists. Each team plays each on a weekly basis. In a 12-team league, the team with the highest score would be 12-0, while the second would be 11-1, and so on…

What is a Superflex in Fantasy Football?

Quarterbacks are the deepest position in fantasy football, as there are so many to choose from and most leagues only offer the chance to have one as a starter. This is why some prefer to play in two QB or superflex leagues. In superflex formats, owners will start two QBs each week.

Once my Draft is finished, what should I do?

The draft only happens once, and that’s before the start of the season. It will now be up to you to define your queues each week. Being a good fantasy football coach requires making tough decisions about who to start and who to leave on the bench.
