Guide to Tight End Premium Drafts (2022 Fantasy Football) PREMIUM
The game of fantasy football has evolved over the years. We’ve gone from non PPR scoring and single quarterback leagues being the “default” settings to a wide range of scoring and lineup options. Fantasy leagues have replaced team defenses/special teams for individual defensive players (IDP), kickers in an extra flex spot, and even a second matchup every week against the median score.
One of the more popular scoring changes has been the introduction of TE premium scoring leagues. This scoring change is more prevalent in dynasty than home redraft leagues. However, it has grown in popularity, mainly thanks to the Scott Fish Bowl.
So how much does the scoring bump for tight ends impact your fantasy draft plans? More than you would expect.
What are TE Premium Leagues?
TE premium leagues give a scoring bonus to players listed at tight end. However, there isn’t a consensus scoring bump for these leagues. In the Scott Fish Bowl, tight ends receive an extra 0.5 fantasy point per reception and an additional 0.5 fantasy point per first down. While the Scott Fish Bowl is one of the best experiences in fantasy football, its scoring system is more complex than the standard redraft league.
