if we made a pick 6 - 6 would it change things much inthe rankings?
This is a ballache to figure out, because most of the sources I've seen don't track the stat officially (I'm actually stunned that Yahoo is offering it, probably a first in FF).
Here's what I can figure out from a small sampling of who threw an interception that resulted in a touchdown (please hold all "Fail Mary" cracks, this is seriouz fantasy football buzinezz) and their adjusted scores under -3 (aylbert) and -6 (redruM) rules.
Stafford: 4, 292.58, 280.58
Brees: 3, 409.58, 400.58
Freeman: 3, 279.50, 270.50
Romo: 2, 318.92, 312.92
Palmer: 2, 251.32, 245.32
E. Manning: 2, 266.92, 260.92
Newton: 2, 343.46, 337.46
Vick: 1, 162.68, 159.68*
Rodgers: 0, same, same
For reference, the top 3 at RB/WR:
Adrian Peterson - 321.40
Arian Foster - 266.10
Doug Martin - 264.60
Brandon Marshall: 220.60
Dez Bryant: 209.70
TE's start in the 150's, and aside from Chicago Defenses start in the low 200's. Kickers are irrelevant.
Maybe with the change in yardage, this will help bring the high-volume QB's down towards the mean (assuming that we want the mean to be in the 250's with the rest of the "good" players' means). By itself it doesn't completely destroy the QB's dominance.
EDIT: Because I like extrapolating useless scenarios, Vick's numbers over 16 games project out to 227.62 (no change), 218.62 (-3), 209.62 (-6)
