Some leagues award bonus points for runners who post 100-yard rushing games. While the value of some top players is unaffected by such a scoring system, it’s interesting what the numbers reveal about teams who have solid rushing offenses – but divide up the workload among two or three players. The Patriots, for example, had the league’s 12th-ranked rushing offense last year, but were tied with the lowly Raiders (29th) for the fewest 100-yard rushing games.
The number of 100-yard rushing games that each team managed in 2006 is presented below.
100-yard rushing games, by team
11 Kansas City, San Diego
9 San Francisco
8 Atlanta, N.Y. Giants
7 Green Bay, Jacksonville, Pittsburgh, Washington
6 Denver, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Tennessee
5 Chicago, Cincinnati, Miami, Minnesota, New Orleans
4 Carolina, Dallas, Seattle
3 Arizona, Buffalo, N.Y. Jets
2 Baltimore, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Tampa Bay
1 New England, Oakland

I've been involved in Fantasy Football for 24 years(way before it became fashionable)There were no Magazines to tell you who to pick and when.We award RB&R. 2 bonus points for 100 yards,4 for 150 etc.For the life of me I just don't understand how you can award a RB or R points every 10 yards gained,example:21 carries 51 yards,thats less than 2 1/2 yards a carry,subpar game at best,yet he is rewarded with 5 points,I just don't get it.
