Dalton Del Don writes about fantasy sports for RotoWire.

This cheatsheet is based on a standard 10/20, 6/4 scoring system with kickers at face value and defenses getting the usual 1 point per sack or turnover, and six for a TD. It assumes a one-time draft before the playoffs start, where you keep your players for as long as they last in the playoffs, i.e., it's slanted toward players likely to play the most games.
