How do Victory Points calculate in Standings?
If your league uses Victory Points as a way to determine standings, then you play at least one regular head-to-head matchup each week, as most standard leagues do. If you win your matchup, then you are awarded 2 points for that victory.
In addition, your league is divided into thirds each week during the regular season of your fantasy league. Each week, the top 1/3rd of teams get an extra 2 points, the middle 1/3rd get 1 extra point, and the bottom 1/3rd receive no extra points.
This is a way to award a team who produced a good week in regards to points scored, but was still given a Loss because maybe that team just happened to play a team who had the best week in terms of scoring.
You have the potential to gain up to 4 total points in a fantasy week or you could wind up with 0 points in a poor fantasy week if you score a very low number of points compared to the rest of your league.
