When setting your roster for a weekend of games there are seven roster spots that consist of one superstar, two handlers, two receivers and two defenders. Each position has a different scoring output that can be the difference between winning your weekly matchup and falling to the bottom of your league standings.

First off, there is a base amount of fantasy points that each player will receive regardless of what position you decide to play them in:

Goals: 2 points
Assists: 2 points
Blocks: 5 points
Completions: .05 points
Receptions: .05 points
Callahans: 15 points
Turnovers: -1 points

Start a player as your Superstar and it gives a x2 multiplier to all of the fantasy point outputs, meaning the player will score points like this:

Goals: 4 points
Assists: 4 points
Blocks: 10 points
Completions: .1 points
Receptions: .1 points
Callahans: 15 points*
Turnovers: -2 points

*Callahans are the exception to this rule. Callahans are always worth 15 points.

Start a player as a Handler and it rewards the player for assists and completed throws, giving a scoring output like this:

Goals: 2 points
Assists: 4 points
Blocks: 5 points
Completions: .1 points
Receptions: .05 points
Callahans: 15 points
Turnovers: -1 points 

Start a player as a Receiver and it rewards the player for goals and receptions, giving a scoring output like this: 

Goals: 4 points
Assists: 2 points
Blocks: 5 points
Completions: .05 points
Receptions: .1 points
Callahans: 15 points
Turnovers: -1 points

Start a player as a Defender and it rewards them for blocks, giving a scoring output like this,

Goals: 2 points
Assists: 2 points
Blocks: 10 points
Completions: .05 points
Receptions: .05 points
Callahans: 15 points
Turnovers: -1 points
