We project the top 300 scorers for the 2012 fantasy football season

By Jake Westrich - WhatIfSports.com
August 8th, 2012

Editor's Note: We will be updating our 2012 preseason fantasy football projections later this month as training camps play out, depth charts take shape and injuries are known heading into the 2012 regular season.

Using the WhatIfSports.com NFL simulation engine, the individual fantasy players and defensive teams are ranked based entirely on projected fantasy points using the FOXSports.com Fantasy Football default scoring where:

QBs, RBs, WRs and TEs: TDs are 6 points

QBs: 25 passing yards is 1 point

QBs: Interceptions are -2 points

RBs: 10 rushing yards is 1 point

QBs, RBs, WRs and TEs: Fumbles lost are -2 points

WRs, TE and RBs: Ten yards receiving is 1 point

QBs, RBs, WRs and TEs: Two-point conversion are 2 points

K: Extra points are 1 point and all field goals are at least 3 points with an extra bonus point for field goals made over 40 yards and another bonus point for field goals made over 50 yards.

DEF: A sack is 1 point, an interception is 2 points and each DEF touchdown is 6 points
