When setting up a fantasy football league, there are a couple of formats to choose from. Standard fantasy leagues were the norm for a long time. These leagues rely mostly on points from touchdowns, the scoring system the majority of fantasy owners prefer.
In recent years, however, leagues that count points per reception (PPR) have become more and more popular.
For the most part, successful players will excel no matter the format. Adrian Peterson will be the first pick in most standard and PPR leagues just because he's that good.
But there are a few players who benefit more from having their receptions count. These are guys who may not score a lot of touchdowns, but their penchant for catching passes—and lots of them—makes up for it.
*Note: The players mentioned in this article aren't necessarily going to be the top scorers. These are guys who are going to finish higher in PPR leagues than they would in standard leagues.
