How many total fantasy points are scored each NFL season?

During the off-season, fantasy football fans are busy working on their lists, reading training season reports, and doing mock drafts. And while they will do their best to draft the optimal team from their draft spot, how big of a fantasy points pool are they going after? And how has that changed over the years?

We decided to take a look at how many total fantasy points are generated on a per season basis over the last 15 seasons:

Season Standard PPR
2013 74,798 85,900
2012 73,208 84,041
2011 72,732 83,196
2010 72,689 83,180
2009 71,222 81,261
2008 71,030 81,111
2007 71,540 81,965
2006 71,277 81,073
2005 70,720 80,510
2004 72,425 82,197
2003 70,624 80,319
2002 72,268 82,582
2001 68,474 78,016
2000 68,360 77,857
1999 68,998 78,565


As you can see from the above, the total pool of fantasy points has increased over the years due in part to a more pass heavy game, which produces more overall offense and a quicker pace of play that both lead to more points.
