About the fantasy format: The Pioneer Press All-Area Football Team includes many of the best athletes from Chicago’s north and west suburbs. The goal was not to select the best hypothetical fantasy football team, but rather to select the very best players and view their stats in a new way: As fantasy football players.

Pioneer Press used the following point system, which is standard in many fantasy football leagues:

Offense: TD pass 4; Every 25 pass yards 1; interception -2; Rush TD 6; Every 10 rush yards 1; TD catch 6; every 10 receiving yards 1.

Defense: Solo tackle 1.5; assisted tackle 0.75; tackle for loss 2; sack 4; interception 5; forced fumble 4; fumble recovery 4; defensive TD 6; safety 2; pass defensed 1.5; blocked kick 2.

Special teams: PAT 1; Made field goal 3.
