For offensive scoring it would be nice to add the following:
Running Back passing points 
Wide Receiver & Tight End rushing & passing points
Quarterback rushing & receiving points
Kicker passing points
Wide Receiver rushing points
Tight End rushing points
Bonus points for a running back, receiver, quarterback or kicker for going over a certain amount of yards that is set by the league rules. For instance; Quarterback over 300 yds. passing-5 bonus points; Running Back over 100 yds. rushing-5 bonus points; Wide Receiver or Tight End over 100 yds. passing yds.-5 bonus points. Kicker field goals over 50 yds.-5 points.

Predicting trick plays like RB's, WR's, TE's, and Kickers throwing passes with any type of accuracy is impossible. It's just so rare that they do so.
Are the standard rushing point bonuses different for each position? Do RB's get 1 pt for every 10 yards but WR's get 1 point for every 5 and QB's 1 for every 7 yards? Or do they all get the same?
I play in leagues where there are differencies in these things from position to position, and since I use Tiering instead of a Value Based Board I just modify my scoring system and re-run the analyzer to get and print the Tier Sheets for each position.
As for the bonuses for every 300 passing yards, or 100 rushing yards, or 100 receiving yards, those are included in the scoring system set up page. They are located in the drop down bar under the defensive category scoring for sacks, interceptions, etc. The drop down bar will allow you to set up for both offensive and defensive special bonuses like these. And I wouldn't be concerned that maybe RB's and the other positions don't get the 5 bonus points for a 300 yard passing game since no one other than a QB is ever going to be predicted for it. Same thing with QB's and WR's rushing the ball or RB's receiving. These things happening are extremely rare.
As for the kicker bonuses for length of FG, my research has shown that there is simply no way to accurately predict the exact length of how many FG's a kicker will kick in a season. Dabvoid Akers, for example, was 1-6 from 40-49 yards in 2007. In 2008 he was 8-10 in that yardage range. In 2009 he was 11-13. Adam Vinatieri was 9-10 in that range in 2006, then 0-2 in 2007, and 4-7 in 2008. Predicting the range of the total FG's for a kicker accurately is not possible and I laugh when I see magazines and other sites claiming their system does it since I know for a fact they are simply guessing to make people feel better.
I play in leagues where we get 2.1 for a 21 yard FG and 5.6 for a 56 yard FG (standard decimal point scoring) and I just use "3" on my scoring system for FG's. Simply can't say that a kicker will have a 45, 37, and 23 yards FG's in a game. But I can say with a high degree of accuracy that a kicker will have 3 FG's in a game.
On any given Sunday any fantasy team can beat another, only to still lose Monday night.
