Calculating forces on a fabric web

I have been presented a unique challenge by a client: run a stress analysis on a trampoline foot-to-rail interface. Running the analysis is simple once I know the resultant forces. The kicker is that is it based on a 200lb man jmping off center on the mat. Do I simply calculate the total force and skew it proportionally to the distance from a side? TIA for the advice.
