Best defenses if league gives pts for return yds?

Postby monkey69 » Mon Nov 15, 2004 3:11 am

Hey all,

How would you rank defenses given our league grants D/ST 1pt per 10 yd returns.
A lot of the higher scoring defenses then get a lot of points if they are scored upon a lot and hence get the chance to return the ball a lot. For instance, Houston defense did a horrible job but was rewarded in our league since they got 180 return yds!

It almost makes you want to start a defense facing an offensive powerhouse rather than the other way around and depend on turnovers, etc.

Thoughts?

My league does this.

Top 7 teams pt wise...

Baltimore
Chicago
Pitts
San Diego
Detroit
Atlanta
Arizona

I have ATL, and started to put them ahead of New England a few weeks ago.

Houston just happened to have a good week, last week they only took 7 pts.

The ret yards add a lot of pts, but it's still the defense TD's, picks, and sacks that make those teams better than the rest.

The Saints, Miami, Oakland, and Dallas all have over 1000 in ret yards but are still 20 or so pts behind the above 7.

I don't know how the numbers work out, exactly, but I'm sure Baltimore with Sams would still be top dog... I also think Atlanta, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Chicago would be good with their good D's and good return men...

Hey all,

My dilemma is i have ARI defense - a middle of the road play this week against CAR

I am going to pickup off the WW:

Seattle - which the formula ranks highly as they play MIA - but this does not account for return yds I believe

CHicago - whom I foolishly dropped 2 weeks ago vs. IND
They will get scored on a lot but again as long as they keep the score under 31 the defense is not penalized - also, they would rack up lot of points for return yds at 1 pt per 10 yds returned

Thoughts?
