Any of you guys in leagues with Kick/Punt Return Yards?

Yes, my players get 1 point per every 20 yards, and Dante Hall is still the #3 WR. It's probably because he also received 3 TD catches and 1 TD on a kickoff. If Dante Hall runs all the way in a kickoff, (assuming he started from the endzone) that's an automatic 11-12 points.

Our league uses 1 pt. for every 20 yards and a 5 point bonus for 100 return yds. Same bonus applies for receiving yards and rushing yards. TDs all 6 pts.

Last year Hall was #4 WR. This year #3 WR. I also have Mathis from Hou. Don't start them together much as I have Holt and Fitz at WR. I am 11-2 and always win my WR matchups!

We have been using ret. yds. for 4 years now. But, when it comes to the draft in my league most of the guys forget and go off preseason rankings which never factor in return yards.

The return guys are almost always worth 12-15 points if you play matchups.

Whichever week it was, I read the scoring system and saw they gave one point per 10 yard return. I about blew a gasket and immediately picked up Dante Hall. Hall scored a return TD and gave me 37 points that week!!! It was insane. I've started him ever since. In this league he'll consistently score better than a top receiver. The commish of our league said he's going to change it up for next year because it's too easy. I agree, but as long as it helps me win it's all good! And his back-to-back TD weeks is nice too! ;-D


Always check the league settings before the draft. Know what you're getting into.

Dante Hall is the #3 WR because your WR get 1 point for 20 recieving yards.

What the other guy was suggesting is that return yards are only worth half as much as recieving, so then Dante Hall would only be top 15.

In my league we get TDs for returns but not the yardage. I like that, though sometimes I think it would be better of the the D/ST got the credit instead of the individual player.

I've got D. Hall as my #4 WR & D. Williams (punt return yards) as one of my DB's.
