Kick Returning DB's

Postby boojumsnark25 » Sun Jul 02, 2006 2:48 pm

I'm in a yahoo league every year where we have to start 2 DB's. Players get a point for every 10 KR yards, so DB's that return kicks are at a premium.

I was wondering if anyone has any inside info as to whether or not Allen Rossum will still return kicks in Atlanta, Terrence Mcgee in Buffalo, if Chris Johnson will be the new kick returner in KC, and if R.W. McQuarters will be the new kick returner in NY.

I know that's a lot of questions, so any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

I doubt Herm Edwards will pull Dante Hall completely from Special Teams - he's just too explosive with kick returns as it is right now. That's not saying that he could be an explosive WR, but speed isn't everything with WRs.

Can you use cornerbacks as well? Or just DBs? Pacman Jones and Justin Miller both served returning kickoffs/punts last year.

Haha wow...totally forgot about Dante! Agreed, Johnson won't start over hall.

Pacman and Miller are both taken already, as is Roderick Hood.

Anyone know anything about Mcquarters? Is he a better returner than Morton?

The guy your thinking of is Chris Carr. He's pretty explosive when it comes to KRs, but he's somewhat of a dud in punt returns. Trust me, I've seen every Raider game last year. He doesn't do much on the defensive side of the ball though, so he shouldn't be your first choice, but he's a sleeper.

Yeah, the guy is a beast. But he's already taken. The guys I listed are the only ones that I know of that are left.

Terrence McGee is the man to get. Hes returned kicks for the last two years and puts up decent stats to run with it. He would be the # 1 DB if you get a point for 10 yards

Chris Carr was the best DB to come from Boise State. I'm still pissed everyone said Andy Avalos our STUD LB was too small.

Back on topic now, I'd take McGee here. Personally I think he should have been taken earlier. He pretty much won my championship game for me last year.

How in the world have all these other guys been taken but NOT Terrance McGee. He's probably the #1 kick returning DB out there. Take him now!

I agree take Mcgee now. He has been the second highest scoring player in my league the last two years.
