It's a little too early to tell, and he's a rookie....

but the Cowboys drafted Skyler Green in the 4th round solely for the purpose of returning kicks. He's really good at it, and I expect at least 1-2 TD and tons of yards from him on returns this season.

He won't give you much points, if any, at WR, but if you need to draft a returner, he might be an option.

Although, I have never played in a league that requires a kick returner on the roster, so I really have no idea what I am talking about....

To clear things up, It doesn't require a quick returner, it just gives points for return yards and td's to all players, idp's, and defensive teams. With that said, with the cheifs be a good team to draft for D?

Welker was a decent bye-week filler for WR3 in my 12 team league that awarded 1pt/20 return yds last year, and he does (did?) play in the occasional 3WR set as well so bonus points there...

im assuming your league rewards about 1 pt for every 50 return yds or so. if thats the case then you shouldnt worry about kick returners at all...if you can get a regular player who ALSO returns kicks occasionally, then you might snag a few extra pts per week, but not anything to worry about.

Bingo. Jerome Mathis is an absolute monster at KR, I had him last year and he did great. Mostly everyone else I know about has been mentioned, but Quincy Morgan was the KR for the steelers last year and he was pretty decent, dunno if he's doing it again this year.

If it is 1 for 50 then you don't really worry about getting a full time KR. However, if your league is 1 for 20, then the top KR can match the top WR, and be more consistent from week to week.

In my league it is 1 point for every 15 return punt or kick yards and we start 3 wr's and w/rb so it should be interesting. What round is Hall worth in this league in a 12-teamer?
