In Leagues where Return Yardage counts at anything around 0.5 the same rate as Receiving or Rushing yardage Welker was a top 30 WR last year so the Frisman Effect is not applicable here.

Now - if Nate Washington were being added then you would have a case to argue.

I agree. This is the Frisman Effect. I just happened to check Yahoo to see it myself.

The argument of return yards being equal is valid, but is this REALLY the case in 17,000+ leagues?

Wes Walker is a great player to have on your team......NFL team! Not fantasy team.

But he should definately get some love in return yardage leagues if he hasn't already

Wes Welker is a stud in leagues that award return yardage. If Marty Booker had gotten injured enough to miss a few weeks, I would add Welker just based on his receiving ability..

LOL the Frisman effect. I LOVE IT!

I will admit that I had a look over my rosters to see if I had a team that could use a little Frizzle Schnizzle, but I'm going to take a pass.

I didn't see past the 1st quarter becuase I had to come to work but watching in the NFL.com Gamecenter it seemed Welker was the target a lot near the end when Culpepper was trying to make something happen - that can only be a good sign for Welker owners...

Hey, if you have Wes Welker in a league that rewards return yards, congrats to you. Otherwise, he's fairly useless.

One of my leagues counts return yards at 30yds per point. He netted 12.45 pts. I am thinking of dropping R Brown for him since Dainty Stallworth is in Phillie now.

Did Wes actually catch a ball in the second half (after Booker came back)?

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?
