Surprise: Top 10 Recievers In My League

Postby NYNY » Tue Oct 16, 2007 7:13 pm

Keep in mind this is a "one point per every 10 yards returned league" :

1) R. Moss
2) Housh
3) Plax
4) Braylon
5) S. Smith
6) Hester
7) C. Johnson
8) Welker
9) P. Crayton
10) J. Cribbs

I already have Braylon, R. Williams and Marv. Harrison. Somehow Cribbs is still available in my league! Would I be silly not to pick up Cribbs? He is averaging over 30 yards/return.

I will say 10 yards per return is a tad askew, I play 25. And Hester and Cribbs have been almost elite options at WR for a while now. Especially with how Cleveland's defense is atrocious. I scoped the rules (no big brag here, everyone should do it) and waited forever for receivers in one league, figuring on hester and ginn (noticed cribbs and switched out). People are all annoyed, but whatever, you should read the rules. And honestly, I think there should be a place for return yards in this game, and I don't thinkt hat place is on DST.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

The thing is that returners either hit it big, or get nothing for you... there seems to be no in between. And its not as easy to figure out what a good matchup is. But generally, if the team is playing against an excellent offense, this means the team is going to be receiving kickoffs more often, and the returner will have a better day. So I'd pick up Cribbs, and if you think Cleveland is going to have a high scoring game, then put him in there. At 1 pt per 10 yards, you can't really lose.

Yeah, the Browns defense is so bad that Cribbs makes the absolute most sense to grab. The problem is, who should I drop? Moss or Colston?

Sorry, but in the case of someone like Cribbs, its not really hit or miss. He averages 130 yards on returns per game. So in my leagues, that's 5.36 points per, which is almost a touchdown. Sure you can do better, but it's almost a sure bet. In a 10 yard per return league, I think this is absolute no brainer, and I can;t believe someone didn't notice this before. (Well, I know why, Yahoo ranks don't adjust for it) the key is getting a guy who will snag punts too. I mean either a D stops the other team,and you get punt return yards, or you don't and get a kickoff... Hester granted is hit or miss, but Cribbs' lowest game was int he 90s.
