Ok, I am in a league where I just beat the world's biggest complainer by three points. I'm not a fan of this guy, but he always organizes the fantasy leagues at my former work. Bear in mind that it was a publication based on wine tasting, and he was a senior editor, so is a bit of a snob.
Anyway, this is the 6th year I have played, and noticed in this year (the commish role rotates, the winner has to commish the next year) and this year, return yards were valued at 25 yards per point, plus 2 for over 100. so I adjusted accordingly and devalued wrs, because for some reason receiving yards were valued at the same rate. Thus, I figured people would not notice, and I counted on one decent WR, and then snagging hester.
Anyway, Cleveland's trends became obvious, so I picked up Cribbs, and beat him narrowly. (50 yards passing, one point'' 20 yards rushing, 25 return, catching). Then he started complaining. Screw that, read the rules.
His complaint is Defense counts retrun yards (which is a mistake), but at the same time, none of the guys one would want: hester, cribbs, ginn jr., hall, play for teams where one would want the defenses anyway. Second of all, is it that out of hand to include returning at this point? It's a major part of real games, and personally, I feel it should be reflected.
Granted, I'd rather a kick returner position be accounted for in the lineups, much like kicker and defense. That being said, I adjusted my whole draft strategy, figuring I could get guys who will score 5-7 points, and went for qb, rb and defense. I knew my returner guys wouldn't absoloutely explode, but provide me with a decent base. Complainer guy says that its lame, as I play Cribbs at WR, and he only has one catch.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
