Personally, I like my chances of having a RB2 or WR3 going up against a return specialist. The odds are in my favor that the return specialist will not score. In the last 5 season there have been 30 or less return TDs 4 times. There are not very good odds in getting the players that scored those, and then to actually play those players during the week in which they scored. I would not not change any draft strategy nor would I draft a return specialist if I was in a league that switched to that format. That is why they are usually lumped together in FF(they are just not that common). I'm sure there may be some that like it, but I don't think it would change things all that dramatically.

Nice article though ;-D

I agree, I really wish more leagues would implement this if anything for the option to have it, especially IDP leagues...DB's are traditionally low scorers, but a very good tackling DB that returns punts and kicks could take your team over the top. I also like players who return punts or kickoffs getting those 6 points because for players like Reggie Bush, and probably Harvin, those points make a difference on how valuable a player is.
