RETURN YARDS for PPR

Postby yualreadyknow » Mon Jul 30, 2012 9:34 pm

Has anybody seen any leagues ( I haven't in over 4 years) where return yards count for points in PPR? I know instances where say, if Devin Hester, runs for a 99 yd return TD, it will count for 6 points but I can't recall seeing points tallied for returns solely.

Can anyone explain why you think most leagues avoid this opportunity to garner points? I see an opportunity there. Am I in the minority? Thanks.

I have 2 leagues that count return yards the same as rushing yards. Makes Sproles, Cobb, Hester, etc much more valuable.

That is an excellent league. ESPN, YAHOO, or NFL.COM?

all of the major providers allow this, however id assuem none fo rtheir public formats. its just one of the options for the commish when setting up the league.

keep in mind, you odnt score return yards the same as rushing/receving. it needs to be 1pt per every 30-35 yards. or else the kickoff return guys becoem really awesome just bc they get 20-30 return yards a kickoff

I am familiar with that last one through the Cafe but I've never seen it anywhere. No biggie. I don't play most return guys anyway. Lol

the only league i play return yards now is a fairly big league. 14 teams w a flex. it helps fill the flex soemtimes w a guy that normally would be usefull...but w that extra 4-5 points he is playable in the flex during byes and injuries

That must be the key then. How big the league is. Because I have not seen it in the 10-12 team leagues, at least, so far.

I figure since there are so many teams, the talent gets thinned out and there has to be some kind of provision made for more scoring opportunities. At least, that makes sense to me. Thank you for the info.

I'm in an IDP, Dynasty, and a Keeper but no such return yds opportunity there. Maybe some day.

I think our league (12 team) does a point for 50 return yards. It gives WR/RBs that do some return work a little more value, but it isn't enough that pure return specialists are startable.
