Return Yards as a Stat???

Postby Eagle Baseball » Tue Aug 20, 2013 1:02 pm

our league rewards return yards as a stat. 15 yards = 1 pt. Return TD = 6 points Last year we did not have return yards as a counting stat.

Our league also has individual defensive players.

With returns as a stat how much of a bump would you give Darren Sproles? We start 2 RB along with a Flex (WR, RB or TE) I'm thinking he would be a valuable #3 RB and merit a pick over a #2 WR in round 4.

With individual defensive players + return yards where would you pick someone like Patrick Patterson? Last year as I said we did not have return yards and everyone drafted their individual defensive player after their kicker.

I assume 10 teams?

Even in standard scoring, Sproles is going early 4th round. Add in a flex spot, 1/15 return yards, and if you have PPR or not, Sproles is going to come off the board way before round 4.

I agree with the above post.

Let me ask you this. Our league's scoring includes return yards & IDPs but we have a strange difference in that any defensive player who happens to return punts/kicks doesn't score return points.

Only our offensive players score return points (So Sproles is valuable, and guys like Jacoby Jones who otherwise is not a top 4-tier WR)

So check the scoring. I hate the way our league scores returns. I imagine if your league rewards points to ANY return man, offense or defense, then your IDP return-men would be very valuable draft picks.
