The rushing categories are basically moot. Somtimes someone might get a reverse for a td or something, but you cannot count on that at all. The big thing here is the point per reception. Get recievers who will catch alot of balls, also you may think about WR on bad teams that will have to throw alot like Brandon LLoyd from the 49ers. Just some thoughts, I would definitely look at last years reception numbers tho and take those into account somewhat

Yea, but this also helps recieving RB's. They will dominate in this league.

General rule of thumb... Key word being general.

Receptions leagues give Tight Ends a huge kick in the ass. The change at WR is minimal. Some top guys get better, and some guys at the bottom who relied on lots of big plays and few catches drop out. Top RBs stay top RBs and some receiving RBs get a decent boost.

You think Shockey or Gonzalez is good in standard leagues, look at their seperation from the pack in a receptions league.

117 point difference between Gonzo and TE #12. That's like going from Randy Moss to Peter Warrick.

I thought the same thing...until I realized that Priest Holmes had over 70 receptions last year! 8-o

The points gap isn't as big as you would believe!
