So which of these guys would you recommend for this week? If Moss doesnt play i;m in a bind and may need to look at this option. We get 1 point per 10 return yards.

With 1 pt = 10 return yards, I'd seriously consider not playing anything but stud WR's and stud return men... I'd start a stud return man over Santana every week...

Eddie Drummond
JJ Moses
Michael Lewis

should all be good WR options if they're still available to you...

I should have specified but its Randy Moss that I have and Im not sure if he'll play for sure. I'm in a 6 team league and we start 4 wr's. Mine are Moss, Harrison, Chad Johnson, Moulds, and ROY Williams. If Moss does play I'm thinking of picking up Drummond or Lewis (kinda leaning toward Lewis) and sitting Johnson. Never really thought about it too much but these guys will average 10 points or more a week in return yards.

To be honest I actually think it's kind of lame. Someone in my league is using Drummond and another is using Sams off the Ravens.

Same as your scoring system, 10 yards per point on ret yards.

That crap should be left for the defense points. I have players like Moss and Walker busting their asses for TD's and reception yards at 20 a point while these returners who get NO catches and NO runs out score them by ridiculous margins.

I agree, I think it throws off the balance and integrity of the whole system.

One of the great things I like about fantasy football is the wide number of customizable settings, to make for varied play and strategy; but some settings get tweaked too far, imo.

Even 20 yards/1 point is too much, imo. I think that a setting of 25, up to a max of 50 yards/point (with or without fractional yardage) is a fair balance.

No offense, guys, but would you be using words like lame, integrity, and balance if you were the ones who properly capitalized on the scoring systems in place for your league?

There are probably tens of thousands of scoring variations in use in all of fantasy football. Who's to say which is best?

Fantasy sports is about understanding the fixed variables that you are confined to, then predicting and adapting within that system (with a fair amount of luck tossed in).

I'm in a yardage league with healthy return points and I really enjoy the challenge. It is a fresh diversion from my other leagues. I've learned a lot more about return games then I ever knew before. There are some frustrating aspects, such as Lamont Brightful, a top return yardage guy getting cut, but what position hasn't given us fits? I don't mind that BJ Sams has scored me almost twice as many points as Laveranues Coles.

Yeah but Ive got Randy Moss and maybe Williams out with injury and Chad Johnson getting 30 yards a week which in my league is 3 points. There are no decent free agents and guys like Lewis and Drummond are consistently scoring 10 points or more a week. Makes sense to consider using one at least this week
