View Full Version : Return yards count. Who should I add?

I play in another league (than the previous question) where return yards actually count towards scoring.

You get a point per 10 reception yards, a point per 10 rushing yards, and a point per 20 return yards.

As a result, I was considering adding the following people. How would you rank them:

Jerious Norwood, RB, ATL. Returns kicks and is RB#2
Ted Ginn, WR, MIA. Returns punts and is WR #1
Desean Jackson, WR, PHI. Returns punts and is WR #3/4
Pierre Thomas, RB, NO. Returns kicks and is is RB#2/3

I'd flip-flop Jackson and Ginn, and agree with 3 & 4. Jackson started on Sunday, and while it was because of injury, he made a good case for himself with over 100 yards receiving. Combine that with the fact Kevin Curtis is out for at least a few more weeks, and Reggie Brown is an uncertainty for week two, and I could see Jackson at worst proving he's deserving of lots of PT, and at best, getting himself a starting job.

Finally, I really have low expectations for the Miami offense this year, so that probably plays a role in pushing Ginn to #2 on my list.

I seriously can't believe Jackson is available in your league. He's worth starting if you didn't get return yards.

OK so here are the people I can drop for Jackson. Of the following, who do you think is worth a drop:

All these guys are backups

Team 1
DeAngelo Williams
Patrick Crayton
Todd Heap
Deuce McCallister
Ted Ginn

Team 2
Ronnie Brown
Reggie Brown
Steve Slaton
Matt Schaub
John Kitna
Jerious Norwood

Gosh, I don't know who I would drop if I were you. Team 2 you've already got Slaton and Norwood who both have some return duties but you've also got 3 total QB's?

I'm not going to be much help with who to cut. Team 1 I'd lean towards Heap or Deuce but I like their upsides. I always like TE's with young qb's and deuce has some potential to do well as the season goes on.

Another guy to keep an eye on down the road is Darren Sproles of the Chargers. He's got KR/PR duty and is the backup to LT. If the chargers are blowing a team out of the water, LT may sit. Do we know how LT's leg injury is? Fully healed? If LT has to miss some more games, Sproles' value skyrockets.

What about Cribbs with the Browns?

I'd take Desean Jackson over any of the bolded ones. Reggie Brown is the closest one, but I think McNabb has found a WR that he's comfortable with in Jackson. The return yards are just a bonus. Jackson will hit the rookie wall at some point, but for quality depth, I like him. Kolb likes him as well, in the event that McNabb goes down again.
