Award points for return yards

Remember when the great Devin Hester was tearing up the NFL with return yards and touchdowns last decade?

Sure, those were some nice bonus points for the Bears’ special teams/defense, but Hester was virtually a non-factor as a fantasy football player in leagues that didn’t award points for return yards.

My question to that is: why? If Hester had that much an impact on an NFL game, the ability to dramatically change his team’s fortunes, why shouldn’t he have that kind of impact on a fantasy team?

Not only should return touchdowns count but return yards should help make more players valuable.
