Award points for return yards

Last updated:

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.
