I did, but I was trying to make you examine my point further. The fact is when a player returns a punt for a TD, the entire team is not credited with a TD; only the player who carried the ball would. If Reggie had a game where he rushed for two TDs and returned a punt for another, his stat line would read 3 TDs. Deservedly so, because he's the one who scored the TDs in accordance with the way records have always been kept.

Likewise, when a player scores a rushing TD on offense, you don't credit the entire offense in the stats. In fantasy, we don't draft entire offenses; we draft players.

The reason a team defense/team special teams is chosen in fantasy football is for simplicity sake only. Fantasy sports have always been based on the stats recorded from the games, and typically those stats which are printed in the newspaper. That's how fantasy was started and it's still based on those roots.

In a pristine, perfect world, fantasy teams would draft an entire defense and keep their stats. Some leagues do this. But it becomes cumbersome. So they abbreviated it.

You're getting lost in the abbreviations, I think.

i understand and i don't even disagree with the concept....it's cool with me if y'all want to score that way

i also understand the reasoning behind not awarding a punt return to an individual since it's rare to have a player like Reggie that returns punts and gets 10-15 touches on offense

Ok guys, since it seemed like most of y'all were against defensive players, I left it out. So all I did was fix the TD passes to 6 points instead of 4.

How do y'all feel about points for catches? Or 1/2 point for catches?

I've never been a fan of getting points for catches....because if you record a catch for -5 yards...you shouldn't get rewarded for it

Sorry dude, I didn't choose the people who responded first, I chose the people who I know best or that have contributed to this board the most.
