Thanks. I understand the problems with the season projections; like for example Dez Bryant. However, it does seem believable to project return yardage and TD just like any other offensive stat for that week (like # of KR/PR attempts, yards per return, TD percentage etc). Yahoo (which is what my league uses) does actually have projections for return yards and is factored into the weekly projections but I would like to get a 2nd opinion. I was listening to the Waiver Wire audible today and Bloom said that Sproles is a borderline RB1 if the league counts return yards and that's the kind of insight I would love to get.
You won't see return yard rankings, they're not easily projected. You just need to gauge it yourself. You should know who is returning kicks, so factor in some slight bumps to those guys when comparing them to others, but don't go overboard. Returners can lose their jobs at any time. Even the elite guys can end up losing work or lose the job completely if they suddenly are relied on on offense and aren't worth the injury risk.

I'm just wondering how many people are doing leagues that counts return yards. I'm sure we're not the only ones in the same boat. I'm trying to adapt right now but even drafting was tough. I have no idea how to rank someone like DeSean Jaackson. Is he ahead of Andre Johnson in a league like this? Is Percy Harvin ahead of AJ? What about Devin Hester? I'm even tempted to roster Ted Ginn but I have no idea when I would play him LOL
I got into one of these this season as well. I knew it was going to be a long season when Ted Ginn outscored Calvin Johnson last weekend. I acquired Brown. He plays the Seahawks this weekend plus had 9 targets last week. I think he might be the overall top scorer this weekend. I've got trade offers in for Harvin and Cobb as well. I'm going to probably dump Brandon Jacobs for Leon Washington. One thing I did notice and you might be able to use is there there are only a few running backs that return. The aforementioned Washington is one, McCluster is another. Sproles would be sick value in a league like this as well as long as he holds down those duties. I'm thinking of offering something along the lines of Miles Austin for him. Just a funky setup but you have to adapt to your environment.
