Does your league count tackles for offensive players?

Its not about some mythical code of ethics. Its about our leagues rule-set being in favor with 100% of the owners.

It's about making sense.  If JJ Watt lines up at TE and catches a pass you should get credit.  If Julio Jones goes back on D on a hail mary play and gets a pick he should get credit.  It doesn't matter what position a player plays it matters what they do on the field. This isn't rocket science.  Why would you want to play in a league where a player doesn't get credit for whatever stats he gets.  If a QB catches a TD should be not get credit because he is a QB ?  Of course not he does get credit so what does it matter what position any other player is when they make a play on the field.  It shouldn't is your answer.

Its not about making sense either. That a bit OCD to me. Its about our league and our owners.

Offense gets offense and defense gets defense. Simple and sensible. That our QB doesnt get that tackle credit or whatever means nothing to us.

Yes, they do.  We set the rules on points for each potential stat a player could be credited with, and then have those same things for all players.  If a kicker gets rushing yards on a trick play, but then fumbles it - you get all that computed for his score.

I believe most people are debating the sensible part of your statement.   I think everyone is in agreement that your scoring system is simple and you are correct that as long as everyone knows up front and has a clearly identified scoring system that nobody in the league has a complaint because each owner should then know what they are getting into to.

 

The debate is over whether or not the system is sensible.  To most it doesn't seem to be the case.  Allowing all positions to get credit for the performance they earn on the field seems like the sensible way to go.  All players get credit in the NFL for the stats they accrue regardless of the position they are assigned at the start of the game.  Disregarding a portion of the statistics seems like it goes against the point of fantasy football.  This is where the sensible part of your argument seems to lose credibility.
