A sad fantasy story about Browns WR Cribbs

Desperate for a No. 3 wide receiver in a deep experts league, I added and started Browns WR Joshua Cribbs this week. I had lost Seahawks WR Nate Burleson to an injured ankle, and there wasn’t much else on the waiver wire.

Well, the move would have been brilliant had the scoring system rewarded points for return yards and touchdowns.

Cribbs has two returns for scores against the Chiefs, one for 103 yards and the other for 100 yards. In the leagues that I run, where players are given those points rather than defense and special teams, Cribbs would have 20 fantasy points from those two returns alone.

I knew going in that this experts league didn’t reward for returns, but this (like Ted Ginn vs. the Jets earlier this season) is just another example of why all scoring systems should be altered to reward players for their skills and abilities.
