Chris, I definitely appreciate your input. I honestly looked into it and gave your concern a lot of thought. I would like to keep it at 10 yards (equal to receiving and rushing) for a few reasons.

I checked and out of the top 15 receivers (the most common position to also share return duties) in points there were only 5 players with a significant amount (over 200 yards) of return yardage. Of those 5 players, 3 of them had 800+ receiving yards and 6+ touchdowns. So their return points didn't solely contribute to them being in the top 15 receivers. If return yardage points was so high that a player with little receiving stats had a higher amount of points then a player like Calvin Johnson, then there would definitely be a problem.

I realize our league has more starting receivers (4) then most leagues. Some of you are good with this while others are not. I feel like it is a pretty easy position to fill since at all times there is at least 2 receivers on the field so there are 64 starting receivers in the NFL. So every team in our league has a fair chance at filling their 4 receiver spots with starters. I think the return yardage can help broaden your selection of receivers since our league has to pick a minimum of at LEAST 40 of them. I also didn't want to devalue the return game too much. Just like how last year I increased the points for an interception and added points for tackles, tackle assist, forced fumbles, and tackles for a loss from the year before. I did this to increase the value of the defensive players a little.

Just wanted to thank everyone for another fun and successful fantasy football season. I had a pretty good year as I not only won in our league (finally), but also in my other league. Congrats to Chris (TheWanderer) on 2nd place.

Chris, I just sent you your money

I hope everyone is willing to participate in our 6th year of fantasy football in 2014.

Congrats guys! It was fun. Thought it was a bit weird I didn't have a game this past week but guess that's how it works.

I did win in my other league though. Too bad there's no prize beyond bragging rights with people who don't really care.
