New D/ST scoring opportunity. Punts inside the 5.
We should have the option to award points to D/ST for pinning the offence inside the 5 yard line on a punt.
The ST stands for special teams, right? Punt returns can count for points, why not punts?

Punters are the reason I watch the NFL

Yawn. I'll never understand the need to find new point categories.
David Gonzalez commented
ESPN has the punter as a part of their roster and I would like Yahoo to add this as an option.

Why is this closed and every time a suggestion of it is made, it is merged? If you have no intention of even listening to our requests, at least just tell us to ******** so we look into other leagues and stop hoping you'll actually adjust. These stats are already tracked and this would be a very simple edition.

Add the ability to select punters. Could be as simple as points for pinned in the 20, pinned in the 10, pinned in the 5, net yards. This would be a nice dynamic, that some may not want, but would be a nice option for some.
Travis Ricker commented
I'm not crazy about adding punters, although it would be an interesting spin. However, I wouldn't mind adding some of these stats to a DEF/ST points. For instance, punts downed inside the 20,10,5 like the others have said, but adding it to the defense/special team points.
Eric Bernacki commented
Yes! This is a great idea!
NFL already keeps punter stats, so this should be easy for Yahoo to add.
Stats could be as follows:
Number of punts
Gross Punt Yardage
Total Punt Return Yards
I'd vote for this post if
were the only requested change.
Is it possible to add Punters to Yahoo Line ups? My league would like to expand the kicking game.

I don't mind adding coaches...you could award points based on wins (its like choosing a team defence) AND challenges won.
The idea of adding Punters is good.
I'm not voting for this item because I don't really see how adding Coaches would help the game.
Daniel Vachon commented
I like the idea of adding elements like this. Having a slot for punters would be cool. Fbs too. We differ Tes from WR, FB has a different role than rb.
Then for the people who want win bonus, that could be a head coach slot.
Shawn Jones commented
I agree on adding Punters.
option to roster a punter. net yards, inside 20,10,5 etc...
its a huge part of the game and not represented.
John Haakenson commented
Like the idea, adds yet another dimension to follow. If it is a "horrible idea" don't add the position to your league scoring.
Daniel Maduro commented
Its a great idea. It does not need to be a mandatory position, this way the traditionalists won't need to incorporate it.
this is a horrible idea. punting is terrible. i'd sooner see kickers removed than add punters.
for defensive players CBs are not justified. add catches allowed, targets against for every ___ targets, reception yards allowed, and pass rushers credit QB hits/hurries per ____ seconds, goal line stops, game winning stops per player or team defensive... and finally penalty yards... and NO LIMIT TO STAT CATEGORIES please. Trying to get leagues that have actual value of players.
