12 Targets in Return-Yardage Leagues

By Kevin English 9:06am EDT 6/27/18


Return yardage leagues remain uncommon in fantasy. But they add another strategy element, boosting the outlook of some established studs and elevating those who you might otherwise avoid.

Here are the top fantasy relevant guys we expect to handle returns in 2018.


Dante Pettis, WR, 49ers

The 49ers traded up for Pettis in Round 2 of the draft. A 2017 All-American at Washington, Pettis not only brings plus athleticism on offense — he shows it on special teams, too.

He tallied an NCAA record 9 punt return TDs across 4 seasons, including 4 as a senior. He ranked top-10 in yards per return in 2015, 2016 and 2017. For his career, Pettis averaged a sparkling 13.7 YPR.

He’s a good bet to at least take punt return duties from Trent Taylor.
