RBBC sux!

It seems to me that Fantasy Football is a totally different beast than it was just a few short years ago.  In recent years, you could draft a starting running back from most teams in the league and outside of injury issues, be set for the year.  Is it me or are more and more teams operating as running back by committee over the last couple of seasons?  The Broncos have had this mode of operation for some time, but if you stayed aware from Denver RB's this was pretty much a non-issue.  Now it seems like nearly every team operates this way.  When you add injury to the mix, it's hard to intelligently pick a starter.  How many times have you started the lead RB only to have him rack up yards but have the TD's stolen by a lesser back?  It's ridiculous!

I think Fantasy scoring structure should be modified to account for this.  It's always been a problem with WR's and TE's since they might only catch one pass for 13 yards and a TD and score more points than a player who catches 5 passes for 65 yards, but now it's creeped over into the RB position.

Wouldn't it better reward skillful player selection if TD's counted for less?  Maybe 3 points instead of 6?  Just my opinion!  Let me know what you think.
