Good 3rd Down Backs and Returners

I have been able to build some great teams (3 sb wins in 7 years) but I cant seem to find a good returner or 3rd down back. I was able to get lucky with the returner with one of my rookie cbs this year but cant seem to find a good 3rd down back.

What do you look for in recruiting to get these 2? I would be willing to keep someone on the roster to get a good returner...or a 3rd down back...like devin hester.

Darren Sproles was a monster returning kicks for me, he'd get like 2-3 TDs a season. The game doesn't love him as an actual back, but you can get him pretty cheap.

Re: Good 3rd Down Backs and Returners

So if I see a hb with him as the comparison he might be a good returner as well? Should I check any of the attributes (speed....elusive) as well?

Perhaps. Speed guys usually are returners, and there will always be a few draft guys with "Return Ability" as a +

Hester is nice in the Play Now games as a returner.

He may not break everything but he sets up some nice field position starts. A vital need with the mire that is the initial Offense in Chicago.

I look at speed and acceleration.

Re: Good 3rd Down Backs and Returners

For Returners: Cribbs, Hester, Ted Ginn Jr, Desean Jackson
For 3rd Down Backs i usually use my Fullback or Tight End maybe....i also use a lot of change-of-pace people. For me its Brandon Jacobs and Steve Slaton.
