The latter three are quality fantasy QBs already, they don't need added point bonuses just because their team uses the 4-5 yard out / in route in lieu of a run on 1st down.
Probably my least favorite rule in fantasy sports.
I get why someone wouldn't like it. But I think it makes a league more competitive overall because there aren't many Vicks and Bens out there so it allows a deeper pool of players. A nice side effect is it gives a guy a chance to get someone off the waiver wire to stay competitive in case a major injury to his QB. He may not win much after that but at least he won't be a cake walk for everyone else, you'll still have to remain involved to beat him. I suppose there are other ways to to accomplish the same thing but none that make any more sense to me I guess.
My least favorite rule has to be a TD given less points than what a TD is actually worth. Like a passing TD being worth 4 points but all others 6. Either that or using some weird lineups, why in the world would I want to start 2 QB's, doesn't make any sense to me.
