Fantasy football scoring has soared in recent years.
The lockout season was unkind to defenses to start the season. How else would you explain Chad Henne opening up with a 400-yard jaunt through New England's defense?
Last year, the pistol and read-option made their way into the NFL. Guys like Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III were able to parlay the offensive strategy into some big fantasy games.
Then there is the aforementioned running back renaissance, which culminated in Adrian Peterson's incredible fantasy season.
This is more of a guy feeling than anything, but something has to give soon. Defenses will catch up with the read-option. Even if they aren't able to stop it, containing it somewhat will depress scores.
Plus, fantasy scoring cannot just keep increasing. Like anything, there is an ebb and flow to fantasy football. It's time for the former.
