I cannot say it enough: we need to revamp how we do this position.

That's pretty much all the revamping you can hope to do. Even that would radically change the position. I have no idea how else you want to change it. That's the way it is.

The Ravens have allowed the fewest yards in the NFL and the fourth fewest points at just 13.7 ppg. And what huge reward am I reaping in the fantasy world from them? A whopping 4.3 points a game. Damn, I know sacks and turnovers are important too, but the main job of a defense is to keep the other team out of the end zone. Giving up 14 pts a game will almost certainly make you a top five D in real life, yet it'll only earn you 1 stinkin' point in fantasy.
What you say is true, but that just means you picked the wrong team in the draft. You shouldn't worry about picking a defense that gives up few points but sucks in all fantasy point areas, you should worry about picking a defense that's going to score you fantasy points. That's two different things. There are plenty of skill position players who will help their real team win real games but won't do jack in fantasy football. So you don't draft those players. You draft players (or defenses) who will score you fantasy points.
What's going on here, DL, is you want us to change the rules to cover for you drafting a bad fantasy defense. Hey, you screwed up, we all do, but none of the rest of us are trying to change the rules to cover our asses. Next year draft a defense that's going to score fantasy points. As you said, there's only a handful of high scoring defenses, but that just means if you want one you have to draft one higher like I did and like a couple other people did.

What's going on here, ShadowDog, is that I've long been against negative points given to K's & D/ST and I've always felt they should be a bigger contributer. You act like this is the first time I ever brought this up. It just so happens that the Ravens provide a perfect illustration as to why I think we should change it and, because they are on my team, I'm very aware of their fantasy production. As for fantasy vs reality, I've always been pretty consistent in trying to get one to follow the other whenever feasible. Other positions are set up so that, by and large, a good player in reality is a good player in fantasy. As it should be.

Oh, and I'm adding "IDP" to the swear filter when I get home.

And I just threw out the IDP league because I was annoyed. I actually did enjoy the IDP league I belonged to years ago, but with the way things are here at Nightly, we'd probably have to start drafting in June.

Just cause you don't understand how it works doesn't mean the rest of us don't either
and I already brought up that you couldn't do it in ESPN.

I'd also like to think about redoing the keeper rules in the league. Maybe a maximum 3-4 year contract per each keeper.
