Yes.
Yahoo calls it an "Offensive Fumble Return Touchdown" and it is a default scoring option (effective in Public leagues).

BTW, I think that offensive fumble return TD is a new stat category this year. Last year, McCardell was involved in a similar play and there was a quite an uproar about how it scored (I think Yahoo gave the TD to Tampa DST).
So, I won't be surprised if next year we see a stat called 'Defensive Fumble Return TD'.

Did you guys SEE this TD? I did not, but from every description I have heard and read of it, it should without a doubt be worth 6 points for the Ravens Defense, right? If it was a TD, Yahoo will eventually correct the problem.

I hope.


I tried too. Here is their generic response, which has almost nothing to do with my request! Cliff at Yahoo! Help, you suck.


Hello,

Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

Statistics that appear on StatTracker (TM) or Live Stats may not
reflect
all statistics earned by players during their games.

All player statistics will be updated by the morning following the game
of a particular day/night. Rankings or scoring totals will also be
updated at this time.

* Some statistical categories, including tackles and passes defended,
are unofficial statistics and will not be displayed while games are in
progress. Scoring for these categories will be updated early each
morning after games are played.

** You can click on the 'Stat Corrections' link from the Research and
Analysis home page to view a list of corrections that have been
processed in your league.

*** Please note that any statistical changes that are made will only
impact head-to-head matchups if they are made before the first game of
the following week.

Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Customer Care.

Regards,

Cliff

Type your feedback here:

Yahoo! was wrong to take away the defensive touchdown for Baltimore. A defensive player intercepted it, a defensive player recovered the fumble, a defensive player scored the touchdown. Therefore, it's a defensive TD!!!

i remember that play...brad johnson passed, it was picked off, then the guy who picked it off fumbled, mcardell recovered and scored a td. no one was credited with a td in yahoo scoring. i remember because i had both keenan and the bucs DST and i was pissed! :-t

yeah thats crappy about the ravens not getting credited for the td return on DST. cbs sportsline gave credit.

WTF!
Man, I got seriously hosed!
I ended up in a freaking tie (against the guy I'm in contention with for the final playoff spot) this week due to the non-TD for my Baltimore D.
CRAP!
Where did my points disappear to? :-t

Dopey question. If Reed fumbled it, then you should you dock the Baltimore D 2 points the same way you would an offensive player?

No, because the fumble wasn't lost. :-b

I don't have Baltimore's defense this year, but I agree, it should count as a TD for them. Bottom line is that a defensive player at the time of the snap scored the TD. Yahoo is always stupid on anything that is even partially controversal.

On a side note, does that 6 points count against Cincinatti's defense? That could also cost a couple points in leagues that count scoring against.
