I'm pretty sure that it's a fumble. Why else would they have called in a fumble into the endzone for a touchback?

I'm in Yahoo and as of now, I don't have -2, but we'll see tomorrow with the scoring corrections.

It seems to me that it's defintely a fumble. The question is whether it's a "lost" fumble.

I could make arguments both ways: the other team didn't really recover it; on the other hand, possession changed hands.

This is one of those arcane rules that we won't know how is scored until probably tomorrow when Yahoo updates.

That would surely go down in the annals of fantasy history.
Tip: If you're ahead by a small margian and your opponet has no players on MNF, bench whoever you have that is YTP. Negative points are rare, but they happen.

Care to explain how a fumble out of bounds is suddenly a fumble lost Pete?

It was a fumble into the endzone, hense the touchback.
