YAHOO STAT ERROR = FRED TAYLOR!!!!!!!!!!

Postby Gridiron Guru » Tue Sep 20, 2005 1:49 pm

Yahoo has made a stat error that is affecting the matchup outcomes in all of its fantasy football leagues. Yahoo says Fred Taylor rushed for 162 yards, while he actually rushed for only 81. This error has caused many managers to lose who should have won, and vice versa. Has anyone else in Yahoo leagues noticed this? It needs to be fixed, but what is the best way to contact Yahoo (other than emailing customer care)?

All of Fred's stats have been doubled by them....

He should have:

16 carries for 81 yards and 3 catches for 18 yards....

Yahoo shows:

32 carries for 162 yards and 6 catches for 36 yards....


I played against someone who started him, too.... I'm not sure if it makes a difference in the outcome of our matchup, as he beat me by about 20 points, but I would still like to see it fixed....

I wish some of my players would catch the "double production" disease :-B

Reminds me of a couple of years ago when one of the managers in our league got 1035 pts of production out of Todd Heap (as I remember). Shocked me to see that score, until it was fixed.

It will be fixed and I'm sure they are already aware of it.

Rule #1: Never Trust a Computer

If it's a close game and I am sittin on my butt i will get out the pen and paper and do it the ol' way.

Have lost 2 games since i have been playing FF because I thought i was ahead and benched players to avoid minus points, then had the stats corrected and lost.

Every now and then it aint bad to do it with pen and paper, that was the way we always did it before
