Anyone hear any updates as to why they are not counting this. I lost by 4.7 points and this would turn the tide.

Hello,

Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

I appreciate your inquiry with regards to the fumble recovery return TD
by Seattle.

This play is recorded as an offensive fumble return TD as Seattle had
possession of the football, fumbled, recovered the football and scored a
TD. Therefore, the Seattle DEF is not credited with a TD on the play.

Here is the play-by-play description:

Frank Gore rushed up the middle for 5 yard loss. Frank Gore fumbled.
Marcus Trufant recovered fumble and returned for 4 yards. Marcus Trufant
fumbled. Craig Terrill recovered fumble and returned for 10 yards
(Olindo Mare made PAT)

Therefore, Craig Terrill is credited with an offensive fumble return TD
in leagues that use the stat category. Seattle DEF is not credited with
a TD.

Please feel free to email me again with any further comments or
questions.

Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

Regards,

Preston

Awful reasoning. Defensive unit was on the field. Forced the fumble. Recovered it. Ran a bit and fumbled, recovered again then Scored. It's still the Defensive team on the field.

If P. Rivers fumbles, LT recovers runs a bit, fumbles and Gates picks it up and scores, you best believe that's offense and at no point does it turn defensive. Maybe it's a bad example, all you have to do is add in that Denver picked it up, ran with it for 5 yards and fumbled, with Gates picking it up after and scoring. They still aren't Defense.

Are interceptions going to be offensive now if they suddenly decided that the second they have the ball they're on offense?

Awful, awful reasoning.

Yah, awful reasoning...same thing goes if one player forces the fumble and another guy picks it up...why is that any different. It's still the DEF forcing the fumble and scoring. As soon as they pick it up, SEA is on offense, so by Yahoo logic there are no DEF TDs ever!! Stupid.

At least I didn't lose because of this and I feel bad for those who did.

even if your yahoo league says you lost by 3, any scoring changes will be retroactive and you will win the game when the changes are made (assuming they do. luckily i won anyway because of westbrook)

they better change it though because its an obvious mistake

Good news...at least I think...

I just received my response from Yahoo and it sounds like they'll fix it.

Hello,

Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Sports.

I appreciate your inquiry with regards to the fumble recovery return TD
by Seattle.

Engineering is currently working on a scoring fix in order to credit the
Seattle DEF with the TD.


This play is currently being recorded as an offensive fumble return TD
as Seattle had possession of the football, fumbled, recovered the
football and scored a TD. Therefore, the Seattle DEF is not credited
with a TD on the play.

Here is the play-by-play description:

Frank Gore rushed up the middle for 5 yard loss. Frank Gore fumbled.
Marcus Trufant recovered fumble and returned for 4 yards. Marcus Trufant
fumbled. Craig Terrill recovered fumble and returned for 10 yards
(Olindo Mare made PAT)

Therefore, Craig Terrill is being credited with an offensive fumble
return TD in leagues that use the stat category.

Please feel free to email me again with any further comments or
questions.

Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Sports.

Regards,

Marshall

Hopefully that means it'll fix.

My guess is they had a lot of complaints about it and just set up a template response for people to one click respond with. At least it's a glimmer of hope to hear that they're "working on a fix"
