Should R. Wayne have 17 rushing yards?

Postby Guru22 » Mon Sep 15, 2008 2:55 pm

With the lateral from Gonzalez. It is not officially up on nfl.com, but shouldnt a leteral count as rushing yards. I remember something similar to this happeneing a couple years ago with Reggie Brown from Philly and I think they gave him the points for a rush. What does everyone think?

I did not watch the play....but if lateral happened beyond the line of scrimmage then it is not a rush, I think

I think the NFL will issue their updated stats tomorrow after ruling on all odd plays and the sports bureaus will adopt their decision.

I suppose in your league if you guys all agree you could go against whatever they rule (if they rule it wasn't a rush), but that's up to you.

So gonzo gets credit for the catch, and receiving hards up to the pitch, and Wayne should get the rushing yds up to the 1 yd line, is this how it will be distributed as far as fantasy points? I'm just trying to make sure because I'm in a tight game up 20 with Barber & Romo facing Westbrook so every little point matters.

According to the NFL Commentary from the broadcaster on the STRIKEZONE Equivalent of the NFL Ticket on DTV, he would have gotten a TD RUSH.

Well... if he got a TD. It's looking like 17 rush yards and that's it.

I had this happen a couple years ago and I did not get any rushing yards but got the td. it went under passing yards.

waynes 5/93, 1td

4, 17, 3, 17, 32, 20

you already got the points for it if your fantasy statline reads 5/93, 1td... ;-D

he only had 5 receptions... but add the stats... 93 yards

Elias sports bureau is the official statistician for the NFL. You can check their web site for this, but the way they have scored this play in the past is that the receiver who caught the ball gets receiving yards up to the point of the lateral, then the receiver who caught the lateral, Wayne in this case, gets receiving yards from the spot of the lateral to the goal line. Wayne then also gets a receiving TD credited to him.

There are no rushing yards on the play.

I think that sounds right (I edited out the TD part since he didn't score).

Can you even have a rushing attempt and a passing attempt on the same play? I think that would create a problem.
