Yahoo Question; What're the *'s?

Postby Chopper » Mon Oct 04, 2004 3:31 pm

Each week there are *'s by a number of player's fantasy points in private leagues. Anybody else notice or know why?
Never see them in some leagues, though.
For example, this week, Coles has a * by the points in my one of my private leagues, but not in a different private or in my public.
Shayne Graham, same.
Thought it might be for points attributed to a stat not shown (e.g., if Deion were to get receiving yards in an IDP league). But if so, I haven't figured out what. Maybe Coles and Graham (and Eric Johson and Droughns) made a tackle....or kicked an XP.....or ???

Yeah the * means they got points for something that a certain position doesn't normally get. So if Randy Moss kicked a field goal for some reason, he'd get credit for the points, but it woudln't show up in his stat line.

coles probably made a taccle, and in one league ( mabee IDP ) players get points for taccles, giving coles one point that is not on his stat line, if they are both set up the asme way, which i cont see how they are, i dont know whats up

Thanks, guys. That must be it. If Coles and Graham were each credited with one tackle, then the numbers add up.
