    why did robert machems fantasy points drop today? 26.20 to 20.20

    This is where fantasy football scoring is in conflict with the rules of the game, not the Meachem play. You are correct, by the rules of the game, and the logic applied to the Meachem play, when Meachem gained possession of the ball, he immediately becomes an offensive player again and the Redskins the defense. However, the same could be said about any interception or fumble recovery, and that is simply not how defenses in fantasy football are scored. Yes, it's inconsistent, but that's just the way fantasy football works. This is actually the best argument that Meachem deserves the points, not "New Orleans was still the offense".
