Typically this stat only affects leauges that use Individual Defensive Players (IDP). The reason for this is that the fumble recovery falls under D/ST categories and does not benefit an individual player in most leagues.
This is the same reason that Edelman (NE - WR) does not receive any credit for his fumble recovery and TD against the Jets. I believe it would be up to your league to debate if BUF defense should have received credit, but that opens up any prior issues to change.
