Vikings WR Joe Webb playing QB
Last Updated: December 17, Save this article to My Help for easy reference. You can visit the article at any time from any computer.
Joe Webb was initially drafted by the Vikings with the intention of converting him from a QB to a WR. Based on Minnesota's roster needs, Webb was moved to QB on their depth chart in the off season after he had been awarded WR eligibility. Once eligibility has been assigned to a player, it cannot be removed during the season under any circumstances. Joe Webb will retain eligibility at both positions for the remainder of the season.
If you are participating in a private league, you may want to discuss this issue with your commissioner as they have the ability to enforce offline rules and prevent Webb from being used at a WR position.
You receive scoring for all players in your active lineup based on their performances in actual professional football games. All active players receive fantasy points for all scoring categories selected in your league.
For example, if a WR were to throw a touchdown pass, he would receive the corresponding points for a touchdown pass as determined by your league settings.
Players may be eligible at multiple positions during the current Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football season. Initial position eligibility was determined based on past participation and information supplied by the teams during the off-season.
Players will earn eligibility at a new position only when their primary position has changed and the change is not expected to be a temporary one. For example, a defensive lineman who lines up at tight end or in the backfield during goal line situations WILL NOT earn eligibility at a new position.
Players will not lose position eligibility when moving from one position to another. If a TE begins to play at RB, he will be eligible for the remainder of the season as both a TE and RB.
When a player has earned eligibility at a new position, the position will be visible on the pull-down position menu on your team roster. Changes will be made during the season as soon as new information is available to us.
All players earn fantasy points for all of your league's categories. Points coming from categories not normally associated with a player's position (e.g., a kicker who throws a touchdown pass) are called miscellaneous points and are indicated by a "" to the right of a player's point total.
The moron's that think a player should get only points earned for performing under the slot he is in (QB pts for QB, WR pts for WR) are FOOLS!!!!
Look at how many players do things other than the Slot they are in! Remember when LT used to throw passses? Vrabel Caught Passes? Randel EL? Wild Cat? End Arounds? RB's Lining up as a WR on plays. The list is endless and those players receive points for what they DO irrelevant of the slot they are in. It's MORONIC to say just give hime WR pts if he is in a WR position! Just Butt Hurt Babies that were slow on the waiver wire.

So this makes sense to you? He was on the depth chart as a QB from the offseason, so Yahoo can't change it or didn't bother to. Lazy!
The botton line is that everyone crying about Webb dosent have him!!! If they would have been smart and not wasted their waiver then they wouldnt be crying, or if they had payed attention to FF then they would have gotton him before anyone else. So to all those that are crying, THERE IS ALWAYS NEXT YEAR LMAO!!!!!
all you folks griping about this, are you guys new? because this is NOTHING new....get over it folks, stay on top of your game.....and for the record i have webb in only 1 of 6 teams. I commission leagues every year, and the 2 i run this year, im THANKFUL im not running leagues full of whining crybabies not one of the 19 other managers in my leagues are whining. no one in the others i play on yahoo are griping either. Know why? its NOTHING NEW

I understand yahoo's logic in allowing a player to maintain eligibility at multiple positions; however, fantasy points should only be awarded to a player if they are earned from the same position as the roster slot that they are in for the particular week. I.E. if Joe Webb begins a play at the QB position he is only eligible to get your team fantasy points if you have him in the QB slot.
