    Julian Edelman got no points for fumble return for TD

    Julian Edelman got no points for his fumble return for TD this week. Is there an error in the Yahoo scoring system? Is that not considered a Offensive Fumble Return TD which should give me 6 points?

    • Where have you been? And did you really post this Twice?? Unless you had IDP players you won't get the points. It is a Def/St stat not a player stat.

      Julian Edelman fumble recovery 11/22

      Description

      In the Thanksgiving Day matchup between the Patriots and Jets, Jets returner Joe McKnight fumbled a kickoff in the 2nd quarter. This kickoff return fumble was recovered by the Patriots’ Julian Edelman and taken in for a touchdown.

      Resolution

      Since this was a fumble return, the touchdown is credited to the Patriots’ Defense/Special Teams, and not to the player (Edelman). Individual players are not credited for D/ST fumble recoveries or TDs, unless your league uses individual defensive players and scores for these categories.
