Julian Edelman fumble recovery 11/22
ID: SLN9143Refers to: Fantasy Football
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.
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

So the league has individual defensive players... DB, DE, LB........ however does an offensive player require those stat catagories to receive the points.... I was under the understanding that if your league has IDP than the points received would adjust.... just like when an offensive player gets a tackle.... it makes the adjustment
