Ezekiel Elliott had a fumble ruled to be not a fumble, which adds two points to his score, and Jared Goff had an interception turned into a fumble, which goes from a play that takes away one point, in some leagues, to a play that now takes away two points, killing a number of fantasy owners' hopes and dreams in the process.
Potential major fantasy implications on a stat correction: the NFL ruled that Ezekiel Elliott did NOT lose a fumble in Week 15. He gets two points back, likely swinging many matchups.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) December 20, 2018
This is the type of stuff that is happening all over the fantasy world today. For the first time this season, we notice a stat correction as these are literally ending or saving fantasy seasons.
This is one of the worst fantasy beats I have ever seen:— Graham Barfield (@GrahamBarfield) December 19, 2018
My fiancée made the championship in her work league, but her would-be opponent just lost on a Jared Goff stat correction. INT (-1 point) changed to fumble (-2) caused the No. 1 seed (11-3 record) to lose... by .08 points.
This isn't your average Week 6 stat correction, this is potentially winning or losing people hundreds or even thousands of dollars by knocking them in or out of the fantasy playoffs or championship matchup.
How would you determine the winner if it’s a tie and have same amount of bench points!?!? Goff stat correction made this happen. @MatthewBerryTMR @FieldYates @ESPNFantasy @DanielDopp pic.twitter.com/S0Di9yqxFO— D_Thomp (@Goods209) December 19, 2018
I can't imagine having my season end on a stat correction. It's something right out of a fantasy football nightmare. Unfortunately, for many people throughout the country today, this nightmare has become an actual reality.
