Ezekiel Elliott stat correction

Ezekiel Elliott stat correction

My League has a stat correction for Ezekiel Elliott in week 15 that doesn't make sense. Prior to the correction he was penalized -2 points for a fumble. Then he was stat corrected to remove the fumble and I end up losing to my opponent by one point and now I am playing in the third place game instead of for the championship. I went to the NFL site as well as ESPN and Yahoo and they all still list Ezekiel with a fumble for that game. So I don't understand where the stat correction came from and in my mind it should be reversed

Normally, the stats are final Thursday mornings because the NFL issues their final updates late Wednesday.

 

This week, because there is no Thursday night game, the stats are final in H2H leagues Saturday morning.

 

The time delay is because the NFL does not review the stats until Wednesday.  Yahoo can do nothing about that.

Yes, they're all listing it as a fumble, but the correction has it as a recovered fumble, not a lost one. Also, this happened on 4th and 1 and Zeke lost yards.   So the Colts got the ball on downs, not because of a lost fumble.

The stat correction came from the NFL.  That is why Yahoo changed Elliott's numbers.

 

You can find the updated NFL stats here.

The play you are referring to happened in the very early part of the 2nd quarter.

What is the cutoff for stat corrections and league adjustments, all the way through when follow up games start? I'm in the same boat, found out Thursday morning that there was a stat correction. I had only won semi-finals by .5 points, and now find myself going for 3rd place vs. 1st.

 

The stat correction didn't come into play 3 to 4 days later, that's absurd!
