Samuels Should not be TE/RB

Samuels Should not be TE/RB

Literally no other fantasy site has him as a TE, yet yahoo does. I need to win this week and the guy picked up Samuels...No big deal EXCEPT I find out that yahooo is going to let him play Samuels as a TE???? What is this garbage. If you click on his name in yahoo fantasy it brings up his profile where it lists him as ONLY a RB. Change his designation yahoo, he should only be a RB. If I lose because of this I will never use yahoo again.

Re: Samuels Should not be TE/RB

He was originally listed as a TE before season start. Position eligibility is determined by a player’s past participation and info our data provider collects from NFL teams. Our data provider makes the final decision (there’s no set criteria) on position eligibility including when a new position is added. If it’s determined that a player’s primary position has changed, then that player gains eligibility for the new position but won’t lose their original designation.

Re: Samuels Should not be TE/RB

They're not that stuck in their old ways....they have Samuels listed as a RB ONLY in Yahoo Daily Fantasy...which means they know what the correct designation is but refuse to change it. This has the potential to change a ton of leagues...bye bye yahoo

I hope they do not change it now, I would be screwed. I dropped Ebron to pick him up and play him in the TE position.  Hopefully he is the starting RB the rest of the year, CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!!!!!

Re: Samuels Should not be TE/RB

We were one of the first teams ever to register on yahoo fantasy....and this is the last straw. Total crap!!! Not to mention the horrible draft parameters, inflexibility of commissioner control and contestant password verification.

Re: Samuels Should not be TE/RB

Then if he plays as a RB this week and does not line up once as a TE his designation should change. Being this is the only position he’s played in the NFL which is the only league he can be used in fantasy.
