Yahoo Fantasy Football- Jayeln Samuels Incorrect Position Designation

Yahoo Fantasy Football- Jayeln Samuels Incorrect Position Designation

All,

Can someone at yahoo correct Jaylen Samuels Position Designation across all Yahoo fantasy football formats to RB only; currently he is showing as a RB, TE combo enabling people to play him as a TE but all other leagues (CBS/ESPN) show him as a RB only. This is important as playoffs start this week for many leagues potentially impacting scoring.

 

Thank you

Yahoo does not remove position eligibility during the season.

Agreed! Yahoo, fix this egregious error. Jaylen Samuels, Pittsburgh Steelers rb, is being dual-listed as  a tight end. This player has not taken snaps from the tight end position all season, as McDonald and James are the clear and proven Pittsburgh tight ends. Not only is the dual listing incorrect, it gives the fantasy player who owns him an unfair advantage of playing a running back in the tight end slot. Tight ends rarely get as many touches as running backs. Please remedy this error and list Jaylen Samuels only as a running back.

Why not? Other leagues have fixed it. This is literally affecting every league right now.

Total BS, I lost the league because of this flaw. Will never play in another Yahoo league. Get it right.

Re: Yahoo Fantasy Football- Jayeln Samuels Incorrect Position Designation

Has anyone else lost real money because of this Jaylen Samuels designation?  I was in a Pro league and eliminated in the semifinals when my opponent was allowed to play this starting running back at TE.  Trying to get Yahoo to correct was a futile effort.  I ended up scoring more points that all the other owners this week, but instead of the top prize I only get third and my money back.  If anyone else is in the same situation I would like to hear about it and also if you have been able to get anyone at Yahoo to offer a real solution I would love to have their contact information.

 

Thanks,

Bill

Yahoo sets position based on played year before.   In College ( Last Year) he was a TE also.  It was all good..    This is Usually is in Basketball and Baseball where some Players play multiple positions.  Next year he will be an RB only
