Elias Sports Makes Several Scoring Changes To The Steelers-Dolphins Game

Elias Sports has made a few scoring changes to the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Miami Dolphins and as a result, it cost a linebacker a sack and a few wide receivers some yardage.

The sack of Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill with 13:18 remaining in the second quarter has now been changed to an aborted play, so as a result, linebacker Jason Worilds is no longer credited for two sacks in the game. Worilds now has seven for the season instead of eight.

The final play of the game that included multiple laterals has finally been sorted out and as a result, wide receiver Antonio Brown has been credited with one additional receiving yard. He is now officially credited with 138 yards receiving for the game. Wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery was docked a few yards and he now has 57 for the game. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders gained a few yards as he now has 65 instead of the 57 he was originally credited with. That change also includes him being docked five yards for an incorrect scoring late in the fourth quarter.

In addition to those changes, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been credited with five receiving yards, while running back Le’Veon Bell was docked nine receiving yards. Bell is now credited with 19 receiving yards in total for the game.

Now the real question. Who won or lost in their fantasy football playoffs as a result of these scoring changes?

    Somehow this does not surprise me. Again, I down voted myself, so have at it.

    Unless they changed many of the fundamental rules and scoring system for football, my fantasy team is still kaput.

    Fantasy football is stupid it makes people focus on how an individual plays instead focusing on what really matters wins and losses. I don’t care how many fantasy points a person has the team just needs to go out on the field and play with all they got. Get a reality check.

    Nothing stupid about fantasy footballl.. Although it is a team sport. Players do like to do well in their personal stats…

    So I guess Worilds just got about $400K cheaper to sign in FA next year. 🙂

    How did Brown get credited with an additional receiving yard on the final play? In order for it to be a legal play, his “reception” would have to be the result of a lateral which means each yard he gained should be a rushing yard. You should not be credited with receiving yards for anything other than a forward pass.

    None of that is true.
