Q: How are passing yards average, rushing yards average and receiving yards average calculated?
A: The average categories are calculated using your team's total passing attempts, carries and receptions. To calculate passing yards average, your team's total passing yards are divided by team total passing attempts. To calculate rushing yards average, your team's total rushing yards are divided by your team's total attempts. To calculate receiving yards average, your team's total receiving yards are divided by team total receptions.

Q: Who gets the points for a 2-point conversion?
A: In most of our fantasy football games, the player who scores receives two points. If the quarterback passes to a wide receiver who then scores, the wide receiver gets two points, and the quarterback gets no points. In Draft and Play Fantasy Football, however, 2 points are awarded for a rushing conversion, 1 point is awarded for a passing conversion, and 1 point is awarded for a receiving conversion.

Q: If my player returns a punt for a touchdown, do I get his stats?

Q: My team report says my running back has 104 yards rushing but other websites show he has 105. How can this be?
A: In order to post standings via the Internet as early as possible, we use the official NFL statistics that are available on Monday and Tuesday mornings. Due to further review of game films, the official NFL statistics may be adjusted after Tuesday. These minor changes are usually a yard more or less, a sack instead of a rushing attempt, etc. These changes will not be included in your team's stats until we have verified the stat adjustments. Once the adjustments have been confirmed, they will be reflected on future reports.
