The MOST Overlooked Rule In Fantasy Football!
August 18, 2013
Picture this: The Quarterback fumbles the handoff to the Running Back only to have the Running Back pick up the football to run it in to the end zone for a touchdown. In the minds of any normal football fan those 6 points go the Running Back, in the mind of an NFL referee, it doesn’t because what you just saw was an: Offensive Fumble Recovery Touchdown. -No one gets credit.
UNLESS your fantasy leagues’ commish has the OFRTD rule activated. The OFRTD (offensive Fumble Recovery for a TD) is one of those categories that are used in less than 5% of the leagues.
We call it the Frank Gore rule, because the last time it happened was in week 15 of the 2012 NFL season, or, semi-finals for most fantasy football leagues. When this happened last year it broke the hearts of many a fantasy owner.
So, this year, before this someone cries foul and tries to change the rule after they realize they don’t get credit for a TD, look for the rule in your fantasy league settings and save yourself some heartbreak!
