Please Note: All official player scoring, live data corrections, and league standings are normally updated by 8:00am Pacific Time the morning after the game(s). Official "Stat Corrections" are not applied until the end of the weekly matchup on Monday.
Statistics that appear on StatTracker (TM) or Live Stats may not reflect all statistics earned by players during their games. If you see incorrect stats on game day, they will likely be corrected during our nightly update.
If they are not corrected by 8:00 AM PT the morning after the game, there may be a pending stat correction for your league. If there is not a pending stat correction, please contact us and we will be happy to investigate further.
Yahoo! Sports will run all live data corrections within leagues as they are received. Please note that these corrections may not be reflected in the box scores that appear on the Yahoo! site, nor will they always appear in box scores from other sources.
Yahoo! Sports is not responsible for initiating the scoring corrections that may appear after games have been completed. Generally, scoring changes are made by the league or other official sources, and are forwarded to Yahoo! by our data provider.
If the discrepancy you are reporting is not resolved during the nightly update, click on the Stat Corrections link under the "Players" tab to view the listing of stat corrections that are pending or have been completed in your league.
All official stat corrections are processed during our nightly system update every Monday, following the completion of Sunday's games.
Stat corrections will be processed only if they apply to the current week's matchup. They must be received from our data provider prior to 11:59pm PDT on the Sunday of the Fantasy week in which the game with the corrected stat was played.
If the stat correction applies to a previous week's matchup, it will not count towards that matchup week's score.
Stat corrections received after the deadline will appear on your league's stat correction page in shaded text.
In this example, the current Fantasy week runs from May 6-12, 2013:
The correction for Josh Wilson would be applied to this Fantasy week's matchup, but the correction for Ronny Cedeno would not be applied to the previous week's matchup score.
Rotisserie and Points Only leagues
Stat corrections will process on the Monday following when the stat correction is received from our data provider.
