Yahoo Fantasy Football managers understand that they are waiting for news regarding the postponement of the Week 17 game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Buffalo Bills. Because these are unprecedented circumstances, we wanted to be as clear as possible while we wait for the NFL’s final decision on the game.
here is what you need to know If you’re in a fantasy league with an active playoff season
Week 17 is finalized and the standings will be updated for now, but the updated scores will apply once a decision is made regarding the Bills vs. Bengals game. Waivers will be handled as normal for leagues playing in Week 18.
In honor of the official NFL Gamebook for Week 17, Yahoo is issuing a stats fix to update fantasy scores to match official records.
If the revised score changes the outcome of the Week 17 matchup, we will retroactively adjust the Week 18 matchup to reflect that change.
Payments for private and public prize leagues will not be processed until the NFL makes a final determination regarding the Bills Bengals’ game status.
League commissioners can make manual changes using the commissioner tool, but we encourage commissioners to wait until the NFL makes an official decision regarding the game.
If your league has an active Week 18 playoff matchup, you should set your lineup as normal.
The Bills-Bengals game in Week 17 is currently postponed. As such, all accumulated stats are kept as-is for now (according to the official NFL Gamebook).
In case of Bills-Bengals game cancellation
If the game was finalized by the NFL and scored as is (i.e. the score was finalized as 7-3), all fantasy points will remain intact.
If the game is canceled and the stats are zeroed by the NFL, all fantasy points accumulated in the Bills-Bengals game will be zeroed to reflect the official record.
For Bills-Bengals game continuation
Waivers will be handled as normal for leagues playing in Week 18.
