Yahoo users across the country are complaining about their fantasy football scoring not being accurate. The errors appear to be centered around kickers like Greg Zuerlein and Dan Bailey. So far, Yahoo has said the errors will be updated overnight, so fans may not see their score change until tomorrow.

If you click the link, Yahoo sends you to a general page on what to do if you are seeing an error in your fantasy scoring. Seeing as this error appears to be impacting thousands of fantasy football owners, rest assured Yahoo already knows the scoring is not updating.

This does not mean your current score will stand, but does mean you may be delayed in seeing your actual score. Here’s a screenshot of Zuerlin’s fantasy scoring on Yahoo from today, which clearly does not show his actual stats.

Quite the contrary, Zuerlin was a perfect seven for seven (yes, you read that right) in field goal attempts. He also hit two extra points, which means he actually racked up a lot of fantasy points for you, despite it not showing up in the app. So much so fans are joking Zuerlin’s performance broke Yahoo fantasy football. Once the scoring is updated, it will also break the hearts of fantasy owners whose opponent had Zuerlin.

Bailey hit a 34-yard field goal and hit three extra points. Once the scoring is updated, he will not get quite as many points, but every little bit counts.
