The NFL and the Elias Sports Bearau meet on Wednesday to confer and make official statistic changes to the previous week's games every week.

We will be changing all stats that the parties officially change. These changes will take place by our system on Friday morning, as the NFL sometimes makes their changes as late as Thursday night (they did this in 2010 to Rashard Mendenhall for his Week 15 game vs the Jets minutes before the Steelers kicked off their Week 16 vs. Carolina on Thursday night). Barring anything very major (we'll take this on a case-by-case basis) we will never process any official changes made after Friday AM. This will be up to your commissioner to change manually if that happens (which is usually never the case).

Although not common, stat changes may very well change some of your matchup results and change overall PF results (more common). You may opt out of this at Commish Options>Edit Tiebreak Rules. If any matchup has changed in your league, you'll see it in the Front Office as an alert.

For now, you can see the stat changes that were made by going to Scoreboard>Stat Changes

To sum up:

- We will change everything the NFL changes, but the stat changes on the scoreboard sub tab will be specific to your league position eligibility and scoring rules. Scoreboard>Stat Changes

- Your league is alerted in your front office if the result of a matchup changed

- Your commissioner can opt out of this at any time at Commish Options>Edit Tiebreak Rules

I think the stats corrections should be processed on Wednesday prior to the next weeks games starting on Thursday.

In a playoff scenario if the stat corrections change the outcome of a game on Friday will Fleaflicker automatically update the playoff bracket after the playoffs have started on Thursday? Will you guys take a team that was in the playoffs out, and take a team that was not in the playoffs and place them in? Will you guys automatically update the seeding? Or will these duties be left up to the commissioner of each league?

I see this causing a lot of problems. I think you guys should process the stat corrections on Wednesday, prior to the next weeks games that start on Thursday. If the NFL changes a stat on Thursday night, these stats should be the ones left up to the commissioner to change.

Will you guys consider processing the stat corrections on Wednesday prior to the next weeks games that start on Thursday?

The problem here is that the NFL does not make stat corrections that early.
