Is that if the ball then goes out of bounds? What should it be? You can't place it on the one yard line, the ball would've had to be fumbled out of bounds at the 1 for that to make sense. If the defense recovers it in the endzone and gives themselves up or are tackled in the endzone it's a touchback, right? If it's recovered by the offense it's 6 points. So it stands to reason the only right call is a touchback and change of possession. What other outcome should be true?


Not necessarily. Only the fumbling player can advance a fumble. If it goes through the end zone, I’d put it back where the fumble occurred and the offense keeps the ball.

Nah. You lost the ball and it went out of bounds only after it went through the endzone. Touchback makes more sense.
