Total fumbles

Fum is a football abbreviation that refers to the total number of fumbles by a player or team. It is used as a statistic in football and counts as negative points in fantasy football.

A fumble is when a player has possession of the ball but loses control before he is considered down, which would end the play. A fumble may be recovered by the team that fumbled it but if it is recovered by the defense it is considered a turnover (FR). The fum abbreviation is similar to the int abbreviation, which refers to a turnover by way of a pass that is caught by the defense.


"The defense has been stellar in forcing 5 fum in 2 games."
