Dynamic Fantasy Points - calculation problem?

So I took for granted that the Dynamic Fantasy points would just be a player's point total utilizing the entered scoring data. In checking the calculations, though, things don't seem to add up - am I missing something?

I'll use Arian Foster an example to illustrate, using Sept 1 KUBIAK.

Scoring settings: 1 point for every 10 rush/rec yards; 6 pts per TD; -2 per fumble, no PPR. Turned off playoff adjustment.

I won't post Foster's projections (per board rules), but KUBIAK lists him at "X Dynamic Fantasy Points;" however, when I add the numbers up ((rush yards + rec yards)/10) + (TDs*6) - (fumbles*2)), the number I get is 25.7 fantasy points higher than the given "X" Dynamic Fantasy points above(assuming all of his fumbles are lost). Other players have similar differences.

(note: individuals get points for Special Teams TDs under my settings, but can't imageine that is the issue for Foster - he won't be returning kicks).

Does Dynamic Fantasy Points mean something other than what I think it means, or is my spreadsheet calculating incorrectly?

I may be missing something simple, apologies in advance if I am.

Check your "Risk Assessment" option (see instructions tab).

Ah ok, I thought leaving risk "on" simply would show the risk color rankings, rather than adjust the scoring.

I'll work on my critical reading - thanks for the response!
