I'm not sure what your question is asking, but if I'm understanding correctly, yes, if you are rushing, you get all the yards up until your fumble and the same goes for receiving yards.

No. After making a reception of a forward pass all yards, gained or lost, after the catch are considered receiving yards to the receiver and passing yards to the quarterback. EXAMPLE: The line of scrimmage is the offense's 10 yard line. The quarterback throws a forward pass that is completed at the offense's 15 yard line and the receiver runs to the offense's 30 yard line before being tackled. The receiver is credited with 20 receiving yards and the quarterback is credited with 20 passing yards. EXAMPLE 2: The line of scrimmage is the offense's 10 yard line. The quarterback throws a forward pass that is completed at the offense's 12 yard line and the receiver runs laterally/backwards to the offense's 8 yard line before being tackled. The receiver is credited with -2 receiving yards and the quarterback is credited with -2 passing yards.


Who gets the rushing yards on an option play?

That would depend on when the ball was lateralled to the running back. If the ball was lateralled behind the line of scrimmage, the running back would be credited with all of the yards. But if the ball was lateralled past the line of scrimmage, the quarterback would be credited with the number of yards he had gained before lateralling and the running back would be credited with the rest. Example: Ball is at the offense's 30 yard line. Offense runs an option play. The quarterback gets to the 32 yard line and laterals to the running back who gets knocked out of bounds at the 45. The play gained 15 yards. Since the quarterback lateralled the ball at the 32, and the original line of scrimmage was the 30, the quarterback would be credited with 2 yards rushing and the running back would be credited with 13 yards rushing.
