Is this cheese? I have an option play that I can regularly gain 1-4 yds with, ocasssionally busting for 10+yds, I like to run in a lot in order to get safe/small gains- most of the time I do not pitch and go inside with the QB. No opponent has called it cheese, but I have not used it much here at TF. I mostly use the play as a conservative run play to set up other runs or deep passes. I know that using a pass play over and over is cheese, but does that apply to a QB keeper option? It is stoppable for little or no gain, but only by opening up the passing lanes a bit, and one drawback is that the QB is more likely to fumble than other players, just wanted to get some opinions here.
