Does anyone know of a play book that puts a receiver in the backfield?
I found this on a different site:
It seems you can only put a WR in the backfield out of a SG formation, although I do know you cant put a WR on your 3rd down RB position in the depth chart.
Im almost positive you can put a WR in the 3rd down rb spot on your depth chart
He doesn't come in much for me. I have that now. He's came in 1 time all year lol
You'll have to put him #1 or he wont come in unless AP is out. Does putting him in that spot allow for you to change him out in the HB position via R1 in the play calling menus?
Haven't tried that but I doubt it. I suppose I could put him in at 2nd string but then I won't be able to run Toby.
if you put Harvin as your 3rd RB you can still R1 sub him into the HB spot.
So it wouldn't be frowned upon to list Harvin as a RB? I know they do it in real life but didn't know if you could in leagues on here. I'd like to get him in the full house as they use him there in real life too.
3rd down RB normally only comes in on 3rd and long situations.
No it wouldn't but you have to find a play book that allows the receiver to play at HB because it won't let you select anything other than a RB to put in the depth chart.
I know lol but it still doesn't sub him in. I've literally seen it 1 team all year in the game.
Wow, that is crazy. Last release with Buffalo, I had Spiller as my primary 3rd down back. Anything 3rd and like 5 or 6 and longer, he was always in.
Could it have something to do with your autosubs? Isn't Harvin normally on field every play?
Yes that's probably the reason. I wouldn't want Harvin on 3rd down in the backfield every time. It would be too easy to key on him.
