    He's a HB/WR, probably stick him at HB, though. 95 SPD/91 AGI/91 ACC, De'Anthony Thomas, but bigger <3

    how the hell are you guys whopping the CPU so bad with 3* teams..? i'm losing 23-0 to Iowa and it's not even half time. my QB is 1/6 to start the game and i can't get a run game going.

    i understand i'm gonna suck, but it makes no sense that you guys are DESTROYING teams... really means there's no hope for me. haha.

    1) Expect to get better. Everything - every incompletion, interception, missed tackle, poor playcall - happens for an understandable and fixable reason, and it seldom is "CPU screwed me over". How do you figure that out...

    2) Practice. You don't need to know your playbook inside and out (if you wanna win a Natty in this dynasty you may want to, though :p), but you should have at least 2 plays for every down+distance situation that you know how to progress through. Dumping it off to the HB underneath may very well be the best option on a given play, but a lot of players don't accept this.

    My personal practice schedule is to pick randoms plays (select button) from a formation against random plays from the defense from a matching formation (3WR -> Nickel, etc). Play until you score a TD, then move back 10 yards. Repeat until you get 2 100 yard TDs. This will take a while at first, but it will help your timing, and you won't see anything in a game for the first time.

    3) Understand numbers. Football is a numbers game - if you run into 2 box safeties and lose a yard, you deserve to. If you throw deep against 2 deep, you deserve to get picked off. If you get bowled over and keep 2 safeties high all game, you deserve to have 200 rush yards against you. Make minor adjustments based solely on numbers - your playcall does have a significant effect on what happens, but (especially in the run game) numbers around the football is generally more important.

    4) Value 1 vs 1. Football is typically 11 little 1-vs-1s - figure out who is most likely to win their matchup, and put the game on their shoulders. Evenly matched WRs will usually beat CBs. A safety can solo cover a TE, a LB usually can't - a TE will pancake a safety when blocking, but the LB will be more difficult to contain. If you have a LE that can beat the RT like a drum, then let him work and shift your defense to wherever (or more importantly, whomever) the offense can beat you (with).

    5) Understand that players beat scheme. I like to leave the QB on option plays and try to tackle him myself as a FS. If I get Braxton Miller in open space, he very well could shake me out of my jock despite the fact that the scheme was sound. You may want to press and load the box, but a WR with high release will put your CB to shame. I may rely on my TE to seal the edge on a stretch run, but if the LB he's against has good block shedding, the play will get blown up every time. This is why recruiting is so important. Everyone puts 11 players on the field, but great teams have multiple places they can go when they need a 1-vs-1 won, and move their great players around so that they can win their matchup.

    6) Ask questions. This relates to 1. If something specific is confusing you, there are plenty of resources in this dynasty and on this website to consult. Never use IDK as your answer, there is always a reason why what happened happened.
