OFFENSE

  • Some of the biggest MYGUY scores come from workhorse running backs. If you’re looking for a reliable source of big scores, take the offense’s #1 back.
  • Every team has a go-to running back in goal line situations. Often, it’s a tough fullback and not the usual #1 runner. Do your homework on the teams you’re watching, and be ready to change to the tough guy at the goal line.
  • If you look at the player stats for a team, you can see how often a receiver is targeted with a pass. Receivers score 2 points/yd for receptions, while quarterback’s only get a quarter of that. Look at the last few games, if you notice a receiver on a team that has far more targets than any other, you know you’ve found the quarterback’s favorite — and that’ll be a good pick on offense, because receivers rarely lose score or break streaks.
  • When the offense gets into the red zone, consider taking the kicker. If they get stopped, you’ll get the field goal score, and if they get a touchdown, you’ll get the extra point score. Plus you’re in position for the kickoff score as well.
  • During the two-minute drill at the end of the half that’s typically a passing situation, so you could easily go with the quarterback…but there is a risk of incompletions.

 

DEFENSE

  • It can be worth taking the defense for the steady stream of tackle points. They’ll keep your streak alive, and it’s a safe pick (until the offense gets into the red zone, then change your pick quickly before you get penalized for giving up a touchdown or field goal).
  • If it’s 4th and long, quickly switch to the opposing defense and get points for stopping a drive.

 

TRICK PLAY

  • Don’t get fooled into thinking you can choose a player after he scores. The time window is often far too tight to pull it off. A better strategy is to switch to the roster page, ready to pick an offensive star, and watch the play develop. Once the ball is passed or handed off, choose that player right away – even before the play is over – so you can have him when the play ends and he scores.
