Always have first pick in draft
Start a franchise with the trade deadline off. Sim
or play the season to Week 17. Find out which team has the worst
record. Trade your first draft pick for their first pick and they
will always accept. Note: You can also do this with second through
seventh draft picks as well.
Fantasy Challenge mode
Make sure you have all the desired players from that
league on your team before the last game (championship). You will
not be able to get the players if you win the championship because
you will move on to the next league.
Staying under the salary cap
Use the following trick to keep a good player under
the salary cap for a long time. When signing players, sign them
for seven years. Give them nothing for a signing bonus. Give them
the minimum they will accept for the seven year contract. Your
player will then have a seven year contract with the same salary
for those seven years. The salary cap will go up every year but
their salary will remain the same, so you will actually have more
room under the cap for your other players over the following years.
When drafting a rookie, also sign him for seven years. Give him
$70,000 for bonus and give him the minimum for the contract. By
doing this, you will also save on the rookies for a long time.
Once in a while your players will holdout but it is worth it in
the long run. If you get fed up with your higly paid player or
get a better one cheaper, you will be charged nothing in penalty
the following season.
