  • To add, remove, or change around players in your Offensive and defensive starting line ups you will need to first click on the “Team” button or after you turn your cards over to see new players it will automatically take you there.
  • Next you will need to look at the bottom left of the screen. Click on “Offense” or “Defense” to see your players that are in the game and those on the bench which will be along the bottom.
  • If you place your cursor over any player’s card you will see all of his stats at the bottom which may help you decide who to use.
  • When you are ready to move a player from the bench to the starting line up click on it and hold it down with your left mouse button. Drag the card and you will notice that all other cards fade out except the position of the player you have your cursor on. You can only replace lit up cards with the one you are holding. Simply place it over the person you want to bench and let go and you should have your new player in position and the other player on the bench.

  • Your team isn’t going to be very strong if you don’t have them practice and run drills.
  • This can be done for various amounts of time so you can set it for several hours and come back later to collect funds for finishing the practice sessions.
  • Click on “Practice” at the top of the game menu and you will be taken to the Practice Simulator area.
  • There are a few types of practice drills immediately available and more will unlock as you level up in the game.
  • Each session takes a certain amount of time and has a cost with the exception of the 40 yard dash which is free and only takes 5 minutes to complete.
  • Click on the practice drill of your choice and be sure to come back to the game to claim your points before they expire.
  • The amount of time it takes to complete a practice session is the amount of time you have to claim the practice points once it has completed.
  • NOTE – You can only collect the points of a practice session by starting another one so be sure to choose one that you are sure you can make it back to the game to collect. If they expire you lose your investment.
  • NOTE – Each time you play a game practice points are deducted from your overall total so be sure to always practice between games to keep your team strong.
