    Does anyone play these? Is there any way to watch? Is there an edge? I’ve been playing the last couple of days and have min cashed for 25 cents.

    Nice, I had 100% JuJu captain and got nothing because the RBs sucked.

    Funniest moment yesterday was a safety on a completed forward pass which I don’t think I’ve ever seen in real NFL.

    I watch the DK Madden sims on the app. I hear announcers saying hit the like button, etc., so I think they are on YouTube somewhere. Does any know where I can find them? I could watch them on my TV if they are on YouTube. I searched Pat Mayo (he announced a game I was watching) but didn’t see anything. Thanks.

    In three SF Madden sims, Mostert and Breida have ZERO touches. Every halfback touch has gone to Coleman. Bizarre.

  • Smallchimp

    Seems kinda funky that in the 9 simulations I ran, MVS doesn’t get a single catch, but in the official game he does awesome. Not sure why the depth charts get edited on DK, seems like an unnecessary “gotcha”

  • darickc

    I’m playing because they’re free and there’s nothing else to do. So far I’ve won .25 cents in one and $4.63 in another

  • ifthethunder

    For some reason, Madden loves Dwayne Haskins Jr. I can’t tell you why, but “it is what it is.”

    About TE not getting targeted. I play almost all these Sims. The TE seems to definitely be targeted a lot as of the end of May

    Only today and Monday because of Memorial day I believe. Should be back to 6 tomorrow, if I heard correct yesterday.

    So in today’s NBA sim Orl @ Pho we’re supposed to believe that Aaron Gordon scores just 2 pts out of Orlando’s 133 total :^ /

    The sims have nothing to do with reality. They are based on player ratings for a range of characteristics and the A.I. running the game based on same.

    Example: CLE134 @ MIA158

    Is this possible in real life? Ha. Ha. Ha. (But congrats to edalton26, nevertheless.)

    That is the way football is done with Madden. But I thought Bball was different? Where they(a computer program) randomly choose one of the players games during the year, or did they change that?

  • clrockny24

    I have a buddy from twitter who has won almost $300 from the madden games. One takedown from a giants-bear game for $250, another $22, and many 25-50 cent victories. I’ve probably won two bucks total, if that.

    I think the key build is to go with a 2nd or 3rd wr as captain. Trey quinn for the redskins, Mike williams for the chargers, maybe zay jones on the raiders, guys like that. Rarely pay for RB’s. Try to fit both qb’s in at flex. Of course, I’ve barely won anything, so I don’t know.

    So are these true to life, or completely random?

  • JH822547

    From what I understand even if the match is Kansas City vs Washington Redskins both teams have an equal chance of winning the match so in that sense it’s random. However certain players who are more likely to score better than others based on their perceived real world ability.

    It was fun for a while but it got pretty old after a few weeks and I’ve started reading books and stuff. Fair play to DK for persevering with it for so long, they could have simulated an entire season and playoffs by now.

  • jayzee666

    I find that these SIMs (FD and DK) are reallly accurate!! They must have programmed the REAPER effect into the software!!
    I cause the same 50-60% snowflake rate in these SIMs as I do in real life!!

    The Redskins can only dream of the Dwayne Haskins who plays in the sims, as opposed to the real life one they drafted

    They could not be anymore fabricated..I happened to be tuning in to one right now out of boredom and Frank Gore just went 75 yards for a TD a RB2 and the last play K. Johnson went 55 yards on a screen play for Detroit. LOL..

    Ha! Meanwhile, the vaunted Miami defense held Damien Williams of KC to 78 yards, no catches or TD. And Miles Sanders got a bit less. It’s almost like the sim said to itself, “Everybody plays these guys because they crush it every game. So today we’ll give it to Frank Gore and Kerryon Johnson. And Reuben Foster!!”

    I can’t complain, though. A free 25 cents for me from this one.
