Ok first before you start the franchise trade all the good players to your team and make no trade deadline then wait until week 16 is over then trade your draft pick with theres they always accept it so you can go undefeated and have a good rookie to fill needed roster space and with training camp he could be a starter
First create a superstar. Once you get to the page where you assign attributes,make your awareness rating at 0. Then you will hav more points to spend on other attributes. But heres the catch, all you have to do is go to the iq test and fail it (wait for time to run out) and you will recieve a PDA message saying you did poorly. That makes your awareness rating at a 99! So then you will be one of the best players in the entire league without ever playing a down. This cheat works especially well for quarterbacks because with them you can assign a 99 rating to everything except one (agility or break tackle would have to be a 95).
First, go to view roster. Go to the quarterback page and pick a sucky rookie quarterback. Click on him and select attributes. Raise the attributes you want him to have(preferably throw power, accuracy, and awareness) then click triangle When you go back if the guys overall is 99, then he will be above peyton manning. Do the same for all the positions.
P.s.:make sure the salary is low
P.s.s.:make sure NOT to pick the same players from the same team
Go to create a team and go to pick players or whatever they call it and choose all the good player. You will have alot of money left over, so you could a good player like champ bailey or ladainian tomlinson
Then finish creating you're team(uniform,stadium,logo,etc) and start a franchise
F done rightly, you should hav good players and high cap room
