Best way to force fumbles?

I'm currently in week 8 of my online dynasty and only as a team have 2 forced fumbles. I noticed some other people in my dynasty have 15 or more for the season. I got the 2 I have last game, but I wasn't doing anything special. Whats the best way to FF. Hit stick or strip? I usually tackle with the X button to ensure they go down, but the takeaways help.

Re: Best way to force fumbles?

depends on where you approach the ball carrier. from the side and/or behind, you can use the strip ball("A" on 360). if your in front, you could use the hit stick. for me using the low hit stick(down on the right thumb stick) seems to cause more fumbles than the high hit. but with both, you risk missing the tackle and the ball carrier getting a big gain and/or a TD.

I don't even tackle with X. I just run into the ballcarrier to initiate the tackle, tackling with X causes too many 'bounce off' broken tackles.

With impact players, I'd say hit stick is better, though tougher to execute. If I really need a FF I press A every tackle, ESPECIALLY on QB scrambles. If you see that QB out there, go for the FF every single time, either hit stick or A. I think hit stick works better for QB because there is no risk of a 15 yard facemask.
