how come my entire defensive line has low fatigue all the time?

My defensive line has low fatigue all the time. All of my starting dt and ends are around 50% fatigue. What can I do to stop this?

Are you giving them anytime off during the week to recover?

DT/DE are typically the most frequently subbed positions on a team due to the very physically demanding nature of the positions combined with the gargantuan size of the guys. If you're not subbing them out regularly they're going to get dangerously fatigued.

Also if your Trainer does not have good fatigue recovery skills they will get tired around week 4 and unless you canel at least 2 practices a week they will never get their fatigue levels back to normal until the end of the season.

Player age and injury/fatigue levels also factor in. If your line has older players, check that. A lot of times players with a few years in have a lower max fatigue level, so for instance you could have a player who never gets above a 70 or so no matter what you do. It's part of the wear and tear feature. Players with a low stamina rating will also be very difficult to keep from getting fatigued.

Yeah, a 46 year old Ted Washington is bound to get tired a lot.

But seriously, if you sim, the DL usually has low fatigue. But if you play the games, rotate a lot and usually you can keep their fatigue in check. I also do this with HB's a lot, which is why I like the HB by committee when playing the games.

Re: how come my entire defensive line has low fatigue all the time?

A couple of ideas:
  1. Are your DT's and DE's subbing for themselves? What I mean is, is your starting RE the first substitute for your starting LE? This can sometimes happen if you set your depth chart automatically, and you don't have enough depth to compensate. It's not usually the case with DT's as a 3-4 or 4-3 alignment only call for 2 maximum players at a time. Solution: Remember to set your depth chart so that the 2nd string RE is either your ACTUAL 2nd string RE, or your 2nd string LE.
  2. Go to your play creator and edit some of your defensive plays, subbing a backup MLB or or OLB for a DE once in a while. Set these plays up so that you'd call them in shallow zone or QB spy type plays where you'd want a reduced pass rush but more team speed. The heavies get to take a few extra plays off, which will help.
