When in franchise mode press L1 and you will have all teams selected amd just sim the fantesy draft (have to have the fantasy draft and salary cap turned off) you can pick your team by pressing R1 and just trade every body to that team. Does get annoying an the off-season though.
When you trade your #1 pick to the worst team in the league, you can also ask for their #2 & #3 picks. They almost always go for it. Bundle together some of your lower picks, and put them on the trade block. Keep doing this until you can make an offer for another #1 pick, and repeat.
It is very easy to acquire the #1 & #2 picks in the the first couple of rounds.
Throw in a highly rated player or two you are pretty sure will retire at the end of the season, and you can end up with 4 or 5 first round picks.
When you're playing against the CPU and they want to kneel the ball all you have to do is do a FG Block when every single player is rushing the ball. They will audible the play to either a pass or rush. It's best used when you're down in the 4th and they want to kneel and run the clock. You would want the clock to be stopped be4 doing this.
