Does the substitution really work this way? I was under the impression that the reason S and CB will pull from LB first...is only if there are no other "DB"s available at all.
The same scenario for RB (does not pull from FB per se....it just pulls all RBs before moving to the WRs). Same with DLs and LBs....
At some point in time in this engine, the Safety would come from your CB depth chart and it was always in one of the 1st slots where a CB wasn't playing. As I looked closer at a few of my depth charts, the Safety comes from your CB depth chart...but where he comes from can be different...lol.
Like on my Winona squad...my last listed CB was coming in at safety. At Capital...it's my 2nd to last.
So...not sure when they changed that...but they did. I know I had studied how the subs worked originally, but tbh I haven't looked in likely a year. Glad I looked because I have been playing my worst DB many times at Safety!
So...the Safety WILL come from your CB list...where on that list is a guess at best!
