Does anyone know what are the defensive and offensive environments that would cause forced fumbles?  My team in Wilkinson has forced a lot of fumble and has beaten some more talented teams because of it.  It occurred that this is something I may need to recruit for.

I can guess, but I'm hoping someone might have some actual insight into the (current) engine.

I've noticed this occurs from my best Tacklers with the highest strength. But I haven't tracked any data to support this so it's just a hypothesis.

no clue....never really tracked it or looked at it.  But you have to look at the other side of the football also.....facing a wishbone is gonna give you more fumbles than if facing a shotgun (theoretically)

It's interesting.  In theory, I would say a defender with superior STR and TAK should force fumbles, and on the other side of the ball, a ball carrier with bad HAN ratings could be stripped.  As to the impact, I did a quick sort in my D1aa world on which teams force fumbles, and the top teams that do are also the top teams overall.  Working with a short field will for sure help you win ball games.
