I introduce you to Eric Cox: http://mfn2.myfootballnow.com/player/761
He is currently the #2 WR on my depth chart, and is having a solid year after 10 games: 32 catches for 561 and 2 TDs, with only one drop (number of targets would be a cool stat to have, BTW). Not spectacular, but solid.
But if you happen to take a glance at his Defense tab, you'll notice something interesting: he sees quite a bit of play on the other side of the ball. Not just this year, but over his career.
Now I can only speak to this year, because this is the first time I've noticed his name coming up on the defensive side of the ball (the INT really made me double take). My secondary isn't particularly deep, with only a couple of serious injuries. Mister Cox is nowhere in the secondary depth chart, but lo and behold, his presence is felt.
I told that story to ask this question: Is the game engine purposely spitting out the rare CAPABLE two-way player like the NFL has produced only a few times in its history, or is this just a matter of the RNG falling JUST right to make him capable of playing both sides of the ball?
