    Low QB completion % in first weeks of a season

    FB Mogul 2020 v17.0.2 on Fan setting with fictional players.

    QB completion percent is too low in the initial weeks of a season.

    In commissioner mode I set a QB to 99 for Accuracy, Distance, Control, Red Zone and Mobility.
    I also set Hands, Speed, Power, Quickness and Vision each to 99.
    Turned injuries off so there was no substitution due to injury.

    Result: completion % in 8 runs of week 1: 28, 56, 52, 56, 47, 37, 38, 42.

    For a QB with a 99 rating in accuracy one would expect at least 70% completions?
    By the way the defensive team was B rated for these runs. So not a great defense.

    This result has been consistent across many simulations which is why I finally decided to make the QB all 99s. The low % completion has to be in the code and not a anomalous random factor.

    How good are the receivers?

    In the 80s overall and peak. If it was the receivers they would not magically get better from week 4 on. Also, this happens for all teams. There will occasionally be a QB who completes 65% of his passes in the first week but as a whole the average is around 40%.

    In response to your inquiry, I set the top 3 TEs and 4 WRs to all 99s. Results from replaying week 1:
    43.9, 58.6, 59.4, 41.7, 48.8, 58.5, 60.6, 52.6, 43.2, 58.6

    Better but that is with 7 all-star receivers and is still significantly below the completion % one would expect with a superstar QB and SEVEN superstar receivers...

    The team being played was rated 29th with a C rating for defense.
