    LovelyCalf22265I was a little sceptical as “Joe Burrows” was nowhere to be seen on the rosters for me but following this guide EXACTLY still got me both achievements. Thanks. 👍🏻

    I used the Cincinnati Bengals for this achievement, but you can do it with any team that has a good rookie. The easiest would be Cincinnati (Burrow) or Washington (Young).

    1. Go to franchise, active roster, pick Cincinnati, head coach, start regular season.
    2. Max out all of Joe Burrow's attributes to make him a 99 OVR.
    2.5. Also change his dev trait to X-Factor and when it is revealed you will unlock

    3. Sim to Super Bowl, as this is when yearly awards get announced.

    I got this first try using this method, but if you don't, just try again and it shouldn't take long.

    Please feel free to message or comment with any questions. Happy hunting!

    SmallGenie549Does this have to be offensive? I got ROTY with a defensive player and it didn't unlock.

    A WILD SHARKI just got offensive rookie of the year with a WR I drafted and it did not unlock for me either.

    EscapeTheRoachIt's better do this type of achievements with a downloaded custom roster, the one with a 99 OVR team so you can sim all season and unlock more achievements at the same time.
