Hey man, under settings there is a gameplay sliders that you can adjust how frequent the fumbles are. If you have it set at around 20, it should be more realistic for an NFL game. The default setting is at 50, which led to Bobby Wagner having a game breaking 80 FF in one season for me.

 

Just change the slider man.

Not sure what has happened to the game but I have had over 20 fumbles in the last 4 games played. Its like the old school Gold Fumbilitis card is active. CPU players on defense hit stick almost every single tackle and my RB just coughs it up.

We're seeing some feedback around fumble frequency like this post here as well. We'll make sure the team hears your feedback, but as @bobbymono mentioned there's a slider. For non franchise modes be sure to utilize the "protect the ball" button.

Madden 20 FUMBLING

★★ Newbie

I turned down Fumbling Sliders to 0 for both CPU & Player, in my first game with those sliders I fumbled 5+ times. I’m officially done playing madden for the year. I thought they might’ve improved this year but of course a new bug has to pop up.

I signed in for the first time to say that while playing draft champions my 87 OVR Todd Gurley fumbled back to back drives while I was holding protect the ball. It may actually not be working as intended... Or if it is working as intended the intentions are bad.

 Nothing quite like watching Saquon Barkley drop more fumbles in one game than he has HIS ENTIRE CAREER.

 

Is a good game.

The team has a series of planned updates that will bring more exact situational tuning. Please continue to give us examples (video clips are always super helpful) so where you're seeing fumbles in situations you really shouldn't. 

From the latest title update:

 

Tuning & Balancing:

Tuning around fumble rates and stiff-arm strength

DEV NOTE: We have heard our players’ voices relative to the frequency of fumbles and the power of the stiff-arm move. While this tuning will decrease some of the frustrations around fumbles and stiff arms globally, this is just the first step in a series of planned updates that will bring more exact situational tuning.

One important note regarding fumbles: the fumble rate for QB’s is higher intentionally, especially on Competitive game-style, in order to provide balance for scrambling QB’s.

You can avoid fumbling with your QB by using the QB Slide mechanics: either tap the dive button while NOT holding down the Acceleration burst button; or hold both Acceleration Burst AND the Precision Modifier and tap the dive button to slide with your QB. A similarly useful counter to the stiff-arm move is the cut stick tackle, which can be activated by flicking down on the tackle stick.
