I was just about to ask the same thing. Ea acts like we're playing the lottery for life changing money and not a football game on our phones. They've really made it a point to be as stingy as possible this season.
I've played literally thousands of toty events and only received about 20 emblems and an average of 1-3 badges for that. No players of course.
I'm imagining that as a case study to psychoanalyze some new kind of disorder in the DSM.

Journal Notes from Dr. HeyhartzwellpricewerDa, Esq.
Subject is presented a phone with the Madden Overdrive application and given a safe environment to complete daily tasks with certain insurmountable hurdles. Subject shows masochistic and obsessive qualities doing the same menial things over and over again with only a distant and unlikely prize dangling above.
The laborious tending to tasks in spite of the same results continues.
Subject shows an increasing disinterest in food, water, hygiene and continues to make strange hieroglyphical drawings on the walls of Hammers, Tongs, Anvils followed by many lines; the slash across them marking a set of 5 has been accounted for. Ugh, I will need to ask the janitors to paint over them when the study is completed.
The ultimate prize looms at large.
Day 10 part II ("A most peculiar nocturnal disturbance"):
During the night the subject was heard to be yelling and screaming in what was initially perceived as a call of distress.
Upon entering the patient's bedroom we were able to make out cries of what seemed like rapture:
"Yes, oh god yes, I fucking did it boys, 99 overall Chubb and a Gronk playing safety for some - oh god yes - get in my digital pants, get in my lineup - wait noooo not Antonio Brown flashing on the Overdrive main screen, N-T-NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
The patiently then suddenly sat up to an angle perpendicular to the bed mattress, heaving, perspiration beading up clearly on his brow.
"What a fucking crazy dream," the subject said looking bewildered at myself and the night staff. "Umm also, I think I'm gonna need some new bed-sheets, maybe had too many oysters or sometin last night if ya know what I mean... haha hey-ooo?! Okay, I'm umm sorry and I apologize profusely."
What a most peculiar nocturnal disturbance. The subject also was not given any oysters in the previous week and a half , what a strange reference.
It is clear now that we will have to administer a healthy dosage of Overdrive to see if any results vary and change in the coming week.
