Slot CB covers TE instead of WR on compressed sets

Offense comes out in tight formation, 2 Wrs on left, a TE and WR on the right. I come out in 2-4-5 nickel man. My slot CB is on the TE on right side while a LB covers the slot WR. No adjustment: man/base align, auto-flip off, helps this. This is in an online franchise with rules so I can't just put a safety in for the LB. And I don't want to have to call dime or dollar defense. I just want to know why this is and how to fix it if possible.
this is still possible using adjustments, isn't it? you can assign any DB to a specific WR/TE/HB (if lined up on the same side of the field). but I agree, it would be better, if the assignment could be adjusted more easily (or pre-game? something like user-specific audibles, coverages etc.) since doing manual adjustments requires some time and is vulnerable to audibles/formation changes of the offense...
I thought you could only match up by speed, height, overall, etc etc. I don't think you can set it up so that Richard Sherman will always cover the slot receiver or always cover DK Metcalf unless the above criteria is met.
I could very well been playing this game wrong.
