That seems way too late. Not impressed with this...They used to drop the first day of the week. September 9th is already a day late, considering the season opens Thursday...

I was hoping to have it tomorrow. Disappointing for sure, but I guess it is just a delay in the start of our franchise until next week.

Well, I can see why people would want it before season actually officially starts. And they should...no reason to have it that delayed.

But in any case, I just DL a roster in the share vault, and it was pretty well updated. I just went with that. No sense waiting so long. Doesn't make a difference to me personally.

Things can still change before Thursday. The day after (or on) is a safe assumption that those would be the rosters for a few weeks.

Not really sure what you guys are complaining about. Last year the roster update arrived on Friday, the day after the Thursday night opener.

I am curious if the roster update will include all players on teams practice squads. So when we start our online league if we choose the 53 man roster to use, will the practice squads already be filled or no?

This always becomes such a delima for me. i'm through my preseason, and as i always plan on not starting over, Friday isn't to far off to wait, and then go forward with the regular season, however, Friday seems like forever away to basically not game at all, just in effort to get week 1 rosters....

They useally don't add all them but do add some ...so if they don't u would have to do it yourself before u start.

One thing I wish they did was update the trades for picks once u start a cfm if not u have take control of teams so they all have right picks in draft.

Just wish they would rate players to make them play a certain way.
ie Power Back rated to make them play like a power back etc... and not have speed/acceleration of a speed back.

Would really help the gameplay even more.

Maybe they're releasing two of the color rush uniforms (panthers,broncos) that will appear this Thursday??

Patriots and Eagles just had a trade with Eric Rowe and Josh kline.

If EA released rosters today to get them in before the season starts, then week 1 rosters wouldn't even be accurate anymore.

Im okay with their approach to releasing it Friday (as long as today's trade is reflected) lol

Really hoping they get on guys on IR that are on IR... I want to use rosters with injuries and then not looking back.

The cut off date to add players is weds ...so anything that happens up through today should reflect on the rosters.

The roster would be too incomplete if they released it now.

Several teams haven't set depth charts, announced injuries, made the correct roster moves after claiming recently released players on waivers. Plus they have to correct all the players who have changed numbers and create all the UDFA who made the team.

and its not as easy as it sounds, I checked community rosters and a lot of them are missing UDFA, have incorrect depth charts, have incorrect numbers, etc

Its hard to keep track of everything.

That doesn't make it right though. Some people,(not me) are so hardcore that they want to start simultaneously with the season. They should be afforded that right. I mean the rosters ARE final.

I think the Thursday night game isn't an official "Thursday night' game this week, it's more the Season Kickoff game. Meaning I don't think either team will be wearing Color Rush uni's. I am hoping to see the Color Rush uniforms immediately after the Thursday night games in the Friday updates.

And yes, to answer the OP, the updates have always been on Fridays and that works best to get the latest updates/transactions in.

Wait.

Ok, so maybe it would be better to get an update earlier. But give credit that the actual date has been released instead of waiting everyday for an update. This transparency is a good thing.
