Just ahead of the Thursday Night Football game, featuring the San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals, the official Madden NFL 20 roster update for week 9 is available now.

Of note, this is a midseason update, so you will see more changes than usual.

These weekly roster updates include changes to player ratings, based off of the previous week’s results, updated depth charts and injuries for all 32 teams. As always, player likeness updates only arrive in title updates, not roster updates.

  1. This is a joke. This game is bad enough with all these wonky player abilitys. The rating system makes no sense. How can the player leading the nfl in tackles be in the 70's and still keep getting down graded weekly. Or the player leading the league in touchdowns for the whole year still only be an 87. Trent Williams also gets worse by ending his holdout. lol. Figger it out, bud.
    Blake Martinez is a tackling machine and he started the year at an 83. He's dropped to a 73. Bryan Bulaga goes up 1 but loses 5 awareness. I don't understand.

    They made sure to drop both Snacks Harrison and Darius Slay but still have not given any love to Stafford even after how he's played so far this year. Also the Harrison downgrade I get he hasn't played that well but Slay has been hurt and hasn't really even played so how are they going to downgrade him.

    Whoever makes these ratings adjustments doesn't even watch football. Embarrassing. They can't employ one unbiased individual who has knowledge of football to adjust these ratings?
    i dont understand these adjustments.
    based on what does E. Thomas go down?
    same with B.Williams?
    TJ has been on IR for a while now and we where on a bye so how does he go down?
    Hell RG3 hasent played a snap since week 1 ......

    Hes garbage thats why
    The ratings system and methodology needs a complete overhaul. It seems like the Cowboys fan that runs it just reads box scores and watches highlights and goes with that. Just because a player had a "quiet" game doesn't mean he should lose rankings. Maybe the other team didn't throw at him, or his top WR was out, or they didn't run his direction, or he wasn't featured in the gameplay, etc. It's not just what shows up on Sportscenter.

    Players should not get a boost or drop to their rating based on one game. I'd say every 4 games would make more sense.
    That'll never happen again from a marketing perspective.
    That's how it used to be but they'll never go back to it

    I don't know if he is still a member on here or not but he seems like he is willing to listen to people's opinions and feelings on Twitter.
    Is there anyone with access to a devs ear or the roster "guru" that can find out why they can't/won't update draft picks for offline franchise via roster update(s) or, at the very least, title updates/patches?

    I can tell you this , they cant do it via roster updates because the game isnt built that way way , it would require an update ( patch ) to CFM , this is possible but would only ever be " correct " if you start a CFM using that specific weeks roster update , if you wish to use any other roster they would still be wrong .( ie Miami will have Tunsil AND the draft picks they acquired by trading him )
    Thus the draft picks "in situ" when you start a CFM are reflective of the start of the year , which makes sense if you start a CFM with the default roster
    You can use ' play now live ' and enter a CFM at the week of you're choice , with corresponding rosters and draft picks in place as per that week .
    All these options have pros and cons , and the choice is yours
    to be fair they need 32 rater people because to rate a team fairy it needs to take 3 hours a team at least
    1 looking up every player and his stats
    2 watching that team game
    3 scheme fit
    4 reading everything online
    its a very hard job

    Using "active roster" in an offline franchise gives you updated rosters/player movement, just not draft picks. I'm curious why they can't update the draft picks too. If It's simply not possible due to the horrid rigidity of cfm, then at the very least, why cant they include it as part of title updates/patches?
    And, yes, I'm aware cloud franchise has updated draft picks. I don't want to play a cloud franchise. I want to play an offline franchise with updated draft picks, without having to go through the asinine process of moving the picks manually. That shouldn't be too much to ask in 2019.

    As previously stated the draft picks are a part of CFM , they cannot be updated in a roster update , as the rosters do not include them
    They can be updated via patch but it really doesnt make sense to do so . If you're starting a CFM at the start of the season , the logical thing is to use the roster from then , with draft picks in place as per that time .if you choose to do otherwise ( as we both do ) it makes sense to expect to have to do some things yourself
    Whilst it's possible to start a CFM using the rosters from any week , the draft pick situation is not flexible , in the same way , you can only use the latest update ( as with most aspects of the game ) , thus leaving them as they were IS the most logical thing to do .if they did update them to how they are now they would still be wrong for anybody wanting to start a CFM with default rosters or custom rosters from any earlier weeks
    They provide the facility via play now live to get updated picks for those people that choose that path
    So you can start a CFM at week one with everything correct , or at any week with everything correct , but if you choose to "mix and match " you will need to do some editing yourself

    Yea, I'm well aware of the various play options and workarounds. And "logic"/"accuracy" is the least of my concerns (game is full of logic and accuracy issues). That's not what I'm asking.
    I'm asking WHY they can't/won't update the draft picks either via roster update or title update/patch for offline franchise? That's it. I want to know the WHY.
    Note: I'm pretty sure the tunsil trade, if not 1 or two others (clowney?), occurred prior to week 1. If so, then week 1 rosters/picks were not accurate.
    To each their own.

    The *why* for roster updates is they CANNOT , draft picks aren't a part of the roster files they are a facet of CFM
    The *why* for title updates is "It doesnt make sense" for the bigger picture ie the majority of people who play CFM not named you , as most people use default rosters or some variation of these ( TFG etc)
    It seems at this point you want these things in place for your particular needs , regardless of whether this makes sense or inconveniences others .
    That somehow they should do things to spare you in particular from having to do anything for yourself even if by doing so they do things which dont make sense to others
    You could have re-attributed the draft picks to your specific requirements in the time taken to moan about this tbh
    Does anyone know when the last draft picks traded showed up in offline franchise? Like, what would be the cutoff date if I wanted to go through and manually redo the trades to get the picks right using Spotrac?

    Not sure of the exact calendar date but would be July , corresponding with the default ( disc ) rosters

    Blake Martinez is one of the worst starting LB’s in the NFL. Tackle stats for a LB most often are more bad than good. EX: he is HORRENDOUS in coverage and often gives up a wide open receiver but then tackles them once they make the catch for an 8 yard gain.
    This is one of those examples of looking at stats on paper and thinking it automatically transfers to a high overall and that just isn’t the case.
