  1. Yeah, it’s there but somethings seriously messed up. All the guys who are on the NFL practice squads are straight missing from the roster. For example the only Jets PS squad guy available is Josh Johnson who is not on the PS squad in game because he’s a vet.

    Ive read that a guy like Stephon Tuitt is injured for like 40 some weeks but irl he’s eligible to come back after Week 3.
    Really wish we could have manual injuries like on The Show.

    This happened last year too or the year before that, all practice squad players were gone and he had to fix it.

    Yeah, they are really struggling. At this point it’s epidemic and something needs to change.
    While I appreciate the roster update, you are much better off finding a custom roster. If you're on XSX, I *HIGHLY* recommend xApAthyx13's roster. He just updated it again post Bradley Roby trade from Texans to the Saints.
    You can find his thread in the OS rosters forum.
    So today I learned that starting a multiplayer cloud Franchise with the Week 1 start point is a pain in the tuches.
    Creating a cloud league with a start point in the regular season fires off the CPU 53-man roster management logic. Once this happens, the CPU aggressively files players away to Injured Reserve, even if they only have three or four week injuries. This is performed for every team in the league before any user assumes control, including the team that the league owner selects during initial setup.
    The CPU also gets a major and aggressive head-start on signing free agents, which is a major problem if you're trying to set up a multiplayer league where no one starts off with an advantage.
    I have to assume that creating a Franchise from a Play Now Live game has the same issues, but I admit I have not tried that.
    Until EA gives us the ability to lock rosters during the week of league creation to make sure these AI routines don't fire off during the first week of the league, I recommend using a custom roster and import it into Franchise with a preseason start point if you want to start a cloud league with an up-to-date roster. Which means you'll have to replicate a couple draft pick trades, but that's the best we can do for now.
    Guys check out my free agents list vanishing thread that nobody believed me about except a few people
    they simply removed the PS guys because vets were vanishing in the free agents list during a franchise because of their stupid free agents limit number (which is a joke in 2021) by removing the PS guys the free agents won't vanish now as there won't be too many Free agents in there to 'vanish' when the regular season starts.

    My Theory. seeing as it happened last year I think this is why
    there is a free agents limit so players vanish when you start the regular season randomly.
    So deleting PS guys stops this.
    they need another week to remove some useless free agents.. then they will at the PS guys back. then the free agents list won't be full and have players vanishing when week 1 of the season starts.

    That’s not the case. They don’t do it in game. They just likely put the wrong code on the guy in their database.

    No this happens in game too — at least the deletion of free agents. There is a hard limit to total players.

    Let's face is there is only 1 reason to delete players off the roster it's because they have a limit of free agents (should not happen on ps5 in 2021) when the rosters first came out having 75 people on a roster was fine because the game can just make them vanish.
    but as soon as we talk 53 man rosters the free agents list blows up. they remove players because of this. there is no other reason to do it.
    Crazy how Washington the backup FS who by the way is a speed demon from TCU is an 85 speed. The Ravens online is trash despite being top 5 running team!!!

    Yes play now live Week 1 has the CPU release players/sign players/etc.. they always release DT Sheldon Richardson from the Vikings and typically the Jaguars sign him. (among others)

    ArDarius Washington ran 4.61 and 4.63 forty times at his pro day.
    According to MockDraftable, the average of his times (4.62) an 18th percentile measurement compared to all other defensive back prospects to enter the NFL since 1999.
    Not exactly a speed demon.
    Till the put practice squad players back, I guess it’s just play now for me. What’s the use of having practice squads if they’re gonna take all the players out.

    They have CJ Beathard with an 81 THP? And is 58 OVR?
    He beat out Minshew (69 OVR) for the backup job in large part because he has a much better arm strength.
    If Minshew is an 85 THP, he should be at 88.
    Also, why is the Jaguars playback geared for a Scrambling QB?

    Your theory would be fine if the week 1 live roster didn’t have all the players, all the ps guys and all the FAs when you start an online franchise during week 1 after all the roster cuts. It’s just that they didn’t change the code for the PS guys correctly when they did the roster download.
    This is an error in the roster, not the same issue you’re talking about.
    So they have David Baktihari with a 46 week injury, WTF!! I wont be able to use him at all.
    He’s just on PUP list, god damnit.

    Regardless, there has to be a time to delete them, and for some strange reason they do it when you advance to Week 1. We know from modding the PC that there DEFINITELY is a total player limit. I can’t remember if the FA roster has an additional limit other than Allowed Total - Signed Players. But regardless, they absolutely delete players at the switch to Week 1.

    They’ve had Beathard’s arm strength wrong for years. He has a stronger arm than Garoppolo. His problem in San Francisco 49ers was his eyes and pedestrian accuracy, NOT arm strength.
    Where is te Parker hesse on Atlanta, he is on main roster but not in game
    Also olb leighton McCarthy not on Tampa but made roster
    Dt David bada Washington is missing

    But then he doesn’t miss anytime. I really just wish we could get manual injuries. That and the new IR rules and so many issues would be resolved.

    Yeah but we don’t…..so I gave him a potential solution. Either he wants him on the field or out for the year.
    The mechanics are not changing for this years game magically.
    Hopefully they add manual injuries for 23 and get the rules right, expand the player pool, and get PS limits and eligibility right.
    Still plenty of things they can work on.

    Yeah, but couldn't EA just put him with a 6-8 week injury and allow you guys to take him off the I.R. at least at some point during your first year? I don't think that's asking a whole lot.
    The free agent limit used to be around 400 but that was on m18 i believe it was. I thought it went up on m20.
    I have some data around here about it from a fellow OS guy ill see if I can locate it.

    It’s not laziness. In fact it’s quite the opposite. They are trying to do too much, catering to too many play styles, with either not enough people (they are all working 70 hour weeks), or too many subgroups working on too many things, screwing thing up by causing bugs in each other’s piece of the game.

    Yeah agree......EA could do a lot of things. But at some point....people want to play their game. So again.....if you want to get going and not rely on a fix to a player out of 1000’s on the roster...turn off preexisting injuries and start your franchise.
    Yep.. roster share is a fantastic thing (why NHL doesn't have this I have no idea) just load up a downloaded roster and start in the preseason. I always turn off preexisting injuries anyway.
    After i saw they had come back out, i went and fired up my game. Tried to update, but it stated that i already had the latest set. It was dated today's date, and named official. I also had one dated yesterday, named mut.
    I suppose I somehow have the newest version?

    So much this. If you really wanted to have a CFM that follows real life, and someone gets injured in week 8 and is out for the rest of the season but played the first 7 weeks. You could have him play the first 7 weeks then assign a season ending injury to him if you wanted to keep it realistic.
    Also would help when the NFL levels suspensions to players like for example La'El Collins today. You could have him play week one but give him an injury for the next five games.

    It’s the same way they treated rosters last year during the COVID-19 season. Players who opted out of playing were given season ending injuries. They could’ve totally taken them out of the game completely, but they didn’t. At least the players in question are still in the game and in a roster. I know EA has its faults and every year we really dig in to finding and exposing these faults. There’s things that I don’t like about the game too don’t get me wrong. But I’ve finally become tired of trashing their yearly release and now I accept it for what it is. Until there’s solid competition for EA with another NFL Simulation game, we’re gonna get what they publish….

    Understood. Their opening day roster is bugged. For whatever reason, Madden has never had a PUP list like teams to do IRL. Until they implement something like this into the franchise mode, we’ll have to hope that they fix the roster and the injury length of particular players.

    Am I doing something wrong? I can’t seem to get a cfm started with the correct preseason rosters. Every time I start it gives me the 53 rosters. But when I choose preseason roster it gives me the roster from launch not the updated roster. Is this not possible? My goal is to start preseason with 3-4 QBs so Love/Bortles/Benkhert all are on roster.

    You need to load the rosters you want to use from the main screen menu. I believe the Week 1 is titled "Official". Then when you start your franchise choose current rosters.
    I have being doing that already. The problem is I want to start my franchise with more than just 56 players on the roster. When I load these rosters and start a franchise in preseason I only have 2 QBs (Rodgers/Love)
    My question is how are you supposed to get accurate practice squad members when all the players from my practice squad begin the preseason as free agents?
    Shouldn’t I start the preseason with Benkhert at QB and WR like St. Brown, Begelton, Winfree? These are all Packers practice squad members that were in the roster all preseason but they are free agents in this update. Is that the way it’s supposed to be?

    Unfortunately I do not think it’s possible to get 100% accurate practice squad rosters since the eligibility rules are not accurate. For instance, Nate Sudfelt is on the 49ers practice squad but Maddeen will not let me sign in as a deems him ineligible.

    You are correct, I will get them as close as the games allows last night. I spent about an hour last night adding each player back into the rosters and am ready to start preseason football today
