    I wonder if all the correct draft picks made it in with the dolphins

    I don't think they did if you load this roster as a custom roster in franchise. But if you start and online franchise using the "real life roster" and choose week 1 as your start point they are correct.

    Except the cpu teams sign and cut guys before it even loads up.. so stupid man
    Start week 1: Picks are correct(assuming they are) but none of the rosters are correct, as cpu teams cut/trade/steal ps guys before you even get in the mode. Cant invite anyone pre creation to hold the rosters as they should, at least wait till week 1 advance for cpu moves
    Play now live: you have to play a 6minute quarter game then it sims to week 2.. so for anything more than 1 user.. no bueno. Also cpu makes moves to rosters
    Custom: can start with the 53 man roster, practice squad guys will be free agents going into preseason.. cpu also signs and cuts before you start
    This is super disappointing, if i want to start st week 1 the teams should be as they are for the first week at the very least.. after i advance fine its my own league then but i cant even start with picks correct or rosters without fixing it myself

    I haven’t gotten a chance to look yet but I’d give the guys a pass on this roster since they were evacuated. They did a good job getting one out.

    There is obviously things that are more important in life for sure.
    Just looking at Oakland’s roster, I’m pretty disappointed though. The guys who are released still being on the roster I don’t understand. I could deal with a few missing practice squad guys, but this isn’t even close to Oakland’s 53 man.
    The roster update includes over 1500 changes, on a short week, due to Hurricane Dorian.
    If you have complaints, just post what you'd like to see in the week 2 update. The more details, the better.
    MIAMI draft picks are NOT CORRECT.
    They are missing the first rounders (2020, 2021) that they got in the trade with the Texans.
    If you start a cloud franchise from the week 1 Regular Season starting point, the picks are correct however.
    But loading the custom roster into a franchise, they are not correct

    That's how it was all last year. They only ever applied the traded picks in the play now live roster.

    there is a workaround for the cpu signed guys before your cfm - make sure all pos are at the min like 2 dt or make every team full with players
    Two big free agents in the Pool are Eric Berry and Dez Bryant but when I start my franchise week 1 they are gone. I looked at every team and nobody signed them. Don't know if this is done on purpose.

    Cant do that with the "active" roster..
    I tweeted them, only can hope they do something..
    Its pretty disappointing. Seems so simple
    I just started up a “play now” franchise with the week 1 starting point. Noticing the same thing as everyone else, lots of cuts, signings, and disappearing players.
    Also, the practice squad is broken. I cannot sign anyone to my practice squad because there are no players who are practice squad eligible. There are plenty of free agents who should be eligible, but they aren’t, and my practice squad is not full.
    Playing as the Eagles, start off with 7 players on the practice squad. 22 year old rookie QB Easton Stick was cut from the Cardinals (as part of the initial loading cuts). Can’t sign him to my PS. 21 year old rookie UDFA center Nate Herbig who is already an Eagle, can’t send him down to the PS. I even tried to cut 24 year old QB Kyle Lauletta who was already on the Eagles practice squad. I can cut him, but can’t sign him back to the PS. When I go to “Practice Squad Eligible” in free agency, the list is empty despite there being dozens of 21/22 year old rookies in FA. Can someone else check their franchise to confirm? Again, this is in the week 1 starting point online CFM using “real-life NFL roster.”
    Gotta wait until a fix, because this is entirely broken. Refuse to begin a franchise without the ability to maneuver the practice squad.

    Are you on ps4 or xbox1? I go to online CFM/real life rosters/and the latest I can start is week 4 of the preseason.
    Sorry for the double post, but I have a different question. I’ve never done 32 team control before, so can someone who has tell me if this would work:
    I’m wondering if a workaround for all this would be to start an offline franchise at preseason week 1, import the regular season week 1 roster, do 32 team control as the owner of each team (except for the 1 team you actually want to be, which could be owner or coach), turn injuries to 0 (or turn them off, but I don’t remember if “off” would automatically eliminate preexisting injuries or not), turn all roster decisions for every team to manual, simulate to regular season week 1, and then retire all the owners for the 31 other teams you don’t want to be.
    Would that then relinquish control of those 31 teams back to the CPU? Is that how retiring works? Would there be any ill-effects to retiring all the owners? Wouldn’t that allow us to do an offline franchise with the roster still correct/intact at regular season week 1?

    PS4, I have the option to do preseason weeks 1-4 and regular season week 1.
    Dang, no fault of the EA team due to weather but waiting another week to start our franchise for a good roster might be a killer. I might have to go check to see if any good rosters already exist.

    That's simply untrue , there are about 3 or 4 guys who IRL are on IR or SUS included on it , but otherwise its accurate

    Practice squad mechanism working fine for me ( PS4 offline CFM started pS week one and summed to regular season)

    Right, the offline works, but the online with the regular season week 1 starting point does not have a functioning practice squad.

    Any retired players they remove from main menu rosters automatically reappear if you enter a ( offline) CFM any way ( including Luck) if they were in the original disc roster , this has been true since CFM was first introduced ( CCM ) , you will have to remove them ( edit to 40 year old punters for example ) manually

    There is a limit on the FA pool ( 640 total players , with individual limits at each position) any players above this limit are deleted, by age , so older FAs tend to disappear at the start of each regular season

    Really needs to be fixed. No excuse that older guys are deleted. They are signed mid season quite frequently.

    So what I'm using a custom roster and the draft picks aren't in order to what they are in real life?
    Is there a easy way to fix that?

    I suppose it will change next generation of consoles. None of the free agents should disappear. Vets and rooms should all be available when the regular season starts.

    Actually this happens far less often than you would imagine , of the ( 1000s) of in season transactions the vast majority involve younger players , especially those who were on 90 man rosters
    Of the approximately 400 FAs EA includes in its preseason rosters ( who aren't on a teams TC roster ) less than 50 ever play again the NFL
    Name recognition of a few bigger name signings probably accounts for this common misconception
    Having said that an increase to the FA pool size would be welcomed but as they say NFL stands for Not For Long

    I hear you but when Brandon Marshall dez Bryant and even guys like Jeremy kirley get signed in week whatever IRL they are not available in CFM. that’s not acceptable. Also the unknown players can be created and it’s not that deep. Creating dez Bryant is bothersome especially when he was available during the preseason.

    There are workarounds , but they are time consuming ( although if it's just a couple of players you are concerned with it doesn't take too long to change their age in order that they will be retained )
    Generally however the system works fairly well to replicate the turnover of players in the NFL and the constant quest for younger ( and less expensive ) options
    Personally I doubt either of those players will be signed IRL but I've been wrong plenty of times ( Adrian Peterson to name one significant error)

    My biggest complaint is their overalls are still pretty high especially this year with the low overalls. Teams with rookies or players who have big contracts at certain position will sign these guys relegating them to backups which slows their growtI and not to mention pretty unrealistic unless an injury happens or they regress.

    That in my opinion is a totally valid complaint, I'm guessing that EAs response would be that as they haven't played they have no evidence ( film/ stats or grades) which they can use to lower them ( as it is when players are injured) however I feel common sense should prevail here .... after all there is a reason these players aren't on teams
    I'm having trouble importing the roster update into franchise. It just keeps giving me old rosters on both importing and staring with NFL roster. Getting pretty frustrated.

    That's how it was all last year. They only ever applied the traded picks in the play now live roster.

    Correct, working as intended for sure.

    Then why does Miami have the pics they got in other trades?
    tried it on xbox with new rosters, offline cfm active roster. no practice squads, andrew luck is a fa .... complete waste of time trying to start a franchise, noone has a ps
    The issue with not being able to sign practice squad players in an online franchise starting week one does sort itself out in week two, but the guys you want will probably get picked up by the ai before you get a chance. Wanted to grab Tyree Jackson, but he was snapped up elsewhere.
    An annoyance, but not a game killer in my opinion.

    Oh! I didn’t realize that. I didn’t advance to week 2, that’s embarrassing. It still is annoying, but I thought it would stay that way throughout the entire CFM.
    Did they remove the long snappers? Luke Rhodes of the Colts isn't in the 53 or free agent pool, despite signing a long term contract earlier this year and I'm pretty sure he wasn't cut.
    Looking through the free agents, there are a lot of low OVR TEs I'm assuming are long snappers. The only one I know should be on a team is the Bill's Reid Ferguson, but LS isn't a position I'd be overly familiar with.
    Not a big deal in gameplay terms, but a lot of us do like to keep an LS for immersion.

    I agree.
    Maybe even have the ratings affect the snap on punts and field goals. If they could do it without it getting cheesy

    Offline CFM on PS4 practice squads work fine for me , remember PS don't exist until the regular season
    The Luck situation needs a workaround ( editing ) but that's always been the case when players retire or otherwise ( Ray Rice etc) for offline , removing him would take a patch

    Most teams have more than 53 active players as EA has no mechanic for players on a roster but not on IR ( ie PUP , SUS , NFI , DNR etc ) and a few players who are on IR aren't in the game ( pending injury settlement according to @equipment_guru )
    Thus prior to week one teams need to cut a few players , the LS are often the players cut as they have miserable ratings by and large
    They then fall into the FA pool , for which the TE pos has a hard limit of 25 players ( not inc. those on PS ) , and is heavily over populated
    Thus many LS disappear as the regular season starts , this has happened every year since CFM began

    You’re wrong my boy.
    1. Missing running back Damarea Crockett (ps)
    2. WR Rico Gafford is a FA (should be on the ps)
    3. WR Marcell Ateman is a FA (should be on the ps)
    4. TE Paul Butler is still on the team (should be a fa)
    5. RG Cameron Hunt is still on the team (should be a fa)
    6. Denzelle Good is a RT (going to play RG week 1)
    7. DT Eddie Vanderdoes is still on the team (should be a fa)
    8/9. CB Markinton Dorleant and DJ Killings should both not be on the team
    10. Missing preseason star Anthony Rush DT.
    That’s 10 things that are wrong and there are more. So how in the hell is this roster accurate?

    Practice squad players are not included in any teams roster , they are all ( if in the game at all ) in the FA pool , this has been necessary for EA since they introduced the play now live thing as a way to start a franchise
    As for your other points , here is your roster courtesy of Ourlads.com
    Note the players on IR / SUS , those players are part of the team not FAs
    EA currently has 59 active players on the raiders active roster , the correct 53 plus 4 injured players and 2 suspended
    Edit : the only way PS squad players could be included and play now live franchise entry to function would be by having practice squads in the main menu rosters ,which isn't currently the case
    Please don't call me "my boy" in any future correspondence... thankyou

    And if those players on reserve IR have been released and should be in the free agent pool like I said. Running back Doug Martin was IR released and he was correctly placed in the free agents like he is supposed to be.

    And if those players on reserve IR have been released and should be in the free agent pool like I said. Running back Doug Martin was IR released and he was correctly placed in the free agents like he is supposed to be.

    I was asking politely , but nice response , speaks volumes
    Yes Doug Martin was released from IR ( as EA has done ) the others though have not been , they remain on IR , as of the present time at least so they belong on the roster , although in my opinion they should have an injury designation
    Players waived/injured revert to that teams IR unless they are claimed on waivers by another team

    You're not breaking any rules, but it might be a matter of disrespect to him and he was just trying to give some reasoning behind some of your frustrations with the roster.

    If he takes something like that disrespectful then maybe he should reevaluate if a internet message board is appropriate for him to discuss football and video games.
    I listed just some of the ways the Raiders roster is messed up and he tells me I’m wrong and that the roster should have guys that were released with injury settlements. The roster is pretty bad. Instead of having guys that are still on the team on the practice squad, we have an inaccurate roster.
    I don’t do this for my health. Maybe some other Raider fans can chime if my guy keeps insisting I’m wrong.

    It wasn’t against the rules at first but by continuing to do it after he asked you not to is trolling.
    And trolling IS against the rules.

    I've told you why the PS guys aren't on your roster , that's a play now live/ franchise issue not any fault of the roster team ( it is an issue , but why be surprised by a CFM mechanic being simplistic , flawed and missing elements .... .... )
    The injured players have not been released as yet via settlement, as my screenshot demonstrated, they are still on the roster but on IR
    Incognito and Lawson are suspended, and the other 53 are as listed
    tree3five
    DE L. Hooks was released by Steelers during preseason and should not be on Steelers IR.

    Not according to Ourlads.com or Rostermon.com
    Again here I think this is people misreading waived/injured as simply waived
    Players who are waived /injured go to that teams IR unless claimed , they are not released
    Edit: they can of course be released subsequently via settlement
    So outside the Raiders roster, are the correct guys on IR? And missing players that made 53 man rosters now in the Week 1 roster update?
    Curious because KANE nailed the Week 1 rosters last year!

    I haven't found anybody on the active 53s missing , could have missed somebody though
    Not all IR players are designated as injured but I think this is by design as there is a limit in CFM on how many players can be on IR ( I think its 256 but that's not been substantiated ) and it's only week one so they need room to continue to implement future injury
    I'm sure there are errors and some inconsistencies ( Bryce Love is on IR but Danny johnson isn't when IRL both are on PUP ) but generally I'd say the roster team did a great job , a busy week , a short week ( holiday in USA I believe? ) and under less than ideal circumstances ( hurricane precautions in force )

    Awesome, thanks for the great info!
    Bryce Love on IR makes sense, since it sounds like he's out for 2019 season... So that one I can live with.
    So if I want to do an offline franchise with correct draft picks, I have to go through "play now" to set up a franchise? What about an online franchise? Do you have to go through play now too? thx!

    From what I heard if you start an online franchise and use real life rosters and choose week 1 of the regular season as your start point then the draft picks are correct.

    The issue with not being able to sign practice squad players in an online franchise starting week one does sort itself out in week two, but the guys you want will probably get picked up by the ai before you get a chance. Wanted to grab Tyree Jackson, but he was snapped up elsewhere.
    An annoyance, but not a game killer in my opinion.

    Found a workaround - sign whatever guy you want for your PS to the active roster and then move them to another position and then back again and you’ll be able to add them to your PS!

    Sorry for the double post, but I have a different question. I’ve never done 32 team control before, so can someone who has tell me if this would work:
    I’m wondering if a workaround for all this would be to start an offline franchise at preseason week 1, import the regular season week 1 roster, do 32 team control as the owner of each team (except for the 1 team you actually want to be, which could be owner or coach), turn injuries to 0 (or turn them off, but I don’t remember if “off” would automatically eliminate preexisting injuries or not), turn all roster decisions for every team to manual, simulate to regular season week 1, and then retire all the owners for the 31 other teams you don’t want to be.
    Would that then relinquish control of those 31 teams back to the CPU? Is that how retiring works? Would there be any ill-effects to retiring all the owners? Wouldn’t that allow us to do an offline franchise with the roster still correct/intact at regular season week 1?

    Can anyone with 32 team control experience weigh in on this? Somewhat important if this would be the only way to play offline CFM with intact rosters.

    This would I'd imagine achieve your purpose , ie starting the regular season with as accurate rosters as the CFM tools allow , however it seems a rather long winded approach
    I say this because as soon as you relinquish control of the other teams to the CPU , they will act according to the AI , and will make transactions , often the same ones you had originally prevented

    Seems like last year where any top FAs over age 30 disappear after you sim to the regular season. Only way I know to prevent it is to sign them and then edit their age to like 25 and then send them back to FA. It's a pain, but it works.
    I gave the play now option a try so I would have the updated draft picks. I've never used this feature before, so a couple things stood out.
    1. every week 1 game doesn't show up in play now. ???
    I guess you either keep changing your favorite team to get the game(s) you want or possibly create the game under custom game?
    2. continuing into franchise creates a cloud (online) franchise.
    I'm not necessarily against this, I've just always been an offline franchise player as I like to rebuild teams. I frequently change teams and save/create new franchises. Doesn't look like that is an option with an online franchise.
    So I guess if I want to do an offline franchise and have updated picks, I'd have to do a "multi-team control" or 32 team control franchise, move the picks, then decide if I want to keep the additional profiles or delete them.
    Man, 32 team control is such a pain in the arse to set up. #conundrum
    Hey sorry if this is a stupid question, haven't played Madden in a few years so I forgot some of the CFM workarounds.
    But is there a way to manually move the draft picks in a preexisting offline CFM? I foolishly started a new CFM today without knowing there was a new roster (they used to tell you when there was a new roster when you first started the game up, i guess they don't do that anymore?) and i don't really feel like going through and taking the time to navigate the slow menus to set up the franchise yet again (why cant you just import xp sliders?). I assume I can do 32-team control at this point and force trade draft picks, but if anyone can help me out I'd appreciate it.
    Thanks

    I believe you just have to start a CFM, pick your team and then pick "live rosters" instead of custom, then it will ask you which week you want to start in - choose week 1 and you'll have the correct draft picks and 53 man rosters but some of the older FA's like Dez will be gone.
    This is how it was last year as least. I was going to start mine last night but on Xbox the Week 1 option wasn't live yet.

    You can create a character in your franchise by taking control of both the raiders and patriots - have the raiders release AB - then retire your character - take control of the patriots and then sign him from free agency - then retire the patriot character - this will take you back to your original user controlled team

    I just traded him from the raiders to the pats for a late draft pick. Probably created a long term monster though. Hopefully i messed up the pats salary cap

    There is obviously things that are more important in life for sure.
    Just looking at Oakland’s roster, I’m pretty disappointed though. The guys who are released still being on the roster I don’t understand. I could deal with a few missing practice squad guys, but this isn’t even close to Oakland’s 53 man.

    All of those players reverted to IR we will not cut them till the team reaches and Injury settlement with them, if they dont we will be putting them on season ending IR.
    @KANE699 I don't know much about you but I've seen a few of your posts this year. Just wanted to say thanks for continuing to be active and providing insight both good and bad.

    So what are the main issues? I don't care about practice squad players, I don't care that rosters aren't 100% correct. I don't care about free agents getting snagged before I can sign them etc . Andrew Luck is gone after week 1? So if I start an online franchise week 1 my roster should be solid. Draft picks, Brown on Pats?

    No issues that I can see, I started with Raiders and I'm sure some players are missing.. maybe? but mostly looks fine to me. They also have 5 players on the PS as well.
    Brown is NOT on the Pats though, you would have to wait until the next roster update and do a live start in Week 2 for that change. I just traded him to the Pats for a 7th rounder.
    niftyjets
    What do you guys mean Andrew Luck is gone after week 1? If we start our franchise in the preseason and he's a free agent a team will sign him no?

    Correct.. if you use the live rosters, whenever you choose to start would be how the rosters are set. Before Week 1 and I believe Luck would be in FA or whatever. You would need to start in Week 1 for him to be gone.
    Live rosters are set each week for the corresponding NFL week you choose to start with.

    For those people who enter a CFM via play now live expecting to start a franchise with truly accurate NFL rosters , this has never worked as advertised largely for two reasons
    1 ) the roster you enter with isn't the one you end up playing with , any players removed since launch will automatically be added back . Obviously this has become blatant with Andrew Luck but has always been the case since CFM was first launched, these players can only be removed via patch not by roster update : solution edit these players yourself
    2) EA does not provide accurate roster management tools to adequately depict a true NFL roster , theres no PUP , NFI , SUS , DNR designations and IR doesn't work as it does in real life with no ability to reach injury settlements
    Practice Squad eligibility isn't accurately portrayed and PS are totally absent in the main menu / play now rosters
    Thus not only do users not have the tools they require to make rosters true to life but neither do the EA roster team ( Kane , Swami etc) so its certainly not their fault
    As the season progresses it does tend to work better ( as these issues become less of a problem ) but certainly at week one it's just poorly designed and implemented
    In short as of now the best way to get accurate rosters is still to start a 32 team control offline CFM and do the necessary work yourself

    I could have swore on 19 when I started a CFM players that werent FA in the main roster showed up in FA when I started a CFM.

    Ah, gotcha , no only players who were present on the original base roster ( the one on the disc ) will reappear , ( so Luck yes , Ajayi no ) it's usually mainly those players who publicly retire in TC and a few FAs to keep the rosters below 3000
    On a side note what's the news on Ajayi ? Last I heard he was healthy and had a try out IIRC ?

    Luck is not in the live rosters if you start online cfm in week 1.
    I don't see him anywhere. Plus, all the draft picks from trades are correct.
    For AB to the Patriots, you can manually do that or wait for the week 2 live roster update.

    Depends on the nature of your CFM , offline its sufficient to sign , edit age to say 20 , and release, , as cuts are done by age , or go through every FA and make everybody you don't want a 40 yo punter , which takes much longer but gives more controllable and accurate results
    Edit : see a previous post in this thread for the exact number of FAs retained at each position, it's done by age , retaining the youngest and not inclusive of players on PS
    Just for clarification, if i start an online CFM, Luck (as an example) is in the FA pool. Wouldn't this cause the CPU to sign him? Whats the procedure to prevent that?

    I don't do online so I'm not sure if this is even a problem there , but for any player you wish to remove , sign him to a team , edit his age to 40 and his position to punter ( and his contract to avoid penalties ) then release him , at the start of the regular season he will be gone

    If you start an online CFM with live rosters in Week 1, Luck is not in the game anymore, all trades/draft picks are correct. The only issue is some older FA's like Dez Bryant will no longer be in the game.

    So if I would sign the older guys to teams, dont make any changes to age, then release say Week 3 of preseason, then come Week 1 of regular season... The old guys like Dez, Berry that I cut would disappear?

    Yes the important time is the advance to regular season point , that's when you will lose any older FAs
    Before that no limits apply , after that point your roster is set for the season

    Very much depends on how much you value complete accuracy and how much time you are prepared to spend to achieve this
    For some play now live levels work fine , for those pendants like myself a 32 team offline CFM and hours of editing is more satisfying
