Franchise Starting Points

Franchise Starting Points are the various points from where you can start your game. Like if a transfer was made in a particular week, then you can actually choose to start playing before the transfer was made or after the transfer was made with the help of starting points. These starting points are very important because they bring authenticity to the game and can entertain lots of NFL die-hard fans by letting them create their own story.

Customisable Draft Board

Customisable Draft Board was according to EA, the top community request. Now you can arrange players by dragging and dropping in the draft board, like the way you do in changing your lineup.

Franchise Commentary

Commentaries are something that can actually boost your adrenaline rush and grant you a more immensive gaming experience. They intensify your gameplay to a very large extent.

This year EA has kept this in mind and has presented Brandon Gaudin and Charles Davis to help you with the intensifying act. They are going to highlight various things including previous match results, weekly award winners, and more. They also help you to stay immersed with the story by updating you with what’s going on in the league.
