Offseason 39 Schedule & Remainder of M17

Congrats to Rain on his 18-14 EOTP Bowl 39 victory over Yao!

We’ll be following the below schedule for the offseason. I will be posting a calendar event in GroupMe for the draft (and every other event) — I expect everybody to RSVP to it if they plan to make the draft so we know who will and won’t be there.


We will be advancing past re-signs Sunday (6/4) night at 11:59 PM Eastern.


There are three advances in FA and they’re a little different from past Maddens. I have now seen plenty of high overall players signing during the first advance, so make sure to get bids in early this year.

All listed advances are within 15 minutes of the posted time to avoid blatant sniping.

  • First Advance: Monday (6/5) 8 PM Eastern
  • Second Advance: Mon. 10 PM Eastern
  • Third Advance: Mon. 11:59 PM Eastern


The NFL Draft will be held at 9:00 PM Eastern on Tuesday June 6th.

The first round I will be giving people 5 minutes per pick if they want it to negotiate trades. If you want to pick quicker feel free. Each round after that I will skip people who either A) did not show for their first round pick or B) did not RSVP for the draft and are not active in the chat at the time. Rounds 2-7 will proceed at normal pick clock.


We will be playing another two seasons in Madden 17, as I’m sure most of you have heard. Anybody who continues to play will get priority in the team draft leading up to Madden 18.

The following teams will be on AP, so feel free to play CPU instead of contacting:

  • Bengals (W4RMASTER91)
  • Cardinals (WARMAST3R91)
  • Colts (W4RM4STER91)
  • Dolphins (W4RM4ST3R91)
  • Giants (busturdust)
  • Patriots (war4one)
  • Seahawks (hofmeister929)
  • Texans (zoufan)

Several of these players will do minimal roster management to keep the rosters from falling into decay – several of the others I will be doing the same.

If you’re in the mood to play a user instead of CPU feel free to contact myself concerning Bengals, Cardinals, Colts, Dolphins or Patriots games as I’ll play if I’m available.


Team selection for Madden 18 will follow at a later time. We are currently deciding what players will be eligible to keep their teams for Madden 18.
