DEV NOTE: Today’s Superstar X-Factor re-shuffle is the last X-Factor update of this season and reflects player performance through the end of the NFL regular season. This will apply to Front End rosters for Online head-to-head games, exhibition and new Franchise leagues created with the ‘Custom Roster’ option.
The re-shuffle will NOT impact existing Franchise leagues, as those leagues are already in progress with their own performance progression/regression and will not apply to new Franchise leagues created with the ‘Pre-Season Roster’ option.
