The much anticipated Madden 16 update is now available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 that included various improvements and fixes to Madden 16 gameplay, CFM, Madden Ultimate Team, and more. You will not need to restart your Connected Franchises for most of the fixes to take effect unless you want changes to your current draft class. In regards to CFM:

“The patch will resolve issues but not retroactively. So any impact from issues in weeks already played will still be there (mostly stats) but will be fixed as you play through additional weeks.” – Rex Dickson, Madden Creative Director
