The fake undrafted free agents that were generated for teams during Preseason Week 1 only existed in Madden NFL 12. That feature hasn't appeared in any other Madden game. To that end, you have nothing to worry about.

Re: Pre-season games - meaningless?

Although this is mostly meaningless to today's (or any Madden game since), the last time I played a preseason game was when there was no preseason games. On Madden '98 I would sign some of the free agents and play 4 games before I started a season (no franchise or dynasty was available), alternating between players through the game, every game. I found that certain players that had weaker ratings than others (no OVR in that game) performed better than those with higher ratings.

I honestly put way too many hours into that game.

So after looking into it, it looks like Madden 25 also had you repeat the same four preseason games over and over and over. This somewhat irks me, now yes at times you do play the same teams in the preseason (Lions always play the Browns, etc) but I'd like some variety. I'll probably ask somewhat with Access to look into it during open questions.
