EA Sports released the latest Madden 18 ratings and roster update. It is now available to download on both PS4 and Xbox One.
Madden 18 Ratings Update
Unlike last week, this ratings update includes a few high profile players making their way into the upper echelon of ratings. In particular, WR Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons made the jump up to a 99 overall rating. Also, DE Aaron Donald rose up one point to hit a 99 overall rating. Steelers fans will certainly be happy to find that both WR Antonio Brown and HB Leveon Bell rose a couple of points as well. After this update, Brown is now at a 98 while Bell sits at a 95.
- HB Alvin Kamara +3 (86 overall)
- SS Budda Baker +3 (77 overall)
- FS Marcus Gilchrist +4 (82 overall)
- SS Mathias Farley +3 (77 overall)
- RG David Decastro +3 (96 overall)
- FB Zach Line +3 (80 overall)
- LOLB Lawrence Timmons -3 (75 overall)
- HB Jamaal Charles -3 (80 overall)
- FS Eddie Jackson -3 (77 overall)
- LOLB Lamaar Houston -3 (73 overall)
- RT Denzelle Good -3 (74 overall)
- FS TJ McDonald Jr. -4 (74 overall)
As you can see from our winners and losers lists, there were some big changes in the Madden 18 ratings of a few players. The recent success that HB Alvin Kamara has had helped propel his rating up by three big points. His FB, Zach Line, has seen his rating go up by three points in each week. Line’s rating is up by six points over the past two weeks. That’s a pretty big boost for a full back.
Arizona Cardinal’s rookie SS, Budda Baker, has also seen his overall rating go up dramatically over the last two weeks. Baker’s overall rose by four big points last week, then jumped by three big points this week. That’s great news if you like using the Cardinals in competitive games.
Bears fans aren’t happy with this roster update as two of their defensive players find themselves on the big losers list. Both LOLB Lamaar Houston and FS Eddie Jackson lost three points from their overall ratings. Disappointing for any of you who like to play Madden 18 online competitive matches with the Chicago Bears.
