Madden 18: Week 16 Roster Ratings Update
The highlights of this week’s roster update feature changes to players from the Jaguars, Lions and Chargers collectively. All three teams have at least two players who saw significant changes in their overall ratings. Jaquars QB Blake Bortles and WR Keelan Cole were rewarded for big games. Both players received two meaningful points to their overall ratings. QB Jimmy Garoppolo gets a much deserved ratings boost as he also gained two points in his overall.
QB’s Philip Rivers and Dak Prescott both struggled and suffered a one point loss in their overall ratings as a result. Staying with QB’s, there were three players whose overall ratings climbed up by one point. QB’s Nick Foles, Jameis Winston and Cam Newton each gained one point in their rating. Foles and Newton were rewarded for their success after both were main reasons for their respective teams winning big games this past weekend.
Speaking of big games, Chiefs rookie HB Kareem Hunt gained two points in his overall rating. He is now at an 86. Fellow AFC West HB, Melvin Gordon also saw a two point ratings boost putting him at an 88. Lions HB’s Ameer Abdullah and rookie Tion Green both witnessed their overall ratings drastically change. However, the difference is one player plummeted while the other skyrocketed. Todd Gurley and Mark Ingram both rose by one point in their overall ratings as well. Gurley comes up to an 89 rating while Ingram climbs to an 88.

Ragland has had to step up for those of you who use the Chiefs in competitive online play and his continued ratings success will serve you well on defense.
