EA Sports has released the week 3 roster update for Madden NFL 17.
Week 3 of the NFL season kicks off tonight with two undefeated teams clashing in Foxborough, MA. Jimmy Garoppolo has been one of the biggest surprises of the season so far, but with his status in question for tonight, how will the New England Patriots respond? Meanwhile, the Houston Texans are out to prove that they are the real deal. Many prognosticators have predicted Houston to win their division, but they’ll have to fulfill that destiny on the field.
There are a lot of interesting storylines heading into week 3, but before we get there, let’s take a look at some of the players whose ratings have changed because of what happened in week 2.
These players are trending upwards:
Muhammad Wilkerson, LE, New York Jets (+2 to 91 Overall)
Josh McCown, QB, Cleveland Browns (+3 to 74 Overall)
Alec Ogletree, MLB, Los Angeles Rams (+2 to 81 Overall)
These guys saw their ratings drop due to poor play last week:
Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks (-2 to 89 Overall)
Darrelle Revis, CB, New York Jets (-2 to 89 Overall)
Jason Peters, LT, Philadelphia Eagles (-2 to 85 Overall)
The full list of rating changes can be found here.
Will Russell Wilson’s poor play continue? Surely not. He has a chance to get it together this week against the lowly 49ers.
Can Josh McCown break the quarterback curse in Cleveland? The Browns aren’t going anywhere this season, but perhaps 37-year-old McCown can provide a semblance of stability at that all-important position.
