Madden NFL 17 Roster Update - Week 5

It’s Thursday, which means EA Sports has released their weekly Madden NFL 17 roster update.

Week 5 of the NFL season begins tonight as the Arizona Cardinals take on the San Francisco 49ers. Not much was expected of the 49ers coming into 2016, so their lackluster record isn’t surprising. However, the Cardinals are a team with Super Bowl aspirations, and their slow start has shocked the football world. A win against the 49ers could be what Arizona needs to start getting back into the swing of things.

Before week 5 gets underway, let’s take a look at the players whose Madden ratings have risen and fallen based on their week 4 performance.

Trending up:

Isaiah Crowell, HB, Cleveland Browns (+5 to 82 Overall)

Jimmy Graham, TE, Seattle Seahawks (+2 to 90 Overall)

Marvin Jones Jr., WR, Detroit Lions (+2 to 86 Overall)

Trending down:

Robert Ayers Jr., RE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4 to 81 Overall)

Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions (-2 to 85 Overall)

Todd Gurley II, HB, Los Angeles Rams (-1 to 84 Overall)
