EA Sports released their weekly Madden 18 player ratings and roster update for week 14. The Madden 18 ratings update is now available to download on both PS4 and Xbox One.
This week’s update is highlighted by Russel Wilson’s overall rating making a big three point leap from an 89 to a 92 overall. That makes Wilson the highest rated QB behind Tom Brady (96 overall), and Aaron Rodgers when he’s healthy (96 overall). He’s joined in the winners section by his backfield mate, RB Mike Davis, who went from a 73 to a 75 overall, a two point raise.
Wilson’s not the only big name to grace the top of the movers list, though. QB’s Matt Ryan and Drew Brees both made the list, but for a different reason as both of the veteran QB’s saw their overall ratings drop by one point. Might not seem like a whole lot, but those one point dips tend to add up over the course of the Madden season.
Russel Wilson +3 (92 overall)
Tyron Smith +2 (89 overall)
David Irving +3 (83 overall)
Navarro Bowman +3 (81 overall)
Mike Davis +2 (75 overall)
Craig Robertson +3 (78 overall)
Jamaal Charles -2 (78 overall)
Eddie Jackson -3 (74 overall)
John Ross -3 (73 overall)
Taylor Moton -4 (71 overall)
Darius Butler -4 (70 overall)
Jamize Olawale -8 (73 overall)
It was a great week in the ratings if you like playing competitively with the Cowboys, Seahawks, Raiders, Vikings, or the Chiefs. Well, the Chiefs offensive unit had a good week, anyway. The biggest story of the week has to be Russel Wilson’s aforementioned three point jump. The Seahawks are still short CB Richard Sherman and SS Kam Chancellor on defense, but with the way their offense is playing, they are a deadly team to come across in online competitive matches.
The Cowboys offensive line saw a nice bounce back in their overall ratings punctuated by LT Tyron Smith’s three point rebound. Smith is slowly working his rating back up to a respectable number as he’s now at an 89 overall. The Dallas offense has been stagnant until this week, so it’s certainly a much needed jolt to that particular unit. Make no mistake about it, when Dallas’ offense is clicking, they are a tough team to deal with in competitive gameplay.
Unfortunately, RB Jamaal Charles (-2) and FS Eddie Jackson (-3) are both on the losing end of the Madden 18 ratings update, again. These two players in particular are in free-fall over the last few weeks, and it’s certainly no coincidence that their teams are struggling mightily. The worst ratings drops across any one team’s squad can be found along the Carolina Panther offensive line. Their struggles are highlighted by the way RT Taylor Moton fell off by four points. The Panthers O-line has seen a steady decline this week due mostly to their lackluster performance against the New Orleans Saints relentless pass rush.
