EA Sports has released the week 2 roster update for Madden NFL 17.

Week 2 of the NFL season kicks off tonight, as the Buffalo Bills get set to take on the New York Jets. Just in time for Thursday Night Football, EA has released their Week 2 rating changes. The full list of rating adjustments can be found here.

Here are some players trending in the right direction:

Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers (+1 to 98 Overall)

Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions (+2 to 87 Overall)

David Johnson, HB, Arizona Cardinals (+2 to 86 Overall)

Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, New England Patriots (+2 to 74 Overall)

And here are four gents who are trending downwards:

Orlando Sandrick, CB, Dallas Cowboys (-3 to 84 Overall)

Tamba Hali, ROLB, Kansas City Chiefs (-2 to 88 Overall)

Kirk Cousins, QB, Washington Redskins (-2 to 82 Overall)

Aaron Donald, DT, Los Angeles Rams (-1 to 97 Overall)

The biggest surprise of week 1 was certainly Jimmy Garoppolo’s performance, as he led the Bradyless and Gronkless Patriots to a win against the juggernaut Cardinals. The results of other surprising and not so surprising narratives have affected this week’s Madden rating changes.
