OUT WITH THE OLD: Madden 21 ratings will be getting a massive shakeup around week 5

These are the biggest winners and losers of the week.


These players' Madden 21 ratings will rise thanks to some strong performances in week 5 of the 2020 NFL season.

Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce continues to be a leader for the Kansas City Chiefs offense, snagging 8 receptions off of a whopping 12 targets. Kelce managed 108 yards in a TD in the Chiefs' first loss of the season.

Kelce rose to a 98 OVR rating in the week 5 roster update. This ratings bump puts Kelce in striking distance of the 99 Club.

Jalen Ramsey

While Jalen Ramsey had little impact in the crushing 30-10 victory over the Washington Football Team. But he picked up a long-deserved ratings bump from 94 to 95 OVR in the new Madden 21 roster update.

Ramsey is a shutdown corner that is very important to the LA Rams defense. Ramsey threatens bad passes forced by the massive pressure the Rams puts on with their pass rushing.

This will show in Madden 21, where Ramsey has become even more deadly.

Chase Claypool

Chase Claypool might not be a name most NFL fans know, but it's one they should learn. Claypool has steadily grown in 2020 as a threat in the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers offense.

In week 5, Claypool left Earth with an incredible 3 TD and 110 yard performance. This pushed the Pittsburgh Steelers past the Philadelphia Eagles 38-29.

Claypool got a nice ratings bump out of his performance, going up 2 OVR, but he's still at a low 73 OVR Madden 21 rating.


These players had a bad time on the gridiron so far this week, and are facing even worse in Madden 21.

Unlike the minor ratings upgrades for the winners, the losers this week took massive hits to their OVRs. Let's go over the casualties.

Rob Gronkowski

Rob Gronkowski is a legendary TE, but that doesn't change the fact that Madden 21 massively overrated him on release.

OVERRATED: Gronk is a legend, but ratings adjustors massively missed the mark on Madden 21 launch

Since release, Gronk has tanked 10 OVR over the course of the 2020 season - and dropped from 89 to 85 OVR this week.

And while Gronk put in another 50 yard performance in week 5, it's certainly not enough to maintain his high rating.

Jimmy Garoppolo

From the Super Bowl to pulling the starting QB out of a 17-43 blowout loss to the Miami Dolphins - the San Francisco 49ers couldn't hit rock bottom any harder.

DOWN WITH THE SHIP: If Garoppolo is captain of the 49ers, he's going down with the ship

Jimmy Garoppolo had an awful showing in week 5, going 7/17 for 77 yards and throwing 2 interceptions along the way. Garoppolo played so poorly he was replaced by backup CJ Beathard, who managed to go 9/18 for 94 yards, 1 TD, and 0 interceptions in his place.

Garoppolo's rating has dropped significantly this week, going from 83 OVR to 80 OVR - his first ratings change since launch.

Zach Ertz

Zach Ertz managed to drop 3 OVR after his week 5 game, pulling in just 1 reception for 6 yards in the Philadelphia Eagles' loss.

Ertz' trajectory has been quite similar to Rob Gronkowski's, tanking from 90 OVR on Madden 21 release to his current 85 OVR rating.
