These are the biggest losers of the Madden 21 week 8 roster update.

Lamar Jackson

Lamar Jackson is coming off of an MVP season for the Baltimore Ravens. And while he's shown bright spots early in 2020, he's had some weak performances as of late.

Week 8 was one of these weaker showings, with Jackson throwing for just 208 yards, 2 TDs, and 2 INTs with a measly 65 rushing yards in the 24-28 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Because of this, Jackson falls to a 91 OVR in Madden 21.

Amari Cooper

Amari Cooper had some success in the early to mid 2020 NFL season, but week 8 was a huge rock bottom - and not just for the Dallas Cowboys.

Cooper managed just 5 yards in the 9-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
