EA updates the Madden 21 roster ratings each week, adjusting hundreds of ratings according to the 2020 NFL season.
The week 8 Madden 21 roster update is in, so let's get right into the biggest changes!
Week 8 Roster Update
Each week's Madden roster update is massive, shaking up hundreds of ratings.
We separate the biggest ratings changes into two categories - winners and loers.
These players came out of week 8 with a lot of momentum, and it shows in their Madden 21 ratings.
Let's dive right into the big winners of the Madden 21 week 8 roster update.
Dalvin Cook put on a monstrous performance in week 8, earning him a 3 OVR increase to 95 OVR.
Cook came up with 3 rushing TDs and 1 receiving TD across 163 rushing yards and 63 receiving yards.
This pushed the Minnesota Vikings to a 28-22 upset victory over the Green Bay Packers.
Keenan Allen had a decent showing in week 8, and with his consistent growth, it's been enough to push his Madden 21 rating up to 93 OVR.
Allen pulled in 1 TD across 67 receiving yards against the Denver Broncos in a 30-31 Los Angeles Chargers loss.
Kamara had a good showing in week 8, and with his consistently strong season, it was enough to grow his Madden 21 rating to 92 OVR.
Kamara ran for 67 yards on Sunday, and pulled in 97 receiving yards as well. Despite a fumble, Kamara helped push the new Orleans Saints to a 26-24 OT victory over the Chicago Bears.
Not everyone can come out ahead in the NFL, and for those that failed in week 8, it'll show in Madden 21.
These are the biggest losers of the Madden 21 week 8 roster update.
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 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.
This poor showing was enough to bring Cooper down to a 92 OVR in Madden 21.
Darren Weller has been a consistent threat for the Las Vegas Raiders, but in week 8, he didn't show it.
Weller pulled in just 27 yards on 6 targets - despite the game being a 16-6 win over the Cleveland Browns.
Waller's underwhelming performance bumped him down to 90 OVR in Madden 21.
