Madden 21 Ratings: Week 7 Roster Update predictions - Lockett, Patriots, Mayfield, Burrow, Cowboys & more

Another wild NFL Sunday is in the books. There were plenty of amazing performances by players across the league, and more than a few awful ones.

Who will be getting a boost in the next roster update? And which players will be getting a downgrade?

Tyler Lockett (88 to 90)

Our pick for a massive TOTW card, Tyler Lockett was sensational yet again on Sunday.

THE MAN: Lockett has looked like an All-Pro this season

15 catches, 200 yards, and three scores should see him break into the 90 OVR range as he continues to provide an amazing target for Russell Wilson.

Stephon Gilmore (99 to 98)

It might be time to remove Gilmore from the 99 Club. It's not that he had an awful day, or has been getting chewed up all season, but Gilmore is not out-and-out dominant against everyone this year.

He won't be the only Patriots player in line for a drop either. Julian Edelman (85 OVR) and Cam Newton (80 OVR) are both likely to see their OVRs take a hit.

Scotty Miller (72 to 74)

The latest in Tom Brady's list of favorite targets, Scotty Miller still sits at 72 OVR.

Six catches for 109 yards and a score should see his rating improve this week.

Dallas Cowboys defense (down 2 OVR)

It was another awful day for the Cowboys defense. While individual stat lines look good (Leighton Vander Esch & Jaylon Smith with 12 tackles each), the overall performance was awful.

SWING AND A MISS: The Cowboys defense has been awful all year

Awareness and play recognition should take a hit for nearly everyone on the defense.

Baker Mayfield & Joe Burrow (78 to 80)

It was a wild shootout between the Browns and Bengals as two #1 picks went toe-to-toe.

Between them the two QBs put up 703 passing yards and nine TDs as they showed off the future of the NFL.

While neither were perfect, both deserve a ratings increase on the back of their efforts.
