  1. What do you guys think of moving guys up or down week to week?
    Lets take Ravens center Ryan Jenson for example.
    Launched at a 71 ovr.
    Week 2 went down to 69
    week 3 back up to a 72
    week 4 up to 75
    week 5 down to 73
    I think unless a guy performs drastically different from his ratings we don't need to see him change after every week.
    Guys are going to have good games and bad games. These changes are equivalent to the impact of confidence in CFM.
    Seems like a lot of unnecessary work and knee jerk reactions. Grading every player week to week is too much work. So now we have a situation where Ravens center has had his ratings change every week and yet a guy like Jimmy Smith who so far is graded as one of the best cover corners of the season hasn't been touched.

    That's why I think they should do them every 4 weeks makes more sense then bumping up then dropping them every week.
    I'd have minimal changes the first four weeks, and try to stay away from editing the same guy's ratings on a weekly basis. The guys I's be most inclined to change would be mid to late round rookies that have low ratings but appear to break out right away, at least make them respectable in the game
    Yea, the current system of weekly knee jerk reactions to ratings has been going on for years. Personally, I'd prefer a different system than weekly, but this is one way they keep some people interested, right?
    I remember reading blogs by Madden Manniac for Madden 13 that discussed this exact issue. Here's a couple that I found for those that might be interested in reading them. Lots of data to digest.

    He also did a blog for Madden 12(?) that detailed how different attributes affected OVR. I don't know if the formula is the same, as I think they have added, deleted, or combined attributes since then, but it was an interesting read at the time too.
    Uggg please change Trubisky face for the love of god he doesn’t look 65 years old . We been suggesting new faces for him since launch in the likeness thread . But yea these weekly ratings changes are meh go to every 3/4 weeks

    I've been screaming for this tweeting EA since launch. I really am dying to start a Bears CFM but cant do it till he is addressed. We are probably gonna get ignored all year.

    Somehow Dont’e Hightower’s face got corrupted and went to a small generic head.
    A "small, generic head"... This is hilarious.

    Now that Trubisky is one of 32 starting QBs in the league (on top of being the second overall pick in this years draft) can we please get a face update for the guy?

    How is Watson a 76 when he's currently a top 10 QB through 4 weeks? He should easily be an 85+.

    Can't tell if serious or not...

    Well, he does have back to back 5 TD weeks now lol
    He should be, at least, an 80 overall now.
    Through 5 weeks...
    Total overall TD's:
    Watson - 14 ( 76 Madden rating )
    Rogers - 13 ( 97 Madden rating )
    Brady - 11 ( 98 Madden rating )
    See a problem here? What's the point in weekly roster updates if they don't accurately depict what's actually happening in the NFL?

    Don't be ridiculous, he'll settle for 88 lol

    Madden is slow to boost QBs, and rightly so. Its not like other QBs are getting big boosts and Watson is the only one not getting attention.
    Bumping him up to something like 80 is fair, and I would not object to. But the other guy wants EA to bump him over guys that been doing work for multiple years based on one month of football.
    (but I got this unexplainable suspicion that he might be biased)

    Agreed, I just think he's better than a 76. I think back to back 5 TD weeks (which is laughably absurd for a rookie to do btw), is deserving of at least high 70s / low 80s
    :ohno:

    I'm not saying put him over Rogers or Brady but I don't think a 76 rating is defensible. Imo he should be an 85 at least. That more accurately reflects whats happening on the field. He's had a few rookie moments but he also leads the league in TD's. I mean right now Trubisky is currently higher rated than him which is absolutely ridiculous at this point.

    The Bears didn’t switch long and Sitton at guards , Sitton is still at left and Kyle at Right please fix

    The site they use has them listed that way even rotoworlds says same thing. They use ourlads.
    Btw just checked the bears official site and they have them listed that way as well.

    Well that’s because that was going to be the initial lineup in pre season but injuries happen . The last few games Josh has been at LG and Kyle has been at RG since Kyle Long has returned from his ankle injury .

    A little bit more goes into the equation than stats through 5 weeks........
