Madden NFL 15 Week One Upcoming Roster Update Discussion

Posted September 9th, 2014 at 1:00 pm


The next roster update will for Madden NFL 15 will carry with it even greater significance than just being the first in-season update of the season. Baltimore Ravens’ running back Ray Rice, who was released and subsequently suspended indefinitely yesterday, is likely to receive the Aaron Hernandez treatment. Look for him to be removed from the game completely and not just in the latest roster but from Ultimate Team as well.

Week one of the NFL season had a couple upsets and some great comeback attempts that were achieved or came up short. For the first time in the Tom Brady era the Patriots are in sole possession of last place in the AFC East.

Players likely to receive boosts in this week’s roster update include Matt Ryan, Le’Veon Bell, Terrance West, Brandin Cooks, Kelvin Benjamin, Cordarrelle Patterson, Allen Hurns, James Carpenter, Kelechi Osemele, Cameron Wake, Jurrell Casey, Fletcher Cox, Kawann Short, and Jason Verrett. Possibly on the decline are Jay Cutler, Tony Romo, Maurice Jones-Drew, Eddie Royal, Gabe Carimi, Brad Jones, Terrence Newman, HaHa Clinton-Dix, and Kenny Vaccaro.

A number of premier players sustained serious injuries. Derrick Johnson, Robert Mathis, and Mike DeVito are done for the year – coincidentally all having ruptured their achilles. Others like Jadeveon Clowney, Tyler Eifert, Jeremy Lane, Bryan Bulaga, and Evan Mathis will be out for extended stretches of time.
