Madden NFL 12 Roster Update, Week 6: Twelve 49ers Get Ratings Increases

The post-week five roster update for Madden NFL 12 is set to come out today (Friday), and with it comes a host of changes for both of the Bay Area's teams, though the San Francisco 49ers receive the bulk of the improvement, after their 48-3 beatdown of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs saw four of their players receiver decreases as a result of the game.

For the 49ers? Twelve players went up, which has been the trend with the last two roster updates. In fact, San Francisco didn't have a single player drop during this update, a welcome change from the beating their offensive line has been taking in real life, and on the game. The most significant increase is Chris Culliver, who jumps from a 66 overall rating to a 71. Alex Smith also jumps three points from 80 to 83, after starting the game ranked in the mid-seventies. After the jump, the complete list of ratings changes.

Increases

QB Alex Smith 80 to 83
HB Frank Gore 92 to 94
FB Bruce Miller 51 to 54
TE Delanie Walker 70 to 73
WR Kyle Williams 52 to 57
CB Chris Culliver 66 to 71
CB Tarell Brown 74 to 75
CB Carlos Rogers 82 to 84
LB Parys Haralson 79 to 81
LB Aldon Smith 78 to 79
LB NaVorro Bowman 77 to 80
LB Ahmad Brooks 77 to 78

Decreases

None

Changes

WR Josh Morgan lowered on depth chart (IR)
WR Ted Ginn Jr. moved to WR #2 on depth chart
WR Brett Swain signs
WR John Matthews signs

That's a big list of increases, and all of them are well-deserved. Some players, like Bowman and Aldon Smith, are seeing increases each week - along with quarterback Alex Smith. John Matthews making the roster is just another one of Madden's weird inconsistencies, since he didn't actually make the roster. He's on the practice squad, and I guess they just want him on there for injury purposes. Our friends over at Pasta Padre have the full list of changes for all teams here.
