The weekly roster update for Madden 13 has been released and it turns out to be another good one as far as our virtual Detroit Lions are concerned.
With the Lions finding their winning ways, the bulk of the changes this week come in the form of ratings increases.
Not surprisingly, some of the biggest jumps come for young players that have outperformed expectations in recent weeks. Cornerback Jonte Green leads the way with a +4, going from a 68 overall to a more respectable 72. Joique Bell gets a two point bump but still looks low at 66 overall.
In total, nine Detroit Lions are seeing an increase this week while six Lions get knocked down slightly. Jeff Backus takes the biggest hit as he drops two points to a new rating of 78 overall.
