Calvin Johnson had a monster season last year. It earned him the spot on the Madden 13 cover and a 99 overall rating – the highest possible – to start the season. That went down to 98 with the week 8 roster update but while he may not be catching as many touchdown passes, he is catching more passes for more yards this year than he did last year. EA Sports has given Megatron a bump back up to 99.

Nick Fairley may have played his best game as a professional last week against the Vikings and it shows in this week’s roster update. Fairley goes from 82 to 84. Ndamukong Suh, on the other hand, sees a one point drop this week.

Overall, the Lions disappointing season has had ratings for Lions players on the decline and this week is no different. The summary of changes to the Lions roster for this week looks like this:

Calvin Johnson WR DET Decrease, from 69 to 67CARRY
Willie Young DL DET Decrease, from 72 to 71OVR
