Madden NFL 25 Roster Update: Week 16

Just two weeks remain in the NFL season, and teams are continuing to jockey for playoff positioning. The Cowboys failed to capitalize on the Eagles' surprising loss to the Vikings, while the Lions dropped a huge home game to the Ravens on Monday Night Football.

Here are three of the biggest changes from the Madden NFL 25 Week 16 roster update.

No Peterson, no Gerhart, no problem? Asiata entered Week 15 against the Eagles with just three career carries. All he did in his first NFL start was score three touchdowns on a whopping 30 carries. Asiata's OVR increases five points to 66, with big-time boosts to STR (up ten points to 79), AWR (up eight to 64), and TRK (up seven to 92).

The second-year kicker out of Texas continued his outstanding 2013 season by booting six fields (including the 61-yard game-winner) in the Ravens win over the Lions. Tucker hasn't missed a kick since Week 2, and he's well-deserving of a four-point increase to 96 OVR.

With Robert Griffin III shut down for the remainder of the season, Cousins made the most of his opportunity by throwing for 381 yards and three touchdowns in the Redskins' loss to the Falcons. Cousins' OVR now sits at 77 thanks to a two-point increase.
