It’s time for the Madden 18 player ratings.
Arguably the most successful sports franchise simulator, Madden has been one of the most anticipated games of the year for over two decades. We’ve already seen a number of the rookies in the 2017 NFL Draft react to their ratings on the EA Sports title, with most greatly overvaluing themselves.
Now we can get a sneak peak at what everyone will be rated when the title launches later this month.
There are several notable omissions from the list. Any roster moves that have taken place within the last week or so are not included on the sortable spreadsheet. That means Jay Cutler isn’t on the Miami Dolphins roster yet.
Colin Kaepernick remains an eligible free agent in your franchise mode, though.
The most notable instance of over-valuing after a cursory glance is the ratings is that Dak Prescott has received an 86. After only one season in the league, he rates higher than Andy Dalton, Carson Palmer, Phillip Rivers, Ryan Tannehill, Eli Manning, Joe Flacco, Alex Smith and Sam Bradford.
Madden ratings are always hotly contested, but as the actual season progresses, EA Sports if pretty good about releasing updates that come closer to matching the real world.
These ratings are based largely on what happened in the season immediately preceding the game’s release.
