Madden NFL 20 Player Ratings Again Stirring Debate

It's the NFL off-season, so what better way to get excited for the season than speculation and conjecture on how our favorite players are going to perform in Madden 20 (out for PS4, Xbox One and PC on August 2nd). The complete player ratings for the game are out now, including the four elite players of the rarified 99 Club – Aaron Donald, Deandre Hopkins, Khalil Mack, and Bobby Wagner.

The game's official site has a handy menu you can filter to see players on each team and by position. Right now it reflects the players at launch, but this will be updated as the season progresses. Needless to say, not everyone agrees with what they are rated.

Madden fans and NFL players alike always have something to say about the game's ratings, but this reveal is also notable within the context that Madden 20 is stretching player ratings. EA Tiburon says the goal is to not only differentiate the league's stars, but also provide a wider spread of "starter-quality" players and a larger drop-off between starters and backups.

Do you agree that Aaron Rodgers isn't a top-five QB? A.J. Green is currently outside the WR top 10, but will he rise after returning from last year's injury? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
