Top 20 Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Which Guys Made the Cut?

player ratings Madden NFL 20

If you thought FIFA fans were the only ones who care about player ratings, you could not be more wrong. Sorry, but it’s true. I’m not going to say NFL fans are more hardcore than soccer fans, but I will say Madden players care just as much about ratings as FIFA players do.

Now that we have that cleared up, let’s talk football. The football video game “Madden NFL” has been popular for more than a decade, and on June 14, 2019, Electronic Arts released Madden NFL 20. Even though there are several differences in this game—a lot of the players included are from a generation that grew up playing the earlier versions—one thing in particular stuck out to us.

According to the creators of the e-sports video game, Madden NFL 20 is supposed to be much more realistic. That means players aren’t getting undeserved ratings (cough, Matteo Brighi in FIFA 03). With that, Madden fans might see some player ratings in Madden NFL 20 they were not expecting.

Coming up are the top 20 player ratings from Madden NFL 20.

Born in 1988, Damon Harrison, otherwise known as Big Snacks, plays as a defensive tackle (defensive guard is another name for the newbies reading this) for the Detroit Lions.

In Madden NFL 20, Harrison has an overall rating of 95.

Free safety for the Baltimore Ravens, Earl Thomas III scored an overall rating of 95 in Madden NFL 20.

While a good score, many will likely remember the 30-year-old less for his Madden rating and more for helping the Seattle Seahawks in their 2014 Superbowl victory against the Denver Broncos.

18. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Zach Martin

Offensive guard for the Dallas Cowboys, Zach Martin scored an overall rating of 96 in Madden 20. Are we surprised? Not overly. The man has made six All-Pro teams; he was never going to score less than 96 in this version of the game.

17. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce may have joined the latest injury report for the Kansas City Chiefs, but at least he got a solid overall rating in Madden NFL 20. The 30-year-old who plays as a tight end received a rating of 96.

When life gives you lemons, right?

16. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Todd Gurley II

No list would be complete without good ‘ol Todd, the running back for the Los Angeles Rams. I’ve seen him play before—an overall score of 96 in Madden NFL 20 seems pretty justifiable to me.

15. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: J.J. Watt

Defensive end for the Houston Texans, J.J. Watt scored an overall rating of 96 in the latest version of the football video game. He also scored Kealia Ohai as his finance (she’s the midfielder/forward for the Chigaco Red Stars), so we like to think of him as one of the main winners on this list.

14. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Fletcher Cox

Defensive tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles, Fletcher Cox, like many of his opposition, scored an overall player rating of 96.

13. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Jalen Ramsey

A cornerback for the Los Angeles Rams, Jalen Ramsey is the youngest thus far on this list (25), but he’s kept up with the opposition, earning an overall rating of 96 in Madden NFL 20.

12. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Tom Brady

Quarterback for the New England Patriots, Tom Brady is perhaps one of the more well-known football players in the world. Fans and non-fans alike know of him and the six Superbowls he has won. Still, the big six were not enough to give him the highest player rating in Madden 20, as Mr. Brady has an overall score of 97 in this version. 

Maybe that’s why he lost to the Tennesse Titans in wild-card round game (kidding—sorry, Patriots fans).

11. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Von Miller

An outside linebacker for the Denver Broncos, Von Miller, 30, scored an overall player rating of 97 in Madden NFL 20. An ego boost, I’m sure, to be in the same category as Tom Brady. 

10. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: David Bakhtiari

Another ego boost! Electronic Arts awarded the offensive tackle for the Green Bay Packers, David Bakhtiari, an overall player rating of 97 in the latest version of Madden.

9. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Odell Beckham Jr

A wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, Odell Beckham Jr., is another household name in the football industry. And for a good reason too, hence why the 27-year-old has an overall rating of 97 in Madden NFL 20.

8. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Antonio Brown

Right, this is a tough one.

At the time of writing, Antonio Brown is a free agent after having been dropped by both the Oakland Raiders and the New England Patriots. We won’t get into the details, as they’re not great. What is great, however, is Brown’s overall rating on Madden NFL 20: 97.

7. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Luke Kuechly

A linebacker for the Carolina Panthers, Luke Kuechly has an overall rating of 98 on Madden NFL 20.

6. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Julio Jones

Wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons, Julio Jones has an overall player rating of 98 in Madden NFL 20. Surprise? Not really. Jones has made quite the impression on the league, with Jerry Rice even claiming Jones, 30, is one of the most impressive receivers in the NFL.

5. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes is only our second QB on this list, but we won’t get into that. We will happily take the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs beating Tom Brady in overall Madden 20 ratings any day (again, sorry Patriot fans).

Mahomes has an overall rating of 98 in the latest version of the game.

4. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Khalil Mack

As mentioned, Electronic Arts wanted to give NFL players ratings that accurately represented the past few seasons. And that is why it’s all the more impressive that only four players have overall scores of 99.

So well done, Khalil Mack, linebacker for the Chicago Bears; you’re in a whole new category this year! 

3. Top Player Ratings in Madden NFL 20: Bobby Wagner

Linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks, Bobby Wagner has an overall rating of 99 in Madden NFL 20.

Wide receiver for the Houston Texans, DeAndre Hopkins has not only an incredible survival story but an overall rating of 99 in Madden NFL 20. We think that’s very deserved.
