Keenan Allen – Madden Ratings
Add Keenan Allen to the list of players that are not happy about their madden ratings this season. Madden 20 releases early for Xbox One, PS4, and PC players early on July 25th and players will see low ratings. With only four players in the 99 overall club, not including cover star Patrick Mahomes, ratings are more moderate than years past. The excuses for most players from the “madden rating adjusters” has been the stretching of ratings this year. Whether this is true or not remains in question. Allen is tied with Amari Cooper and Julian Edelman at an 89 overall rating. Overall the madden ratings are an interesting topic to dive into.
If we strictly look at the stats of A.J Green, T.Y Hilton, and Davante Adams who are a few players above him, you see why Allen is only an 89. Green had the same amount of touchdowns (6) as Allen in only nine games. Wide receivers Hilton and Adams finished with more yards and combined for 19 touchdowns (13 for Adams). Stats aren’t everything and multiple things play into a players rating, but Allen is rated just one overall too low. I would argue that Allen should be a 90 overall, but I’m not a madden rating adjuster.
The madden ratings have received their fair amount of criticism so week one will be one to watch both on the field and in the game. To have Madden ratings that low is going to change the way the players play the game in a way we haven’t seen before.
