Madden NFL 12 Ratings Move On to Top WRs, Broncos, Chiefs

by
Posted August 3rd, 2011 at 6:21 pm

The deliberately slow rollout of Madden NFL 12 ratings continues with another two teams today and the unveiling of the highest rated wide receivers. The Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs are the latest teams to get the full roster reveal.

The top receivers are Andre Johnson (97), Larry Fitzgerald (96), Roddy White (96), Reggie Wayne (95), Calvin Johnson (93), and Greg Jennings (93). Pretty much the guys that would’ve been anticipated to be at the top.

Again keep in mind these are the base rosters and predate all transactions that began taking place last week. As always leave any thoughts on the ratings in the comments!

    I’m surprised Calvin Johnson is only a 93, I expected him around 96. He has all the tools, he just has a knack for getting injured.

    • Ghost of John Madden

      He might not have great agility/acceleration - big long striders like him lose points there

      • maeby

        He might not, but he does. Watch some tape my friend. Tis what makes him a freak. Matt Jones (6-5, 235) could run a 4.3, but couldn’t move in any other direction. Calvin can.

    • Cwithey22

      Calvins rating reflects the horrible Qb play for detroit last yr i think. After this season with a healthy stafford i think he will shoot up to 96 or 97 next yr

    It should be like this:

    1. Andre Johnson.

    2. Calvin Johnson.

    3. Larry Fitzgerald.

    4. Roddy White.

    5. DeSean Jackson.

    • m29a

      Number 5 is laughable.

    • Anonymous

      LOL DeSean Jackson had less than 50 catches last season and you have him at 5th? Hilarious 

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000295534671 Jared Baxter

        47 catches and still had over 1000 yards.

        • Valdrin12

      You really think DeSean Jackson is better than Reggie Wayne?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000295534671 Jared Baxter

        Look who is throwing to him. Peyton Manning could make Malcolm Kelly look great.

    • Elfuego4560
    • FattyMcT

      Desean Jackson isn’t even a top 20 WR. He just makes a big play once every 2 or 3 games. Take away the deep ball and he’s got nothing. He’s not even the best WR in his own team, Maclin is waaay superior.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000295534671 Jared Baxter

        Was 12th in receiving yards this past season. Also averaged more yards per catch than anyone else on that list. 

        • Elfuego4560

          To stat whores like you he may seem like a top 5 WR. According to the stats, Brandon LLoyd is a top 5 WR too. Arian Foster must be the best RB in the league as well. Tony Romo’s Passer Rating is in the top 5 of all time…must be one of the best QB’s of all time. When you grow up and actually learn how to evaluate a players performance by what they show on the field, instead of just counting statistics and watching highlights, then you’ll realize how ignorant you make yourself sound.

          • Balls211

            lol you finished him

    • Great Game

      I was looking At The Kansas City Chiefs Player Ratings it Just Blew My Mind The Number One Rushing team in The League And In Madden they just Average running team And Also when is Madden going to start going to give Brandon Carr Some respect U ask Football people he is considered one of the best young corners in the game

      • Great Game

        Madden He led the League In Pass Deflections and Also he was Ranked 3 in Burn Percentage thats the stat that shows how many times a corner been targeted and what completions Percentage givin up and he was 3 in the league Behind Darrelle Revis And Stanford Routt ahead of Nnamdi and others give him some respect 81 Rating thats a Joke.

        • Great Game

          Also Brandon Carr ran a 4.43 at His Pro day 87 speed whats wrong with u guys.

          • Great Game

            Tramon Williams started low on madden and hes been one of the best corners in the league the last couple of years and now hes i think in the Mid to low 90 in Ratings much respect to him at the combine he clock a 4.5 and now hes if im not mistaken 93 or 94 speed and he Deserves it but Brandon has followed in the smae Path its time for him to get some respect Madden Creaters do me a Favor if u dont believe me Go to NFL.com and check to see what im talking about Brandon Carr since hes been in the league has put up some really good Numbers. Just wanted to say my Peace and want the dude to get some Respect Cause hes not getting any Respect.

          • Logic

            Hey Terrell Thomaas ran a 4.40 and has 85 speed.

          • Great Game

            its not only about the the 40 time Brandon Carr Plays Fast the Chiefs plays Man Coverage alot also and that guy run well with everyone he Covers in Green bay When Tramon Williams first started off he wasnt as fast as he is now but Being a good Cover man They realize on the field he runs well with alot of Receivers and his speed went up

          • Logic

            Even though he’s a reciever Dez Bryant ran a 4.5 and has 91 speed and on this new Madden 12 he will have 94 speed.

          • Great Game

            Thatd the point im Making There is Track Speed and Game speed Dez Has Game Speed thats y hes faster on the field than he is running a 40

      • ballsucker69

        umm isn’t jamal charles like overall 95?

        • Great Game

          Im Not talkin about Jamaal Charles i know what he is and he deserves that rating im talking about the Guys that didnt get the ratings they deserve and if u dont believe me just like i told Madden Creaters Check NFL.com out and check Brandon Carr out and also Burt Percentage then u will see he deservesmore that a 81

  • NoFro904

    Calvin Should be right behind Andre
    or TiedIMO hes the best WR in the NFL  but i could a little biased :)

    Roddy is good, i just dont see him as the 3rd Best WR in the NFL.

    • Anonymous

      I agree that CJ should be rated better (95 or 96) but Roddy probably put up the best overall stats in the league last year while literally being double/triple team on every single play from scrimmage. 

      • Bamalion3

        you obviously don’t watch the games. Roddy White hardly ever commanded that type of coverage,
        BECAUSE Matty Ice killed people when they tried.  Most of Roddy’s 100+ catches came from short and underneath routes.  Granted, Roddy is good, but Im not sure he is elite if he plays on a lesser team

        • Ghost of John Madden

          OR – he’d be MORE elite if he played on a passing team instead of a run-first run-focused team

        • Anonymous

          If i remember correctly the only faclons game i didnt watch was against cincinnati.. but anyways Matt Ryan didnt “kill” anyone when they doubled White. Atlanta just didnt have a number 2 receiver to throw to if the number 1 was covered, teams could and did double White. In the second half of the season the Saints drew up the perfect defensive plan to stuff ATL’s offense; they doubled White and Tony G, single covered M. Jenkins (he sucks so much ass) and literally stuffed everyone else in the box to counter the 20+ times they run turner up the middle.. worked like a charm. Oh and the first season Roddy put up 1,000+ yards he did it on a team that won 4 games and had Joey Harrington throwing to him.. JOEY HARRINGTON! so he can be elite on a lesser team.

    Yo PP.  Whats Hakeem Nicks?

    • Steelersfan13

      They haven’t said yet.

    • Guest

      Obviously not as good as the top 5…

      • Logic

         In only his second year and after missing 3 games he is tough. Straight up. I say a 91 is about right.

    • Guest

      Obviously not as good as the top 5…

    • Cheifsfan32

      He’s prob gonna be a 90 or 91 cause that’s what he had when the season ended.

      I’m not even a Giants fan but the guy is a monster, just look at his highlights and catches he’s made.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=43004387 Jimmy Kraft

    Roddy White is a little surprising. Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson should be the top 3. I think Reggie Wayne is good, but he’s not one of the top 3 in the league.

    Where’s Randy Moss? Oh wait…

    • TheTourettesGuy’sDad

      Roddy White had the best overall stats of all WR’s last year. If anything, he should be tied, or at least, better than Fitzgerald, but that wouldn’t be fair to Larry, because he had trash throwing him the ball in Arizona last year.

  • CitiBoy7

    This list seems about right except for Reggie Wayne who should be a 89 or 90

  • Xcef2008

    Switch Reggie Wayne and Calvin Johnson and I’d be happy with the list. 

  • Xcef2008

  • Dymez

    Megatron should be right up under Andre Johnson, tied with Larry for the #2 spot.  Dre is and has been the best receiver in the game for the past 3 or 4 years for sure so he deserves that #1 spot.  And I can’t penalize Larry from being the #2 receiver in the game just because he played with a rotation of sorry ass Quarterbacks last season.  Roddy White (as good as he is) needs to be dropped down a bit.

    On another note:  I’m surprised I haven’t seen a Miles Austin campaign from a Cowboys fan, yet.

      Mike Huff had a better year.

    • ballsucker69

      miles dropped a few more balls than usual last year, plus he wasn’t involved in the gameplans as much. one of the many reasons for dallas’s down year. plus, he’s not really a top 5 caliber receiver at this point in his career

  • Zack

    Damn Eric Berry an 88 already.

    • Danny

      That’s Donny Moore for ya.

      Eric Berry is a flashy name.

      Doesn’t matter to Moore that Berry had an average rookie season.

      • Da84tona

        You had better be trolling or are you really that stupid? Eric Berry went to the pro bowl. Are you daft?

      • http://www.facebook.com/jacob.gang Jacob Gang

        92 Tackles (3 for loss), 2 sacks, 4 INT’s with a pick 6, 2 Force fumbles, and a pro bowl his rookie year is average to you??

      • Smsixx

        If 87 Tackles, 2 sacks, and 4 ints is an “average rookie season”…then I want to see a list of guys with great ones :)

        Oh yeah…not biased ether…Detroit Lions fan

    • Kip1223

      Carr should be high 80s at least.  He is better than Berry at his position.  Berry struggled early but came on strong.  Also, Gilberry is much better tthan a 64. Had 7.5 sacks last year and will be a starter.

      • Da84tona

        I am a Chiefs fan, so my opinion is bias but I totally agree. Especially considering how much teams went after Carr, since Flowers is pretty damn close to being a shutdown. I really hope Carr has a pro bowl year to get the rating he deserves

  • Danny

    What more does Andre Johnson have to do to earn a 99 rating…..

    Calvin Johnson also deserves to be much higher. Should be even with Fitzgerald.

    • Ghost of John Madden

      8 catches for 120 yards and a touchdown in week one would give him a boost. 

      Then he’d be a 99 and you can cream all over yourself

    • Logic

       Have a star on the side of his helmet (Ouch!) did I just say that?

  • Danny

    Wow, just realized Reggie Wayne was rated higher than Calvin Johnson.

    Was Moore on roofies when he made these ratings?

    And I thought he couldn’t be more incompetent… 

  • Atlfan556

    why dont they just release all the rosters? stupid ass EA

  • Da84tona

    I cannot wait to use the Chiefs. Toss it up to DBowe, and when they cover that, toss it up to Baldwin, and back and forth. I really hope Baldwin makes a big impact and shuts the critics up.

  • AFC 4EVER

    Greg Jennings put the team on his back though

    • Franchize

      Fuck you gumby!

      • Da84tona

        Lets go inside the mind of a greg jennings *bldbldlbdlbdlbldbldp*

    • Giants27

      Yeah but Darren Sharper is the hardenest hittin saftey in da league…

    • Logic

      But he’s more of a system reciever. Green Bay’s offense is a pro-version of Texas Tech’s offesne. Spread em out and throw it. In another system, he wouldn’t be so good, but be not decieved I’d take him in a heart-beat but the system is a reflection of him and Rodgers. In another system, Rodgers wouldn’ be putting up the number he has either.

  • TheTourettesGuy’sDad

    White deserves that rating. Anybody who says otherwise is a moron. 

    • Bamalion3

      White deserves an A-.  He is in the same tier with Reggie Wayne and Greg Jennings.
      Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, and Larry Fitzgerald are the ONLY receivers that have A+ skill sets.  

      • TheTourettesGuy’sDad

         Why does he deserve an A-? For having consistent 1000 yard, 100+ catches every year since 2007? Even with Joey Harrington throwing to him? Fitzgerald didn’t do as good as Roddy did last year, Roddy is easily top 3.

  • Bamalion3

    Calvin Johnson should be around 96. Knack for getting injured? No. DeSean Jackson is more like #10.
    1.Andre 96
    2.Calvin 96
    3.Larry 95
    4.Greg 94
    5.Roddy 93
    Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald are the most talented and still produced with garbage QB’s.  By the end of the season, I think Megatron and Fitz are 1. & 2.

    • Kdarnell

      Roddy put up the best overall stats at receiver last year and was 3rd and 4th the years prior. He deserves what he got.

      • Bamalion3

        Let me put it this way.  Roddy (Go UAB) is fantastic and Matt Ryan threw at him A LOT which is why his stats were so awesome.  We are all splitting hairs here and any of the other teams would love to have any of these guys.
        I think Roddy profits greatly from having a playoff team around him.

        Plus I think the 99-97 OVR is grossly overused by EA and should only go out to the players with Hall of Fame type talent.

  • who dat!?

    Hey pasta, quick question. The saints have a linebacker named Casillas who is rated as 50 something. If he winds up starting, will he go up in overall if ea notice it?

    • Ghost of John Madden

      Yes.  Every starter is a minimum of 70 – which makes no sense because a lot of NFL starters suck.

      • who dat!?

        Thanks bra

    Why are they releasing these? A bunch of these guys aren’t even on these teams anymore. Brian Waters? Chris Chambers? And why is Matt Cassel an 86? I’m a huge Chiefs fan and even I think that’s high.

    Nnamdi was targeted 27 times only gave up 10 completions and 0 touchdowns if anyone should be rated 99 it’s Nnamdi and not Revis… and Desean Jackson is easily top 5 receivers… NFL Network did a Top 100 players in the NFL and he was the 5th highest receiver on the list… Voted by fellow players…

  • Da84tona

    Make your opinions heard. Go to this site: http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/7472311.pag…  Here you can voice your opinion and tell EA what needs to be corrected and why. Be sure and include EXAMPLES, and legitimate points. Represent the Chiefs with class and help fight for the ratings players deserve. They do also ask that requests be in the following format:  This site is the official EA forum thread for the KC Chiefs Ratings. Donny has requested input be formatted as follows:   Top 3 players that need to be INCREASED 1. 2.  3.   Top 3 players that need to be DECREASED 1.  2.  3.  Formatting this way will avoid a biased opinion so put some thought into it and provide examples and reasons that make sense. I’m not saying this will make any difference, and it probably wont, but its worth a try. At least they’re sort of reaching out for feedback.
