The top rated players in Madden NFL 19

Posted June 19th, 2018 at 2:15 pm

While EA Sports plans to reveal all the player ratings for Madden NFL 19 later in July, many of the ratings have made it out early thanks to a video coming out of EA Play. All teams are scrolled through in the video except for those that start with the letter B. It’s possible these ratings are not final and some adjustments could be made before release in early August.

Three players start the year rated 99 Overall: Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Donald, and Antonio Brown. Donald is the only of the three that ended Madden 18 rated 99 to return as a 99. Rob Gronkowski and J.J. Watt have fallen from 99 to begin the new season.
