The Game Haus will be analyzing the player ratings from Madden 20 of every NFL team. Madden has a daunting task of rating all NFL players and their attributes. While they have the ability to correct some of these rankings with in-season roster updates, there are some issues with some of the initial rankings of players. Here are the Madden 20 questionable ratings: Denver Broncos.
Bradley Chubb- 80
The Broncos selected Chubb with their first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft to give them two feared pass rushers. Chubb didn’t disappoint, as he registered 12 sacks. Even though he had a good rookie season, Madden 20 only gave him a rating of 80.
Yannick Ngakoue of the Jacksonville Jaguars is a solid pass rusher who had 9.5 sacks in 2018. Madden gave him an 84 rating, even though he had fewer sacks than Chubb. Chubb should be boosted to at least Ngakoue’s rating.
Adjusted Rating- 84
Courtland Sutton- 76
In his rookie season, Sutton put up good numbers with 42 receptions for 704 yards and four touchdowns. The Broncos traded Demaryius Thomas and Sutton was able to do well in his absence. Madden decided to give him a 76 rating for his play in his rookie season.
A player that is rated higher, but produced less than Sutton is DeVante Parker of the Miami Dolphins. He played 11 games with 24 receptions for 309 yards and one touchdown. Parker is rated at a 79, which is more in line with where Sutton should be rated.
Adjusted Rating- 79
Todd Davis- 76
Davis has played solidly for the Broncos over the last few seasons. Last season was his best season yet, as he totaled 121 tackles. While he has some respect around the league, Madden gave him a rating of 76 for this year’s game.
There are some other linebackers that haven’t accomplished as much as Davis who are also rated at a 76. Nick Kwiatkoski, of the Chicago Bears, had the most tackles of his career in a season during the 2017 season with 45. He was also rated at a 76, which means Davis should likely be given an extra point or two.
Adjusted Rating- 78
Jake Butt- 75
Butt had a crucial injury in college and has struggled to stay on the field since joining the NFL. He has played in just three games, totaling eight receptions for 85 yards and no touchdowns. While he was a talented tight end in college, Butt still has a lot to prove in the NFL, but Madden still gave him a rating of 75.
Mike Gesicki had 22 receptions for 202 yards and no touchdowns for the Miami Dolphins as a rookie. While it wasn’t the best season, he did produce more than Butt. Butt still has potential, but until he can put some numbers up on the field, he deserves a little lower of a rating.
Adjusted Rating- 72
