Regular Season Rating
After finishing the NFL regular season as the league leader in three major categories for wide receivers, Cooper Kupp has raised his Madden 22 player rating. He recorded 145 catches for 1,947 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns during the regular season. The numbers produced by Kupp were good for the second-most all-time. A regular season of elite production on the field has led to Kupp winning the Offensive Player of the Year Award.
With a game launch rating of 86 overall, Kupp began with the same overall rating as teammate Robert Woods. After suffering an injury during practice in Week 15 of the NFL season, Kupp cemented his status as the number 1 target for quarterback Matt Stafford for the remainder of the season.
Cooper Kupp has seen a one-point increase in his Madden 22 Rating in Weeks 2-5 to go from a 87 to 90 overall rating. After two weeks of not seeing a ratings increase, Kupp’s production led to a 91 overall for Weeks 8-13 of the regular season.
The injury of Woods led to on-field production that reflected in a 92 rating overall in Week 12 and a 94 overall rating by Week 18. By the end of the regular season, Kupp saw his Madden rating improve from an 86 overall in the game’s launch rating to a 94 overall at the end of Week 18. The greatest increase came in the catching category, which began with a 90 overall at launch and rose three points to a 98 overall.
In three postseason games, Kupp recorded 25 receptions for a total of 386 yards and 4 touchdowns. During the Wild Card Playoff Game versus the Arizona Cardinals, Kupp recorded 5 receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown. Versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Divisional Round, Kupp recorded 9 receptions for 183 yards and a touchdown. His most spectacular performance of the playoffs came versus the San Francisco 49ers, recording 11 receptions for 142 yards and 2 touchdowns. This performance led to the Rams winning an NFC Championship title, appearance in Super Bowl LVI against the Cincinnati Bengals and the rise of his Madden 22 rating over the last month.
After beginning the NFL Playoffs with a 95 rating based on his performance in the Wild Card round, moving up to a 96 overall after the Divisional Round, and sitting at a 97 overall from his performance in the NFC Championship game a great performance by Kupp in Super Bowl LVI will allow him to join the coveted “99 Club” in Madden.
Kupp’s latest rating increase has him set as both the third-highest overall rated wide receiver in Madden 22 and player on the Rams.
