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: Indianapolis Colts.
Quenton Nelson- 87
Nelson was selected with the sixth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and lived up to the hype as a rookie. He was on several highlight reels for his good blocking and even was named an All-Pro player. Madden didn’t recognize him well enough and gave him an 87 rating for his play.
His rating leaves him tied for the eighth-best guard in the game, which is way too low. Nelson deserves a massive ratings boost and should be rated as the second-best guard in the NFL, only behind Zack Martin of the Dallas Cowboys, who has a 96 rating.
Adjusted Rating- 94
Eric Ebron- 86
The Colts got more out of Ebron than the Lions did in the first few years of his career. With Andrew Luck’s help, Ebron caught 66 passes for 750 yards and 13 touchdowns. He received an 86 overall rating, which is solid, but not good enough given how well he played last season.
There are plenty of banged up tight ends who are ahead of Ebron. Tyler Eifert, Jordan Reed and Greg Olsen all haven’t been able to produce because they have battled injuries, but are ranked higher than Ebron. Ebron deserves to move up to their ratings.
Adjusted Rating- 88
Jack Doyle- 85
With Ebron’s emergence, Doyle has taken a little bit of a backseat. He was also injured and only able to play in six games. He had 26 catches for 245 yards and two touchdowns in 2018. The Colts will want to use both in 2019, but Doyle likely won’t have the production to live up to an 85 rating.
Doyle is currently rated the same as Kyle Rudolph of the Vikings and Austin Hooper of the Falcons, both of whom had healthier and better seasons than him. Doyle still deserves respect, as he had almost 700 receiving yards in 2017, but his 85 rating is a little too high.
Adjusted Rating- 83
Darius Leonard- 84
The Colts found an absolute gem in Leonard, who came from a small school in South Carolina State, to lead their defense. He led the NFL in tackles with 163 and even missed one game. The sky is the limit for Leonard’s future, but Madden only gave him a rating of 84.
There are plenty of linebackers rated ahead of Leonard, which shouldn’t be the case given how he played in 2017. He deserves to be one of the top linebackers in the game and should have his rating boosted quite a few points.
Adjusted Rating- 90
Anthony Walker- 69
How does a player with over 100 tackles get a rating of 69? While he isn’t one of the best linebackers in the game, Walker definitely did not deserve to be rated so poorly. He had 105 total tackles to go with four passes defended and one interception.
Walker does have his flaws, but he tackles well and should be given a boost to his rating. Eric Kendricks of the Minnesota Vikings has a similar stat line and was given a 78 rating. Walker comes up just short on some stats, but should be rated closer to Kendrick’s 78.
Adjusted Rating- 77
