Here are the best players in the game based on the ratings that actually matter so you can find possible sleepers that other guys would trade for minimal value. We combined the ratings into position specific category’s giving single number, that I then turned into grades and combined them to get a ranking.

I have been playing football games since 99’. All starting with the NFL Game Day demo and NFL Blitz on PlayStation, then I moved on to Madden for the next 5 years, where I really didn't know what I was going yet. I flirted with NFL 2K for a year, but have played Madden and NCAA (up until its demise last year) ever since steadily improving my game each year and developing a passion for the X’s and O’s part of football.
