On Monday, Madden 22 revealed the ratings for the top 10 wide receivers. To no one’s surprise, a few players took issue with their madden ratings. Minnesota Vikings’, Justin Jefferson, has joined that list of players. Earlier today, Madden 22 released the ratings of the wide receivers out of the top 10. The Vikings star doesn’t even crack the top 15.
Did Madden 22 Snub Jefferson?
The 11-20 list of wide receivers are as follows:
- DK Metcalf- Seattle Seahawks- 89 Overall
- Terry McLaurin- Washington Football Team- 89 Overall
- Odell Beckham Jr.- Cleveland Browns- 89 Overall
- Calvin Ridley- Atlanta Falcons- 88 Overall
- Tyler Lockett- Seattle Seahawks- 88 Overall
- Adam Thielen- Minnesota Vikings- 88 Overall
- Justin Jefferson- Minnesota Vikings- 87 Overall
- Robby Anderson- Carolina Panthers- 87 Overall
- Robert Woods- Los Angeles Rams- 87 Overall
- Chris Godwin- Tampa Bay Buccanneers- 87 Overall
In an interview with Gabe Henderson of Vikings.com, Jefferson voiced his frustration with being rated too low in Madden 22. “I play Madden,” he said. “I’m a big gamer. So I’m into all of that. And after I seen the ratings and me not being in the top 10 in any of the ratings, that’s just crazy to me.” He added the snub will be “motivation” going into the upcoming season.
Jefferson does have a solid case in being ranked higher. During the 2020 season, he broke Randy Moss’ reception record for a rookie and had the most receiving yards for a rookie, surpassing Anquan Boldin. He and Chase Young of the Washington Football Team were the only two rookies named to the 2021 pro-bowl. Many feel that Jefferson should’ve won offensive rookie of the year over Justin Herbert.
Once the season begins, we will have to wait and see how Jefferson performs. If he has a season better than his rookie season, Madden 22 will definitely raise his overall.
