As the 2020 NFL season approaches, here are the top five players on the Atlanta Falcons according to ratings given on Madden 21.
As it does annually leading up to the start of the upcoming season, Madden 21 recently released the full list of player ratings going into the new NFL year, including the full roster for the Atlanta Falcons as they hope to bounce back during the 2020 campaign in real life.
With Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson as the cover athlete on the cover of Madden 21 this year, the game will be released to users on Aug. 25 to get them excited and ready for actual football to begin later on in the calendar year.
Five NFL players were among the elite in the 99 Club awarded by Madden, with those players being Los Angeles Rams defensive end Aaron Darnold, Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey, New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
That’s a distinct group of superstars from throughout the league who are hard to argue that they deserve that strong distinction from EA Sports. No Falcons players managed to land in the exclusive 99 Club, but two players cracked the 90-or-above rating mark while eight players were ranked 80 or above for Atlanta.
Before the real version of NFL football begins later this calendar year, let’s dive into he top Falcons player ratings on Madden 21 prior to the virtual version of the game being released to the public in August.
