Madden 24 launch ratings have been a pleasant surprise to an eventful month. Throughout the week, fans gained insight on which NFL players will dominate the digital gridiron. Aaron Donald, Zack Martin, Travis Kelce and Justin Jefferson are the only players that received a 99 overall. Their reputation on the field will transcend into the game, forcing opponents to bring their best.
Here are a few players gamers will enjoy playing with in Madden 24.
Madden NFL 24 Player #5: Christian McCaffery
The San Francisco 49ers should be a favorable team for users in Madden 24. Injuries at quarterback derailed a promising season last year, but it seems like Kyle Shanahan’s roster is back in tack. Deebo Samuels, George Kittle, and Brandon Aiyuk aided in Brock Purdy’s development. Christian McCaffery had an impressive season as well. He ranked second in Pro Football Focus’ offensive rating (90.4) among running backs and will have a promising year.
Escaping from defenders in small spaces has helped San Francisco’s veteran rusher experience success as a professional. Lateral quickness and acceleration are hard traits for incoming tacklers to account for. In 2022, McCaffery earned a 32.5% breakaway rating. His efforts are reflected in the virtual gridiron this season. McCaffery has a 91 speed, 93 acceleration, and a 96 agility rating – making him an elite rusher for gamers this year.
