The NFL pre-season starts today, giving fans an early look at how their favorite teams stand to measure up on the field. But with all the trades and free agent signings of the offseason, it can be hard to keep track of the top talent that's about to start suiting up.
Luckily, "Madden 20," the most popular football game on the planet, has rated more than 3,000 NFL players and overhauled the rosters of all 32 NFL teams ahead of the 2019 season. "Madden" ratings judge players based on more than 50 specific attributes, using a mix of statistics and game film.
The creators of "Madden NFL 20" said they want the game to feel more realistic this season, leading to lower ratings overall and larger skill gaps between superstars and average players. The game's highest possible rating is 99 points, but only a select few players make it into the coveted "99 Club" each year. "Madden" ratings are updated every week during the season, so there's a chance that some players could see their stock rise as the season gets underway.
"Madden NFL 20" will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 2. You can get access to the game three days early by joining EA's Origin Access Premier or by preordering the $80 Superstar Edition.
