Every year there are some notable changes to players within Madden, and throughout the NFL season, we got to witness some breakout players who should be getting a massive upgrade this time around.
Madden has been the premier football game since they debuted the series over 20 years ago, and EA is gearing up to release their biggest title yet with Madden 22. Coming off a couple of decent years, this should be the year EA takes the next step forward with the series.
With changes to Franchise, Face of the Franchise, and overall gameplay changes already announced, we’re yet to know the ratings for all the top players and rookies for Madden 22.
But, we can speculate on how some of the faces of the game will be rated this year.
