EA Sports released its Madden 20 player ratings earlier today. Here’s what they look like for the New York Jets.

If you’re a football fan, you know what Madden is. The annually released NFL game is among the most well known games in the entire video game industry. Today, they released their full list of player and team ratings, including the Jets.

It’s been quite a long time since the Jets were a good team to play with on Madden. Last year, their initial rating of 74 overall was the lowest in the game. They’ve been at the bottom of the Madden power rankings for too long, and now, they’re finally making at least some progress. Madden 20 gave the Jets a 78 overall for this season, which ranks at 27th in the game. Definitely not a rating to be proud of, but it’s a step in the right direction.

The Jets at least have some players that you want to play with this year. Le’Veon Bell is tied for the third highest rated running back in the game at 92 overall. C.J. Mosley, another star offseason acquisition, is the fifth highest rated middle linebacker in the game at 87 overall. Quinnen Williams was the highest rated rookie in the game as well at 80 overall.

Jamal Adams’ 2018 campaign was incredible. He earned his first Pro Bowl appearance, performing like a top 3 safety in football. His rating of 90 is the third highest at the strong safety position, and feels a little low. He’s the second highest rated Jet, behind only Le’Veon Bell.

The ratings for many quarterbacks dropped this year, likely due to Madden trying to make the game and performance drop-offs more realistic. Sam Darnold went down an overall, dropping to a rating of 74 in Madden 20.

No, this doesn’t mean EA thinks Darnold got worse in his rookie year. Josh Allen also went down to a 74 overall. Lamar Jackson went up to a 76 overall, primarily due to his high speed rating. Baker Mayfield flew to an 82 overall after his strong rookie season. Darnold’s rating is disappointing, but I’d expect it to increase throughout the season.

Overall, the Jets’ player ratings are mostly fair. There are a couple of players who I think deserve to go up a couple of overall’s, but I’m sure they’ll change over the course of the season. Here are the Jets’ 30 best players in Madden 20:

Le’Veon Bell – 92
