While Madden is often hesitant to give talented second-year players high ratings in the event that the prior season was a fluke, Sauce Gardner getting a 93 rating shows that certain players are capable of breaking the mold. Wilson topped 1,100 yards despite a rotating door under center impacting him.

On top of the fact that Brandon Aiyuk, Michael Pittman Jr., and even Odell Beckham Jr. were among the names ranked higher than him, they were ranked above Wilson despite the fact that he was putting up these numbers amid the worst quarterback situation in the entire league.

Wilson's numbers should only increase now that Aaron Rodgers has officially moved to New York and become the next Jets quarterback. Gone are the days of Zach Wilson holding the ball too long and overthrowing him in the few moments when he did get it off quickly.

Such a season would only make Wilson more of a household name, as he spent all of last year proving that he was the best rookie wide receiver in a glass that promises to be full of game-changers.

The fact that Madden couldn't see his true talent is a genuine shame.
