And if you’ll recall, we already brought you the initial ratings of the Indianapolis Colts’ 2019 NFL Draft class in Madden NFL 20, which comes out on Aug. 2 (you can pre-order by clicking here), but now it’s time to learn the initial ratings of the rest of the guys on the squad.
So without further ado, here are the Colts veterans‘ initial Madden NFL 20 ratings — and, to add a little perspective, their final Madden NFL 19 ratings, if applicable (note: not all veterans on the Colts‘ 90-man offseason roster currently have a Madden NFL 20 rating, and Luke Rhodes, as a long snapper, is rated in the game as a tight end):
There are only four 99 overall players (Aaron Donald, DeAndre Hopkins, Khalil Mack and Bobby Wagner). Patrick Mahomes takes the best QB spot (97 overall) with Todd Gurley being the best RB (97 overall) and Hopkins being the best WR (99 overall).
The Eagles have the best overall team rating (89) with the Dolphins being the worst overall team (74).
The scenarios and the XP they generate are cross over into the regular Franchise mode (as do the abilities), but these additions don’t transform the areas that have needed updating for years. Free agency and the draft are boring. The sim engine can’t tabulate realistic game or season stats or trade intelligently. The teams and the league as a whole are void of the intrigue and machinations that fans love. Contracts’ total dollar amounts are more realistic, but with simple signing mechanisms and A.I. that can’t manage its own rosters correctly, this is a minor improvement.
The one positive facet of Franchise mode is that scouting is more interesting due to a stretch in player ratings (meaning even players rated in the 70s are useful) and the fact that players can develop into superstars and X-Factors with appropriate abilities. These players’ development trait is hidden during the draft, and since the A.I. scouts more in line with users’ own tendencies, there’s more competition for the good players. Click Here
