You can find my full projections from June here.

 

Surprises:

  • It’s been said to death, but Darnell Mooney is at least an 80 overall player. I guessed he’d be an 81 and right in that 81-82 range is where I’d put him. He’s put in enough quality years to earn it. He is not a 1 and does not make a game wrecking impact, so I wouldn’t push him up to the mid-80s. But he deserve a bump.
  • Eddie Jackson dropped even more precipitously than I had expected- it’s hard to say he doesn’t deserve it, but I did not see that coming.
  • Roquan’s grade caused much consternation- perhaps he deserved a one point bump to 90, but I am largely alright with that rating. They have hm play WILL a la Darius Leonard, which is interesting and also means his rating will be lower at MIKE by a point or two.
  • Dante Pettis going up from his beginning and end of season rating last eyar is insane to me. There’s a real shot he doesn’t even make this team- how is he a the third best receiver by rating?
  • Joe Thomas’s rating is surprising and likely a veteran handout. In franchise mode he likely Is not starting for me, or being kept longer than this year. I also suspect that to be the case in real life.
  • That DT spot is brutal but fair.
  • I thought the Bears would receive a little bump to even out how rough the roster would be by last year’s ratings. They didn’t, and are one of the 5 worst teams in Madden with a 75 OVR offense and a 69 OVR defense.
  • Notable traits for Rookies
    • Jaquan Brisker’s 87 Hit Power makes him a real hit stick enforcer on this defense
    • Kyler Gordon’s speed is underwhelming, but his agility, change of direction, and jumping are top tier for a corner.
    • Velus Jones Jr.’s Madden speed and acceleration is legit, but his low agility, change of direction, spectacular catch and route running in the short and intermediate makes him a difficult in game play on anything other than go balls, which I think is reflective of real life. His return, however, is far too low at 79.
