Each year, Madden NFL unveils player ratings for all active NFL players. Ratings indicate how a player will perform on the virtual gridiron in Madden NFL based on their performance on the real NFL field. Ratings are decided by the Madden NFL Ratings Performance Adjustors, who calculate a number of ratings across every player – speed, awareness, strength, catching and many more – that come together for a final overall rating. Adjustors analyze player performances each week of the NFL season and make changes based on how well a player performed. NFL legends like Barry Sanders, Michael Vick, Steve Young and Chad Johnson have all leant their expertise to the Adjustors to land on players’ final ratings. EA SPORTS Madden NFL 21 launches worldwide on August 28, 2020.
