The Cardinals running back, David Johnson, had a breakout year last season that halted any doubts that he is anything less than a top three back in the league and among the highest rated RBs in Madden 18.
While maybe not as feared now as they were a few years ago, the Seahawks secondary is still a force to be reckoned with and Thomas III figures to be an important part of that squad this coming season and in Madden 18.
Kelce is arguably the most dynamic catching TE in the league not named Rob Gronkowski and even then, at least Kelce can stay on the field. The best ability is availability folks and that’s reflected in his Madden 18 player rating.
Aqib Talib is consistently been one of the best corners in the league on one of the best defenses in the league, so it’s no surprise he has such a great Madden 18 player rating.
Eric Berry is the highest paid safety in the league as of now, and for very good reason. He’s among the best defensive players on one of the best defensive squads in the NFL and has a great player rating this year.
Along with Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr. anchors the Bronco’s fearsome secondary.
The Cowboys QB success over recent years is largely thanks to their excellent offensive line led by Tyron Smith.
A.J. Green continues his hall of fame career and is still one of the best Wide Receivers in the league despite working with arguably average Quarterback play.
Brandon Graham continues to live up to his first round draft pick status and is one of the best ends in the league.
Kam recently signed a fat new contract extension and should be focused and ready to go for the 2017-2018 season.
Another excellent Left Tackle, Trent Williams, is high up this list of the highest rated Madden NFL 18 players, showing the importance of solid offensive line play.
We’ll have to see how Matt Ryan recovers from last season’s brutal Super Bowl throw, but EA Sports at least rewarded him with a solid 96 rating.
Yet another offensive lineman cracks the top 25 player ratings. Yanda is responsible keeping Joe Flacco upright and has done it well enough to earn a solid 96 player rating.
Despite suspension and hold out threats, Le’Veon Bell is still one of the best running backs in the league and Madden, if not the best, which is reflected in his 97 player rating.
Khalil Mack is the lone player from the resurgent Raiders to crack the top 25 and it’s well deserved. Mack is a beast.
Antonio Brown is often lumped in with a certain Falcons WR as among the best in the league and it’s reflected in his 97 Madden 18 player rating.
J.J. Watt keeps QBs from getting a proper night’s sleep when he’s healthy.
He may have a hard time staying on the field, but when healthy, he’s arguably the most potent non-QB offensive weapon in the league.
Even despite make the Super Bowl the other day, Kuechly still probably doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. Well at least, EA Sports does we guess with that 98 player rating.
Public drama hopefully behind him, expect Aaron Rodgers to look more like the second half of last season in 2017-2018.
The Falcons have been up and down over the last few seasons, but Julio Jones hasn’t. He earns the right to be called the highest rated WR in Madden 18.
Another player that is destined for Canton, he alongside Aaron Donald are the two highest rated defensive players in Madden 18 this year.
Shocker right? Just kidding. Despite turning 40 recently, Tom Brady will continue to make his case for being the greatest of all time.
David Johnson, Cardinals, HB - 94
