Madden 15 Best WR Ratings: Brandon Marshall at #2
Madden 15 ratings are arriving later today for the best tight ends and receivers in this year’s football video game from EA SPORTS, and while it’s hard to debate too much with just a top five list, there will certainly be much said about the fight for the second best receiver. Currently, that spot belongs to Chicago Bears wideout Brandon Marshall.
A blog revealing the top receivers is expected to arrive from EA shortly, but we’ve got the inside scoop on who is where.
With the Madden 15 ratings for top tight ends, rookies, running backs and quarterbacks already released, we now turn our focus to perhaps the most sought-after position among Madden gamers — the wide receiver. There’s a lot of talent in the top five this year, both in the game and in the NFL, and it’s always interesting to see what Madden NFL ratings czar Donny Moore has cooked up for fans in the offseason.
Madden 15 Ratings: Who’s Top 5 at Receiver?
So, who is sitting pretty in the top five of this year’s game at receiver? Calvin Johnson predictably takes the lead with a prestigious 99 overall rating following his incredibly 1,492 yard, 12 TD season on just 14 games. Meanwhile, Brandon Marshall’s admirable consistency as one of the best receivers in the league has allowed him to claim the number two spot at 96 overall, while young gun A.J. Green is right on his heels at 95. Wrapping up the top five is the ageless Andre Johnson (95 overall) and Dez Bryant (94 overall).
It’s hard to complain about any of these receivers being in the top five, but picking and then ordering them correctly is certainly a challenge for any fan. Who do you think belongs where in the top Madden 15 ratings for receivers? Hopefully one of them will be playable in the Madden 15 demo this year.
Check out the latest Madden 15 ratings below, then let us know in the comments what you think: Did EA get the ratings right this year? Is there anyone outside of the top five you would put in, and who are you taking out if that’s the case?
