The top 10 highest rated Detroit Lions in Madden 19
Who are the ten highest rated Detroit Lions in the new football video game Madden 19? We reveal those names and wax poetic about their rankings.
Across the NFL, the Detroit Lions often don’t seem to get enough love. But what about in the virtual world?
Details about the newest edition of Madden (19), the highly popular football video game from Electronic Arts (EA), have leaked.How do Detroit’s players rating stack up?
According to Madden-School.com, here are the highest rated Lions players in Madden 19 …
- Darius Slay, CB – 89
- Marvin Jones Jr., WR – 86
- Glover Quin, FS – 85
- Golden Tate III, WR – 85
- Matthew Stafford, QB – 83
- Ezekiel Ansah, DE – 83
- Ameer Abdullah, RB – 82
- Theo Riddick, RB – 80
- Tavon Wilson Sr., SS – 80 (Source)
- Matt Prater, K – 79 (Source)
First, the positives. I love the fact Slay is rated as the top Lions’ player. He was the only one originally selected to the Pro Bowl and it was well deserved. Although, I wouldn’t be mad if they bump Slay up a point so he could be in the 90’s.
If there is any one rating to be upset about, it has to be about Stafford. With all apologies to Slay, the man under center is the top player in Detroit. Hands down. Stafford’s rating should be much higher than a lowly 83. I’d argue it should be just as high as their Pro Bowl cornerback.
Finally, I think most Lions’ fans wish Abdullah played as well as he is rated in Madden 19. If he did, then the Motor City wouldn’t have been the worst rushing team in the NFL last season. Maybe that 82 rating is projecting for his status as a special teams returner this season. Otherwise, it’s much too high. And has anyone seen LeGarrette Blount, Taylor Decker, T.J. Lang or Jarrad Davis anywhere?
