2. Wide Receiver Kenny Golladay

Perhaps the most disrespectful rating on the Lions team is the one given to Golladay. Despite dominating all season long, including having eight games in which he played with very sub-par quarterback play, he was still given just an 86 overall by the Madden 21 evaluators.

That puts him on the level with the likes of Juju Smith-Schuster and Robert Woods, both of whom he outperformed last year. It also ranks him behind T.Y. Hilton, Julian Edelman, Emmanuel Sanders, and others that have no business being ranked above him.

Golladay pulled in 11 touchdowns last year en route to 1,190 receiving yards and 18.3 yards per reception. He was a big catch magnet and was ultra-reliable for whatever quarterback he had throwing to him. He has gotten better every season he’s been on the field and looks to be just tapping into his potential as of now.

Golladay had over 11 touchdowns and over 1,100 yards receiving and every other wide-out to do that before Madden 20 was released was given a grade of 90 or better. Both his stats and his on-field play merited at least a 90 overall grade in Madden 21.
