Top 10 Quarterbacks in Madden NFL 21

EA Sports has revealed the ratings for the top 10 QBs in Madden 21.


Ahead of its release every year, EA Sports reveals the player ratings for Madden NFL, usually sparking passionate debates among fans. Well, it’s that time again as the ratings for Madden 21 have started to roll out. There’s a lot to unpack, so we’re going to start with the guys under center. Let’s take a look at the top 10 quarterbacks in Madden 21.

Top 10 QBs in Madden 21

  • Patrick Mahomes - 99
  • Russel Wilson - 97
  • Lamar Jackson - 94
  • Drew Brees - 93
  • Tom Brady - 90
  • Aaron Rodgers - 89
  • Matt Ryan - 87
  • Deshaun Watson - 86
  • Carson Wentz - 84
  • Dak Prescott - 84

Patrick Mahomes stands atop the rankings as the highest rated quarterback in Madden 21. Fresh off of a Super Bowl victory, as well as a record-breaking $500 million dollar contract, Mahomes joins Madden’s sacred 99 club. 

Eight years after being drafted to the NFL, Russel Wilson gets his highest overall rating yet at a 97. Wilson had a career year in 2019, driving the Seahawks to the second round of the playoffs. You could argue that Wilson made a great case for MVP, had it not been for the explosive performances put on by Lamar Jackson.

Speaking of Lamar Jackson, the Ravens QB comes in at a 94 overall in Madden 21, a massive jump from the 76 overall rating that he was given in Madden 20. The unanimous league MVP had a season that fans will be talking about for years to come. One that was impressive enough to earn him a spot on the cover of Madden 21

Some other notable entries in the top 10 include rival QBs Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott tying at an 84 overall. Newly signed Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady managed to attain a 90 overall, despite the Patriot’s offensive struggles down the stretch.
