Davante Adams is one of the best wide receivers in the “Madden 21” video game.

If you play as the Green Bay Packers in the “Madden 21” video game this season, you can feel confident throwing the football Davante Adams‘ way, no matter whether you’ve got Aaron Rodgers or Jordan Love at quarterback.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Adams has the fifth-highest rating among wide receivers in “Madden 21”. He has an overall rating of 94. He has a higher rating than some of the best receivers in the league such as Mike Evans, Odell Beckham Jr., and Keenan Allen.

After being Green Bay’s best receiving option since the 2016 season, his “Madden” rating will come as no surprise to Packers fans.

Davante Adams also in top 10 for catching

ESPN released a list of the top 10 receivers for catching rating in “Madden 21”. Again, Adams is among the best in the league with a 94 rating, tied for eighth-best with Robert Woods and Emmanuel Sanders.

Adams has improved his catching a lot in recent years after struggling with drops in 2015, but I’m most interested to see what his route-running and release ratings will be in the game. You can absolutely make an argument that he’s one of the best in the NFL in both categories.

Adams won’t win with speed too often, but he beats cornerbacks by putting them off-balance immediately from the snap of the football. He is dominant off the line of scrimmage and is also an excellent route-runner, regularly creating separation quickly and getting wide open.

Throwing his way in this year’s game will be a lot of fun. And despite the fact Aaron Rodgers’ overall rating was surprisingly below 90, just send the ball Adams’ way and he’ll likely be wide open and ready for the catch.

What are your thoughts on the wide receiver ratings in this year’s edition of the “Madden” video game? Should Adams be rated higher?
