Davante Adams is the best wide receiver in the NFL. Green Bay Packers fans already knew that. Now the rest of the league does.

And he’s now the top-rated wide receiver in this year’s “Madden” video game.

Ahead of the release of “Madden NFL 22”, EA Sports has revealed many of their wide receiver ratings for this year’s game.

Not only is Adams the top-rated receiver in the game, but he’s also part of the “99 Club”, the only receiver to achieve this in this year’s game.

DeAndre Hopkins of the Arizona Cardinals and Tyreek Hill of the Kansas City Chiefs are just behind Adams with an overall rating of 98. Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs has a 97 overall rating. It’s hard to argue with the ratings of the top wide receivers in the league. Adams is deservedly in the top spot and part of the “99 Club”.

Adams has the best release of any wide receiver in football, so it’s no surprise to see he’s got a 99 rating in that category, too. He’s also been given a 99 for catching and short route running, with a 98 rating in awareness, spectacular catch, and medium route running.

In other words, Adams is going to be fun to throw passes to in this year’s video game.

Adams is deservedly the top receiver in this year’s game. No wide receiver in the NFL could come close to him last season. Adams was wide open on just about every play, set a new Packers franchise record for receptions, and also led the league with an incredible 18 touchdowns despite missing two full games and half of another in the regular season.

Adams was named a first-team All-Pro and a Pro Bowler last year. It was a career-best season.

Huge congratulations to Davante Adams for making the “99 Club”. Here’s to another dominant season with the Packers in 2021.
