There’s a ton of excitement surrounding the arrival of Justin Fields in Chicago, where he has a chance to become the Bears’ first superstar quarterback in franchise history. And it’s clear that the folks of Madden 22 feel the same.
Madden 22 ratings have started to trickle out, where Allen Robinson was the 10th-highest rated wide receiver. Rookie ratings were also revealed, where Fields was among the top 10 rookies.
Fields tied with fellow rookie quarterback Trey Lance with a 74 overall rating, which was the fifth-best among rookies. Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts led the pack with an 81 rating while Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence led quarterbacks with a 78 rating.
Earlier this offseason, some top rookie quarterbacks took a swing at predicting their Madden 22 ratings. While most quarterbacks were too optimistic in their predictions — including Zach Wilson believing he’d get a 90 — Fields had a better grasp on how Madden ratings work, predicting his would be between 78 and 81.
When you look at the quarterbacks in this draft class, it’s silly that Wilson (75) landed ahead of Fields, who is the more proven and NFL-ready quarterback. But Fields will have a chance to increase his rating with an impressive rookie season.
While Fields currently sits at No. 2 on the depth chart behind Andy Dalton, Fields will have a chance to impress during training camp and preseason and perhaps pressure Matt Nagy to consider starting Fields, if he proves he’s ready.
