Madden NFL 18’s player ratings for this season have come out. Find out where your favorite Tennessee Titans players rank now.
If you’re a football fan, odds are you play or have played a Madden NFL video game at some point in your life. While the gameplay itself is where the fun lies, checking out player ratings can be just as fulfilling, or enraging if your favorite players are underrated. With Madden NFL 18 around the corner, the player ratings for every team has dropped.
Madden-School has accumulated every team’s player ratings, and your Tennessee Titans are no exception. Click through to see how your favorite Titans players have been ranked for the 2017 season.
Here are some interesting ratings that stand out.
Even though some football analytics sites consider the Titans’ offensive line to be the best in football, the Dallas Cowboys got all the love by the Madden team. Zack Martin (95), Tyron Smith (94) and Travis Frederick (93) all rank within the top five offensive linemen in the game. But for the Titans, all five starting offensive linemen rank within the team’s top 15 players, with the only gripe being a bit of a low rating for the Titans’ left tackle.
Taylor Lewan, LT: 88 overall
Jack Conklin, RT: 86 overall
Ben Jones, C: 83 overall
Quinton Spain, LG: 81 overall
Josh Kline, RG: 80 overall

Given that Madden usually rates based on reputation and general national consensus, it’s no surprise that the Titans’ starting quarterback is underrated. Mariota is just an 80 overall, with his throw accuracy being 80 as well, even though he’s been one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the league since coming in. Carson Wentz is a 79 overall, Alex Smith is an 81 overall and Sam Bradford is an 83 overall, so don’t get too furious about Mariota’s rating.
Fifth overall pick Corey Davis was given his due, earning an initial 79 overall rating, which ranks sixth in the 2017 draft class. Eighteenth overall pick Adoree’ Jackson didn’t fare as well, though, coming in at 27th with a 74 overall rating. His speed is just 92, which is a bit surprising. Taywan Taylor is a surprising 77 overall and Jonnu Smith shares a 74 overall rating with Jackson.
It’s safe to say the Madden ratings experts got it right with this one. DeMarco Murray drew a 91 overall rating, which ranks fourth of all running backs in the game. Backup Derrick Henry showed out with limited touches during his rookie season and sits with a cool 79 overall rating.
Am I really going to get upset because the Titans’ kicker and punter are unjustly rated? Yes. Ryan Succop was one of the best kickers in the league last season and Brett Kern has been a top five punter in the NFL over the past half-decade, yet they are rated at 82 and 78 overall, respectively.
We’ve talked about Jackson and Logan Ryan is ranked as he should be at 86 overall, but Brice McCain and LeShaun Sims are shocking. McCain is a 78 overall despite getting toasted a good amount last season, while Sims, who was impressive down the stretch, is a 68 overall. Sixty eight. Backup kicker Jordan Gay is rated higher than him.
In conclusion, don’t get too riled up over these ratings. The people that rate players can’t watch every football game of every team, so certain players will always be overlooked. Except for Mariota being an 80 overall. That is slander and libel.
