Top 5 QBs

As NFL teams ready up for training camp, see which quarterbacks are tops at their position according to Madden.

Madden NFL 20 Ratings

For some quarterbacks, a top-five rating in Madden is the result of years of proven and consistent success on the NFL field. For others, like Patrick Mahomes, it took just one off-the-charts season to skyrocket to the top of his position in terms of Madden 20 ratings. Plus, he’s the cover athlete, so that helps. Either way, with the introduction of Superstar X-Factors in Madden 20, the QB position will never be the same. Without further ado, here are your top-five rated quarterbacks in Madden NFL 20. 

Top 5 QBs

Patrick Mahomes | 97 OVR

It’s no surprise that the Madden 20 cover athlete is the highest-rated quarterback in the game. Patrick Mahomes took the league by storm last season and won the NFL MVP thanks to his incredible display of athleticism, leadership, and unimaginable production. We all thought that Ravens QB Lamar Jackson might be the second-coming of 2004 Michael Vick in Madden. But it looks like that torch has been passed to Mahomes instead. Good luck defending against Mahomes and his Chiefs this season in Madden. (Hint: You can’t.)

Notable Ratings:        

  • 96 Throw Power
  • 97 Throw Under Pressure
  • 97 Throw On The Run 

Superstar X-Factor Zone Ability | Bazooka

When his Bazooka Zone Ability is activated, Mahomes’ generational arm strength will be in full effect, increasing his maximum throw distance by 15-plus yards, allowing him to stretch any defense to its breaking point.

 

Tom Brady | 96 OVR

The Madden NFL 18 cover athlete began last season in the 99 Club, but he was bounced due to a slow statistical start to the season. Well, Tom Brady led his Patriots to another Super Bowl victory, so all is well in GOAT land for now. Brady is getting older, entering his age 42 season, hence some question marks about how much longer he can hold up and continue to perform at a high level. But he’s still the most accurate QB in the game. 

Notable Ratings:      

  • 99 Throw Accuracy Short
  • 98 Throw Accuracy Mid
  • 99 Play Action
  • 99 Awareness

Superstar X-Factor Zone Ability | Pro Reads

When he enters the zone, Brady’s Pro Reads ability will highlight his first open receiver (while standing in the pocket).

 

Philip Rivers | 94 OVR

The Los Angeles Chargers’ iron man under center, Philip Rivers hasn’t missed a regular season game in thirteen years. He’s also averaged at least 4,300 pass yards and 30 touchdowns over the last six seasons. The Chargers are one of the highest-rated teams in Madden 20, and you’re going to see a lot more folks rolling out this team with Rivers, now equipped with Superstar X-Factor ability, at the helm. 

Notable Ratings:      

  • 99 Toughness
  • 96 Throw Under Pressure
  • 93 Throw Accuracy Deep
  • 98 Play Action

Superstar X-Factor Zone Ability | Fearless

Fearless QBs like Rivers are not intimidated by the pass rush. When he enters the zone, his passing accuracy is unaffected by defensive pressure.

 

Andrew Luck | 92 OVR

The brainy Colts signal-caller missed the 2017 season with a shoulder injury but returned last year to lead his team to a playoff run, racking up 39 touchdown passes along the way. The Colts offense is trending up, and Luck is the maestro of it all. It’s easy to forget about Luck’s legs, too. And you already know that whole deal about mobile QBs in Madden. 

Notable Ratings:      

  • 93 Throw On The Run
  • 83 Speed (highest among Top 5 QBs)
  • 92 Throw Accuracy Deep

Superstar X-Factor Zone Ability | Pro Reads

When he enters the zone, Luck’s Pro Reads ability will highlight his first open receiver (while standing in the pocket).

 

Drew Brees | 92 OVR  

Drew Brees fronts the highest-rated offense in Madden 20, and something tells us it’s going to be fun to play with Brees and his team in the game this year. Together with his two main offensive weapons, HB Alvin Kamara and WR Michael Thomas, Brees leads a dynamic trio of Superstar X-Factors that could become unstoppable when they enter the zone. 

Notable Ratings:      

  • 99 Throw Accuracy Short
  • 96 Play Action
  • 93 Throw Under Pressure

Superstar X-Factor Zone Ability | Fearless

Fearless QBs like Brees are not intimidated by the pass rush. When he enters the zone, his passing accuracy is unaffected by defensive pressure.
