Courtland Sutton's Madden 21 Rating is Disrespectful

Courtland Sutton is coming off an incredible 2019 campaign. The Denver Broncos' wideout singlehandedly carried the team's passing attack, racking up 1,112 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns despite being saddled with some sub-par quarterback play.

But it doesn't seem like Sutton has quite gotten the respect he deserves yet. The latest iteration of the "Madden" video game franchise is releasing in late August, and Sutton is rated much lower than some Broncos' fans might've hoped.

Sutton has been rated an 84 in the game, putting him tied for the 27th-best receiver in the league. The idea that Sutton isn't even a top-25 receiver in the league right now is ridiculous.

He's been given the same rating as Robby Anderson and Alshon Jeffery, and he outproduced both players by a pretty significant margin last year.

If Sutton can replicate what he did last season, hopefully his "Madden" rating will finally start to reflect just how talented he really is.
