This past Tuesday EA Sports released the ratings of all the players of the last version of their acclaim franchise of video games Madden 19. Is not a surprise that this version of the game joins the pessimism that many of the “specialize” media members and the gamblers of Las Vegas have for the Dolphins for this season.
The highest offensive player rated is Josh Sitton with an overall rate of 88 follow by Danny Amendola with a rate of 85. If we make the breakdown by position unit we’ll see that the overall way to describe the offense is mediocre.
The return of Ryan Tannehill from two knee injuries doesn’t carry a lot of enthusiasm from the programmers of the game, he has a rating of 78, the definition of mediocrity. It doesn’t change for the running backs since Kenyan Drake, Frank Gore and rookie Kalen Ballage have an 82, 76 and 71 rating respectively.
We all know the changes that the wide receiver unit suffered with the loss of Jarvis Landry and the additions of Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson, being the first one the highest receiver rated as we mentioned before, the two receivers that are projected to start for the team, Kenny Stills and Devante Parker have a Madden rating of 84 and 81 rate respectively, while Wilson has a 77 overall rate and Jakeem Grant is the lowest rated receiver of the group that is potentially making the team with an overall rate of 73.
Mike Gesicki and AJ Derby have the same overall rate of 77, nothing to write home about.
The Offensive Line follows the same narrative, excluding Josh Sitton and Ja’wuan James with 84, the unit is rated as mediocre to bad with the underrated Jesse Davis being the lowest rated player of the potential starting line with 66.
As we can see are not very high expectations for the Dolphins’ offense this season by this video games franchise but one thing that is not put in consideration is the genius of Adam Gase and his offense that for the first time is build the way he wants. Let’s hope the players and the coaching staff proof them wrong.
