Colts Madden-style player ratings — End of Season Recap

Syndication: Florida Times-Union Bob Self/Florida Times-Union / USA TODAY NETWORK

The Madden ratings series is back for a 2nd season!!! In this series on Stampede Blue, I’m going to break down each player on a 50-100 Madden-style scale each week to help identify and illustrate which players are the best and most valuable players on the team. Please take note that these are current values and don’t take into account the value or future potential (or regression) of a player. Here is a breakdown of the tiers:

Tiers

95 to 100 — One of the 3 or 4 best players at his position in the NFL

90 to 94 — An elite, top 10 NFL player at his position in the NFL

85 to 89 — A borderline elite player who will make plenty of plays in each game

80 to 84 — An above-average starter

75 to 79 — An average starter

70 to 74 — An average starter who should only be used in small spurts

65 to 69 — A below-average starter and above-average backup

60 to 64 — An average backup

60 or below — A borderline roster player

Biggest Risers

Jonathan Taylor (13 Point Gain)

Taylor played like an MVP this season and was the driving force of the Colts offense.

Michael Pittman Jr (8 Point Gain)

Pittman took a massive step forward this season and proved that he could eventually become a star in this league.

Matt Pryor (8 Point Gain)

Pryor showed great flashes as a starter and could become a full-time left tackle for the Colts in 2022.

Biggest Fallers

TY Hilton (10 Point Drop)

Hilton clearly isn’t the same player he used to be and his impact on the field has completely diminished.

Xavier Rhodes (8 Point Drop)

Rhodes, exactly like Hilton, clearly isn’t the same player he used to be and his impact on the field has completely diminished.

Eric Fisher (8 Point Drop)

Fisher’s achilles clearly hindered him throughout the course of the season and he was an abysmal left tackle for the Colts in 2021.
