Madden 13: Top 10 Receivers and Tight Ends

Another week, and another position group getting their Madden 13 ratings revealed. This time, it’s the pass catchers. It should be no surprise that Calvin Johnson is the #1 player on the list, or that he’s got the highest possible rating in the game. He is on the cover.

The only real surprises here are the TEs Gronk is a great receiving threat, but as a TE he should also be grading on his blocking, which isn’t great. The Saint’s Jimmy Graham is less dynamic of a player, but is much more complete for his position. Vernon Davis is eternally overrated, but that’s nothing new. I can’t say I’m surprised that he is where he is.

No Seahawks on this list, but I can’t say I’m surprised. Only player who might be close to getting on here is Sydney Rice, and his injuries last season suppressed his stats enough that I don’t expect him to have elite ratings in this year’s game.

  1. Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions, 99 overall
  2. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots, 97 overall
  3. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals, 97 overall
  4. Andre Johnson, Houston Texans, 97 overall
  5. Vernon Davis, San Francisco 49ers, 95 overall
  6. Jimmy Graham, New Orleans Saints, 95 overall
  7. Steve Smith, Carolina Panthers, 95 overall
  8. Wes Welker, New England Patriots, 95 overall
  9. Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons, 94 overall
  10. Hakeem Nicks, New York Giants, 94 overall
