Madden 21: EA Should Be Fair To Bills QB Josh Allen!
Madden 21: EA Should Be Fair To Bills QB Josh Allen!

The NFL season is in full swing, and EA is doing a good job of adjusting ratings for Franchise Mode.

We have already seen Russell Wilson get juiced up to 98 OVR. Emmanuel Sanders lowered to 85 OVR. But one player that EA didn't adjust appropriately is Bills QB Josh Allen!

About Josh Allen

As the No. 7 overall pick in 2018, Allen's enormous arm strength is his strength. As a rookie, he started 11 games and threw more interceptions (12) than touchdowns (10).

His 2019 campaign was better though. The completion percentage jumped six points to 58.8%. He threw 20 TDs to just 9 INTs. This allowed him to obtain 77 OVR in Madden 21. This put him 20th among QBs. Since then, everything he has done is a mockery of that rating.

Madden 21 rating adjustments

So far, Russell Wilson has performed very well, his OVR has risen from 97 to 98. Aaron Rodgers has moved up two to 92 OVR, even Ryan Tannehill has grown by two. At the same time, Josh Allen has only 78 OVR and still ranks 20th in QBs, even though he has a good start to the 2020 season.

Allen's 2020 performance

In two games, Josh Allen has thrown for 727 yards and 6 touchdowns without any picks. He completed 70% of his passes and run for 76 yards and a score.

Of course, the caveat is that he has only faced the Jets and Dolphins so far.

Boost his accuracy!

Surprisingly, most of Allen's stats improvement in Madden 21 has come on his running ability. He's got +6 trucking since launch, +2 break tackle, and +1 ball carrier vision.

The only passing stats that have grown are deep accuracy (+1) and throw on the run (+1).

Despite throwing some amazing deep bombs he is just 41st in deep accuracy, even with that +1 boost.

Then there is his short accuracy (78) that is worse than players like Jarrett Stidham, CJ Beathard, and both his backups Matt Barkley and Jake Fromm.

EA is doing a nice job with regular adjustments, but they have been doing Josh Allen dirty.

In short, I hope EA can be fair to Allen, he deserves a higher OVR. If you have never used him, then I suggest you try it. Maybe you will get a surprise.
