Madden 24 overall ratings list with the top 50 players

Justin Jefferson is a winner on the Madden 24 overall ratings list despite an injury-plagued season. The Vikings' star receiver kicked off Madden 24 as its second-best player, with only Rams sack machine Aaron Donald ahead of him. Below we profile a selection of this year's best players, and take you through the overall top 50 to finish. GR's Madden 24 overall ratings guide is correct as of the Gridiron sim's default roster.

1 Aaron Donald (RE, LA Rams) - 99

Former team-mate Jalen Ramsey recently called Donald the best defensive player in NFL history. The end-of-season rankings for Madden 23 reflected that, affording Donald the highest possible score and attributes that made him marginally superior to fellow Madden 23 99 Club members. Another 99 in Madden 24 is locked in, ahead of what some speculate will be Donald’s final season clattering opposition QBs.

2 Justin Jefferson (WR, Minnesota) - 99

Minnesota's outstanding receiver hotshots into not only the 99 Club, but second spot in the entire game – an incredible reward for two astonishing seasons in Minneapolis. Standout ratings include 92 speed, 93 acceleration, 98 catching (duh!) and 99 awareness.

3 Patrick Mahomes (QB, Kansas City) - 99

There’s be no third box appearance for this year’s Super Bowl winning quarterback. Instead, Buffalo Bills signal caller Josh Allen won the internal Madden 24 cover vote. However, Allen can't overhaul Mahomes from a numbers perspective. As well as being assured of elite attributes for both passing and elusiveness, Perfect Pat’s one-handed diving throw animation is perfectly captured. In real and virtual life, he remains the QB to beat.

4 Travis Kelce (TE, Kansas City) - 99

Independent site Madden Ratings had the pass-snaffling tight end on target for top spot ahead of Madden 24. He's actually ranked fourth, but still with a tantalising 99 overall rating. Going by his season-ending smack talk he’d also fit right in on the WWE 2K23 roster.

7 Myles Garrett (RE, Cleveland) - 98

While retirement rumors swirl around Aaron Donald every offseason, fellow defensive end Garrett looks set to dominate for years to come. In 2022 he racked up 16 sacks, 37 solo tackles, and two forced fumbles, which will surely be sufficient to earn another massive OVR of 98 this year.

9 Trent Williams (LT, San Francisco) - 98

Not only is the 49ers’ left tackle on track for another huge individual year, but San Francisco also occupies a deserved spot on our Madden 24 best teams list. Other offensive lineman challenging Williams for best-in-show credentials are Dallas guard Zack Martin, and Philadelphia tackle Lane Johnson.

10 Tyreek Hill (WR, Miami) - 98

Mahomes’ former team-mate transformed the Dolphins offense under Mike McDaniel, cruising to 1,710 yards and seven touchdowns. That saw Hill earn an attributes upgrade in Week 10, nudging up from 97 to an almost imperious 98. Wondering why there aren’t any newcomers joining Hill here? EA keeps draftee ratings low – but you can see how we reckon Bryce Young and company will fare in GR’s Madden 24 rookie ratings guide.

11 Davante Adams (WR, Las Vegas) - 97

Adams kicked off last season as another 99 Club member, but lost one OVR point over the course of the season – and looks like just missing out on a return to that elite crew. Vegas’ star receiver faces an intriguing campaign on the real turf with new addition Jimmy Garoppolo under center, but we still expect him to edge ahead of Tyreek Hill, Cooper Kupp and Stefon Diggs as the game’s highest-rated wideout.
