Saquon Barkley’s Madden 21 rating is a complete joke! I’m upset, Saquon Barkley is my favorite player and deserves more respect! At first, EA Sports had Barkley ranked as an 89 overall, 89! Are you kidding me! Also, this ranks Barkley as the seventh-highest rated running back in Madden, trust me, he’s better than all of them.
Top 10 RBs in Madden 21:
Christian McCaffery: 99
Derrick Henry: 93
Nick Chubb: 92
Ezekiel Elliot: 92
Dalvin Cook: 91
Aaron Jones: 90
Joe Mixon: 89
Saquon Barkley: 89
Josh Jacobs: 88
Alvin Kamara: 88

The New York Giants’ star running back didn’t have the best 2019 season but, he still put up 1,000 rushing yards while missing three games. Surprisingly, Aaron Jones is ranked higher than Saquon, Jones played all 16 games and only had 80 more rushing yards than Saquon! Also, both Green Bay and Minestioa have much better offensive lines than the Giants do. Saquon creates more opportunities than any other back in the league, his offensive line has been a dumpster fire in his first two seasons.
Barkley’s skill set is unmatched
There are a lot of great running backs in the NFL but, Saquon’s game is just different. He can jump over you, juke around you, put you in a spin cycle, and lower the shoulder on defenders. Again, name a man who is 235 pounds and runs a 4.41 40-yard dash, I’ll wait. After all, Saquon is in great company with one of the best running backs of all time, Barry Sanders.
Despite missing 3 games in 2019 Saquon Barkley is in ELITE company.
In their first 2 seasons, only 2 players in NFL history have accumulated at least 20 total TD, 3,400 scrimmage yds in under 625 touches.

Finally, Saquon Barkley is getting more respect. It did not take long for EA Sports to fix the star running backs rating, a lot of Giants’ fans were furious, I was one of them. After all, Barkley’s Madden rating went up to a 91 overall, this is what I like to see. However, I think Saquon should be a 96-97 overall, he’s just that good and does it with a weak offensive line. Furthermore, if the Giants’ offensive line improves watch out, Saquon will be joining the 99 club soon.

Overall, Saquon is going to earn his respect, he doesn’t need a video game overall to prove himself. I see a big season coming for Saquon, all the haters will be silenced in 2020. Lastly, Saquon is a freak of nature, he will have a big season and he will be getting a Madden upgrade halfway through the 2020 season, trust me.
