The ratings for EA Sports’ Madden NFL 20 came out on Monday and NFL fans are all up in arms about their favorite teams’ standout players. SO-AND-SO IS ONLY A BLAH OVERALL? PHOOEY AND PSHAW.
While the overall (OVR) rating will be what is used to catch your eye, a player’s individual stats have to be looked at to see how that rating came about. For example: the OVR stat is weighted heavily by the awareness (AWR) stat. This is kind of an all-encompassing “good at football” ranking.
Every rookie has a lower OVR than their physical traits should add up to because of an artificially lowered AWR stat.
