New York Giants sophomore running back Saquon Barkley earned himself a top five spot among running backs in Madden 20. EA Sports released the full list of ratings on Monday after providing us with a teaser of just rookies a few weeks back.

Barkley gained a significant bump from his initial rating of 82 last year. For Madden 20, he’s sitting behind backs Todd Gurley (97), Ezekiel Elliot (94), Le’Veon Bell (92), and Melvin Gordon (92).

However, Barkley is not the only notable Giant with an impressive rating in Madden 20. Also standing out are recently acquired right guard Kevin Zeitler (89), new wide receiver Golden Tate (85), and tight end Evan Engram (84). Similar to Barkley, Zeitler also earned a top five mark at his position.

All-Pro kicker Aldrick Rosas is the final Giants player that achieved the top at his position. As the third-best kicker in the game he holds an 84 overall rating.

As a collective unit, the Giants did not fare so well. Defensively they tied with Miami Dolphins for the worst in the game with a concerning 72 overall. The Big Blue also sadly only amassed an overall team rating of 77. That is the second worst in Madden 20, just above the Dolphins.
