The folks at EA Sports are in the process of rolling out the ratings for the latest iteration of their juggernaut video game franchise, Madden NFL 16. Yesterday they started by revealing their top ten rookies (spoiler alert: Trae Waynes didn't make it). Today they're listing the top five running backs. And wouldn't you know it, a 30-year-old that missed all but one game last season ended up making the cut!
Adrian Peterson will be the second highest rated running back in the game, checking with a 95 overall rating. Only Marshawn Lynch was rated higher than AP, garnering a 96 overall rating. Rounding out the top five was Jamaal Charles of the Chiefs, Philadelphia's DeMarco Murray, and Pittsburgh Steeler Le'Veon Bell. All three running backs received a 94 overall rating.
You can check out all the player ratings as they're revealed on the Madden NFL 16 ratings hub. EA Sports is rolling out detailed ratings for top players each day leading up to its scheduled release date of August 25.
