With the start of the NFL season, it's already time for the Week 1 Madden 24 ratings update to shake things up. All throughout the year real-world NFL performances are taken into account, but that's doesn't always spell good news for each player.
Anything can change as the season unfolds, but we've already got a new name inching his way towards the 99 Club while the Madden 24 ratings start to dive for players who couldn't quite deliver in Week 1.
Week 1 Madden 24 Ratings Update Dings Burrow, Boosts McCaffrey
The first set of NFL games this year has come and gone, and the impact of those games has already rippled through the Madden 24 ratings to bring some key changes. It was a tough week for quarterbacks as poor performances saw Week 1 ratings drops for several including Joe Burrow, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, and Geno Smith.
It wasn't all bad news under center as Justin Herbert, Tua Tagovailoa, and Trevor Lawrence all saw their stock rising in the Week 1 ratings update. Meanwhile, Christian McCaffrey turned a dominant performance into a ratings boost that has him on the fast track for the 99 Club. A few more good weeks and his 97 OVR could reach that elite status.
