A tight end is a QBs safety net, so who will be among the best in Madden 21?
As with every year, there is a new Madden on the horizon. There is also next-gen consoles which should make Madden 21 a standout game from its predecessors.
Also with the new year, there is new Madden ratings. Rob Gronkowski is back! This means there will be a shift in the Madden 21 tight end ratings and we are here to discuss who will be the top five in the newest installment of the hit franchise. Last week we discussed who will be the top five rated wide receivers in Madden 21 and this week we take on the tight end discussion.
5. Austin Hooper
Hooper was nothing short of extraordinary in the first ten weeks of last season as he racked up 608 receiving yards to go along with six touchdowns in that frame. He also did so in a position that doesn’t have a lot of depth in terms of big-time production. So, the former Falcon stood out.
But after suffering an injury in week 10, Hooper came back in week 14 and failed to record a single touchdown for the remainder of the year and only put together 179 yards over four games. This was a major drop off in production, but his injury can be used as the reason why. It also can be the fact that Matt Ryan is known to go cold at the end of every season.
That last problem actually fixed itself heading into this season as Hooper is now a Cleveland Brown. Each and every year we all think it’s the year the Browns finally make the playoffs and each year we’re disappointed. But Hooper may be the final piece they needed.
New England had crazy success over the years running a two tight end offense and now the Browns can do so with David Njoku and Hooper. With Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb on the field for Cleveland as well, Hooper should find himself wide open on many occasions with defenses not knowing where to look.
Hooper will begin the year with a 88 rating in Madden 21, but will jump to a 92 by year’s end.
