1. George Kittle
If Kittle doesn’t strike you as the type who wants payback when it’s due, you haven’t been paying much attention to the star tight end. After an extremely disappointing Super Bowl loss to Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs, Kittle will be back with a vengeance this season.
Not just because he won’t want to feel that sense of defeat again, but also because he wants to establish his spot at the top, specifically over Kelce.
Not only does Kittle perform better than the KC tight end at times, he also does it without a league and Super Bowl MVP tossing him passes. He makes a name for himself without a ton of help like Ertz does, but way more dynamically. He also is the new Gronk and is miles ahead of Hooper’s skills in terms of getting things done on his own at times.
He can burst through defenses, sprint past linebackers and even drag multiple players down the field with him. He is virtually a combination of every single TE on this list, which makes him the best, especially in Madden
Ertz will start out the year with a 98 Madden 21 rating but will jump that up to a 99 during his revenge tour.
