The Madden 22 ratings emerging on Wednesday, the Ravens All-Pro tight end received the highest score for his career at all-time high of 88. Only Travis Kelce (99), George Kittle (96), and Darren Waller (93) were the highest-rated players.
Andrews' NFL rating is higher in each of his three NFL seasons. For Madden 19 Andrews had a rating of 75 overall, coming out of Oklahoma as the third highest-rated rookie in a particular position including his fellow Ravens 2018 draftee Hayden Hurst. His score climbed four points before reaching a top of 79 after a successful debut season. He then exploded in the new year, with an all-time high of 10 touchdown receptions as a TE, and seven additional spots for 86.
This 86 is the eighth-best in the NFL despite Andrews rapidly becoming an elite target than guys like Greg Olsen (also an 86) and even Evan Engram (88). At 88, Madden has rightfully established Andrews as one of the most sought-after red-zone targets and pass catchers as a tight end. In spite of becoming more of running blocker last season, with Nick Boyle out injured, Andrews still caught 58 passes and seven touchdowns, gaining 701 yards.
Andrews ability rating of 86 for speed 90 acceleration, 79 strength 80 agility and 96-degree of awareness makes it clear why he's Lamar Jackson's most sought-after target over the last few seasons. Kelce as well as Aaron Donald, Rams pass rusher, and Devante Adams, Packers pass catcher, returned to the 99-yard line after an incredible year (1,416 yards, 11 touchdowns), which contributed to helping Kansas City reach the Super Bowl.
Kittle Kittle, who is the second-best TE in the NFL Waller's two terrible games for the Raiders make up the top three. Super Bowl champ Rob Gronkowski is notable as the seventh-ranked tight end, with an 86. Dallas Goedert's score of 85 rounds out the top 10.
