Aaron Rodgers' ratings in Madden NFL 25

Attributes or ratings are the arbitrary statistics that measure the skills of a player in the Madden NFL series. Attributes are usually measured on a scale from 0 to 100. The higher the stat, the better the specific player is at the activity the attribute measures. For example, a higher speed stat results in a player that has a better maximum running speed, a higher injury stat increases a player's resistance to injuries, and a higher throw power stat increases the distance that a player can throw the ball.

List of attributes[]

The following attributes are present from Madden NFL 15 onward:[1][2]

Overall ratings[]

  • Overall Rating (OVR): Overall player rating. It is calculated by weighing certain attributes more heavily depending on the position of the player. For example, quarterback‘s throwing power is more important for a quarterback than a defensive end. In turn, a defensive end's throwing power does not affect the DE's overall rating
  • Strength Rating (STR): Higher the strength, the better a player will block or a defender will shed blocks and more effectively use power moves.
  • Agility Rating (AGI): Determines how quick a player can “cut” or change directions.
  • Speed Rating (SPD): Determines how fast a player will seem on screen.
  • Acceleration Rating (ACC): Rate at which player will reach their fastest speed.
  • Stamina (STA): Determines how fast a player will get tired and need to be subbed out. The higher the stamina, the longer a player can stay in the game without getting tired.
  • Awareness (AWR): How quickly a player will react to his surroundings. With higher awareness ratings, blockers will set-up and react to blocking lanes better, wide receivers will look for the ball faster on routes, defenders will react to the ball faster in the air for zone and man coverage, while defensive lineman will react to run plays and slip screens faster.
  • Jumping (JMP): Determines how high a player can jump and catch a ball.
  • Injury (INJ): Determines how easily a player will be injured. A higher injury rating lessens the chance of a player getting hurt.
  • Toughness (TGH): How quickly a player can recover from an injury. A higher toughness rating allows players to recover more quickly and lessen the chance a player would be re-injured.

Passing-specific ratings[]

  • Throw Power (THP): Determines the distance and speed a player can throw a ball.
  • Short Throw Accuracy (SAC): Determines throwing accuracy on passes below 20 yards.
  • Medium Throw Accuracy (MAC): Determines throwing accuracy on passes between 20 and 40 yards.
  • Deep Throw Accuracy (DAC): Determines throwing accuracy on passes over 40 yards.
  • Throw on the Run (RUN): Determines throwing accuracy on passes made when the player is outside the pocket.
  • Play Action (PAC): Determines how well a player can fake out a defender when running a play-action pass.
  • Throw Under Pressure (TUP): Determines how accurately a player can throw under pressure

Ball-carrier ratings[]

  • Trucking (TRK): how well a player runs over an opponent.
  • Elusiveness (ELU): Determines a player’s ability to successful perform juke, spin, stutter step, etc...
  • Ball Carrier Vision (BCV):
  • Stiff Arm (SFA): How often and how strong the players stiff arm animations are
  • Spin Move (SPM): How quick the animation is and how often a spin will fake out a defender
  • Juke Move (JKM): How quick the juke animation is and how effective it is
  • Carrying (CAR): Determines how well the player protects the football. A higher carrying rating will translate to fewer fumbles.

Receiving ratings[]

  • Catching (CTH): How often the player will catch the ball in the open and in looser and medium coverage
  • Catch in traffic (CIT): How well a player will bring in a catch in tight coverage or when a corner has safety help
  • Route Running (RTE): How closely the player will follow their route that is shown in the coach cam (Playart).
