Myles Garrett created a turnover (fumble) so his may go up also.
Kareem Hunt and Baker Mayfield had solid days as well so their rankings are likely to increase.
Method Behind Madden Ranking Madness
Let’s just say it is highly scientific.
There are master equations, linear models, and intercepts that interpret a player’s stats and spit out rankings.
It’s safe to say that if the player is performing well on Sunday in real games, he will see a ratings spike in Madden when the rankings are recalculated.
