Quick Bit: Everything you need to know about this year’s top-10 list of players and more.

Full Story:

Ratings, rankings, grades: You can find all the ones you need for “Madden 23” here.

Madden isn’t set to release until Aug. 19, but ratings are slowly starting to trickle out for the long-running football sim franchise.

The first rating that was released was something off a paradigm shift: 49ers left tackle Trent Williams was the first member of the 99 overall club, as revealed on June 1 this year. Williams is the first offensive lineman to join the 99 overall club in the game.

Joining him in the club and making his second 99 overall club appearance is wideout Davante Adams, as revealed on July 18. There should be others joining him — and a fair amount of debate and discussion — surrounding the ratings and more this week.

— Raiders wideout Davante Adams makes the 99 overall club for the second consecutive season, this time in new duds: Adams was traded to the Raiders from the Packers earlier this offseason, giving Derek Carr a 99 overall rated receiver.
