Antonio Brown is back, both on the field and in Madden 21 with an 88 overall rating after missing the majority of last season.
The seven-time Pro-Bowler made his season debut with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the New Orleans Saints in Week 9. Brown had three catches for 31 years as the Bucs got rocked by the Saints 38-3.
AB is back in Madden 21 and his 88 overall rating is solid for a player who only participated in one game last season. Brown has 93 catch rating, 93 agility, 91 acceleration, and 90 speed as his top abilities.
Antonio Brown Madden 21 Rating
Adding AB to a Bucs team in Madden 21 that was already loaded with offensive weapons like Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Gronk, and Tom Brady is borderline unfair.
Putting Evans and Godwin on the outside and lining AB up in the slot is how Madden 21 players should utilize Brown. He can make plays in the middle of the field with his speed and rating while also opening up options for his teammates. Opposing defenses will simply not be able to cover everyone on the Bucs offense.
A season ago in Madden 20, AB came into the game with a 98 OVR rating and was the second highest rated wide receiver behind Deandre Hopkins.
According to Muthead, Brown does not have a card in Madden Ultimate Team, yet. That is expected to change as typically it takes a week or two before players get added into MUT.
