After the completion of Week 9 of the NFL season in 2022, we have reached the point in the year where we are exactly halfway through the competition. On November 10, EA Sports released a new rating update for Madden 23, which altered the characteristics of many of the league’s most well-known players. Two of the most prominent modifications were downgrades given to superstars in the National Football Conference and significant improvements given to rookies in the same conference.
As a result of the rating upgrade for Week 9, defensive tackle Kenny Clark of the Packers and running back Ezekiel Elliott of the Cowboys were among the most notable players to see a change. Clark’s overall OVR dropped to 88 after receiving a -2 point reduction, bringing his current total to 88.
This is because Clark’s awareness stat dropped by five, which may be ascribed to what happened. And as for Elliott, the top running back’s overall value has been reduced by one point, bringing it down to 87. The seasoned running back began the season with an OVR of 88, but he improved to an 89 in Week 3 of the season.
On the other hand, two rookies who are quite fascinating overall gained significant enhancements. Kerby Joseph, a safety for the Lions, has had his overall value rise to 75 as a result of the game against the Packers, in which he recorded 10 combined tackles and two interceptions. Since we last spoke, Joseph’s overall value has improved by five points.
Kenneth Walker III, a rookie running back for the Seahawks, is likewise showing steady improvement in these rankings. Walker’s overall value has increased to 82, up five points from where it was at the beginning of the season.
Walker III is having a productive season so far, as evidenced by the fact that he has rushed for 570 yards and has scored seven running touchdowns in 2022. This latter statistic is good enough for a fourth-place across the entire NFL.
Other noteworthy revisions include significant reductions to the overall value of Broncos running back Melvin Gordon III and increases to Broncos defensive tackle D.J. Jones (79 OVR, +2) and Cardinals wide receiver Zach Allen (77 OVR, +2). (75 OVR, -3).
