Injecting human judgement into a grading system isn't necessarily a bad thing. Daniel Sorensen is a good illustration. He's having a terrible season for his team, the Kansas City Chiefs, and Sorensen is a major factor in their defense's loss of Madden nfl 22 coins 69.5 points over expected this year, 31st in the league. The performance of Sorensen has earned him the team a coverage grade that is 42.2 per cent in Pro Football Focus and an overall grade of 35.5. Yet, despite his struggles He's still extremely fast! Based upon his on-field speed as measured by player tracking data, we'd anticipate a purely model-based speed score for Sorensen of about 89, over 7 points more than Madden's Week 9 grade of 82. Maybe the people at EA would rather not be able to reward a player not performing as well as Sorensen with a top score in an important category like speed score, as it's a massive impact on gameplay. If that's so, it's hard to fault the EA team.
Other notable exceptions are Chiefs Wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who holds the highest speed score of all of Madden at 99. Hill is certainly fast, and maybe we're splitting our hairs but his best-ever speed of 22.8 mph ranks only fourth place in the cheap Mut 22 coins league since 2017.3 And his current weekly average speed of 22.8 mph, while very respectable, doesn't even crack into the top fifty.
