Hundreds of Madden 21 ratings are adjusted each week, and the roster update for Week 5 is now live!

And with it. Russell Wilson is now in the 99 Club.

This has been well earned, and shows how difficult it is now to become a top-rated star in Madden.

These are the players who are next on the list if they can play to the level we think they are capable of.

DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Arizona Cardinals

Hopkins was in the club last year, and despite another solid season, EA decided to leave him out.

He currently has a 98 OVR rating, but his start to the season is like a man who wants to prove a point.

His 45 receptions through five games is a monster pace to set and he's averaging over 100 yards receiving per game.

If he continues with this kind of production then EA will have no choice but to add him into the 99 Club.

George Kittle, TE, San Francisco 49ers

Travis Kelce fans won't like this, especially with Kittle getting downgraded and Kelce upgraded in the last update.

But Kittle has more upside and has shown his ability in multiple games this season.

He has a problem with consistency but being able to rip off a 15 reception and 183 receiving yard game as Kittle did in Week 4 is another level.

It might not be this season, but Kittle is a gamechanger and he continues to have 150+ yard games, he will get there.

Myles Garrett, RE, Cleveland Browns

We are only six games into the season but Garrett already has seven sacks. This is on par with Aaron Donald - who happens to already be in the 99 club.

He is only 24 years old and already an absolute monster.

Garrett will be in the 99 Club in the next game or two, barring serious injury.

Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens

This seems obvious, but the current league MVP is working towards the top.

He can do everything. Pass, run, lead the team. There are few remaining question marks about Lamar Jackson.

Patrick Mahomes was on a similar path but a year ahead, and he won the Super Bowl.

This will be Jackson's next challenge, and if he can then he will be guaranteed a seat in the 99 Club for Madden 22.

Derrick Henry, HB, Tennessee Titans

He is already leading the league in rushing yards by nearly 100 yards as we get through Week 6.

That is pretty much an entire game ahead.

POUND THE ROCK: Can Henry join CMC as a HB in the 99 Club?

He averages 4.8 yards per carry which basically wins games singlehandedly.

He also seems to have addressed some of the fumbling problems he had last year. He is only 26, so if he can keep going and maybe post a 1,800 yard rushing season he will be added to the 99 Club.
