Madden 20: Kansas City Chiefs Player Ratings, Roster, Depth Chart, Salary Cap, Free Agents & Needs – Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce & more

The most exciting team of 2019 is here. Can you lead KC to a Super Bowl at last?

Ever since Andy Reid arrived in Kansas City in 2013 they have been a threat to topple the Patriots and make the Super Bowl, but despite a 65-31 record in his time there it is yet to happen.

2019 may be their best chance yet, with the ridiculously talented Patrick Mahomes under center and a bevy of exceptional players around him the Chiefs are on the hunt for their first championship since they claimed Super Bowl IV in January 1970.

Can you take over on Madden 20 and lead this roster to the ultimate success?

Team Rating

The Chiefs come into Madden 20 with a very underrated 78 OVR, which puts them 11th and tied with two other teams.

This is made up of a high 83 score on offense, which is the 6th best but tied with 5 others, and a low 75 defense score. That defense is weighing down the whole OVR as there are just 3 teams with a worse score, but the offense is also massively underrated for the stars that they have on that side of the ball…

Patrick Mahomes, Quarterback (97 OVR)

Age: 23

Development Trait: Superstar X-Factor

Contract: 2 years/$9.7 million

2019 Cap Hit: $4.88 million

Best Stats: Throw Under Pressure (97), Throw On Run (97), Throw Power (96), Short Accuracy (94), Deep Accuracy (94), Medium Accuracy (93), Awareness (92)

Patrick Mahomes was a first-round pick for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017, but he sat for almost all of his rookie year, watching and learning. He played the final game of the regular season and showed glimpses of what he could do. The Chiefs made the decision to promote Mahomes to starter for the 2018 season and were immediately rewarded. Mahomes became just the 3rd QB in NFL history to throw for 50 touchdowns in a season as he walked to MVP honors, but it wasn’t quite enough to beat the Patriots either in the regular season or playoffs.

In Madden 20 Mahomes is the highest rated quarterback and one of the best offensive weapons the Madden franchise has ever produced. His ability to get the ball out under pressure (97) and on the run (97) is combined with a rocket arm (96) and superb accuracy (94 short, 93 medium, 94 deep). Paired with good acceleration (87) and speed (81) and stopping Mahomes is nearly impossible.

Travis Kelce, Tight End (96 OVR)

Age: 29

Development Trait: Superstar X-Factor

Contract: 3 years/$32.3 million

2019 Cap Hit: $11.1 million

Best Stats: Awareness (99), Catching (93), Catch In Traffic (92), Short Route (88), Acceleration (88) Medium Route (86), Speed (85)

Travis Kelce was a third-round pick for the Chiefs in 2013 and didn’t make a catch as a rookie, but in 2014 he pulled in 67 catches for 862 yards and 5 touchdowns. In 2016 he broke out with a monster 1,125 yards and has since become the premier pass catching tight end, with three-straight 1,000+ yard seasons and two First Team All-Pro awards.

Kelce is the top-rated tight end in Madden 20. His route running (88 short, 86 medium) is paired with amazing catching (93) and catch in traffic (92) to make him an elite threat.

Chris Jones, Defensive Tackle (89 OVR)

Age: 25

Development Trait: Star

Contract: 1 year/$1.98 million

2019 Cap Hit: $1.98 million

Best Stats: Awareness (95), Play Recognition (92), Power Moves (92), Strength (91), Tackle (86), Acceleration (85), Finesse Moves (83), Block Shed (83)

A second-round pick for the Chiefs in 2016, Chris Jones has quickly become the heart at the middle of the Chiefs defense. Jones has been developing into a quality all-round player and in 2018 racked up 15.5 sacks, 29 QB hits, and 19 tackles for loss.

Jones is a superb player in Madden 20. He has excellent power moves (92) and strength (91), which combines with strong awareness (95) and play recognition (92) to create a disruptive and destructive player.

Kendall Fuller, Cornerback (88 OVR)

Age: 24

Development Trait: Star

Contract: 1 year/$2.05 million

2019 Cap Hit: $2.05 million

Best Stats: Acceleration (92), Play Recognition (91), Speed (90), Man Coverage (90), Agility (90), Jumping (87), Zone Coverage (86)

Kendall Fuller was a third-round pick in 2016 for the Washington Redskins who came to Kansas City in the Alex Smith trade prior to the 2018 season. Fuller has developed into a well-rounded corner who can excel in the slot. In 2018 he had 2 interceptions, 12 deflections, and a forced fumble.

Fuller is a terrific corner in Madden 20. He has good acceleration (92) and speed (90), along with strong play recognition (91) and excellent coverage skills (90 man, 86 zone).
