While Justin Herbert was the narrative of the San Diego crime in 2021, he leaned heavily upon the recognized star receiver in key moments. Allen had a season he is accustomed to getting, which meant Herbert had one of their best rookie seasons in history.
It's safe to say that Madden NFL 21 has been hit-and-miss in areas. It is even safer to say Michael Thomas' NFL season was a miss. He entered 2020 with a infrequent 99 OVR position and people believed that he was the best receiver in the game.
Then he was hurt early. Then when he had been poised to come back, he punched someone in clinic and got suspended. He then came back and did not seem right. The most painful stat on his own sheet: 0 touchdowns for the whole campaign.
Julio Jones is something of an enigma. He's just been an all-pro only after. He's only caught double-digit touchdowns in a season only once. His very best successes do not seem to make it into the stat sheet. However, Jones always receives high marks because anyone with eyeballs can see he's an incredible talent. Even with an accident that wiped out half his year, he captured over 700 yards.
Was he an overrated receiver that was destined to fail in Buffalo? After leading the league in receptions and yardage, all those people who asked those loaded questions need to consume a whole lot of crow. He has been instrumental in creating Buffalo's offense one of the more successful units in the group.
