Justin Jefferson Makes 'Madden 99 Club' as Top-Rated Receiver

EAGAN, Minn. — The Madden 24 player ratings have spoken and granted Justin Jefferson's entry to the prestigious 99 Club.

The Vikings phenom is the highest-rated receiver in this year's game. Jefferson's membership to the 99 Club was announced Monday morning on ESPN's Get Up!

Jefferson has made the Pro Bowl to end each of his first three seasons, shattering team and league all-time records along the way.


He is entering his fourth pro season with 324 catches for 4,825 yards and 25 touchdowns after leading the NFL with 128 receptions and 1,809 yards in 2022.

The 2020 first-round pick last week was awarded the 2023 ESPY for Best Play for his thrilling one-handed catch at Buffalo that converted a fourth-and-18.
