Madden 22 continues its ratings reveals, now offering gamers their top ten highest-rated tight ends. This position has seen stardom in recent years, with elite athletes making fantastic plays.
The top-rated TE, and new member of the 99 Club, is Travis Kelce. He is, without a doubt, the best tight end right now. The rest of the list, on the other hand, was not as well-received, sparking controversy. According to some fans, some tight ends were not given a proper rating despite being dominant on the field.
Regardless, it is certain that these ratings will be adjusted as the NFL season comes along and certain players continue to perform at a high level.
Madden 22 Top 10 rated tight ends
Below, you can find Madden 22’s best-rated tight ends:
- Travis Kelce, 99 overall, TE, Kansas City Chiefs
- George Kittle, 96 overall, TE, San Francisco 49ers
- Darren Waller, 93 overall, TE, Las Vegas Raiders
- Mark Andrews, 88 overall, TE, Baltimore Ravens
- Hunter Henry, 87 overall, TE, New England Patriots

Travis Kelce, 99 OVR
Travis Kelce joins Davante Adams as part of the 99 Club. It’s hard to argue against this decision when Kelce performs tremendous feats on the field. The Kansas City TE displayed total dominance last season, recording an impressive 1,416 receiving yards, becoming the second-leading receiver in the league.
This is also Kelce’s fifth-consecutive 1,000-yard season, which is an outstanding accomplishment when taking into account that the Chiefs have a plethora of star wide receivers to target. His rating went from a 97 overall rating in Madden 21 to a member of the 99 Club in Madden 22.
There’s isn’t any argument against Kelce is the best TE in the NFL, and this is a well-deserved rating for number 87.
George Kittle, 96 OVR
George Kittle is an impressive tight end that demonstrates elite receiving skills as well as top-tier blocks. He captivates fans with his athleticism, football IQ, and passion for the game. The Iowa product is a key member of the San Francisco 49ers offense and a leader in the locker room.
Unfortunately, he missed most of the 2020 season due to a foot injury, playing a mere eight games. In these games, he recorded a total of 634 yards and two touchdowns. Projections put his numbers at around 1,200 receiving yards if Kittle were healthy.
His rating dropped from a 98 overall rating in Madder 21 to a 96 in Madden 22. We are confident that he’ll bounce back this year, torching defenses and increasing his rating.
Darren Waller, 93 OVR
Darren Waller took the league by storm in the 2020 season. Waller used to be a wide receiver and now is seeing a lot of success as a TE. After violating the league’s substance-abuse policy and getting cut from multiple NFL rosters, he found success with Las Vegas.
He improved immensely during the 2019 season and became an even bigger threat in 2020. Last season, he recorded 1,196 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. This is his second season as a starter and his second 1,000-yard campaign.
Waller improved his rating in a fantastic manner, going from 85 overall in Madden 21 to a 93 in Madden 22. He’s a top-tier TE now, and one of the best deep threats in the new game.
Mark Andrews, 88 OVR
Mark Andrews finds himself as the fourth-best TE according to EA Sports. This is the first bit of controversy, as fans think that other players with better stats, like Mike Gesicki or TJ Hockenson, are more deserving of this spot.
Andrews played 14 games in 2020, reeling in 701 receiving yards and seven TDs. This isn’t bad by any stretch of the imagination, and does cement Andrews as an incredible asset in the Ravens offense. He helped Lamar Jackson a great deal, becoming his most-targeted receiver, especially on third downs.
The 6’5’’ TE is a reliable receiver and excellent blocker, but we do side with the fans. His rating is a bit too high compared to other players in the same position.
Hunter Henry, 87 OVR
Hunter Henry has come to New England for the upcoming season. The Patriots decided to spend the big bucks in free agency, acquiring Jonnu Smith and rising star Hunter Henry. This new tight end tandem has been nicknamed “The Boston TE Party.”
Hunter is not the most accomplished TE stat sheet-wise, recording 613 receiving yards and four touchdowns in 14 games. So, fans have argued he was rated too highly despite his constant display of athleticism.
Henry was rated an 85 overall in Madden 21, and even though he showed improvements in his game, other TEs outperformed him. Henry is a lead blocker and a fantastic player, but rated too highly by EA for Madden 22.
These are the top TEs in Madden 22. With this new information, you can start thinking about schemes and planning your Franchise strategies to be the king of the gridiron.
