Without a single dropped catch last season, DeAndre Hopkins arguably has the best hands in the NFL. Now, he is also one of the best in a popular video game too.
Madden fans will soon get to experience the impeccable catchability of the All-Pro wideout, who earned a maximum overall rating of 99 in the newly-unveiled Madden NFL 20.
Hopkins is just one of four NFL players to earn a 99 OVR, joining Aaron Donald, Bobby Wagner and Khalil Mack, and is the only offensive player in Madden NFL 20. Hopkins, rated in a number of categories, also scored a 99 in: Awareness, Catch Rating, Spectacular Catch Rating, Catch in Traffic Rating and Release Rating.
Hopkins, coming off his second consecutive First-Team All-Pro campaign, scored 11 touchdowns and set career highs in receptions (115) and receiving yards (1,572) in 2018. He joins J.J. Watt as the only two Texans to be included in the highly-coveted 99 Club. Watt was rated 99 in four editions of Madden (2014-17).
Madden NFL 20 will be released worldwide on August 2.
