Rashod Bateman’s first year in the NFL was good, not great. The 22-year-old spent the start of the season on injured reserve, but returned in mid-October and caught 46 passes for 515 yards and a touchdown in 12 games with four starts.
When the Ravens take the field in 2022, Bateman’s role is going to be much larger than it was during his rookie season. He will be WR1, and considering his collegiate career, he could be on his way to a breakout year.
Bateman caught 60 passes for 1,219 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2019, earning him First-Team All-Big Ten honors. He followed it up with 36 catches for 472 yards and two touchdowns during the COVID-shortened season in 2020.
Because of his potential and proven ability for his game to translate to the next level, EA Sports rated Bateman as a 77 overall in this year’s Madden video game. The former Minnesota pass-catcher is not how he is depicted in the game.
However, it’s not because of his rating. Bateman has a significant issue with his look.
In the first look at himself in the game, Bateman pointed out that his fade is not up to standard. There is no fade and the line-up is extremely wonky.
His look in the game made him shed a single tear.
not even concerned bout the numbers , my fade tho 🥲 pic.twitter.com/lSGNNJWOBw

All things considered, Madden has come a very long way with its graphics. It seems like it could get players’ avatars a little closer to reality, but at the very least, it could work on its fades.
