Madden 21 Ultimate Team's most active program is Team of the Week, and MUT 21 TOTW 6 is almost here!
Let's go over the players we can expect get a boost in Madden 21 from their performances this week.
MUT 21 TOTW 6
Team of the Week (TOTW) has taken on a new format in Madden 21. It involves bringing back historic players as much as upgrading current ones.
Historic players are some of the most important in MUT 21. They make up the LTD, Offensive Hero, and Defensive Hero for each TOTW. But they're nearly impossible to predict.
So for now, we'll focus on which current players should make the MUT 21 TOTW 6 cut - and the POTW.
Player of the Week - Derrick Henry
Derrick Henry put on what may be the performance of the season in week 6. Henry rushed for an insane 212 yards, picking up another 52 receiving yards, and 3 TDs on the way.
Henry's incredible performance pushed the Tennessee Titans' unbeaten streak forward with a 42-36 OT win over the Houston Texans.
There's zero doubt that Derrick Henry will be the MUT 21 TOTW 6 Player of the Week.
After 2 weeks straight without a passing TD, Matt Ryan erased all doubters in week 6 with a huge Falcons win.
Ryan threw 4 TDS and 371 yards in the 40-23 win over the Minnesota Vikings.
This will put Ryan solidly in the MUT 21 TOTW 6 - and in contention for Player of the Week if not for Derrick Henry's MVP-level performance.
Jason Pierre-Paul is a defensive legend, and he's returned with several veterans to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Paul has had a solid 2020 season, but stepped up even bigger in week 6.
Paul managed a forced fumble, 1.5 sacks, and 6 tackles in the Buccaneers 38-10 win over the Green Bay Packers.
One of the few bright lights in the Minnesota Vikings' 2020 season is Justin Jefferson.
Jefferson is a fantastic blue chip prospect at just 21 years old, and has shown across 2020 how he can be a first choice weapon in the future.
In week 6, Jefferson had another star-making showing, catching 9 passes for 166 yards and 2 TDs.
While this wasn't enough to push the Vikings to their second win in 6 games, it gave fans a consolation prize. It will also earn Jefferson a spot in the MUT 21 TOTW 6.
Jamel Dean is one of the younger prospects on the older Tampa Bay Buccaneers lineup.
But Dean made a huge play in week 6 that could very well earn his spot in the Madden 21 Ultimate Team TOTW.
Dean managed a 32-yard pick-six in the Buccaneers' 38-10 win over the Green Bay Packers, and tacked on 2 tackles.
There will be many asterisks around Phillip Rivers' week 6 performance, but he should still make MUT 21's TOTW 6.
Rivers threw for 371 yards and 3 TDs against the Cincinnati Bengals. Rivers lead a comeback from an 0-14 first quarter deficit to a 31-27 win.
While Rivers threw 29/44 with an INT against one of the worst defenses in the NFL, this is still a big success.
Minkah Fitzpatrick is far from a household name. But the 23-year-old safety scored as many points as the Cleveland Browns on Sunday for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fitzpatrick only defended one pass in week 6, and managed a massive 33-yard pick-six from the opportunity.
This will likely push Fitzpatrick into the MUT 21 TOTW 6.
