Toby Durant by Toby Durant

Madden 19’s Ultimate Team is once again one of the most popular game modes as players build their own teams to compete with one another online.

As part of this there are 18 legends in the game that pack a punch and can take your lineup to the next level. To earn the best version of them, Boss Legends, you need to either get very lucky and pull them from a pack, or else get to work on building your sets.

The Madden 19 Boss Legends are effectively Madden 18’s Ultimate Legends. While the best versions of players are underpowered compared to those 97 OVR players, you also need to collect just five cards to unlock the Boss Legend version of each player, rather than the six you needed last year.

To get these cards you can buy Legends Fantasy Packs for 1,500 points that will guarantee you an 84+ player, or you can build up your coins and take to the Auction House and out-bid others for cards.

Here are all the Legends currently in Madden 19 Ultimate Team.
