Madden 20 Ultimate Team: Best Pass Rushers in MUT – Series 5, TOTY, Ultimate Legends, Ghosts & more
Crushing quarterbacks is key to victory, but finding the best QB killers can be tricky.
Most MUT players focus on creating the biggest, fastest offense possible. However, that often comes at the expense of a weaker offensive line which can be exploited by a brutal, ferocious pass rush.
Finding the best pass rushers can be tricky in Madden. A lot depends on which base front you prefer, 3-4 or 4-3. Then there is the fact that pass rushing is broken into two main stats, power moves and finesse moves.
In an ideal world you want someone that is balanced between the two, but often players are heavily weighted to either power or finesse.
