Madden 20: TOTW 13 predictions (MUT Ultimate Team Team of the Week 13) – James White, DeVante Parker, Cameron Jordon & more
Week 13 is virtually over, so which players did enough to earn a spot on MUT’s Week 13 TOTW?
Lucky Week 13 has come and gone and it was another great week of action in the NFL as many players balled out as the final month of the regular season gets underway.
The Baltimore Ravens stayed hot and cemented themselves as they best team in the NFL, with a tough win over the 49ers, the Houston Texans upset the New England Patriots to draw the playoff pack closer together, and Cincinnati Bengals finally won a game, and the Buffalo Bills continued a terrific season.
Many of those stories wouldn’t have happened without particular player’s performances, who did enough to make the MUT TOTW 13?

James White, New England Patriots (LTD) – 94 OVR
His team may have lost, but White was a key piece in the Patriots fighting back to make it somewhat close come the end of the game.
The running back hasn’t had as big a season as many would have expected, especially considering the injury issues the Pats have had on the offense, but he cashed in big on Sunday night. He turned in 14 rushes for 79 yards, but more importantly eight catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns.
DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins (Hero) – 93 OVR
The Dolphins have had very little to cheer about this season, but Sunday not only provided their third win, it showed the continuation of DeVante Parker showing why he was drafted in the first round.

The receiver has struggled through his career in Miami, but his seven catches, 159 yards and two touchdowns showed everything you need as a receiver. It also included an incredible catch and run for a touchdown on fourth down.
Cameron Jordan, New Orleans Saints (Hero) – 93 OVR
The Saints got another shot at the Falcons, and with it an opportunity to avenge a loss just a few weeks ago. Cam Jordan was a big reason why they were able to do just that on Thanksgiving night.
The defensive end was on fire all game, and formed the biggest part of a terrific pass rush that left Matt Ryan on the turf what felt like the whole game. He had four sacks on the night and had six total tackles on the night.
Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams – 89 OVR
Robert Woods is one of several players on the Rams’ roster who hasn’t been able to consistently live up to expectations, but he reminded everyone of his quality at the Cardinals’ expense.
The receiver logged 13 catches for 172 yards. It was by far his best performance of the season and may be the springboard that launches his season. Either way, he deserves a TOTW card.
Roquan Smith, Chicago Bears – 88 OVR
The Bears defense, after a hot start, has struggled to put together the dominating performances we’d come used to. On Thanksgiving, though, Smith turned in a signature Bears linebacker performance.
The Lions moved the ball surprisingly well against the Bears, with their third string QB, no less, but when it mattered Smith came up big. Not only did he total 15 tackles, he added two sacks, the second of which came during the game’s final stages.
Derrius Guice, Washington Redskins – 87 OVR
The Redskins’ second year RB has had a rough start to his career with injuries, but Sunday provided more of a glimpse than ever of his ability.

In a very shared backfield with Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson, touches must be made the most of. Guice did just that, running for 129 yards and two touchdowns, including a 60-yard run.
Carlos Dunlap, Cincinnati Bengals – 86 OVR
The Bengals, much like the Dolphins have had very little to cheer for. In fact, Sunday was the first time they could really cheer for anything: they won their first game!
The recipe to their success was defense, something they had completely lacked throughout the season. The pass rush came alive, thanks mainly to Carlos Dunlap. The DE had seven total tackles and sacked the Jets’ QB three times.
Raheem Mostert, San Francisco 49ers – 85 OVR
The 49ers may have lost, but Mostert came up big to keep the game close as the two teams battled in the pouring rain.
Mostert, though being the team’s third choice running back much of this season, ran 19 times for 146 yards and a touchdown, including a 40-yard run. For what it’s worth, he also added two catches for eight yards.
Devin White, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 84 OVR
The Buccaneers up and down season continued this week as they went to Jacksonville and beat the Jaguars, and White came up with one of the first of hopefully many big plays of his career.
He may have had ‘only’ seven total tackles with no sacks or forced fumbles, but he notch his first career interception and later recovered a fumble which he returned for a touchdown to give the Bucs a two possession lead and effectively ice the game in just the first quarter.
