Madden 20 Ultimate Team: All the best bargain defensive tackles (DT) to buy in MUT – Armstead, Harrison, & more
Every team need some run-stuffers & space-eaters. These big boys are worth every coin in MUT.
Defensive tackles are often forgotten parts of an Ultimate Team, as they rarely put consistent pressure on the opposing quarterback and force turnovers.
However, they are crucial to the overall run defense of a team and help to keep your expensive middle linebackers free from blockers.
With 22 starters it can be tough to fill out a Madden Ultimate team with top level players at every position, so you’ll have to find a few bargains at the Auction House if you really want to compete.
Defensive tackle is one of those spots where you can save some coins and use a bargain or two to fill out your depth chart. So who can you get for under 30,000 coins in Madden 20?
Arik Armstead (86 OVR)
Program: MUT Heroes
Team: San Francisco 49ers
Auction House Value: Xbox – 29,300 / PS4 – 28,900 / PC 30,000
San Francisco’s #1 draft choice in 2015 has been a solid player for them ever since. He’s racked up 10 sacks this season in the middle of their defensive line.

Arik Armstead’s MUT Heroes card comes with a very nice 85 tackling, 84 strength, and 83 power moves, making him more of a pass rusher than run stuffer, but with 81 block shed he can still fill his gap well.
Damon Harrison (86 OVR)
Program: Core Elite
Team: Detroit Lions
Auction House Value: Xbox – 24,300 / PS4 – 27,000 / PC 28,400
Damon Harrison has long been a stud in the middle of the defense. He was named to the 2016 First Team All-Pro for his sensational run defense.
The best run-stuffer in the NFL right now brings 88 awareness & play recognition to the heart of your defense, along with 87 block shed, 85 strength, and 82 tackling. He is a force in the middle and pretty cheap for those stats.
John Henderson (86 OVR)
Team: Jacksonville Jaguars
Auction House Value: Xbox – 25,400 / PS4 – 25,400 / PC 27,900
A mountain of a man, John Henderson was the ninth-overall pick for the Jaguars in 2002 and quickly became a star in the middle of their defense.
This card comes with 86 strength, awareness, and play recognition as well as 85 block shedding and 85 tackling, and an 83 power move for a bit of pass rush too.
Alan Page (86 OVR)
Team: Minnesota Vikings
Auction House Value: Xbox – 27,900 / PS4 – 24,300 / PC 26,800
Alan Page is considered one of the greatest to ever play the position and a two-time Defensive Player of the Year. At the heart of the Purple People Eaters in the 70s he came oh so close to a Super Bowl win but never quite got there.
His 86 OVR Legends card has a superb 85 finesse move along with 85 awareness & play recognition, 81 strength, and 81 block shed. He won’t defend the run quite as well as Henderson or Harrison, but he’ll rush the passer much better.
Darnell Dockett (86 OVR)
Team: Arizona Cardinals
Auction House Value: Xbox – 26,900 / PS4 – 24,400 / PC 27,800
A quality defensive tackle, Darnell Dockett played his whole career with Arizona and went to three Pro Bowls. His first came in 2007 when he racked up nine sacks from his DT spot.
