Madden 20 Ultimate Team: The best San Francisco 49ers cards to buy in MUT – Jerry Rice, Richard Sherman & more
One of the most storied franchises in the NFL, the 49ers have some of the best cards in MUT this year.
Winning four Super Bowls in a nine-year span cemented the 49ers in the hearts and minds of many fans. They have five in total and have in their history some of the biggest legends of the game.
The list of players representing the 49ers in MUT are some of the best in the game. It says it all that the full list at the bottom of this article doesn’t drop below 91 overall.
To activate level 1 of the team chemistry for the 49ers you need five cards from the team. So which ones are the best to use?
Jerry Rice (95 OVR)
Program: NFL 100
Auction House Value: Xbox – 464,000 / PS4 – 510,000 / PC – 598,000
Number one on the NFL 100 greatest ever players list says it all. Rice won three Superbowls and has NFL records for receptions, yards, and TDs.
94 short route and 93 medium route makes Rice virtually unplayable in a short passing game. 95 catching and 92 catch in traffic allow you to throw it up with confidence that Rice will bring it down.
Richard Sherman (95 OVR)
Program: Zero Chill
Auction House Value: Xbox – 792,000 / PS4 – 800,000 / PC 736,000
One of the best 5th round picks ever, Sherman actually made his name in Seattle. A lockdown corner with back to back eight interception seasons, Sherman is one of the best the modern era has seen and he is still plying his trade for the 49ers at the age of 31.
92 man cover and an unbelievable 97 zone cover and 96 press will be better than any other card you can get. He will literally lock down even the best receivers.
Ronnie Lott (94 OVR)
Program: NFL 100
Auction House Value: Xbox – 595,000 / PS4 – 568,000 / PC 653,000
The 8th overall pick in 1981, Lott is also one of the Greatest 100 in NFL history. Four Superbowls and 16 career forced fumbles have cemented his place in the history books.
95 hit power is going to change the game in MUT, combine this with 92 zone cover and you have an elite safety. 90 pursuit and 89 tackling round off this complete player.
DeForest Buckner (93 OVR)
Program: Ultimate Kickoff
Auction House Value: Xbox – 225,000 / PS4 – 220,000 / PC – 301,000
Taken with the 7th pick in 2016, Buckner has steadily improved each season to have a breakout Pro Bowl year in 2018 with 12 sacks.

94 finesse move is impressive for a 295lb DT, 89 tackle and 90 hit power will cause problems for the opposition. 85 strength is okay but feels a little low for the player of Buckner’s size.
Kyle Juszczyk (93 OVR)
Program: Signature Series
Auction House Value: Xbox – 598,000 / PS4 – 800,000 / PC Unknown
Juszczyk has somewhat transformed the FB position. Many go their entire careers only doing the dirty work of run blocking. Juszczyk adds another dimension by being a talent pass-catcher out the backfield.
95 lead block is the elite level you would expect, with 77 run block being good positionally. 92 trucking and 80 catching are what separates Juszczyk in the position. Expect to use him in short passes in the flats that will get first down yardage.
