Madden 20 Ultimate Team’s Series 4 is coming to an end.
After an epic run that saw some truly awesome cards hit MUT, Series 5 is expected to drop on 7 February.
That means your chance to convert trophies into the 96 OVR Series Master Brandin Cooks is running out fast.
A new MUT Series means a new master. But who could it be?
There have been two defensive and two
offensive players so far, with Brandin Cooks being the most recent. So will it
switch back to the defensive side of the ball?
Fletcher Cox, Philadelphia Eagles
RESILIENT: Cox battled injuries throughout the season
Fletcher Cox remains one of the best interior defensive lineman in the NFL. The Eagles may have had a disappointing 9-7 record, going on to lose in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, but Cox battled through injuries to be dominant by season’s end.
He may have played in all 16 games with
only 3.5 sacks – his second lowest total ever – but given his quality and
versatility, and the fact he was playing through injuries for a lot of the
year, he deserves a MUT card higher than 91 OVR.
Also, the two defensive players with Master
cards are a FS and a LOLB, so defensive line makes sense as the next master.
Jurrell Casey, Tennessee Titans
LEADER: Casey has been a staple of the Titans' defense since he was drafted
The Tennessee Titans were one of the
biggest surprise packages of the 2019 NFL season, reaching the AFC Championship
game having beaten the New England Patriots in Foxboro and the Baltimore Ravens
in Baltimore, and having started the season 2-4.
Casey was a huge reason why, and has been a catalyst to the team’s past success from the interior defensive line.
His best card is a 91 OVR Signature Series card that is now outdated. His performance relative to similar players and representation in MUT dictate he should be on the cards for a seriously upgraded card very soon.
T.J. Watt, Pittsburgh Steelers
DPOY: Watt was one of the best defensive p;layers in the NFL this year
The biggest reason, I expect, he didn’t make TOTY is because MUT have another highly rated card coming for the Steelers’ star player.
Could that be the Series 5 master? Or are
they holding out to give him a Defensive Player of the Year card should he win
that award (which he should)?
We don’t know. If he does win DPOY, and
Series 5 starts after the Super Bowl, then we can rule him out as the Series 5
Series 5 Master cost
As with the rest of the Masters, you can expect the NAT version of the card to cost 1,050 Series 5 trophies, while the auctionable master will cost a whopping 2,000 Series 5 trophies.
Alternatively, you can look to pick one up for around 500k coins in the auction house.
Series 5 Master rating
If it continues in the trend it has so far, you can expect the master to be rated 96 OVR, as the last two jumped one OVR.
However, given the best players in the game
right now are 97 OVR, I would expect the master to be rated 97 OVR. A two OVR
jump isn’t unreasonable, considering Series 1 master Von Miller was 91 OVR, and
Series 2 master Melvin Gordon III was 93 OVR.
What else will be new?
Series 5 will obviously bring far more
content than just a new master. There’ll be challenges, new programs, new
missions and a lot of new players.
However, one of Madden 20’s producers, Jake Stein (@Jstein2469), replied to a tweet revealing some juicy new information.
That’s right, there’ll be a ton of new swag
to deck your team out in. He revealed there will be around 60 new throwback and
That means we could see uniforms like the
49ers’ all-white throwbacks, or the Dolphins’ throwback uniforms, or even the
Ravens’ all-black uniforms.
