The Broncos have a rich history in the 80s and 90s, with 3 Super Bowls to their name. Their MUT lineups are very strong and have a good mix of current young talent and Hall of Famers from times gone by.
This season has been disappointing for them, finishing 7-9 and a distant 2nd in the division. But this doesn't reflect the talent they have on the roster.
Which of the Broncos will be the ones you need to give your MUT a boost?
Champ Bailey (96 OVR)
Program: NFL Playoffs
Auction House Value: Xbox – 423k / PS4 – 448k / PC – 480k
In the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Champ Bailey is a 12x Pro Bowler and was a lockdown corner for many years in Denver. Finishing his career with 52 interceptions and 812 tackles, Bailey is a legend of the position.
94 speed and acceleration with 95 agility is up there with the best physicals at the position. 96 man cover, 91 zone cover and 90 press could be the best corner in the game alongside Deion Sanders.
John Elway (95 OVR)
Program: NFL 100
Auction House Value: Xbox – 290k / PS4 – 302k / PC - 334k
Another Pro Football Hall of Famer from Denver's history, Elway led the Broncos to their back to back Super Bowls in 97-98. The sheer consistency over his 16-year career is the most impressive factor.
95 throw power is highly valuable to avoid picks, 93 play action supports a balanced offense, and 90 short accuracy with 90 medium accuracy helps to move the chains. His bazooka arm is best with its 91 deep accuracy for big yardage plays.
Bradley Chubb (93 OVR)
Auction House Value: Xbox – 318k / PS4 – 341k / PC - 612k
The 5th overall pick in 2018, Chubb has already racked up 13 sacks but 12 of these came last season and he has suffered from injury for the most of 2019. He is expected to dominate the pass-rushing for the Broncos next to Von Miller for years to come.
93 strength with 90 finesse moves is crucial to playing OLB in a 3-4 scheme. 85 power move is a great compliment to this, along with 91 block shed. 92 hit power is really valuable for forcing fumbles.
Justin Simmons (93 OVR)
Program: Signature Series
Auction House Value: Xbox – 299k / PS4 – 310k / PC – Unknown
Consistent across his 4 seasons in the league, Simmons has 11 interceptions to his name and a couple of sacks. Simmons has particularly stood out in stopping the run.
82 man cover, 81 zone cover and 68 press aren't actually the best stats for a CB. However, 94 awareness, pursuit and play recognition with 86 hit power all make him a great run stopper. In MUT, passing is much more common but you could use this card situationally.
Von Miller (91 OVR)
Auction House Value: Xbox – 191k / PS4 – 191k / PC - 250k
He's still going strong, but Von Miller is already cemented as a legend in Denver. 2nd overall pick in 2011, he has an incredible 106 sacks in only 9 seasons. Add to this his performance in Super Bowl 50 earned him MVP honors.
93 awareness and play recognition are great intangibles to support 90 power moves and 83 finesse moves. 87 block shed gets off the line and 90 pursuit gets to the ball carrier. 83 acceleration and hit power could be a little higher but this is a disruptive card.

The NFL Playoffs are here. We have seen several upsets during Wildcard weekend, as the Houston Texans were the only home team to advance to the Divisional round and that was only thanks to a frantic comeback and some overtime heroics.
With the New England Patriots sent packing by the Tennessee Titans we will see a new Super Bowl champion in February.
