Madden 20 Ultimate Team: The fastest middle linebackers (MLB) in MUT – Patrick Willis, Brian Urlacher & more

Speed is vital to success in MUT, and a fast linebacker can shut down even the best opposition.

Toby Durant by Toby Durant

As Madden Ultimate Team advances into Series 5 there are some seriously powerful cards, especially on offense.

To combat them you will need to build a strong defense with a fast middle linebacker.

This is the player you will be controlling most frequently and using to cover ground to the sidelines on run plays and deep in coverage against the pass.

As a result, you may want to forgo a huge OVR total for a few extra points of speed. This will help you keep up with Barry Sanders or Tarik Cohen while being able to reach those deep corner/post routes to take the ball away.
