Player of the Week 5 (POTW) - Davante Adams

Not many wide receivers in NFL history had the kind of game Davante Adams did against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5.

He finished the game with 11 receptions, 206 yards and two touchdowns. He's definitely responsible for keeping Green Bay in the game and getting the 25-22 victory.

Team of the Week LTD - Aaron Donald (2020)

You can't have a Madden Ultimate Team without having an incredible defense! The story is the same in Madden 22 and you'll need a powerhouse rusher to destroy offensive lines.

Enter our prediction for the Team of the Week LTD in Madden 22, Aaron Donald. In Week 5 of 2020, Aaron Donald had four sacks against the Washington Football Team, tieing his career-high.

TOTW 5 Offensive and Defensive Heroes Predictions

This is always a tough category to pick as MUT 22 will have plenty of years and players to choose from. However, we never shy away from a challenge and will do our best to make a prediction.

The Offensive and Defensive Heroes are vital to the success of any Madden Ultimate Team. Last week we got our prediction for the offensive hero correct with Antonio Gates.

This week for MUT 22 TOTW 5 we have an idea of who could possibly be named the Offensive and Defensive Heroes in Madden 22.

Offensive Hero - Greg Olsen - 2016

If you travel back in time to 2016 you'll run into a peak tight end that caused defenses problems every single week. That tight end was Greg Olsen and one of his best outings were in Week 5 of the 2016 NFL season.

Olsen ended his day against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with 9 catches for 181 yards. Although his career has come to a close, we hope that Greg Olsen will have another chance to shine on your Madden Ultimate Team.

Defensive Hero - Lito Sheppard - 2006

Go back ten years from the potential Offensive Hero we mentioned above and you'll find the defensive back responsible for winning a game on his own for the Eagles. As the Cowboys were within striking distance to win the game Lito Shephard returned an interception for 102 yards!

This gave the Eagles a 38-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys and was Lito Sheppard's second interception of the game. He'd be a great choice to be the Defensive Hero for the MUT 22 TOTW 5.

TOTW 5 - Other Player Upgrades

As with every week, more than just the players mentioned above get a special place on the Team of the Week roster.

Although they'll have plenty to choose from we expect at least a couple of these players to land on the MUT 22 TOTW 5 lineup.

Offense: Derrick Henry, Justin Herbert, Mike Williams

These offensive powerhouses led their respective teams to victory in Week 5. Derrick Henry rushed for 130 yards and 3 touchdowns, ensuring a 37-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Justin Herbert and Mike Williams had a special QB to WR connection in their Week 5 win over the Cleveland Browns. Williams especially had an incredible game with 165 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Justin Herbert threw for nearly 400 yards and four touchdowns.

Defense: Everson Griffen, Darius Slay, Kevin Byard

The defensive outing by each of these players was incredible. Everson Griffen kept the Minnesota Vikings in the game with two sacks and a forced fumble.

Darius Slay (aka Big Play Slay) lived up to his nickname with two interceptions in the Eagles win over the Carolina Panthers. Lastly, Kevin Byard ensured the Jaguars wouldn't be able to mount a comeback with his one interception returned for a touchdown.

Each of these players had an incredible defensive showing in Week 5 and could easily be added to the MUT 22 TOTW 5 roster.
