Madden 17 Ultimate Team: Top 10 Fullbacks

Madden 17 Ultimate Team has a lot of different Full Backs available, but which one to choose? Here is a breakdown of the Top 10 Gold and Elite FB's.


In Madden Ultimate Team there are multiple ways you can structure your team. You could try to create the best possible version of your favourite team, or you could try to create a team with your favourite players at each position or you could just try to create the best possible team overall. If the latter applies to you then you’re going to need to know who the best players at each position are.

Fullback is not a position a lot of people will think about as it is not a position that many people use, but if you’re chasing a high overall then you’re going to need a good FB, so here are the best FB’s available in the Gold tier (70-84 Overall) and Elite tier (85+ overall).

I usually only list one version of each player, but there are not many fullbacks to do that.

1. Mack Strong, Seattle Seahawks – 83 Overall

This is 1 of 5 ‘Legends: Trainer’ versions of Mack Strong (3 others would be on this Top 10 Gold tier FB lists, but they are too similar so I have only included the best). He has 79 SPD, 85 STR, 74 AGI, 78 ACC, 84 RBK, 86 IMP, 84 TRK, 56 ELU, 78 BCV, 79 SFA, 50 SPM, 51 JKM, 81 CAR, 69 CTH and 63 PBK. He will cost a lot though, around 13,000 Coins.

Elite

Honorable Mentions: Michael Burton, Detroit Lions, 86 Overall and Jalston Fowler, Tennessee Titans, 85 Overall. These two are both from the Team Heroes Program from previous months, so cannot be bought, found in packs or acquired from Sets as the Sets they belonged to are now expired.

6. Patrick DiMarco, Atlanta Falcons – 85 Overall

This ‘Base Set Edition’ of Patrick DiMarco is all you will need in a FB. He has 73 SPD, 77 STR, 74 AGI, 81 ACC, 85 RBK, 91 IMP, 75 TRK, 66 ELU, 70 BCV, 71 SFA, 74 SPM, 73 JKM, 77 CAR, 61 CTH and 69 PBK. This all means that he is pretty average in every area but is a very good run blocker, so on the goal-line and in short-yardage situations he’ll be great at clearing a hole for your running back. He’ll cost around 14,400 Coins.

5. Mack Strong, Seattle Seahawks – 86 Overall

This is one of the 5 required ‘Legends: Trainer Editions’ needed to acquire the number 1 overall FB version of Mack Strong. He has 80 SPD, 86 STR, 74 AGI, 78 ACC, 85 RBK, 87 IMP, 85 TRK, 57 ELU, 79 BCV, 81 SFA, 51 SPM, 52 JKM, 82 CAR, 70 CTH and 64 PBK. He’s very similar to DiMarco just a slightly better option as a ball carrier and a pass catcher. But he is going to cost a lot more, around 57,000 Coins.

4. Marcel Reece, Oakland Raiders – 86 Overall

Another ‘Base Set Edition’ and the best FB in terms of a scoring threat thus far. He has 84 SPD, 79 STR, 81 AGI, 87 ACC, 75 RBK, 80 IMP, 81 TRK, 68 ELU, 80 BCV, 78 SFA, 77 SPM, 79 JKM, 86 CAR, 73 CTH and 68 PBK. As I eluded to, Reece is the best ball-carrier and pass catcher thus far and is a genuine threat when used like that. While he isn’t as good a blocker, he is no slouch, and his is only going to coast around 17,250 Coins.

3. John Kuhn, Green bay Packers – 88 Overall

This ‘Award Winners’ version of Kuhn is commemorating his final season as a Packer. He has 78 SPD, 83 STR, 77 AGI, 85 ACC, 84 RBK, 76 IMP, 86 TRK, 55 ELU, 81 BCV, 83 SFA, 71 SPM, 71 JKM, 86 CAR, 72 CTH and 77 PBK, making him possibly the best all-round FB. He is going to cost you around 57,000 Coins.

2. Patrick DiMarco, Atlanta Falcons – 89 Overall

The second version of DiMarco on this list, this time it’s the ‘Most Feared’ version of him. He has 75 SPD, 78 STR, 75 AGI, 83 ACC, 88 RBK, 92 IMP, 76 TRK, 66 ELU, 70 BCV, 71 SFA, 75 SPM, 74 JKM, 78 CAR, 63 CTH and 70 PBK. He is going to cost around 55,000 Coins but is barely better than the ‘Base Set Edition’ of DiMarco, so if you’re going after a FB for that price go for someone else.

1. Mack Strong, Seattle Seahawks – 92 Overall

This is the ‘Legends’ version of Strong you get if you exchange the earlier versions of Mack Strong to a Set. He has 81 SPD, 87 STR, 75 AGI, 79 ACC, 89 RBK, 89 IMP, 87 TRK, 58 ELU, 81 BCV, 83 SFA, 52 SPM, 53 JKM, 84 CAR, 72 CTH and 67 PBK. This makes him a very good blocker, short yardage back and a serviceable pass catcher, but is going to cost 119,000 Coins.

If you’re going for the best team overall, then Mack Strong is the best option, but with all things considered, mainly price, Reece or Kuhn are far better options at the Elite tier.

At the Gold tier I recommend Kyle Juszczyk or Anthony Sherman as they’re pretty good across the board and also cheap. If you’re looking for an all-out blocker, than Jalston Folwer is a very good option at the price that he is.

Ultimately, Mack Strong is the best running back in both sections, as he is a great blocker and decent at everything else, his price tag is the only drawback. So you would be much better off if you saved Coins on your fullback and used the remaining money to improve your team in another area.
