Another week of the NFL season has wrapped up and it was a week that saw several tight games, upset wins and the playoff picture become a lot clearer. Now, going into Christmas weekend many players have a lot of momentum coming off strong games. So who did EA pick to be in Madden’s Team of the Week (TOTW)?
This week’s Limited Time Hero is Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman, who tore apart the San Francisco 49ers. He has 92 Speed (SPD), 93 Agility (AGI), 91 Acceleration (ACC), 90 Jumping (JMP), 80 Trucking (TRK), 93 Elusiveness (ELU), 93 Ball Carrier Vision (BCV), 76 Stiff Arm (SFA), 93 Spin Move (SPM), 93 Juke Move (JKM), 90 Carrying (CAR), 77 Catching (CTH), 77 Route Running (RTE), 79 Catch in Traffic (CIT), 81 Spectacular Catch (SPC) and 60 Pass Blocking (PBK). This all makes him one of the quickest and fastest players in the game who can make people miss with ease or go through them. What’s more, he is an excellent receiver out of the backfield. He is complete. That will cost you though, as he is selling for around 235,000 Coins on Xbox One and 246,000 Coins on PS4.
This week’s Offensive Hero is Saints WR Brandin Cooks who had a career day as the Saints offense blew up the Cardinals. Cooks takes the aforementioned Freeman’s speed and somehow takes it up a notch. He has 94 SPD, 95 AGI, 92 ACC, 87 JMP, 90 CTH, 92 RTE, 89 CIT, 90 SPC, 82 Release (RLS), 90 ELU, 92 BCV, 89 SPM and 92 JKM. This speed combined with his route running and catching make him an absolute nightmare for the defense. What’s more, he has 93 Kick Return making him just as big a nightmare on special teams as he is on offense. That big play ability will cost you around 221,000 Coins across both consoles.
This week’s Defensive Hero is Packers FS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, but unlike his name there is nothing funny about his ratings. He has 90 SPD, 90 AGI, 92 ACC, 87 JMP, 85 Tackling (TAK), 89 Hit Power (POW), 83 Block Shedding (BKS), 91 Pursuit (PUR), 87 Play Recognition (PRC), 90 Zone Coverage (ZCV), 77 Man Coverage (MCV), 82 Press (PRS), 83 CTH, 71 CIT and 74 SPC. This means he is a hammer coming down from the defensive backfield in the run game and he is great at playing centerfield in the passing game. He is a complete safety for your defense. That will cost you around 208,000 Coins on Xbox One and 248,000 Coins on PS4.
All of these players are available in Packs, Solo Challenges and the Auction House and all of the Elite Players can be found in Sets. Here are the Sets you need to complete in order to get those players:
