The latest set of Football Outsiders player items hit packs earlier this morning including two elites this time around. You can get more information on this week's selections from Football Outsiders here. Here is the content list:
LE Calais Campbell, ARI (24 HOURS ONLY): Sack, 3 hurries, 9 run tackles for a combined gain of just 13 yards.
P Ryan Allen, NE: Worth 1.6 estimated points of field position. Two punts inside the 10, two more inside the 20, and the fifth went 53 yards.
In a one-sided game between the Falcons and the Buccaneers last night, Devin Hester broke Deion Sanders' return touchdown record with a 62-yard punt return TD in the second quarter. In recognition of this historic moment, the first Primetime Performer player item was released this morning featuring Devin Hester. You will only be able to find this Primetime Performer item in packs for the next 24 hours.
This new Devin Hester is clearly the best return man currently in the mode, and arguably one of the top WRs as well. He comes with 99 kick return, 97 speed, 97 acceleration, and 96 agility.
What would you trade away to get Primetime Performer Devin Hester in your starting lineup?

The Week 3 Coin-Up solo challenges are live featuring Sunday night's game between the Panthers and the Steelers. Defeating the first game in the sequence gives you 500 coins and a Steelers Coin-Up collectible that will be worth 2,500 coin if they win. If you think the Panthers are more likely to win, you can swap this collectible for the Panthers version using the weekly set.
The second solo challenge requires 50+ GP style to unlock in addition to defeating game 1. You get another 500 coins for winning along with a Coin-Up pack containing one of four possible scenario Coin-Up collectibles. If the scenario happens during the SNF matchup, it will be worth the listed amount on Monday. Here are the possibilities:
Antonio Brown has 100+ yards receiving (5,000 coins)
Panthers defense forces 3 or more turnovers (15,000 coins)
Kelvin Benjamin leads both teams in receiving yards (20,000 coins)
Steelers defense forces a safety (50,000 coins)
Which of these Coin-Up items do you hope to get in your Coin-Up pack?
The second week of the new Signature Series program comes with a significant update. Badges are no longer required in the sets, only certificates of authenticity and player items. This seems to be another example of EA taking community feedback seriously and doing something about it. If you didn't follow this program's debut last week, the community response was overwhelmingly critical of having to use expensive badges to only gain a +2 style boost.
