MUT 20 TOTW Predictions: Week 11 Giveaway

With all but the MNF game between the Chiefs and Chargers left in Week 11, it's that time again to predict who we think will earn Team of the Week honors. After racking up 9 catches for 137 yards and 2 TDs in a 37-20 win over the Dolphins, my prediction for this week's LTD player is John Brown of the Buffalo Bills. For the offensive Hero of Week 11, I'm going with Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott. There's a lot of speculation that Dak is due for a card in the upcoming Thanksgiving promotion. If he's not included this …

Signature Series: Carson Wentz and Avery Williamson

A new round of Signature Series was released today with Eagles QB Carson Wentz and Jets MLB Avery Williamson joining the program. Wentz's latest item has just enough speed (80) to help avoid the pass rush and with 93 Throw Under Pressure and 90 Throw on the Run ratings, expect him to help extend passing plays. Williamson is a run-stuffing MLB with 94 PRC, 95 PUR, 91 TAK, and 92 BSH. So, if you're having trouble against the run, consider giving Williamson a look.

MUT 20 TOTW Predictions: Week 10 Giveaway

After another exciting week of NFL action full of big plays and underdog wins, it's time for us to predict who will earn Team of the Week 10 honors. Despite his team narrowly losing to the Bucs, we're predicting Christian Kirk as this week's LTD after his big game of 6 catches, 138 receiving yards, and 3 TDs. Our guess for offensive Hero is Derrick Henry, who led the NFL in rushing yards this week with 188 and paved the way for a Titans win over the heavily favored Chiefs, 35-32.

Flashbacks: Lamar Miller and Sean Lee

Sean Lee flashes back to 2013 and while his 95 Play Recognition rating is impressive, his lack of athleticism may make it difficult for him to see the field.

ZAN's Corner: Try This OPTION Play Out!

Welcome back to ZAN's Corner,

In lieu of another great Lamar Jackson performance, I wanted to show a unique option play from a very under-appreciated playbook - the Pistol Weak Wing "Read Option."

With the strong under center run meta in Madden 20, you typically don't see too many players running a "Fast Break QB" under center when they could easily hand the ball off to an "Evasive" Saquon Barkley or a "Bruiser" Bo Jackson. However, with the Ravens playbook, you have the ability to use your QB as a ball carrier to keep those heavy blitzing run defenses honest …

Legends: Dallas Clark, Keith Bulluck, and LTD Brian Bosworth

This week's new Legends are Dallas Clark, Keith Bulluck, and LTD Brian Bosworth. Clark has average speed for a tight end but excels with his route running and sure hands. Keith Bulluck with his 86 Speed and 87 Acceleration, is now the fastest ROLB currently in the game. LTD Bosworth also offers a nice speed option at MLB while bringing 92 Tackle, 90 Block Shedding, and 90 Hit Power to the table. Check out all of today's latest items and their ratings below:

With another week of exciting NFL action nearly in the books, it's time to guess who we think will earn TOTW 9 honors.

For Hero on offense this week, we're predicting Tyreek Hill will earn the honor after a close win against the Vikings that saw him grab 6 catches for 140 yards and a touchdown. Recording his fourth interception since …

Flashbacks: Tyrann Mathieu and Marcedes Lewis

Tyrann "Honey Badger" Mathieu and Marcedes Lewis are today's newest Flashbacks released by EA. Mathieu's latest item takes us back to 2015 when he was a member of the Arizona Cardinals. While his height can be a bit of a liability, his speed (87) and acceleration (89) will help the "Honey Badger" cover ground in the secondary. Lewis flashes back to 2010 when he was a member of the Jaguars. His stats seem a little low but he can be useful for run blocking (87) and for Jaguars' theme teams.

ZAN's Corner: "Good" vs. "Bad" C-Routes

Welcome back to ZAN's Corner,

This week we take a look at the two primary types of C-Routes that you will find in Madden 20, the differences between them, and also how you can use "Hot Route Master C-Routes" to beat man and zone coverages! This video also explains the importance of labbing your routes on both the wide and short side of the field vs. zone coverages to see how zone "grids" work.
