TOTW Week 7

Ok, so again here are some things I think we learned from Week 7 of the NFL Slate

  1. Both the Broncos and Panthers were benefitted by soft early schedules and will struggle to hit .500
  2. Matt Stafford and Cooper Kupp may be the best duo in football right now
  3. Pete Carroll has been carried by Russ, not the other way around
  4. The Bengals are a legit contender

It is time for TOTW in Madden 22 and (no surprise) that Cooper Kupp is the POTW. I thought we might get Jamarr Chase or Mike Evans POTW, but Kupp gets a needed …

Legends- Maurkice Pouncey and Broderick Thomas

Big weekend in competitive Madden, and we are getting some BIG players in Madden 22. I mean literally big, like lineman and linebackers. On the offensive side of the ball, we get the anchor of so many good Pittsburgh Steeler offensive lines in Maurkice Pouncey. If you are looking for an anchor of your line, Pouncey is an Agile archetype Center, with 92 STR, 91 PBK, and 92 RBK. Certainly he will make some teams, especially if you are building a Steelers TT.

On the defensive side of the ball, we got a deep cut at linebacker. I had to …

Herbert has the mobility to get out of the pocket and will get hot route master...it's a tough choice between him and Dan.

TOTW Week 6

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I spent my time in Cleveland in 50 degree weather in the rain watching the Browns get WORKED by the Cardinals....so that was fun. New week, though, and new players in the Team of the Week program. The POTW for Week 6 is Jonathan Taylor, coming off a 158 yd 2 TD performance against the Texans. Taylor has base 91 SPD, 90 ACC, 91 AGI, and 91 COD. The offensive hero this week is legendary TE Vernon Davis, rocking 90 SPD, 92 CTH, 90 CIT, and 91 SPC. Defensively, we are going way back …

LTDS- Tyler Lockett and Deion Jones

Goooooooooooooooooooood Thursday morning/afternoon depending on your time zone.

All of these items are available for 48 hrs and have a quicksell of 250k coins. On offense, we get one half of the dynamic WR duo in Seattle. It is Geno Smith's favorite target Tyler Lockett!

Wildcard Wednesday - Rising Stars II

Apologies for no article on TOTW yesterday, I unfortunately was under the weather and spent most of the day in bed. We have Wildcard Wednesday today and it is time to add more of the young guns to the game of Madden 22 with the Rising Stars program. These players can be found in all packs, and specifically in Rising Stars player packs which cost 5,000 training points in the store for 1 random 89+ Rising Star..

Legends - Michael Vick and Charles Woodson

Well, friends, the time is finally here. Pocket passers and those e-book route combo studiers are now gonna be Heavy Panther QB Blast running pains in our butt. Ladies and gentlemen, Michael Dwayne Vick is in Madden NFL 22. The former Virginia Tech Hokie is an Improviser archetype QB, rocking 92 SPD (that is not a typo), 92 THP, 92 RUN, and 90 DAC. Vick might be the move for ladders this weekend....

In another shocking turn of events, the Raiders Theme Team gets another stellar piece to their team. It is none other than the former dry heaves Michigan …

Series Redux

For the first time this year, we get a Series Redux release. These are prior LTD items that are getting rereleased as items that will be available for the rest of the year.

LTDs - Rodney Hudson and Marcus Maye

It is a beautiful Thursday (with a stellar TNF game tonight in Seattle...Hawks vs Rams who ya got???). It is a new batch of LTDs into Madden 22. A reminder that these items are available for 48 hours in packs and have a quicksell value of 250k coins. Offensively, I mean the Raiders TT has been blessed why not bless it some more. It is the big man in the middle, former FSU Seminole Rodney Hudson in the game. While his base item is Cardinals chem, Hudson will bring Chiefs and Raiders chem with his PUP. Hudson has 94 PBK, …

Wildcard Wednesday Veterans II

It's another Wildcard Wednesday and it is Veterans this week coming to Madden 22. Fun part about veterans is that they can switch chemistries to any team they have played for. In my personal opinion, this might be the best group of Vets we have seen, as many of these items are quite playable. This week we have Jason "The People's" McCourty, Ryan "Fitzception" Fitzpatrick, Robert "Harley" Quinn, Cordarrelle "Thanks For The 40 Points Last Week" Patterson, and Jared "Gordon Ramsey" Cook. Veterans Player Packs are live in the store for a random 88+ Veteran (4400 training). Check out all …

TOTW Week 4

The Saints are dead to me and so are the Raiders and we are never talking about those games again. Other than that, another fun week of NFL action and it is time to reward some of the top performers with a Team of the Week items. Let's first talk about our LTDs, as we once again have 2 items available for 24 hours. The GOAT Tom Brady gets one for passing Drew Brees' all time passing yards record. Brady has 91 THP, 93 SAC/MAC, 90 DAC, and 55 SPD (had to throw that in there). The regular LTD is …

Gridiron Guardians Program

The MUT content continues flying out of the factory, this time with the new Gridiron Guardians program. This program you may be familiar with, as it was formerly known as the MUT Heroes program, as exemplified by the players being stylized as super heroes. But, much like a 1960's cottage, the program needed a new coat of paint and some touch ups and...well here we are! First, lets take a look at the player list:

woods.jpg

LTDS- Robert Woods and Kareem Jackson

It's time for the weekly reminder to rip packs, as it is Limited Edition time in Madden 22! As a reminder, these items are only available in packs for the next 48 hours and have a quicksell value of 250k coins. This week on the offensive side of the ball, we get one of (in my estimation) the most underrated wide receivers in the NFL. It is the former USC Trojan Robert Woods making his presence known. Woods has 90 SPD, 91 CTH, 90 CIT, and 92 SRR.

On the defensive side of the ball, we get another hard hitting …

Wildcard Wednesday Heavyweights II

These boys are heavy and we are certainly not gonna wait for them, its Wildcard Wednesday Heavyweights today!

Today, we have in the game of Madden 22 boots up random nickname generator....Flyin' Ryan Kelly, Taylor "The Motor" …

TOTW Week 3

Another fantastic week of NFL football. Here's what I think we learned:

  1. Kickers are people too and they absolutely ROCK
  2. The Rams and Matt Stafford are for real
  3. The rookie QBs this year are...struggling early
  4. Urban Meyer thought he was playing Purdue every week when he took the NFL job

Anyways, it's time for Team of the Week items. No surprise that the Player of the Week is Bills QB Josh Allen. He absolutely went off on the "vaunted" WFT defense for 358 passing yards and 5 total touchdowns. Allen may be the best QB in the game, rocking 91 …

mackey2.jpg

Legends- John Mackey and Lee Roy Selmon

A legendary weekend deserves some more Legends into the game of Madden 22. We have 2 new Legends here on a Saturday morning, getting slightly overshadowed by the Team Diamonds released on Friday. On the offensive side of the ball, we get another TE trying to take lineup spots away from Waller and Kittle. It is none other than former Syracuse Orangeman and longtime Baltimore Colt John Mackey. Mackey has 87 SPD, 91 CTH/CIT, and 91 SPC. Is he good enough to take a spot on your team? Let me know in the comments.

On defense, we get the 3 …

master marino.jpg

M22 Team Diamonds!!

It is finally that time folks! Team Diamonds are in the game of Madden 22!! For those who are new to the game, these items provide 3x chemistries for their respective teams. Dan Marino is the TD Master, and he is the first QB in the game with Hot Route Master! This will certainly make building those Theme Teams a lot easier than it was yesterday! Here is the full list of Team Diamonds:

ricky.jpg

Team Diamonds

landry.jpg

LTD's- Harold Landry III and La'el Collins

We got Team Diamonds coming tomorrow,, we have a new title update today, and it seems like we forgot we have LTDs in the game this morning! These items are available in packs for 48 hours and, honestly, I'm not sure how many people will be clamboring to rip packs. On offense, we have Dallas Cowboy HOSS La'el Collins at RT. Collins has 92 RBK and 90 PBK, so for those running Cowboys TT he is an improvement over the RTs out there (and adds a chem for dem Boys).

On offense, we get Harold Landry III at ROLB added …

Wildcard Wednesday- Flashbacks II

ITS GETTIN WIIIIIILD ON WILDCARD WEDNESDAY! Okay maybe it isn't, like, SUPER wild....but we got 2 QBS from this set of Flashbacks. Remember, our last set of Flashbacks gave us the best QB in the game in Daniel Jones, so I'm interested to see your guys' opions on this set of Flashbacks. Todays items include A.J "If I Were A" Bouye, C.J. "Mr Flashback" Mosley, Micah Hyde and Go Seek, Ryan Tannehill the Mannehill, and Wham Bam Thank You Cam Newton. There are new challenges in the game (for a PUP of any one of todays players) and those count …

TOTW Week 2

Another wild week in the National Football League, and we saw some amazing individual performances in those games. Let us take a look at the players coming into Madden 22 as Week 2's Team of the Week players. The Player of the Week item is Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Mike Edwards (2 pick sixes in their win over Atlanta) rocking 91 SPD, 91 ACC, and 90 ZCV. The LTD is Aaron Jones, who EA must have been nostradamus with because Jones went OFF last night with 4 touchdowns. Jones has 90 SPD, 91 ACC, 91 AGI, and 92 BTK.

The …

williams.jpg

Legends- Curtis Martin and Roy Williams

Two new legends into Madden 22 today and as we start to see theme teams filling out, these guys seem like great additions to fill out that roster. On the offensive side of the ball, we get former Pitt Panther and Jet/Patriot Curtis Martin at halfback. Martin comes into the game with 91 SPD, 93 ACC, and 92 BTK. I love him to replace some of those running backs we've seen like LT and even some Reggie Bush if you are still running a Jets theme team.

On defense, we get a Dallas Cowboy and our second Roy Williams...but this …

diggs.jpg

LTD- Stefon Diggs and Marcus Peters

Lots of things going on in the MUT world right now, with house rules returning tomorrow and Team Diamonds finally being released next week!! Today, it's of course LTD Thursday and we got 2 new players available for the next 48 hours in packs.

On the offensive side of the ball we get former Minnesota Viking and star of the Buffalo Bills Stefon Diggs. The former Terp comes into the game with 89 SPD, 92 DRR, and 92 SPC. He is 90s in all three route running categories, but that 89 speed is going to hurt him a little. Bills …

totw sets.jpg

TOTW Week 1

What a weekend of NFL football that was! That Monday night game was a wild finish, we saw games coming down to the wire, and we saw Daniel Jones fumbling...so nothing has really changed! It is the first installment of the Team of the Week program, and we start things off with some pass rushing fiends. Myles Garrett gets the LTD TOTW item with 92 PMV andp 90 FMV at 92 OVR, coming off a 4 tackle, 1 sack, 8 QB pressure game vs the Chiefs. Chandler Jones, though, went absolutely bananas this weekend. He gets a 92 OVR Player …

rice.jpg

Legends- Jerry Rice and Mike Haynes

WE GOT A FULL FOOTBALL WEEKEND LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!!! Which games are you guys most excited for? I obviously can't wait for Ohio State and Oregon today and Browns/Chiefs tomorrow! BUT, before we get there we have new Legends into the game of Madden 22.

First off, a staple in the game and someone who seems like he is always one of the first WRs on early MUT squads. It is none other than the pride of Mississippi Valley State University Jerry Rice. Rice comes into the game with 91 SPD, 90 SPC, and 90 CTH which seems like some …

chubb.jpg

LTDs- Nick Chubb and Fletcher Cox

The MCS is over (what a final it was) and it is back to a somewhat normal schedule. That means it is time for more LTD's to be released into Madden 22. For those who don't know, LTD's are limited edition items that are only available for 48 hours in packs.

Offensively we get the former Georgia Bulldog and soon to be leading rusher in the NFL for the Super Bowl Champion Cleveland Browns Nick Chubb!! Chubb is a Power Rusher HB rocking 89 SPD/ACC, 91 TRK, and 92 BTK. I love how they made this item with a combination …

Wildcard Wednesday- Veterans I

Listen, I know the MCS style of play isn't everyone's cup of tea (and I know most of you were just watching to get rewards) but I hope you found at least one moment of fun last night watching the MCS Ultimate Kickoff. I know I had a blast calling it and it was cool seeing how many of you posted in the forums that you watched so thank you.

We have our first set of Vets into the game on Wildcard Wednesday today. You can purchase an 88+ veteran player in the store for 2,700 training. Our Vets into …

greene.jpg

Legends- Leonard Davis and Kevin Greene

Legendary human beings are in the game of Madden 22 today and its all about that bass, bout that bass.........no treble.

We got some big hosses as our Legends released into Madden 22. We start things off on the offensive side of the ball with a 3x Pro Bowler who knew how to protect the QB. It is none other than the former Texas Longhorn Leonard Davis. Davis is a Power Right Guard rocking 90 STR, 91 PBK, and 91 RBK. Not a ton of top end guards in the game right now so certainly worth a grab!

Defensively, we …

Golden Tickets Release 5

The weekend is just around the corner and that means we have some more Golden Tickets released into Madden 21. The rumor mill has told me that this particular Golden Ticket release might be the best one so far? Let me know in the comments if this is the best group of items that have been released in the GT set. Today, we have The Gadget Man Taysom Hill, ASU Beast Brandon Aiyuk, the man who's name definitely sounds like the fake one you give to solicitors Jimmy Smith, and Mr. Money in the Carl Banks. Remember that there is …

Fan Appreciation Part 2

It gets very hot in the summer here in Arizona, as we topped 100 degrees again yesterday. For that, it was necessary (darn near crucial) to have a device circulating the air in the house and creating a breeze to keep you cool. What I'm saying is, I really appreciated my fan yesterday..........................

And EA appreciates you guys, as we have part 2 of the Fan Appreciation program. We have 20 new challenges in the game, which will allow you to get the 99 OVR NAT Golden Ticket Fantasy Pack and select any one of the GTs that are released …

A reminder that these items allow the players to …

Romo.jpg

Ultimate Legends- Romo, Taylor, and Gonzalez

Elton John said that Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting, but he neglected to mention that Saturday Morning's Perfect for Ultimate Legends...admittedly a less catchy song. We got 3 more Ultimate Legends into the game today, starting of with LTD Tony Romo. The former Eastern Illinois Panther is an Improviser archetype with 83 SPD, 98 RUN, and 99 DAC. Will he be remembered more as a football player of a commentator? Let me know in the comments.

The offensive legend is without a doubt one of the greatest Tight Ends in the game. It is none other than former Cal Golden …

Power Up Expansion I

To misquote the words of famed late 80's early 90's Europop group Snap! (one of my favorite groups to have punctuation in their name btw). I GOT THE POWER...Up Expansions. This program is pretty self explanatory; it's an expansion of the Power Up programs giving those existing Power Ups new steps to upgrade. This allows these players to reach 98 OVR and add a 4th ability slot. Look for these every Tuesday for the forseeable future. Check out the upgraded PUs below, listed with their former teams:

Get outta bed Grandpa Joe, WE GOT MORE GOLDEN TICKETS! This is the second release of the community created Golden Tickets. Remember all of these items can change to any of the team chems that they previously played for without needing a Power Up (note: this is less relevant to this particular release as all of these players have only played for one team).

I read some of the comments from my last post and I heard a lot of comments about how cringe my writing style. And, you know, I certainly hear what you're saying. I will mold my writing personality to make sure that I appease you guys who don't enjoy the feel of my articles.

FINAL Wildcard Wednesday- Veterans

It's something unpredictable
But in the end it's right
I hope you had the time of your life

-Green Day

Its the FINAL Wildcard Wednesday and what a ride it has been. We end the WCW year with the Veterans program. These may not be the most exciting players, but I love the fact that you don't need a power up to get all of their team chems.

Today the 3rd release for the the NFL Draft program is live in the game and we have 33 99 OVR players making an appearance.

What a crazy year it has been already, and to think next week....

It's time for some more Ultimate Legends into the JMF (that's John Madden Football for those who don't know. It's a popular acronym...ok I just made it up sue me). Let's start of with the LTD, and it's a throwback to Madden's past. He is the Madden 06 cover athlete, a Philadelphia Eagles legend, and a scholar when it comes to OT rules Donovan McNabb! The former Syracuse Orange pops into our linups with 92 SPD, 98 RUN, and 97 THP as an improviser archetype. Let me …

LTDS- Robert Woods and Kevin Byard

Its time once again for everyone's favorite game show, "What Items Are Only Available For 48 Hours in Madden Ultimate Team!" We'll come up with a better game show name in post production. It's LTD Thursday and we got two guys who I'm a big fan of in the NFL. On offense, we have former USC Trojan and one of the most consistent WRs in the game Robert Woods. The Los Angeles Ram comes into the game of Madden with 96 SPD, 99 CTH, and 98 both SRR/MRR. I've always though Woods deserved more credit as a top WR, what …

Team Masters

Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Jack Nicklaus...the list goes on and on of people who know how important it is to participate in The Masters.

Ultimate Legends: George, Brooks, and Gates

Happy weekend MUTHead family! We got some Ultimate Legends released into the game today that I'm excited for because I'm a biased human being who enjoys seeing his team represented. You may be asking yourself, "Nick, first of all, we know that. Second of all, there are no Cleveland Browns today you dingus!" Fear not my friends because I have many personal biases that EA can take my money for...because our first legend into the game today is not only a former Tennessee Titan, but he is a Heisman Trophy winner from THE Ohio State University, Mr. Edward Nathan George …

Series 6 Update and New Team Builders

Apologies that this article is a tad late, I got my COVID vaccine the other day (yay) and it kicked my Community Manager butt (boo). Good news is the Series 6 update is live in Madden Ultimate Team with a lot of new changes and additions. All Series 5 trophies have converted to Series 6 trophies for half value (e.g. 100 Series 5 trophies -> 50 Series 6 trophies).

LTDS- Chris Godwin and Ryan Kerrigan

Its time for some more LTD's in the game of John Madden Football, and we have ourselves some strong items live right now. On offense, how about a defending Super Bowl Champion? That's right, it's former Penn State Nittany Lion Chris Godwin coming to the game. Standing at 6'1", Godwin comes into the game with 96 SPD (so that'll be a 99 with chems), 99 CTH, and 97 CIT. He has great hands and can make some specatactular plays. Defensively, the Washington Football Team gets some more defensive love (as if they needed it), with former Purdue Boilermaker Ryan Kerrigan. …

Wildcard Wednesday- Flashbacks

Listen, we all need to look ahead to the future. At the end of the day, however, it is important to look back and appreciate what we had. There's your deep thought for the day, appreciate the past my friends.

Speaking of looking to the past, it's Wildcard Wednesday and we got some Flashbacks!!! I'm a big fan of these Wildcard Wednesdays because it seems like we always get surprised by at least one of the items that gets released.

Another legendary weekend is on the horizon, as it is time once again for EA to release more Ultimate Legends!!

On defense, the secondary gets some reinforcements with longtime Cardinal and St. Louis Ram, CB Aeneas Williams. The …

It's time once again for another two LTDs to be added into Ultimate Team, and good lord Alvin Kamara is a beast. Seriously, the former Tennessee Volunteer has appeared and made himself what I think is the best HB in the game. He has 96 SPD, 97 ACC, 98 AGI, and 97 COD...he basically has Human Joystick without needing the ability. And now it is time for a new segment called, Nick's Fun Fact of the Day!!! Today's fun fact: Alvin Kamara's agent has the greatest name in the world; Damarius Bilbo. I will be naming my first child Damarious …

So my choices of music references for the Sugar Rush program were either I Want Candy or that SugarCrash TikTok song. I'm a 31 year old man who decided those were the two references I could come up with...coooooool. The Sugar Rush program is live in Ultimate Team and there is A LOT of information to parse through. I captured as much info as I could from the GMM stream and tried to put it in bullet point form. Let me know in the comments if it is too much or too little information, and what needs to be added …

LTDS- Brian Poole and Ryan Kelly

Happy Thursday to everyone in the MUTHead community! It is LTD time and we have two beasts coming to the game of John Madden Football. Defensively, we have current New York Jet and former Florida Gator Brian Poole. I've seen a lot of people on Twitter talking about how good this 98 OVR cornerback looks, ratings wise. He comes in with 96 SPD, 97 ACC, 97 MCV, and 95 ZCV, which certainly put him in the upper echelon of all defensive packs in Ultimate Team. Offensively, we need to protect the quarterback from those angry pass rushers. How about we …

To misquote the words of the immortal Bruce Springsteen, we're born to be wiiiiiiiildcaaaaard (thank you I'll be here all week).

Veterans are unique because they can change team chemistry to any NFL team they played a snap for without a Power Up! You can find today's Veterans on the Auction House or by purchasing the 89+ Veterans Player pack from the Store for 6,000 Training Points. Veterans Player packs contain 1x random 89+ OVR Veterans Player item and each of today's new …

After spending the night after FNF hiding under my desk with a bottle of Jack, I remembered the one thing that would get me through this dark time in my life...Ultimate....LEGENDS! GET HYPED PEOPLE (DJ Airhorn)! We have 3 awesome legends that released today. The LTD UL is Super Bowl Champion and Saint stahlwart RG Jahri Evans.

LTDs- Golden Tate and DJ Reader

Thirsty Thursday is here and I know all you MUT fans are thirsty for some LTDs! We got 2 studs coming to the game, starting with former Giant, Seahawk, and Lion (and sought after free agent) Golden Tate. Tate comes in stock with 95 SPD and 97 SRR, so he can run those quick off the line routes. While maybe not the flashiest WR, there are certainly some theme teams that would love to add Golden Great. On defense, how about former Clemson Tiger and current Cincinnati Bengal DJ Reader. A beast on the line, Reader comes in with 95 …

Wildcard Wednesday- Campus Heroes and Drew Brees Tribute

TOP OF THE MORNIN TO YA! Happy Saint Patty's Day to everyone out there and a happy WILDCARD WEDNESDAY to you as well! Today, we got some Campus Heroes power ups released and a Drew Brees Tribute item. I am a big fan of the Campus Heroes program as a college football fan. These may not be the most exciting releases in the world (since these items already have their team chemand you can only get these players to a 96) but I still love reminicing about these guys playing on Saturdays. Power ups were added for the following players: …

MUT- Free Agency Program

Free Agency is one of the most exciting times in the NFL, and now that excitement live in Madden Ultimate Team!

The set features 18 players (6 heroes) and 2 additional masters, bringing the total to 20 items you can collect. The defensive master is none other than former Wisconsin Badger and Houston Texan turned Arizona Cardinal JJ Watt (seriously, who saw Watt going to the desert??). The offensive master is former Mississippi State Bulldog and …

Walker.jpg

Ultimate Legends: Revis, Shockey, and Walker (oh my)

Saturday night might be alright for fighting (sorry to all of you who are too young for that reference) but Saturday morning is all about the LEGENDS! The UL Program dropped some fire today, starting off with one of the most feared CB's, longtime New York Jet and former Pitt Panther Darrelle Revis. His 98 OVR legend comes stock with 95 spd, 98 MCV, and 98 PRS so with your chems he'll have 99s a plenty. The offense needed some love today, so former Miami Hurricane and TE Legend Jeremy Shockey makes his appearance in Madden NFL 21. While not …

Limited Time Editions: Tyler Lockett and Danielle Hunter

Give me an L! Give me a T! Give me a...you know what it's my first week and I don't need that sort of publicity. ITS LTD THURSDAY Y'ALL!!

The defense adds an absolute beast LTD as well, with longtime Minnesota Viking and former LSU Tiger Danielle Hunter. No mistake this man is quick on the …

Hello from your Muthead CM! Each week I will be recapping the ins and outs of the Competitive Madden Community, highlighting the big moments and the main storylines. Without further ado, lets get started!

Friday Night Football brought some midweek magic, as it eminated on a Wednesday due to the Yard Invitational (more on that in a bit).

MUT 21: How to Get Rookie Master Isaiah Simmons

We're only hours into the EA Play Trial period for Madden NFL 21 and there's already a lot of hype about Core Rookie Master Isaiah Simmons. Standing at 6'4'' with 90 SPD, 90 ACC, and 90 JMP, Simmons has the perfect combination of size and speed needed to lock down your secondary against quality wide receivers. His coverage ratings (78 MCV, 80 ZCV) leave a bit to be desired, but if you're someone who enjoys usering your safety, he is definitely worth strong consideration this early on in the MUT season.

Madden NFL 21: Fastest MUT Players

We all know by now that speed kills in Madden Ultimate Team.

With the fastest speed rating for Core players at 90, we're expecting Tyreek Hill to be a matchup nightmare early on in MUT. The only Core Elite cornerbacks with 88+ speed (Donte Jackson and Denzel Ward) seem to lack the coverage stats needed to shut down a wide receiver like Hill. Below is a …

MUT 20 TOTW Predictions: Week 15 Giveaway

It's that time of the week again to predict who we think will earn TOTW 15 honors. With so many high-rated cards released so far this year (especially on offense), predicting TOTW gets more difficult each week since there can only be a select few rated in the 90's. With that said, for this week's LTD player, we're predicting Julio Jones after his big 13 catch, 134 yard, 2 TD performance in a 29-22 win over the formidable 49ers. Our pick for Hero on offense seems like a shoe-in for TOTW, but whether he's Hero remains to be seen; it's …
