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.

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 …

With ratings of 87 RBK, 87 PBK, 90 STR, and 88 IBL to name a few, Williams offers a solid tackle option for balanced attack offenses. Check out both new items and their full ratings below:

MUT 20 TOTW Predictions: Week 9 Giveaway

With another week of exciting NFL action nearly in the books, it's time to guess who we think will earn TOTW 9 honors. With his name in the discussion for MVP and after a 3 touchdown performance in a 30-20 win over the Titans, Legend and I think this will be Christian McCaffrey's week for an upgrade with a new LTD item. 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.

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. Check out the latest Flashbacks and their ratings below:

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.

If you like mixing up the run and pass on offense, Upshaw could provide a nice upgrade for your offensive line at left guard. If you play a mix of man and zone coverage on defense and are not currently using Law's Team Captain item, he's definitely worth a look at cornerback.

This week on the show, we show the value of the "Jet Touch Pass" that you can find in most offensive playbooks in Madden 20. The Big Dime 1-4-6 DB Sting 2 Buzz is a defense that you have assuredly faced online, whether in MUT Head-to-Head, Salary Cap, Draft Champions, or even if you dabble in "Regs" Head-to-Head with the actual NFL rosters. With this style of defense, it makes the offense's job fairly difficult to establish a reliable run game from the Shotgun. While there are many undercenter formations that do a solid job …

Madden 20 Power Rankings: 10/3

A few of you reached out asking where our Power Rankings were last week. We've decided to scale things back slightly.

Our plan going forward is to release power rankings every other week, but as MCS action picks up with Club Championship tournaments, this may change.

Here are our power rankings for this week:

If your favorite player isn't on our list, that's likely why.

MUT 10th Anniversary

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Madden Ultimate Team! EA Sports is celebrating this milestone over the next 10 weeks by releasing 1 new player item in packs each week for a limited amount of time. According to Jake Stein on Good Morning Madden, these will be players that many consider to be transcendent at their position. Based off that info and Kraelo's vow of silence to avoid spoilers, we're excited to see who's coming our way!

Weekly Challenges and Set

In addition to a new limited-time player, there will also be 1 new challenge released each week. Completing …

House Rules: Loss of Down

House Rules is back this week with a new, limited time (48 hrs) event. In this week's version, we're playing full 3-min quarter games with 1 less down and 10 extra yards to go on offense before a first down. This means 3rd down should now be treated the same as 4th down in this mode. There is one more key difference to keep in mind here: Defensive TD's are worth 15 points! The more games you win, the better rewards you will receive. Rewards this week are the following:

MUT Superstars Program Overview

MUT Superstars comes to MUT… in the middle of the night. MUT Superstars brings upgraded players to highlight the Superstar and X-Factor abilities that are brand new in Madden 20. The biggest positive, to me, is that these MUT Superstars are going to allow us to test a lot of the abilities without spending an absurd amount of Training. Take a deep breath and let’s dive in.

Refresher: X-Factor abilities require you to complete in-game objectives to get your player “in the zone.” Superstar abilities are passive abilities, meaning they are always active in-game.
