I’ve always wanted to have a cheat sheet for my CFM that ignored the madden overall ratings and showed me who were the best players in the game based on the ratings that actually mattered, so then I could find possible sleepers that other guys would trade to me for minimal value. Well, this Madden I’ve finally done it. To do so, I combined the ratings into position specific category’s -which gave me a single number, that I then turned into grades (note not all A’s, B’s and C’s are created equal) and combined them to get a ranking. Continuing our Madden 16 Connected Franchise Tips here are the Top 10 WR Sleepers you can trade for or develop.
