EA Sports revealed the latest list of X-Factors for Madden 21, but this time it’s focusing on the wide receivers and tight ends. The X-Factor was featured in Madden 20 and give unique abilities to players to separate themselves from the pack.
Madden 21 Offensive X-Factors
Six wide receivers received the Double Me ability due to their size and the struggle of leaving them in one-on-one coverage. Those receivers and tight ends include Adam Thielen, Devante Adams, DeAndre Hopkins, Julio Jones, Mike Evans, and Travis Kelce. The Double Me ability increases the success rate of aggressive catches against single coverage.
Receivers like Amari Cooper, Keenan Allen, and Michael Thomas have proven during their careers to have reliable hands. Madden 21 rewarded the three players with the Max Security ability. The ability increases the success rate on possession catches as well as decrease knockout chances.
Yac ‘Em Up
San Francisco 49ers tight end, George Kittle, is the only player to receive the Yac ‘Em Up ability of the receivers and tight ends. This ability helps physical players with being more dominant with the ball. For example, when Kittle gets in the zone, he will break his first post-catch tackle almost every time.
Rac ‘Em Up
Two speedy receivers who can make a short completion into a long touchdown is Stefon Diggs and Tyreek Hill. Both players received the Rac ‘Em Up ability for the upcoming game. This ability increases the success rate of RAC catches against single coverage.
