The NFL is filled with some of the most athletically gifted men the world has ever seen. In a way, you can even call these men freaks, and in Madden 20, that athleticism translates well to the virtual gridiron.
These are guys with such mind-boggling athletic attributes that they’ll give you an edge over your friends in your Connected Franchise or head-to-head game. They’ll be guys to look for early on and get a head start on developing, with athletic stats that nobody else has. These are players you want on your team no matter what in Madden 20.
CB Obi Melifonwu
Coming into the game at 6 foot 4, 224 pounds, Melifonwu is easily one of the biggest corners in the game. To complement his size, he also checks in with 92 speed, 93 acceleration, and 96 jumping. Although he’s not the most agile, with only 84 agility, he is still a great user defender to trade for or pick up in free agency if your online franchise sucks. He’s a good player to put at slot corner or safety, but where he would really shine is as your team’s sub linebacker.
Moving him to the safety position would allow you to sub him in at linebacker in nickel, dime, and any other defensive back heavy formation. At only 25 years old with 75 tackling and 82 hit power, he’s no slouch against the run, and with some development and good usering, he can become a top player on your squad.
CB Chris Westry
Coming in at the number five spot is rookie cornerback Chris Westry of the Dallas Cowboys. Coming into the game at 6 foot 4, it’s safe to say that nobody’s wide receivers are going to be able to jump over him or get too far away in coverage. Add to his height the fact that he has 94 speed, 91 acceleration, and 90 jumping, and you have a freak at cornerback.
Only 22 years old, Westry is a guy that has plenty of time ahead of him to hone his skills. His coverage ratings are going to take some time to build up, but if you can stick to him and really develop him, you’ll have a star in your secondary that can match up with any receiver in the league.
TE Noah Fant
At number four we have the star rookie tight end for the Denver Broncos: Noah Fant. The former Iowa Hawkeye stands at 6 foot 4 like the previous guys on our list, but weighs 249 pounds. On top of a large frame, Fant has 89 speed, 91 acceleration, 89 agility, and 93 jumping. His speed is second-highest for a tight end in Madden 20, and is tied for first in agility.
Unlike the players before him on the list, he can come in and start for your offense right away with 78 catching, 75 catch in traffic, and 78 spectacular catch. Fant will take less time to develop than the defensive back before him on this list, and comes in ready to wreck the league from day one.
LB Tremaine Edmunds
Holding down the number three spot on our list is linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. The man quarterbacking the Buffalo Bills defense has been a freak since his days at Virginia Tech. Drafted at only 19 years old in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft, he is one of the best youth / athletic combos in the game.
The tallest player on our list so far at 6 foot 5, Edmunds is also a tank, hitting the scales at 250 pounds. With 87 speed, agility, and acceleration, he is already bigger, faster, and more athletic than most tight ends in the league. In years past, when linebackers played like superman, Edmunds would easily be one of the best young players in the league. Now that ball physics and angles have been altered, he isn’t as effective, but he still gets the job done better than any other young linebacker. A day one starter, Tremaine Edmunds is the type of athletic freak that can control the middle of the field for your defense.
OLB Montez Sweat
Coming in second on our list of the top Madden 20 freaks is the man himself from the Old Spice commercials: Montez Sweat. The 22-year-old outside linebacker from Mississippi State is a beast off the edge. At 6 foot 6, 250 pounds, he can match up against any offensive front. Starting with 77 finesse moves and 74 block shedding, he has great skills that can easily be developed.
What really makes Sweat a freak is his speed. Running a 4.41 forty-yard dash at the NFL Combine, he checks in with a blazing 91 speed and 93 acceleration, easily making him the most athletic edge rusher in Madden 20. Though he’s a bit raw, Sweat has the potential to turn into one of the best players in the league if you put some work into him.
WR DK Metcalf
Finally, taking the number one spot on Sports Gamers Online’s list of the top Madden 20 freaks is the 2019 NFL Combine dominator, the man amongst boys, the weight room warrior, the freak himself: DK Metcalf. A human tower, Metcalf checks in at 6 foot 3, but what makes his size different is that he weighs 228 pounds, giving him tight end size. However, he claims to have 1.9 percent body fat, meaning it’s all muscle.
Not only is he bigger than any other receiver or DB that may cover him, but he is also faster. Posting a blazing 95 speed, 93 acceleration, and 94 jumping, he is pound for pound the best athlete in the game this year. He can beat defenses any way you need him to, making him one of the most dynamic receivers. He’s also no slouch in terms of skill, as he starts out with some great receiving stats. He has some work to do on his route running, but that isn’t enough to keep him from being a day one starter for you in your CFM.
There you have it, sports gamers! These are your biggest freaks in Madden 20. Who did we miss on this list? Do you have any freaks that you look for when you start a franchise? !
