Tyreek Hill may be the fastest player in Madden 19, but here are 9 of the other fastest players in the game at WR and RB.
Speed kills in Madden. On offense, speed can make all of the difference in the world turning a typical 8-yard slant into a potential 60-yard touchdown with the run after the catch. This week, EA revealed the full player ratings in Madden 19. Sorting through the ratings, I looked up the top 10 fastest players on offense. No surprise, the category was dominated by wide receivers and runningbacks.
Here are the 10 fastest offensive players in Madden 19:
|WR||Kansas City Chiefs||Tyreek Hill||98||97||98||87|
|WR||Cincinnati Bengals||John Ross||97||95||93||76|
|WR||Carolina Panthers||Damien Byrd||96||94||94||72|
|HB||Jacksonville Jaguars||Corey Grant||96||90||93||76|
|WR||Miami Dolphins||Jakeem Grant||96||95||91||73|
|WR||Arizona Cardinals||J.J. Nelson||96||94||92||77|
|WR||Los Angeles Rams||Brandin Cooks||95||92||96||87|
|WR||New England Patriots||Phillip Dorsett||95||91||96||75|
|WR||Houston Texans||Will Fuller V||95||93||92||81|
|WR||San Francisco 49ers||Marquise Goodwin||95||96||91||83|
It’s important to remember that speed isn’t everything in Madden, but it can be a difference maker. The difference between Ross’ second-best 97 Speed and Cooks’ 95 Speed probably isn’t worth the drop off in 11 Overall, so you’re probably better getting a player like the L.A. Rams wide receiver.
Because Corey Grant is the only running back listed among the top 10 in speed, here are a few other notables:
- Tavon Austin (Dallas Cowboys) – 94 Speed, 80 Overall
- Tevin Coleman (Atlanta Falcons) – 94 Speed, 86 Overall
- Keith Marshall (Washington Redskins) – 94 Speed, 71 Overall
And for quarterbacks, no surprise here; Baltimore Ravens rookie Lamar Jackson is the fastest with 91 Speed, 93 Acceleration and 95 Agility. He also boasts a 79 Overall.
