EA Sports officially unveiled the entire roster for Madden 20 last week. While everyone focuses on overall, there’s one rating that continues to kill on the field: Speed.
While not as glaringly unstoppable as it once was, having speedy players – especially at the wide receiver – can cause the defense fits. Matchups in single coverage man become especially unfair.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the fastest players in Madden 20 at launch (note: these ratings could change over course of the season with EA’s weekly updates).
- Tyreek Hill – Kansas City Chiefs – 99 Speed (94 OVR)
- Marquise Brown – Baltimore Ravens – 97 Speed (77 OVR)
- John Ross III – Cincinatti Bengals – 97 Speed (74 OVR)
- Damiere Byrd – Arizona Cardinals – 96 Speed (71 OVR)
- Rico Gafford – Oakland Raiders – 96 Speed (51 OVR)
- Marquise Goodwin – San Francisco 49ers – 96 Speed (83 OVR)
- Jakeem Grand – Miami Dolphins – 96 Speed (75 OVR)
- J.J. Nelson – Oakland Raiders – 96 Speed (70 OVR)
- Brandin Cooks – Los Angeles Rams – 95 Speed (87 OVR)
- Phillip Dorsett – New England Patriots – 95 Speed (77 OVR)
For the second year in a row, Chiefs’ wide receiver Tyreek Hill is the fastest player in the game. And with a 94 Overall, he is among the top-rated receivers in Madden 20.
Marquise Brown is a rookie this year, selected with the 25 overall pick in the draft. He may only be rated 77 overall, but at just 22 years old, he’s got plenty of room to develop.
Rounding out the top three is John Ross. Once considered the fastest in the league (99 speed in Madden 18), it seems EA has lost some faith in his speed. In any case, he’s still young (just 24) and with a decent overall (74).
If you’re looking for the top 5 wide receivers in terms of overall, then we have: DeAndre Hopkins (99), Julio Jones (98), Antonio Brown (98), Odell Beckham Jr. (96) and Michael Thomas (95).
