The first official Madden 20 Team of the Week is here! Fans may be wondering why, but even in the NFL preseason, there are still heroes on the gridiron deserving of upgrades or special cards. The newest Ultimate Team program brings a group of players to the popular mode including quarterbacks Daniel Jones and DeShaun Watson, as well as stars in other positions.
Madden 20 Team of the Week program unveiled
EA revealed the first wave of players classified as “Team of the Week” stars based on their recent NFL performances. With the preseason all but finished, they are the guys who stepped it up based on EA’s opinions of their preseason work. The new TOTW program brings New York Giants rookie QB Daniel Jones to the Ultimate Team landscape as a potential QB. Giants fans are already warming up to Jones as the heir apparent to Eli Manning.
There’s also the Houston Texans’ DeShaun Watson there as another option. However, many gamers may have already decided to go with a better choice for their QB, for now. They include MUT Superstars such as Patrick Mahomes, the Baker Mayfield Epics, or the Andrew Luck M20 Tribute.
There are other players, though including Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers and Lions free safety Will Harris. Here are all of the recently revealed players, all of which bring ratings from 75 to 85 OVR.
TOTW James Washington (WR), Mack Wilson (MLB), Will Harris (FS), Tanner Hudson (TE), Daniel Jones (QB), Nate Orchard (LOLB), Mike Boone (HB) and Jermaine Grace (ROLB).

None of the cards revealed have the Power Up symbol, but that doesn’t mean they won’t work for a specific Ultimate Team lineup right now. Based on Chemistry boosts or themed teams, they could make wise decisions to add.
TOTW Hereos Dalvin Cook, Bradley Chubb
In addition to the Madden 20 Team of the Week players revealed above, there are two other enticing TOTW Heroes. There’s right outside linebacker Bradley Chubb from the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings’ halfback Dalvin Cook. Both players are 89 OVR, but that Cook card features the Power Up symbol which makes it quite attractive for MUT gamers.
To get either of the cards, gamers need to collect all 12 of the “non-Hero” players shown above. They’ll form a set that is tradeable for either the Cook or Chubb Hero card.
In addition, Madden rolled out two new TOTW challenges for gamers to participate in. In these challenges, gamers will earn stars based on completion and bonus goals. For two Stars, the reward is a Team of the Year Token. Six Stars brings a Gold+ TOTW Player, and 10 Stars brings in 1,000 Coins for the in-game bank account.
By the way, for those looking to just buy any of the players above, there’s always the Auction Browser where Coins purchase player items. Check out our guide for how to get Coins in Madden 20.
