FO Madden Ultimate Team Content for March 14: Third-Down Stars

This Friday in Madden 25 Ultimate Team packs, the Football Outsiders elite stars will celebrate the receivers who had the most success converting on third downs this season. The players listed in bold will be available as new elite Football Outsiders.

WIDE RECEIVERS, minimum 20 passes
Anquan Boldin 61% (96 OVR)
Austin Pettis 60% (90 OVR)
Danny Amendola 58%
Steve Smith 56.8%
Nate Washington 56.8% (95 OVR)
Marvin Jones 56.7%
Wes Welker 56.7%

TIGHT ENDS, minimum 12 passes
Jordan Reed 79% (92 OVR)
Tony Gonzalez 60% (99 OVR)
Antonio Gates 55%

RUNNING BACKS AS RECEIVERS, minimum 12 passes
Reggie Bush 60%
Knowshon Moreno 59%
Jason Snelling 50%

Players will be released Friday morning, and yes, that Tony Gonzalez has a 99 Overall Rating, to celebrate his whole amazing career, which included seven of the top 20 DYAR seasons by a tight end since 1989. It is not a limited edition.

After this week, we'll be taking a break from having new Football Outsiders content for a couple weeks while the Madden guys concentrate on doing new cards for free agents and we concentrate on finalizing edits and fixes in our game charting data. Then we'll return with lots more FO elite stars in Madden Ultimate Team celebrating things like the guys with the fewer broken tackles and the best cornerback coverage.
