Wild-Card FO Players for Madden 17 Ultimate Team

Once again this season, we have teamed up with EA Sports to bring Football Outsiders-branded player content to Madden 17 Ultimate Team. Each week, we choose a handful of players who starred in that week's games. Some of them will be well-known players who stood out in DVOA and DYAR. Others will be under-the-radar players who only stood out with advanced stats. We usually announce these players in the DVOA commentary article, and the players will be available in Madden Ultimate Team packs the following weekend, beginning at 11am Eastern on Friday. We also tweet out images of these players from the @fboutsiders Twitter account on most Fridays. The best player of each week, the Football Outsiders Hero, will require you to collect a set of the other four Football Outsiders players that week, plus a certain number of Football Outsiders collectibles available in Madden Ultimate Team packs.

This week, we weren't able to get the players finalized for the Monday playoffs DVOA article, so here they are for you:

  • CB Richard Sherman, SEA (FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS HERO): Completely shut down right side of the field, only targeted once by Detroit.
  • ROLB Jonathan Casillas, NYG: 9 tackles or assists on runs for a combined 17 yards.
  • WR Andre Holmes, OAK: No. 3 WR with 53 DYAR for wild-card weekend (4-for-5, 50 yards, TD).
  • RG T.J. Lang, GB: Helped keep Giants pass rush way from Aaron Rodgers for numerous long scramble plays.
  • P Jake Schum, GB: 3 punts landed inside the 12, and only 4 return yards allowed on 6 punts.

Good job on this throughout the years guys. Since the year is almost over, hoping you guys put big name players up such as this Sherman which will force EA into making some better cards for them. The madden community will be grateful
