In the Huddle: Madden News for Week 3

Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season is finished, and Week 3 is underway with a full slate of games for the coming weekend. Ryan Fitzpatrick is an early contender to be in the Team of the Week next week, but who made the cut after Week 2? If you’re a Madden Ultimate Team player, you’ll want to pick these players up as fast as you can:

Madden 21‘s Team of the Week for Week 2 is headlined by two heroes from recent NFL history. On offense, 89 Overall Marvin Harrison is the Week two hero. On defense, you can add 89 Overall Middle Linebacker D’Qwell Jackson to your squad. Being still early in the Madden 21 MUT cycle, both players will likely give a huge boost to your existing MUT lineup.
