The Vikings pair a prolific offense with a stacked defense that most rosters in Madden 19 can't match. This balanced roster makes Minnesota an excellent choice for those new to the game.
The Vikings have an overwhelming trio of pass catchers with WRs Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, and TE Kyle Rudolph. Diggs is your explosive vertical threat, Thielen is outstanding in traffic, and Rudolph is money in the red zone.
Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray are your HB threats in the backfield. As strictly rushers, not much separates these two. Murray is a more powerful runner, but Cook is levels above in the pass game.
Possibly the most talked about acquisition in the offseason, Kirk Cousins is set to deliver the vertical game the Vikings have been searching for. Good under pressure with quality accuracy, Cousins is great in play action. Establish the run to set up PA and take your shots downfield.
Nothing symbolizes the power of the Vikings’ defense more than FS Harrison Smith. One of the best players in zone coverage, Smith has the Speed and Catching to rack up the User Lurks. His outstanding Hit Power can just level anyone on the receiving end of a Hit Stick.
Xavier Rhodes is one of the premiere CBs of the NFL. Skilled in zone, but devastating in man coverage, Rhodes’ Speed, Catch, and Jump make him an INT threat for anyone foolish enough to throw his direction.
Featuring monsters like Everson Griffen, Linval Joseph, Danielle Hunter, and Sheldon Richardson, the Vikings have the most complete defensive line in Madden. This makes it even more effective with blitzing linebackers. Send LB Anthony Barr on the attack with his Speed and the offense won’t know what hit them.
