With a playmaker at every position, the defending champs top all opposition in terms of roster strength. Utilize the Eagles overwhelming depth to bring home consistent wins.
While guys like Gronk and Kelce get all the attention, TE Zach Ertz is the best player on the Eagles offense not on the O-line. Ertz makes up for his lack of ball carrier moves with fantastic catch and route running skills.
No QB controversy in Madden, the choice here is Carson Wentz. Not only does he possess decent accuracy at all points of the field, he can move when in trouble, and he can break sacks better than most QBs in the game. Behind this O-line, you should have time for routes to develop. If not, take the easy yards on the ground.
There’s quite the crowd in the Philly backfield. Jay Ajayi is the top overall back and favors Stiff Arm and Trucking over Spin and Juke. Darren Sproles is the opposite. Not as fast as he used to be, Sproles remains outstanding in the pass game. He’s the ultimate check down option.
SS Malcolm Jenkins is likely the user control player of choice in Philly. He can catch, is effective in zone and man, and is the hardest hitter on the Eagles roster. If you need a turnover, he’s the one to look to.
The depth at defensive line in Philly is just absurd, featuring seven players with at least an 80 OVR. Leading this list are DE Brandon Graham and DT Fletcher Cox, powerful rushers who routinely collapse the pocket.
Jordan Hicks and Nigel Bradham are your top linebackers. Their skill set compliments the pressure up front, focused more on coverage than adding pressure at the line. Both favor zone coverage, so show blitz and pick off the easy passes when your opponent goes to slant route options.
