You're complaint is about sliders and what they do/don't do and how they affect ratings.


I get it but this thread is solely about the ratings of the players. Nothing else.

We have a plethora of other complaint threads open if you want to discuss your issue with how sliders work.

And I'm not disagreeing you, just saying it doesn't need to be talked about here. Any other questions PM me. No need to continue to derail this thread.

So what does the elusive rating actually do? We already have agility and speed and ratings for juke and spin. So how does elusiveness play into it?

You say Kuhn isn't the best fullback in the league?

Let me present exhibit A:



There will be no need for any further evidence. The defense rests.

I think Julio will still make the top 5 despite the injury.

I absolutely agree. Oakland Raiders' Marcel Reece is one-of-a-kind. At 6'3" and 250 lbs, this guy actually played wide receiver in college. He also started several games at running back last season when Oakland's top two RB's went down with injury, including a game where he had 123 rushing yards and a 63 yard TD run. During his brief NFL career, he has been lined up at fullback, running back, tight end, wide out and slot receiver.

And in the virtual world of Madden football, a fullback with a 90 speed rating and an 85 catch rating is completely unheard of. If the Raiders ever find a way to fully utilize his unique skill-set, Reece will revolutionize the fullback position, very similar to the way Jimmy Graham has done with the tight end position.

Blocking, blocking, blocking. Reece is a great running FB but he is not a huge impact in pass protection. Kuhn is a short-yardage back, who is excellent in pass protection (i.e. what Full Backs are called on to do in today's league, if they are called upon at all).

Blocking isn't as important for TEs any more but it is still crucial for FBs (because most teams would rather give the ball to a RB than the slower FB - I know Reece isn't slow, but he is slower than your RBs).

He did Aaron Rodgers is rated at 98 overall, if you are referring to Brady being a 93, take a look at his last 3 seasons, last year was especially down but he hasn't been the dominant QB he has been in the past. I think he's a better QB than Wilson, so I find it odd that he is sitting at a 93 with him (pulled the same overrating crap when Eli Manning won the SB too, though I think Wilson is a more solid/consistent QB than Eli).

You mean they will line up a RB at FB like they line up a WR at TE? If he isn't being asked to block on a regular basis then he is a HB lined up where a FB would normally be. That isn't revolutionizing the position of FB, that's changing what kind of player you line up at a particular spot in a formation.

If being a FB meant you lined up at a certain spot then Jonathan Dwyer would have to be considered one of the greatest Fullbacks to ever play college football (because he as a running back lined up at the B-Back position in the Triple Option, which is lined up exactly where a FB would be in a regular offense).
