Re: Are RBs worth the money

I always tag and then trade RB’s after their deal expires. That way I get draft compensation for it.

Re: Are RBs worth the money

If you're playing Madden on PS4 / XBOX One, you probably should replace Cook with someone who is faster and adds more obvious value in the passing game. Since players reach top speed incredibly quickly on that console, small differences in speed matter tremendously. If you are in a franchise where you area allowed to edit ability assignments, Cook can be worth keeping if you use abilities to increase his ability in the pass game.

On PS5 / XBOX Series X, the way players move has changed significantly. Top-end speed matters less and small-area player movement matters a lot more. Dalvin Cook is absolutely elite with respect to short-area burst (I don't even have very good stick skills and he jukes people easily in space), so I'd argue he's plenty worth extending on those consoles, especially if you find ways to incorporate him into the passing game.

Generally speaking, probably don't extend a running back with a big-money deal if he can't contribute in all phases of the offense.

Not in Madden and pretty much not in the real NFL.

Re: Are RBs worth the money

Speed has always been the top thing in this game, I could have a 100 yard rusher with 95 plus speed who is low rating but because of his speed i was able to rack up yards and points.

Some rbs in the game though I know just seem to always be good no matter (Barkley for example)

I'd take a slower rb for one who gets to top speed faster.


(I've played the PS5 version, so it may be different for the previous gen)

Re: Are RBs worth the money

if they end up being 90+ overall before their rookie contract is done then i'd say maybe depending on what the rest of your team looks like at the time.

but otherwise no as you can find decent ones in free agency/draft and they'll get the job done.

Re: Are RBs worth the money

I assume you're playing an offline franchise but for online next gen the meta seems to be hit sticking the crap out of everything. In that case I'd trade a good amount of speed for better carrying stats.
