There is no wrong way to buildyour Ultimate Team. At each tier you can find players that can be the difference between a win and a loss. Here are some great gold players to look for on the defensive side of the ball.
5. ANTHONY BARR, MINNESOTA VIKINGS LOLB
Key Ratings: 91 SPD, 90 ACC, 93 PWM, 91 PUR
Barr has the speed of a cornerback but the passrushing ability of a defensive end. Barr is one of the best players in the gold tier.
4. MYCHAL KENDRICKS, PHILADELPHIA EAGLES MLB
Key Ratings: 88 SPD, 90 ACC, 89 TAK, 89 POW, 95 PUR, 82 ZCV
Kendricks is one of the best zone coverage linebackers in the game. Just for fun he also has 88 speed. What’s not to like?
3. DAN WILLIAMS, OAKLAND RAIDERS DT
Key Ratings: 96 STR, 94 TAK, 95 BKS
Williams is a pure run stopper. It doesn’t get much better than 96 strength and 95 block shedding at the gold tier. He will be a great option for stopping the run.
2. ELVIS DUMERVIL, BALITMORE RAVENS LOLB
Key Ratings: 97 FNM, 95 PUR, 93 PRC
Dumervil will be one of the games best pass rushers throughout the entire MUT 16 season. 97 finnesse move is elite day 1 and elite towards the end of the season. He will also be great at reading HB screens as he has 93 play recognition.
1. DOMINIQUE RODGERS-CROMARTIE, NEW YORK GIANTS CB
Key Ratings: 6’2”, 90 SPD, 93 AGI, 93 ACC, 98 JMP, 94 MCV
This was a tough pick. Rodgers-Cromartie has the size and speed that is ideal for a cover cornerback, but his 61 press rating can be a major liability. What makes him special is his ability to hang with elite receivers with route running as his 94 man coverage is one of the highest in the game.
