It’s one of the first ratings we all go check right away. A players speed rating is one of the most vital ratings to most all Madden players. In recent years, a higher speed rating doesn’t even carry as much weight as it used to, but we cling to it nonetheless. With that said, the pros at Madden School have been doing their homework. Today, we’ve put together our list of fastest defenses to use in Madden 18.
The Cardinal defense is flat out loaded with speed at most all of the important positions. LOLB, rookie, Haason Reddick is at an amazing 88 SPD rating while both safeties, FS Tyrann Mathieu and SS Tyvon Branch blaze the field up with their 90 SPD ratings.
When you add in MLB Deone Buchannon’s 89 SPD, and ROLB Chandler Jones 80 SPD ratings, the Arizona Cardinal defense is stocked with fast players who can chase down the football.
The Atlanta Falcons defense is one of the fastest units in the entire game, and they’re one of our young defenses to build around in CFM. From D-lineman to the secondary, Atlanta’s D is filled with speedsters. LOLB Vic Beasley is sporting a whopping 88 SPD rating while the other members of the LB crew are as well. Both MLB Deion Jones with an 89 SPD rating and ROLB De’vondre Campbell with an 85 SPD rating help make up one of the fastest LB corps in Madden 18.
Factor in the Falcon secondary with CB Desmond Trufant’s 92 SPD and FS Ricardo Allen’s 89 SPD, and Atlanta can certainly chase down some of the game’s faster WR corps.
New York Jets
Wow, the Jets finally make one of our lists. We kid, but the Jets defense is actually pretty fast. Aside from the D-line, which is meant to be stronger than faster in the Jets defensive system, the Jets defense is really fast. Their secondary is probably the fastest unit in Madden 18.
CB Darryl Roberts sports a 92 SPD while CB Morris Claiborne has a 90 SPD rating. The real dangerous speed on the Jets defense sits with the two rookie safeties. FS Marcus Maye has a whopping 90 SPD rating while SS Jamal Adams is one of the faster players at his position with a 91 SPD rating. Combined, these two safeties are capable of covering some of the faster WR duos in Madden 18.
Those are only three of the fastest defenses in Madden 18. Who are some of the teams you feel deserved to make our list. Maybe the Minnesota Vikings? The Chicago Bears sport a pretty fast defense. Do you feel we really robbed a team of our list?
