As week 6 of the NFL season has come and gone, the Team of the Week set has been unleashed. This week features the best overall card to this point in the season. A 93 overall Melvin Gordon card is up for grabs if you manage to obtain both the offensive and defensive bosses this week.
This card is actually worth putting in the work and trading in the bosses. With 91 speed, 90 acceleration, 94 carrying, 92 agility, and 88 break tackle this card could single handedly take your run game to the next level.
Melvin Gordon deserves this card as well, after having 3 touchdowns and 150 yards from scrimmage, he has consistently looked like one of the best, if not, the best running back in the league this year for the Chargers. This card is also available on the market for upwards of 500,000 coins and won’t be easy to fit into some salary cap teams. (58 cap)
Offensive Boss: This weeks offensive boss is Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons, the 6’4 pocket passer threw for 354 yards and 3 touchdowns against Tampa Bay’s struggling defense and helped them edge out a 34-29 win. 91 throw power, 91 throw accuracy short, and 93 play action makes Ryan a great choice for anyone who likes to sit in the pocket and deliver the football to receivers. (46 cap)
Defensive Boss: Josh Norman of the Washington Redskins had 5 tackles, an interception, and a forced fumble to help the Redskins frustrate Cam Newton and take down the Carolina Panthers 23-17. The playmaking cornerback has 90 zone coverage, 88 man coverage, 87 speed, and 91 agility. (46 cap)
To get these players is usually the challenge as you need to collect the rest of the TOTW 6 players listed below.
Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys stunned the Jaguars top ranked defense with 3 touchdowns and also kept plays alive all night with his legs recording a career high 82 yards. The 6’0 quarterback has 87 throw power, 84 throw accuracy short, and 85 throw on the run. With just 78 speed he isn’t Vick, but can still manage to get out of the pocket and make a play every now and then. (36 cap)
John Johnson III the Los Angeles Rams strong safety, had an interception and 4 tackles to edge out the Broncos 23-20. The defensive back has 89 acceleration, 87 hit power, and 84 speed. (40 cap)
Latavius Murray of the Minnesota Vikings had a career high on the ground with 155 rushing yards and a touchdown against the Cardinals. With 89 speed, 91 acceleration, and 87 agility he could be the back that gives spark to some offenses in MUT heading into the future. (33 cap)
Frank Clark, the LE of the Seattle Seahawks went off Sunday, he had 2.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles that his team recovered. They soared above the Raiders 27-3. This card has 87 power moves, 86 acceleration, and 84 strength. (35 cap)
Austin Hooper of the Atlanta Falcons helped Matt Ryan in a major way this weekend. The 6’4 TE had 9 receptions and a touchdown to help aid his team to victory. Hooper’s card features 80 run block, 80 speed, and 78 catching. (32 cap)
Desmond King, cornerback of the Los Angeles Chargers probably had the best defensive week of anyone in the NFL with 5 sacks and 2 interceptions to help stomp out the Browns 38-14. The undersized corner makes up for size with 85 speed, 88 acceleration, and 91 agility. (27 cap)
Cole Beasley, wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys made fantasy owners extremely happy this week. He had 9 receptions, 101 receiving yards, and 2 touchdowns in the big win over the Jaguars. The 5’8 slot receiver has 84 speed, 87 jumping, and 80 short route run. (24 cap)

Albert Wilson, wide receiver of the Miami Dolphins made a name for himself this week with 6 catches, 155 receiving yards, and 2 touchdowns to upset the Bears 31-28. He will have to continue to play well to be on most teams starting MUT squads but still features 90 speed, 86 jumping, and 73 catching. (25 cap)
Leighton Vander Esch has proven himself to be solid starter in the middle of the Cowboys defense. The LOLB lead the team with total tackles, recording 10. This card has 88 acceleration, 81 speed, and 81 tackle. (29 cap)
