A new update for Madden 21 Ultimate Team is targetted to come out on Tuesday, March 23rd. It will raise the ability point cap from 12 to 15.

It is also the end of the “One Step Ahead” meta defense as that ability now costs 6 points across the board. That means you will be able to equip no more than 2 players with One Step Ahead.
