Madden NFL 16 Washington Redskins Team Breakdown

The Washington Redskins come into Madden 16 a little bit improved from last year but they still have a ways to go before they reach the upper echelon of Madden teams.

The Washington Redskins team breakdown for Madden NFL 16 can be found below.

Team: Washington Redskins

Offensive Strategy: Get the ball to your playmakers.  Robert Griffin III will always command at least a QB spy and defensive end contains.  The threat of RG III scrambling is often more effective than trying to run around all day with him.  Pound the ball with Alfred Morris and then call a play action pass and try to go deep once the defense starts committing to the run.

Defensive Strategy: Aggressive.  You will want to blitz a lot out of the 3-4 and take some chances.  If you try to match up the Redskins defense with some of the more explosive offenses in Madden NFL 16, you will lose.  You have to try to get some sacks, turnovers, and keep the offense off guard.

Impact Players: QB Robert Griffin III, HB Alfred Morris, WR Desean Jackson, WR Pierre Garcon, TE Jordan Reed, LT Trent Williams, DT Terrance Knighton, LOLB Ryan Kerrigan, CB Chris Culliver, CB Deangelo Hall

Key Newcomers: RT Brandon Scherff, DT Terrance Knighton

Strengths: Offense.  Robert Griffin III is still one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in Madden 16.  His speed forces opposing defenses to focus on him which opens up a lot of possibilities for the rest of your offense.  DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon are extremely fast and have the ability to stretch the field.

Weaknesses: Front 7.  Ryan Kerrigan can get after opposing quarterbacks and Terrance Knighton can do a decent job stopping the run but other than that the Redskins have much to be desired up front.  If the other team neutralizes Kerrigan, it will be hard to get pressure.

Overview: The Washington Redskins are a middle of the road team in Madden 16.  Although they won’t be able to compete with some of the elite teams like the Seattle Seahawks, they will be able to hold their own against 90% of the teams in Madden NFL 16.

  1. Love the truth. This is my favorite team in the NFL. I hold this team in high regard, but let’s face it. This team is horrible in real life. I kill people online constantly with this team. I make a couple of subs and woo-lah, a beast unleashed.

    1. Agreed. You just have to know how to use them correctly and if you make a few substitutions, the Redskins are a pretty decent team.

  2. How in the world is studs like Jamison Crowder and Jerron Johnson or Basaud Breeland not mentioned?

    EA is probably going to vastly underrate the most dangerous slot receiver in this year’s draft (Crowder), and a blooming shutdown corner in Breeland.

    1. Maybe in a few roster updates

  3. I won’t use any other team and I was a beast this year so I will dominate next year!

    1. Me too I won’t use any other team on madden. As one real madden player to another I like a challenge using the redskins n not the cheese players using the elite teams to get wins. I’m SHADOWRIDER17 on ps4. If you want to add me as a friend

  4. I am a veteran madden player n always use the redskins and know how to use them and have had winning record online with them even against the so called elite teams

  5. See the problem is this. The designers are redskins haters they give teams like thing cowgirls ratings they don’t deserve. How can they rate the 49ners higher? In real life Jackson can’t be guarded but they give dez odb n others better ratings.He led the lg in plays beyond 20+ yrds etc. Our team is much improved I kno we have much better players then the eagles giants . Outside of that cowboy oline n dez that’s it ? How is scandrick better then culliver? Lol they with all the new additions should be 81 rating plus we have gallette also the pass rush is real. We have some gems in crowder Jones Smith etc. They dominated in college so y there ratings are low. If Gurley can get high ratings n he was hurt stop hating on the redskins and give them there due.

  6. One other thing d jackson should have ratings like wallace n other wr have. The skin’s have play makers on offense. And on D w are much improved hatch is healthy pot roast is a beast. Etc . It’s frustrating as a fan that in Madden they get no love. Other losing teams get better ratings lol. Plz tell me how the eagles are better when they gave up all there star power? Ijs

  7. Deangelo hall 87 speed is a LIE. He was 97 in madden 15. A.P. also tore his ACL and didn’t lose any speed, WTF.

  8. When will gallette be add to the redskins rostser and why has Hall speed been cut down so much.

    1. The first roster update usually comes out about a week after the game does to reflect roster cutdowns and ratings adjustments from the preseason. So whenever that update comes out Gallette should be added to the Redskins roster.

      As for the speed question, Madden has a new ratings Czar this year and there have been speed drops across the board. He must evaluate speed differently then the last guy did. It will be interesting to see how it plays come next Tuesday.
