Madden NFL 21 MUT Best Playbooks to Win With

Also, before we start, remember that this is entirely subjective. It’s high probable that your favorite Madden playbook won’t be in the guide – the list has what we found to be the most effective. It never bodes well to fixate yourself on a single playbook which is why it remains ideal to experiment with a few playbooks and see what works for you.

Best Offensive Playbooks

When we talk about the best offensive playbook in Madden 20, nothing comes close to the Baltimore Ravens. You’ll have a lot of shotgun formations to choose from. One thing that can make this playbook even better is the additional of a fast QB. If you’re looking for a decent running playbook, you can’t go wrong with this one.

Another playbook that offers a variety of shotgun formations is New England Patriots. You should easily be able to reach the receivers on both sides when cutting to the mid-field. Some of the recommended formations include Beach Swap, PA Counter Go, Wheel Mash Switch, Shotgun: Bunch Trail, etc.

Lastly, we’ve got the Las Vegas Raiders. Don’t undermine it though as it may very well be the best one depending on your playstyle. The best thing about this playbook is that it does everything. Doesn’t matter if you’re a toter or a passer, it should’ve something for you.

Best Defensive Playbooks

Firstly, we’ve got the New York Giants and the great flexibility as well as a range of defensive options that it offers. Players who are interested in 3-4, 4-3 formations can’t go wrong with NYG. The newly added 4-3 Even looks really good, especially when going against run but we’ll need to test it out. Another good option at your disposal is Big Dime 2-3-6.

Another fan-favorite from Madden 19 which still remains viable is Detroit Lions. The playbook provides a lot of flexibility and a number of formations that it provides. If you don’t like to go into nitty-gritty of things and micromanaging a lot of stuff, you should definitely try it out. Formations like Nickel 3-3-5 and 3-3-5 Wide still remain fairly decent options.

Lastly, we’ve got Chicago Bears with a range of Nickel and Dime formations. These formations remained meta in Madden NFL 19 for the longest time and still remain decent to this date. The reason why it failed to make it to the top of the list is because of a lack of secondary defensive formations.
