To be totally outdone by the just-released RB rankings, EA Sports has also released their list of the top five Madden 15 player ratings for the entire field of fullbacks. Due to the lack of ultra-elite talent and the odd body sizes of the players within this field (too big for running back, not big enough to be a guard, not skilled enough for the tight end position), the highest overall rating is at 93, while the lowest is at 88.
Honestly, there is not much to write home about when it comes to the fullback position; what I have to go off of for each player is limited in depth. Some of the main tasks that full backs have to do is commit to the run block in order to provide a shield for the running back behind them playing the ball. Impact Blocking helps in this regard, as well, while using the truck block skill. Fullbacks don’t necessarily have to play second fiddle to the running back entirely, however, as some of the higher-ranking player do provide some Speed, Agility and Acceleration. Plus, the ability to carry the ball effectively can always help in a pinch.
With that, here are the top five fullbacks within the NFL, according to the Madden 15 player ratings provided.
