Keeping up with the current Playoff atmosphere, EA has released Playoff Legends this weekend, featuring Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and Saints CB Marshon Lattimore. Playoff Legends work the same way as the normal Saturday releases, but instead of retired Legends, we have active players who have come up big in a previous year's Playoff game.
Russell Wilson is an Improviser QB with 94 SPD, 97 THP, 97 RUN, 96 MAC, and 95 DAC ratings. Wilson can equip the Escape Artist Ability for 5 AP and the Gunslinger Ability for 6 AP. Due to the recent AP increase on these Abilities, it may be worth opting for Pass Lead Elite at 3 AP instead of Gunslinger to save some AP.
Marshon Lattimore is a Man to Man CB Archetype with 97 SPD, 96 ACC, 97 MCV, 97 ZCV, and 96 JMP ratings. With 97 stock SPD, Lattimore can easily hit 99 SPD multiple ways with strategy items or theme team boosts. He's not only entering MUT as the fastest CB currently available; he's also tied for the highest MCV and ZCV ratings in MUT as well. So yeah, he's going to enter MUT as the best CB available. A few good defensive Abilities to consider equipping on Lattimore are Acrobat (2 AP), Mid Zone KO (2 AP), or Deep Route KO (2 AP).
LTD versions of Wilson and Lattimore can be found in packs until 10 AM ET on Monday, January 24th. Each player's 96 OVR Boss Edition can be earned by completing their set (details under Sets).
