Players include Adam Thielen, Amari Cooper, Davante Adams, DeAndre Hopkins, George Kittle, Julio Jones, Keenan Allen, Michael Thomas, Mike Evans, Stefon Diggs, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.

Todays X-Factors include the following:

Each day this week Madden will continue to share the NFL superstars that will claim the exciting new X-Factor features.

Madden NFL 21 launches on August 28, or 3 days earlier by pre-ordering the MVP Edition. EA SPORTS also offers Dual Entitlement, creating ways for players who purchase either an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 to upgrade their copy of Madden NFL 21 from prior generation Xbox One or PlayStation 4 platforms, at no additional cost.

This offer will be in place all the way through the Madden NFL 21 season, up to the release of Madden NFL 22, so players can upgrade whenever they first purchase their new console within that period. Of note, physical discs cannot currently be used to upgrade to discless consoles.

  1. The triggers for the X factors are all over the place. JJ Watts ability triggers on a single sack or TFL, Bradys on 3 5 yard completions, but the wideouts need multiple 20 yard plays.
