While speed is not always the deciding factor in football, it plays a huge role in creating separation for receivers and halfbacks or closing in on ball carriers on defense. Madden 23 is no different.
Below, you will find the fastest teams in Madden 23, calculated by Outsider Gaming’s Speed Score. The Speed Score is calculated by adding the Speed attributes of every player with at least a 94 Speed attribute on all 32 teams. For example, if a team has three players with Speed attributes of 95, 97, and 94, the Speed Score would be 286. Let’s dive in!
1. Miami Dolphins (386 Speed Score)
Tyreke Hill, WR (99 Speed)
Jaylen Waddle, WR (97 Speed)
Raheem Mostert, HB (95 Speed)
Keion Crossen, CB (95 Speed)
The Dolphins have a ton of speed in Madden with Mostert, Keion Crossen, and Jaylen Waddle all at 95 or 97 OVR. In addition, they traded for former Kansas City star receiver Tyreke Hill, arguably the fastest player in the NFL. He has a 99 Speed rating in Madden 23. That speed should help immensely on offense for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Also, if you want to win the game in MUT 23 mode, you can use many mut 23 coins to bring these players into your ultimate team!
2. Seattle Seahawks (382 Speed Score)
Tariq Woolen, CB (97 Speed)
Marquise Goodwin, WR (96 Speed)
D.K. Metcalf, WR (95 Speed)
Bo Melton, WR (94 Speed)
Seattle has a lot of speed. D.K. Metcalf (95 Speed) is joined by new signee Marquise Goodwin (96 Speed) and 2022 draftee Bo Melton (94 Speed) to form one of the speediest trio of receivers in the NFL on the field. In addition, 2022 NFL draftee Tariq Woolen is given the best speed grade at 97. But he is unlikely to see much playing as he is rated 66 OVR in Madden 23. Just remember that with Seattle, you’ll firmly be in a rebuild, though bringing back one of the dominant teams of the 2010s will be easier than others in Madden 23.
3. Carolina Panthers (289 Speed Score)
Kalon Barnes, CB (98 Speed)
Robbie Anderson, WR (96 Speed)
Donte Jackson, CB (95 Speed)
Carolina is a fast team in two key areas: the secondary and wide receivers. The most potent set belongs to rookie Kalon Barnes; his 98-speed rating tops every single player in the game. Also, Donte Jackson (95 Speed) led a group of defensive backs to help them close on balls and on intended targets. On offense, newly-named and acquired starting quarterback Baker Mayfield has speedsters Robbie Anderson (96 Speed) to create some big plays, hopefully.
4. Arizona Cardinals (286 Speed Score)
Marquise Brown, WR (97 Speed)
Andy Isabella, WR (95 Speed)
Rondale Moore, WR (94 Speed)
The Arizona Cardinals arguably have the speediest trio of receivers in the NFL. Arizona’s speed is well-suited for the home stadium, and with the likes of Marquise Brown (97 Speed), Andy Isabella (95 Speed), and Rondale Moore (94 Speed), they should fly open for quarterback Kyler Murray, who can keep plays alive with his speed and elusiveness.
5. Kansas City (286 Speed Score)
Mecole Hardman, WR (97 Speed)
Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR (95 Speed)
L’Jarius Sneed, CB (94 Speed)
Even with the loss of Hill, Kansas City still has a fast team. Mecole Hardman (97 Speed) should become Patrick Mahomes’ top wideout target without Hill, and his blistering speed helps him replicate Hill’s effect on the defense somewhat. Just behind him is Marquez Valdes-Scantling (95 Speed). Defensively, the secondary is solid with L’Jarius Snead (94 Speed). Kansas City should prove a menace on either side thanks to their overall speed.
