Hey everyone, just over a year ago we launched the Muthead Leagues feature. If you’re not familiar with it, it provides the basic structure to organize and manage any kind of Madden (or even Madden Mobile) league with up to 16 players. You can invite people to join you, generate randomized schedules with a single click, record results, generate playoff brackets, and continue for as many seasons as you would like.
The whole idea is that we provide the essential structure to run a league, and all the fun and creativity is up to you. You can play Madden they way you enjoy it most with other people who enjoy playing Madden the way you do.
Do you have a cool idea for a league? Let us know!
If you have an idea for a Muthead League that you would want to run, post your ideas in this thread. We will be selecting several leagues to sponsor with prizes for the season 1 champion. The winner of each league selected will receive a Muthead Leagues box which contains a t-shirt, a glass, a mini football, and stickers.
Here are two examples to get you thinking about what kinds of Muthead Leagues you would want to play in:
Pack and Play
Each participant creates an entire roster of only silver MUT players. Each participant opens 10 Gold Player packs. All gold or better players opened in these packs can be added to the roster. After each completed league game, each participant gets to open two more Gold Player packs and gold or better players can also be added to the roster.
Each participant creates an entire roster of only silver MUT players. The league then has a two-round snake style draft in which each participant drafts 1 unique player on each side of the ball. Each participant is allowed to have any MUT item of their selected player in their lineup. This results in one dominant player on each side of the ball which will stand out dramatically compared to the other players on the field.
If you have a cool idea for a Muthead League and would like to be the commissioner, please share it with us! We’re excited to send out some cool Muthead gear and hopefully get several of you involved in active Muthead Leagues.

I think a cool one would be a literal salary cap.. going by what each card's average Muthead price is and make a cap of say, 200,000 coins. Each player can pick any players they'd like as long as the cost when plugged into the Team builder comes to under 200k (or whatever number). Any pure NAT player would get assigned a set value, so cards like team leaders, etc. Power up cards would count for whatever the highest overall piece that goes into the set would be.
I think an all time team league would be cool. Some teams might have a higher overall than others, but for those of us who put in the time to make theme teams like my all time Bengals team, we would like to play one another and use these teams competitively. The limitations would be that the players had to play at least 1 season on that specific team (draft cards would be the only exception to this rule). Lineups should be made via team builder so we can view and review lineups. Also, people wouldn't be able to use an all division team, it has to be one team only.
Users request to join the league, and when the league gets 32 people, they can get together and pick their teams. Then the real fun begins, with users getting to do a 2-part draft. Part 1 will be to draft the primary players (a.k.a. the starters). Part 2 will be to draft the necessary backup players. Any players not selected (most likely the silver and bronze players) will be like free agents, available for pickup. Trades will be allowed after the 2nd part of the draft is over.
The schedules will be assembled by the league commissioner. 16 weeks, plus 1 bye week. Playoffs will be in an 8-team format, 16 teams total (one side AFC, one side NFC). So the matchups will be 1 v. 8, 2 v. 7, etc.
Added bonus: MADDEN COINS! Each user receives 10 Madden coins per regular season win, 5 per loss. Playoff wins will be 15 coins, 7 for playoff losses. If you win the Super Bowl, you get 20 coins, 10 if you lose. And, if someone is to go 19-0, they receive an extra 25 coins.
I personally love to run theme teams and at the moment one of the team I run has all sig players
I think a league where each participant is randomly drawn a program to draw players from for their roster i.e.. Sig Team, Snowbeast Team, TOTY Team, TOTW team, Thursday Night Football, VET team, Gauntlet Team etc. To minimize too much variance in overalls the number of selections per side of ball can be capped for the program and rest of teams field out with gold players of need be. In essence a battle of the programs league.
