Known Thresholds (via Mutleaks)

I find this info very informative when choosing players or offensive/defensive chemistry.

Defense/Coverage:

  • Press = 90
  • Beat Press = 90
  • Man Coverage = 90
  • Curl Zone Tiers = 60, 70, 75, 80
  • Flat Zone Tiers = 60, 70, 75, 80
  • Deep Zone Tiers = 60, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90
  • Hook Zone Tiers = 60, 70, 75, 80, 85, 90

Defense/Tackling:

  • Medium hitter unlocks at 80
  • Big Hitter unlocks at 90
  • Minimum Hit Power to hit stick is 75
  • Max weight difference modifier for Hit sticks is +/- 40 in weight
  • Strip Ball 90 Tackle and 20 rating difference between Carrying and Tackle.
  • Max weight that matters is 350 Pounds
  • Fall forward at +20 weight(must be at least 190)
  • QB cannot break a sack if the defender has 99 tackle

Blocking:

  • 89 Run Block for full bonuses besides Win%
  • 85 awareness for a chance at enhanced O-Line Targeting, 99 awareness grants a 100% chance. (Affects all positions not just O-Line)

  • Break Tackle = 90
  • Spin move tiers = 65, 79, 88
  • Stiff Arm tiers = 65, 78, 90

  • Dive Tiers = 65, 78, 90

Passing:

  • Short Accuracy = 80
  • Medium Accuracy = 85
  • Deep Accuracy = 90
  • Play Action = 90

Receiving:

what do these thresholds actually do?

For example: The spin and juke thresholds make those moves faster. Route running thresholds make the route cuts faster.

I feel like 90 throw power is a threshold. Felt like there was a difference when Steve young was sub 90. I don’t know if mutleaks ever confirmed it but early on some of us believed it.

The other one I see absent is 90 power move and finesse move. This is a great guide.

That would make sense, since so many other thresholds are 90.

Ya some of these we were looking at the first month.
A side note: I really want a heavy d tackle. My team feels incomplete without one.

Linval Joseph may be a good/cheap option. I slide him to DT and Page to RE in the 4-6 for some extra beef.

Ya I looked at him. They still have Vita vea as the no. 1 3-4 d tackle and he was released forever ago it seems.

I do believe 99 is a threshold for passing mechanics. I have Vick at 99 TOR and every throw on run is deadeye regardless how close a defender is and I don’t have an ability for that.
