This Week’s Twitch Prime Legend for Madden — Fred Biletnikoff

Your fingers are about to get real sticky, because this week’s Twitch Prime Legend is Oakland Raider’s WR Fred Biletnikoff, with an 83 OVR!

Biletnikoff was born to play receiver. He once said, “I like catching passes, And I like playing outside. I would be lost if I were ever told to do anything on a football field except catch passes.” While he lacked breakaway speed, Fred caught every ball in his area code and ran routes with GPS level precision. From ‘65–‘78, he caught 589 passes, 76 TD’s, racked up 8,974 yards, and was named to 6 Pro Bowls. He also left the NFL as the all-time leader in postseason receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns, and was the MVP of Super Bowl XI. Proving once again that bigtime players make bigtime plays in bigtime games.

Biletnikoff is such an O.G. that the nation’s top collegiate receiver is given the ‘Biletnikoff award’. When your body is enshrined on a trophy, you know your career was gold.
