ESPN has come out with a brilliant initiative to entertain people while they are at home under this lockdown. “Madden NFL 20 will bring together athletes, celebrities, and ESPN personalities to compete against each other over the next week.”.
This seems to be one of the best ways to get creative with a range of talent. The celebrities and players are participating to raise a donation that will be “feeding America.”. During these bleak times, this is one of the best ways to keep people entertained as well as support a noble cause.
“Like our broader content efforts on digital and social platforms, esports and gaming are core to our audience expansion priority,” this was what ESPN vice president of social content Ryan Spoon had to say.
The included players are – Baltimore Ravens receiver Marquise Brown, Arizona Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs, New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan. Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock, Broncos running back Melvin Gordon. Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
Even UFC superstars like Daniel Cormier and Chris Weidman will be taking part. Along with them, we will see prominent rappers like Lil Yachty, YG, and the OG Snoop Doggie Dogg. Snoop even updated a post on his Instagram to let his fans know which team to support.
The tournament will have the same format as NBA 2K did, and similarly, the prize money distributed for the charitable cause.

Here are the first-round picks that were finalized. DeAndre Hopkins vs. Lil Yachty. Marquise Brown vs. YG, Snoop Dogg vs. Travis Kelce. Omar Raja vs. Stefon Diggs, Daniel Cormier vs. Drew Lock & Katie Nolan vs. Pat McAfee.
Who are our favorite picks going to be for that champion spot? We suggest you start with Snoop Dogg. He is known to be a Madden freak who knows all the ins and outs of the game, he has been streaming Madden on Twitch for a long time. Our second picks would be Marquise Brown, ‘Hollywood’ definitely knows how to play the game better than others. We will just have to wait and watch about who claims that champion spot.
