Best Superstar X-Factor Abilities for HB
It does not matter whether you are in user-play or simulation, this will apply to you. We are using Jonathan Taylor as an example because he usually has the most rushing yards 10-15 years down the road.
The best Superstar X-Factor Ability for HB is Freight Train, “Freight Trans are relentless runners who refuse to go down on first contact. When they enter the zone, this ability increases their chance to break the next tackle.”
It does not matter if you have a receiving back, elusive back, or power back, Freight Train is the X-Factor Ability we will recommend.
Best Superstar Abilities
The best Superstar Abilities are imperative to making sure you are getting the most out of your HB.
First Superstar Ability Slot
We would recommend Bruiser, “Ballcarriers with this ability have more powerful truck and stiff arm animations.”, if you do not have the Freight Train X-Factor Ability.
There are other options out there specifically for stiff arm or trucking, but why would you choose one over the other when you could have both?
If you do have the Freight Train X-Factor Ability, then we would recommend Recuperation, “Players with this ability will recover from the effects of fatigue at an increased rate between plays.”
We want the ability to keep giving the rock to our dominant HB more times than not.
Second Superstar Ability Slot
For the second Superstar Ability slot for HB, we would recommend Evasive, “Ballcarriers with this ability have steerable juke and spin animations.”
Now, if you do not have the Superstar X-Factor Ability then go with Bruiser and Evasive. This is a deadly combo.
When you get Freight Train, and have Recuperation and Evasive added on, your HB will be very well-rounded.
He won’t be a receiving back but he will be a powerhouse when he gets the ball. However, you can work on catching within your coach’s upgrades for your HBs. You can also upgrade his receiving as well.
