How to Trade for Rookies in Madden 21 Franchise Mode
Trading for rookies is frustrating because you cannot really trade for them without using our methods. In this topic, we will tell you how you can get every single rookie on your team and you will be able to sign them for super cheap by using our contract tips. You also may want to check out our best rookies to trade for in Madden 21.
There is no simple answer to this as there are specific ways to trade for rookies in Madden 21, unfortunately. We can give you a generalized map of how it is done and you can check out our players to trade for as well. In general, there are two ways you can trade for rookies. The first method is by using our Stack and Trade (SAT) method. The second method is our Stack and Release (SAR) method. Keep in mind that the SAR method will only work in the regular season and easily works with a one-wave trade for REs, LOLBs, ROLBs, SSs, FSs, LTs, LG, Cs, RGs, and RTs. The other positions require specialty methods, which we cover in our players to trade for.
Great examples for the SAT method would be Jeff Okudah, Henry Ruggs III, and C.J. Henderson, and Isaiah Simmons. For Okudah and Henderson, you would pick up Richard Sherman and trade him to the Jaguars and Lions then you will be able to trade for Henderson and Okudah very easily. The reason Henderson and Okudah now become easy to trade for is that Sherman is a high overall player at the same position. Sherman has pushed them down in the depth chart and made them less valuable. You can find the details here. For Ruggs, you would use Edelman and Simmons you would us Harrison Smith. The concept of the SAT is the same across the board. If you are looking for a specific player our search will come in handy! We hope our SAT examples have helped you understand how to apply is yourself.
Patrick Queen is also a great example of the SAT and he is the key to get any other MLB in Madden 21. You would need to trade for Bobby Wagner and trade him to the Ravens, which now makes Queen tradeable. Once you have Queen, you can trade Queen to any team that has your MLB, such as Fred Warner. Then wave trade the 49ers three MLBs for a draft pick only and the 49ers will drop Warner.
For the SAR method, you will need to be in the regular season and you have to keep the opposing team at a 53 man roster.
Joe Burrow will be a great example of this because QB is a specialty position. This will require our two-wave trade method. You can read more about the two-wave and five-wave trade methods here. You will need to first trade them QB for another player. This could be any player but a QB. For example, you could trade the Bengals a QB for a second-string LT or HB. Then, you will need to trade them three QBs for a draft pick only. The Bengals have now dropped Burrow, so look for him in the free agency. You could also do the SAT method for Burrow by grabbing a high overall QB from our players to trade for.
The SAT method for Chase Young is hard to accomplish because Young is such a high-overall player that even a 99 overall RE would have little effect. However, you can utilize the SAR very easily. In the regular season, you wave trade 3 REs to the Football Team for a draft pick only and they will drop Young, so look for him on the free agency. This same thing will work for all of the positions listed above.
We hope this has helped you in trading for rookies in Madden 21. If you still have any questions then please do not hesitate to leave us a comment! Make sure you are checking out our players to trade for because we will have all of these players and more listed there.
