With the launch of the Campus Legends event, players had the opportunity to add some of the biggest names to college football to their fantasy team in Madden 22. A handful of these were free rewards that, if lucky, could be awarded for participating in the event as a decent upgrade to the current roster. Longtime fans will likely recognize names like Reggie Bush and Tim Tebow, of course. The real question is: what is the best Campus Hero to watch out for?

Here's our take on who players should pick as their best Campus Hero for the Campus Legends event.

At this point, the best Campus Hero is Buccaneers wide receiver, Joey Galloway. He has the following stats from the jump:

  • SPD: 91
  • JMP: 88
  • CTH: 85
  • CIT: 83
  • SPC: 84
  • SRR: 82
  • MRR: 85
  • DRR: 87

Galloway is a Deep Threat in Madden 22. He has the potential to be the fastest card in the game all on his own (92) thanks to the addition of his power-up. Players can boost him directly to the throne as the king of the speed stat without any sort of strategic cards or themed decks. Once added, we don't think players will be discarding this guy like they would with a rotating quarterback like Vince Young.

Although, we wouldn't begrudge those lured in by his "Escape Artist" perk.

Other honorable mentions would be Roy Williams and Phillip Buchanon, respectively. Roy Williams is a fantastic substitution for Galloway, stats-wise—apart from speed—and height-wise for some clutch catches. Raiders cornerback Buchanon adds a massive boost to the team's overall defense and fills a niche players may have found to be empty prior to the event.
