5 Best Offensive Playbooks In Madden 22

Note: You can find our 5 best offensive playbooks in Madden 23 here.

Choosing the right playbook is one of the easiest and most important things you can do to give you an advantage in Madden 22.

It is an unfortunate reality that only a handful of offense playbooks are usable in competitive Madden games. They have the right formations, plays, and packages to put you in a position to win more games.

Today, we will be going over 5 of the top Madden 22 offensive playbooks. Keep in mind that a lot of this will vary based on your roster and your playstyle. As the year goes on, this list will change based on what the current meta is.

Please keep in mind, these are just recommendations. You can come up with your own favorites by browsing all of the Madden 22 playbooks in our database.

Let’s dive in!

Las Vegas Raiders Offensive Playbook

The Raiders offensive playbook is often referred to as a built-in custom playbook. It has just about every popular formation you might want.

Regardless of whether you are predominantly a runner or a passer, you have lots of different option in their playbook.

Some of the best formations in the Madden 22 Las Vegas Raiders offensive playbook include:

One notable formation that was missing from their Madden 21 playbook is Gun Trips TE. That doesn’t look like it will be in their playbook in Madden 22 so if you are a fan of that formation, you may need to find a new playbook this year.

Kansas City Chiefs Offensive Playbook

The Chiefs have never really had a playbook to match their offensive firepower. That all changes in Madden 22. EA made an effort to try to match plays to a teams’ play style this year so if you love to go deep and put up points quickly, we’ve found the playbook for you.

Other Notes and Information

If you like using alternate playbooks instead of team playbooks, we still recommend the West Coast playbook as one of our favorites as well as the Run N Gun playbook.

Generally, those are the only 2 alternate offensive playbooks we recommend but as Madden 22 plays out, that can change.

As the year goes on, we will continue to add to and update this list.
