Gun Tight Offset TE – Y Out HB Swing

Today we are focusing on a play out of the Gun Tight Offset TE formation called Y Out HB Swing.  Man to man defense is getting a little more common in Madden 16 so it is good to have a few ways to beat it.

If we do this play right we should get 3 wide receivers open.

Playbook: New Orleans Saints

Formation: Gun Tight Offset TE

Play: Y Out HB Swing


  1. Put the B/Circle receiver on a slant route


  1. The first read is the X/Square receiver on the drag route.
  2. Next, the Y/Triangle receiver on the post corner route.
  3. After that progress to the A/X receiver, and the B/Circle receiver on the slant route.
  4. Lastly, if all else fails look to the running back on the check down.

Overview: This play is effective against man coverage. There is just simply to many routes that torch  man coverage for someone to user this play. Therefore, if they are in man coverage you will be able to get a big gain especially if your opponent sends a blitz while in man coverage.
