How To Change Your Defenders’ Assignment In Madden 22

Any good defense in Madden requires you to make at least a few adjustments from the default play in the game. Maybe you need to put a certain defender into man to man coverage, or blitz a linebacker to create pressure.

In this post, we’ll teach you how to change a specific user’s assignment on defense.

Step 1: Select the player whose assignment you want to change

After you select a play and the offense breaks the huddle, press B on XBOX One or Circle on PS4 to scroll over to the play who you want to change.

Step 2: Hit A On XBOX or X on PlayStation

This will confirm that you want to change the defender’s assignment and bring up a defensive adjustments screen.

Step 3: Choose the new assignment you want your defender to play

You will have a lot of different options. You can tell a player to blitz, QB Spy, play various zones, or play man to man defense. Just select the option you want that is listed on the screen.

Step 4: Repeat Steps 1-3

You can change as many players’ assignments as you can before the offense snaps the ball. You aren’t limited to just one adjustment.
