How To Put A Defender In Man to Man Defense in Madden 22

There will be times on defense when you’ll want to put a defender in man to man coverage on a specific receiver.

We’ll walk you through how to do it step by step below.

Step 1: On defense before the snap press Y/Triangle to bring up your defensive adjustments

Step 2: Then press Y/Triangle again to bring up your quick adjustments

Step 3: Press the button that correlates with the defender you wish to man up

Step 4: Press up on the right stick to select man coverage

Step 5: Press the button that correlates with the offensive player you wish to man the defender too

It might seem like a lot of work but once you get the hang of it, you should be able to pretty quickly put defenders into man to man defense.

  1. Is there a way to assign a defender to someone for the whole game? Example, if i have the rams and somebody has arizona, i want Ramsey on Hopkins no matter where my opponent moves him. 1, 2, slot, everywhere. each play they’re both on the field

    1. Your best bet for that is probably in the coaching adjustments to do Man Assignments by overall rating
