Madden 17: Gun Bunch Offset – Deep Dig

In this free Madden school video tip, we are going over a way to beat cover 3 and cover 4 defenses in Madden 17.  This play is especially good when you need to get out of bounds to stop the clock.

Check out the full breakdown below.

Playbook: Miami Dolphins

Formation: Gun Bunch Offset

Play: Deep Dig


  1. Put the Rb/R1 receiver on a drag route
  2. Put the X/square receiver on a streak route
  3. Put the Y/triangle receiver on a blocking assignment
  4. Move the B/O receiver over to the other side


  1. Your first read is the B/O receiver on the deep out route
  2. Your second read is the Rb/R1 receiver on the drag route

Overview: This is a great play used to get out of bounds. It will get you a good chunk of yards and works against both cover 3 and cover 4 defenses.

Before the snap, press circle/b until the receiver you want to move is selected. Then once he is selected, press left or right depending on which way you want him to go in motion
