Madden 17 Run: Singleback Big – HB Stretch

A few people have been asking for more effective Madden 17 running plays.  In this free tip, we are going over a really simple running play that should get you solid yards whether you run it to the left or to the right.

Check out the full breakdown below.

Madden 17 Money Run: Singleback Big HB Stretch

Playbook: Pittsburgh Steelers (Featured playbook, other playbooks have this play)

Formation: Singleback Big or Singleback Ace

Play: HB Stretch (Flipped)


  1. Motion the Tight end on the side you are not running to, to the side you are running to

Overview: This is one of the best running plays in Madden 17. It gets good consistent yardage, while also having the potential to break for a big run. We motion the tight end to the left to add an extra blocker so it is easier to get to the outside.

I have yet to see madden fix the issue with QB’s rolling to right or left and throwing to a player out of view, that shit has got to stop!!!

Big fan of your work fellas. But this play is not consistent, by any means. Any mildly experienced player online won’t need to send extra blitzers so much as just shift to the strong side. This will work once, maybe twice though.
