Today the newest member of the Madden School team, Villian, is going over a nice Madden 17 mini scheme out of the Singleback Tight Doubles formation.  It takes advantage of motioning the tight end into the backfield which creates some pretty glaring mismatches against a lot of defenses.

Check it out below.

Playbook: Baltimore Ravens

Formation: Singleback Tight Doubles

Play: PA Inside Cross

Setup:

  1. Motion TE to the left, he will rest in the Fullback position
  2. Slide protect to the right

Reads:

  1. TE coming out of the backfield, escaping through the middle of the cover 3
  2. Hot Read: The inside right WR
  3. The outside right WR, if the TE is guarded by a user

Overview:  This play is strictly a Cover 3 and Cover 3 shell beater.  Against a stock cover 3 the tight end should come open for a bullet pass no problem.  It is important to note that your tight end is running through the line of scrimmage and may potentially be caught up in traffic.  If this is the case rifle through your other two reads on the play (the crossing routes).

Against the blitz we are going to cancel the play action and drive the quarterback hard back so that he completes a quick 5 step drop.  Take one step to the right if necessary to buy time and the tight end will come open just as he does against the stock cover 3.

Playbook: Baltimore Ravens

Formation: Singleback Tight Doubles

Play: Zone Weak

Setup:

  1. Motion TE to left, snap when he arrives at the full back position

Overview: On this run, you can look to cut back where the tight end blocks if the original running lane is closed.

Playbook: Baltimore Ravens

Formation: Singleback Tight Doubles

Play: Drag In

Setup:

  1. Motion the TE to the left
  2. Streak the outside left WR

Reads:

  1. The slot receiver onm the drag route is your first look
  2. The tight end lined up in the fullback position is your second read

Overview:  This is a good passing play to mix in to prevent your opponent from keying in on the PA Inside Cross play.
