Madden 18: Gun Ace Slot Offset – Post Shallow Wheel

In this Madden School tip, Stickwork is going over a play he uses that gets multiple people open against every defensive coverage in Madden 18.

You can check out the full breakdown below.

Madden 18: Gun Ace Slot Offset - Post Wheel Shallow

Playbook: Seattle Seahawks

Formation: Gun Ace Slot Offset

Play: Post Wheel Shallow


  1. Put the A/X tight end on a streak route
  2. Put the Y/Triangle tight end on an out to the left
  3. Put the running back on a curl route


  1. The first read is the running back on a curl route
  2. Then look for the Y/Triangle tight end quick
  3. Next you should progress to the wheel route by the B/O receiver
  4. If that is not there look for the X/Square receiver over the middle
  5. Finally, if all else fails look for the A/X tight end on the streak

Overview: This play usually results in huge yardage against Cover 3 and Cover 2 style defenses. It also has short quick passes that will give your opponent a headache.  It makes it extremely difficult to account for all the different routes.

Let’s take a look at how this play works.

This is how the play art should look directly before we snap the ball.

You can see against a cover 3 defense our Y/triangle tight end on the quick out route is open right away.

But we also have our B/circle receiver open deeper along the sideline for about a 20 yard gain.
