Madden 18: Gun Spread Y Slot Wk - Double Post

Playbook: Los Angeles Rams

Formation: Gun Spread Y Slot Wk

Play: Double Post


  1. Hot route your B/circle receiver to a streak route
  2. Motion your Y/triangle receiver over to the right
  3. Either block your running back or put him on an out route to the right


  1. Against cover 2 zone or cover 2 man, your X/square receiver will get open deep
  2. Against cover 3 or cover 4 defense, look to your Y/triangle receiver (lead pass towards the sideline)
  3. If you put your running back on the out route, he is a good bailout option.

Overview: This is an extremely easy play that beats any coverage in the Madden 18.

Let’s break this play down in a little more detail…

This is how the play art should look pre-snap.  Remember, you can also block your running back if you are worried about the blitz.

We read that it is a cover 2 defense, so we know our X/square receiver will be open deep.

We catch the ball in the middle of the field, beating both defenders for an easy touchdown.
