It’s always a good idea to have a play that you know will work to start off every game.  In today’s free Madden 18 tip, we are going over a passing play that gets the same receiver open against every coverage in the game.

Check out the full breakdown below.

Playbook: Carolina Panthers

Formation: Weak H Slot

Play: PA Draw Shot

Setup:

  1. Hot route your tight end to a drag route

Reads:

  1. Your first read against every coverage is the X/square receiver over the middle of the field.
  2. Your A/X tight end on the drag route is your checkdown option in case your first read is covered or you are under pressure.

Overview: This is a great first play of the game to get you started the right way.  Don’t call this play too often because if your opponent knows it is coming, he will be able to manually cover the X/square receiver.

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

This is how the play should look right before you snap the ball.  The only adjustment is to put your tight end on a drag route

Against cover 3 and cover 4 defenses, the middle part of the field is wide open.  The middle linebacker comes up to cover our fullback.

We are able to catch the pass for a gain of around 25 yards.
