In today’s free Madden 19 tip, we are going over a play that beats every common coverage in the game.

Check out the full breakdown below.

Playbook: New Orleans Saints

Formation: Gun Empty Y-Saint

Play: Y Stick


  1. Put the A/X tight end on a streak
  2. Put the RB/R1 receiver on a slant


  1. The first read on this play is the RB/R1 receiver on the slant route
  2. Then look for the Y/Triangle receiver on the post
  3. If that is not there look for the A/X tight end on the streak
  4. Next, look for the B/O receiver on the streak
  5. Lastly, if all else fails check down to the X/Square receiver on the smoke screen

Overview: This play has unique route combinations that can be used against any defense. The two streaks by the A/X tight end and the B/O receiver are going to serve two purposes on this play. They will be open for deep passes against Cover 2 style defenses and against other coverages they will free up space for the Y/Triangle receiver’s post, over the middle of the field.

On the left side of the field the X/Square receiver on the smoke screen will hold down zones leaving the RB/R1 receiver open on the slant pattern to the left side.

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

This is how the final play art should look right before you snap the ball.

You can see that we have a choice of which receiver to throw it to against this defense.

We throw it to our Y/triangle receiver on the post and make the catch for 15 yards.
