In today’s Madden School tip, we are adding another play to your Madden 19 scheme. You have 3 (sometimes 4) solid reads coming over the middle of the field.

Check it out below.

Playbook: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Formation: Gun Spread

Play: Deep Attack

Setup:

  1. Put the Y/Triangle receiver on a drag route
  2. Put the B/O receiver on an in route
  3. Motion the Y/Triangle receiver to the right side of the screen
  4. Put the RB/R1 running back on a streak (Optional)

Reads:

  1. The first read on this play is the Y/Triangle receiver on the drag route
  2. Then look for the RB/R1 running back quick out of the backfield
  3. Next look for the B/O receiver on the in route
  4. Finally, Find the A/X tight end over the middle of the field

Overview: The route combinations on this play flood basically any type of zone coverage as shown in the video. The Y/Triangle receiver on the drag route brings down the zones leaving the A/X tight end open over the middle of the field. The B/O receiver come across late on the in route leaving him open over the middle of the field.

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

This is how the play art should look right before you snap the ball. You can also put your running back on a streak route for a quick pass out of the backfield.

You can see against this cover 3 defense, we have multiple receivers getting open over the middle of the field.

We decide to throw it to our tight end for about a 20 yard gain.
