In this free Madden School tip, Mazin is back to go over one of his favorite plays in Madden 21.

It may not result in a touchdown every time, but if you make your reads correctly, it can be a nightmare to defend this play even if you know it’s coming.

Check out the full video analysis below!

Playbook: Run Heavy

Formation: Y Off Trio Wk

Play: Deep In

Setup:

  1. Put the B/circle receiver on a slant route
  2. Put the tight end on a block and release flat route
  3. Put the slot receiver on a streak route

Reads:

  1. Your first read is the slant route quick over the middle
  2.  Your second read is the post route right out of the break
  3.  Then you have a high low read with either the slant or post crossing the field, whichever route the opponent does not user
  4. Your final read is a low ball pass to the running back after he stops moving

Overview: This is one of my favorite plays in Madden, and I have posted its effectiveness for the last 4 years. The setup is slightly changed this year just to fit how the game plays, but it is just as deadly as in years past.

I like to have a slant to create a high low read with two crossing routes over the middle, so I can attack my opponents user and put them in a bind.

New to this year’s play is the added option of a low ball to the RB, as that route acts similar to a curl and cuts off the defender.
