Formation: Gun Trio Y-Flex

Play: Dagger


  1. Motion your Y/triangle receover to the right


  1. Your first read on this play is always the A/X tight end on the drag route. If he is open, throw it to him
  2. If he is covered, that means your running back on the delayed circle route will be open. Throw it to him as he makes his first cut up field.
  3. The next read is the B/circle receiver on the crossing route
  4. Your last read is the X/square receiver on the deep in route

Overview: If you make your reads right on this play, it is just about impossible for your opponent to stop. You have 4 really good options that should all come open at different times.

Hey Madden players – if you’re trying to decide what channel you should follow and subscribe to, I am here to tell you – don’t look any further than where you are right now!

The instructors at Madden School are game changers! I’ve been with Madden School since I started playing Madden 16, and they’ve taught an old dude like me (in my 50’s) how to dominate teenagers and young adults who were practically born with a game controller in their hand!

Believe me. If you want to take your Madden game to much higher levels of play – join the Madden School!
