  1. Your main read on this play is the B/circle receiver against cover 2 man or cover 2 zone defenses.
  2. If he is covered, you can hot route any of your other receivers to whatever routes you’d like

Overview: This play is really unique because the B/circle receiver’s route can’t be jammed at the line of scrimmage. This can lead to really easy 1 play touchdowns.

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

This is how the pre-snap play art should look. Notice how we are on the left hash mark to give our B/circle receiver the most room to work with.

Right after the ball is snapped, while our slot receiver is getting pressed by his defender, our B/circle receiver gets a clean release and is already a few steps ahead of the cornerback responsible for covering him.

We make the catch before the safety has time to get over and help.

The play results in an easy touchdown.
