Singleback Tight Slots

Playbook: New York Jets

Formation: Singleback Tight Slots

Play: HB Pitch

Setup:

  1. Motion the slot receiver or tight end to the other side and snap it before he get set (see video for positioning)

Overview: You can flip this play to either side so your opponent can’t overload one area of the field.

Playbook: New York Jets

Formation: Singleback Tight Slots

Play: HB Dive

Setup:

  1. (Optional) Motion a slot receiver or tight end to make it look like the HB Pitch play

Overview: This is an extremely difficult 2 play running scheme to defend against.

Playbook: New York Jets

Formation: Singleback Tight Slots

Play: Stick

Setup:

  1. Put your X/square receiver on an out route
  2. Put your Y/triangle receiver on a fade route
  3. Put your B/circle receiver on a streak route
  4. Put the A/X receiver on whatever route you would like and motion him to the left (see video)

Reads:

  1. Against a cover 3 defense, hit the Y/triangle receiver deep (lead pass towards the sideline
  2. Look to the tight end if your primary route is covered

Overview: This is an extremely versatile concept because it beats cover 3 deep and looks exactly like the running plays from this formation.

Playbook: New York Jets

Formation: Singleback Tight Slots

Play: HB Wheel

Setup:

  1. Put your Y/triangle receiver on a streak route
  2. Put your B/circle receiver on an out route
  3. Block your running back
  4. Do whatever you want with your tight end
  5. (Optional) Slide protect to the right

Reads:

  1. Against a cover 3, look to your X/square receiver on the deep post

Overview: This is a deep shot against cover 3 defenses.  It attacks the cover 3 using a post route instead of our normal out route/fade route combo.  Remember, any of these plays can be flipped and ran to the other side so your opponent can’t key in on one side of the field.

Looks like the Cover 3 Beater isn’t working anymore…
At least not for me since the latest update!
Worked fine before :/
Or is it just me being too stupid? 😀

With the CB’s and safeties coming out in MUT I can’t really see some of the deeps routes working, in regs I’m sure it would work. Have you tried any of the plays in MUT? zone coverage and man is mostly 92 and above these day’s and EA makes it pretty easy for any scrub to buy anyone they want
