In this Madden School tip, we are going over 1 way to stop the popular Madden 19 play, Fake Screen Wheel.
Check out the full breakdown below.
Play: Any Cover 3
- Play the sticks (Y/Triangle + LB/L1)
- (Optional) Man up the flat zone to the outside WR or hard flat
- (Optional) Press coverage
Overview: This is the quickest setup and what I believe to be the most effective setup to guard the fake screen wheel play.
The “play the sticks” adjustment makes the match rules cancel out and it plays like a regular cover 3, meaning that the deep third corner will not come in vs the seam. You can also run cover 4 against this play.
