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.

Playbook: Any

Formation: Any

Play: Any Cover 3

Setup:

  1. Play the sticks (Y/Triangle + LB/L1)
  2. (Optional) Man up the flat zone to the outside WR or hard flat
  3. (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.
