Madden 15 Guide: Using Wheel Routes Against Man to Man Defense

Playbook: Any

Formation: Any

Play: Any


  1. Hot route RB to wheel route
  2. Motion RB outside so he is on the line of scrimmage


  1. Wheel route
  2. Any underneath routes

Overview:  This year with CB’s playing off coverage much better, especially against deep 9 (go) routes, you have to be more creative in order to get guys open deep. One sure-fire way to do this is by using HB wheel routes against linebackers and safeties. When used in combination with drag routes, slant routes, and other underneath routes, you can march down the field very quickly and then hit your opponent over the top with a wheel route for a huge gain. It’s always important to know your matchups, and when your RB is matched up with a linebacker or safety, it’s up to you to know how to take advantage of that, and using wheel routes is a great way to make your opponent re-think those matchups.
