Monday Money Play – Y-Sail

This week we’re going to be looking at a play out of Gun Doubles Y-Flex. The play is Gun Doubles Y-Flex – Y-Sail. I have only been running this play using 1 adjustment. I like to alternate between putting the Y(Triangle) receiver on a drag or a slant (drag most of the time). This play runs well both against man coverages (in route, corner/out route) and against zone (high low reads, etc).

Play: Gun Doubles Y-Flex Y-Sail
Gun Doubles Y-Flex Y-Sail

Playbooks: Bengals, Browns, Falcons, Bills, Patriots, Eagles, Broncos, Chargers, 49ers
Required Hot Routes: Drag Y (Triangle) receiver.

My first read on this play is almost always the flat route to the RB OR the drag route to the Y receiver. Most of the time I focus on pushing the flat route to the RB if the defense is not playing hard flats. Eventually it annoys your opponent into switching into hard flats or user defending the route:

When the defender switches to hard flats or user defending, it typically opens up the out/corner route on the right. Depending on who the user is using on defense it might open the in route on the left too. Against man you should be able to hit the in, the out, the drag, and even sometimes the flat to the RB.

Get some reps with it in practice mode and experiment with different motions/hot routes. This play is a great play to work into some of your schemes, especially since it is in a lot of different playbooks. As a bonus, here’s some footage of me scoring a touchdown off a broken play using this play and having way too much time to throw the ball. (Pretty bad reads on my part but ended up working out):

Hopefully this play is a good addition to your scheme! Check back next week for another Madden Money Play, and if you didn’t see last week’s play you can check it out here.
