Updates: 8/16 – Added Double Spot

GUN TIGHT FLEX

INTRODUCTION:

We kick off Madden 19 with a very popular formation that can exploit short, deep, the sidelines, and just straight bomb our opponents. One difference you will see here is this guide focuses strictly on a single formation as opposed to multiple formations. The idea here is to allow complete mastery of a formation, and allow you to build a scheme completely by being able to choose which book you run.

Below you will find each play with its own section laid out within tabs. When possible we will also go over an advanced strategy that may require more adjustments, a complete understanding of the formation, or quicker fingers to complete the play. Make sure to learn the entire body of content to ensure that your offense is running on all cylinders.

So lets jump into it, and start learning The Gun Tight Flex Offense. Thanks for checking out the guide and be sure to tweet us @maddenturf or review us on http://facebook.com/maddenturf after you have gone through the guide to let us know your thoughts!

Gun Tight Flex

Bombs Away

Our early take on Madden 19 is that it is a game of high vs low reads. It’s the most basic concept in the game, but being able to master it can be difficult at times. What we present here is the best set of plays and setups that can help you exploit the adjustments your opponent is making. It’s not about “run this vs cover 3” and more about, you can run these any time and still gash a defense.

Please watch the overview video as we cover a few things, but mainly we show you how to get this formation using 4 wide receivers. This also allows you to have 4 wide receivers when you audible which puts a WR at the TE spot. Very fun, and very glitchy.

BENEFITS OF TIGHT FLEX:

WEAKNESSES OF TIGHT FLEX:

  • Great Man Press Defense Can Limit Available Routes
  • Blocking heat can be tricky at times

In this group of tabs we will go over the play PA Post Shot and a few different setups. This is our main play for the formation to attack deep and to the sidelines. One thing to keep in mind as well that since this is a play action play you will want to block your running back each time so that the QB does not carry out the play fake.
