If the cornerback backs off, throw a jump ball up immediately to the receiver. If the corner goes in man coverage, throw a lob pass up the field to the receiver as they cut past the corner. If there's three DBs on the right, motion the receiver on the left instead and repeat the same throws

Gun Cluster HB STR, VerticalsCardinalsPut the receiver on the left on a slant route inside. Motion the receiver on the right outside, and snap the ball only after he's in position.

Offensive Money Plays Explained

It's important to remember when to use the plays we've listed above while you're playing Madden 20. You don't want to overuse them and run any one of the money plays we've listed above back to back, otherwise your opponent is going to catch on pretty quickly to what you're doing, when you're playing in an online head-to-head game.

Instead, you'll want to incorporate these plays into your offense in Madden 20. For example, it's always excellent to have a ground attack based around your running back, so start off with a run on first down. Then, if you haven't made it to the first down marker on the running play, throw a short, quick pass, perhaps a slants play, on second down.

Then, if you go to third down and you're really in need of some yardage, to go the money plays in the table above. It's better not to lead with these plays that are designed to gain huge yardage very quickly in Madden 20, but instead keep them in your back pocket for use when you really need them.
