I’ve been using them for years and know how to maximize their potential.
Against Man or Zone, WR screens can be deadly but not cheesy.
First, just like in real life, most screens are thrown to the short side of the field.
You should do the same.
As soon as you snap the ball. Throw it hard to the WR.
Sometimes it’s better to let the CPU take control of him after he catches it, it’s up to you.
Most of these screens have a backside Go route so peak at the safeties in Man to see if they come up to exploit them.
All of the screens are designed to go to the right side of the field
If your QB is left handed, it takes him almost one more second to get the ball off.
So instead, just flip the play for your lefty so he can throw to his left side so he can get the ball out quicker.
Regarding HB Screens, these are tough to pull off and only marginally work against Zone.
Just stick with the WR screens instead.
