Running the Ball is something that you will need to learn if you plan to go deep into the game and our Madden NFL 19 Running the Ball Guide will give you some amazing Tips and Tricks on how to run the ball.
Madden NFL 19 Running the Ball
In order to run the ball between your players, you need to learn a few techniques which will be very advantageous to your play.
One of them can be the Jump Cut which means that you can cut the other way and get a huge acceleration boost at the same time. To perform the jump cut, you need to press RT while running the ball.
You can use the jump cut to dodge your way between the defense and show off what you can do on the ball.
This will be working even better when you go against real players since they will not have a system to their movements and you will be able to take advantage of this fact. Remember that you need to press RT when you change direction.
If you hold the RT button while cutting from one side to the other, you will be much slower.
You can also use the Left Trigger along with the right stick to juke the opponent. This is much slower than the cut but you will still be able to use it as it has a much more deceptive ring to it than the cut does.
You can also perform the precision spin by using the LT together with LT and then moving the left stick. This spin will be great for playing against humans as they will not be able to predict your spins and will be left flabbergasted.
Another move that you can do which will be incredibly beneficial for you will be performed right from the kick off. This involves hitting RT and then using the Right Stick to juke around.
This move is perfect for playing against CPU defenders rather than players as players can see through it. However, the CPU players will begin their animation to account for your movement and then you can juke to dodge them quite easily.
Your plays also help immensely on whether or not you are successful with the run game. The stretch play seems to work very well for most people but you may not be in them. As such, it is best to try many different plays to see how they work.
Once you have discovered the play that works best for you, you can use that play to abuse opponents and make sure you come out ahead.
One important thing to note that many people do not know is that you should never use turbo behind the line of scrimmage. This will cause other players to block shed and you will not be able to do anything.
It is best to press turbo as soon as you cross the line of scrimmage. That way, you will not be speeding up the enemy’s block shed as well.
Lastly, remember to have balance in your attack and never run a single type of attack. This will allow you to be versatile and make you less predictable.
You will also be able to look for areas which have holes to run plays there and take advantage of them.
Formation is really important when you are trying to run the ball. Keeping more players with your QB will gain you significant advantage on a run play along with running back in the backfield.
Formations in which you have a fullback to support your running back are the best running formations in Madden 19. That is because fullback will block the first defender that will come once your running back gets the ball
Pistol is another formation that has a huge impact when you are looking to block the players that are coming for your running back.
Fullback dive and Close Sweep are beneficial when you are on the goal line or in a third and short scenario.
Different situations demand different type of running backs. A power back is used when you want to show your strength on the field while a speed back is used when you are trying to use speed for your advantage.
