Initial Thoughts of the Oakland Raiders Offensive Playbook:
3WR 1RB Scheme:
Gun Doubles Y Flex Offset – One of the hardest plays to defend last year was surprisingly Fork Wheel due to you being able to run it so many different ways. Two Post routes combined with a wheel, a corner route and speed in by the running back. Combine it with 01 Trap and Angle Smash to give you a zone flood that attacks the sidelines creates a nice little mini scheme.
Gun Tight Slots Open – A unique formation that could catch some opponents off guard due to the fact they won’t see a lot of it. The play PA Read combined with Bench Switch and Bench give you the ability to attack with crossing routes as well as deep corner routes and short corner routes a like towards the sideline. One of the better formations in the game to attack cover 2 since you have deep corner routes to both sides of the field. On top of that, it’s one of the few formations that have a Inside zone and a HB Sweep as well as a draw
Gun Trey Y-Flex – This formation is in a lot of playbooks but it’s one of the few that has the play Levels Out as well as Flood Swap. Combine these two plays with the likes of Dagger, Levels Y Corner, SE Corner, and PA Crossers for a simple yet effective offense
