Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Overall Rating: 81

Team Strategy

 

The Bucs aren’t overloaded with talent, but they do have some excellent playmakers to deliver huge gains on the field. They’re also an interesting pick for building a dynasty in Franchise.

Go-to Plays

I Form Close Flex – HB Iso

Pound the rock inside and make them put more defenders near the box to open up your deep routes downfield.

I Form Close Flex – PA TE Corner

madden-19-plays-bucs
Play action will freeze the defense, leaving the short drag open. If the drag is covered, look to the deep corner.

Shotgun Bunch – Bucs Sail

The isolated post is one of the toughest routes in the game to defend, target that as your primary option. The sideline corner is your second option and should be your go-to route against man-to-man coverage.

Scouting Report

Offensive Scouting Report

Mike Evans is your best WR in crowded spaces but doesn't deliver any big impact besides his Spectacular Catch score and size. DeSean Jackson remains one of the best vertical threats in Madden, with solid Speed and ball carrier moves for huge gains.

The biggest positional battle on this team is at TE. Cameron Brate has better hands and route running, while O.J. Howard blows his athletic stats out of the water. Brate is a great red zone target, but Howard will create more mismatches and big gains with his 87 Speed and better stick moves.

You’re likely looking at situational subs here. With decent stick skills, Roland Jones II becomes an easy start for outside runs thanks to 93 Speed. Charles Sims III is a fantastic check down option, too, while Jacquizz Rodgers is your bet for a between-the-tackles runner.

Defensive Scouting Report

Lavonte David is one of the best linebackers in the game. He's able to cover the field as well as anyone. He'll be your main play stopper with his quality quickness, coverage, and tackling numbers. 

In front of David is Gerald McCoy, a DT that's more than just a wall plugging gaps in running lanes. He can easily push through the O-line and get plays off their timing. With DEs Vinny Curry and Jason Pierre-Paul, this D-line is one of the better groups in Madden.

Your top cover guy is Brent Grimes. He is good in both man and zone assignments and has quality catch numbers. But mind your play calls. His 87 Speed can easily be burned by WR speed demons. Switch up play calls accordingly.
