M17 Dollar Set-Ups

Dollar has become one of the heaviest used formations in Madden 17, however most people don’t know how to do much from the formation. They rely on switching up coverageĀ and hope to confuse their opponent.

Dollar Flipped Confusion Defense

The Main thing you will notice about this defense is that the Slot DB’s immediately Swap Sides, Most Would See this as a Problem, But actually Can Be very useful in certain situations!! There really isn’t specific set-ups for this so I decided the best way to explain is threw video only!!!
