Smoke N Go

X’s & O’s: Smoke & Go

The Smoke Screen is a modified wide receiver quick screen. But this is a Smoke Screen Fake, for all practical purposes. It is run much like a Smoke Screen, except the Y fakes his block on the corner, stutters and runs a Go Route. The QB also plays the fake to the Z and then throws to the Y on the Go Route.
