Just Play: Smoke Screen

X’s & O’s: Smoke Screen

The Smoke Screen is a modified wide receiver quick screen. These types of screens can generate significant yardage, especially when they are set up to look like a run-of-the mill pass play. By bringing the H and the Y out to set blocks, it allows the Z to get into the pattern quickly without being impeded by a defensive back’s jam.
