Curl, PA Waggle/HB Slam, PA Draw Pass/HB Draw, Slant Attack, Z-Seam
Option.
TE Option – Designed to tell whether its man or zone with the auto motion.

Setup:
Hot route the inside slot WR(triangle or Y) to an outside slant
Looks:
Your 1st look will be the TE running the option route. He will run the out route if its man coverage, but if its zone, he may run the out or the curl
Your 2nd look will be the inside slot WR running the outside slant. in man coverage, he should be open for some very nice yards.
Your 3rd look will be the HB running the streak. If he’s fast like Chris Johnson, Reggie Bush or Willie Parker, you should be able to lob it up and pass lead up for him to get some separation from the defender if he’s sort of slow. Also, look to see if someone has followed him out to the sideline. If no one has followed him out there, throw a quick bullet pass to the outside and get easy yards.

Drive Corner:

Setup:
Hot route the HB to run a slant to the left. By doing this, we give the corner route some space in zone.

PAWaggle/HB Slam – We’re going to make these plays look exactly the same,
making our opponent think we’re running the same play.
HB Slam:

Setup:
Motion the WR n the middle to the left. This makes them think were running Flood Look Curl, maybe making them ease up a bit. Slide protect your line whatever way you want, but look for the holes to open up.

Motion the WR on the right in the middle to the left.
