How to Catch & User Catch in Madden 22
If that competent receiver is someone like Julio Jones, then you might not have much to worry about. But if the guy on the receiving end is a RB that’s notoriously bad at catching out of the backfield like Adrian Peterson, then you might need to give him a little help along the way.
When a pass goes in the direction of a receiving player, you can hit the Y (Xbox) or Triangle (PS) button in order to pull it in. Checking it down to the flats and catching with a typically wide-open back is pretty easy, but there are much more complex options for passes down the field.

Here are the three catch types you can do in Madden 22
- Run After Catch: X – Xbox, Square PlayStation
Best used to get as much yards as possible
- Aggressive Catch – Y Xbox, Triangle PlayStation
Best used to make a difficult catch
- Possession Catch – A Xbox, X PlayStation
Best used to make safe catch, with little RAC potential.
Then there’s the completely hands-off approach where you let the CPU-controlled receiver run the route and make the catch. Then you can take over control of the receiver for some YAC.
