Timing deep cuts by Cat Phillips
Timing deep cuts is a vital part of being a good receiver; it rarely gets much attention but when you time your cuts correctly, throwing away becomes much easier (and you'll catch more goals!)

A thrower, A, stands near the middle of the field and is marked by D1. Two cutters, B and C, start 10-15m downfield.
D1 > A > B > C
Cat Phillips says:
The focus is on timing the second cut so they are turning as the first cutter catches the disc.
Also focus on having the deep cutter coming very shallow; they should turn deep from within 5-10m of where the first cutter catches the disc
