The Denver Broncos and Washington will face off in a Madden sim Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. ET. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the DFS contest centered around the game here. You can set your lineup and play at DraftKings.

Captain’s Picks

Dwayne Haskins, QB, Washington ($15,900)

Haskins has been impressive in Madden simulations. He’s thrown multiple touchdown passes in three of his four contests. Although he doesn’t have an elite targets, Terry McLaurin and Washington’s supporting receivers have been productive. Haskins’ 269.8 passing yards per game are encouraging.

Courtland Sutton, WR, Broncos ($15,000)

Denver doesn’t have a lot to offer at wide receiver, but Sutton has been lighting it up. He’s scored at least one touchdown in each of his four simulations and has five total. He’s head and shoulders above the rest of the Broncos’ receiving corp and should continue to perform at a high level.

Flex Men

Trey Quinn, WR, Washington ($4,000)

Despite being a backup wideout, Quinn as been surprisingly a consistent producer. He’s notched 118 receiving yards in two simulations and 98 in another. He’s one of the better value plays you can make. While his stats don’t jump out at you, his 86 catching is reliable.

Jordan Reed, TE, Washington ($7,800)

Reed has scored touchdowns in half of his four simulations. He hasn’t dipped below double-digits in DKFP yet and has only totaled less than 70 receiving yards in one contest. Injuries won’t be a factor the the video game Reed. He has the highest overall rating (84) and catching (87) of all Washington’s pass catchers.
