The Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns face off in a Madden sim on Saturday, and DraftKings will have a Showdown DFS contest for the matchup. We break down the ideal lineup strategy, and you can set your lineup here.

Captain’s Picks

Courtland Sutton, WR, Broncos ($13,800)

Sutton has been a breath of fresh air for the Broncos’ offense despite their underwhelming quarterback and receiving corps. Drew Lock has an overall rating of 68, so he’s likely to have the most success throwing to his top target. Sutton has been one of the more productive players at his position so far and has a good chance to lead Denver in DKFP.

Jarvis Landry, WR, Browns ($11,700)

Odell Beckham Jr. and Baker Mayfield will probably be among the most popular captain’s picks, but I’d opt for another pass catcher instead. He’s the cheaper option and won’t be matched up against Chris Harris Jr. Landry has outperformed or matched Beckham’s level of production on more than one occasion.

Flex Men

Kareem Hunt, RB, Browns ($3,200)

Hunt was one of the RB2s who showed a ton of promise early. But the presence of Nick Chubb and his recent performances might cause some to fade him. I think he remains a quality value play option who could be a difference maker because of his versatility.

Noah Fant, TE, Broncos ($6,600)

Fant is the Broncos’ second best pass catcher. His speed (89) sets him apart from other players at his position and gives him a chance to rack up yards after the catch on short routes.
