The Los Angeles Chargers and Cleveland Browns will face off in a Madden sim Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. ET.. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the DFS contest. You can set your lineup and play at DraftKings before kickoff. This game has a ton of valuable pass catchers you should watch.

Captain’s Picks

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Browns ($15,000)

Beckham Jr. is the Browns’ best receiver and has begun to prove that he’s worth captaining. Although the Chargers have a strong secondary, his 99 spectacular catch rating should help him come down with the ball while facing heavy coverage.

Keenan Allen, WR, Chargers ($15,300)

The Chargers’ receivers have a better quarterback and will face less talented defensive backs. That means Allen, a route running extraordinaire, has a good a better chance to get uncontested catches. Mike Williams (XXX) could be an interesting substitute since he’s a cheaper play with similar production.

Flex Men

Jarvis Landry, WR, Browns ($7,800)

Landry and Beckham should get most of the targets, which means they should get the most scoring opportunities. The price difference is significant between these two and stacking them would be ideal. Choosing the weapons with the most upside is the best way to maximize the potential of your lineup.

Hunter Henry, TE, Chargers ($7,000)

The Chargers’ second best pass catcher could end up being critical to the result of this game. Although he hasn’t produced like a top tier tight end so far, he has the tools to put up big numbers. With a little luck, he could hav a breakout performance.
