The Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins will face off in a DraftKings Madden sim Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. ET. We break down the ideal Showdown strategies for the contest centered around the game, and you can set your lineups here.

Captain’s Picks

Carson Wentz, QB, Eagles ($17,100)

We’re still waiting to see a monster game from Wentz, and this is one of his best opportunities to have one. The Eagles don’t necessarily have a dominant wideout to tear up the Dolphins’ poor secondary, but they do have enough offensive weapons to take

Miles Sanders, RB, Eagles ($13,800)

Sanders is coming off a ridiculous game and has proved to be Philadelphia’s most versatile player. He tallied more than 50 DKFP in his last outing and is a threat running between the tackles and as a pass catcher out of the backfield. Miami is weak on the defensive line and at linebacker, so Sanders has a high ceiling in this matchup.

Flex Men

DeVante Parker, WR, Dolphins ($8,800)

The Eagles have a great defensive line, but aren’t very talented in their secondary. Parker has the speed (91) and spectacular catching (92) to make some big plays against underwhelming defensive backs. Miami will likely be forced to thrown often because of its stagnant rushing attack, and that means Parker should get plenty of opportunities.

Nelson Agholor, WR, Eagles ($5,000)

Although Zach Ertz is Philadelphia’s best pass catcher, but Agholor has surprisingly among the team leaders in targets for Carson Wentz. His price hasn’t caught up with his value, and he’s been one of the more consistent plays on a team with a lot of options.
