The Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers will face off in a Madden sim Saturday at 10:00 p.m. ET. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the DFS contest. You can set your lineup and play in the DraftKings contest before kickoff.

Captain’s Picks

George Kittle ($14,400)

Kittle has the highest average fantasy points per game in this contest and you’re going to want to play him in your lineup. He’s been a bit lackluster the past three games, but the yardage doesn’t tell the whole story. He’s got a TD in four of the past five simulations. The Bills defense is tough against TEs, but Kittle is elite.

Deebo Samuel ($9,900)

If you’re not on Kittle, Samuel isn’t a bad option. He’s a bit cheaper in price, so we get some lineup flexibility. Plus, he’s coming off back-to-back games of over 100 yard receiving. The points are trending in the right direction for Samuel so get on board while you still can.

FLEX Men

Tevin Coleman ($8,400)

Coleman is the leader in the backfield for the 49ers despite things being very split during the regular season in real life. He’s got a TD in four straight simulations, including a 150 yard game against the stout Ravens defense. This price point is pretty low for a RB who seems like a No. 1 for a very good 49ers squad.

Tyler Kroft ($5,600)

I love tight ends in these contests (relax) and this is a spot I’d like to target Kroft in. The 49ers have a tough defense that will likely lock down a lot of the Bills receiving options. I think Kroft can thrive though and he’s produced pretty decently in these streams. Kroft’s got three straight games of at least double-digit fantasy points.
