Top NFL Targets at each position for 6-game slate on June 14th

Ezekiel Elliott has been one of the most consistent forces we’ve seen in Madden sims. We think he can keep rolling in Sunday’s six-game slate.

DraftKings will have yet another six-game slate of Madden simulations on Sunday. The Las Vegas Raiders at Washington, Tennessee Titans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Arizona Cardinals at Los Angelses Rams, New York Jets at Philadelphia Eagles, Newy York Giants at Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars all go heads up today. We break down the top plays at each position, and you can set your lineup here.

Quarterback

Gardner Minshew, Jaguars ($5,400) vs. Cowboys

Minshew has been a high-upside play with consistency in most of these simulations. He’s had some interception trouble, but that doesn’t hurt much at just -1 point per interception. They should give him more rushing attempts, but they don’t, so his upside isn’t as high as some, but he’s cheap and consistent.

Jared Goff, Rams ($6,200) vs. Cardinals

Goff has done much better at home than away, averaging 19.5 DK points at home vs. 16.5 on the road. The Cardinals have a weak pass defense overall and Goff has good upside with a host of nice receivers.

Running back

Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys ($7,200) at Jaguars

Elliott has put up some big games of late, with five games over 22 DK points in his last nine matchups. I’d rather pay up at running back due to the position’s overall weakness than at wide receiver if given the choice.

Leonard Fournette, Jaguars ($5,800) vs. Cowboys

Much like Elliott, Fournette gets work as a rusher and receiver which comes with a strong floor. His upside hasn’t been as high as Elliott, but his consistency is worth it as we look for more volatile upside plays at wide receiver.

Wide Receiver

Robert Woods, Rams ($5,200) vs. Cardinals
Cooper Kupp, Rams ($6,800) vs. Cardinals

Brandin Cooks is a good play as well, but I’m going with Kupp for differential and his better home/road splits. Kupp has shown some upside of late as well, but has been extremely inconsistent. With that inconsistency and high price, I hope he isn’t highly rostered.

D.J. Chark, Jaguars ($5,900) vs. Cowboys

If I’m playing Minshew, Chark is a for sure play today. He has great upside and as Chark goes, so goes Minshew. When you scroll through Chark’s simulation game log, you’ll be hard pressed to not start him, but I might lean away to separate from the field if I’m not playing Minshew.

Davante Adams, Packers ($7,800) vs. Giants

Adams will likely be rostered by a big chunk of players and for good reason. He gets a great matchup with the Giants poor secondary and a home game, where he has 11 touchdowns in 12 games.

Tight End

Tyler Higbee, Rams ($4,800) vs. Cardinals

Going with the Rams theme, Higbee is another good upside but inconsistent target. I could see going with Kupp and Higbee for some real differential today.

Defense/Special Teams

New York Jets ($2,300) at Eagles

The Jets have averaged 8 DK points per game on the road with five interceptions, 13 fumble recoveries, 21 sacks and one defensive touchdown in 11 games. Their price is cheap and their consistency has been good.
