Top NFL Targets at each position for 6-game slate on June 3rd

Mitchell Trubisky is cheap, but also happens to be the most productive quarterback in Wednesday’s six-game Madden slate.

There will be another six-game slate of simulated Madden games on Wednesday. DraftKings will have a classic contests going, and we break down ideal picks for the all-day slate below. You can set your lineup here.

Quarterback

Mitchell Trubisky, Bears ($5,700) vs. Jets

Trubisky is still running it up against all sorts of defenses thanks to his mobility. He rarely throws interceptions and has accounted for 35 total touchdowns. He’s cheap and averages more DKFP (21.5) than every other quarterback in the slate.

Russell Wilson, Seahawks ($7,900) vs. Colts

Wilson has numbers that almost identical to Trubisky’s. He’s the priciest signal caller, but will be up against one of the worst secondaries in the slate. His receiving corps isn’t great by Madden sim standards, but Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf could both have big games.

Running back

James White, Patriots ($5,800) vs. Vikings

Minnesota has a strong run defense, but White has 57 receptions and can make an impact through the air as well. He’s eclipsed 10 DKFP in eight of his last 10 sims and remains one of the cheaper options among starters.

Todd Gurley II, Rams ($6,200) vs. Raiders

Gurley has the highest DKFP average (16) and will be up against a weak defensive line and linebacker group. The Raiders have given up at least 30 points in more than 13 of their games. If the Rams get ahead because of their dynamic passing attack early, Gurley could have a heavy workload down the stretch.

Wide receiver

Odell Beckham Jr., Browns ($7,200) vs. Steelers

Beckham is clearly the best wideout target in the slate and is barely more expensive than Allen Robinson ($7,000). He has the highest DKFP average (18.9) and the ability to haul in contested catches against any defense. He also has the skills to make would-be tacklers miss in the open field.

Adam Thielen, Vikings ($6,000) vs. Patriots

Thielen is far more productive than Stefon Diggs, who is the most expensive wideout in the slate. He should benefit from not having to match up with the Patriots’ Stephon Gilmore and excels in the slot, which often results in open looks.

T.Y. Hilton, Colts ($6,800) vs. Seahawks

Hilton is one of the most elusive wideouts in Madden. Only Beckham has scored more touchdowns in this slate, and Seattle only has Shaquill Griffin to offer against him in pass coverage. Hilton’s route running and ability to get yards after the catch should make him a top target.

D.K. Metcalf, Seahawks ($4,300) vs. Colts

Metcalf is one of the better value options at wide receiver. His 95 speed and 94 jumping makes him a dangerous deep threat against weak secondaries. Tyler Lockett will get the tougher matchup, so a Wilson-Metcalf stack could be ideal.

Tight End

Darren Waller, Raiders ($5,100) vs. Rams

Los Angeles has an impressive secondary, but Waller is the Raiders’ best pass catcher. He can run the ball, line up as a tradition tight end, or be split out wide. His versatility and speed should allow him to be a factor underneath.

Ben Watson, Patriots ($4,200) vs. Vikings

Watson has a ridiculous total of 118 receptions and is target more than any other tight end. That gives him a high floor. While he hasn’t scored as many touchdowns as other options, he’s a quality value play with high upside.

Vance McDonald, Steelers ($4,000) vs. Browns

McDonald is another value option to consider. He averages double-digits in fantasy points and occasionally has monster breakout games. Only Darren Waller has scored more touchdowns than his eight this sim season.

Defense/Special Teams

Vikings D/ST ($2,600) vs. Patriots

Minnesota has a talented defensive line to get after Tom Brady and a secondary that could hold up against the Patriots’ receiving corps. The Vikings have recovered more fumbles (19) than any team in the slate and have major turnover potential.
