The Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets will face off in a simulated Madden 20 game Tuesday, and DraftKings will have DFS contests available for the matchup. We break down the ideal showdown lineup strategy for the contest, which you can play at DraftKings.

Captain’s Picks

Neither of these teams have great pass defense, and that makes the versatile Kyler Murray ($17,400) the most dangerous quarterback threat. He’s able to make Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald threats out wide while also utilizing Kenyan Drake and David Johnson. His escape artist ability raises his ceiling.

Le’Veon Bell ($13,800) has nearly 2,000 rushing yards and 64 receptions this sim season. He’s reached the end zone 13 times, which is more than any other player on his team. The receiving corps lacks consistency, but Bell has one of the higher floors among New York players.

Flex Men

Ryan Griffin ($8,400) surprisingly leads all Jets with 124 receptions and has scored nine touchdowns. The tight end has notched at leas six receptions and 10 DKFP in five of his last six games. He might not have the big play potential of Robby Anderson ($10,000), but he gives you flexibility. Speedy slot receiver Damiere Bird ($4,400) is a deep ball threat that’s come up big from time to time. He’s the fastest player Arizona has to offer on offense and is cheap.
