DraftKings will have yet another six-game slate of Madden simulations on Sunday. The Indianapolis Colts at Arizona Cardinals, New Orleans Saints at Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars at Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers at Cleveland Browns, Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Charger, Cincinnati Bengals ant Philadelphia Eagles all go heads up today. We break down the top plays at each position, and you can set your lineup here.
C.J. Wentz, Eagles ($7,800) vs. Bengals
The Bengals defense is awful in Madden and Wentz has averaged 20.3 DK points per game at home in these simulations. In 10 games he’s thrown 23 touchdowns and no interceptions while also rushing for a touchdown.
Andy Dalton, Bengals ($5,600) at Eagles
Andy Dalton hasn’t been very good in these simulations, which coincides with his play in real life. The good news is, the Eagles pass defense regularly gives up good DK points to quarterbacks. And, finding low rostered players is a useful strategy in these Madden simulations.
Tevin Coleman, 49ers ($5,700) at Browns
Coleman has 10 touchdowns in 10 road games and has five touchdowns in his last three matchups. The Browns have a weak run defense and Coleman has been one of the best running backs in these simulations despite not being the best running back on his team.
Alvin Kamara, Saints ($6,600) at Dolphins
Kamara has good upside for tournaments in this matchup with the Dolphins. He hasn’t been as consistent as Coleman, but has topped 20 DK points in five of his last 12 and hit double digit DK points in over half of his games.
Mike Williams, Chargers ($4,500) vs. Chiefs
The Chiefs pass defense isn’t good in Madden and Williams is one of the highest upside plays every time he plays. He hasn’t fallen below 14 DK points in his last four games. Weirdly, he has 13 touchdowns in 10 road games and two touchdowns in nine home games, so that isn’t great. But, he still has 14.2, 22.9 and 19.2 DK points in his last three home games, so I’m not too worried.
D.J. Chark, Jaguars ($5,200) at Packers
Baby Chark is an unstoppable force in Madden, as he has 19 touchdowns in 20 games, with seven in his last five. The Packers pass defense is good in Madden, but you can’t stop the Chark.
Davante Adams, Packers ($7,500) vs. Jaguars
Adams has a few down games of late, which might drop his roster percentage enough to help in tournaments. As the main target for Aaron Rodgers, he has a lot of upside and with some decent value plays, we shouldn’t have trouble rostering him at his high price.
Zach Ertz, Eagles ($5,500) vs. Bengals
Travis Kelce, George Kittle, Jared Cook, Eric Ebron, David Njoku and James O’Shaughnessy are all strong plays on this slate, so I’m not too concerned about roster percentages. Instead, I’ll lean on Ertz, who has tournament winning upside, and pair him with Wentz.
New Orleans Saints ($3,200) at Dolphins
The Saints don’t have a very good D/ST in Madden, but their matchup with Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has thrown four interceptions in his last two games, is strong. Even Madden Fitzmagic has trouble reading defenses.
