Tuesday’s six-game slate of Madden sims on DraftKings is set. There will be an all-day classic slate available starting at noon ET, and we break down some studs and value plays at each position below. You can enter your lineups here.
Baker Mayfield, Browns ($6,100) vs. Washington
Mayfield is leading one of the top receiving corps in Madden against an underwhelming Washington defense. Look for him to throw plenty of jump balls to Odell Beckham Jr. while also making use of Jarvis Landry.
Murray’s matchup with the Los Angeles’ secondary isn’t promising, but he provides significant upside as a rusher than can give him decent upside as a rusher if his passing doesn’t get off the ground. He doesn’t have a ton of rushing scores, but he is approaching 1,000 yards on the ground.
Freeman had a dud game against the Titans, but still has one of the higher ceilings in the slate. He’s up against a poor defense and leads all running backs in receptions (79). The likelihood of two straight single-digit performances are slim.
Buffalo is a run-first team that mostly depends on Josh Allen, but Singletary is the Bills’ second most productive offensive player. He averages 10 DKFP per contest, which is more than both the starters immediately below him combined.
Odell Beckham Jr., Browns ($7,200) vs. Washington
Beckham might be on the down stroke, but he’s still scored more touchdowns than every other player in the slate. Stacking him with Mayfield isn’t very expensive, and could very well earn you more than 40 DKFP. Washington is toward the bottom in terms of defensive production.
Calvin Ridley, Falcons ($4,500) vs. Bengals
Pricing has finally caught up to Mike Williams ($6,700) so Ridley has moved into the spotlight. He’s scored more touchdowns (12) than Julio Jones and will should also benefit from mismatches caused by Cincinnati’s inadequate pass defense.
George Kittle, 49ers ($6,700) vs. Cowboys
Kittle is too good all around to not be the stud pick at tight end. He leads all players at his position in receptions and receiving yards and is the top target in his offense. He’s essentially a WR1 at a discounted price.
Jordan Reed, Washington ($5,200) vs. Browns
Reed is the only tight end with more touchdowns (10) than Kittle. No player on Washington’s team has a better catching rating, so it’s safe to say he’ll continue to be very involved in the offense.
Packers ($2,900) vs. Bills
Buffalo gets limited production from its wide receivers and is a lower scoring team. Green Bay has the highest scoring defense in the slate and ranks toward the top in interceptions (11) and sacks (53). Allen doesn’t have very good accuracy, so the Packers could pick off some errant throws.
49ers ($2,100) vs. Cowboys
Dallas’ receiving corps hasn’t done well and San Francisco has one of the better secondaries in Madden alongside a fearsome offensive line. Paying this much for one of the most well-rounded defenses in the slate is a steal.
