The Green Bay Packers vs Seattle Seahawks will face off in a simulated Madden 20 game Wednesday in the snow, 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 Pick

Russell Wilson, Seahawks ($19,500)

I usually prefer to go with a high-upside value play in the Captain’s slot, but I prefer Wilson here. His consistency and upside are some of the best of the simulation and Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams have been poor on the road. I’ll look to get a big chunk from Wilson and then go with value the rest of the way.

Flex Men

Josh Gordon, Seahawks ($4,800)

Gordon hasn’t shown a a high ceiling, but does have 11 or more DK points in five of his last six games. At his price, I’ll take a double-digit performance.

DK Metcalf, Seahawks ($7,600)

Metcalf remains a boom or bust player, but his price keeps him viable. There’s not much difference between him and Tyler Lockett, who costs $2,400 more.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Packers ($5,800)

Valdes-Scantling is much worse on the road than at home, but has shown enough to make it tough to pass on him at his price. He’s topped 11 DK points in his last three road games and just put up 20.2 against the 49ers tough defense at home.

Will Dissly, Seahawks ($8,200)

Dissly is a lot like Metcalf and Lockett in his lack of consistency and good upside. He has hit double-digit DK points in 10 of his last 14 games and 20 and 15 DK points in his last two, so he appears slightly more consistent than the other main receivers for Wilson.
