The Chicago Bears and Buffalo Bills will face off in a Madden simulation Sunday at 10 p.m. ET. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the DFS contest that will be played in the snow. You can set your lineup and play in the DraftKings contest before kickoff.

Captain’s Pick

Mitchell Trubisky, Bears ($16,200)

Only four players in this matchup average over 10 DK points, so we’re not looking at a lot of fantasy stats in this particular matchup. There also isn’t much upside for scoring, which has me looking at Trubisky. Both quarterbacks can run the ball well, which is probably their best way of putting up points. Trubisky had been a must-start earlier but has tapered off of late. He still has a good floor due to his legs with some upside games.

Flex options

Allen Robinson, Bears ($9,600)

Robinson had been riding the Trubisky high earlier in the simulation, but has been extremely inconsistent of late. He still has some upside and with this group, there isn’t much of that. He also had a big game in Buffalo the last time they played, but that was back in the glory days.

Chicago Bears D/ST

The Bears defense outs up much better numbers at home. They have 10 interceptions and 40 sacks in 18 home games compared to six interceptions and 29 sacks on the road. If they can keep Josh Allen from running all over them, the Bills will have little chance to score.

Devin Singletary, Bills ($8,400)

Singletary loses a lot of work to Allen, but can break out once in a while. The last time hew faced the Bears, he scored a touchdown and caught four passes. With the Bears strong pass rush, dump offs to Singletary might give him a good floor to work with.
