The New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks will face off in a Thursday Madden sim at 12:00 p.m. ET. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the DFS contests centered around the game. You can set your lineup and play at DraftKings.

Captain’s Picks

Russell Wilson ($17,700) can do it all. He’s the most accurate quarterback in the game when it comes to throwing the long ball and is one of the better mobile signal callers. He spreads the ball around to Will Dissly, Tyler Lockett, and D.K. Metcalf and can definitely be worth baying the big bucks for.

Robby Anderson ($13,800) might be pricey, but you might want to consider picking him over Le’Veon Bell. Bobby Wagner is a monster inside for Seattle and can stifle the ground game like few others. Anderson’s 95 speed can be a factor against the Seahawks’ secondary. Sam Darnold shouldn’t be an option with a Russell Wilson in the mix.

Flex Men

Lockett ($10,000) hasn’t performed like a true WR1, so paying for a cheaper option like D.K. Metcalf ($7,600) is ideal. He has more size, is faster, and possesses more big play potential. Dissly ($6,800) and Ryan Griffin ($6,200) both average double-digits in DKFP. Griffin is the more consistent option as his team’s leading pass catcher though.
