The Buffalo Bills and Houston Texans will face off in a Tuesday Madden sim at 4:00 p.m. ET. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the DFS contest. You can set your lineup and play at DraftKings before kickoff.

Captain’s Picks

Josh Allen ($15,900) is the engine that make’s Buffalo’s offense go. While the Texans do have a weak secondary, Allen’s scrambling ability is too hard to pass on. The Bills have gotten limited production from most of their wide receivers. Even if Allen does pass for more yards than usual, he probably won’t have a star receiver. It’s better to bet on him doing a little bit of everything.

Houston’s top option is a toss up between Deshaun Watson ($16,800) and DeAndre Hopkins ($15,000). Buffalo does have a well-rounded defense, but the Texans’ offense has a ton of big-play ability. Watson seems like the safer pick as a dual-threat quarterback who will get plenty of touches. He has much better targets to work with and speed even with Allen’s.

Flex Men

Devin Singletary ($7,800) isn’t the most explosive fantasy back around, but he is the top option in this game. He’s the only Bill that can compare to Allen when it comes to reaching double-digits in DKFP. The Texans have plenty of affordable receivers to fill in the flex like Will Fuller ($7,600) and Kenny Stills ($5,200). Both can stand out while playing in Hopkins’ shadow.
