The Las Vegas Raiders and New York Giants will face off in a Friday Madden sim at 4:00 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

Both quarterbacks in this game can be serious threats. Daniel Jones ($14,400) doesn’t have the same skill level as Derek Carr ($16,800), but has an elite running back and a much better receiving corps. Carr has been able to make the most out of his weapons. Darren Waller has become one of the most productive fantasy tight ends we’ve seen, and Tyrell Williams is capable of having some monster games.

Flex Men

The Raiders’ secondary is much worse than the Giants’, so I’d bet on New York having the more productive receiving corps. Sterling Shephard ($3,800) is cheap and can provide value when paired with top pass catchers like Golden Tate ($8,600) and Waller ($8,200). Jalen Richard ($3,600) has a floor that’s comparable to Josh Jacobs’ and can help give you room to roster a must-have option like Saquon Barkley ($9,000).
