The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars will face off in a rainy day Madden sim Wednesday at 2:00 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

I know, it’s a rain game. That means it’s hard to bet on Jameis Winston ($16,200) not giving the ball away. However, Jacksonville doesn’t have a secondary capable of locking down Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. I saw you roll with the punches and risk a few turnovers in this game. Winston’s upside is too high for you to not consider making that move.

Leonard Fournette ($13,200) will likely be the Jaguars’ most popular captain’s option. I’d lean away from this option though, as he’s up against the Buccaneers’ excellent defensive line. Tampa Bay’s secondary has enough holes to justify captaining D.J. Chark Jr. ($14,400). If Fournette doesn’t get going, Chark usually does in his place.

Flex Men

James O’Shaugnessy ($6,400) is one of the more underrated tight ends we’ve seen this sim season. He’s much cheaper than most of the higher rated tight ends but reaches double-digits in DKFP fairly often. He could receive a boost in value against a team as sturdy as Tampa Bay up front.

Doubling up on Tampa Bay wideouts might be a good idea given what Winston is capable of. Chris Godwin ($7,800) is a pricier option, but I think Breshad Perriman’s ($5,000) speed and price makes him a more enticing option.
