The Buffalo Bills and New York Jets will face off in a simulated Madden 20 game Wednesday, and DraftKings will have DFS contests available for the matchup. We broke down the ideal showdown lineup strategy for the contest, which you can play at DraftKings.

Captain’s Picks

Le’Veon Bell, RB, Jets ($14,400)

Bell is New York’s highest rated offensive player and should be an asset as a rusher and receiver out of the backfield. His 95 agility ranks within the top five among running backs, allowing him to change directions effortlessly and create running lanes. That paired with his above average speed (89) and acceleration (92) make him a constant scoring threat. Even if he doesn’t reach the end zone, his ability to rack up yardage makes him the Jets’ best option.

Josh Allen, QB, Bills ($15,600)

Allen’s has the highest throwing power (99) rating in the game and is one of the best running signal callers in the league. He’s not the fastest, but his strength and stamina allow him to break tackles. New York’s underwhelming secondary doesn’t have a cornerback with a rating of 80 or above, so Johns Brown and Cole Beasley have a good chance get open and be productive.

Flex Men

Robby Anderson, WR, Jets ($8,800)

Anderson is one of the fastest receivers in the game and has better hands than every player faster than him but Tyreek Hill, who also sports a 91 catching rating. Few players are more dangerous deep threats than Anderson, and it only takes a few plays for him to accrue chunk yardage and scores through the air.

Frank Gore, RB, Bills ($3,000)

Gore’s 80 rating is on par with Devin Singletary’s ($9,200). Both should be involved in the run game, but you can’t ignore Gore’s bargain price. He’ll get an opportunity to score in short yardage situations, and his ball security (95) is elite. He’s a safe option that could pan out with a little luck.
