Jared Goff and Cooper Kupp could by a dynamic duo worth stacking in Tuesday’s Colts-Rams Madden simulation.

The Indianapolis Colts and Los Angeles Rams will face off in Tuesday’s second Madden simulation. DraftKings will have a DFS contest for the matchup, and we break down the ideal showdown lineup strategy below. You can sign up to play here.

Captain’s Picks

Jared Goff, QB, Rams ($15,000)

Goff has weapons everywhere and Indianapolis only has one defensive back with an overall rating above 80. Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Tyler Higbee, and Todd Gurley will all be hard for the Colts to contain. I like the chances of Goff spreading the ball around and making plays all over the field.

Cooper Kupp, WR, Rams ($13,800)

T.Y. Hilton will me matched up against Jalen Ramsey. That makes Kupp the best wide receiver play in this matchup. The Colts’ best cornerback has an 80 overall rating. Only five wideouts have a better catch rating (95) than Kupp, so I like this matchup despite his high price.

Flex Men

Eric Ebron, TE, Colts ($7,200)

Ebron is only second to Hilton in the passing game. Jacoby Brissett’s short throws are better than his intermediate and deep throws, so that could make Ebron more likely to be connected with.

Nyheim Hines, RB, Colts ($3,200)

Hines wasn’t very productive in real life this past season, but he’s been one of the more interesting value plays in the simulations we’ve seen so far. Marlon Mack will likely get more touches, but Hines’ speed (93) gives him plenty of big play potential. RB2s have been serious wild card so far.
