The Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots will play in one of the last Madden sims of the week on Sunday. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the DFS contest centered around the game. You can set your lineup and play at DraftKings.

Captain’s Picks

Tom Brady, Patriots, QB ($16,500)

Brady doesn’t need elite weapons to pick apart a defense, and he’s proved that by posting some monster stat lines so far. He has an abundance of superstar traits and accuracy, which has helped him make the most of players like Phillip Dorsett and Ben Watson.

Russell Wilson, Seahawks, QB ($17,400)

Wilson isn’t having the best Madden sim career. His starting running back and starting receivers have been producing at a below average level. Luckily for Wilson, his mobility gives him an opportunity to take things into his own hands.His deadly long ball accuracy can help him rack up points in chunk plays, and he’ll be able to gobble up rushing yards as well.

Flex Men

Phillip Dorsett, Patriots, WR ($3,800)

Dorsett’s 95 speed has helped him come up big in more than one game, but he was a dud in his last simulation. The chances of him dipping below 2 DKFP for a second straight game are low. Even if he doesn’t show up, rostering him doesn’t break the bank.

Will Dissly, Seahawks, TE ($7,600)

Dissly isn’t a tight end with a household name, but he’s surprisingly averaging double-digits in DKFP. He’s outperformed Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf on more than one occasion for cheap. He’s one of the better value options in the contest.
