The Washington Redskins and Jacksonville Jaguars will face off in a Madden sim Monday. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the matchup’s DFS contest. You can set your lineup and play at DraftKings.
Leonard Fournette, Jaguars, RB ($14,100)
Fournette is arguably the most consistent running back we’ve seen. He’s been piling up double-digit fantasy point outings and has remained a staple for his team’s offense in every simulation he’s been a part of. He hasn’t exploded for a ridiculous performance yet, but he can give you a sturdy placeholder in the captain’s spot.
Dwayne Haskins, Washington, QB ($16,200)
Haskins is Washington’s most productive player. He’s the best option because he spreads the ball to a plethora of targets. He’s occasionally outdone by a wide receiver, but Jacksonville doesn’t have the kind of defensive backs that can shut him out. The Jaguars’ defensive line could be a factor that affects Haskins’ success though.
Josh Lambo, Jaguars, K ($3,800)
Lambo is Jacksonville’s third highest rated player. His kicking power (96) and kicking accuracy (95) is elite. If you want to take the road less traveled, take a chance on Lambo. If he gets chances he’ll make them. Maybe he’ll bang a few through the uprights from distance.
Jordan Reed, Washington, TE ($7,800)
Reed is Washington’s highest rated pass catcher but is less expensive than Terry McLaurin. If you can get a top target at this price, you should go for it. Previously existing injuries aren’t a factor and Reed has consistently finished with double-digit fantasy points.
