The Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs will face off in a simulated Madden 20 game Wednesday in the snow, and DraftKings will have DFS contests available for the matchup. We break down the ideal showdown lineup strategy for the contest, which you can play at DraftKings.

Captain’s Pick

Demarcus Robinson, Chiefs ($6,300)

Robinson is too cheap for his upside. He’s had 34.6, 25.5 and 34.8 DK points games over his last nine and has hit double-digits in seven of his last nine. The Ravens defense is also worse in the simulation than it is in real life. They’ve had just 19 sacks and eight turnovers in 16 road games. I expect Patrick Mahomes to play well, even in the snow.

Flex Men

Lamar Jackson, Ravens ($10,600)

This game suits Jackson, as the Chiefs are weak at linebacker and against the run. Jackson should be able to run with ease and he has had little trouble putting up fantasy points with his legs in the simulation. He’s averaging 22.7 DK points on the road and has topped 25 DK points in three of his last four games.

Damien Williams, Chiefs ($8,200)

Williams has 18 more receptions at home than on the road and has shown good upside throughout the simulation. His floor is lower than I’d like, but I like that he has a higher floor at home due to his upped receiving production.

Marquise Brown, Ravens ($7,400)

Brown has been much better on the road, averaging 13.9 DK points to 9.5 at home. In 16 road games, he has averaged four receptions for 56.6 yards and has totaled 11 touchdowns compared to six at home on one more game.
