The Jacksonville Jaguars and Cincinnati Bengals will face off in a Sunday Madden sim at 2:00 p.m. ET. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the DFS contests centered around the game. You can set your lineup and play at DraftKings.

Captain’s Picks

Team are typically able to air the ball out against Cincinnati, so Gardner Minshew ($15,000) could be a quality option worth considering. D.J. Chark Jr. has been more consistent than either of the Bengals’ top targets, and James O’Shaugnessy and Leonard Fournette make significant contributions in the passing game as well.

Jacksonville doesn’t have a great secondary either, but I’d suggest going with an affordable option like Tyler Body ($11,700) over Andy Dalton. Both sides could put up big numbers, so getting as many of the better skill players in the flex as you can is ideal for maximizing your lineup’

Flex Men

Joe Mixon has continued to be a dud in Cincinnati’s backfield, but Giovanni Bernard ($3,200) has been able to show life by providing support as a quality PPR option for cheap. When Tyler Eifert ($7,000) is on, he can score multiple touchdowns in a game. Although he left the Bengals to join Jacksonville in real life, the Bengals still have his talent at their disposal in sim world.
