The New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face off in a Madden sim Monday at 12:00 p.m. ET. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the DFS contest. You can set your lineup and play at DraftKings before kickoff.

Captain’s Picks

Jameis Winston ($16,200) should have a decent shot at lighting the Jets’ defense up with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and O.J. Howard. Only Evans and and Howard have posted above average numbers, but Godwin has some of the most capable hands in Madden. Winston or one of his receivers are almost always the best captain’s options for the Buccaneers, as they have a weak running game.

Sam Darnold ($15,600) might actually be worth captaining in this game. Tampa Bay’s dynamite defensive line talent is offset by its poor secondary. Le’Veon Bell isn’t desirable in this matchup, but players like Jamison Crowder and Robby Anderson could be more productive than usual.

Flex Men

Breshad Perriman ($3,200) can take the top off the defense with his 95 speed. The wideout is cheap and might be Tampa Bay’s best wideout when it comes to stretching the field. He’s proven to be helpful in the red zone as well and has big play potential if he’s involved early.

This isn’t the best game for running backs, but Dare Ogunbowale ($1,200) is a bargain option worth considering. The Buccaneers’ starters randomly have decent games from time to time, but this RB3 is consistently contributing through PPR.
