Falcons win a shootout over Texans in Madden simulation
We finally got the QB duel we've been waiting for in these Madden simulations. Matt Ryan ($9,400; 23.6 DKFP) and Deshaun Watson ($9,600; 21.3 DKFP) were phenomenal all evening long in Atlanta's eventual 24-17 victory over Houston. In fact, it was almost unsettling when either would simply throw an incomplete pass. Ryan, in particular, finished with just one such mistake in the winning effort, racking up 290 yards through the air with three passing touchdowns. As for Watson, the Clemson product rushed for 42 yards on top of his pair of aerial TDs. DeAndre Hopkins ($10,400; 18.7 DKFP) was also effective, registering six catches for 67 yards and a score.Read More »
Bears edge Lions in Madden simulation
Despite being listed as the RB2 on Chicago's depth chart, it was Tarik Cohen ($4,600; 26.1 DKFP) - not David Montgomery ($7,000; 3.1 DKFP) - who went off in this afternoon's Madden simulation. In fact, the diminutive back scored the game-winning touchdown in the Bears' 23-17 OT victory over Detroit. Maybe it was a mistake by the AI or maybe the CPU was aware of Chicago's recent struggles kicking clutch field goals, but the Bears chose to hand it off to Cohen at the seven-yard line instead of attempting a short field goal. Either way, it turned out to be the correct decision. Cohen finished with 91 scrimmage yards and five catches, while T.J. Hockenson ($6,600; 17.7 DKFP) led the way for the Lions with six catches, 57 yards and his own TD.Read More »

However, the Bucs wasted no time in OT, as Jameis Winston ($10,000;16.58 DKFP) hit Mike Evans ($10,600; 24.1 DKFP) for a deep bomb to win the game, 16-10. Evans topped 100 yards on the play, which was his fifth catch of the game. Evans was the key ingredient in the Captain's spot for the winning lineup, scoring 36.15 DKFP. Chris Godwin ($8,400; 15.2 DKFP) also had a solid game, bringing in a touchdown earlier in the game. The Giants' offense was quiet, led by Evan Engram's ($7,800; 11.8 DKFP) five receptions for 68 yards.Read More »
