Madden Stream Results

Jaguars stomp Broncos 26-7 in Madden simulation — 4/1/20

Gardner Minshew ($10,200; 17.88 DKFP) and D.J. Chark ($9,200; 17.7 DKFP) led the way for Jacksonville, which dominated this one from start to finish. The Jags only allowed one score to Denver, as defenses have continued to be some of the top plays on these Madden simulation slates — Jaguars D/ST ($4,600; 11 DKFP) was one of the top values on the slate. James O’Shaughnessy ($7,800; 13.5 DKFP) was an unlikely hero, while Leonard Fournette ($9,600; 17.1 DKFP) shredded a Denver defense that was gashed on the ground during the regular season.


Raiders comeback bid against the Broncos falls short — 4/4/20

In one of the higher scoring Madden sims we have seen, the Broncos topped the Raiders by a final score of 21-14. Oakland had a chance to comeback and ended up getting stopped inside the 5-yard line on the final drive of the game. In a comeback effort, the Raiders’ passing game put up strong numbers. Derek Carr ($10,000; 18.72 DKFP) threw for 293 yards and his primary target was Tyrell Williams ($9,600). He finished with over 100 yards and 21.9 DKFP. The top scorer in the game was Darren Waller ($8,200; 23.1 DKFP) as he caught a pair of touchdowns. For Denver, Drew Lock ($9,200; 19.56 DKFP) had three touchdown passes in the win.


Mitchell Trubisky leads late rally to keep Bears undefeated in Madden Streams — 4/10/20

After a slow offensive start for both teams, the Bears scored two touchdowns late to edge the Broncos, 14-13, on Friday afternoon’s Madden Stream and improve to 3-0 in their simulations. Trubisky ($10,000 in single-game Showdown; 23.24 DKFP) stepped up on the final drive, running for big chunks of yards before completing the game-winning touchdown to Allen Robinson ($11,000; 17.9 DKFP). Trubisky was the winning option at Captain’s Pick with 211 passing yards, 78 rushing yards and two passing touchdowns. The Bears got another touchdown from Tarik Cohen ($3,400; 12 DKFP), as the Human Joystick proved to be a great value option again. Courtland Sutton ($10,400; 13.1 DKFP) had the Broncos lone touchdown as they fell to 1-2.


Broncos late rally grounds Jets in snow in Madden Stream — 4/18/20

In the first Madden Stream with snow, the Broncos scored three straight touchdowns after trailing 17-3 to beat the Jets, 23-17, in double overtime. The first two touchdowns that tied the game were caught by Courtland Sutton ($9,200; 32.9 DKFP), who finished with over 100 yards as he continued to be a contributor in every contest. The game-winner in overtime was hauled in my DaeSean Hamilton ($5,800; 21.7 DKFP), who had his best Madden performance to date while serving as a great option out of the slot. Those three touchdown throws also made Drew Lock ($9,800; 27.04) a great play as he helped his Broncos to improve to 2-2, which is the same record the Jets have after their loss.


Broncos DST dominates Redskins in Madden sim — 4/22/20

Washington didn’t even find the end zone in the 27-6 loss, getting close to no production on offense. Terry McLaurin ($9,200; 19.2 DKFP) was the only notable performer, going just over 100 yards on his six receptions. The Broncos’ DST ($5,000; 23 DKFP) dominated the contest, racking up eight sacks and scoring a touchdown on a defensive return. The DST play was actually in the captain spot for the winning lineup, where it earned 34.5 DKFP at 3.1% ownership. Phillip Lindsay ($8,800; 15 DKFP) rushed for just 30 yards, but did score both of Denver’s offensive touchdowns. Noah Fant ($7,000; 14.3 DKFP) was the most effective weapon in the passing game, going for 83 yards on six receptions.


Courtland Sutton crushes Browns in Madden simulation Saturday afternoon — 4/25/20

The Broncos went into the Dawg Pound and beat the Browns, 28-21, behind a massive game from Sutton ($9,200; 38.9 DKFP), who only had four catches but took three of them to the house on his way to 139 yards. FS Justin Simmons also had a big game for the Broncos DST ($3,800; 8.0 DKFP) picking off Baker Mayfield ($11,000; 19.32 DKFP) three times, all of deflections. Mayfield had a solid game other than that, throwing for 258 yards and three touchdowns. One was to Demetrius Harris ($1,400; 7.1 DKFP), who was a great value play and allowed the winning lineup to pay up for TEs David Njoku ($7,200; 13.5 DKFP) and Noah Fant ($6,600; 12.5 DKFP), who had strong games.


Jacoby Brissett torches Broncos in simulated victory for Colts — 4/27/20

The Colts topped the Broncos in a 38-30 barnburner, as Jacoby Brissett ($10,800; 39.36 DKFP) stole the show. Brissett tossed five touchdowns, also hitting the 300-yard bonus with 344 passing yards. Brissett was just 2.9% owned as a captain, and scored over 59 DKFP for the winning lineup. A pair of those scores went to T.Y. Hilton ($10,200; 25.9 DKFP), who finished with a 7-69-2 line, but it was Chester Rogers ($2,000; 26 DKFP) that hijacked another Madden sim. Rogers already went off for a multi-score game, but this time posted a 4-118-1 line. Tim Patrick ($3,600;19.6 DKFP) was a solid WR value on the other side, but Phillip Lindsay ($8,200; 31.3 DKFP) finally went off in a sim. Lindsay rushed for 61 yards and two TDs, catching five passes for another 22 yards and a TD.


Broncos kick their way past Steelers in Madden simulation — 4/29/20

Despite finding the end zone just once, the Broncos managed a 22-17 victory over the Steelers. That made Brandon McManus ($3,600; 18 DKFP) the game’s top value, knocking in five field goals and an extra-point. Phillip Lindsay ($9,200; 26 DKFP) was dominant on the ground for a second consecutive sim, rushing for 127 yards and Denver’s lone touchdown — good for 39 DKFP in the Captain spot of the winning lineup. There was some good value to be had from the Steelers’ WRs as well, with James Washington ($5,600; 14.8 DKFP) and Diontae Johnson ($3,400; 16.1 DKFP) each hauling in a score.


Buccaneers’ defense unable to stop Drew Lock and the Broncos — 5/2/20

On paper, this looked like a game the Bucs would win. They have been one of the performing teams in the Madden simulations and were up against a mediocre Broncos’ team. The game didn’t go according to script as Lock ($10,000; 15.58 DKFP) was able to exploit Tampa Bay’s pass defense. He tossed touchdowns to Courtland Sutton ($9,800; 16.8 DKFP) and DaeShean Hamilton ($5,200; 16.7 DKFP) leading Denver to 31 points. Jameis Winston ($11,000; 14.88 DKFP) and the Bucs were unable to keep up although Breshad Perriman ($3,600; 19.9 DKFP) was the top performing fantasy player in the game.


Cardinals squeak past Broncos in Wednesday’s simulated matchup — 5/6/20

It was a close contest between the Cardinals and Broncos with the Cardinals pulling out the win, 14-13. Kyler Murray ($10,600, 16.76 DKFP) didn’t exactly have a monster performance, but he led the way with 194 passing yards and a passing touchdown to go along with 50 rushing yards. Damiere Byrd ($4,800, 17.4 DKFP) provided some cheap production with four catches for 74 yards and a touchdown. On the Denver side, Drew Lock ($10,200, 11.56 DKFP) had a fairly quiet afternoon with 189 passing yards and one passing touchdown.


Bills hold on against Broncos in Madden simulation– 5/8/20

You were certainly right to question the viability of Josh Allen ($10,800; 28.8 DKFP) coming into this slate. Not only had the former first-round pick managed a putrid 94.3 passing yards per game across his past three starts, but he was the most expensive player on either roster. Not exactly an enticing combination. However, it was clear early on in this one that we were dealing with a different version of Allen. The pivot ran in a pair of touchdowns and threw for another in Buffalo’s 28-23 victory over Denver. All told, it was just the second time in these simulations that’s Allen had exceeded even 15.0 DKFP. Any given sim day, right?


Over 700 yards passing in high-scoring Chiefs-Broncos simulation — 5/13/20

Both offenses had no difficulties airing it out during Tuesday night’s simulated game, in which the Broncos’ late comeback effort fell short and they lost 39-34 to the Chiefs. Broncos’ QB Drew Lock ($9,800; 36.08 DKFP) led all scorers with 427 yards and four TDs. With numbers like that, it’s no surprise that his top targets – Courtland Sutton ($9,000; 31.1 DKFP) and Noah Fant ($5,800; 26.1 DKFP) – also had great games. Both caught five passes, with Sutton snagging 111 yards and two TDs while Fant logged 121 yards and one TD. For the Chiefs, Tyreek Hill ($11,600; 33.3 DKFP) was the top DFS producer, scoring twice while compiling seven catches for 113 yards.


White Out! James White runs past Broncos in Patriots’ 31-10 win — 5/14/20

The Denver defense didn’t have any answer for White ($8,400; 36.5 DKFP), who ran wild against the Broncos piling up a sim-season-high 166 yards on the ground with a pair of touchdowns while adding three catches for 19 yards as well. The Patriots also got a big game from Ben Watson ($7,800; 21.3 DKFP), who didn’t find the end zone but did get 113 yards on his seven catches. Tom Brady ($11,200; 18.6 DKFP) did throw the two non-White scores to Julian Edelman ($10,200; 17.6) and Mohamed Sanu ($7,000; 18.5 DKFP). The Broncos lone touchdown came early in the game on a catch by Tim Patrick ($3,400; 11.8 DKFP), who was a nice salary saver.


Broncos rally for 17-10 win in Cincinnati — 5/16/20

The Denver defense didn’t have any answer for White ($8,400; 36.5 DKFP), who ran wild against the Broncos piling up a sim-season-high 166 yards on the ground with a pair of touchdowns while adding three catches for 19 yards as well. The Patriots also got a big game from Ben Watson ($7,800; 21.3 DKFP), who didn’t find the end zone but did get 113 yards on his seven catches. Tom Brady ($11,200; 18.6 DKFP) did throw the two non-White scores to Julian Edelman ($10,200; 17.6) and Mohamed Sanu ($7,000; 18.5 DKFP). The Broncos lone touchdown came early in the game on a catch by Tim Patrick ($3,400; 11.8 DKFP), who was a nice salary saver.


Phillip Lindsay and the Broncos stomp Lions in Madden sim — 5/18/20

Lindsay ($9,200; 41.1 DKFP) dominated the 45-13 victory for Denver, rushing for 129 yards and three touchdowns, tacking on three receptions for another 42 yards. Lindsay was 6.3% owned as a captain, and the obvious piece you needed the 1.5X bonus from — 61.65 DKFP. Noah Fant ($6,200; 15 DKFP) caught three passes for 60 yards, including Denver’s only passing touchdown. Marvin Jones ($7,800; 13.6 DKFP) had the only touchdown for the Lions, who were barely able to move the ball.


Chargers beat Broncos 27-10 in Thursday’s sim — 5/21/20
In this Madden simulation, the Chargers beat up on Denver, beating them by three scores. Leading the way for Los Angeles was Travis Benjamin (CPT; $7,500), who caught five balls for 51 yards and two touchdowns. He went for 33.15 DKFP in the Captain’s slot. For Denver, Noah Fant ($5,800) was the bright spot on an otherwise quiet day. He went over 100 yards on just four catches, scoring 18.5 DKFP. The rest of the winning lineup featured Philip Rivers ($11,000), Courtland Sutton ($9,400), Melvin Gordon ($8,400), and Hunter Henry ($7,600). It was a two-way tie for first.


Tim saves the sim! Patrick catches game-winner for the Broncos — 5/24/20
It looked like the Packers were going to escape the Mile High City with a win after the rarely-used and little-owned FB Danny Vitale hauled in a score just after the two-minute warning. However, the Broncos marched down the field and got the game-winning touchdown with just under 10 seconds left from Tim Patrick ($4,400; 18.3 DKFP), who had only three catches for 33 yards but found the end zone twice. Drew Lock ($10,800; 14.62 DKFP) threw for just under 200 yards and those two scores. The big contributors for the Packers were Jimmy Graham ($7,600; 21.7 DKFP), who racked up 117 yards on his seven catches and Mason Crosby ($4,000; 10 DKFP).


49ers rally falls short as Broncos hold on for 20-13 win in the snow — 5/27/20
Wild weather Wednesday wrapped up with a surprising result as the 49ers, who have been the winningest team in these sims so far, couldn’t quite rally to tie their game against the Broncos in snowy Denver. The Broncos got a huge game from Phillip Linsday ($8,800; 27.4 DKFP) who ran for 109 yards and a touchdown while adding four catches for 35 more yards. Courtland Sutton ($9,200; 10.8 DKFP) had Denver’s other touchdown, and K Brandon McManus ($3,800; 8.0 DKFP) was a key value play. While trying to rally his team, Jimmy Garoppolo ($10,800; 14.96 DKFP) had a solid game, focusing primarily on Deebo Samuel ($7,000; 15.7 DKFP) and Kendrick Bourne ($4,800; 14.3 DKFP).


Ravens take down Broncos in Madden simulation — 5/29/20
It’s rare we get a simulation where both Lamar Jackson ($11,400; 24.5 DKFP) and Mark Ingram ($9,200; 21.1 DKFP) thrive; but that’s exactly what went down on Friday evening. Baltimore made easy work of Denver, running away with a 27-10 victory. I don’t use the term “running away” lightly, either. Both Jackson and Ingram managed to hit the 100-yard rushing bonus in the win, with both also finding their way into the end zone. For the Broncos, what little offense they could muster came in the form of Courtland Sutton ($10,000; 26.2 DKFP), who registered a game-high seven receptions for 102 yards and a score of his own.



Rams make easy work of Broncos in Madden simulation– 5/31/20

Todd Gurley ($8,800; 20.3 DKFP) had been on quite the run coming into tonight’s simulation against Denver, having averaged 17.2 DKFP across his past six games. Fortunately, for Gurley’s many owners, that stretch of success did not come to a halt in Los Angeles’ 27-14 victory. The Georgia product racked up 113 scrimmage yards and a touchdown in the winning effort, with the trip to the end zone being Gurley’s fourth in his past three starts. Robert Woods ($7,800; 17.1 DKFP) also proved to be a highly effective DFS asset in this one, hauling in a lengthy second quarter touchdown and finishing with three receptions for 81 yards.
