Madden Stream Results49ers crush Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV simulation — 3/30/20
I doubt a computer simulation on a random day in March is all that comforting to mourning San Francisco fans, but the 49ers were able to get a little bit of vengeance on DraftKings this evening. San Francisco crushed Kansas City by a score of 30-7, shutting down the Chiefs’ high octane offense save for a garbage time touchdown catch by Travis Kelce ($9,800; 16.4 DKFP). Really, the winning formula ended up being pretty true to real life. The 49ers’ defense was amazing and the team leaned heavily on its rushing attack to score points. In particular, it was Tevin Coleman ($7,200) doing most of the damage, racking up 110 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in the blowout.
Rams edge the Chiefs in Madden shootout — 4/4/20
In a high-scoring game, the Rams came out on top of the Chiefs 31-24. Los Angeles was led by Jared Goff ($9,400) and the passing attack. He tallied a game-high 33.4 DKFP on 300 passing yards and four total touchdowns. Goff had three touchdowns through the air and ran one in himself. The top scoring skill position player was Todd Gurley ($8,000), who is no longer on the Rams in real life. He had a touchdown and over 100 total yards to finish with 20.5 DKFP. For the Chiefs, Tyreke Hill ($10,000) scored 21.3 DKFP in the loss.
Chiefs blowout Titans in Madden simulation — 4/10/20
It’s strange to even type out, but Patrick Mahomes ($11,200; 16.6 DKFP) had not yet played well in a simulation coming into Friday. In fact, the reigning Super Bowl MVP had tossed five interceptions in two games. Ugly stuff. However, in this evening’s 27-13 victory over Tennessee, Mahomes finally thrived and he did so with his two favorite targets helping to carry the load. Travis Kelce ($9,800; 27.5 DKFP) absolutely abused the Titans’ secondary all night long, racking up seven catches for 115 yards and a touchdown. Tyreek Hill ($10,200; 17.5 DKFP) also showed up in a big way, ripping off a 75-yard touchdown run in the dying seconds of the first half. To put it plainly: Kansas City’s offense was fantastic.
Lamar Jackson shines in simulated battle of AFC heavyweights — 4/14/20
Even in the virtual realm, Jackson ($11,200; 21.94 DKFP) just crushes defenses. On Tuesday DraftKings gave us the simulated version of the AFC championship game that everyone was hoping for last season, and the Ravens emerged victorious over the Chiefs, 20-17. Jackson scored through the air and he scored on the ground, racking up 101 passing yards and 89 rushing. For the Chiefs, though Travis Kelce ($9,200; 17.2 DKFP) led the team in yardage, Tyreek Hill ($10,600; 18.9 DKFP) was the superior DFS play thanks to his two receiving TDs.
Chiefs dominate Packers in Madden simulation — 4/20/20
In what amounted to a strangely low-scoring contest between two of Madden’s most prolific QBs, Kansas City took down Green Bay by a 23-7 margin on Monday evening. However, if the point total was somewhat surprising, the game’s best performer when exactly to script. As has been the case in nearly even Chiefs stream so far, Travis Kelce ($8,600; 25.3 DKFP) was basically an unstoppable force in the victory, hauling in six passes for 103 yards and a touchdown. The Pro Bowl tight end paired well with Patrick Mahomes ($11,600; 18.7 DKFP), who finished the tilt with 267 yards through the air and a pair of passing TDs.
Tom Brady tosses four more touchdowns in one-sided win over Chiefs — 4/25/20
The 31-17 final score doesn’t really show how easily the Patriots beat the Chiefs. New England got off to an early lead and never relented as Kansas City’s offense once again faltered in a simulated game, dropping their record to 2-4. Brady ($11,800) had another big game for the Pats. He had four touchdowns, 353 yards and 33.12 DKFP in the victory. His primary target was Phillip Dorsett ($4,600), who has been one the best fantasy producers at the wide receiver position. He scored a game-high 33.3 DKFP and needs to be considered a good play until his salary rises.
Chiefs rally to defeat Seahawks in Madden simulation — 4/27/20
It really seemed like this wasn’t going to be Patrick Mahomes’ ($11,600; 33.1 DKFP) game. At one point in the second-half of Monday’s simulation against Seattle, the Kansas City QB found himself down 15 points and without a touchdown. Well, as we know from the real-life Mahomes, those kinds of things can change quickly. The Chiefs ripped off 21 consecutive points to win this one in OT by a final tally of 27-21, with the former MVP leading the charge. Mahomes finished with an eye-popping 402 passing yards and three TDs, while Sammy Watkins ($7,200; 35.0 DKFP) collected 170 receiving yards and the game-winning score. What a way to wrap up DraftKings Player Appreciation Night.
Saints comeback to defeat Chiefs in Madden simulation — 4/30/20
Well, that was fun. Rarely have we seen two teams simultaneously exceed 30 points within the same simulation, but leave it to New Orleans and Kansas City to each light up the scoreboard. The Saints would eventually take this contest 34-33, yet there were huge fantasy performances on both sides. Michael Thomas ($10,600; 37.7 DKFP) was unstoppable, racking up 10 catches for 127 yards and two touchdowns. In fact, the All-Pro wideout now has eight TDs in his past five streams. Drew Brees ($11,400; 32.4 DKFP) was also great, throwing for 360 yards and four scores. As for the Chiefs, Tyreek Hill ($9,800) was the star, producing an eye-popping 151 yards on just five receptions.
Damien Williams three scores carry Chiefs to 35-21 win over the Eagles — 5/3/20
The Chiefs went into virtual Lincoln Financial Field and knocked off the Eagles behind a monster game from Damien Williams ($7,400; 38.3 DKFP), who had 139 rushing yards and three touchdowns while adding three catches as well for good measure. He was an absolute beast while Patrick Mahomes ($11,800; 16.84 DKFP) also threw for two scores, one to Travis Kelce ($8,600; 16.7 DKFP) and one to Tyreek Hill ($10,400; 12.7 DKFP). On the other side, Zach Ertz ($8,000; 20.6 DKFP) had eight catches for 66 yards and a touchdown and Miles Sanders ($6,600; 18.2 DKFP) ran for 141 yards on the ground. With the win, the Chiefs are now 4-5 in their nine sims, the same record the Eagles now have as well.
Chiefs hold on to defeat Cowboys in Madden simulation — 5/5/20
After a dominant first half of play, it looked as though Kansas City was going to easily blowout Dallas this afternoon. Still, though things tightened in the final two quarters, the Chiefs were eventually able to hold on for a narrow 24-21 victory. It was the usual cast of characters making a DFS impact in this one. Tyreek Hill ($10,400; 28.5 DKFP) eclipsed the 100-yard plateau for the third time in his past four games, while also scoring his fourth touchdown within that span. Damien Williams ($7,600; 14.4 DKFP) continued to provide mid-tier value with 69 rushing yards and a TD. Finally, Ezekiel Elliott ($9,800; 18.7 DKFP) crossed the goal line twice to live up to his hefty salary on this slate.
Taylor Gabriel catches a pair of touchdowns as Bears D shuts down the Chiefs — 5/9/20
The Bears didn’t need much more than Gabriel’s ($6,400; 32.4 DKFP) production to beat Kansas City. In addition to his pair of touchdown receptions, Gabriel caught six passes for 115 yards. This also meant another strong game from Mitchell Trubisky ($10,200; 25.84 DKFP). He’s been nearly unstoppable in our Madden sims and he comfortably outplayed Patrick Mahomes ($11,600; 13.72 DKFP), even though Mahomes has a 99 overall rating. Mahomes struggled to get much going against the Bears’ defense and turned the ball over twice.
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.
Chiefs hold on to defeat Texans in Madden simulation — 5/14/20
Just when you thought tonight’s game between Kansas City and Houston was going to be low-scoring, both offenses woke up late. In fact, in the Chiefs’ eventual 28-21 victory, we had more points in the fourth quarter (29) than in the first three quarters combined (20). That meant really good things for a number of players, specifically Patrick Mahomes ($11,400; 22.7 DKFP) and Travis Kelce ($9,000; 21.4 DKFP). The former MVP threw for three touchdowns in the winning effort, while the All-Pro TE caught seven passes for 84 yards and a score. For the Texans, Deshaun Watson ($10,400; 29.3 DKFP) kept things close with a pair of passing TDs and 107 yards on the ground.
Raiders upset the Chiefs in overtime– 5/16/20
On paper, this game looked like it should have been one-sided. Kansas City arguably has the best offense in Madden and the Raiders arguably have the worst defense. The prevailing wisdom was that the Chiefs would run away with this one. Instead, the Oakland defense was strong for most of the game. That was until the fourth quarter when KC exploded. Led by the combination of Patrick Mahomes ($11,800; 21 DKFP) and Tyreke Hill ($10,400; 34.2 DKFP), the Chiefs took a late lead. Derek Carr ($10,800; 23.3 DKFP) responded with a game-tying drive and then the Raiders went on to win 27-24 in overtime. Tyrell Williams ($8,600; 25.4 DKFP) did the best work for Oakland, catching a pair of touchdowns in the win.
Patrick Mahomes powers the Chiefs past the Bucs in Madden sim with three TD passes– 5/20/20
Mahomes ($11,600; 23.68 DKFP) ended up short of the 300-yard bonus with 292 yards but his three touchdown tosses still got him well over 20 DKFP. Travis Kelce ($9,000; 21.1 DKFP) caught one of those scores and finished with 91 yards, but Sammy Watkins ($6,200; 20.5 DKFP) was the real star, hauling in the other two Kansas City scores. The Bucs struggled to get anything going and had to settle for a pair of Matt Gay ($3,800; 8.0 DKFP ) field goals. The Chiefs’ DST ($3,600; 13 DKFP) had six sacks in one of their best performances of the season.
Demarcus Robinson explodes in 24-21 win over Falcons — 5/22/20
Only 4.5% of the lineup used Robinson ($6,900 CPT) in the captain’s spot but those who did were bringing home some DK Dollars. Robinson made a ridiculous 10 receptions for 155 yards and a touchdown, giving him 51.75 in the captain spot and his best performance by far in the Madden simulations. He accounted for 55% of the 277 passing yards from Mahomes, who ended up with 15 DKFP of his own. The game by Robinson will overshadow a solid afternoon from Matt Ryan ($10,600), who threw for three touchdowns and 243 yards, good for 21.72 DKFP.
Damien Williams helps Chiefs rally for 38-31 win over the Browns — 5/25/20
The Browns scored touchdowns on their first four possessions and led at one point 21-10, but as he often does in real life, Patrick Mahomes ($11,000; 28.38 DKFP) rallied his team for the 38-31 win. Mahomes threw for 347 passing yards and two scores while Williams ($7,800; 36 DKFP) ran for three touchdowns and 92 yards while adding three catches for 38 more yards. Odell Beckham Jr. ($9,800; 33.7 DKFP) also had three touchdowns for the Browns, but they were all in the first half. OBJ finished just short of the bonus with 97 yards. There was plenty of scoring across the board in this one, but the Browns offense stalled in the second half and allowed the Chiefs to get the win at virtual Arrowhead.
Jaguars defeat Chiefs in Wednesday’s simulated matchup– 5/27/20
The Jaguars pulled out an overtime win over the Chiefs in their simulated Madden contest, 27-21. The Jaguars received a big performance from Dede Westbrook ($5,600, 21.10 DKFP), who caught six passes for 85 yards and a touchdown. Almost matching his production was James O’Shaughnessy ($5,800, 20 DKFP), who registered seven receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown. Patrick Mahomes ($11,600, 24.44 DKFP) led the way for the Chiefs with 306 passing yards to go along with a passing touchdown and a rushing touchdown.
Last-second FG, Kyler Murray lift Cardinals over Chiefs, 20-17– 5/30/20
After going into the fourth down by seven, Arizona ripped off 10 unanswered points, capped by a FG as time expired, to down KC. Murray ($10,600) threw for 216 yards and two TDs in the air, while also adding 97 yards on the ground for 26.34 DKFP. Murray also was the Captain for the lineups tied for first in the Showdown contest, earning 39.51 DKFP from the Captain’s slot. Larry Fitzgerald ($9,200; 15.80 DKFP) and Christian Kirk ($5,600; 15.10 DKFP) were Murray’s top targets, with the pair each finding the end zone. Patrick Mahomes ($11,600; 14.24 DKFP) threw for 206 yards and a pair of TDs, but he also had a pair of INTs for the Chiefs. Travis. Kelce ($8,600; 14.70 DKFP) and Sammy Watkins ($6,600; 14.60 DKFP) each hauled in a TD in the loss.
