Madden Stream ResultsSeahawks edge out 49ers in NFL simulation — 3/29/20
In a tightly contested simulation that would’ve brought a smile to the face of Jim Harbaugh, Seattle outlasted San Francisco 10-7 this evening on DraftKings. Still, despite the underwhelming offensive performances on both sides, each starting tight end found a way to shine. Will Dissly ($7,000; 13.0 DKFP) hauled in three passes for 40 yards in the win, while also opening the game’s scoring with a touchdown reception mid-way through the second quarter. As for George Kittle ($9,400; 18.6 DKFP), the All-Pro was the contest’s leading receiver with five catches for 76 yards and a touchdown of his own.
49ers 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.
Cardinals knock off 49ers on late field goal, 17-15 — 4/12/20
The Cardinals got their first win of the Madden streams by knocking off the 49ers to improve to 1-2 while dropping San Francisco to 1-2 as well. Jimmy Garoppolo ($11,200; 13.12 DKFP) threw two touchdowns with 153 passing yards in the loss while David Johnson ($2,000; 7.7 DKFP) ran for one of the Cardinals’ scores and Christian Kirk ($6,200; 9.5 DKFP) caught the other. The only field goal of the game came from Zane Gonzalez ($3,800; 6 DKFP) with just seconds left and gave the Cardinals the win. Emmanuel Sanders ($10,800; 20.8 DKFP) and Kendrick Bourne ($3,600; 17.8 DKFP) were both big producers as well, and Sanders was the Captain’s pick in the winning lineup, shared by eight entries.
49ers hold on to defeat Packers in Madden simulation — 4/17/20
George Kittle ($9,000; 37.0 DKFP) had been surprising silent in each of San Francisco’s past two simulations. In fact, since DraftKings made the switch to Arcade Mode, the All-Pro tight end has basically been invisible. Well, that trend quickly came to an end in the 49ers’ 22-17 victory over Green Bay on Friday night. Kittle caught 10 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown in the win, a stat line that doesn’t even factor in that Kittle had a third quarter touchdown taken back due to a review. On the Packers’ side of things, it was Geronimo Allison ($2,200; 25.6 DKFP) providing all the value, finishing with 106 yards and a touchdown of his own.
49ers trounce Ravens in Madden simulation — 4/19/20
To say that Tevin Coleman ($8,200; 27.2 DKFP) has been up-and-down so far in these Madden simulations would be an understatement. The highs have been high, but the lows have been exceedingly low. With just under two minutes remaining in Sunday night’s tilt between San Francisco and Baltimore, it appeared Coleman would again be in the latter camp; but that was not to be the case. The 26-year-old ripped off a massive 75-yard touchdown, which sent owners into a frenzy and cemented the 49ers’ 30-18 victory. In total, Coleman would rush for 150 yards, while also registering two catches for an additional 12 yards. It was certainly a high.
George Kittle destroys the Eagles’ pass defense — 4/25/20
The Eagles had no answer for Kittle ($9,800) and he had one of the best games we have seen in a Madden simulation. He scored 42.3 DKFP on 10 catches for 173 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Playing him in the Captain’s slot was needed to do well in this contest. All of of the production was needed since San Fran won by a narrow 24-21 margin. In a loss, Carson Wentz ($10,400) was the next highest performing fantasy player in the game. He tossed three touchdown passes and scored 19.94 DKFP.
Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins lead Texans past 49ers– 4/28/20
Hopkins ($10,800; 27.7 DKFP) might not be a real-life Texan anymore, but his simulated chemistry with Watson ($11,200; 35.96 DKFP) was still strong as Houston dominated the 49ers in a not-as-close-as-it-looks 28-21 victory Tuesday night. The Texans had a double-digit lead for most of the game, and the 49ers only got it back down to seven with 15 seconds left on the clock. Watson threw for three TDs and rushed for a fourth, also contributing 234 yards through the air and 86 on the ground. Hopkins was the recipient of 127 of those yards and one of the TDs. San Francisco was led by Deebo Samuel ($5,600; 19 DKFP), who snagged six receptions for a clean 100 yards.
49ers hold on to beat Patriots in Madden simulation– 4/30/20
In a simulation that lacked offensive firepower, two mid-tier wide receivers were likely the difference between DFS success and failure. San Francisco survived a fourth quarter threat from New England to take this one by a score of 17-10, but the real story was the play of Deebo Samuel ($5,600; 26.7 DKFP). The rookie wideout is suddenly on quite a roll, as he registered his second-straight 100-yard receiving performance. However, unlike his showing against Houston, this one came with a touchdown. For the Patriots, Samuel’s stat was almost mirrored by Mohamed Sanu ($5,800; 21.4 DKFP), who finished the loss with six receptions for 94 yards and his own TD.
49ers make easy work of Bills in Madden simulation– 5/3/20
That one wasn’t even close. Like, not even for a second. From the opening kickoff till the end of the fourth quarter, San Francisco absolutely demolished Buffalo, eventually taking this stream by a final score of 31-6. Heck, that score might not even do this tilt justice. To wit, Josh Allen ($10,400; 5.0 DKFP) was held to 51 passing yards and, if we’re being completely honest, he probably should’ve thrown at least three interceptions. It was bad. Conversely, the 49ers’ offense moved the ball at will. Jimmy Garoppolo ($10,800; 21.8 DKFP) passed for 245 yards and three touchdowns, while Tevin Coleman ($8,400; 24.5 DKFP) racked up an impressive 155 rushing yards and a TD of his own.
Tevin Coleman dominates in Tuesday’s simulation– 5/5/20
Coleman ($7,600; 47.2 DKFP) almost single-handedly defeated the Vikings in Tuesday’s simulation, piling up 235 rushing yards and two TDs as the 49ers won 31-17. In case that wasn’t enough, he also caught five passes for 37 yards. Coleman wasn’t the only running back to go off, however, as the Vikings’ Dalvin Cook ($9,200; 20.9 DKFP) put up 106 yards and a TD of his own. George Kittle ($8,600; 18.1 DKFP) was the next best 49er, compiling 81 yards and a TD on four receptions.
49ers smother Titans in Madden simulation– 5/7/20
With the majority of the Madden world assuming Tevin Coleman ($8,000; 12.4 DKFP) was the San Francisco player to own this evening, it turned out to be an even more obvious answer. George Kittle ($9,000; 24.9 DKFP) was an unstoppable force in the 49ers’ eventual 21-14 victory over Tennessee, hauling in eight passes for 89 yards an a touchdown. Heck, Kittle even caught the two-point. conversion seconds after scoring said TD. Still, this isn’t exactly an unprecedented performance from the All-Pro tight end. Kittle’s now registered eight touchdown receptions in his past eight games, a span that’s seen the TE exceeded 20.0 DKFP three times.
49ers comeback to take down Rams in Madden simulation — 5/11/20
When it comes to setting lineups in Showdown contests that feature San Francisco, Kendrick Bourne ($4,200; 24.4 DKFP) has often been viewed as a viable value play. However, I’m not sure the 31.2% of people that rostered the wideout were quite prepared for his performance this evening versus Los Angeles. The 49ers defeated the Rams 32-22 with Bourne hauling in the eventual game-winning touchdown with just under 30 seconds left in the fourth quarter. It was Bourne’s second TD of the simulation, which is more scores than the WR had managed in his past six games combined. This was also Jimmy Garoppolo’s ($10,800; 32.0 DKFP) best showing in these streams, as the QB eclipsed 30.0 DKFP for the first time.
Tevin Coleman and the 49ers stomp the Saints in soggy San Francisco — 5/13/20
To start off a full day of bad weather games in our Madden simulations, the 49ers dominated the time of possession and cruised to a 27-14 win over the visiting Saints, who looked lost without their dome. Coleman ($7,600; 29.4 DKFP) was the workhorse, piling up 153 yards and a touchdown on well over 20 carries and adding three catches for 21 more yards. Jimmy Garoppolo ($10,600; 14.88 DKFP) threw the other two touchdowns for San Francisco connecting with Kendrick Bourne ($3,800; 11.3 DKFP), who was a great value play once again. Although the Saint struggled, Michael Thomas ($10,800; 23.2 DKFP) saved his fantasy day with two touchdowns in the second half.
Steelers use late push to defeat 49ers in Madden simulation– 5/15/20
Ben Roethlisberger ($10,800; 28.4 DKFP) hadn’t exactly been lighting the scoreboard on fire as of late. The veteran QB had failed to eclipse even the 200-yard passing mark in each of his past three simulations, and it didn’t seem like better times were on the horizon with a daunting San Francisco defense on the schedule. Well, it turned out to be Big Ben’s night, after all. The former Super Bowl Champion tossed four touchdowns and helped Pittsburgh emerge victorious by a final score of 28-24. Roethlisberger’s main targets were Vance McDonald ($6,400; 31.8 DKFP) and James Washington ($4,800; 20.1 DKFP), with the former catching 10 passes and the latter grabbing a pair of TDs.
49ers come back to narrowly defeat Bears in Madden simulation– 5/18/20
You almost had to assume that a game between San Francisco and Chicago was going to be a defensive struggle; and that’s pretty much exactly what we got on Monday night. By the time it was over, the 49ers had failed to score a single offensive touchdown, yet the team emerged victorious by a score of 15-14. So, who was the breakout fantasy star of this hard-fought tilt? Robbie Gould ($3,800; 19.0 DKFP), of course. The veteran kicker nailed five field goals, including a 41-yarder to put things away with just seconds left in the fourth quarter. For the Bears, Allen Robinson ($9,800; 25.9 DKFP) had a fantastic showing, collecting six catches, 109 yards and a touchdown.
49ers grind out win in the rain– 5/20/20
In a rain game against the Colts, San Fran was able to wind down the clock on the strength of its run game. Tevin Coleman ($8,000; 17.4 DKFP) had another strong game on the ground. He rushed for exactly 100 yards and did most of his damage in the fourth quarter. The Niners set up the win by scoring early touchdowns through the air. Jimmy Garoppolo ($10,600; 21.94 DKFP) didn’t appear to be impeded by the weather and tossed a trio of touchdown passes, two of which were hauled in by Emmanuel Sanders ($9,800; 29.6 DKFP). Sanders also had 96 receiving yards and easily led all players in this contest in terms of fantasy production.
