Madden20 Sim: Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 2:00 pm
The Line: Washington Redskins +2 -- Over/Under: 39
The Jacksonville Jaguars and Washington Redskins meet Tuesday afternoon in a Madden20 simulation game.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have only one player ranked in the 90s, and that’s defensive end Calais Campbell, who comes in at a 95 overall. The Jaguars next two highest rated players is their center Brandon Linder at 87 and their kicker Josh Lambo at 85 overall. It’s a sign of a bad football team when the kicker is the third highest rated player. Running back Leonard Fournette is still a tough guy who is hard to bring down even in the video game and his 92 speed makes for a solid option, but other than that there’s just not a lot to get excited about. Quarterback Nick Foles is a 71 overall, meaning he dropped six rating points since the games launch. The Jacksonville Jaguars are a team that even the diehard fans won’t play with in Madden20.
The Washington Redskins have one player ranked in the 90s, and that’s left tackle Trent Williams who brings in a 92 overall rating and a 90 awareness rating. Right guard Brandon Scherff has an 88 overall rating, giving the Redskins an above-average offensive line in Madden20. As for the skill positions, the Redskins turn to tight end Jordan Reed who has an 84 overall rating and wide receiver Terry Mclaurin who is 81 overall. Quarterback, the Redskins are led by Dwayne Haskins who is 70 overall with a 70 awareness rating and 76 speed rating. The Washington Redskins are one of those teams in this game you have to play really conservative with, as they don’t have the horses on either side of the ball to really flip a game. Rely on defense and ground game and hope Haskins doesn’t make the turnover that kills your bet.
Getting behind of these teams in a sim game isn't ideal, as you're talking about two of the bottom feeding clubs in terms of rankings, so I usually take the points wherever I can get them and call it a day. However, this total seems drastically low, even if both clubs are thin on playmakers and difference making quarterbacks. We could easily see these teams fumble away some touchdowns to get us over this total. We're not asking for much.
Give me the over 39 points.
