Washington Redskins vs. San Francisco 49ers
Madden20 Sim: Sunday, June 28, 2020 at 4:00 pm
The Line: San Francisco 49ers -7.5 -- Over/Under: 43
The Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers meet Sunday afternoon in a Madden20 NFL simulation game.
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.
The San Francisco 49ers have 10 different players who are ranked 85 overall or better. Tight end George Kittle leads the charge with a 97 overall rating and cornerback Richard Sherman has a 94 overall rating. Defensive end Nick Bosa, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and left tackle Joe Staley all have 89 ratings. The San Francisco 49ers are obviously one of the more balanced and highest rated teams in the game and have very little weakness. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has an 84 rating and an above-average acceleration to avoid pressure. On either side of the ball, you have to like the 49ers to show up and put together a consistent performance no matter who they play.
Laying more than a touchdown in these simulations is taking a risk with a computer that doesn't understand what its doing half the time. I usually side with the points whenever getting more than a touchdown. However, the Washington Redskins are one of the bottom feeders in this game and don't have the horses offensively to hang with the top tier teams. The San Francisco 49ers are possibly the deepest team in this game with 10 players ranked at least 85 overall. There's a massive gap in talent here.
I'll lay the chalk with the 49ers.
