The Week 15 FanDuel Sunday Millionended with a one-point win for Dank18, who turned $25 into $175,000. All Dank18 needed was the Denver Broncos to explode, and that’s exactly what happened, as Brock Osweiler threw for three touchdowns and almost 300 yards.
Dank18 stacked Osweiler with receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. The former had 10 catches for 181 yards and a score, while Thomas found the end zone twice on five catches for 61 yards. Osweiler also rushed for a TD in the process and given that the Broncos only scored 27 points, Dank18’s trio of players from that team accounted for all of their touchdowns. All three were not highly owned given Osweiler’s recent struggles.
Dank18’s big hit came from Cardinals running back David Johnson, who was 31% owned, but made his owners proud, scoring three times on 29 carries for 187 yards. He added another 42 yards through the air and will likely be one of the highest-owned running backs of Week 16.
Dank18 also rostered Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams, who didn’t have that blockbuster of a day, but scored a touchdown and amassed 14 points. Dank18 paired Williams with teammate Antonio Brown in an interesting move. Brown shredded Denver’s elite secondary for two touchdowns and scored 38 points on FanDuel. He was Dank18’s second highest scorer.
At tight end, Dank18 selected Jordan Reed, who continues to be highly effective when healthy. In the Redskins’ win over the Bills at home, Reed had seven catches for 84 yards and two touchdowns. He has scored three times and seen 16 targets in his last two games.
Kicker Jason Myers largely was a dud for Dank18, only scoring six points for Jacksonville. At defense, Dank18 selected New England, which had one fumble recovery, five sacks, and two picks against the Tennessee Titans, who only mustered 16 points on offense.
