0
Travis Kelce was on the winning DraftKings Millionaire Maker lineup this week

By almost seven points, ‘Uberdetroit007‘won the NFL Wild Card Weekend Millionaire Maker on DraftKings. He was the only player to score over 200 points and finished with a Wild Card Weekend total of 200.36.

It was a hodge-podge lineup, but that’s what you need to win a 172,000-entrant contest on a four-game slate. His quarterback was Kirk Cousins, who largely disappointed, but still finished with 329 passing yards and two total touchdowns. Cousins was 31.8% owned and generated 25.36 points on DraftKings.

At running back, ‘Uberdetroit007’ rostered two players who had largely been relegated to third-string duties in recent weeks:James Starksand Chris Thompson. Starks, who had been behind Eddie Lacy and John Kuhn on the depth chart, rumbled for 53 yards and a score for Green Bay and earned 14.5 points. Thompson, who had been passed by Pierre Thomas for third-down duties, turned in eight catches for 89 yards and almost 20 DraftKings points. Starks was 13.8% owned, while Uberdetroit007 earned separation with Thompson’s 0.6% ownership.

‘Uberdetroit007’ took the money he saved at running back and rostered AJ Green and Antonio Brown at receiver. Brown was 66.2% owned, while Green was 47.6%. Brown posted a 7-119 line before being knocked out with a concussion late in the game, while Green had a 5-71-1 stat line. Brown and the banged-up Steelers now head to Denver to face the league’s top defense.

Also at receiver, ‘Uberdetroit007’ had Martavis Bryant, who had largely underwhelmed in recent weeks, sinking his ownership percentage to just 17.2%. Bryant had five catches for 29 yards and a score and added 44 yards rushing for a total of 18.3 points.

At tight end, ‘Uberdetroit007’ selected the premier tight end play of the weekend, Jordan Reed. The Washington tight end was the most expensive player at his position, but had 30 points on nine catches for 120 yards and a TD. He was 54% owned.

At the flex position, ‘Uberdetroit007’ had the second best tight end play of the weekend, Travis Kelce. He had largely been forgotten about during the second half of the season and lodged his first 100-yard game since Week 1, catching eight balls for 128 yards.

At defense, ‘Uberdetroit007’ had Kansas City, who shut out Houston and added three sacks, four interceptions, and a fumble recovery, good for 29 points on DraftKings. The Chiefs defense was 24% owned and now has a date with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
