Congratulations to Tlewia who finished first in DraftKings Week 10 NFL Millionaire Maker Contest. Tlewia took home $1 million with this winning lineup.
In what’s becoming a theme with millionaire winners, Tlewia faded the Saints’ defense. You know Rob Ryan deserved to be fired when 12.2 percent of players use Kirk Cousins against your defense. Cousins delivered with just under 32 fantasy points.
Only 4.7 percent of players went with Jeremy Langford against the tough Rams’ defense. Tlewia believed in the Bears’ rookie and was rewarded with 40.2 points. Charcandrick West was another running back with low ownership (1.9 percent). Tlewia wasn’t scared off by West playing the Broncos’ defense and it paid off with 31.9 points.
Tlewia may have caught a break with Martavis Bryant. Landry Jones started the game but when he was injured, Ben Roethlisberger was forced into action. That surprising move helped Bryant explode for 31.8 points.
Tlewia won by nine points and Adrian Peterson was the difference. After a late interception of Derek Carr, the Vikings were going to run out the clock. AP had other ideas. He took the first handoff 80 yards for a touchdown. That set of circumstances ended up winning Tlewia the $1 million.
Overall Tlewia scored 232.36 to take first place and win $1 million.
