Congratulations to Pickle45 who finished first in DraftKings Week 17 NFL Millionaire Maker Contest. Pickle45 took home $1 million with this winning lineup.
The Steelers’ offense bombed in Week 16 against the Ravens. Pickle45 relied on a bounce back game from Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. Pickle45’s belief in the Steelers duo was rewarded. Roethlisberger scored 28.7 points, while Brown put up 39.7 points.
Pickle45 went with two hot players in the Giants/Eagles game. Rashad Jennings and Zach Ertz have both come on over the last three weeks. That continued on Sunday. Jennings scored 28.6 points and Ertz scored 27.2 points.
Pickle45 had one of the more interesting starts of the season with Terrance Williams. With Dez Bryant out, Pickle45 played Williams and he would have a rare, big game. Not many people agreed with that logic, as Williams was only owned by 1.2 percent of players. Pickle45’s strategy paid off. Williams scored 28.3 points. By starting Williams, Pickle45 was able to take first place by just 1.1 points.
Overall, Pickle45 scored a total of 242.56 points to finish in first place and win the $1 million.
