DraftKings Reignmakers | Week 13 Contest Recap
Week 13's DraftKings Reignmakers slate provided many different ways to build a profitable lineup, at least partially thanks to five of the top ten scoring players - Davante Adams, Jalen Hurts, Tyreek Hill, Joe Burrow, and Christian McCaffrey - all holding the DraftKings Reignmakers SuperStar tag.
The perfect lineup construction this week, which the CORE contest winner utilized, included Adams as the SuperStar, alongside Geno Smith, Josh Jacobs, Amon-Ra St. Brown and A.J. Brown.
Surprisingly, rostering a Browns defensive player with 30 DKFP would not have been too far off the optimal build, which seems almost impossible on a full slate of games. Josh Jacobs, A.J. Brown and Amon-Ra St. Brown were the three players who appeared on all five of the winning teams while Jalen Hurts was on three out of the five.
Week 13 held several unique contests including four web3 promotional contests, the Steve Aoki All-Star League, and the Kevin Hart Experience. The top three finishers in the web3 contests all won NFTs of varying rarity. The top fifty finishers in the Aoki League all received a Steve Aoki signed copy of his memoir “Blue: The Color of Noise." Finally, the winner of the Kevin Hart contest won $5,000 cash and an experience of a lifetime at Kevin Hart’s upcoming commercial shoot.
Here is a look at the winning teams in Week 13:
The winner of the CORE Fiat Frenzy was whohaha who scored 166.18 DKFP with the perfect lineup construction. Even though Jalen Hurts had a better outing than Geno Smith, Hurts' SuperStar designation would have forced Davante Adams to be swapped for Tyler Lockett, reducing the overall score by approximately one point.
