2017 DraftKings FFWC Winner: chess_is_ok
It was a who’s who of daily fantasy sports at the 2017 DraftKings Fantasy Football World Championship in Miami, Florida, with a huge number of top players in attendance.
That cheap, underowned approach allowed him to fit in both Le’Veon Bell and Todd Gurley, who combined for over 78 fantasy points and helped chess_is_ok storm to the top of the standings by the end of the afternoon.
Rounding out the top five were scout326 ($1,000,000), bidle ($750,000), anilprao88 ($500,000), and BigHopper0066 ($350,000).
RotoGrinders’ own BigT44 (21st place for $80,000) and GrindersCal (40th place for $50,000) both had respectable showings with their single entries, finishing in the top 20 percent of the stacked field. Two-time live final winner and Ownership Report contributor, escot4, finished 53rd for $40,000.
Congrats to chess_is_ok for the big payday, and to all that qualified!
