Jade Roper-Tolbert Wins $1M in Fantasy Football Then Stripped Off for Collusion

in Fantasy Sports/NFL

If you have ever played fantasy football you know there is always money at stake, it could be as small as $500 dollar pot money between friends or on big sites likfe DraftKings it can amount to millions of dollars. This is exactly what Jade Roper-Tolber a former contestant on “The Bachelor” have achieved, winning $1 million dollars playing fantasy football.

Jade Roper-Tolbert won “Millionaire Maker” contest by DraftKings which consists of creating fantasy lineups from the NFL’s four wild card games. Her winning lineup included Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf and Minnnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook.

Because of her celebrity status, everyone was talking of her winnings and was suggested that she broke the rules of the contest by colluding with her husband to gain competitive advantage in the fantasy, this immediately caught the attention of DraftKings who went ahead with their investigation.

I am sure that high profile players have all sorts of techniques and tactics that gain them competitive advantage but they remain silent and out of the news unlike the instant fame which led to the investigation of Jade.

DraftKings official statement on the matter — “We take the integrity and fairness of our contests very seriously and are looking into this matter,”.

Jade’s husband Tanner blames sexism —

“Would the questions, accusations and curiosity about this win be the same if the winner had been male and someone who wasn’t already in the public eye? Somehow Jade picked the right lineup, got the million and the spotlight got shown on it. And people, especially since she’s a woman, assume that I do it all for her. If I had won, I bet no one would’ve raised a flag.”

Right now the money is still on-hold pending investigation by DraftKings and the Tolberts are patiently waiting for the decision.

It remains to be seen if the Tolberts decide to sue for breach of contract, but DraftKings’ terms and conditions require players to accept arbitration in the event of legal proceedings. This would mean that a limited financial award may happend as they appear before an arbitrator in Suffolk County, Massachusetts, DraftKings headquarters.

Whether there is truth to collusion or not, winning fantasy football at that scale and amount is very hard, much harder when you are a celebrity. Even if there is collusion, winning it is a lot about luck, so just play fair, follow the rules, and enjoy the game and future winnings without the baggage.

Fantasy Football Week 16 Start Sit Lineup

in Fantasy Sports/NFL

We are now in Week 16 of the NFL Fantasy games and for most leagues this is their championship game.

Here we bring you the must start and regular starts for your NFL Fantasy Week 16 Championship:

Quarterback (Top Starts)

Ryan Fitzpatrick, Dolphins (vs. CIN) – You know what you are getting with Fitzpatrick, some lousy games and some magical games. Playing against the Bengals will be loose and mid-range to high-scoring games, expect Ryan to pile up yards and TDs here.

Russell Wilson, Seattle (vs. ARI) – The Cardinals give up the most fantasy points to QBs and with the Seahawks pushing for playoff wins and chemistry, expect Russell Wilson to be on his top game today.

Dak Prescott, Cowboys (vs. PHI) – Coming off a monster win vs the Los Angeles Rams, the Cowboys are expected to hit high scoring game vs the Philadelphia Eagles. Dak should get his yardage and TDs and should be it the top 5 QBs.

Lamar Jackson, Ravens (vs. CLE) – No brainer start, really we just want to highlight Lamar, top MVP candidate here.

Quarterback (Regular Starts)

Drew Brees, Saints (at TEN), Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs (at CHI), Deshaun Watson, Texans (at TB), Aaron Rodgers, Packers (at MIN)

Running backs (Top Starts)

Mike Boone, Vikings (at GB) – The Vikings like to ran a lot and with Dalvin Cook out and Mattison uncertain as well, expect preseason HOF Mike Boone to score and provide at least 16 fantasy points. He might be the RB you need at Flex to get you that championship.

Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys (at PHI) – with a monster game against the Los Angeles Rams, expect Zeke to pile up the points against a projected high scoring game vs the Philadelphia Eagles.

Todd Gurley, Rams (at SF) – this is going to be a tough matchup and Todd Gurley may not get the yards but would be a player the Rams depend on the End Zone. The Rams wouldn’t be throwing much for TDs with the 49ers strong defense, so expect Gurley to save your fantasy with TDs.

Christian McCaffrey, Panthers (at IND) – Like Lamar Jackson, a no-brainer. As the #1 running back there is no doubt McCaffrey will get you the yardage and touchdown regardless of opponent with a very small margin of error.

Running backs (Regular Starts)

Saquon Barkley, Giants (at WAS), Aaron Jones, Packers (at MIN), Mark Ingram, Ravens (at CLE), Leonard Fournette, Jaguars (at ATL), Alvin Kamara, Saints (at TEN), Nick Chubb, Browns (vs. BAL), Austin Ekeler, Chargers (vs. OAK), Chris Carson, Seahawks (vs. ARI), Joe Mixon, Bengals (at MIA), Le’Veon Bell, Jets (vs. PIT)

Wide Receivers (Top Starts)

Terry McLaurin, Redskins (vs. NYG) – He has the speed, talent and chemistry with his Ohio State QB, expect him to score a couple of TDs and 80 yards to go with it.

Courtland Sutton, Broncos (vs. DET) – A towering physical and athletic wide receiver who has the targets and going up against a weak Lions defense, expect Courtland to have a monster game.

Wide Receiver (Regular Starts)

Michael Thomas, Saints (at TEN), DeAndre Hopkins, Texans (at TB), Tyreek Hill, Chiefs (at CHI), Amari Cooper, Cowboys (at PHI), Davante Adams, Packers (at MIN), Julio Jones, Falcons (vs. JAX), Keenan Allen, Chargers (vs. OAK), Tyler Lockett, Seahawks (vs. ARI), Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, Browns (vs. BAL), Robert Woods, Rams (at SF), Allen Robinson, Bears (vs. KC), D.J. Moore, Panthers (at IND), Julian Edelman, Patriots (vs. BUF), DeVante Parker, Dolphins (vs. CIN), D.J. Chark, Jaguars (at ATL)

Tight Ends (Top Starts)

George Kittle, 49ers (vs. LAR) – He is TE#1, and there is no room to doubt his output against the Rams. He should be able to dominate the yards and a TD in this game.

Travis Kelce, Chiefs (at CHI) – He may be TE#2 but as close as to Kittle at that elite position, Mahomes is feeding him more and more instead of spreading it to his wide receivers, expect Kelce to pour in the points against the Bears.

Tyler Higbee, Rams (vs. SFO) – He is continuously rising and the Rams have found a way to utilize him as an elite receiver. Expect him to get you the yardage needed for a strong championship ran.

Tight Ends (Regular Starts)

Darren Waller, Raiders (at LAC), Zach Ertz, Eagles (vs. DAL), Jared Cook, Saints (at TEN), Austin Hooper, Falcons (vs. JAX)

Defenses (Top Starts)

Patriots (vs. BUF), Ravens (at CLE), Steelers (at NYJ)

Defenses (Regular Starts)

Seahawks (vs. ARI), Broncos (vs. DET), Falcons (vs. JAX), Chiefs (at CHI), Bills (at NE), Chargers (vs. OAK)
