Reignmakers Week 18 Contest Recap

On a week with teams resting their starters, players looking to earn last-minute contract incentives and certain teams motivated to lose, the Week 18 Reignmakers slate saw several low-scoring and unique teams at the top of the leaderboards.

The perfect lineup this week was Davis Mills, Zack Moss, Keenan Allen, Jerry Jeudy and Stefon Diggs. It was the first time all season that Mills was on a winning team, as the Texans’ quarterback surprisingly finished as the overall QB1 in a game where Houston could have earned the first pick in the draft with a loss. The Texans narrowly beat the Colts 32-31.

Allen finished as the WR1 despite the game having no meaning for the Chargers. The veteran wideout had a season-best 8-102-2 receiving line.
