The DraftKings Reignmakers celebrity DFS contest is officially underway, and we have a new single week high score, courtesy of Pauly D. The former Jersey Shore star put together a lineup that compiled 167.14 points in Week 2, and earned $10,000 for St Judes Children’s Hospital.

The Reignmakers contest has five celebrities providing a DFS lineup for DraftKings’ Fantasy Football Millionaire contest each Sunday. The top point-scorer will earn $10,000 for their charity of choice. Starting in Week 3, anybody who enters the Millionaire contest and scores higher than all of the Reignmakers will gain entry into a $10,000 contest.

Here’s a look at Pauly D’s winning lineup for Week 2:

QB: Kyler Murray
RB: Ezekiel Elliott
RB: Derrick Henry
WR: Davante Adams
WR: Diontae Johnson
WR: Corey Davis
TE: Jordan Reed
FLEX: Jonathan Taylor
DST: Buccaneers

Murray was the highest-scoring player used this past week among the Reignmakers. He finished sixth in total points among all players in the Millionaire contest. Pauly D picked up considerable value with running back Jonathan Taylor, wide receiver Diontae Johnson, tight end Jordan Reed, and the Bucs defense. They were among the top scorers at their respective position groups, which allowed Pauly D to cruise to victory. Josephine Skriver came in second with 140.44 points.

This weekend was bigger than Week 1, with three of the top four scorers to date coming out of Week 2. Jermaine Dupri won last week’s contest, scoring 150.1 points thanks to a lineup led by wide receiver Davante Adams and running back Josh Jacobs. You can view full lineups, results, and standings here.
