DraftKings NFL Leaderboard Live: Week 14 DFS Fantasy Football Results, Highlights and Standouts

Zach Thompson takes a look at the leaderboard for the biggest DraftKings contest for Week 14 in the NFL.

The NFL regular season is in its final month, and there’s another chance for a million-dollar top prize on DraftKings in this week’s $3.5M Fantasy Football Millionaire contest. We’ll track that contest throughout the day and keep you up to date on the leading entries along with the highlights from around the NFL.

You can also find coverage throughout the day on The Dream Stream where Leaderboard Live will keep you up to speed and offer analysis for all the big plays and injuries throughout Sunday.


Contest Leaderboard

With all 13 games on the main slate in the books, it looks like the winner of this week’s Milly Maker is ‘Fortyforner’ with an impressive 222.74 DKFP. It was actually Derek Carr ($6,000; 28.84 DKFP), who had a late rushing touchdown that was meaningless to the outcome of the game, but critical to his fantasy owners. It moved ‘Fortyfortner’ to the top since that entry was one of just 0.8% of entries that rolled with the Raiders’ QB. This entry also included early-game stars Derrick Henry ($8,700; 39.2 DKFP), David Montgomery ($6,500; 27.5 DKF) and A.J. Brown ($7,300; 27.2 DKFP). Nelson Agholor ($4,700 24.0 DKFP) and Mike Gesicki ($4,500; 23.5 DKFP) also returned great value under $5K for that entry that ended up with a win by less than half-a-point. The entry from ‘mbenson’ in second had T.Y. Hilton ($5,100; 25.6 DKFP) and would have walked away the winner if Hilton had just one more catch.

Many of the top group of entries got a big game in the late window from the Washington Football Team D/ST ($2,800; 23.0 DKFP), and our leader at the end of the early games, ‘F0rsaken’ slid all the way to No. 10.

Note: Leaderboard standings and results current as of 7:45 p.m. ET


Standout Performers

Late Standouts

Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts at Las Vegas Raiders, 33.5 DKFP

Taylor had a pair of rushing scores and 150 yards for the Colts, as Indy got a big road win in Las Vegas. He had a 62-yard score highlighted below in the third quarter and added a three-yard plunge in the fourth quarter. He helped Indy improve to 9-4, while dropping the Raiders to 7-6. The win keeps the Colts in the driver’s seat in the wild card race heading into their three remaining games against the Texans, Steelers and Jaguars.

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions, 30.9 DKFP

There were only two QBs on the slate that had over 30 DKFP on the day. Tua Tagovailoa ($5,400) in the early wave and Rodgers in the late games. He threw three touchdowns and totalled 290 passing yards while running for another key score in Green Bay’s 31-24 victory. Rodgers gets a great matchup next Saturday night against the Panthers before finishing with the Titans and the Bears. Green Bay has clinched the division title but is still playing for playoff seeding.

Washington Football Team D/ST, Washington Football Team at San Francisco 49ers, 23.0 DKFP

Washington’s D/ST was a full five DKFP better than every other D/ST on the slate after their dominant performance against San Francisco. They allowed a late touchdown and two-point conversion, or else it would have been an even better day for them. With four sacks, an interception, two fumble recoveries and two defensive touchdowns, they literally carried their offense to a win. Washington’s offense only had 12 first downs and 193 yards over their 12 drives, but they still got the win because that’s how awesome their defense played.


Early Standouts

Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars, 39.2 DKFP

Henry ran wild and posted another 200-yard performance with a pair of rushing scores. Henry has run for over 200 yards in four games since 2018 and the rest of the NFL has only been able to put up four performances like that during that span. He also has an incredibly easy schedule coming up the next three weeks against the Lions, Packers and Texans. He seems to have the inside track for finishing the season as the leading rusher in the league and a fantasy playoff MVP. He also caught both his targets for seven more yards just to add a few PPR points on top of everything else.

Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 31.04 DKFP

Tua was a great value at only $5,400 against the Chiefs and almost led his team to a nice comeback at the end. He threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns while adding a third score on the ground. He’ll try to help Miami push for the playoffs with three remaining games against the Patriots, Raiders and Bills.

Allen Robinson II, Chicago Bears vs. Houston Texans, 27.5 DKFP

The Bears steamrolled the Texans with a big first half from Mitchell Trubisky ($5,600; 24.98 DKFP). While Trubisky spread the ball around, Robinson was definitely his favorite option, catching 9 of 13 targets for 123 yards and a touchdown. Robinson has been boom-or-bust this season but came up big this week in a great matchup. Next week, he faces the Vikings in an NFC North rivalry before finishing with the Jaguars and Packers.


Fantasy Football Highlights

4 p.m. ET games — Second Half

The Seahawks continued to cruise past the Jets. Russell Wilson ($7,900; 23.14 DKFP) threw a pair of touchdown passes in the third quarter as Seattle opened up a 37-3 lead. Wilson was replaced in the fourth quarter by former-Jet Geno Smith ($4,500; 1.12 DKFP), and the Seahawks coasted to a 40-3 victory as the Jets continued their winless season.

The Colts got a long touchdown run from Jonathan Taylor ($5,800; 33.5 DKFP) in the highlight below to increase their lead to 10 points over the Raiders, and he later added another short score on a handoff from Nyheim Hines ($5,200; 11.5 DKFP) in the wildcat. The Raiders got a late rushing touchdown from Derek Carr ($6,000; 28.84 DKFP), who had a big game in the loss, but Las Vegas rolled snake eyes, and the Colts left with a big 44-27 road win.

Washington led 13-7 at halftime, but Alex Smith ($5,200; 1.28 DKFP) wasn’t able to return for the second half. He was replaced by Dwayne Haskins ($4,800; 0.84 DKFP), but it was the Washington D/ST ($2,800; 23.0 DKFP) that kept dominating, including another touchdown in the highlight below as the Football Team got a 23-15 win against the 49ers.

The Eagles had a 17-0 lead at halftime, but Alvin Kamara ($7,100; 22.4 DKFP) got the Saints on the board and Taysom Hill ($6,600; 20.94 DKFP) hit Emmanuel Sanders ($4,300; 13.8 DKFP) to pull New Orleans within three points. After Miles Sanders’ ($6,200; 32.6 DKFP) second touchdown of the day, Hill threw another touchdown to Jared Cook ($3,800; 12.7 DKFP), but it was too little too late for New Orleans, who lost their first game since Week 3 against Green Bay.

The Packers and Lions were tied 14-14 at halftime, but Aaron Rodgers ($7,500; 31.1 DFKP) ran for the score below and threw a fourth quarter touchdown to Robert Tonyan ($4,200; 14.6 DKFP) as the Packers opened things up in the second half. Kerryon Johnson ($4,200; 8.3 DKFP) had a late touchdown.

The Chargers tied up their game against the Falcons with a touchdown pass from Justin Herbert ($6,800; 16.72 DKFP) to Tyron Johnson ($3,000; 17.5 DKFP) in the highlight below. As it looked like the Falcons were in a great position to kick a game-winning field goal, Matt Ryan ($5,700; 10.26 DKFP) threw a brutal interception and ultimately the Chargers pulled out a win with a field goal of their own as time expired.


4 p.m. ET games — First Half

There were six games in the Week 14 late window, including some games with major playoff implications. The Colts and Raiders met in a very important AFC matchup, and T.Y. Hilton ($5,100) continued his recent surge of success with a pair of touchdowns in the first half, including the one in the highlight below. The Raiders got two touchdown passes from Derek Carr ($6,000), but trailed 20-14 at halftime.

The Packers fell behind the Lions early after a T.J. Hockenson ($5,000) touchdown, but Aaron Rodgers ($7,500) and company rallied with a touchdown to Davante Adams ($9,300) in the highlight below and later a touchdown to Marquez Valdes-Scantling ($3,900) to take a 14-7 lead. The Lions answered back just before halftime, though, with a very nice drive capped by a D’Andre Swift ($6,500) touchdown to tie the game, 14-14, at the half.

In Seattle, the Seahawks dominated the Jets and led 23-3 after a pair of touchdown passes from Russell Wilson ($7,900) including one to D.K. Metcalf ($8,400) in the highlight below. Chris Carson ($6,900) also had a touchdown just before halftime.

The Falcons pulled out the trick plays for their game against the Chargers with WR Russell Gage ($4,500) throwing a touchdown to Calvin Ridley ($7,500). Keenan Allen ($7,700) had a touchdown catch for Los Angeles, but the Falcons got a more conventional touchdown from Matt Ryan ($5,700) to Laquon Treadwell ($3,000) to go up 17-10 before halftime.

The Eagles looked solid behind Jalen Hurts ($5,100), who made some nice plays, including finding Alshon Jeffery ($3,000) for a touchdown. Philadelphia added a field goal to take a 10-0 lead, and then Miles Sanders ($6,200) ripped off the 82-yard run in the highlight below to give the Eagles a 17-0 lead at halftime.

The 49ers took an early lead against the Washington Football Team after a short run by Jeff Wilson Jr. ($4,000), but Washington kicked a pair of FGs to cut the lead to just a point. The Washington DST ($2,800) came up with a huge play just before halftime in the highlight below.


1 p.m. ET games — Second Half

After trailing early in their visit to Miami, the Chiefs took the lead just before halftime and dominated in the second half. Mecole Hardman ($3,200) had a return for a touchdown, and Travis Kelce ($7,400) did Travis Kelce things like in the highlight below. The Dolphins rallied late, though, with Tua Tagovailoa ($5,400) rushing for a score to cap his big day

The Titans also got a comfortable 31-10 win over the Jaguars behind that monster game from Derrick Henry ($8,700; 39.2 DKFP). The Jags went to Gardner Minshew II ($5,600; 13.32 DKFP) in the second half, who did have a touchdown throw to Keelan Cole ($3,700; 19.7 DKFP) but couldn’t get the Jags back in the game.

Another AFC South team, the Texans, were also trying to stage a big comeback in their matchup with the Bears, but they never got any traction in the second half, going down 36-7 in a big win for Chicago. Andy Dalton ($5,500; 18.6 DKFP) and the Cowboys rolled past his former team, 30-7, after building an early lead, and Dalton finished off the scoring with a touchdown toss to Tony Pollard ($5,300; 12.8 DKFP)

Drew Lock ($5,100; 26.6 DKFP) hit K.J. Hamler ($3,000; 22.6 DKFP) for a touchdown just after halftime to help the Broncos expand on their lead over the Panthers and later found Tim Patrick ($4,200; 12.6 DKFP) for another score in the highlight below as Denver went up, 25-10. Teddy Bridgewater ($5,800; 20.42 DKFP) ran for a score as the Panthers tried to rally, but Lock finished off his big day with a fourth score which was also to Hamler, who finished with just two catches but 86 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Mike Davis ($6,400; 26.3 DKFP) had his second touchdown run of the day late, but the Broncos still won, 32-27.

In Tampa Bay, the Buccaneers pulled away after a touchdown from Tom Brady ($6,900; 15.4 DKFP) to Rob Gronkowski ($4,800; 7.2 DKFP). Kirk Cousins ($6,200; 18.1 DKFP) responded with a passing touchdown to his TE, Irv Smith Jr. ($3,100; 16.3 DKFP) to close to within a single score, but costly penalties and more mishaps in the kicking game allowed the Bucs to win, 26-14.

After Kenyan Drake ($5,500; 16 DKFP) scored a short-yardage touchdown to put the Cardinals up 20-0, the Giants got on the board with a rushing touchdown from Dion Lewis ($4,000; 6.4 DKFP). The Cardinals DST ($2,700; 18 DKFP) came to play, though, with eight sacks and three fumble recoveries. DeAndre Hopkins ($7,600; 25.6 DKFP) also had a big game as highlighted below.


1 p.m. ET games — First Half

The first touchdown of the early slate was a big one as David Montgomery ($6,500) helped the Bears take an early lead with the 80-yard touchdown in the highlight below. Jimmy Graham ($3,000) had a touchdown catch to put Chicago up 14-0, but Deshaun Watson ($7,600) connected with Keke Coutee ($5,000) to get the Texans on the board. The Bears’ DST ($3,000) added a safety and Mitchell Trubisky ($5,600) threw another touchdown, this time finding Darnell Mooney ($3,500) to put the Bears up, 23-7. Just before halftime, Mitchell Magic struck again with a three-yard pass to Allen Robinson ($6,800), who was also closing in on 100 yards

In New York, the Arizona Cardinals got a pair of FGs on the board early to lead the Giants, 6-0. TE Dan Arnold ($3,600), who only catches touchdowns, had another score in the second quarter as Kyler Murray ($7,200) led Arizona to a 13-0 lead at halftime.

The Cincinnati Bengals had three fumbles in the first half against the Dallas Cowboys, who converted all three turnovers into points as they built a 17-0 lead including this touchdown return of a fumble by Aldon Smith. The Bengals tried to climb back in it, and they started on the comeback trail with a touchdown catch by A.J. Green ($3,000) on a pass from Brandon Allen ($4,900).

The Dolphins harrassed Patrick Mahomes ($8,100) early in their game against the Chiefs forcing a fumble and even picking up a 30-yard sack. Ultimately, they took a 7-0 lead on a seven-yard strike from Tua Tagovailoa ($5,400) to Mike Gesicki ($4,500). After a Miami FG, Tyreek Hill ($8,500) scored a rushing touchdown in the highlight below to cut the Dolphins’ lead to 10-7. Just before halftime, the Chiefs took the lead on a touchdown pass from Mahomes to Travis Kelce ($7,400).

Coming off their bye week, the Bucs fell behind early to the Vikings on a short touchdown run from Dalvin Cook ($9,400). The Vikings missed the extra point and also missed a field goal before Tom Brady ($6,900) hit Scotty Miller ($3,000) for the score to give Tampa Bay a 7-6 lead. Following another missed field goal, Ronald Jones ($6,100) expanded the Bucs’ lead with a one-yard score, and Tampa Bay led 17-6 at halftime.

The Denver Broncos took an early 6-0 lead on an 83-yard punt return for a touchdown. The Carolina Panthers answered back, though, with a touchdown by Mike Davis ($6,400). The Broncos lost TE Noah Fant to an illness, but his replacement Nick Vannett ($2,500) caught a touchdown from Drew Lock ($5,100) as the Broncos took a 13-7 lead.

After blocking a Jaguars’ FG, the Titans got a touchdown on a flea-flicker from Ryan Tannehill ($6,700) to A.J. Brown ($7,300) in the highlight below. Derrick Henry ($8,700) ran for a 36-yard touchdown and hit the 100-yard bonus in the first half while extending the Titans’ lead to 17-3 at halftime.
