Meet The Team

Michael Cohen

Michael "TwoGun" Cohen is arguably the top NFL GPP player today. He is the only player who has won three Draftkings Millionaire Maker events, all in NFL and all utilizing Green Bay Packers stacks no less. TwoGun came onto the scene in 2014 when he won $700k in DraftKings Week 17 $2M guaranteed NFL GPP by placing 1st, 3rd, and 7th in the event. Two weeks later he won his first Millionaire Maker during the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. TwoGun had his largest payday ever in Week 14 of the 2017 NFL season. That week he placed 1st in the millionaire maker (and 6th in the contest to boot) led by a very contrarian Brett Hundley/Davante Adams stack. In addition to winning Millionaire Maker, he placed 1st and 2nd in the Wildcat and won 8 seats to the DraftKings Championship event for a total payday of more than $1.8 million. TwoGun continued his success last season as well. TwoGun narrowly missed his 3rd million dollar payday by placing second in Fanduel's "Deuces Wild" $2.2M GPP (1st got $1 million, TwoGun's second place "only" earned him $150k). However, needless to say he came back swinging the next week by winning DraftKings $3M "Mega Millionaire" and earning his third million dollar GPP win. Once again, he had a Packers stack led by Aaron Rodgers and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. A contrarian specialist, you'll hardly ever see TwoGun at the top of the leaderboards when the chalk hits big during NFL season. But when the chalk bricks, you may very well see this FTN pro claim his 4th million dollar win.
