Meet The Team

Michael Cohen

Michael "TwoGun" Cohen is arguably the top NFL GPP player today. He has four million dollar wins at NFL DFS and dozens of 6 figure paydays. TwoGun has been playing DFS on a professional level for nearly ten years. A contrarian specialist, he enjoys finding players that the public is overlooking and fading chalky players he thinks could disappoint. A fun fact about TwoGun is that three of his million dollar lineups featured a Green Bay stack. He also nearly won another million with a lineup that featured the Packers defense, but ultimately he had to settle for second and only $500k that day.
