We sat down for an interview with one of last week's Weekly Winners, Richard Aluzzi - Los Angeles, CA. Richard won his Qualifier contest last week and will now be playing for a 1st place prize of $1,000,000 in Week 16.

First off, congratulations on your big win last week. Tell us about the excitement during the games this past Sunday and Monday night.

I started decent with the Thursday game. I started getting excited when Vernon Davis was going off and I was shooting up the standings. After Sunday I was in first with a big shot and I was a nervous wreck. I had to watch the game online because of work and my eyes never left the box score. I almost had heart attack on the last Keenan Allen catch. When San Diego was running out clock time to celebrate and a million dollars was dancing in my head.
Now that you won a qualifier, you're playing for $1 Million in Week 16. Have you thought about how you're going to prepare for that big week?

The same as every week. Start on Monday look at matchups, fantasy points against and then start looking at projections from at least 4-5 people. Then I will do points/salary ratios and look for the best values. Look at matchups, go with my gut a little and get my lineup finalized.
Why do you play the weekly game at DraftKings?

Where to start. I love the software interface, The high scoring system, the guarantees, their creative thinking offering huge prize pools. Also their customer service is the best.
What advice do you have for players who haven't yet tried the daily games before they jump in and try the Weekly FFToolbox game?

Take your heart out of it and do some research before jumping in. Easiest thing to do is focus on best matchups on paper.
Last thoughts. The Broncos have been so good this year, but they're very expensive to put in your lineup. Will we see any Broncos in your Weekly Lineup this week and if not paying for Peyton Manning, how do you choose which one to play?

Yes I like Knowshon Moreno this week in what should a very high scoring game. I like using him cause he will see a lot of touches.
Congrats Rick and good luck in this week's Contest!
