    Jackpots are all the rage these days. We’re back with a new iteration this week in the Sunday Million. If a player in your lineup scores the longest rushing or receiving touchdown, you’ll win a share of $100,000 — in addition to any other prizes you win in the contest. For reference, here are the players that would have earned you a share of $100K throughout the first five weeks of the season:

    So, yeah. It could be anyone. As per our previous jackpot terms:

    - Only lineups in the NFL Sunday Million contest on 10/14/18 will count towards this promotion – Only rushing and receiving touchdowns will count towards the promotion, not passing touchdowns or touchdowns scored by defense or special teams – Users can only earn a maximum of 1 reward per person. – All users that have the player(s) with the longest touchdown of the day in their lineup will earn an equal share of the $100,000 jackpot

    Have fun out there!

    Another week. Another Jackpot.

    This week, we’re changing things up. NBA season has started. It’s time to evolve. On Thursday night we’ll be running our first cross sport jackpot. The rules are simple:

    Enter the Thursday Million. In your MVP slot, pick the player who scores the LAST rushing or receiving touchdown of the game. Then, enter the Thursday night $400K King Dame. In your MVP slot, pick the player who hits the FIRST three pointer of the game. Do all that, and split $100K with everyone else who did. Odds are that the individual payout will be larger than all of our other jackpots, so you’re not going to want to miss this one.

    Oh, and there’s more.

    Thanks to @dailymail, we have our Sunday Million jackpot set for this weekend. If you select the cheapest player in the FanDuel pool this week that scores a rushing or receiving touchdown, you’ll win a share of $50K. For reference, here are players that would have won weeks 1-5 and the corresponding payouts with a $50K jackpot.

    Week 1 – $8333.33 – Will Dissly
    Week 2 – $247.52 – Tyler Higbee, Michael Roberts
    Week 3 – $77.52 – Dallas Goedert, Jason Croom
    Week 4 – $55.43 – Geoff Swaim
    Week 5 – $308.64 – Lance Kendricks, Virgil Green

    There’s definitely a pattern there. Let’s see who takes it home this week.

    Have fun out there!

    Lowest owned TD scorer. That would guarantee the jackpot would be pretty good.

    First td caught by anyone thrown by NOT the qb

    You guys realize this is not extra value.. they are pulling this 100k from the prize pool and reducing the regular prizes. Don’t let them fool you as they continue to increase the rake and make it harder to win.

    First QB to rush for a TD. First TE to catch a pass over 25 yards.

    If my own doesn’t get used I really like the idea of this one as it means you’ll actually get to have a few people get a nice score out of it as a true ‘jackpot’ since otherwise it is typically so many people that they’re getting like $10

    Though I did realize this becomes problematic for FD since they refuse to let users export contest csv and see ownership numbers after lock that they’d have some serious transparency issues with this as nobody could verify how many people actually owned the super dart apart from taking FD’s word for it

  • allgoodbx

    Why split this 10,000 ways, why not just give the lowest scoring lineup who has this particular player the full 100k?

    Appreciate the responses, everyone! Going to close off the free entry giveaway here. There are definitely some good ideas to work with. Pay close attention to next week’s jackpot, as it could be yours. If you responded on here with your username, you’ll have a Sunday Million entry on your upcoming lineups page.

    Regarding the jackpot, it is strictly added value. We are paying out $2.75M in cash as we normally do. The $100K is not included in that.

    i asked that question 3x and never got an answer so glad we finally got it…since it is added value what does the rake come out to be? 16 percent

    The FD rep answered that question just above this post.

    “Regarding the jackpot, it is strictly added value. We are paying out $2.75M in cash as we normally do. The $100K is not included in that.”

  • mambaland

    FD rep…if this was offered the last few weeks can you tell us the amount the winners would have received?

  • bigez952

    @mambaland said...

    With the added value the rake comes out to be 12.94% if the contest fills which isn’t that bad compared to what it is for normal contests. Without the added value it is the standard 15.9%. Of course those numbers assume the contest fills 100% which I am not sure if it normally does every week and I don’t usually play the super top heavy contests.

  • ataros

    I stand corrected, sorry for the confusion.

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    I know the suggestion/free ticket thing has passed, I missed seeing that unfortunately, but still felt like throwing an idea out there…I wouldn’t mind turning it into more of a “bad beat jackpot” make it like QB w/ the most interceptions. Make it so it’s a happy surprise that comes from what would have been a disaster pick that could have ruined your day.
    It also adds some other layers to it, not thatbthese are really worth chasing, but there would bound to be a handful of lineups playing suboptimal players that benefits the rest of the field.

    A bad beat would be pretty cool, but only if its a tier 1 or 2 player.

  • danliebl

    Lowest scoring player that registers an offensive stat.

  • abhikommareddy

    First Running back to score a receiving touchdown.

  • mambaland

    anyone figure out what the last weeks would have paid if this was the criteria of longest TD….this idea has nothing to do with anything but i always contend the person who scores the touchdown has to kick the extra point and kickoff

  • Syzltuth

    Just saw I was given an entry into the million, thanks a million fd!
