For all Friends Mode “Championship” leagues that fill to capacity and run their first contest by Sunday, 10/15/17 at 1:00 PM ET, FanDuel will double the prize payout for the first contest.
A Championship is considered filled when it reaches the selected number of participants. Once a Championship fills and locks, the first Championship contest will be auto-created for the next available Sunday “NFL Main” slate. The first weekly contest prize pool will be double the weekly contest prize pool selected by the commissioner and will be awarded to the participant who finishes in first place in that contest. If multiple participants tie for first in a their first weekly contest, the weekly contest prize will be split amongst them.
The prize pool payout will return to the selected amount after completion of the first weekly contest and for the remainder of the weekly contests in the Championship league.
Keep in mind that:
