Over the last eight years FFToday has given away thousands of dollars in our exclusive Draft Buddy Survivor Contest. Last year we crowned kafonso as the last player standing in our survivor contest. This year the same contest is back again. Take your shot at $2500!

 Here's How It Works... 
  • Starting Week 1 of the NFL season pick 1 team to win its game
  • If the team you picked wins, then you advance
  • If your team you picked loses or ties, you are out of the contest
  • You cannot pick the same team twice
  • Last person still standing - our survivor - is the Champ!
  • Deadline To Join: Sunday kickoff of Week 1, September 7th at 1:00 pm Eastern.

Rules
  1. Beginning Week 1 of the NFL season, pick one team that will win its game straight up (no point spreads).

  2. If the team you picked wins, you survive to the next week to pick another team to win. If the team you picked loses or ties, you are eliminated from the contest.

  3. You cannot pick the same team twice during the NFL regular season.

  4. The last person in the contest still alive after all others have been eliminated, our Survivor, is the winner.

  5. If necessary, the contest will run the entire NFL regular season and through the NFL playoffs from Wild-Card Weekend to the Super Bowl. If the contest extends into the NFL playoffs, then the remaining contestants can pick a team they selected during the regular season, but, the same team cannot be picked twice during the NFL playoffs.

  6. The contest will continue as long as there are entries still alive or until the contest's final week, after the Super Bowl, whichever comes first.

  7. Weekly Pick Deadline: Each week of the NFL season the final deadline for making your pick is kickoff of the first game on Sunday. The exact time is usually 1:00 pm Eastern. This deadline applies to all remaining games for the week, including late Sunday and Monday night games.

    In weeks with early games scheduled for a Thursday, these games can be selected but picks must be submitted before kickoff of the first game on that day.

    No picks for any games can be submitted once games have started for the day. The system will lock out all submissions until it is reset after the game and pick results have been updated.

    These deadlines will be strictly enforced! There will be no exceptions for picks not being submitted on time.
Important Points

No Default Pick

No default picks are assigned in this contest for failing to submit picks prior to the weekly deadline. In the event of an active entry not submitting the required picks on time, then the entry is out of the contest.

Alternate Pick Submission

If you are having difficulty submitting your pick online, then send the pick by email to commish@fftoday.com. Make sure to clearly state your username, week of the contest and pick. The email must be received time stamped prior to the deadline and from the email account associated with your username. We take no responsibility for email being delayed past the deadline or not being delivered. Everyone should use the online system to make their picks and only send an email in the case of an emergency.

Tie Breaker

If the contest extends into the playoffs, and since it is possible to run out of available teams to select, the following tie breakers exist:

  • A contestant that survives a playoff week but does not have any teams left to pick from is deemed to have survived further than a contestant that does not survive that last playoff week.


  • A contestant who picks a team but loses in a playoff week is deemed to have survived further than a contestant that had no teams to pick from at the start of that playoff week.


  • Multiple Winners

    If more than one person is still alive at the end of the contest, then the prize is divided equally amongst the winners.

    Restricted States

    Residents of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana and Vermont, plus Quebec, are restricted from entering the contest due to legal restrictions in these jurisdictions

    Taxes

    All taxes associated with the receipt or uses of any prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. A 30% U.S. income tax withholding will be applied to any non-U.S. prize winners. No winnings will be released until sufficient documentation is received from the winner.
