Chicago Bears receiver Marquess Wilson caught his first career touchdown late in a blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints on Monday night. It was a great moment for Wilson and his family, but it was an even better moment for one fantasy football owner.

Drew Dinkmeyer, who works as a fantasy sports expert for RotoExperts.com, won $1 million in the DraftKings.com Millionaire Maker after Wilson caught a one-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter.

This is what makes fantasy football so great. It didn't matter to Dinkmeyer that the Bears were down 24-0 when Wilson scored the touchdown. All that matters is that the touchdown catch put the fantasy football owner over the top and earned him a nice check.

Here's a picture of Dinkmeyer's starting lineup:

Although it was Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill, New York Giants wideout Odell Beckham Jr. and Dallas Cowboys Dez Bryant who gave the fantasy football owner some major points, Wilson was the one who changed Dinkmeyer's life.
