Despite what you might think, Fantasy Football is more than just a game. With just over 22 million participants with jobs, Fantasy Football costs more than a friendly buy-in. If every participant spends one hour per week managing their rosters and the average hourly wage in the U.S. is around $19, the time spent moving players on and off the team adds up to $6.5 billion in lost productivity. That’s enough money to pay NFL refs for over three hundred years.
