    Fantasy Football Costs Employers $6.5B Yearly In Wasted Time: Study

    There's no denying that fantasy football has evolved into a huge industry over the past few years. But just how huge is it? A new study asserts that American employers are losing as much as $6.5 billion each year to fantasy football.

    Chicago outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas recently released a study calculating exactly how much money employers lose every year due to their employees procrastination and managing their fantasy football rosters. Their number? $6.5 billion.


    In fantasy football, players (usually called owners) draft NFL players into their fictional teams and compete against each other throughout the NFL season. The statistics-based game boosts NFL ratings tremendously and brings in more than $1 billion per year. Popular sports sites such as ESPN often offer their own fantasy football leagues.

    I know some guys get totally obsessed. Where I used to work, our director of student financial aid spent the entire football season farting around with his FF team. It was no secret and why he wasn't fired is beyond me.
