Fantasy football, March Madness and office productivity
A study says Fantasy football costs U.S. business about $6.5 billion in worker productivity, about five times the amount lost to March Madness.

A study by the firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas says Fantasy football costs U.S. businesses about 6.5 billion per year. The average Fantasy player spends nine hours per week reading or watching something about Fantasy sports, and three hours per week managing his or her team, according to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association.

How much time per week do you spend on the world’s greatest hobby?
