How much time do Americans spend managing their fantasy football teams at work?
Two hours per day, according to a new study by a Chicago firm, which pencils out to approximately $13 billion per year in wasted wages over a 15-week fantasy football season.
"One cannot entirely dismiss widespread phenomenon such as fantasy football or deny that it has some impact on workplace productivity," said the firm’s CEO. “Undoubtedly there are managers, supervisors and IT professionals who will attest to a slowdown in output from certain workers around this time of year."
But like the Great Peyton and his brother Eli rapped earlier this week: "If you love football, then you love fantasy!"
