Thought Leadership

Welcome to Fantazzle Fantasy Sports thought leadership section. With the explosion of fantasy football’s popularity and the continuing rise in popularity of fantasy baseball and other fantasy sports games, Fantazzle understands that the fantasy sports industry has fast become a complex industry with many different product offerings from cutting edge content to specialized weekly fantasy games.


The entire fantasy sports industry often gets lumped together under one roof by the media and as such Fantazzle aims to be a resource that all the divergent industries and interests within the fantasy community turn to for guidance. We aim to build an entire suite of thought leadership papers spanning the entire spectrum of the fantasy sports industry that will support the industry from the inside out, and will inform the media and the public about fantasy sports gaming in the 21st century.

You can read a summary of Fantasy Football Is Not a Workplace Distraction below.


Fantasy Football has become a cultural phenomenon in the last decade, but the rise of fantasy football has been accompanied by questions concerning its effects on the workplace, the home, society at large and the economy.

During the last few years numerous research articles have all attempted to quantify the economic effects–both positive and negative–of fantasy football. Various reports have estimated that fantasy football is a boon to the U.S. economy of more than $4 billion. But conflicting reports have suggested that the distraction it causes in the workplace could cost businesses and the economy more than $10.5 billion annually. So which is the truth?

Fantazzle, through its commitment to thought leadership in the fantasy sports industry, has collected all the contradictory and competing information put forth by journalists, researchers and consulting firms over the last five years to perform a comprehensive review of the veracity of the conflicting reports. Fantazzle made every effort to definitively conclude whether or not fantasy football actually constitutes a distraction in the workplace and a drag on the U.S. economy. After combining economic statistics with numerous surveys and even some neuroscientific research, Fantazzle was able to conclude that fantasy football has never been a drag on workplace productivity nor a drag on the economy and, in fact, might directly assist both firms and the economy.

Due to the assembled facts, Fantazzle stands by its concluding recommendation that if a company is in search of greater productivity then management should strive to foster a trusting environment free of Big Brother-like overseers. Our white paper concludes that company-wide bans on fantasy football sites should be discouraged and that companies should trust company managers to use discretionary judgment as to why any individual worker’s productivity has suffered. But more than that, continuing research is beginning to show that fantasy football encourages office camaraderie which means that fantasy football should be considered as a viable supplement or replacement to other human resources-themed team-building activities.

Firms that follow these guidelines are likely to experience an uptick in employee productivity, while those that continue to put stock in earlier, false reports claiming fantasy football is a drag on employee productivity will likely cost themselves the very productivity they’re trying to save.

The Perfect Pick’em Promotion – How to Play

Playing The Perfect Pick’em Game is the same as playing any Pick’em fantasy game. You select your fantasy team by selecting a player from each matchup that you believe will score more fantasy points than the other player (example – Roy Halladay vs. Jamie Moyer). Your final roster will consist of one player from every matchup created (there are usually around 12 matchups). If you choose the right player from every matchup, you have created a Perfect Pick’em and are eligible to win part of the $1,000 in bonus cash (there are four $250 individual prizes throughout the contest). Make sure you stay up to date through email and the Fantazzle Fantasy Sports blog for any additions to the promotion.


The Perfect Pick’em Promotion Prizes

The Perfect Pick’em Promotion is an ongoing promotion where the following fantasy sports are eligible – Fantasy Golf, Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Racing, Fantasy Basketball and Fantasy Football. If we decide to include The Perfect Pick’em Promotion for any other sports or special game types, it will be noted. The Fantazzle Fantasy Sports Blog will be the place with the best fantasy promo information for any additions or modifications for promos. $1,000 in cash prizes will be awarded where the first four people who achieve The Perfect Pick’em (see FAQ below) are awarded $250 each in bonus cash. If the last $250 prize is awarded on a day where there are multiple entries that achieve The Perfect Pick’em then prizes will be split.


The Perfect Pick’em Promotion FAQ

The Perfect Pick’em Promotion is meant to award the players who not only play our pick’em games but are the best of the best when it comes to the pick’em game type. Please make sure that you follow these guidelines and requirements:

  • In order to win a Perfect Pick’em bonus you must play a Pick’em game with an entry fee of $5.50 or higher.
  • You must get all selections correct; if a matchup ends in a tie, the promo will be voided (of course winners still receive cash prizes if they win their league).
  • If there are two or more matchups with a player that has been scratched, injured or does not play (benched for any reason), the promo is voided (again, winners still receive cash prizes if they win).
  • You must have made a deposit on Fantazzle to be eligible. You may enter with FanStock or bonus cash and still be eligible as long as a past deposit was made.
  • There will be four prizes awarded in $250 increments. If there is a tie, prizes will be split up accordingly. The promo could end in a week or in a year. It all depends on when there are four qualified entries who have a Perfect Pick’em team.
  • All prizes are awarded in FanStock and are subject to our promotional rules and requirements.
  • Only one prize can be won per person in each individual game; If you play more than one entry only one will be awarded as a Perfect Pick’em within that game.

Spreading the Word

Go to your account page and go to the “Refer Friend” tab to start referring friends. We make it as easy as possible and there are several automated tools you can use to refer your friends.


Unique URL

It all starts with your unique URL. Every user has their own link that you use to refer friends. Go to your Account -> Refer Friends page and you will find your link.


You can copy and paste this link and use it any way you would like. If someone clicks this link and creates an account, you receive FanStock.


Twitter and Facebook

On your ‘Refer Friends’ page, you will see a button for Facebook and Twitter like this:


By clicking these links, it brings up a new browser window that has a message all ready to go for you to send out. Just click submit and it will update your account. You can modify the message if you’d like, but make sure that your unique URL is not modified. You will need that to receive credit for your friend. If you don’t have a Twitter or Facebook account…well you can create one or use our other tools if it ain’t your thing.


Plaxo Tool

Plaxo allows you to login to your email provider and select contacts you would like to send your unique URL to.


You can send to all your contacts or only the ones you want. Again, this is automated so we have a message all ready to go. Feel free to modify as you see fit.


Email Tool

If Plaxo does not have your email provider or you prefer to manually enter email addresses, you can use this handy dandy tool:


Enter email addresses of your friends and it will send an email with your unique URL.



It doesn’t get much easier than this. We make it as easy as possible for you to get your friends to Fantazzle. To show our appreciation for helping us build our site, we reward you and your friends with FanStock so you can play free games. Fantazzle thanks you for helping us grow.

Please note:

  • You are only allowed 2 referrals per household. Additional household members will not be eligible to earn FanStock.

  • There are NO LIMITS to the amount of friends you refer (please note specific promotion limits if applicable).
  • Your friend referral MUST activate their email before you are able to use your FanStock. The FanStock will appear in your account, but you will not be able to use shares that are from referrals of friends that have not confirmed their email.
  • You can confirm your email by going into your account and clicking the activate email button (this is in your
    Account —> Overview, Email, and My Promos tabs). An email will be sent to you with a link that you need to click to verify the email.

Spending FanStock

Once you start earning shares, you can spend them in the following ways:


  • 5,000 shares = $5 entry fee in any of our games.
  • 10,000 shares = $10 entry fee
  • 20,000 shares = $20 entry fee

Fantazzle will create different opportunities in the future to earn even more shares!

Register for a game like normal, but select the ‘Use FanStock’ box to enter the game for free. The system will deduct FanStock instead of cash.


Voting Shares

Fantazzle will hold shareholder votes several times a year. When we hold votes, you can use your Lifetime FanStock shares to share your opinion. The more shares you have, the more votes you have! The amount of LIFETIME shares will be the amount of votes we count for your opinion. Just like a real stockholder’s meeting. If you spend your FanStock on games, don’t worry, your Lifetime FanStock shares will never decrease.



Here are some additional details for FanStock:

  • FanStock cannot be withdrawn and can only be used on the website.
  • When you use FanStock for your entry fee, you receive cash prizes if you win to play in future games.
  • Your current FanStock balance, if unused, will expire one year and one month from the day you received the shares. This is done in order to decrease the number of shares outstanding and not being used. We believe giving you over one year to use your shares is reasonable.
  • During voting, any unused shares will not be counted towards the vote and only those who used their shares will count.
  • When a vote is complete, Fantazzle will release the results to the public and show the percentage that the vote passed by.
  • FanStock cannot be transferred to other members and other members cannot give proxy rights to other members for their vote.
  • If you withdraw prior to earning your FanStock promotion, the promotion and FanStock is forfeited (if FanStock was already released and used, we will debit accordingly prior to a withdraw)
  • Deposit bonuses have a rollover requirement that must be met before the FanStock is released. You can see this info in your Account – Cashier section

If you have any additional questions on FanStock, don’t hesitate to send us an email.
