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.

FANTASY FOOTBALL IS NOT A WORKPLACE DISTRACTION
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.
