Fantasy football has done nothing but continue to grow over the years. Over the last two decades the numbers are staggering, in 1988 around five-hundred thousand people were playing fantasy sports to an estimated 57.4 million people playing this year in the United States and Canada. Fantasy football is a way to interact with people over a common topic while also having some fun with it. Jeremy Sheehy, UTA junior, says he keeps in touch with buddies from high school who are all in a fantasy football league together. Fantasy football is a virtual way to have some stake in the weekly NFL match ups and how certain players perform.
