    Anyone know anything about Fantasy sports ?

    Apparently lots of people make money at fantasy sports especially during NFL season in the USA.

    Saw an article on TV the other day about a guy in Australia
    who has Quit his job to run a Fantasy sports team.. Quit his job??

    Also see advertising on TV about NRL Fantasy and Shaun Johnson's name is always prominent
    on the fantasy sport team.

    How does one play or get involved..??? links to Fantasy games

    We have a forum supercoach comp here mate. Obviously too late to join now, but we have two comps running, maybe one for nrlfantasy as well. In the past we have had nearlynrl comps running.

    Fantasy Sports is huge in USA. In 2013, 15 million americans spent an average of just a tad under $500 each on fantasy sports. Take this for example. NFL has a revenue of 10 billion, yet 11 billion flowed through to NFL related fantasy sports competitions in 2013. Its only getting bigger and bigger.

    I remember fanduel.com spent up huge to be on Floyd Mayweather's trunks during the end of his career.

    Theres been quite a few new entrants into the market in Australia as they try to capitalise on it. Moneyball is another. To be honest, id be very suprised if anyone quits their job in Australia/NZ to just do fantasy sports just in the Australasian market. Money is not there - yet anyway. Max you can win on supercoach is 5k a week if you get the highest score for the week - and most people will be able to tell you that is extremely hard, and you have to get very lucky. I think the overall winner gets a new car. Also dont expect to be winning anything the first couple of years you play.
