Does anyone know how many people play fanatasy football?

Just curious as to how high the number is now.

I did a google search and have seen from as low as 13 million to as high as 19 million. I thought there were more.

I think any stat will be skewed grossly.

First, do you count a yahoo free league as a fantasy player? I don't

Do you consider 1 player playing in multiple leagues as 1 or how many leagues that person plays in.

Stictly speaking Fantasy Football, I'd find it hard to believe that 5% of our population in the US plays fantasy football. It is estimated that 30million watch football.

I'd would guess that 5 million individuals or less are involved in a competitive for money league, and the target market is males 18-35. Not saying women or people outside that age range don't also play.

You guys in the US tend to ignore the rest of the world. Here in Germany I guess we have about 60'000 to 80'000 players and I know guys in the UK, Australia and Italy also playing fantasy football. If you summ up the non-US players I could imagine that you come up with 500'000 to 600'000 players.

:hey:
I agree with the King. I think you need to add about 10 years on to each end of your range and you will be closer to the target market.

I think family leagues defy the all male typical age bracket.

Also, there a lot of women that think they know more than the men around them, even about football.

16 family league 4 female, Ages 27 - 64

Kids league Ages 10 - 14 (my nephews)

Nothing like crushing yo mama in the playoffs and a cry, cry, cry chant phone call.

More importantly, how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?

Hey - your commas are upside down. They should look like this: 500,000 to 600,000. NOT 500'000. And you wonder why we ignore the rest of the world.Edit to add: I know 44 people (in real life, not on-line) that play fantasy football.

:goodposting: about the commas (',)I am in 3 money leagues (24 team' 12 team' 10 team)Taking out common players in the leagues' it,s 41 players just in my 3 leagues. I know many others that play also.I like this new comma thing' it,s kinda cool. Do we change apostrophes too? You do have to re-train yourself how to type though.

on www.fantasy-football.deor on www.footballforum.deOK, the numbers maybe to high but I know at least 20 personally who play and when I calculate up to everyone who joined NFLE games or games of the GFL It will be somewhere about 50'000.

Of all my friends and family and co-workers, I know less than 20 that play. Figure that somewhere in the 1 out of 40 range.

You forgot to mention nfl-talk.net. :goodposting: I still think the number is way to high. 6000 to 8000 sounds more realistic to me, even though the number of players is rising from year to year.
