As we’ve discussed once before on The Show, I play fantasy football. It’s a small league, with zero money at stake.

Frankly, I’ve found over the years the less involved I am with my team, the higher in the standings I tend to finish. But there are a lot of people much more invested than I.

Mary Ingram-Waters studies the impact of fantasy sports on players’ lives. She’s an Honors Faculty Fellow at Barrett, the Honors College at Arizona State University.
