With Fantasy Football season approaching, employers are expected to lose $13 billion in productivity due to the popular hobby, according to a Chicago-based consultant company. 

Employees often review players' stats and manage rosters during work hours, reducing the amount of work-related tasks that are accomplished.

Fortunately for employers, this figure is down from $16.5 billion in lost productivity from two years ago.
