There's big money in fantasy sports. Last year, alone, people paid $1.7 billion to play in fantasy leagues. With all that money sloshing around, a fantasy economy has sprung up, giving rise to real businesses. Here are four of them.
- Insurance - against the star player on your fantasy team getting injured.
- Banking - to facilitate participation in multiple fantasy leagues.
- Dispute Resolution - because not all fantasy contingencies are foreseen.
- Extreme gaming - because once a week football games are not enough for your fantasy team.
