According to a Forbes August 20, 2013 article citing statistics from The Fantasy Sports Trade Association, they estimate that 32 million Americans spend $467 per person or about $15 billion (USD) in total playing fantasy sports.
Roughly, $11 billion (USD) flows toward football alone. These figures don't count ad revenue for fantasy hosting sites. The NFL's annual revenue falls just under $10 billion currently. So the "derivative" market has grown larger than the foundational market.
