Kyle Bennett Video Essay Proposal

Thesis Statement- The NFL has seen a drop in it’s television rating in 2016. There are numerous factors but how much is contributed to the fanbase of America’s most popular sport being a fantasy?

The instant gratification and potential earning of money in Fantasy Football and Daily Fantasy Football has changed how fans follow the games from a team standpoint and now seem to only focus on players. Has this been an issue with how game ratings have fallen due to the short attention spans we as humans have and only having interest in select players where the NFL RedZone Channel is better suited for a Fantasy Football player.

-How many app downloads for fantasy football are there?
-Is this a true effect on the ratings drop of the actual game of football?
-Video would include footage from television shows that focus on fantasy football as well as screen grabs from websites such as Draft Kings and Fan Duel
