There was a time when I was perfectly content with my weekly 49ers fix. Three hours on Sunday, in and out, then I move on with my life.
This year however, intuitive visual analytics have morphed my steady but limited NFL ritual into a daily, interactive affair, complete with continuous injury status updates, real-time score tracking, and visually inviting dashboards.
The result is a seamless system that makes fantasy football much too engaging and enjoyable for my own health. The equally intuitive mobile device experience is the nail in the coffin; slipping my virtual dependence into my pocket and, inevitably, putting it in the palm of my hand. Literally.
