For what it's worth, all the numbers I've seen show football in the lead in terms of pure number of people playing. Not sure how those stats were compiled, though; I've also seen basketball practically neck and neck with baseball, so bracket-type games may have been included.

I agree with Arlo...I think a lot of people would be intimidated by the sheer amount of players that are involved with Fantasy Baseball that they would be turned off by it. Of course, some Fantasy Football leagues include actual defensive players, which I think is excessive to be worrying about. I had a hard enough time ranking 150 players last year in Fantasy Football!

Every article I've seen about it has football in the lead as to how many people play fantasy.

It should be baseball though. :-)

Defensive players on fantasy football teams are really cool. And it's not that hard ranking some of those.
