Fantasy football is big business.
With an estimated $1 billion in annual revenue, it's no surprise that more and more events are geared toward its participants.
Two of the all-time great Bills are involved with one such venture, as Jim Kelly and Bruce Smith will be in Atlantic City on Aug. 18 and 19 for the inaugural Fantasy Football Festival.
As many as 25,000 people are expected at the event at the Atlantic City Convention Center. Kelly and Smith will be joined by current Philadelphia Eagles Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy, along with former greats like Phil Simms, Lawrence Taylor, Joe Theismann, Ottis Anderson, Keith Byars and Chris Doleman.
Those in attendance can conduct their fantasy drafts live. Other events scheduled include: athlete and celebrity appearances, video game tournaments and free-play, interactive athletic competitions, sports memorabilia, a tailgate party and beer tasting.
