The National Football League season is in its second week and college football is well under way. And, with apologies to other sports and even fans of reality shows like "The Bachelor," this is the time of year when interest in fantasy sports intensifies.

Arizona is one of five states in the country where, if you play in a national online fantasy sports league, you can’t legally claim your prize.
