Default Insurance policy for your fantasy team? LOL!

This NFL insurance policy is no fantasy

By Alex Prewitt, USA TODAY

To most die-hard fantasy football drafters, insurance comes in handcuffing studs with low-round selections.

Fantasy Sports Insurance (FSI), underwritten by Lloyd's of London, is the first site offering fantasy owners a policy that recoups all costs should a key player suffer a season changing injury.

Long Island insurance brokers Anthony Giaccone and Henry Olszewski founded FSI after Tom Brady suffered a season-ending knee injury in 2008, effectively ruining Olszewki's season.

This is so stupid ... would you or anyone you know actually pay for this? I guess I'm just not a serious enough fantasy player...
