Have a meeting that you're going to be stuck in for a lengthy amount of time? Print out a bunch of paperwork and use it as a cover to be on your phone to check up on your fantasy football team.

Most of the time at the job, you're in a fantasy football league with a co-worker. Obviously don't start screaming across the room about possible trades or how you lost a game due to a single fantasy point. Instead, make up code words to use so you can talk about fantasy football all you want without your manager ever knowing.

Now your days will go by faster since you're gathering up great info for future success without anyone ever knowing.

For the most part, most jobs have a majority of people who actually love football. If you can get the majority to do an office pool that also includes some of the higher-ups, everyone can enjoy a great season and not worry about getting into too much trouble. Don't make it too obvious, but if you do get caught by your manager and he is also a part of the fantasy football league, you should be given a pass as long as you don't abuse it!
