Online gaming not just fantasy

The appeal and participation of fantasy sports gaming stands at an all-time high. Fans have been drafting and dealing real-life pro players like Tom Brady and Alex Rodriguez and Kobe Bryant to their "their" teams for decades, matching them in games against friends and strangers in games of pure fantasy.

But where would Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford and his 3,121 passing yards and 36 touchdowns of 2007 place him on a draft board? Or would you prefer the dual-threat appeal of Oklahoma State's Zac Robinson, who passed for 23 touchdowns and ran for nine more a year ago?

Soon fantasy players will make such calls, with CBS Sports set to take a controversial first step in using the names and likenesses of college athletes in its online games.

The story is too old to be commented.
