Imagine winning your fantasy football league championship and the $300,000 prize that came with it — and a year later you’re still waiting to be paid in full.

Imagine expecting $266,000 for your fantasy sports expertise and discovering that you probably will never collect.

In 2010 the World Championship Of Fantasy Football (WCOFF), one of the premiere organizations in fantasy sports, crumbled. Players who had paid thousands of dollars in entrance fees are wondering what happened to that money.

On Sunday at 10 a.m. ET on ESPN2, Outside The Lines presents a feature about WCOFF, which seemingly had been thriving for nearly a decade.

On this edition of Front & Center, reporter T.J. Quinn (pictured right) talks about what prompted the OTL investigation.

He talks about his interviews with WCOFF’s largest remaining unpaid winners Chad Schroeder and Tony Windis.

Quinn also reflects on the news that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson acknowledges that his return from injury was prompted — in part — by his wish to appease fantasy league fans.

See Peterson’s interview with SportsCenter‘s John Buccigross in the video below.
