As action heats up in daily fantasy sports — following a barrage of commercials from DraftKings and FanDuel for NFL season — where do people play?

The following infographic from LSR and leading fantasy sports community RotoGrinders.com provides one answer to that question.

The infographic below breaks down interest in DFS by state. The state with the most interest? Massachusetts, the home of operations for DraftKings.

Not shockingly, the least amount of interest comes in the five states where DraftKings and FanDuel do no operate — Arizona, Montana, Louisiana, Washington and Iowa.

The data was culled from traffic at the DFS community RotoGrinders.com for the past year. Percentages reflect per capita interest in the states.
