Is reading fantasy books a productive hobbie? I'm 19 and I want to start reading because it has a lot of benefits?

I think of knitting or making bird houses as a productive hobby. But certainly reading is valuable in itself, and I encourage everyone to read.

Someone who wants to start reading because "it has a lot of benefits" shouldn't as they're obviously a total loonie-bin who wouldn't enjoy the experience.

Reading non-fiction has more benefits than reading fiction, but reading fiction has a few good ones. It stimulates your imagination. Reading "hobby" several times will teach you how to spell the word, as well as its use in a sentence. Some people say that reading fantasy teaches how to live in the real world because it is for entertainment : non-threatening and non-preachy.

Fantasy reading can maintain your speed reading rate, but it is not exactly "productive" more of an entertaining hobby,

No it is not. It has limited financial prospects.

You don't have a hobby to be productive. Choose a hobby that you enjoy. No other reason needed.
