So naturally, we took the liberty of writing a guide on how to play “Fantasy Bachelorette,” including a ​printable bracket that you can use throughout this season of the reality show.

There are two main ways to play in a fantasy league based around The Bachelorette. The first of which is done through ABC's official website, and it's surprisingly similar to your typical daily fantasy football experience. 

​​Fans will set their lineups by picking whichever Bachelors they think will earn the most fantasy roses, based on that week's categories. The categories can be anything, but they usually involve show staples like, "Who will get a one-on-one date with Clare?" or "Who will say they are 'here for the right reasons?'" These categories will change from week-to-week, and many will likely be unique to that week's episode, so it's important to tailor your lineups accordingly.

This league is also a lot more forgiving than a traditional fantasy league, as your lineups will carry over from week-to-week if you forget to set them. But updating it is still important because you cannot earn points from a Bachelor that has already been sent home.

The other way to play in a Bachelorette fantasy league mirrors a more traditional season-long fantasy football experience. Fans will get to watch the two-hour premiere Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST, and then pick their teams from the pool of Bachelors. The brackets lock before the second episode premieres, and you can print out our Bachelorette fantasy league bracket​ ​here.

​In this simplified version of a fantasy league, you must essentially guess how long you think each contestant will remain in the game. You don't have to set a lineup after selecting your team, as you'll be stuck with the Bachelors you picked at the beginning of the season. This a great alternative for fans who don't want to spend too much time strategizing.

​You'll receive points each week for every Bachelor that you've correctly predicted will make it to a given ceremony. Your weekly score is then calculated by your number of advancing Bachelors, multiplied by the ceremony number. For example, if you had 12 Bachelors in ceremony two, you receive 24 points. If you have 11 Bachelors in ceremony three, you receive 33 points.

All in all, joining a Bachelorette fantasy league is the perfect way for fantasy fans to get their fix outside of sports. Just make sure you're playing "for the right reasons."
