Hi there fantasy friends! Hope everyone is excited to get Bachelor Fantasy Leagues for Peter started. I was debating continuing to track points this year as it is a bit of a time suck, but I got some emails from you guys asking so we’re a GO for Peter’s season. But if you’ve been utilizing this site for your fantasy league, please leave a comment below or shoot me a quick note at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know, because I really have no idea how many leagues I’m helping (promise I won’t add you to a mailing list or contact you).
As with last season, I’ll have points for the Monday episode posted by Friday. Apologies as I know this is a long turn around but this is a one woman operation and I try to have an actual social life sometimes 🙂
For the first few weeks where there are several contestants in the mix, I’ll post total points by contestant in the text of the post, a screenshot of the excel sheet showing detailed points by category, and an excel sheet with all the detail that you may download if you’d like. Once the number of contestants is whittled down, I’ll post detailed points by category in the text of the post also.
There have been reports that this season they will show the first one on one and group dates during the first episode. Typically I don’t score episode one because I recommend drafting after the night one eliminations have been made. However, this season if there are dates shown during the first episode, I will score those dates and assign points for episode one based on anything that occurs following the first rose ceremony. The scoring template has been updated accordingly.
This new format could throw a wrench in the practice of drafting between weeks one and two. So if you continue to draft following episode one, keep in mind more information will be available than usual due to the dates being shown during the premiere. I highly doubt they’ll have time to fit two rose ceremonies in the first episode, so there should still be plenty of contestants for the draft after the premiere. If your league decides to draft prior to the premiere, I suggest adding 25 points to any contestant who receives a rose during the first rose ceremony.
Check out the Scoring page for a few new points categories for this year.

Feel free to shoot me a note with any questions or feedback. I’m really excited for Peter’s season- I think ABC picked a good one this time! Happy Drafting
