We are looking ahead to the 2020 NFL season, even though it will be unlike anything we've ever seen.

Your safety. This year's issue of Fantasy Football index magazine will include thoughts on getting your league off to a safe, fun start:

  • How to keep your in-person draft safe
  • Tips for online drafts and auctions
  • What to do if the NFL schedule is changed
  • Who wins your league if the season ends early?
  • Dynasty leagues: Thinking ahead for 2021

I'm a newsletter subscriber. What happens if the season is interrupted? If the start of the season is delayed, then we will continue publishing our paid preseason Fantasy Index Cheat Sheet Update newsletters until the season begins, and we will continue sending those at no additional charge to people who have purchased the full preseason subscription or the SuperFanatic newsletter package.

What if the NFL season is interrupted or shut down? If NFL operations are temporarily shut down during the season, then we may choose to temporarily suspend paid newsletter subscriptions, resuming delivery when league activities (i.e. practices and games) resume.

If the NFL season terminates before teams have played 12 games, then we will provide subscribers with credit to be used in the future. We chose this number after consulting with industry peers. The NFL has built its 2020 schedule in such a way as to accommodate delays of two or four weeks at the beginning of the season. If the season terminates before teams have played 12 games, then we will issue gift certificates for an amount proportional to the unfulfilled portion of the subscription. As an example, imagine that our publication schedule promises that a SuperFanatic subscription will include 65 issues for the season, but the NFL cancels the remainder of the season when the subscriber has received 31 issues. In such a case, we would issue a Fantasy Index gift certificate for 34/65ths of the $75 purchase price.

After Week 13 of the NFL season begins, Fantasy Index will consider that a complete season from a subscription standpoint -- which is to say, if the NFL cancels the remainder of the season in Week 13 or later, we call that a full fantasy season and we won't issue credit to subscribers for the following year.

Our Terms and Conditions allow us some leeway to use our common sense about decisions. As a make-believe example, imagine that all teams play a full 16-game season except the three California teams (pretend the governor of California shuts down the state and few games can't be made up.) Our Terms And Conditions allow us to use our reasonable judgment; in this hypothetical case, we would choose to call it a full season even if the California teams played fewer than 12 games.

Basically, we're asking you to trust us to be fair, and to understand that this has the potential to be a strange year for all of us. This is Fantasy Index's 34th NFL season. We are playing the long game. We aren't looking to hustle you. We want you to be happy and come back next year with a smile on your face.
