After you finish your league draft, it's time to relax and have fun. Play along with us, too, in our free, easy thank-you game for Fantasy Index subscribers. Each week, choose 2 QBs, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 2 TEs and 2 defenses. To make the game more interesting, we will remove several top players from the player pool each week.

Each week's high score (PPR scoring) will win a $25 Fantasy Index gift certificate, and the season champ will win a nice prize package. Enter for Week 1 and stay in the hunt for the season championship!

It takes only a couple of minutes to make your picks. The game is low-stress, and surprisingly fun. Play alongside the Fantasy Index crew: Ian Allan, Andy Richardson, Justin Eleff, Michael Murillo and Bruce Taylor -- the gang's all here. We don't make any money running the game. But we enjoy playing it ourselves, so each year we pay our programmers to set it up.

How to play: Sign into your Fantasy Index account and click the blue "Your stuff" button in the top right corner. Then look for the link to Fantasy Index Blackout 2022 on the right side of the page. Click on the tab to acknowledge the 2022 rules, and please! Give your team a name, so your team name doesn't simply appear as "John Q." in the standings. Don't be lame! After you've scrolled down to update your team name, click back on the Week 1 Entry tab and make your picks.

We will begin accepting Week 1 entries August 30.
