Every time the NFL season starts up again the men in our lives become absorbed by their fantasy draft teams. They have to watch every game to see if Marshawn Lynch got the rushing yards in this week’s game to cause Frat Brother #1 to pull ahead of Frat Brother #3. We don’t really understand, and we don’t really care, but we expect it every year.

Well now it’s our turn. Ladies, I give you: “The Bachelor” 2016 Fantasy Draft.

Its perfect. Its what we’ve been waiting for all our lives. It’s finally our turn to say we have to watch the episode on Monday because we have to see how our bracket is doing. And yes, to watch Ben Higgins, aka the best Bachelor ever, find love. Or not find love and come to SMU and marry one of us. Either or, whatever he’s feeling.

Download your bracket here. It’s sure to make Mondays in every sorority house and residential common’s TV lounge much more exciting.

Here’s a run down of our favorite women so far, either because they are great girls and could get the coveted Neil Lane ring, or because they are crazy and we love it. 

Lauren B – The flight attendant from Marina Del Rey, Calif. She’s sweet, she’s cute, she loves love and seems cookie-cutter perfect. Just like Ben. Match made in ABC producer heaven.

Emily and Haley (aka The Professional Twins) – It’s twins….dating the same man. Wouldn’t it be great if he eliminated one and the other made it to hometown dates? Talk about awkward dinner conversations. Whatever happens, I’m going to bet money they will be on “Bachelor in Paradise” next season.

Amanda – The 25-year-old esthetician from Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. She dropped the bomb on Ben that she has two daughters, but since Ben is an angel, he thought it was amazing and they ended up making barrettes for the girls.

Becca – This is her second season on “The Bachelor,” as she was the runner up on Chris’s season. The virgin contestant says she’s waiting until marriage and has never had a serious boyfriend. Either she wants to be “The Bachelorette” really badly (who wouldn’t) or she thinks this is the only way people date. She needs Tinder or Christian Mingle in her life.

Let us know how your bracket is doing and your predictions for the season on Twitter or Facebook.
