Fantasy Football Tips: How to cheat the NEW system

Dream Team 2016/17 is open for business – so you’re going to want to get some Fantasy Football Tips and cheats.

We’ve got a whole host of new and improved features that you can read about by clicking here.

But if you just want a dose of insider tips then dive right on in…

1 Ever seen the Armenian Messi at work?

Player card-henrikh-mkhitaryan

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£5.0m) is a mighty fine signing for Man United.

The classy playmaker scored 23 goals in all competitions for Borussia Dormund last season including seven in Europe.


He also provided the most assists (15) in the Bundesliga.

Sounds like a Dream Team points machine.

2 Say hello to Liverpool’s new handsome No1

Tranmere Rovers v Liverpool - Pre-Season Friendly

Due to Liverpool’s lengthy cup runs and European exploits, Simon Mignolet (3.5m) ended last season as Dream Team’s top goalkeeper.

But new lad Loris Karius (3.5m) is likely to be the No1 at Anfield.

It may be that one plays in the cups and the other in the league.

Either way 3.5m for a Liverpool keeper represents good value for money.

UPDATE: Karius has since been injured so it looks like it’ll have to be Mignolet for the first couple of months…

3 Would the real world-beater please stand up?


Last season was one to forget for the Belgian sensation.

Expect Chelsea to be revitalised under Antonio Conte.

Eden Hazard (6.5m) showed flashes of his old unplayable form at the end of last season and at Euro 2016.

Defences beware.

4 Jose Mourinho’s new bus driver


If there’s one thing we all know about the Special One’s teams by now, it’s that they are always difficult to beat.

Defensive organisation comes first and Man United shouldn’t concede too many under Mourinho’s tutelage..

New boy Eric Bailly (3.5m) is favourite to partner Chris Smalling (5.5m) at centre-back.

When the bus is parked, there’s no budging it.

5 Variable pricing has changed the game massively


The introduction of variable pricing means it’s more important than ever to recognise the over-achievers as early as possible.

It’s probably worth gambling from the off on a few players who you believe will have their price increased due to hot form.

The whole season can be won and lost on these gambles.

Just ask those who had Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy in their teams last season from the get-go.

How about these potential stars:

  • Callum Wilson (3.0m) — scored regular goals before injury hit last season
  • Divock Origi (3.0m) — May not get as much game time as other options but has a good conversion rate for Liverpool at the back end of 2015/16.
  • Kelechi Iheanacho (3.0m) — Man City youngster with seemingly limitless potential as a goalscorer. Not a regular starter but boy the kid can play

Standby for more hot tips as pre-season unfolds and more transfers are made.
