Fantasy Football: These are all the ways Dream Team has changed for the better this season

ICYMI: The Premier League is back, and therefore so is Fantasy Football.

And that is a Very Good Thing.

Even for those of us who picked two Arsenal defenders and David Ospina.

Obviously Dream Team is the only game you need to play.

Especially given the myriad ways we’ve improved it this season.

DREAM TEAM COMEDY: The different types of Fantasy Football Manager

1 Game weeks are back to normal

Unlike last term game weeks will run from Friday to Thursday again, meaning if you want to give your side a quick reshuffle before the weekend’s games you will be able to do just that.

Last term players were locked ahead of the weekend if they’d competed in Europe or cup games that week. This time, no such problem.

2 It’s absolutely free

It costs zilch. Zip. Nothing. Nada. And you can win a share of £750,000 – more than on any other Fantasy Football games. You know who you are.

3 The app is, quite frankly, s**t hot

The Match Centre in particular is a thing of real beauty, with integrated match highlights, all the latest WhoScored stats and Dream Team points updates.

Not forgetting our unrivalled and hilarious news centre bringing you the very best in banter from the Premier League and beyond of course.

Which fantasy football team names are the most popular?

Team names are as vital as picking the side itself in modern day fantasy football, with the punnier and most original the better.

So whether it’s Giroud Sandstorm, Neville Wears Prada or Teenage Mutant Ninja Skrtel, check out our foolproof list to help you decide.

Who are the most picked players so far in fantasy football?

New Manchester United hitman Romelu Lukaku has blown away the rest of the field so far this season, having been selected by nearly 60% of managers and a good 12% ahead of his nearest challenger.

He forms a tasty looking attacking trio with Arsenal’s club-record signing Alexandre Lacazette – whose mission in life is goals – and Wayne Rooney.

It seems many Dream Team managers feel the ex-England captain’s return to boyhood club Everton could rejuvenate his career and have backed him to deliver the goods.

But how does the rest of the most-picked team look?

What else do I need to know?

Remember Dream Team stands above it’s competitors because it factors in every single competition in the season – not just the Premier League.

That means you’ll have to have your wits about you in the League Cup, FA Cup, Champions League and Europa League too when selecting your players.

Head to Head leagues and Mini Leagues will also be back so you can beat your mates and earn those all important bragging rights.
