We’ve said goodbye to the Premier League and fantasy football for another season.
But don’t despair, because there’s still the big one in Russia to look forward to this summer – as well as the Dream Team World Cup game.
If you fancy a go at that, then make sure you pre-register ahead of the official launch on June 1.

In the mean time, we’ve been getting our fantasy football fix in other ways and today we’re looking back at some of the best signings that graced the Premier League last summer.
Using our Dream Team metrics and WhoScored’s rating system, we’ve established the top five summer-movers who certainly justified their transfer fee – on fantasy football, at least.
5 Alexandre Lacazette – 153 points
Arsenal fans will probably be feeling a little disappointed by their big summer signing, but the truth is he had a reasonably solid first season.
Let’s face it, he was never going to replicate his Ligue 1 brilliance in his first year in England – finishing up with 14 goals in the Premier League, compared to the 28 he notched for Lyon the season before.
Still, an end of season flourish saw him net eight goals in all competitions from the beginning of April, and he’ll be keen to carry that form into next season.
4 Antonio Rudiger – 167 points
We weren’t really expecting much from little Rudiger at the end of last summer.
But he proved us all very wrong by firmly establishing himself in Chelsea’s starting eleven over the course of this campaign, pipping the likes of David Luiz and Gary Cahill in the Blues pecking order.
We’re hoping for more of the same in 2018/2019.
3 Kyle Walker – 171 points
It was smiles all round, really.
Last summer, Walker got the move he wanted to Man City and won the Premier League title, while Spurs got a decent pay out for a player they could easily replace (with Kieran Trippier waiting in the wings).
And he was a decent shout for your Dream Team as well, finishing up as one of the best points-scoring defenders on the game.
2 Romelu Lukaku – 254 points
Despite controversially ruling himself out of the FA Cup final last weekend, it’s been a relatively positive first season for Lukaku at Man United.
The towering Belgian bagged 27 goals in 50 appearances since his £75million move from Everton last summer, and remained the most-picked player on Dream Team through the season.
Let’s just hope he doesn’t enjoy himself too much at the World Cup this summer, especially against England.
1 Mohamed Salah – 412 points
We can’t think of many signings better than this guy EVER.
The Egyptian King has been the talisman of Liverpool’s outstanding campaign, notching 32 goals in 36 league appearances to steal the Golden Boot away from Harry Kane and helping the Reds to the Champions League final.
Undoubtedly the best player you could have on fantasy football this year, we want more of the same next season please, Mo.
