How does Premier League fantasy football work?
Every single season the Premier League gets more intriguing – and playing Dream Team really is the perfect way to enhance your experience of it.
You’ll be assigned a total budget of £5om for each side you pick and you’ll be able pick a maximum of 10 free teams.
The Game Weeks run from Friday to Thursday, effectively meaning the new Game Week starts after the last Europa League games are completed.
You get three transfers a month on the first Friday of every month so using them wisely is essential.
Every player on the game will be assigned a price at the start of the season which will then vary and fluctuate on a weekly basis dependent on their performances.
For example, last season we valued Mo Salah at £4m at the start of the season but the Egyptian King rocketed to over £11m by the end after his stunning goalscoring form.
How does the points system work?
Our trusty friends over at WhoScored are in charge of all the match ratings again this season – and it really is quite simple.
Check out the images below for an overview on how the scoring system works.
What new features are there?
Well after the ridiculous popularity of our new 3-4-3 formation on the Dream Team World Cup game, we’ve decided it simply had to make it its Dream Team Season bow.
The traditional 4-4-2 and 4-3-3 line ups will still be there too, but our new kid on the block promotes goals and assists with more players in attacking positions.
Which players should you pick?
With every Premier League player available for selection you’ve got some decisions to make.
Mo Salah broke records left, right and centre last season and finished top of the Dream Team player rankings with a whopping 412 points.
To put that in perspective, only Cristiano Ronaldo has ever broken the 400-point barrier in a single Dream Team season which truly underlines Salah’s individual brilliance in 17/18.
Harry Kane was hot on his heels, whilst the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Roberto Firmino all posting brilliant individual scores.
Who are the best fantasy football bargains out there?
Fantasy football isn’t all about picking the biggest names in the business.
The £50m Dream Team budget means you need to have an eye for a bargain to ensure you can still pick the guaranteed points scorers.
In recent seasons a number of names have emerged from nowhere to play a big part in the Dream Team season.
Here are the top five fantasy football bargains from last season which may help with your selection process in 2018/19.
What other games can you play?
If the Dream Team Season game is your meat and drink, Dream Team Weekender is the cool new kid on the block.
Weekender is for those of you who would rather dip in and out rather than keep up the momentum all year round.
Instead of picking and updating one team throughout the entire season, Weekender refreshes every single weekend to give you a fresh chance.
Pick seven players from just the Saturday and Sunday fixtures and there’s no budget to worry about.
How much can you win?
There’s a massive £250k up for grabs with the Season game this season, whilst there’ll be at least £5k on the table for Weekender every single weekend.
And that’s it… for now.
Stay tuned over the coming weeks as we release more and more details about the exciting new season and follow our live blog to keep up to date with all the latest news and gossip.
As a little flavour of what Weekender is all about, this Stoke fan won a whopping £20k the same weekend his side were relegated. Bittersweet?
What fantasy football team name will you go for?
Dream Team isn’t simply about racking up the points to beat your mates.
No, one of the most important first steps is choosing a witty team name that everyone will be jealous of.
Neville Wears Prada is a timeless classic and Tika Mo Salah was a the pick of the bunch from last season.
But what will you go for? Here’s an extensive list of the best team names of all time to give you a hand…
Which new signings could become fantasy football favourites?
Despite the drama of the World Cup Premier League clubs have still been busy chopping and changing their squads ahead of next season.
West Ham have been perhaps the busiest side, bringing in the likes of Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko already.
Both could be really interesting Dream Team prospects, whilst we also can’t wait to see what other new boys Naby Keita and Fred can do in new surroundings.
Keita is Liverpool’s marquee signing, but Fabinho’s arrival from Monaco could be another brilliant buy and we’ve profiled the Brazilian maestro.
Fulham’s capture of Jean Michael Seri from under the noses of Barcelona and Chelsea has raised some eyebrows, with the midfielder a definite potential Dream Team favourite too.
