What’s the easiest way to play fantasy football? Dream Team Weekender, of course.
Dream Team is the only place where you can play three game in the 2019/20 campaign; Season, Weekender and Draft.
So let’s get stuck into one of those joyous formats.
Why you should play the best short form fantasy football game around
For those of you unfamiliar with Dream Team Weekender, it’s a super duper easy way to play fantasy football with a blank slate every weekend.
Are you one of those people who loses faith in their Season teams quite quickly? What can you do when your mini-league leader already has an unassailable lead by late September?
That’s where Weekender comes in.
Weekender restarts every weekend, so everyone starts on the same page. No giant gaps to close and no transfers to pull your hair out over either.
How does Dream Team Weekender work?
Weekender is really very simple.
Pick seven players from any of the Saturday and Sunday Premier League games with no budget limitations and hey presto, you’ve got your team.
It’s completely free to enter every week and there’ll be at least £1k on offer for the overall winner each weekend. Yummy.
Weekender mini-leagues, like the normal Season game, are also easy to set up so you can compete against your mates across the entire season.
How do prize allocations work?
That £1k winning prize is all yours if you win Weekender outright that weekend.
If the winning amount is a tie the jackpot is split evenly between however many people are tied at the top.
It’s rare, but last season we had a three-way share of the prizepot one weekend.
How does the points scoring work?
We’ve got some good news for you – it works exactly the same way as the Season game.
That’s five points for a goal, two for an assist, five for a clean sheet, two points for a 7+ rating and five for that precious Star Man award.
Then you lose a point for two goals conceded, another lose point for every goal after two goals, another lost point for a yellow card and three lost points for a red card.
A penalty taker loses three points if he misses, while a goalkeeper gains three points if he saves one.
