1 The prize pot is a massive £750k
That’s a life-changing amount of money and it could be yours just by doing what you love more than anything – watching and deconstructing football.
2 It’s completely free to play this season
In previous years the massive Dream Team jackpot was only available to those who paid to play.
This year that’s changed, meaning every game player has the opportunity to pocket the money for absolutely nothing.
3 Every single game involving a Premier League team matters
The official Premier League fantasy football game is good, but does it incorporate those equally important European and domestic cup games too? No.
That’s where we’re better, with Champions League, Europa League, League Cup and FA Cup matches all factored into our scoring system.
This means you don’t have to wait for Premier League fixtures to come round and have to stay on red alert 24/7.
4 European competitions come to fantasy football
While Champions League and Europa League matches are included in the traditional Dream Team Season game, Dream Team Europe will return at the beginning of 2018 too.
That means you’ll get the chance to pick the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and, er, Memphis Depay should you want to.
5 Dream Team Weekender offers something very different
If the longevity of the marathon that is the season game isn’t for you, then Dream Team Weekender might be right up your street.
Each weekend the game refreshes, allowing you to pick seven players purely from that Game Week’s fixtures, with some tidy prize pots on offer again too.
6 Pick all the best new players
Premier League clubs are being linked with the best players on the planet this summer.
We’ve already seen the arrivals of the likes of Bernardo Silva and Mohamed Salah while Alexandre Lacazette seems close to completion too.
What will Lacazette offer on Dream Team?
All the biggest and best new signings will be available for selection.
7 Compete against your mates for bragging rights
Fantasy football is ultimately all about strolling into your office on Monday morning with that beaming look on your face knowing you’re the king.
Dream Team’s mini-leagues allow you to set up exclusive divisions just for you and your mates to see who really is the fantasy football expert.
So when can I start?
There’s an easy answer to that – NOW.
That gives you an awfully long time to monitor the transfer market and choose your team accordingly, with Silva the first major coup of the summer after his £43m move to Manchester City.
Who should I pick?
Alexis Sanchez was the game’s top points scorer in 2016/17 after a stunning individual season for Arsenal, scoring 29 goals and racking up 13 assists in all competitions.
How did Sanchez perform in fantasy football last season?
But the Chilean had the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sergio Aguero and Christian Eriksen hot on his heels for the accolade.
Attacking players, by virtue of actually putting the ball in the back of the net, tend to score juicier points wise, but clean sheets are just as important so you can’t neglect the trusty goalkeepers who have been dominating fantasy football either.
