Football, which is another name for soccer, is a sport in which two teams of 11 players each compete against the other. Players with the best likelihood of scoring points must be chosen. However, in order to do it, a detailed understanding of the dream11 point system is needed. In this article, we have explained the point system for fantasy football on Dream11 to make your gaming experience more thrilling.
Understanding the Point System for Fantasy Football on Dream11
In football, there are mainly three areas in which points are given out: attack, defence, and penalties. Additionally, each football squad you create on Dream11 must contain 11 players, of whom no more than 7 can be from the same team that is competing in the actual match. Similar to fantasy cricket, you must choose a team captain and vice-captain, once you have chosen your 11 players. Note that you will receive twice as many points from the captain as they did in the actual game. The vice-captain will award you 1.5 times as many points as they did in the actual game. Those players in the starting 11 will receive 4 points, and if one of your players is coming as a substitute, he will receive 2 points.
Soccer’s most important aspect is scoring goals. The football player’s position determines how many points are given for scoring goals.
- A goal scored by a striker gets +40 points
- A goal scored by a midfielder gets +50 points
- A goal scored by a defender or goalkeeper gets 60 points
- Passes that set up a goal are considered assists. In other words, when player 1 passes the ball to player 2, and player 2 then scores. Here, player 1 will receive an additional 20 points for helping out.
- Chance created: The final pass that results in a goal will be awarded +3 points if the shot is on target, including goals, blocked, or off-target.
- Shot on target: Every shot that is aimed at goal and is deflected by the goalkeeper will result in a score of 6. Goal is also included here.
- 5 passes completed: For every 5 passes finished, 1 point will be given. A player will receive 12 points if they successfully complete 60 passes.
When a player of yours is in defence on Dream11, here is how the points are distributed:
- Tackle won: Winning a tackle is when a player steals the ball away from an opponent. A player receives 4 points for every successful tackle.
- Interception won: When a player deliberately intercepts a pass by advancing into the path of the targeted ball and keeps possession of the ball, the play is known as an interception win. For instance, when a player from team 1 delivers the ball to a player from the same team and a player from team 2 intercepts the pass. For each interception, four points are given.
- Penalty saved: 50 points are awarded for a penalty kick saved by the goalkeeper.
- Number of saves: A goalie receives 6 points whenever he blocks a shot that is aimed at the net.
- Clean sheet: A clean sheet is given when a player plays for more than 54 minutes without giving up a goal. Therefore, if team 1 fails to score against team 2, all of their defenders and goalie will receive 20 points. A player who is replaced but has already completed more than 54 minutes will still receive the clean sheet bonus.
Note: When a player misses a penalty kick but the goalkeeper has not touched the ball, the goalie receives no points for stopping the penalty while the player who missed receives a negative score.
Other penalties and cards
- In cases of major fouls, the referee will issue a yellow card. In this instance, the player will lose 4 points.
- When a player receives two yellow cards or commits a very serious foul, they are awarded a red card. In this situation, 10 points will be deducted. Additionally, if a player is sent off, he will continue to be punished for goals that his team allows to be scored i.e., for the goals that are allowed after he exits the pitch.
- A player loses eight points if they unintentionally score a goal for their opponent team.
- The player would lose a whopping 20 points if the penalty taker fails the opportunity to score a penalty.
- A player who did not take part in the match as a starter or a replacement will not lose points for obtaining a yellow or red card for bad behaviour off the field.
There will be no more changes made to the points awarded after a match has been declared over and the victors announced. Only when the game is in progress or in review will the points for a live game be susceptible to change. Points will be awarded for any activity that occurs during overtime.
