How to Play FPL Draft – A Beginner’s Guide

Fantasy Premier League Draft is free to play and runs parallel with old-school FPL. If you’re already registered for the long-running FPL game, you can also immediately get involved with Draft.

Draft uses exactly the same scoring system as FPL with only one exception: there are no captains or vice-captains.

There are also no chips or Wildcards.

For the uninitiated or those needing a refresher on the rules, here’s a brief guide on how to play the game.

How to Play

Joining a League/The Draft

The first step is to create or join a league. Private leagues can include up to 16 managers, although the game itself states that eight is the recommended number. Eight, indeed, is the limit for public leagues (although four or six managers are also permitted) – you can enter those with random members of the FPL Draft community.

Like the traditional FPL game, leagues can run in the classic form or in the head-to-head format.

The key selling point of Draft is that each 15-man squad within a private/public league is unique, so only one team in each league can, for example, own Harry Kane or Mohamed Salah.

The draft system used is described as a “snake draft”, where managers take it in turns to select players until a squad is complete over 15 rounds. An example four-team league would follow this pattern at the draft pick stage:

Round 1: Team A, Team B, Team C, Team D
Round 2: Team D, Team C, Team B, Team A

Unlike the traditional FPL format, there are no budgets or player prices – so there is plenty of room for premium assets.

League administrators can set a draft date and time for private leagues, while public league drafts begin 30 minutes after the first team joins. Everything will need to be sorted before the Gameweek 1 deadline on August 11th, however.

Fantasy managers can build a watchlist before the draft, and this can act both as a shortlist of players you are coveting and also a list to govern your automatic picks should you be “away from keyboard”.

There is also the opportunity to take part in a mock draft, allowing you to experience the draft process before doing one for real.

Transactions

Transfers, or “transactions” as they are known in Draft, are made in three ways: Fantasy managers can make “waiver requests”, dip into the free agent pool or trade with another manager in their mini-league.

After the draft has completed, you can trade players with other managers in your league – depending on how it has been configured. Your league administrator can allow no trades, all trades unvetted or trades that need administrator/other managers’ approval.

The waivers, meanwhile, operate like transfer requests from managers who propose both the unattached player they want and the player being swapped out. A weekly deadline is set for waivers to take place and, when that is reached, they operate a lot like the draft.

Indeed, before the season starts, managers get their first waiver requests granted in the reverse order of the draft. So if you went last in the draft in Round 1, you will be the first to get your waiver request processed. However, once you have succeeded with a waiver, you then go to the back of the queue.

Things change when the season starts, with the waivers granted in reverse order of the league table. So if you’re bottom of your private/public league, your waiver will be granted first to give you the best opportunity to strengthen your team.

Inter-manager trade offers can be made each Gameweek until the waiver deadline passes. If trades in your league require approval, then the trade deadline will be 24 hours before the waiver deadline.

Players that are free agents become available once all the waiver requests and manager trades are made. These consist of players remaining in the pool and players that were released by other managers in the previous Gameweek.

Managers can draw from the free agent pool 24 hours before the Gameweek deadline and it’s on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fantasy Premier League have also published an FAQ and a list of rules on the Draft game, should further help be needed.

    Sorry repost!

    Subasic Sommer(x)
    Meunier Trippier Godin Granqvist ???
    Coutinho Modric Bentancur Quintero(x) ???
    Kane Hazard Griezmann

    Have 12 mil to spend on 1 defender and 1 midfielder. Best combination?

    Was thinking perhaps Lovren/Golovin or TSilva/Claesson or Varane/Clarsson? Any other ideas?

  4. Eden Wizard

    First draft NAILED. Critique me! 0.5itb

    Karius Fabs
    Mendy Bellerin Docherty SchlOOP Bednarek
    Mane Dilva Mkhi Redmond HCosta
    Kun Bobby Laca

    1. The Butch

      Mendy sure starter?
      Laca I would wait to see how the new coach plays him.
      Mkhi also in my team
      Bobby might be late for pre season
      Bednarek is great, could be a starter at 4.0 🙂

      Like you, I haven't read the rules.

      1. Red Dagger ✪
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        What are rules..?

  6. Re-Classified Players
    Ludo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 years, 2 months ago

    The start of a new FPL season brings us fresh position changes. Although there was nothing as dramatic as Salah becoming a Forward, I’ve had a look at how the newly re-classified players would have performed in 17/18, if they’d been listed by their 18/19 positions.

    To do this, I re-calculated points totals for the affected players, accounting for positional differences in points given for goals, clean sheets, goals conceded and bonus. I looked at the impact on bonus points on a game-by-game basis, so these should be exact figures.

    Marko Arnautovic (MID > FWD)
    -11 Goal Points
    -7 Clean Sheet Points
    +9 Bonus Points

    144 Points (4.6 PPG) > 135 Points (4.4 PPG)

    Wilfried Zaha (MID > FWD)
    -9 Goal Points
    -10 Clean Sheet Points
    +7 Bonus Points

    136 Points (4.7 Points Per Game or PPG) > 124 Points (4.3 PPG)

    Arthur Masuaku (DEF > MID)
    -18 Clean Sheet Points
    -2 Bonus Points
    +9 Goals Conceded Points

    68 Points (2.5 PPG) > 57 Points (2.1 PPG)

    James Milner (DEF > MID)
    -18 Clean Sheet Points
    -3 Bonus Points
    +7 Goals Conceded Points

    77 Points (2.4 PPG) > 63 Points (2.0 PPG)

    Fabian Delph (MID > DEF)
    +1 Goal Point
    +18 Clean Sheet Points
    +13 Bonus Points
    -3 Goals Conceded Points

    55 Points (2.5 PPG) > 84 Points (3.8 PPG)

    Delph would have picked up bonus in each of the 6 matches where he played 60+ minutes and City kept a CS – he actually had the best minutes per Baseline BPS of any FPL player that made 10 or more starts last season.

    Aaron Wan-Bissaka (MID > DEF)
    +6 Clean Sheet Points
    +2 Bonus Points
    -4 Goals Conceded Points

    15 Points (2.1 PPG > 2.7 PPG)

    Ashley Young (MID > DEF)
    +2 Goal Points
    +27 Clean Sheet Points
    +7 Bonus Points
    -8 Goals Conceded Points

    98 Points (3.3 PPG) > 126 Points (4.2 PPG)

    N.B. Fousseini Diabate has also been re-classified as a Midfielder instead of a Forward, but would have still scored 21 Points last season if the change were made a year earlier.

        Yeah that one is really odd.

    7. Jonny JAB
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Wan-Bissaka could be FPL gold at 4.0m. Kept Fosuh-Mensah and Ward out the CPFC squad after his initial breakout and looks set to play a big part this season. Worth monitoring

      1. Desertbug
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        Didn't they just give Ward a contract extension, though?

        1. Jonny JAB
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 years, 2 months ago

          Yeah but in need of two players for cover/squad depth. Not gonna start with AWB but if he can nail down that RB position (and a lot of cpfc think he will), will hop on straight away!

  7. Jairzinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Despite my comment on the previous page, I am "checking it out" without signing up haha.

    Fulham have a total of 12 players listed. What the heck?

  8. olly:)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    g2g?

    Alisson - Subasic
    Pavard - Fagner- Strinic - Trippier - Maguire
    Modric - Coutinho - Bentancur - Lingard - Zobnin
    Neymar (C) - Kane - Mbappe

  9. Ajax Hamsterdam

    Can't believe folks are already posting drafts ?? 🙂

    What's the code for fantasy scout mini league ? Thanks

    1. meerlight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      It's on the home page: 6025-1936

  10. stat
    3 years, 2 months ago

    Thoughts on this defence?

    Tomkins - Ward (BUR) - Cedric - Williams - Evans

    Gives the following fixtures until the international break after GW 8:

    1: BUR, ful, sou
    2: WAT, SOU, WOL
    3: LEI, ful, wat
    4: SOU, HUD, cpa
    5: BHA, WHU, hud
    6: NEW, BOU, HUD
    7: FUL, new, car
    8: WOL, HUD, EVE

    1. the snazzy viking
      • 5 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      looks good, but I'd try to get one premium defender in there eg. Azpi, Alonso, Mendy, etc.

    2. Eden Wizard
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Mendy could kill you! Otherwise good fixtures

      1. stat
        3 years, 2 months ago

        Might do Aguero -> Firmino and Williams -> Mendy, only problem being Firmino potentially missing the first GW because of the World Cup

  11. Gaalvinism
    • 5 Years
    3 years, 2 months ago

    Does this look good? (*=transferred in)
    3 Brazil (Miranda Coutinho Willian*)
    3 Croatia (Modric Subasic Lovren*)
    2 France (Pavard Mbappe)
    2 England (Trippier Kane)
    2 Belgium (Hazard Courtois)
    1 Russia (Golovin*)
    1 Sweden (Granqvist)
    1 Colombia (SANCHEZ) (X)

  12. 420king
    • 7 Years
    3 years, 2 months ago

    Hold on..why did FPL give me a random name of "Patrick Ebikeme" WTF is this?!

    1. 420king
      • 7 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      fixed

    2. Oven Glover
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      I’d take that over being Random Name on FFS for sure.

  13. Atwood
    • 11 Years
    3 years, 2 months ago

    Wildcard good to go for the quarters?

    Subasic - Muslera
    Hernandez - Maguire - Strinic - Lovren - Fagner
    Lingard - Coutinho - Modric - Bentancur - Claesson
    Neymar - Kane - Mbappe

  14. WARIO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Any thoughts on this first draft? Thank you!

    Ederson - Fabianski
    Smalling - Coleman - TAA - Cedric - 4.0
    Hazard - Mane - Sane - Ramsey - Masuaku
    Firmino - Zaha - Tosun

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Will be tough for you to upgrade on the striker spot if one of the big boys start firing.

    2. Ghost Gooner
      • 7 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      TAA competing w Clyne Gomez and Fabinho. Smalling w Lindelof Bailly Jones

    3. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Tosun to tell

  15. Giggs Boson
    • 10 Years
    3 years, 2 months ago

    Which two are most likely to start at CB for Everton?

    Keane, Holgate, Williams, Martina or Jagielka

    1. olly:)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      expect us to sign someone, however right now i would say keane and jagielka.

    2. Dāzzy
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Not sure but certainly not Martina as he's not a centre-back.

      With Marco Silva it will probably be 3 CBs

      1. Giggs Boson
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        Thought I remember seeing him at CB. Okay, thanks.

      2. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        If that's the case Coleman at WB is a must.

    3. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Martina is a full back. But Funes Mori is lurking around as well. Hard to tell with a new manager, pre-season might give the answer.

      1. olly:)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        funes mori has been sold to villareal.

        1. badgerboy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 years, 2 months ago

          Oh ok, sorry didn't know that. Cheers.

    4. Giggs Boson
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Thanks all.

      Jags is 36 at the start of the season 😯

    5. A.T
      • 11 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Holgate plus a new signing would be my guess. Pre season will tell us.

  16. Murder On Zidanesfloor
    • 3 Years
    3 years, 2 months ago

    Its Ramseys year and next year he will be priced at 9m

    1. Mysterion
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Feels like a comment from July 2013 😛

    2. Giggs Boson
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      On the last year of his contract, so he'll probably be starting every game. I've always liked Ramsey, and if he stays fit he could be gold. I think he's worth the 0.5m over Mkhytarian.

  17. Bambi
    • 9 Years
    3 years, 2 months ago

    Bailly at 5.5 is a steal no?

    1. Dāzzy
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Probably won't play

      1. Bambi
        • 9 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        he had an ankle injury from Nov- to feb. when fit he played

        1. UshFPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 years, 2 months ago

          Not at the end of the season

          1. Dāzzy
            • 3 Years
            3 years, 2 months ago

            This

          2. The Special Juan
            • 4 Years
            3 years, 2 months ago

            Didn't Jose say he wasn't playing him because Bailly wasn't fighting to make a World Cup squad?

      2. The Tinkerman
        • 6 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        He is their best CB

    2. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Smalling, Jones and Lindelof are all in the mix.

    3. The Tinkerman
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Looks it to me. Also TAA could be at 5.0, if he keeps his place regularly.

  18. GreennRed
    • 10 Years
    3 years, 2 months ago

    Wildcard.Getting fedup with this now. Wanna watch the games.

    Muslera
    Hernandez, Miranda, Meunier
    Coutinho, Cheryshev, Lingard, Claesson
    Mbappe (c), Kane, Hazard

    Subasic, Modric, Granqvist, Kutepov

    1. Johnny Drama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Looks good to me

  19. Jimmy Boy
    • 5 Years
    3 years, 2 months ago

    DDG
    Mendy - Christensen - Jagielka
    Mane - Alexis - Ramsey - Cairney
    Aguero - Lukaku - Zaha

    £4m - Bednarek - Wan-Bissaka - Gunnarsson

    Will transfer in Williams if friendlies suggest he'll start over Jags. Otherwise, how does this look?

    1. Dāzzy
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Not a fan but GL

    2. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Where's the bench?

      1. Jimmy Boy
        • 5 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        Really?

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Sanchez and Lukaku? That's way too much invested in a mediocre attack.

      1. Jimmy Boy
        • 5 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        United always seem to start the season well, we can look as close as the beginning of 17/18 as an example (16 goals in first 5 PL games). Also easy to replace Sanchez with whoever looks to be the form midfielder bar Salah should it backfire.

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 years, 2 months ago

          Fair enough. Could pay off.

    4. Leaf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Wan-Bissaka no idea who that is but I’m getting him for the name

      1. Eden Wizard
        • 3 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        Likely to start RB

      2. Pumpy
        • 12 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        Seriously who is he

    5. Pumpy
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Lot of overpriced players

      I assume your a UTD fan? Head over heart in fpl

  20. Lovren an elevator
    • 6 Years
    3 years, 2 months ago

    Which team rotates with Fulham best? Cheers

    1. Dāzzy
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Cardiff the best of a bad bunch I think

    2. A.T
      • 11 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Chelsea

      1. A.T
        • 11 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        For get that.

    If you're even considering spending over 10 million on a Man United attacker then there's something seriously wrong with your thought process.

    PVA worth the extra million on Tomkins?

      Yes

      Hard to say.
      Tomkins and PvA had a very similar PPM last season (Tomkins at 3.5, PvA at 3.4) even though Tomkins played 204 more mins. Tomkins got more bonus points (9 vs 7) too.
      PvA is likelier to score / assist but Tomkins is also a goal threat, especially from corners.
      It really depends on how you are going to use that extra 1M but IMO sticking with Tomkins isn't the worst idea.

        I'd probably upgrade my 7.5m mid (Sigurdsson or Ramsey) to David Silva. Already have Sane and Aguero though.

          Siggy's fixtures look so good to pass up. I'd keep him

            Agreed. If he looks nailed under the new manager think he could do really well this season. Also fancy PVA to get some attacking returns.

            Cheers for the feedback.

              Siggy is good enough for any PL team

      PvA always waits until the end of the season to get his attacking returns.

      Tomkins is a fairly consistent threat at set pieces throughout.

    Do you see more points in Modric or Rakitic? Rakitic played more attacking last game, right?

    1. Johnny Drama

      Modric still on pens you believe?

        I hope so he scored in the shootout should continue on them

      Have you tried “it’s coming home”?

    Before we actually look into best players by price bracket, what do you think is the best price structure for a 3-5-2?

    Am on something directionally like this:
    4.5 + 4.5 (or 5+4)
    6.5 + 5.5 + 4.5 + 4.5 + 4.5
    9.5 + 9.5 + 7.0 + 6.5 + 6.5
    11.0 + 11.0 + 4.5

    1. Giggs Boson
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      Ideally you want your benched attacker to be a starter. Are there any starting 4.5m strikers?

      That seems a decent structure for a 3-5-2 though 🙂

      1. The Butch
        • 6 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        Thanks!

        No 4.5 starting forward... But that would be my only non bench starter...

      To be honest, you have to look at the players. Salah is 13.0, Kane is 12.5. If you want both, or even one of them, you need to make serious downgrades elsewhere.

      1. The Butch
        • 6 Years
        3 years, 2 months ago

        Thanks!

        Yes totally agree, but I think I'll pass on salah as I have a theory that he will be more blocked than this season, as he was end of last season... If I am proved wrong then William WC early season

        Kane for me would come in later and 11+11 could become 12.5+9.5, ie plus firmino, but that's for September

    For people looking for a rotating defence over the first 5 weeks you can use Tomkins, Keane, Tarkowski, Morrison and Dunk for:

    ful, sou, wlv
    WAT, SOU, NEW
    ful, hud, wat
    SOU, HUD, FUL
    hud, sou, wlv

      Erm... No thanks

    2. Giggs Boson
      • 10 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      I've learnt my lesson with doing this in the past. In a few weeks you'll hate your backline and have no FTs to spare to sort it out. Injuries and rotation is rife in this sport, and when it happens you'll want solid defenders to hold the line while you find a FT.

      Also, there always seems to be huge bandwagons around the 5.5m mark, that I end up getting priced out of by late season.

      If you can pull it off, fair play, but it's very high risk.

    Lacazette looks good value at £9.5m. And no, I am not Random Name in disguise.

    1. I Member

      3 years, 2 months ago

      A lot of the Arsenal players look good value but we have no idea how Emery will line up. Could be Aubameyang through the middle and Laca on the bench.

  30. Saniul

    3 years, 2 months ago

    Why are so few Palace players listed in the game?

    Not exactly sure who all are missing - but Souare, Ward and Wickham come directly to my mind.

    1. A.T
      • 11 Years
      3 years, 2 months ago

      My guess is that this is happening a lot so as to reduce the amount of definite non playing options, where the price will remain the same and not be prone to price drops. I’ve seen someone mention Fulham are the same.
      This of course could be total nonsense on my part.
