How to Play FPL – A Beginner’s Guide

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) is back for another season so Fantasy Football Scout, once again, are here to help.

Perhaps you’ve never played FPL before and have been roped into a mini-league by one of your overly keen friends.

Or maybe you’re one of those die-hard Fantasy managers who need a complete guide to show your clueless colleagues, to make sure they definitely sign up for your mini-league?

Whoever you are, we hope this comprehensive guide explains everything you need to know about FPL.

What is Fantasy Premier League?

FPL is a game that casts you in the role of a fantasy manager. Your task is to pick a squad of players who then score points based on their real-life performances.

Do I need to play in a league?

The game can be played solo, with managers pitching their team against millions of others around the world. However, the more exciting option is to enter your team in private mini-leagues alongside your friends or colleagues.

How do I pick my team or squad?

FPL hands you a £100m budget to spend on your 15-man squad. If you’re new to the game, this budget may seem generous but once you start selecting players, it will start getting eaten up pretty quickly. You will find that the most expensive players will be the attacking options of midfielders and forwards.

With 11 of your squad starting each Gameweek, it’s up to you to decide which four to leave on the bench and in which order. They will replace any starters that do not participate at all.

Can I make changes to my initial FPL squad?

Before the start of the Premier League season, you can alter the squad as much as you want.

However, once the first deadline has passed you are limited to one free transfer per Gameweek. There is always the option to carry it over into the following Gameweek but be aware that no more than two free transfers can be collected.

After these, additional changes can be made but at a cost of four points per transfer.

The deadline for each Gameweek is always 90 minutes before the first kick-off. For example, if the opener is on Saturday at 12:30 pm (UK time), the deadline will therefore be 11:00 am.

How do I allocate my budget?

Maintaining some squad balance is advised, with a healthy mix of premium stars and cheaper assets throughout.

This balance makes it easier to purchase exciting, in-form players and helps when you’re confronted with an injury or suspension.

Ideally, aim for a situation whereby one or two free transfers can fix any potential problem. Investing heavily in one area of the team may jeopardise this, should you run into some bad luck.

Okay, so which players do I pick?

At the early stage of the season, it’s harder to say which assets will be the most important, but we will always have plenty of content available to help you pick an initial squad and make transfers through the season. So make sure you stick around!

How Do I Score Points?

There are lots of different ways to score points in FPL, with goals, assists and clean sheets the most important match events.

Each Gameweek requires selecting a captain to score double points. By also picking a vice-captain, you have a back-up in case that captain doesn’t make an appearance.

Below is a grid which details how to score with players from different positions.

ActionPoints scored
Playing up to 60 minutes1
Playing more than 60 minutes2
Each goal scored by a goalkeeper/defender6
Each goal scored by a midfielder5
Each goal scored by a forward4
Each assist3
Clean sheet by a goalkeeper/defender (must play 60+ mins)4
Clean sheet by a midfielder (must play 60+ mins)1
Every three shots saved by a goalkeeper1
A penalty save by a goalkeeper5
Bonus points for the best players in a match1-3

Can My Team Lose Points?

Unfortunately, there are a few ways to lose points too.

ActionPoints scored
Missing a penalty-2
Every two goals conceded by a goalkeeper/defender-1
Each yellow card-1
Each red card-3
Each own goal-2

What are chips?

All FPL managers begin the season with a complete set of chips, to be deployed throughout the campaign. Try to be patient with them.

There are a range of different chips that managers can use:

Wildcard – The Wildcard allows you to transform your squad by making an unlimited number of free transfers in that Gameweek. It lasts beyond that one round and is your new team. There are two of these to use – the first can be used at any point until December 29th, while the second can only be used after that date.

Free Hit – This is like the Wildcard but for just one Gameweek, allowing unlimited free transfers for that round of games. Your old team resumes afterwards.

Triple Captain – For one Gameweek, your captain will score triple points instead of the usual double.

Bench Boost – If you’re struggling to relegate four players to the bench, this chip allows you to receive points from all 15 players. Just for one round, though.

What should I do if my players get injured or suspended?

Monitor our injuries and bans table regularly to check on your team and if a player looks to be out for a few weeks, consider using a transfer to replace him.

When should I sign new players for my team?

A player’s form will fluctuate throughout the season, so be careful. Ideally, you’d be looking ahead rather than chasing points that have already been missed out on.

Sustained form and proven point scorers are what you’re after. Jumping on bandwagons can often be profitable but only when it belongs to a player who you think can sustain their form.

There’s certainly a wealth of information to sift through on this website if you’re going to try to stay on top of things. We’ll bring you the weekly information you need to make informed decisions, plus opinion pieces from Scout writers and Pro Pundits.

    10. LangerznMash

      I'm loving Engels instead.

  2. POLSKA GOLA
    • 8 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    Who’s the best forward up to 6.0?
    Not sold on Southampton due to tough home fixtures

    1. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Wesley possibly, but I prefer Ings personally.

      1. POLSKA GOLA
        • 8 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        I was looking at Wesley, may take a punt on him

    2. BarrowAFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      I think Southampton will do well this year, will surprise a few teams so Adams or Ings will be good value. Failing that Wesley from Villa may do well.

      1. POLSKA GOLA
        • 8 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        Their initial home fixtures are very tough. I’m considering Brighton forwards

  3. Limbo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    I'm 90% there now...

    ------

    A: Perez + Kane ?
    B: KDB + Wilson ?

    ------

    Rest of team:

    Ryan (Button)
    Digne / Coleman / TAA / Holebaps (Lunds)
    ???? / Salah / Sterling / Barkley (Dendocker)
    ???? / Kean (Greenwood)

    Ta.

    1. tankle
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Prefer B. KdB looked sharp in CS

      1. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        Yeah. It's my gut.

    2. drilsby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      personally feel KSS is too much. Go B

      1. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        Yeah. Feels more balanced. I can only hope Kane will do another August.

    3. TheDragon
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      You’ve clearly got very high hopes for Everton!

      1. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        Those fixtures are too good. Coleman and Digne will be mainstays and they should get 4-5 CS in the first 10. I hope.... Happy to ship Kean to performing £6.5m if it's not working.

    4. Veezeeboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Woah
      Thoughts on holebaps? He always starts well but no love for him here.

  4. Deece
    • 10 Years

    Any cash leagues that I could join please?

  5. Ste75
    • 8 Years

    RMT please. Advice/feedback appreciated.

    Heaton
    Coleman Robertson VVD
    Salah Sterling Perez Robinson
    Adams Wesley Auba

    Button Dendoncker Dunk Lundstram

  6. tankle
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    g2g?

    Heaton (4.0)
    TAA – VvD – Zinc (Montoya – Rico)
    Salah – Sterling – KdB – Perez (Dendo)
    Wilson – King (Wickham)

    1. Outlier
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Personally I wouldn’t double up with Sterling and KDB, nor Wilson and King.

      1. tankle
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        Thx. Wilson and King is for 1-2 GWs to see which of the new signings hit the ground running (Haller, Wesley, Maupay, etc.)

        Comfortable with 3 pool and 3 city players. Best teams in the league by a distance.

        1. Outlier
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 10 months ago

          Good logic

  7. Tsparkes10
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    442 anyone?

    Hendo
    AWB Robo VVD Digne
    Salah KDB Robinson Doucoure
    Aubameyang Vardy

    Hmmmm hmm hmm

    1. TheDragon
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      You had me until Doucoure

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        Lool. Great fixtures and a consistent beast, what's not to like 🙂

    2. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Better buy a big sofa.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        For whom? Perez, Bournemouth and Sterling? Won't need one

        1. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 years, 10 months ago

          Sterling is going to be very hard to ignore in a few weeks.

    3. DV8R
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      No Sterling might hurt you

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        Not too difficult to get back in tbh. Not set on this, just an idea.

    4. Fpl Richie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      That's nice (assuming a Douncoure transfer?).
      I'm one of those annoying Sterling fearmongers but I admit its decent.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        My current no Sterling looks like.

        Hendo
        Robo VVD Diop
        Salah KDB Robinson Perez LM
        Aubam Wilson

        But tbf I do like the look of this 442. Just prefer 3 at back as feel it's more explosive and reliable

  8. Cojones of Destiny
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    better combo along with Wilson:
    a. Wood + Jota
    b. Deeney + Jota
    c. Deeney + Wood

    thx

      B

  10. drilsby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    Draft #91203. Would appreciate some hard words.

    Ryan, (Button)
    Robbo, VVD, Aké (Dunk, Lunds)
    Salah, KDB, Perez, Barkley (Dendo)
    Kane, Wilson, Jota

    May swap Barkley if the gamble is too much for my nerves.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Can you do anything with Ake if you downgrade Jota?

    2. POLSKA GOLA
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      I like it although I would downgrade Barkley to Hayden and upgrade Dunk

    3. DV8R
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Not Ake.

    4. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Think there are better 4.5 keepers than Ryan but he is in the running
      Nope on Ake
      Barkley a risk worth taking?
      Struggling to know which one to go with, Sterling or KDB. I have both but picking one I would go Sterling as an easy downgrade to KDB if needed. Jota could fund this

    5. drilsby
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      I did like the idea of some Bournemouth defense for the first 2 GWs, and Ake seemed like the way to there.
      Hmm.

  11. Fletch365
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    What would you change here guys? Is Ederson too risky week 1?

    Ederson | Button
    VVD | Maguire | Digne | Dunk | Lundstram
    Sterling | Salah | Perez | Grealish | Dendocker
    Kane | King | Greenwood

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      OK. Surely Ederson to start.

  12. EgyptianKing
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    Lucas or Chenko too risky to start the season with Dybala and Cancelo probably signing?

    Lucas at least should start against Villa no?

    Cheers

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Even if Dybala comes, had no pre-season. Don't think Cancelo will have much impact on Zinc.

    2. Lallana Del Rey
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Lucas starts against Villa but City gw2 and Son back for gw3

  15. child of God

    Matip or Gomez and why?

    1. jomikijiq
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      neither

    2. POLSKA GOLA
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      I’d rather have Origi if I had to

    3. Outlier
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      I’m going with Gomez as I think he’ll start, but need to ensure you have enough others starters and bench as it is a gamble. Can always transfer if we get it wrong.

  16. The Man Pastore

      Was just looking into this. Both Watford and West Ham have decent fixtures in GWs 4, 7 and 8.

      Watford & Brighton avoids big 6 for first 19 weeks or more. On downside, neither team can really defend.

      Looks pretty good - not seen Milli in many teams.

      No Liverpool defence is a big risk though (is much rather have a Liverpool defender and city keeper than vice versa)

    2. Outlier
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Looks good, although your bench aren’t guaranteed starters which you might need with Zinchenko and Barkley in the first 11

    Best 4.5 midfielder and striker?

    1. POLSKA GOLA

      Mids: Dendonker, Hayden
      Forwards: Greenwood

    Add Eriksen to the list of players to have turned down United this summer.

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      1. useruser
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        Unless he wanted a big pay day. Poor old Gollum couldn't attract a bee.

    Hi all please help - question is basically if Kane is really worth all the sacrifice elsewhere?

    Pope X
    VVD Rob Zin X
    Salah Sterling Perez X
    X X

    A. Button Dunk/Cath Barkley King KANE
    B. Heaton Digne Pulisic Wilson 6.5 (drawn out of a Wood Jota Deulo hat Friday night)

    Be is soooooo much sexier and all I gots to do is give up Kane.

      pretty standard stuff, only question is if you want to downgrade Sig/Pereyra 0.5 to get Digne/7.0 at the back

    Hi all,
    I'm a FFS member.

    In defensive stats in team stats, we can see chances conceded (Left Flank/ Centre/ Right Flank) and Crosses Conceded (L/R Flank).

    Sorry for braindead question - If a team is showing way more chances conceded down, lets say, the Left Flank, do you then look for RIGHT sided opponents to capitalize on it?

    1. UshFPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Yes

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Yes. However, I am not sure last season’s data means much at this stage.

  25. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    A) Tielemans
    B) Barkley

    Already have Perez, 0.5 will be used to upgrade 4.5fwd to 5.0 or 4.0gk to 4.5.

  26. Leeds2116
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    McGinn or Norwood as 5th non playing mid?

    1. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      I'd probably go Norwood just on disciplinary record

  27. Igor-Stimac
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    Anyone doubling up with KDB and Sterling?

    1. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Yes. Don't fancy their back 4 until we know more and want at least 2 city. Can't afford Kun + Sterling.

      1. Igor-Stimac
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        Interesting - where have you taken the value from? Defence or attack?

    2. UshFPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Yes

  28. Punter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    Tinkering so much this week. Thinking about this more balanced team but not sure, thoughts?

    Heaton
    Digne - VVD - Robbo - Duffy
    Moura - Salah(C) - Sterling - Perez
    King - Wood

    Stek - Felipe Anderson - Lund - Wickham

    I would sub Felipe in for gw2 benching Perez or Wood. Then move off Wood before gw3. I like his first fixture and don't mind him v Arsenal either in gw2. Could downgrade him to fodder before gw3 and upgrade Duffy to whichever City defender is looking good, after they've gotten the Spurs fixture out of the way.

    Over thinking it?? Haha

  29. UshFPL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 years, 10 months ago

    Am I correct in saying that Norris and Woodman's prices can't drop because they are red flagged having gone out on loan?

    If so, are they the best 4.0 keeper options? While you don't have the slim chance of owning a 4.0 playing keeper, you avoid losing team value

    1. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Think they need more transfers to drop when red flagged, only immune to a drop for a while after red flag removed. Correct me if i'm wrong.

      1. UshFPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 10 months ago

        Ok, thanks

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 10 months ago

      Norris could be a waste of a Wolves spot, lots have Dendocker and are considering Jota. Doesn't really allow any other Wolves players so Woodman in this scenario.

    What do you think about my team guys? Need advice

    Pope (Ryan)
    Robbo-Zinchenko-Dunk (Diop-Kelly)
    Salah-Mane-Siggy-Fraser-Perez
    Wilson-Kean (Greenwood)

    Or

    Pope (Ryan)
    Robbo-VVD-Dunk (Diop-Kelly)
    Salah-Pepe-Siggy-Fraser-Perez

    Thanks
