How to Play FPL – A Beginner’s Guide

Fantasy Premier League 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 needs a complete guide to show your clueless colleagues to make sure they definitely sign up to your mini-league?

Whoever you are, we hope this comprehensive guide tells you all you need to know about FPL this summer.

What is Fantasy Premier League?

Fantasy Premier League is a game that casts you in the role of a fantasy manager. You are given the task to pick a squad of real-life players who score points for your team based on their performances in their own matches.

Do I need to play in a league?

The game can be played solo, with managers pitching their team against all other registered managers in the world. However, the more exciting option is to enter your team in a private mini-league with your friends or colleagues.

How do I pick my team or squad?

FPL hands you a £100m budget which you spend on your squad. If you’re new to the game this budget may seem generous but once you take a look at the player list and start selecting, it’s a good bet that it will start getting eaten up pretty quickly. You will find that the most expensive players will be the attacking options in midfield and forward positions.

Your squad will have 15 players in it but only 11 can start every week, it’s up to you to decide which four to leave on the bench. They will only come into your side if members of your starting line-up do not register any minutes.

Can I change my lineup once I’ve picked it?

Before the start of the Premier League season, you can make an unlimited number of transfers as long as the value of your squad does not exceed the £100m budget.

However, once the first deadline has passed you are limited to one free transfer per Gameweek. If you do not use it then you will have two free transfers the following Gameweek, although you cannot roll more than two.

You are allowed to make more transfers on top of the free ones, but you will be charged four points for each switch made that is surplus to your allocation for that week.

The deadline for each Gameweek is always one hour before the kick-off time of the first fixture. Normally that’s at 11.30am UK time on a Saturday but there will be Friday night matches and mid-week fixtures too this season.

How do I allocate my budget?

In order to maintain a balance in your squad, it is best to split your budget evenly across the four different positions: goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards. Ideally, you want no more than two premium asset per position and would do well to fill your squad out with cheaper assets who are important to the so-called smaller clubs.

Doing so can reap rewards. Your players will get injuries, suspensions and loss of form and if you take steps to select a more balanced team in terms of cost, you may find it easier to repair any holes. Ideally, you need to aim for a situation whereby one-for-one transfers will be enough to fix any problems you may run into. Investing heavily in one area of the team and then being unlucky enough to run into problems in that area, could leave you with surplus cash that will be wasted without using additional transfers elsewhere in your team.

Okay, so which players do I pick?

As there a large number of players available in FPL there are lots of potentially effective combinations. 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 your initial squad and make your transfers now and through the season. So make sure you stick around!

How Do I Score Points?

There are lots of different ways to score points on FPL, with goals, assists and clean sheets the most important match events. Whoever you pick as captain will score double points in that Gameweek. 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 THE CHIPS?

There are four different chips Fantasy managers can use on FPL this season to boost their overall points-score in any given Gameweek. They are:

Wildcard – The Wildcard allows you to make an unlimited number of transfers in a Gameweek without incurring any points hits. You have 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.

Triple Captain – Normally your chosen captain will score double points in a Gameweek. One week in the season you can deploy the Triple Captain chip to triple his score instead.

Bench Boost – Usually you are forced to bench four of your players but the Bench Boost allows you to, one week a season, add the points from your substitute to your overall Gameweek score.

Free Hit – Just like the Wildcard, this allows you to make any number of transfers you wish without losing points to transfer hits. However, it only lasts one Gameweek; once it is over your old team comes back. This is especially useful for blank or double Gameweeks.

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

You need to assess and react to injuries quickly. Monitor our injuries and bans table regularly to check on your team and if a player looks to be out for 2-3 weeks consider replacing him as this could well mean a 3-4 game absence given that he’d have to regain his match fitness and place in the side.

If you have players simply not playing you need to look at just how serious an issue this is on a player by player basis.

As a rule, though, it’s something you need to consider acting upon. Even if the player is getting on as a sub or even starting 75% of the first five games, if he has competition for his place or has been rotated, then it’s something you may have to deal with over the entire season. If you have an alternative on your shortlist who is more reliable and scoring well, it might be best to make the change early rather than have one player distract you and have you guarding transfers for the opening few months.

When should I sign new players for my team?

As for player form, this will fluctuate throughout the season. Keep an eye out for form players but don’t be tempted by one week wonders who hit a hat-trick and then never follow it up for the rest of the season. Sustained form and proven point scorers are what you’re after. Jumping on bandwagons can often be profitable but only when it’s being pulled by a player who 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 information you need on a weekly basis to make informed decisions and there will be enough opinion from us and other visitors to the site to consider. Monitor our team news section week-by-week prior to fixtures and also check out the Scout Notes that we provide after every set of matches. These will point out any significant changes to team lineups and offer clues on which players have their place under threat at any given time, as well as those players coming into form.

    First RMT entry, how's it looking?

    Pope (Heaton)
    Robo VVD Digne (Diop, Lund)
    Salah Bilva Fraser Perez (Dend)
    Kane Wesley King

    0.5 itb

    Tempted to swap Fraser to Zaha if Everton move transpires and potentially upgrade Bilva to KDB!

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Vv nice. Like that idea aswell but doubt Zaha plays gw1 so maybe not? Thoughts below?

    2. Boris Bodega
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Nice team, I wouldn't tinker any further personally

    3. Tshelby
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Don't know if Bilva will be enough City cover. Might just want to go with one goalie, set and forget.

  2. Tshelby
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Current draft :

    Heaton, Button
    VvD, Digne, Taa, Diop, Rico
    Sterling, Salah, Trossard, Perez, Dendoncker
    Kane, King, Greenwood

    Thoughts? Template I guess?

    Or should I change Sterling, King and Diop -> KdB, Wilson, AWB?

    1. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Looks a little weak but that's what happenes when you have SSK

      1. Tshelby
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        It does but is it worth moving away from the SSK trio?

        1. Pumpy Pro
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I'm not sure myself yet but Moura could certainly outscore Kane at the start so it's what you can do with the money left over. Wilson is a must for the first 2 imo

        2. Pumpy Pro
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I've not seen one side with all 3 in that resembles a good overall side

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Hmm. Looks okay but not too sure on Diop and Trossard starting week in week out personally. Would be tempted to downgrade a defender or Sterling to KDB to help strengthen slightly

      Thoughts below?

  3. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Current team:
    Hendo
    Robo X X
    Salah X X Perez Robinson
    Aubameyang Wesley

    A) Digne, TAA, KDB, Fraser
    B) Burn/WH rotate, VVD, Sterl, 7.0

    1. DV8R
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Don’t like Henderson, Robinson or Wesley tbh. A, but you can do much better than that draft

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Nah I like them 3 picks for the first few weeks and all enablers :). How's yours looking

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I know it’s tempting but promoted squads are always a wait and see for me. My squad is delicious 😉

          1. Tsparkes10
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            True say but I have to back my boys and Wesley looks good and like Villa's fixtures. Best at the 6.0m price anyways imo

            1. IRBOX ⚽
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              It’s admirable but Sheffield are relegation candidate favourites. Wesley has never put up brilliant stats let’s be honest

              1. Tsparkes10
                • 2 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                We were relegation favourites when we got promoted from league one. I know it's a different level but couldn't care less how people think that know nothing about us tbh.

                Welsey is my punt as fancy villa to score a few and don't fancy any mid or defender at that price

                1. EMBOLOFAN
                  • 2 Years
                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  lol

            2. Unliklinho
              • 7 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              But you don't though... I had friends who were Pool fans who had to have three players in their team at all times even when they were terrible. It's called 'fantasy' football - you can pretend you're a Spurs fan if you like 😀

          2. Tshelby
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Not giving any info away about your squad ;)?

        2. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          How confident are you about Robinson’s game time?

          1. Tsparkes10
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Confident enough to have him in my starting xi 😉

      2. EMBOLOFAN
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        agree with irbox

    3. Tshelby
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Don't know about Robinson. A gives more balanced squad but B has Sterling so hard to choice between them.

    4. Pointless
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Are you also confident about Lundstram's game time? I've got him in my team at the mo but anxious having heard some say he won't start.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Nah. Don't like Lundstram at all tbh

        1. Pointless
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Thanks - if Lundstram's not good enough for you, he's not good enough for me! Back to the drawing board!

    5. Balls of Steel
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A, Digne, Fraser fixtures look really good to start with and KDB can have a big say in City's midfield points this season

    6. Boris Bodega
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B

  4. In a Rush
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Any thoughts on the best 6M or below defender?
    I’m on maguire at the moment alongside Digne and Robertson obviously 0.5 Itb currently
    Any thoughts appreciated cheers

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Pereira

      1. In a Rush
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Interesting

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      digne

      1. In a Rush
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Read again already own him cheers

    3. fattfattygavgav
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I think Zincenko's a good shout until Mendy's back. AWB might be a better pick than Maguire maybe for bonus. Although the ball can sometimes rebound off Maguire's massive head into the goal.

      1. In a Rush
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Ha that’s what I’m thinking with slab head but could have shaw or awb really not sure I think Zinchenko is fools gold unfortunately

    4. Boris Bodega
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'm going AWB, more attacking option I hope.

  5. Pumpy Pro
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is Montoya nailed?

    1. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      At the moment yes, no real competition for his place.

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      new manager but seems it based on preseason, best 4.5 option imo

  6. DV8R
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Premium striker vs no premium striker?

    A) Kane/Auba, King, Dunk (to rotate with Lund)
    B) Wilson, Haller, Laporte

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Difficult. B as I don't like King or Dunk and love the haller punt. Fancy Aubam for first 2 however so quite difficult

  7. fattfattygavgav
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Morning All,

    A. AWB
    or
    B. Coleman

    Nervous about Everton's clean sheets without Zouma and Gaye.
    Man U's defence is still uncertain with Maguire settling time and last season's woeful display.

    Thoughts much apreciated.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      coleman cuz of the fixtures, easy switch to awb if mufc look better

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      AWB, nailed

  8. balint84
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    What to do with Kelly (4.0)? are there alternatives in that price? High chance he won't play

    1. Kante FC
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Rico, Lundstram and Hanley all have decent chances of playing

  9. Absolute VARce
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    What we reckon...

    Ederson
    Robbo TAA Digne Walker
    Salah Sterling Perez
    Jimenez King Wesley

    Button Lundstram Dend Stephens

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Pretty solid lineup, is this new rb for City Cancelo going to take Walkers spot or just back up?

      1. Absolute VARce
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Still waiting on news if that signings confirmed arnt we? If so il prob swap out for zinchenko or go for AWB i recs

  10. HAMMERTIME107
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Ryan or Heaton
    Robertson | Coleman | Zinchenko
    Sterling | Dendoncker | Perez | Salah | Barkley
    Aubameyang | Wilson

    1. Absolute VARce
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I Like it. Heaton aswell

  11. CarrollsPonytail
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Can I have some thoughts on this please?

    Pope (Heaton)
    Robertson Maguire Dunk (Fredericks Lundstram)
    Salah Sterling Perez Barkley (Dendoncker)
    Aubameyang King Jota

    1. tissae
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Maguire --> AWB

    2. Saint & Reevesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Heaton to 4.0
      Jota to ings
      King to Jiménez
      Aub or Kane

      Gives you a bit more punch up front IMO

    3. Lacabacca
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      No Everton?

  12. tissae
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Which one would you pick?

    A. Fraser + Jota + Wilson
    B. Siggurdson + King + Wilson

    1. CarrollsPonytail
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      B

      A

    3. Jimjam
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1. Eastman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I have A

  13. Saint & Reevesy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    What’s the consensus on Barkley

    Is he nailed?

    Could be incredible value if on pens, set pieces and continues he’s pre-season form.

    1. CarrollsPonytail
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I'm taking the gamble. Easy enough to switch to Mount if need be.

    2. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Should be. I think Mount could play as well in Pedro's spot

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      think he’ll often be subbed earlyish for mount but im getting him anyway

    4. some witty pun
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Chelsea fan here. Hes been our best player by a mile in preseason, in the short term he IS nailed. But Lampard likes Mount alot so its hard to say

      1. Saint & Reevesy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Thanks mate. I can see him flourishing under lampard good for Chelsea and England potentially.

    5. Boris Bodega
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Wait and see for me, as with the whole Chelsea squad.

  14. EMBOLOFAN
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    i have 0.5 laying around. would you bother doing zinchy to walker? feel like the former might even play more often

    other option is perez to madds but similarly i kinda prefer perez...

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      or siggy to pogba? not sure about that either

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Not this.. Zinc to Walker is something I would seriously look at. Would have Stones over the Ukrainian regardless

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          you think angelino is in contention?

      2. SKULL AND GNOMES
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Walker and Rich if I had that cash

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          rich only played 45mins of preseason or else id have him

  15. Malinwa
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Thoughts about Haller, anyone?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      has never played a second of premier league football so

    2. In a Rush
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      In my team along side Kean and wilson good feeling about them all

    3. CarrollsPonytail
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Lanzini better value but Haller could be a gamble worth taking - he will be the focal point of the side.

    4. Dacra
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Like him.

      My team is pretty much set except:

      A) Haller + Kdb
      B) Auba + Barkley

      I'm his biggest fan here and wanted him at WH for some time before we were linked. I would fully understand people waiting a few weeks, but he's the focal point, will get assists, is probably on pens, has an excellent record and is coming into his prime. So I'm sold on having him and Wilson up top - allows for a good balanced team. If you haven't seen him play, he's something like Jimenez mixed with Lukaku.

      Deulofeu may be injured - perhaps consider Jota or Wood

  17. tomasjj

    As the return on investment is larger with defenders, and midfielders, does it not make sense to stack up on the relatively cheaper, good defenders?

    Ar am I wrong?

    1. Dacra
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      It was last year, no guaranatee it will be this year..

      Was on C for a long while. Assuming you have Dendoncker as 5th mid.

    2. Dacra
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      If you have all 3 as starters, the one that has 3 starters.

    Am going without Sterling because of fear for rotation. Is this ok?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      not a good reason to go without, but going without is fine

      1. nisag17

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      i really like it but not sure azpi is best value choice. would gamble on zouma, also based on preseason mins emerson seems like the left back spot is his to lose

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        my pref is kdb > siggy then heaton > ederson also

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No thanks on Azpi. Would take Digne instead. But tidy looking team.

  30. Kiwi Don

    Is it better to have 2 non playing subs and max out first team value or have 3 playing subs and slightly cheaper options in the team? Thinking the second option would allow you a better chance of picking the right bargain and gaining team value.

    1. Kante FC
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      If you only go with 3 in midfield it leaves you with 2 default 4.5s to sit on the bench. Both will be 2 point magnets and certain to get you a small amount of points when required.

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      former rn with everyone fit, no yellows etc

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        1 playing sub seems template

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      In the middle. 2 playing subs should be enough. Was an article on this the other day.
