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.

    10. LangerznMash

      I'm loving Engels instead.

  2. POLSKA GOLA
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

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

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

      Wesley possibly, but I prefer Ings personally.

      1. POLSKA GOLA
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

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

    2. BarrowAFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 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
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

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

  3. Limbo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 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
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Prefer B. KdB looked sharp in CS

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

        Yeah. It's my gut.

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

      personally feel KSS is too much. Go B

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

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

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

      You’ve clearly got very high hopes for Everton!

      1. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 3 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
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

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

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

    Any cash leagues that I could join please?

  5. Ste75
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    RMT please. Advice/feedback appreciated.

    Heaton
    Coleman Robertson VVD
    Salah Sterling Perez Robinson
    Adams Wesley Auba

    Button Dendoncker Dunk Lundstram

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

    g2g?

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

    1. Outlier
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

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

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

          Good logic

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

    442 anyone?

    Hendo
    AWB Robo VVD Digne
    Salah KDB Robinson Doucoure
    Aubameyang Vardy

    Hmmmm hmm hmm

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

      You had me until Doucoure

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

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

    2. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Better buy a big sofa.

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

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

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

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

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

      No Sterling might hurt you

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

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

    4. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

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

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 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. what\'s my name
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

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

    thx

      B

  10. drilsby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 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…
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Can you do anything with Ake if you downgrade Jota?

    2. POLSKA GOLA
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

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

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

      Not Ake.

    4. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 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
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 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
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 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…
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      OK. Surely Ederson to start.

  12. EgyptianKing
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 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…
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

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

    2. Lallana Del Rey
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

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

    Anyone punting on Maupay

      Wait and see who plays

    Matip or Gomez and why?

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

      neither

    2. POLSKA GOLA
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I’d rather have Origi if I had to

    3. Outlier
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 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.

    Is any 4.5 def rotating well with Montoya?

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

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

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

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

    3. Oldie99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      do you guys pick Montoya over Dunk?

        Yea i would

  17. Mortinho

    Any thoughts?

    Alisson

    Zinchenko
    Wan-Bissaka
    Digne

    Milivojevic
    Robinson
    Salah
    Sterling
    Barkley

    King
    Kane

    Button
    Lundstram
    Greenwood
    Simpson

    1. TheDragon

      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
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 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
      • 7 Years

      Mids: Dendonker, Hayden
      Forwards: Greenwood

      1. Oldie99
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        yup this

  19. Roy Rovers

    Heaton
    Laporte. VVD. Digne.
    Salah. KDB. Perez. McGinn.
    Kane. Wilson. Wood.

      1. Roy Rovers
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Thanks ...way to improve.....not happy with Laporte.

  20. JJeyy

  21. Berbs

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

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Buy they got Maguire for a bargain 😉

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

      Would have been a strange career move for him.

      1. Berbs
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

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

  22. Oldie99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    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.

    ? ? ? ? ?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…

      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
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

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

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

    McGinn or Norwood as 5th non playing mid?

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

      I'd probably go Norwood just on disciplinary record

  27. Igor-Stimac
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Anyone doubling up with KDB and Sterling?

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

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

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

      Yes

  28. Punter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 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

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

        Ok, thanks

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 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
