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.

    Ok here it is due to popular demand..

      This the template right? Decent

        Far from

        1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Not far from, you have Kane + KDB, the template has Wilson + Sterling. That's the only difference

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

            The template has Wilson AND king? Also can the template captain Kane?

      2. Chilli Heatwave
        • 2 Years

        Close enough to everything I’ve seen

        1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          This

      3. Too Many Hits
        • 2 Years

        Moura and Kane not overkill?

        Moura > Fraser or Kane >Auba

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

          Nope.. Moura to Everton mid GW2 or GW4. Kane will be a linchpin in the absence of Sterling

          1. Too Many Hits
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Would it not make more sense to go from Fraser > Everton Mid GW3

    2. Saint & Reevesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Solid

    3. Chazz69

      Very nice

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

      Hard to argue. Lots of tough calls (Stones over Zinc, Pool defenders, Moura vs 7.5s) but no obvious answer.

  3. simong1
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Which of the below teams do you think is the most flexible? A with Kane as a premium forward price point but a weakened defence and mid (Barkley) or B with a stronger defence and mid but no premium forward price point?

    A
    Pope (Button)
    Robbo, VVD, Zinchenko, Dunk, Catchcart (Rotating 4.5s)
    Sterling, Salah, Perez, Barkley (Dendoncker)
    Kane, King (Greenwood)

    B
    Pope (Button)
    Robbo, VVD, Zinchenko, Digne (Lundstram)
    Sterling, Salah, KDB, Perez (Dendoncker)
    Jota, King (Greenwood)

  4. Andrew

    Arsenal should take £30m for Iwobi!!

    1. Silent Friend

      Lol

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

      Would be good business all round. Means you guys can get upamecano over the line then oh wow what a window. Then pray spurs can’t get all their superstar links completed and then you are serious contender for 3rd or even 2nd

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

      Oh my Giddy Aunt!

  5. jata9
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Atm draft

    Ederson (Button)

    TAA-Laporte-Robbo (Lundstram, Hanley)

    Sterling-Barkley-Perez-Salah (Dendoncker)

    Jota-Kean-King

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

      I like it. I like a gamble and I have keen as well. Jota is the one I wouldn’t have but good overall.

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

      Kean is an obvious risk but should return if given the first few weeks. Strong defence although I'm personally happy to do downgrades like Robertson & Laporte to VVD & Zinchenko. Perez is very popular but my gut says no. Jota may struggle considering Wolves' Europa League involvement and not particularly inviting fixtures - I prefer Wood. A good team, just clearly with different opinions to my own; no major changes needed, just some food for thought for you. Good luck! 🙂

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

    Planning to start with KWP in a 4-4-2 and then switch to 3-5-2 / 3-4-3.

    A) Wesley (BOU, EVE, cry, WHU), with Dendonker second sub after KWP

    B) Robinson + 0,5 ITB (CRY, LEI, che, SOU), with Greenwood second sub after KWP

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

      Both are nice punts. Think I prefer Wesley.

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

    Lamela gmw 1 as an alternative to Barkley or Trossard 6.0?

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

      Could be great!

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

      Unless they sign all these mad men

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

      Not a fan of picking players for one week at any point in the season, but could pay off.

    4. Skloppy Kops
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      He's high on my watchlist.. bt still not convinced

  8. pressdpm
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Any thoughts on this?

    Pope - Button
    TAA - VVD - Zinchenko - Kelly - Digne
    Salah - Sterling - Tielemans - Sigurdsson - Hayden
    Wilson - Jota - Greenwood

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

      Kelly unlikely to feature with Cahill in place?

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

      Very nice. Prefer King to Jota and I'm steering clear of Leicester, but otherwise we're the same.

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

    4.5 Mids outside of Dendonker for reliable minutes and potential ?

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

      Hayden?

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

      We will be here all day if someone actually thinks of one.

    3. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Hayden, one of the Norwich boys could be good but it is unclear which one 😀

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

        McClean but he chops and changes his CDMs for fun does Farke

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

      So no one is viable outside of Dendonker

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

        If you want to be blunt about it

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

      Hayden if he stays. Guendouzi if Unai plays a three and correctly drops Xhaka.

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

      I’m not so sure Dendonker‘s minutes will be reliable after Lemina’s signing.

      1. THE WERNER DELUSION
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        That is actually a good point, kinda missed that move

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

        Unlikely to happen reliable reports say

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

          What do the reports say?

  10. Rhodes your boat
    • 4 Years

    Downgrade mousset and defence to get vardy for haller?

    Heaton

      All hail Lord Haller he of greatness. Stick.

      The only doubt I'd have is AWB vs cheaper def and Mousset to 6m

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Who would you recommend

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

    Anyone like this draft?

    Heaton - (McGovern)
    Trent - Van Dijk - Digne - Dunk - (Lundstram)
    Sterling - Lucas - Pérez - (Dendoncker) - (Nakamba)
    Aubameyang - Firmino - Wilson

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

      I like it.

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

      Personally I think KDB can cover Sterling better than Firmino can cover Salah

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

      like it cause it differs from the 'template' most People have. Strong attack, a bit weak midfield but good defence. Good Luck!

    How many games will he get do you reckon ?

      1. Ask Yourself

        Same

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Depends if Aurier goes?

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

        I suspect Poch is done with Aurier.

        1. Noah’s Ark
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Why?

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

            I think Poch feels Foyth is a better option than Aurier.

            1. Noah’s Ark
              • 8 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              I do too. Foyth is out though so why do you think Aurier is less likely than KWP.

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

                I think TOT will move Aurier. Should know soon.

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

      Until Foyth recovers.

    4. Noah’s Ark
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Foyth ruled out until mid September but I don’t know if it will be him or Aurier that gets the nod.

      1. Nico.
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        He’s only back in training in September, likely another month or so before he starts.

    What would you do with 1m itb?
    I was thinking of

    A:leaving itb to do Ings to Kean/Abraham later on
    B: Coleman + Zinch to Digne + Walker
    C: one of B + Barkley to Perez

    Lloris
    TAA VVD Coleman Zincheko
    Salah Sterling Martial Barkley
    Wilson Ings

  14. billnats

      In my current draft over Jota due to EL stuff.

      Considered Wood as well but in GW5 it's an easy move if Troy lasts that long.

        I brought him in last year for the Arsenal RC but forgive and forget eh.

      Think he is the best 6,5m option for first 4 GW.'s : BHA(h) - EVE(a) - WHU(h) - NEW(a). Got to be a couple of penalties in there !

      Mousset

      I am confused why they signed him for so much tbh. Must be a reason but all of the above are better. Mousset is the only player in their squad not from the UK fun fact :O

          No one mate. Wasteland. Any striker below 6m is not nailed. May aswell choose wickham. May be only substitute minutes but it will be as much as you’ll get from 5.5m downwards and save yourself a mil

          Not a fan just read about it a lot and studied their pre season and last year’s games x

          5212 set up like this (with how I expect them to line up GW1

          Robinson Mccgoldrick
          Freeman
          Fleck Norwood

          Wilder rotates strikers so much but yes it is true you can get excited about OOP Robinson

    Zaha to Everton looks more and more likely to not happen.. Zaha is furious but the Eagles won’t sell him for less than £100,000

    What are you guys thoughts on this 3-4-3?

    Pope/4.0
    VVD/Robbo/Digne
    Salah/Perez/Sterling/Fraser
    Adams/Wilson/Jota

    Dunk/Dendoncker/Lundstrom

    Thanks!

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

      That's a decent team. Obviously Adams is a weak point and Pope is an uncertain starter for week 1 but the recent look ok. I'd rather see Tielemans in there instead of Perez (always too lightweight for me) and perhaps upgrade Adams?

    I’ve found myself with 6.0 max to spend on a playing midfielder. Thoughts are
    A) Barkley
    B) Trossard
    C) Grealish
    D) back to the drawing board
    Sorry not great options ...

    1. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      B

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

        I was thinking this too. He’s played well in pre season and is their record signing surely he’ll play

    2. Arsenal97
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      If Barkley plays he is the one .if not i think Grealish is a safer option

    Suggestions please everyone, how to improve this (0.5 banked):

    Ryan / Button
    Robertson / VVD / Azpilicueta / Dunk / Kelly
    Salah / De Bruyne / Perez / Doucoure / Dendoncker
    Kane / Jota / King

    Kane draft - any comments appreciated

    Pope (Button)

    Salah Sterling Pérez Barkley (Dendoncker)
    Kane King (Greenwood)

    1. sumatera
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      About as good as you can get it
      In going with Vardy

    2. Crossbar
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I have a draft of a similar team but
      Greenwood --> Jota (playing)
      Sterling --> De Bruyne
      Barkley --> Doucoure
      TAA --> Robertson
      Montoya --> Dunk (not playing)
      Lundstram --> Kelly

      I think it's better overall but open to persuasion

  29. Morbius
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Ederson (4.0)
    Coleman / VVD / AWB (Kike Fem / Kelly)
    Salah / Sterling / Martial / Holjberg (Dendonker)
    Kane / King (Long)

    Nothing ITB but there's obvious wiggle room there.
