How to Play Sky Sports Fantasy Football – A Beginner’s Guide

With the start of a new Premier League season moving ever closer, we switch our focus to Sky Sports Fantasy Football.

£50,000 is on offer to the game’s winner in 2020/21, with cash prizes of £5,000 and £1,000 dished out to those managers finishing in the other two podium places.

If you’re new to the Sky game or merely in need of a refresher of the rules and scoring system, we will go over the basics of the game in the article below.

HOW DO I PLAY?

Just like in Fantasy Premier League, managers select a team of players that will either earn attacking, defensive or bonus points in an attempt to score more than friends, colleagues and/or the rest of the world. However, this is not a squad-based game: you choose simply a starting XI and do not have a bench.

The budget, like in FPL, is £100m. There is no quota for players from the same club, however.

Game Weeks run from Friday to Thursday with managers allowed transfers in between Match Days, allowing the maximisation of potential points by bringing in an asset yet to play for one who has already been involved that week.

Instead of one free switch per Game Week as per FPL, the Sky Sports game allocates 40 transfers that can be used at any time during the season – with a limit of five in one Game Week – creating the need for a more long-term strategy.

‘Overhauls’ (the equivalent of Wildcards) are also available in Sky Sports, with two being allocated every season. The first one becomes available to use following the completion of Game Week 4 and remains an option until the deadline for Game Week 6. The dates for the second one will be announced in due course.

In the Sky Sports game, you can name more than one captain in a Game Week so long as the players in question are in action on different days. For example, if there were fixtures on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday in any given Game Week, a Sky Sports Fantasy manager could name a different skipper on each of those Match Days, providing they did so before that day’s deadline. Managers can also schedule their captains ahead of a Game Week, too.

HOW DO YOU SCORE POINTS?

The points structure is largely similar to FPL in Sky Sports Fantasy but tends to award more points for the actions mentioned below.

ActionPoints scored
Starting XI2
Substitution appearance1
Goal scored by a goalkeeper/defender7
Goal scored by a midfielder6
Goal scored by a striker5
Goal assist3
Clean sheet by a goalkeeper (must play 60+ mins)7
Clean sheet by a defender (must play 60+ mins)5
A penalty save by a goalkeeper5
Man of the Match3

CAN MY TEAM LOSE POINTS?

Unfortunately, just like in FPL there are a few ways to lose points too.

ActionPoints scored
Missing a penalty-3
Every goal conceded from the second goal onwards-1
Each yellow card-1
Each red card-3
Each own goal-2

HOW DO BONUS POINTS WORK?

Just like in FPL, there are additional points on offer for other events in matches – although the structure is slightly different, as you will see below:

Tier 1 ActionPoints scored
3 saves made (GK only)2
3 tackles won2
60 completed passes2
2 shots on target2
Tier 2 ActionPoints scored
5+ saves made (GK only)3
4+ tackles won3
70+ completed passes3
3+ shots on target3

HOW DO I PLAY AGAINST MY FRIENDS?

There are a number of different ways to compete against others in the Sky Sports game. You can create or join a Free League with your friends and colleagues but there are ways to win money too.

Sky Sports can actually administer your money league for you to avoid any awkwardness post-season. You can choose the entry fee (either £2, £5, £10 or £20 per person) and the prize structure beforehand and Sky Sports will take care of the rest.

          how's things? still not sure whether to play this year or not. really don't like what's happened to FPL recently.

              What’s happened?

                have you seen the player classification this year? beyond a farce.

                1. Bonuspunkte
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    I think I like it but only played last year so not really sure yet

                I thought it was ridiculous that Aubameyang and Rashford were classified as midfielders, but if you can look beyond that, the pricing has been quite decent this year. Forwards are finally a bit cheaper than the mid big hitters.

                It's reached a point where I'm going to play the game, regardless of how much they mess about with it 🙂

                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  The pricing has been very lazy imo. Bobby and Werner at 9.5 suggests they couldn't be bothered and just wanted to get the
                  game out as quickly as possible

                  1. Twisted Saltergater
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    Do you think? Firmino a regular in the Prem but lacks goals in the role he plays, while Werner is a more explosive prospect but new to the Prem so his price is lower to reflect that risk.

                    Meanwhile on FFS

                    ‘Why isn’t the game launched yet’
                    ‘Can they hurry up’
                    ‘Why is it taking so long’

                      Haha yer.

                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    I think exactly the opposite - generally the prices have been spot on.

                2. Parm
                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  I think the whole midfielders/forwards thing is getting out of fashion with the modern game. Salah/Mané/Aubameyang/Sterling are all forwards, really no debate about this tbh. Players like Richarlison & Jesus have played on the wing recently, why not have them as midfielders too? Or Firmino, who actually plays deeper than Salah/Mané? Bit of a mess, really.

                  1. Twisted Saltergater
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    I would have all those players you've listed as forwards, tbh. But then you have difficulty with players like Barnes and Perez... they're the equivalent of Mane and Salah, only worse.

                    1. Parm
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 1 day ago

                      Yeah, it's a poor classification system. The nature of the prices this year mean you need to have 2, 3 or even 4 slots for those premium midfield options(unless you like a Kun/Kane type), whereas in recent years you'd have to juggle between the top mids/forwards and balance was important.

                    Does it actually matter for fpl? We have to pick our teams from a pool of players and rules are same for everyone.

        2. davies
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Anyone else more interested in Rashford + Greenwood than Bruno this season?

          1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            o/

            1. davies
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              What’s the plan?

          2. Brosstan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            No

            1. davies
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Why not?

              1. Brosstan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                Because I think Bruno is essential and the two others arent

                1. davies
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Unsustainable. They won’t get as many pens this year surely

                  1. Brosstan
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 6 Years
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    Even without pens he is good value and they will keep getting pens for sure

          3. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            I think FPL towers have priced Rashford with the possibility of him playing through the middle if Martial gets injured.

            I can't see him being value at 9.5m wide left.

            1. davies
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              15g 10a is definitely possible this season providing he doesn’t break his back again

              1. Twisted Saltergater
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                Were they all from the left flank, do you know?

                1. davies
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Yes iirc and that’s his best position

              2. Parm
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                6 penalty goals last year that won't happen with Bruno around this year. Can't see him presenting much value.

                1. davies
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Correct but he’ll score more from open play with Bruno/Pogba/Greenwood around him

                  Last season he carried United until the injury

                  1. Parm
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    I really like Rashford as a player but I don't think he's a fantasy player at the moment, has lost his ruthless streak and is playing more and more like a winger/playmaker. Will keep an eye but can't see him scoring more than a greedier winger like a Son or Mahrez when they start.

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

                    He was awful since the restart, one of his goals was a penalty because the other players felt so bad about how terribly he was playing

                    1. davies
                      • 6 Years
                      2 months, 1 day ago

                      That must mean he’ll play terribly in the new season then yeah?

            2. MosF94
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 1 day ago

              His returns from the left were much more impressive than when up top last season

          4. Blandiblub
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Quite like Rashford - would've scored 229 points over 38 full, 90 minute appearances if not injured, and that was as a forward.

            Think Auba & Son > KDB (or Sterling) & Rashford.

          5. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Want all three of them plus Tony Gloves 🙁

          6. El Fenomeno R9
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Yes indeed,Sterling + Rashford over KDB + Bruno.

            Could be good could be disaster but chasing the puck

          7. MikeBravo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Yep, all three like Maximus said. Will all be better value than the 12m players and KDB, and score pretty close to the big hitters, or even match them...

        3. Stevecat
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Werner or firminho for the first game week?

            Vardy/Justin or nobody imo

            Can work if they click, same is the case with Vardy and their defense. Punt zone.

              I'd imagine if Lei score, he'll be involved. At that price I'm willing to take the punt.

                I like the Keita pick, I've got him too. Definitely worth a gamble for 3 gameweeks before getting Robertson in.

                Similar to mine. Still unsure whether to swap GKs to Ryan and Button, to avoid doubling up with KWP.

                GK: 8/10
                DEF: 8/10 - Saliba only concern there, for me.
                MID: 9/10
                ATK: 8/10 - Not sure on the value of Ings this year (without pens).

              Werner owners, if he doesn't start, or start but doesn't score or play well enough, will you keep him or switch to martial?

              I might bookmark this. 😉

                It's almost written in the stars that he blanks vs Brighton and is sold enmasse for Martial, before scoring a brace vs Liverpool.

                1. NABIL - 1 season 1der

                    I was thinking this a few hours ago. Switched to Kane cos we know he scores. Will return to Chelsea in GW4 when I can make 2FT and switch Kane/Son for Werner/Chelski mid flavour of the day

                Think about Ziyech before you take Werner. Timo will be #1, but Abraham must play some minutes, and Ziou had grrat end of the last season + EURO is this year and he is 1st striker in France. I dont need to tell u that Ziyech is cheaper 1.5m

                1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                  • 8 Years

                  Tell them. I'm not starting with the new che boys in gw1.

                    Oke...but i think that Ziyech is great pick

                    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 1 day ago

                      Yeah he has every chance to succeed. I prefer to wait and see

                  Giroud having Euro is not related surely?
                  Why would Lampard play him to ready him for France NT?

                I will do this, depends on preseason. If he looks good on the eye but doesn’t score I will keep but if he’s struggling to hit a barn door than I’ll get rid for a bit

                1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  If he looks good on the eye - regardless of minutes?

                Got to give a few weeks, surely? By all means sell him if he proves to be a dud but we must give the poor sod a chance. 🙂

                • 3 Years

                Start with Salah (coz u dont have any option) and at GW3 make decision

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 6 Years

                  This but I would look to get KDB from gw3

                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    This season is full of great players, and we cant colect them all...so go best team at GW1, give them a chance, and at GW3 make 1 or 2 free transfers

                    1. The Pesci challenge
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      Yeah I’m looking to save my transfer in gw2 to 3 to give myself a mini wc if needed

                        Interesting - thinking much the same.

                        Are you benching United in 1? Who?

                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  My plan start with Salah, Auba & Son, wk2 or 3 Auba & Son become two of KDB, Bruno or Sterling?

                  1. Z
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    Same plane here..same players. But if Auba, Salah or Son score goals, i will not swap them. I as i told you all- we cant have them all. So, for me, GW3 is decision weekend

                If there's anything essential, Salah in gw1. KDB in gw4

                I think I'll be going for sterling and salah from gameweek 3. Don't get the lack of hype for raheem.he finished the season really well and was hungry for goals.

              Thoughts on doubling up on TAA + Robbo from the start?

              1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                Could work. TAA is enough for me

              2. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                Not from the start imo. I'm a liverpool fan and I don't see many cleans to start with although they obviously have insane attacking threat. Will be looking to double up on wildcard but think that cheap defenders could do just as well over first 4 or 5.

                  So you have TAA VVD Robbi and Doherty?

                Was looking at this earlier you kind of need 2 x pool defenders because of TAA ownership

                pretty sure i'll have the double up, haven't even ruled out the triple up, for value and set-and-forgetability

                2 months, 1 day ago

                Trouble with just having TAA is that with his high ownership you may not get benefits of clean sheets so I think you probably do need to double up to maximise points gain

                I’m going to be starting with both.

                It’s like having 2 more midfielders with the potential of an extra 4 pts for a clean sheet...

                Want Greenwood and Bruno for Crystal P. Thinking Greenwood bench and money ITB for Son to Bruno. GW 2: Auba to KDB.

                McCarthy Steer
                TAA Vinagre Saliba Justin Ferguson
                Salah Son(Bruno) Auba(KdB) Greenwood Stephens
                Werner Mitrovic Brewster

                Any advice?

                  Depends. Prefer saliba to VVD and save the 1.5 for son to Bruno if son struggles but if son is good I’ll hold on that transfer as sons first 8 are very good

                Okay guys, how’re we looking?

                McCarthy (Steer)
                TAA | Vinagre | Justin (Taylor | Ferguson)

                Werner | Adams | Mitrovic
                0.5 ITB

                Will have placeholders for Greenwood / KDB in GW1, this is just my thinking for my go-forward team.

                  Are you planning on playing 2 at the back? The only one I can possibly see playing out of those is Ferguson but you’d be very limited.

                    Yes, hope Doherty and TAA and random luck for some of the 4.0 will do it...

                      Dohery into Vinagre or Dier and u can upgrade yr def with 1.5 or 1m

                      1. Bleh
                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 1 day ago

                        Agree with this. Hopefully Vinagre can cover Doherty for a few weeks, albeit with less attacking threat.

                  I think Douglas is going to Celtic. That's what Leeds fan rumours are anyway.

                              B rather keep son

                              Prefer B and also you might need to switch saliba.

                              Arsenal are signing Gabriel and I can't see them both starting straight away, given Gabriel is actually Artetas signing and is more experienced he may get more game time.

                            I have a feeling we’ll be scrambling around to get Vardy in our teams in GW2...

                                + 42.

                              he'll have some weeks where he scores well, but i think he's had his time in my teams, probably on the edge of decline considering his age, and Leicester were really poor second half of last season

                              Could be but I think there’s too many mids to cover vardy this time around and it’ll be harder to jig your team to get him. I think Leicester will struggle this season with Europe as well. Squads too small

                              forgetting price, Kane or Werner for first few weeks of season?

                                Deoebds whether you will have Son/Ziyech/Puli

                                  won't have any of them, mids will be couple of Auba/Salah/Bruno/KDB plus cheapies

                                    Kane then

                                Kane for me, finding that 1m in my team is nigh on impossible though

                                1. SAY MY NAME
                                  • 3 Years

                                  same issue for me, i need a set and forget option for a few weeks as won't have internet access and although Kane will surely disappoint me as always, at this point we don't know about Werner in the PL or his minutes, looks good potential though

                              Found the team I want from GW2 onwards

                              Ryan
                              TAA | Vinagre | KWP | C.Taylor
                              KDB | Auba | Pulisic | B.Fernandes | Son
                              Mitro

                              Button | Ferguson | Davies | Wickham

                              Worth to WC in GW2 for it?

                                I get it but you need another forward there

                                1. Lucky Z
                                  • 3 Years
                                  2 months, 1 day ago

                                  Can dsomething like Son + 4.5 => ASM + 8.0 etc if Mitro will not work

                              Anyone else considering the plan of no hits that aren’t related to double or blank gameweeks? Hits really ruined me last season and seemed I was constantly chasing points to the extent that I’m completely off them. Has anyone tried it and has it worked for you?

                              1. No Professionals

                                Hits are fine used in the correct manner. I knew I needed to get aubameyang for Norwich and sterling for Brighton as captains but I refused to take the hit.

                                I did no hits last season. Would like to do the same again this new season.

                                I'm rubbish at taking hits, although I do tend to remember the occasions it burnt me such as selling KDB and Fernandes in the last few weeks of the season. 🙂 tend to do better when I am more patient and plan my team but aggressive hits to get good captain options can really pay off
