How to Play Fantasy Premier League – 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 now 90 minutes before the kick-off time of the first fixture. Normally that’s at 11.00am 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 not a bad idea to roughly 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 28th, 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 line-ups and offer clues on which players have their place under threat at any given time, as well as those players coming into form.

    Thought everyone here would be all about Foden this morning with B. Silva injured?

    6.5m surely fine to bench GW1?

    1. bigbudgie
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Too many players can come in for B Silva who plays all over the shop, no garuntee its Foden

    2. LangerznMash
      • 4 Years

      Torres could debut.

      Don’t arsenal have about 9 defenders on their books though

  3. balint84
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Who will start from these?

    Vinagre, Lascelles, Justin? All?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Lascellas is sure

      Justin also has good chance

    2. JT11fc
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Justin Lascelles

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Vinagre looks like he is leaving

    4. MARVELLUS
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I have Lascelles, Justin a risk

  4. MoSalalalalalalalalah
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Which Wolves defender is the best? Nervous that Sass is not 100% nailed

    1. Respect My Authoritah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I have the 3 CBs at the moment

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Very bold, but could prove to be a good choice.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Boly, Coady

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Coady and Boly are 100% Saiss is 90%

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Who you think is the best of those 3?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Boly - a bit more goal and BPS potential than Coady for 0.5 more. Saiss should be worth the risk but is a YC magnet

          Boly Saiss Coady is my order or preference

          1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Alright gotchu, thanks man

  5. bigbudgie

    comment welcome and I would like to be knighted also

    McCarthy 4.0
    TAA Doherty Saiss KWP Mitchell
    Auba Son Ziyech Soucek 4.5
    Werner Vardy Wilson

    Wilson could be Mitro or Wood

    Any better combo than Ziyech/Soucek for 13 million?

    1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Different, I like it a lot.

      1. bigbudgie

        Thank you Maximin

      Soucek May miss first GW

      1. bigbudgie

        annoying

    4. Machine_Gunnerz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I'm really considering bringing in Wilson. How would you rate him in this Newcastle set-up and the games coming ahead?

      1. bigbudgie
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        well I wouldn't be considering him if I didn't think he had a chance of doing well...

        1. Machine_Gunnerz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 14 days ago

          obvious...but why

          1. bigbudgie
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Newcastle had a good finish to last season and seem to have some continuity under Bruce, Wilson is proven premier league goalscorer and providing he gets chances he'll score a few, and his old partner in crime Ryan Fraser will do that for him along with ASM, whu BRI at the start of the season to test the theory....

            1. Machine_Gunnerz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 14 days ago

              sweet. Thanks buddy. If he fit and running, he will start ahead of Joelinton. Just did the switch from Mitro to wilson 🙂 but likely drop ASM.

              1. bigbudgie
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 14 days ago

                Don't get me wrong, it's a punt, but yes I'm sure he goes in as first choice now

                mitrovic is safer I think

    5. MARVELLUS
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Like it a lot, would wait and see with Ziyech

    6. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      This is what I’ve just put together for contrast. Close but slightly different

      Mc
      TAA Doh Keane KWP (Taylor)
      Auba Son Havertz Zaha (Bissouma)
      Vardy Ings (Davis)

      Think Everton defence should be solid and gave good fixtures. Extra 4.5 there to avoid double up in poor fixtures.

      Don’t see Ziyech will play. Prefer Havertz as direct threat anyway may. I might just turn Zaha into a 6.0 or Wilson.

      Would like Soucek but people are talking about mutiny at WH - avoiding even if he’s available

      1. bigbudgie
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I like this, and similar thoughts about Ziyech/Havertz, and not sure on WHU like you say. No Werner though? Worried Chelsea might become like City, rotation ahoy and impossible to predict line ups.

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Think people are piling into Werner assuming he’s always central. My understanding is that he’s out wide a fair bit - not unlike Auba a CF who doesn’t necessarily stay central. Havertz also swaps around a lot. My guess is that the front 3 will interchange a fair bit which makes Havertz a decent call - if he starts!

          1. bigbudgie
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            I've just been looking into this cause I don't know much about them. I honestly think I might start with Mount.

      2. The Knights Template
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Will consider cash for knighthood....whoops did I say that out loud?

  6. The Legend Squad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    A) Is Justin a starting player for Leicester?

    B) Get Taylor and play Mitchell first week as cover?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      B

  7. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    GW1 punt:

    A) Tierney (ful) double with Leno
    B) Boly (shu) double with Saiss

    1. MARVELLUS
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      A

    2. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      B

    3. unlethal
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      A, even if Arsenal don't get a clean sheet Leno can get save points and Tierney can get assists

  8. Siva Mohan
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Chelsea players - Penalties (overall)

    Jorginho - 20/21
    Kai - 13/13
    Werner - 13/16
    Ziyech - 13/19

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Clearly will be between Kai or Werner, hope it’s Kai and then he will quickly enter the captaincy conversations

    2. ivantys
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I fancy werner to take if jorginho doesn't start, otherwise sadly jorginho should be first choice.

    3. Giggs Boson

      Nice of FFS to write an article just for Nightcrawler.

      1. Siva Mohan

        😀

      2. Siva Mohan

        #BeginnersRanksMatter

    4. MARVELLUS
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Was set on this but concerned with having a 4.5m striker and a 4.0m defender:

      Ryan/McCarthy
      TAA Coady B Davies (Lascelles, Mitchell)
      Salah Auba Son(+1.5m for Bruno GW2) ASM Soucek
      Mitro Werner (Davis/Brewster)

      Should I:
      1) Stick
      2) Take out Soucek/Werner/Davis for Bissouma/Jimenez/Che Adams?

      2) Has more balance, let's me wait and see for Chelsea assets, but means NO WERNER! So more sensible, but one less captaincy option...

    5. Right In The Stanchion
        1 month, 14 days ago

        David Luiz looking like he’s out for a while. Tierny likely to play in a back 3. Might not start with him...

        1. Shatner's Bassoon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Could make Saliba more of an option early on. Good defensive fixtures if you can get the rotation right.

          1. MARVELLUS
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Saliba would be straight in my team if I knew he would start

        2. Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Luiz out means Saliba's an option, right?

        3. ivantys
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Which means arsenal actually for once looks likely to get clean sheets.

        4. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Is Wilson added to the game?

          1. Siva Mohan
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            6.5

            1. Holmes
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              Woah, nice

          • 2 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Over the whole season and if money was no object (draft league question), would you go:

          A) Matheus Pereira
          B) Saint-Maximin

          1. ivantys
              1 month, 14 days ago

              A will play more games and minutes than B for sure, I don't like west brom's strikers so I would go for B to score more points.

            • The Knights Template
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              A

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              B is a much better option now Wilson and Fraser are in the ranks

            1 month, 14 days ago

            First year playing draft, is it looking okay? Not sure i've added all new to the league players. Should be forward biased am i right? Will be 6-8 players in the league.

              Tested negative - isolation ends today. Should be in training from tomorrow, but not sure if that's enough for him to go straight into starting. My guess would be on the bench this week.

            Mates who do you think is the best asset to hold for first 5 GWs?

            1) Robertson
            2) James Rodriguez
            3) DCL
            4) Greenwood (bench GW1)

            Cheers!

              My head says Robertson, my heart says DCL.

              Neither my head nor heart are reliable though.

                I am leaning towards Robertson yeah, but have a feeling that James can positively surprise

                  For sure, he's one to watch.

                  DCL though should benefit from a better team around him. Got a good feeling about him.

                Feels the safest one I would say.

                However GW2 ans GW3 are theoretically difficult

            "In order to maintain a balance in your squad, it is not a bad idea to roughly split your budget evenly across the four different positions: goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and forwards."

            Good luck spending as much on your midfield as on your goalkeepers!

              I find it easy to spend at least 8.5 on my midfield personally!

            Thoughts on this team guys? any suggestions?

              Similar to mine, I have Bruno instead of Kane, looks good. Mine is above if you have a minute....

            Ryan
            TAA/Davies/Egan/KWP

            Current midfield:
            Auba, Son, Zaha, Soucek, ASM

            Worth finding someone to replace Soucek (who), or play 4 at the back gw1?

            Is going with two 4.0 defenders too dangerous? I have TAA, Doherty and Egan.

              Risky with Doherty being one of your nailed three

            Hey guys, really struggling to pick between these 2 combos. Which do you think is better?

            A) Kane + Adams
            or
            B) Son + Ings

            A) Davies + Boly
            B) Davies + Saliba

              None of them, besides Wilson, are really nailed

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 14 days ago

                Don't care, at the price range I'm happy for them to drop to the bench for the occasional game. Highly unlikely that there will be a game week where more than 2 of them don't play.

            Salah has been nailed in my team so far, but can we make a case of going without him? His pre-season form has been bad, the only game you'd really want him for at the beginning is GW1 vs Leeds (in which I think Auba is a better captain option) and a lot of people are planning to get rid of him for either Bruno or KDB/Sterling in GW2 or 3 anyway.
            I'd like to hear your thoughts and plans with Salah?

            1. Siva Mohan
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              Salah @ home is captain material

              GW2 against CHE ain't bad as we are yet to sort our defense

              1. TONY123
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 14 days ago

                Yes he is but Leeds are by far a better side than Fulham and Auba has been bagging braces in pre-season

            2. Mayor of Flair
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              Ya I've turfed him out, thanks for the memories Mo.

              Team is a lot better without him. For 12m you want to be smashing them in on the reg.

              I dont think that salah will have a season worth 12 mio. I have him in my team but i plan to change him to bruno in gw2 and use the 1.5 for another Transfer in gw3. My plan will miss he scores more than 10 points in gw1.

              Been in since start and not going anywhere. Love that people are binning him. Among best assets in the game and has had a price discount.

                Never had him in a single draft this pre-season.

              I have moved to not having him. Gone 3 x pool def and better front 3 with the cash.

                That could be one hell of a differential. But Liv fixtures look tough for clean sheets.

              Bruno on the bench and that 1.5M was really influential elsewhere.

            If Saliba & Tyrick Mitchell actually play you can get an opening 6 game rotation of:

            SOU - WHU - EVE - SHU - BRI - ful/LEI

            Was there a reason why Rob Holding started over Saliba in the Shield?

            Saliba was an unused sub.

              It is a worry for the Saliba selection, however haven't Arsenal offered Holding out on loan to clubs?

            Buur or Mitchell

            Is Saliba better than Saiss or Davies, or neither?

            Pulisic: "injury isn't a big concern, but the concern is more surrounding quarantine and having enough time to get up to match fitness (Matt expects him to be in the starting 11 for Brighton)."

            Werner: "Everyone is absolutely amazed by him, hearing just how incredible he has looked, everyone is excited for him, thinks he will start down the middle but Chelsea want to deploy a more fluid front three to cause trouble in all areas."

            Puli back, Werner looking great, let's go!
