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.

    Right going with this for now;

    GW 2; Mane/Salah to Bruno and/or Werner to Martial

    McCarthy
    TAA Davies Justin
    Salah ASM Mane Soucek (A)uba
    Werner Mitro

    Nyland Mitchell Davies Bernardo

    2. Big Hippo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      V similar to mine (see below) so I'm a fan. Although Justin might lock you into a defensive transfer at some point.

  2. Big Hippo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Ok think I'm going to land on:

    McCarthy (4.0)
    TAA - Saiss - Davies (C.Taylor, 4.0)
    Salah - Auba - Mane - ASM - Soucek
    Ings - Mitro (4.5)

    Plan to do Mane & Soucek to Rashford & Greenwood GW2. Yes it's a -4 but I think it could be worth it.

    Any thoughts greatly appreciated! Cheers

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      Soucek may not be able to play GW1

        Haha I was on this before :). It's why I was so sure yours added up to 100.5 LOL

    Last season I didn’t start choosing my team until around now, a few days before deadline. Didn’t think about it whatsoever until then. I much prefer that approach. Easy develop a lot of biases and allegiances to certain players over weeks of tinkering that clouds your judgement.

    1. GRIMANDI [formerly boring M…

      Yep, plus whats the point when less information to go on transfers in for clubs performance in friendlies etc.... Did make me laugh when i saw people putting RMTs up before the fixture lists were announced. Shows how much it means to people i guess, also boredom

    2. Evasivo
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Agreed, too much movement, unknowns and BS. I made my first draft yesterday and that's only because i'm away this weekend Fri-Sun 😮

    3. Gazza2000

      Like the pre-season tinkering though, daily transfers without hits 😆

  4. Silecro
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Would you rather start the season with Armstrong or Mitrović ?
    Southampton is in better form, more attacking, but i somehow find it easier to move from Mitrovic to another attacker than Armstrong (already have ASM) ..and there is always chance for some penalty for Mitro, while most of SOU goals will come from Ings or Che

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Tbh, I don’t like either pick, but if I had to choose one then it has to be Mitrovic since he is guaranteed minutes.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Armstrong is a great pick.

    When do we think Ferguson will recover from injury? he seems to be the most long term nailed 4.0?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years

        sorry for the delay

        Johnstone (Button)
        TAA KWP Dier (Mitchell, Taylor)
        Kai Mo Auba Saka Soucek

    3. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Kai at 8.5 allows you to move to Pulisic quite quickly if he goes on another of his runs...

    4. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Kai won't start. Only Werner will.

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I’m not so sure Havertz won’t start; esp if Ziyech doesn’t make it.

    5. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Havertz or Pulisic when fit

    6. stat sifter 888888
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Wait until Ziyech or Pulisic comes back from injury, Kai is too fresh.

    7. Vikram Solanki
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      RMT - it's a bit different, but I like it

      McCarthy - Nyland
      TAA - Dier - Saiss - Justin - Mitchell
      Salah - Auba - Son - ASM - Bissouma
      Werner - DCL - Adams

      1. ZimZalabim
        • 4 Years

        how is it different ?

        This is as template as it gets

        2. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          DCL is different

        3. stat sifter 888888
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Not actually template Zimizalabim, Mitro for Adams and DCL inclusion.

      2. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        A) Son+Davies (would do Son to Rashford gw2)
        B) Alli+Doherty

        1. Mayor of Flair
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          B

          1. Iceball
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Maybe Alli to Greenwood or Salah to Bruno

        2. Big Hippo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Pretty close. What does B mean for Utd cover?

      3. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Tough call for me.

        A) Zaha + DC-L

        Or

        B) JW-P + Richarlison

        1. stat sifter 888888
            1 month, 12 days ago

            I am also scared of Rich's talent being hard to stop. Personal feeling is that DCL should at least be very close to him as furthest up the field. I went for Barnes instead of Zaha but I would suggest A.

        2. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Would be tempted by Maupay.

          Brighton for once haven’t gone stupid in the transfer market and are looking nicely settled. Settled teams attract me and Brighton offer more in offence than defence imo

          Wrinkle is Maupay looks nailed (for Potter) apart from in top 6 encounters at home looking at last season.

          Any Brighton fans around with thoughts on likely line up? If Maupay doesn’t play what’s the plan?

          1. ZimZalabim
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            he is one of the worst finishers Ive ever seen, will want to sell as soon as u own him and wonder why on earth u bought him in the first place

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Wilson and Mitro are also lousy finishers 😀

          2. Big Hippo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            100% Maupay starts, unless a striker comes in before the end of the deadline. He'll either start with Connolly or with 2 AMs. Think he was only rotated during the restart due to fixture congestion. Probably no longer on pens after miss v Lei and in the Chelseas friendly though

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Took a look at his benchings last season and after the first couple they all pretty much fell in matches against City Liverpool and United iirc Wondering if there was a pattern to how Potter rotated.

              Do like the look of Brighton this time. Smart work in transfer market by doing not very much! Stability is a big plus in my book when there’s nothing intrinsically wrong with the team.

              Speaking as a Palace fan who started last season confident - rightly as it turned out

            2. Klaren
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              He wasn't only rotated during the fixture congestion. He started 2 back to back games on the bench on February along with a few others throughout the season. So no, it's not 100% that Maupay starts.

          3. ameisin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Tbh I can't see us scoring enough for it to be worth it. Maupay is better at winding people up than getting goals and I think Potter will still rotate.

            Pre-season has been lots of possession & little penetration, so I'd imagine low-scoring games.

            That said, he'll probably hit form now...

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 12 days ago

              GI high though?

              At that price bracket I’m not expecting much.

            • 6 Years

            Decent option but 0.5 overpriced for me

          5. stat sifter 888888
              1 month, 12 days ago

              They don't offer much going forward and may not match some other options around that price range. Still better shout than Mitro imo.

                Really nice tbh

                Would follow you but all that at the back just isn’t my play style

                  Thanks. Yeah it's a bit heavy at the back, but still allows for big hitters as cpt choices and one of the Chelsea Mids from gw3. I just think Robbo has played really well recently and involved more in set pieces, despite pool faltering and could well have another 200+ season.

                    It’s the sort of set up I’m looking at from GW9 on when Liverpool and City both get a major fixture turn. Prefer a bit more flexibility in the middle and up top while things shake down.

                    I’ll likely just over transfer of course 🙂

                      Yeah Arsenal and Chelsea in the first 3 is not great, but I still think pool could get 4 cs in first 7 if Allison stays fit this time! Yeah that makes sense with the flexibility, I already have in my mind so many planned transfers, at least with a set and forget backline it's less to worry about. Never goes to plan though! Good luck!

                    It’s one of those squads that looks over the 100m, which is always a good sign

                I think so. Know Everton are in the market for a RB though, Arias been rumoured.

                  Haven’t got that far yet haha

                  No I had Greenwood Adams instead of ASM Ings before, as prep... do you think that’s better?

                That 0.5 in the bank makes Bissouma become Soucek. Can even be benched for a week if he misses gw1

                  In Brightons last pre season game Walton wasn't on the bench but the other 2 back up keepers were, Steele and Sanchez. Is he injured? I have him and Ryan.

                  1. Big Hippo
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 12 days ago

                    He came off in the friendly v Chelsea. Should be 'weeks' rather than months according to the club. Might see Steele or Sanchez added to the game after GW1 if Walton doesn't make the bench

                  New draft without Salah, think this gives me a lot of good value players:
                  McCarthy
                  TAA KWP Justin (Ayling Mitchell)
                  Auba Son Havertz Rodriguez (Bissouma)
                  Werner Wilson Ings

                  0.5 itb for Ings -> Martial in GW2 and Auba becomes KDB in GW3.

                    Just looked at J Rods stats on soccerway. I have very little free time for watching foreign football but the boy scores goals regardless of him not kicking on from his WC performance. I think he will probably benefit from being a big fish in a little pond also. Bit like for Columbia back in the day

                      7.5 is very tempting. Especially if Greenwood has to isolate and can't make GW2

                    Wolves first 7 look like 4-5 clean sheets minimum - surprised there aren't more double ups
