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.

      Justin until Pereira is back or Leicester sign a natural left back.

      Mitchell until PVA is back, but haven’t seen much info on when that is so might be a few weeks.

      1. Bruce Lee

        This

    2. Camzy

      No. No. Yes until Pereira returns.

    Any ideas on what to do with 1.5M spare?

    McCarthy
    TAA, Doherty, Egan
    Auba, Son, Ziyech, ASM
    Werner, Ings, Mitro

    4m, Taylor, Bisouma, Mitchell

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

      We heard any injury news about Ziyech?

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Nope, I am monitoring though

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

      Keep for possible Son to Bruno in GW2 or Vardy (vs WBA) instead on Ings.

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

        Hadn't thought about Vardy, good call.

      2. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Funnily enough I took Vardy out for Ings 😆

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

          It's tricky, but I currently like the Vardy price-point - it's easy to go down to Werner/Martial/Jimi/Ings and pretty easy to go up to Kane or Aguero if it looks like they're firing. Also, his first 2 GW's are not the worst, so I've gone with him so far.

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

      Seems fine tbh.

      The only area I'd focus is Ziyech, I hear he may not start gw1 so possibly go for Havertz.

      1.5m spare is a nice problem to have, I assume you have a plan for united/city?

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        No concrete plan (i.e. x player out for x player) at the moment tbh, I would like some cash spare though

        Do you?

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

          Yes, Rashford on the bench and standard auba > kdb move. Made possible with a cheap front two of Mitro/DCL. (Maybe Wilson)

          Could spare up cash with TAA > Robbo and bring him back once fixtures swing.

      2. BENOIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Holding and Gabriel?

    4. Bumbaclot
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      No Liverpool attack home to Leeds first game is a massive risk

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Can't have them all, prefer Auba's opening fixtures

        1. Bruce Lee
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          And Auba's form

    5. ivantys
        1 month, 12 days ago

        If you're not interested in kane, then this draft is fine

    6. KujaliaFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      David Luiz has a neck injury.

      SALIBA! Get in there, my 4.5m beauty!

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

        For the first 2 GW's?

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

          For the first 15 gameweeks.

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

            Really?! Is it that bad?

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

        Don’t see why everyone is so attracted to arsenal defence tbh

        1. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          This!

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

          Because they conceded fewer goals last season than Chelsea, Burnley, Southampton, Everton, Crystal Palace, Brighton, West Ham, and Aston Villa.

          Do you have any defenders from those teams in your squad?

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

            With arteta their defensive stats are very far below average. Martinez on form saved them a lot of the time, won’t be the same this season imo

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

              Which five defenders are in your current draft?

              1. ZTF
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                Arsenal’s fixtures are good though are they.. and Saliba is far from nailed at this stage

                1. ZTF
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  aren’t* good

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

                  Not really.

                  The most difficult fixtures in there are City and Liverpool, and the Arsenal defence was quite resilient against them lately.

                  For example, the Arsenal beat City 2 nil.

                  1. ZTF
                    • 6 Years
                    1 month, 12 days ago

                    If you want someone in danger of rotation, with City, Liverpool, United and Leicester in their first 7 go ahead. But you can’t say ‘you have players from teams who conceded more last season’ as if that’s a completely sound argument!

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

                      That's the main point of my original post. He's less in danger of rotation with Luiz out injured.

                      Regarding other teams, it's to point out that the idea that the Arsenal is poor defensively is overstated. If you avoid Arsenal defenders because the Arsenal concedes goals and then pile in to Burnley or Chelsea defenders (who concede more goals than Arsenal defenders), that's nonsensical.

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

                      Charlie Taylor has worse fixtures for the first 7 than Saliba, by the way.

                    3. KujaliaFC
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 8 Years
                      1 month, 12 days ago

                      By the way (also) regarding fixtures, I have rotations going on in my defence. Saliba will probably be on my bench when his fixtures are worst.

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

          In a back 5 they're really solid tbf. Its when they go to a back 4 they give up all of their chances

      3. ivantys
          1 month, 12 days ago

          They have about 9-10 defenders taking 4-5 slots, their defence is most unpredictable out of all.

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

            Perhaps. I do believe that Luiz, Saliba, and Gabriel will be first choices, with perhaps Holding or Tierney taking one of the slots sometimes.

            Rotates extremely well with Dier among others. Arsenal look better defensively. A 4.5m starter will be very nice.

                Holding was going out on loan until Luiz got injured.

                Given that Arteta, not Twitter, picks the team, I'm including Saliba in my squad.

        Good to go?

        Any good?

        Ryan / 4.0

        Justin / Doherty / TAA / Mitchell / Taylor

        Auba / son / saint-maxi / Salah (4.5)

        Mitro / werner / Wilson

        I’ll get sterling or de Bruyne in for
        Salah gw2

        Have Wilson up front, no Southampton attack. 5.5 midfielder needed.

        A) ASM
        B) Spread the risk with Armstrong?

        Who to sign in midfield?

        A) Saka
        B) Armstrong

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Risking it on Saka. Kid is too good to drop. Great first two fixtures. Can always pivot after that.

        2. Bumbaclot
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Prefer Armstrong

        3. ZTF

          Armstrong. Fixtures + nailed, despite Saka obvs in a better side

        4. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          C) for me get a nailed JWP at 6.0

        Think im finally settled. Have soucek because he is fantastic value at 5.0 but if he misses gw1 i can just bench him and play 4 at the back

        McCarthy
        TAA Justin KWP

        1. steven8991

          Soucek to 4.5m and Justin to 5.0m

          1. xHaTr
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

            Nope. My way is better. 4.5 defenders are significantly better than 4.5 midfielders

            1. Mr. Mystic
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              Pretty identical to mine except I have Davies instead of Justin and Bissouma instead of Soucek

        15.5 to spend on a mid and striker, what do you prefer?

        A) Son & Wilson
        B) Pereira/JWP & Werner
        C) Mount/Barnes & Ings
        D) Anything else?

        Already own Kane, Greenwood & Soucek

          mad that Luiz can get injured an we're still none the wiser - probably does make a back 4 more likely (that might have been the case anyway), so does that bring Willian #10 into the equation?

        3. BENOIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Holding at 4.5?

            Really need to see whether he is nailed. I doubt he will be

        4. cuppatea78
          • 8 Years

          I need to free up £0.5m and currently have both Doherty and TAA.

          Which way would be best to free up the cash?

          A) Doherty & Robertson
          B) TAA & £5.5 defender
          C) Keep both TAA and Doherty but sell Jiminez to £8.0m striker

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

            B

          2. cuppatea78
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Or could also sell Armstrong for Soucek

            Downgrade Doherty to Dier/Davies and now you have 1m instead.

        5. Super Saints
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          If I plan to never have more than two Pool player's does it make sense to have Neco Williams first on bench for TAA no shows?

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            No. Because TAA even when not starting will come off the bench.

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Also, how do you not know that you won't want 3 Pool? If they start out strong and get some momentum, starting in GW6 they have SHU WHU mci LEI. I can easily see myself with double Pool defense or even Mane + Salah.

              1. ivantys
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  You have to remember too that defending champions never had it easy every season. Yes city still scored a lot last season but they also had more defeats than expected. I don't expect an easy ride for pool this time round.

            • 3 Years

            Think ill risk with this no bench at all wg1 how bad it is?

            Mcarthy, (Nyland)
            Taa, Kwp, Justin, Mithcell, Johnson
            Havertz, Salah, Mane, Auba, (Greenwood)
            Mitrovic, (4.5, 4.5)

            Gw2 Salah/Mane to Kdb

            1. Flaming Flamingo
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Johnson unlikely to start and Mitchell won't be a starter for long. I'd downgrade one of the 12m players and upgrade some cheapies

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

                Well one of them is kdb, i dont think i would like to sell Auba in 2 weeks for kdb like everyone is planing think Auba will be top scorer this season

            2. 2OLEgend

                Mane to Son could give you several decent upgrades to that team

                doherty to davies and soucek to 5.5m or havertz to Son

                1. cuppatea78
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  Only thing is Davis offers nothing but clean sheet (if Spurs ever keep one) where as Doherty has goals, assists and clean sheets in him.

                I think if you're not going to play Vinagre GW1 then don't bother with him. Looking like the manager doesn't rate him and will be out by the end of the transfer window. Probably won't even start GW1

                1. Reeker
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  But if you think Vinagre is going to start then you should play your wing back Wolves player

              Changed my team after 3 weeks of just waiting for the transfers to settle. This is what I landed on, pick apart my weaknesses (aka my forwards)

              Ramsdale - 4.0
              Walkers-Pieters - Doherty - TAA (Taylor - Mitchell)
              Saint-Maximin - Auba - Salah - Alli (Bissouma)
              Werner - Adams - DCL

                I actually think the balance is bang on.

              Why are so many picking Alli? I know he’s cheaper than Son but he’s hardly been prolific of late.

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

                He's been pretty good since Mou took over

                • 7 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                Placeholder for Chelsea mids once they get established

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                agree, I will definitely find extra 1.0m to have Son rather than Alli

              4. Reeker
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                I trust him more than I trust other people around that price

                • 1 Year
                1 month, 12 days ago

                Definitely prefer Son.

                Also it's much easier to swap him to a Chelsea mid than having to find the extra 0.5m to do Alli to Pulisic or Havertz.

              ASM or Mitro?

              1. CONNERS

                • 1 Year
                1 month, 12 days ago

                I think they each offer great value (and have both). Would probably pick Mitro of the two if I could have only one.
