FPL points projections: Salah and De Bruyne lead the way in Double Gameweek 36

Our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) points projections for Gameweeks 36-38 are available to read for Premium Members of Fantasy Football Scout.

These have been freshly updated after Friday’s press conferences to take into account any injuries and rotation risks.

With two matches in Gameweek 36 and a rest already out of the way last weekend, it’s little surprise to see Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) topping the list of projected scores for the week.

As for the premium battle elsewhere, it’s Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) – another to have warmed the bench in Gameweek 35 – who leads the way, with the Tottenham Hotspur duo of Son Heung-min (£11.0m) and Harry Kane (£12.4m) further down the list.

Subscribers can see the players heading the points projections tables for both this upcoming Gameweek and the following two in the images below but you can get the full picture by clicking here.

You can even get a breakdown of the points, from attacking returns to clean sheets, by clicking here.

Our Rate My Team tool, meanwhile, can give you an approximation of how many FPL points your own team will score over a series of Gameweeks. We’ve more details on this below.

GAMEWEEK 36: FPL POINTS PROJECTIONS

GAMEWEEKS 36-38: FPL POINTS PROJECTIONS

WHAT IS RATE MY TEAM?

Rate my Team (RMT) is a tool designed to give you an approximation of how many FPL points your team will score over a series of Gameweeks. This takes into account captaincy, vice-captains and automatic substitution points.

WHAT ARE PROJECTIONS?

Projections come in two forms – Season Projections and Six-Gameweek Projections (SGP).

Season projections show algorithm-generated predictions for every FPL player. This includes goals, assists, clean sheets, minutes played, bonus points, yellow cards and, most importantly, FPL points.

SGP shows algorithm-generated predictions for every player’s FPL points in each of the next six Gameweeks, calculating their points per million value over this period. These numbers are the same numbers as the ones used in RMT.

HOW ARE THE VALUES FOR RATE MY TEAM AND PROJECTIONS CALCULATED?

The values are generated by an algorithm that uses both current and historical data. There is also constant human monitoring so that the model can respond quickly to news, injuries or tactical changes that otherwise the algorithm may underestimate.

We do this to generate the best values with as little bias as possible.

HOW DO I LOAD MY TEAM INTO RMT?

To load your team into RMT, you need to type in your FPL ID.

If you can’t find your FPL ID, instructions on how to find it are on the Rate My Team page.

WHAT DO XM AND ADJP MEAN?

Placing the cursor over a player’s predicted FPL points in a Gameweek will show an xM score and an adjP score.

xM stands for expected minutes – It’s the number of minutes the algorithm is predicting a player to have. Note that this isn’t an exact Gameweek specific prediction but rather an average number of minutes. Therefore, while a player might be expected to play 90 minutes, their xM will be lower since there’s a chance they might miss the game or get substituted.

adjP is the expected points – how many points the algorithm predicts a player will score in the week if they were to play 90 minutes.

Both of these values combine to generate a final score.

WHY DOES RMT SAY TO START A PLAYER WITH A LOWER PREDICTED SCORE THAN A SECOND PLAYER?

Usually, this occurs because the algorithm predicts that a player (usually a goalkeeper) will either play the full game or won’t feature at all.

Player A – High adjP, very low xM – Low RMT score

Player B – Medium adjP, very high xM – Medium RMT score

Whilst Player A is unlikely to play, the most common scenarios is that they’ll either be given 90 minutes or none at all. Therefore, RMT thinks it’s worth starting him to make use of the high adjP if he plays, otherwise the safer option of Player B will autosub in.

Therefore it suggests picking Player A over B, despite the former appearing to score lower on RMT. 

WHEN DO UPDATES HAPPEN?

While there’s no fixed update timetable, it is pretty much continuous.

Monday tends to have a big update after the weekend’s events. Thursday and Friday will have updates in the evenings following any news that emerges from pre-match press conferences.

CAN I SEE A FULL LIST FOR ALL PLAYERS IN RMT?

You can find the complete list here. It can also be found by clicking the “Players” option in the sub-menu under “Rate My Team” on the main Premium Members Area menu.

CAN I ORDER BY SCORES FOR ONE GAMEWEEK?

From the list of all players in RMT or projections, just click on the Gameweek header to sort the players by that Gameweek’s predicted score.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE GAMEWEEKS I VIEW RMT OVER?

At the top of the Rate My Team page, whilst you have your team loaded, you can select “First Gameweek” and “Last Gameweek”. By default, the first Gameweek will be the next Gameweek and the last Gameweek will be in six Gameweeks’ time, but these can be manually altered to suit your research.

    On BB

    A) White
    B) Mykolenko -4
    C) any other def up to 4.9 for -4, who?

    1. Michelle Davin
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      What did Arteta say about white.

      1. Captain Haddock
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        "Ben White is still in contention so he needs to train tomorrow to make sure that he's available to play"

    2. dwain100
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Not sure about Whites recovery from injury - Tomiyasu?

    3. fijuhmon
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I have the same dilemma. I don't think White starts both and won't get CS in the one he starts.

      I'd get Myko but have only 4.8. Can't believe it but I'm looking at Holgate. And this will be for a hit (Broja to Nketiah the other move).

  2. dwain100

    Repost
    A) Mahrez and Nketiah
    B) Diaz and Jesus

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      A

    2. Captain Haddock

  3. Michelle Davin

    Kane & Mount to
    KDB (cpt) & richarlison -4

    That gives me the option to do kdb to son on the last gw

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      B

      1. Michelle Davin

        is that a yes or a no?

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah

  4. Weak Become Heros
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Boys, please. This is doing my nut in, what are you taking:

    A. Coutinho Kane > KDB Richy (451)
    B. Coutinho Broja > Brownhill Richy (442)

    Thoughts:
    1. Big cash league im behind 4 points, I have a good team set up for rest of season but he has KdB.
    2. KDB looked shattered/carrying something v Madrid (why would Pep bring his best player off on 72mins)
    3. Looking ahead 37 game v WH is Mark Nobles last home game. Atmosphere will be rocking (thinking last game at Upton Park type).

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      A

    2. Colonial
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      KDB went off for TACTITAL reasons according to Pep - so he has had a good reat since last w/end

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Yes, and it did work initially with Gundo getting the assist. But if you watched it, Kev did look a bit ‘off’ didnt he..

        Would you still get him in but lose Kane?

  5. Vpan
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    a) Mane + Mahrez

    or

    b) Jota + KDB

    ?

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      B, i think Jota does well this week plus you’re getting in Kev.

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Oh thats a tough one.. both look great but I'll go for B

  6. Mork calling Orson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Pick one to start
    A) Martinelli
    B) Dennis
    C) Gordon

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      C (mins).

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      A

    3. G00LI0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Tricky. Gordon more mins but A can be explosive

  7. Hotdogs
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Could you help choose one for BB this week:

    A. Mount, Kulu, Laporte (-4)
    B. Mount, Maddison, Cash (-4)
    C. Kulu, Maddison, Laporte (-8)
    D. Kulu, Luis Diaz, Cash (-8)

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Try to limit hits for a BB, only eating into your return.

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      A

  8. Neo-Viper
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    how confident are you that Amartey starts either one of the game in GW36?

    I have Ramsey to cater too to. Ramsey will become Gordon to double up with Richa.

  9. kellamergh
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Schmeichal
    Cancelo (v) - Robbo - Taa - James
    Salah (c) - Son - Kulu - Saka - Cout
    Nketiah

    DDG - Telles - Mateta - Weg

    1. frenchfries
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Looks good, would go Salah if you are ahead. Who would you captain if not?

  12. frenchfries
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    BB team, GTG? Not completely decided on captain, but need to gain 40pts so need something different then Salah

    Ramsdale
    Cancelo(C) TAA Rudiger
    Salah Coutinho Kulu Saka Gordon
    Kane Richarlison

    Foster Amartey Holgate Pukki

  13. TheTinman

    Differential captain? Reece James?

    1. PartyTime
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Cancelo

      1. TheTinman
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Don't own sadly!

    2. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Kev, Cancelo.

  14. THFC4LIFE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Which premiums would you sell to fund Dalot and Ramsey upgrades…

    Salah Son or Kane

    1. jason_ni
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Kane

    2. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      How do you think Kane scores compared to Son rest of season mate?

      I have both Son/Kane, reluctant to sell Kane as I think he is due a big haul given his underlyings. But he is my only way to get Kev in.

      1. THFC4LIFE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        It’s a tough call mate, same boat for me really, Kane to Richarlison opens up other upgrades in my team.

        From a football point of view I think the Liverpool game especially suits Sons game, but wouldn’t be shocked if Kane does outscore him til end of the season

        1. Weak Become Heros
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Thanks mate. Yeah agree. I think KDB better option this week but I fancy Kane over the rest of season as a whole.

  15. WATERMELONS
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Alonso (-4) or Matip until end of season?

    1. jason_ni
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Prob alonso for upside. Konate may get 1 game this week as well, but alonso a bit of rotation risk as well!

  16. jason_ni
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Cap Mo or Kdb

    Does it just come down to chasing vs playing it safe!?

    1. SensibleSoccerChamp
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Mo

    2. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Mo

    3. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I was all set KDB but saw the predicted points and started thinking about Salah EO and minileague rival probably goes Salah C and we are 10pts apart.

      Damn I hate this feeling. Should have stayed out of FFS today 😀

      1. jason_ni
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        My cash ml is super tight. Aside from 1st being 80 points ahead.
        I'm 2nd, and 6th is 15 points behind me!
        2nd gets 240 quid, and 4th gets paid out.
        Capt pick will be huge call

        1. BobbyDoesNotLook
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Yep exactly. I hate making safe choices if I otherwise would pick the other guy. Only for OR I would ”punt” on KDB

  17. Tommy1045
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Good transfers you reckon?

    Robbo & broja OUT
    Matip/cash & Watkins IN?

    Thanks

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yep, not fancy Richy this week?

      1. Tommy1045
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I have thought about him, is he an injury doubt or all good?

    2. jason_ni
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Probably if planning for 37 as well

  18. BobbyDoesNotLook
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Captain Salah or KDB

    1. SensibleSoccerChamp
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Salah only coz kdb ankle

      1. BobbyDoesNotLook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        What ankle?

        1. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          KDB got a knock to his ankle is what he is referring to I believe.

          1. BobbyDoesNotLook
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Hmm interesting. I thought sub was only tactical.

  19. Junks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 11 days ago

    On FH and chasing big time. Is this too punchy??

    Pickford
    Alonso Robbo Cancelo Mina
    Salah Diaz KDB Mahrez Kulu
    Nketiah

    Yay or Nay?

  20. SensibleSoccerChamp
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    What’s better?

    A) mane + Jesus
    B) kdb + richalson (funds in bank)

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      B due to uncertainty over Mane playing two games before FAC final

    2. SensibleSoccerChamp
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Ok thanks!!!

  21. JollyGoodYellows
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Someone tell me I'm stupid. On BB and looking at doing this

    Schar + Mount + Ramsey + Kane + Broja + Cucho > Dias + Mahrez + Gordon + Richarlison + Pukki + Nketiah (-16)

  22. GoonerByron

    3. Weak Become Heros

      A

    4. DoubleAKash
        3 months, 11 days ago

        A for me - almost guaranteed at least 1CS + potential for attacking returns, B is riskier

            1. Mr Ozil
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Why would Mendy not start both games?

      Need some help please guys…

      My 11th player is White (have bench fodder bench plus Broja (terrible).

      Do I stick with White and gamble or use a FT to switch Broja for Nketiah?

      1. OptimusBlack
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Broja > Nketiah

        1. tommo-uk-
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Will Broja start though?

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Nketiah

      3. DA Minnion (Former great)
        • 10 Years

      B: Kulu + Mount + Jesus (-4)
      C: Kulu + Mahrez + Rich (-8)
      D: Laporte + Mahrez + Nketiah (-8) with Kulu 1st sub

      Playing TC this week. BBC podcast tips Maddison as triple captain option, I think he's far too risky? anyone going with him as a differential?

        He will get lesser minutes imo

        Sacked him this morning. Six blanks on the trot with early substitutions in the last four of them make him a liability.

        Ditching but not sure on replacement. Gordon? Saka? Martinelli? Kulu?

        Gordon allows upgrade to Richarlison but there are some doubts around rich

        Martinelli also facilitates upgrade elsewhere
