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.

      Depends on others' remaining chips, but catching 80 points is still achievable

      1. Werner Bros
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah I feel 2nd is achievable even - I have BB and FH and everybody else has 0 or 1 chip. 1st is probably out of reach but the rest doable.

    2. Happyhiccup

        Don't look for safe if you're chasing. Look for upside. Jesus for me.

      Please help me pick one -

          3 months, 3 days ago

          If robbo is playing once, can you find a defender who plays twice and is likely to outscore him? I see robbo as a 1 pointer this week as I can see spurs scoring 2 against pool and him rested against villa.

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            I don't think so mate albeit you may be right. He's double digits this week 😛

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years

            Can see that backfiring :/
            Appreciate the input though

        Anyone with son and salah going with son as captain?

        1. E25
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Fine if you're chasing.

        2. Eh, just one more thing ...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          No, going to stick with Salah C and Son VC

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

        Not made any moves yet, no idea what to do…. any ideas please

        Sa
        Cancelo Rudiger Anderson
        Salah Son Saka Coutinho Ramsey
        Kane Toney

        Dubravka Dalot Broja Amartey

        1ft 0itb

        Kane downgrade and upgrade Ramsey and Dalot?

        1. Max City
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          I'd roll, because I am not confident in KdB

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

            Cheers

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Could just do Ramsey to Gordon. Although Anderson no double, could keep a CS vs. Watford and has double next.

          I don't love Coutinho, but if you have him could just hold.

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

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

        Is Broja >> Nketiah worth a hit?

        Alternatively just play Broja or Weghorst

      6. Arteta
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        I don't know how it came to this but right now I have Mendy, James and Mount in FH draft. I just think that Tuchel will demand a reaction after recent dip in form.

        1. Arteta
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          And surely they can keep at least one clean sheet versus Wolves and Leeds, right?!

          1. Max City
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            True

        2. E25
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Surely alsonso over James for chance of 2 starts.

          1. Arteta
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            Maybe maybe, I'm still overthinking. Both could get crazy scores to be honest.

        3. Milkman Bruno
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Leeds will score

      7. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        A: DCL to Richarlson for a -4
        B: no, just start Cash
        C: no, just start DCL

        Thank you.

        How many average players for y'all this GW?
        29 for me with a BB

        1. Arteta
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Only 22.

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

          29. May increase if Mateta leaked not to start. Reality is not all of those will play both.

                Would you try and take Kane out instead of Salah?

                  Depends on who leader has so u can hedge properly

                Veltman to Mina or Holgate (-4)?

                  Only if you think they're gonna get a clean sheet in one of the games

                  Yea could work since it’s back to back doubles

                    3 months, 3 days ago

                    I think it is. Is Mina worth the extra over Holgate though?

                What's the better play here?
                A) Son + start Gordon + 3.9
                B) No Son, bench Gordon, bring in Luis Duiz and upgrade 3.9 to Laporte.

                Context: defending ML lead against rival who has Son.

                Cheers!

                    My question is Kulu or Saka (-4) for that position.

                    I have £7.8m to spend there if selling Kulu.

                Which option. FH in 37

                A. Kane and Coutinho
                B. Kane and Maddison
                C. Kane and Foden (-4)
                D. KdB and Richarlison (-4)

                Thanks.

                "Butland, Eze, Olise, Edouard and Wilf all start. A lot of changes today."

                Eek. Doesn't sound ideal for Mateta.

                  Robbo & Mahrez or KDB & Holgate?

                  Ronaldo Dilemma

                  I’m gonna FH in 37 so only looking at 36&38.

                  Pope
                  TAA Cancelo Alonso Holgate
                  Salah (C) Foden Kulusevski Tielemans
                  Dennis Ronaldo

                  Dbvka Weghorst Guimaraes Livra

                  0.2 ITB & 1 FT

                  A) Ronaldo to Kane
                  B) Ronaldo to “insert name here”
                  C) Ronaldo to “insert name here” and upgrade Tielemans to “insert name here” for a -4
                  D) Keep Ronaldo as an expensive differential with bha and cpl to play. Maybe use the FT for Pope to Schmeichel.

                  Thanks in advance!
