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.

      Not for a hit, no.

    2. Fpl_Ludwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 29 days ago

      If you’re upgrading him then Pickford probably

    3. Tango74

      Thanks was 1FT. Everton away form hmmm

  8. jackruet

    Coutinho > bernardo?

  9. Rbyrne95
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    White and Bowen > Matip and Saka for -8?

    Want Matip in for white as he’ll likely play both for BB but need to take another hit to do so

    1. subhojit123
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I would

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Yes

  10. subhojit123
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Sterling -
    1. Keep
    2. Sell for mahrez
    3. Sell for foden

    1. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Sell for Mahrez and pray

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 29 days ago

      2

    3. Pointless
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Ha! Similar dilemma to what I posted. Sterling could have a good return in either match but will he get minutes now Man City only have the league to win. Even though Sterling is more rested maybe Mahrez more assured? If it’s a straight choice I’d go Mahrez as more minutes in total in next four
      Matches.

      1. subhojit123
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Exactly my thoughts...but already on -12. Had I been on -4 I would have done it without a thought

    4. jason_ni
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I capt sterling last 2, and just sold for kdb, so he'll prb haul now this gw

  11. Pointless
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    I’m selling Sterling. Which is better option:
    A: Get Maddison who my main ML rival has, with two good home fixtures. A blocking move as I’m 48 points ahead.
    B: Get Son or Mahrez (who ML rival doesn’t have) for potential “upside”.
    It’s a GW36 specific question because I’m using FH in 37 and will have Son in that.
    PS Thanks as always to everyone who comments! Always a big help!

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      B Son.

    2. Pointless
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I’m finding this the hardest week of the season for transfer decisions! I have a “good” team of players who on paper all have a DGW. But there are lots of transfer options which could make it a brilliant team - or a disaster! Arrggghh!

  12. The Red Devil
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Extended deadline making me slightly crazy
    Thoughts on Salah+ Ramsey -> Kdb + son?

    1. Visionaries
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Could actually pay off. But could be a disaster. Depends if chasing/desperate.
      I wouldn't lose Salah

    2. subhojit123
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Looks good IMO

  13. palace ash
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    For this GW and GW38? (FH37)

    A) Maddison
    B) Kulusevski
    C) Coutinho

    1. Mr. O'Connell hates DG…
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Kulu

    2. Fpl_Ludwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Maddison

    3. Pointless
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Probably Maddison. My likeliest move too.

  14. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Havertz to anyone worth a hit?

    I’m triple City/Pool already, so limits my options. Maddison or Raphinha the only temptations I can see…

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      You've got Saka too i guess?

      1. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Yep. And Zaha in preparation for next week.

        Lack of options makes me think sticking and saving the hit is the sensible choice.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I agree.

          Zaha was my next suggestion but they're away in both games next week.

        2. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Zaha could be gold this week as a single gw player.

          A real differential

          1. Scots Gooner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Hope so. Surely he gets something at home vs a dead Watford.

            Think I’ll just stick with Havertz. His 37/38 fixtures aren’t bad either. Thanks for the help. Hope you have a massive green arrow this week.

        I'm wavering on staying No-Salah after sleeping on it. If I bring him back for Kane for -4 I don't really want to lose any of my mids. Or just lose KdB for the hit and captain Salah. Feel I should have both Tough!
