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.

    Bench one of:-
    A)Gordon
    B)Coutinho
    C)Martinelli
    Leaning towards B atm.
    Thoughts guys?

    1. chilli con kone
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 5 hours ago

      A

    2. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 hours ago

      A over B imo

    3. Noob
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      A

  2. ChelseaGuy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 5 hours ago

    Foster to Schmeichel for a hit?

    1. chilli con kone
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 5 hours ago

      Yes

    2. Noob
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      Debating something similar (Pope -> Schmeichel rather than playing Foster)
      I'm torn - Foster probably gets 4/5 points. So Schmeichel needs a clean sheet for par and an addition CS for it to be worth it. Who is your other keeper?

      1. ChelseaGuy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        I'm BBing with Ramsdale

      James

      1. Visionaries
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        Could only afford Maddison with Alonso

    2. Ibralicious
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 hours ago

      B with Maddison for me

    3. ChelseaGuy

  4. Ibralicious
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 5 hours ago

    Best move this GW?

    A) Mount –> Mahrez
    B) Coutinho –> Foden
    C) Cash –> Dias
    D) Emerson –> Matip
    E) Mount + Pukki –> Maddison + Richarlison (-4)

    Cheers

      A

    2. kellamergh
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      Foden played 120 mins, the other night.
      His minutes will be managed.

    3. Noob
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      Would you want Cash/Coutinho back next week?
      Matip probably the safest that you would be happy with for the season.

  5. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 5 hours ago

    Final call:

    1. KDB (c) Kulu Mount

    2. Son Foden Mount

      Got 0 itb

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      If its just -4 for this move, it looks about break even

      1. TheBigDogg
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        Yeah will be a -4

    3. chilli con kone
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      No if you have a SGW option on the bench

      1. TheBigDogg
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        Am BB

    4. ChelseaGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      Are you BBing? What are the transfers?

      1. TheBigDogg
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 hours ago

        Kasper
        Cancelo Cash Robbo James
        Maddison Ramsey Kulu Salah
        Kane Mateta

        BB Sanchez White Gordon Nketiah

        My -4 was for Kasper and Nketiah

  7. Eirern
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 5 hours ago

    On FH:

    Who scores the most in GW36?
    TAA + Mykolenko
    Matip + James/Alonso
    Matip + Mount/Maddison

    1. ididnt
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      Matip and Alonso I’d think

    2. chilli con kone
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      B

    3. ChelseaGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      B

  8. ididnt
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 5 hours ago

    On a FH:

    A. Alonso & Laporte
    B. Mina & Cancelo

    1. chilli con kone
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      A

    2. ChelseaGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      A

    3. Tsumo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      A

  9. Ronnies
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 4 hours ago

    Play 1;

    A) Coutinho - Burnley, LIVERPOOL

    B) Gordon - Leicester, Watford

    Currently playing Pickford and Richarlison. Would 3 Everton be overkill considering their poor away form this season. Also Coutinho has blanked in his last 6 matches.

    Cheers.

    1. chilli con kone
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      A

  10. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 4 hours ago

    Any hits worth it here for a 36BB? Martinelli & Broja -> Gordon & Dennis (-8)?

    RAMSDALE, FOSTER
    CANCELO, LAPORTE, ROBBO, JAMES, ALONSO
    SALAH, KDB, MOUNT, KULU, MARTINELLI
    PUKKI, NKETIAH, Broja

    Bank 0.0m, 0FT, BB, FH(37) left

  11. Vovhund
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 4 hours ago

    Given the flag, would you still include Richarlison on a FH/WC?

    1. chilli con kone
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      Yes

  12. The Parrot
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      Would you do Robbo + Kane to TAA + Son for a hit?

      1. chilli con kone
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        No that’s very sideways

      2. GoonerByron
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        No chance.

    • cruzex
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 4 hours ago

      Mount or havertz? And why?

      1. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        Havertz. He's due!

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        Sell? Keep? Captain? Marry? Sh*g? Kill?

      3. ChelseaGuy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        Mount, more expected minutes and on set pieces

      4. Tsumo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        Mount. Havertz more likely to rest for cup final and I think Lukaku will get minutes

    • Mark Colonel
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        Will Mahrez play both?

        1. Energetics
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 hours ago

          I think so

        2. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 hours ago

          Unlikely. Small chance

        3. Hairy Potter
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 hours ago

          Probably not, even with one start he could haul.

      • james_
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 hours ago

        A) Pukki and Mount -> Richarlison and Kulu

        B) Mateta and Mount -> Richarlison and Harrison or another midfielder

          Morning. Please can you help. This is my current team (FH)

          Ederson-
          Cancelo-TAA-Alonso
          Salah-KDB-Saka-Gordon-Son
          Richarlison-Nketiah

          Would you swap Ederson-Son-Gordon for
          Schmeichel-Mahrez-Mount (or any other midfielders)

            I’m personally risking going without son. Wouldn’t go mahrez though. I’d swap ederson son and one of your defenders to schemiechel, Dias and either jota or Luiz Diaz
