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.

    Only worries I have are Werner and no City…

    Is Werner out worth a -4? Anything else you would do?

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Why is werner a concern? He plays a lot now for Chelsea and can return decent points

      1. boroie
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        He is rubbish and very likely to be dropped

      2. boroie
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        In fact I’d be astonished if he starts today against Wolves

    Someone tell me I'm being stupid here?

    On BB and considering these transfers

    Schar + Ramsey + Mount + Kane + Broja + Cucho > Zinchenko + KDB (C) + Gordon + Nketiah + Pukki + Dennis (-16)

    1. PascalCygan
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Not stupid. I’ve also had to sell Cucho, Schar, Ramsey and others due to injury. I’m taking -20! Can’t be helped. BB I hope will come off!

      1. JollyGoodYellows
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Cheers. Do or die I guess

        1. PascalCygan
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yep. Sure I’d get slated by some on here but injuries have backed me into a corner, so I’m coming out swinging with hits!

      2. ebb2sparky
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        -20 in one game week? If that works out for you then either you’re very lucky or I need to rethink how I play this game!

        1. PascalCygan
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          BB36 FH37, injuries to White, Schar, Ramsey, Cucho… Rudiger and Doherty before then. I’ve never taken more than -8, I’m chasing 40 deficit in ML. OR 29k and couldn’t care less about it!

          1. ebb2sparky
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            I’m intrigued to see how it goes. I saved my WC to avoid hits for BB but that’s come with it’s own issues. Next year I might just use the BB early and avoid the headache,

            1. PascalCygan
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              I can see the appeal of that approach. I know my approach may look stupid now but a month ago I had 13 DGW players and could have got to a full 15 with FTs to spare. Injuries have derailed those plans though. Just a mad season

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I'd do it without the Kane and KDB components and save on a hit

      1. JollyGoodYellows
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Good point. It's a lot of hits.

    Is Werner -> Jesus worth a -4?

    1. Cojones of Destiny

      think so

  13. Hana

    • 6 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Hi all,

    After some advice. I plan on bench boosting this GW then FH GW37, TC GW38.

    Team:
    Schmichel, Foster
    Cancelo, Cash, Robertson, Matip, Alonso
    Salah, Son, Coutinho, Saka, Mount
    Dennis, Nketiah, Pukki

    Have one free transfer:
    1) Son to De Bruyne
    2) Coutinho to Foden/Kulu
    3) Matip/Cash to Laporte
    4) Other

  14. Legohair
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Nketiah to my team worth to take hit or just play E.Royal or KDH?

    1. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      KDH

    2. artvandelay316
      • 1 Year

      Get him in

  15. iCon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    £4.3m for defender to fill last spot on BB…

    Holgate or a crazy punt on a Norwich or Watford defender?

    1. YEAH PITCH!
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Tavares

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

        Would be perfect but I’ve got 3 Ars already 🙁

    2. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Tavares an option also

    3. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I think Holgate with 4 games in a better option than Norwich or Watford

    4. Hana
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Prob Holgate, might get a clean sheet. Ayling is also that price but has rubbish fixtures

  16. Ninjaa
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Who's more likely to play both dgw games Laporte or Dias ??

    1. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      L

    2. GoonerByron
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Dias. No cover at RCB.

    3. chilli con kone
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Dias imo

    4. Mr Ozil
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Dias
      He is the only player who can play as RCB

  17. Cojones of Destiny
    • 4 Years

      I need a 4.5m Def that I will play gw37 and 38. Any thoughts? Fofana option or a Burnley defender?

        1. Garlana
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          For next week and 38. Not this week. Preferably a doubler next week with decent 38 fixture

      2. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Guehi? Not the best 38 but a good 37

    • Return of the FF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      On a FH here, thoughts?

      Schmeichel
      TAA, Cancelo, Laporte, Alonso, fodder
      Salah, Son, Kulu, Saka, Gordon
      Jesus, Richa, fodder

      442. I could get Matip over Alonso but would like some Chelsea for those fixtures. Also contemplating Kulu to Maddison due to fixtures, but Kulu form so hot.

      A) Son for remainder of season

      Or
      C) Jesus week 36 only????

      1. Button Phobic

      Keep White or get rid for a hit? I'm bench boosting

      1. DA Minnion (Former great)
        • 9 Years

        I'm leaning towards getting rid.

        • 7 Years

        I'm thinking the hit myself but hoping for some info before making the move - mainly because not convinced in the alternatives at the same price point

    • Aladdin Sané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      A) Richarlison (-4) and bench one of Cout, Kulu or Pukki (which one?)
      B) No hit and play Cout, Kulu and Pukki
