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.

    Hey guys, is Robertson expected to be on the bench for 1 game this DGW? Is transferring him out for Cancelo for -4 a good move?

    Cheers

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

      Yes. But don't think that makes it worth taking a hit, even for Cancelo

  2. Gazwaz80
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Good morning, would you do Watkins to Jesus for a -4? Cheers….

    1. Aladdin Sané

      If No FH then no; if you have a FH then possibly

        I’m free hitting next week…

    Any improvements on this FH team?

    Schmeichal
    TAA - James - Dias - Cancelo
    Salah - Saka - KDB - Maddison - Mount
    Nketiah

    1. Zero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Looks very good imo

  4. Zero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Currently 3kish with a BB and 1FT, don't want to mess up the season! Quick, general questions are:

    A) Son to KDB is too much of a kneejerk, right?
    B) Richarlison - is he being overhyped at the moment? With Everton 2.5xG predicted over the DGW, it's towards the lower end.
    C) Saka a high priority this week or possible to go without?
    D) Coutinho worth keeping this GW? I haven't seen him play recently so unsure whether he has potential over others

    Thank you in advance!

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

      A - yes too kneejerky
      B - maybe, but also has highest XGI (5th excluding pens) and four games in two weeks
      C - I think he is a good choice this week. Expect goals in both games
      D - potentially lose him if the alternatives are worthile and you have a FH for 37

          All I'd say is that I am 260k ish so if you're 3k then maybe you know better than me!

      Wouldn't be confident of 2 starts for Diaz or Robbo. Maybe Havertz, Cancelo?

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

    Bottomed.

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

    1. JohannaAdams10

    Who is the best GK for this DGW in your opinion?

    Excluding Alisson and Ederson, as I prefer other players from their teams.

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Schmeichel

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Ramsdale? Could easily get 8-10

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

      Kasper

  9. Marcin the Pole
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Robbo -> Cancelo worth a -4?

    Feel exposed with no City defence...

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

      No

  10. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Expecting spurs to beat Liverpool 3-0 so going to bench Robbo this week

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Love the confidence. COYS

    2. yousunkmybattleship
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      Fingers crossed!!

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

    Who's the most nailed Everton defender?
    Or is there anyone better for the double upto 5.1?

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

      Coleman if in budget. I like the left back though for starts too

      1. Mesh
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Thanks. Is the left back nailed now?

    2. Hairy Potter
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Mina worth a punt for aerial threat against Leicester?

  12. DÏLKS
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Bench one:

    A) Fofana
    B) Pukki
    C) Nketiah

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

      A due to rotation risk

    2. AC Yew
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      A

  13. Kantelele
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Everton fans, should Holgate play regularly?

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

        Whilst Godfrey is out then yes but you would need to monitor that

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

      Which scores more this week only (FH)

      A. Matip and Nket
      B. Gordon and Richarlison

      Bench fodder will be adjusted accordingly

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

        A

      2. AC Yew
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        A

    • Killitzer
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Anyone playing a TC over BB this week? If so who have you got the armband on?

    • Erange
        1 month, 29 days ago

        On BB, last decision to make:

        A. B. Johnson —> Tavares
        B. Mount + Johnson —> Dias + Odegaard for -4

      • Bobadoba
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Transfered Werner out for Jesus last night.

        Beginning to regret this now and think Kane should have gone. I doubt he'll score against Liverpool.

        Any views welcome

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

          Kane scores in the big games.

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

            And loves a NLD goal too

            1. Bobadoba
              • 12 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Ok thanks for the reassurance. Tea helps too

      • FootballDog
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Jesus Captain anyone? Have Salah.....

        1. Bobadoba
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Im considering this also.

          Am chasing big time.

          Will Jesus play both games though?

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

            Probably not, but I see him getting minutes

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

          I have.

          Mahrez vc.

          Have Salah, Kane and Saka.

          No Son or KDB tho.

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

            Nice, good differently

        100+ point free hit team.

        Schmeichel
        Cancelo Dias TAA Alonso
        Salah Son Diaz Saka
        Jesus Nketiah

        1. AC/DC AFC

          50 points
          50 points?

      • Lionac
        • 5 Years

        Can Mahrez outscore Mount this GW?

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

          Yes

      • Proietti
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Which of the three:

        a) Foden

        b) Jota

        c) Havertz

        (rest of midfield is: Saka, Salah, Mount & Son)

        1. Birdman77
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          You’d think they only get a game each, max 120 mins. Tough but Foden for mine

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

          Thanks.

      • It'd be Rudi not to...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        On a FH:

        Kasper (Steele)
        TAA, Alonso, Cancelo (Tavares, Holgate)
        Salah, KdB, Kulu, Saka (Gordon)
        Jesus, Rich, Nketiah

        Any changes needed here? 0.1 ITB.

      • Crazy RedDevil
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Saka or matip? and Dennis or nketiah?

        1. artvandelay316
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Saka, Nketiah

      • AC Yew
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Coutinho - Saka
        Mateta - Nketiah worth it for a -4? BB this week followed by FH37

        1. artvandelay316
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yes

        2. Birdman77
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yep

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

          Mateta dropped for Zaha.

          1. AC Yew
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Great thank you! i had doubts whether he would start

        4. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yep, Mateta is a risk. PV indicating that we will be changing up the system for the last games, blooding some very good academy players we have (mostly wide players) and playing with the system as well with Gallagher returning. Really only Zaha/our centre backs are nailed I would say.

          1. AC Yew
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Thank you wasnt sure how likely mateta was to start.

      • artvandelay316
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Current FH midfield:
        Maddison, Mount, Salah, KDB, Salah

        Baring in mind fixtures, should I change out Maddison or Mount to Son or is this current setup better?

      • Old Bull
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Looking at the Liverpool rotation threat, is Jota to Son and TAA or Cancelo to Matip for -8 madness?

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

          Yes

        2. artvandelay316
          • 1 Year

          First part, no. Second part, yes.

        3. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yes, dont drop Trent and cancelo

          Banged my head yesterday. Might need to see the quack.

      • Hairy Potter

        Will we get any more news from what Pep said in the rest of his press conference before the deadline?

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

          No because that was all he said....

          1. Hairy Potter
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Thought there was an embargo on what he told the written press?

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

        Purely from a most points potential view, does 36 or 37 hold the most opportunity?

        I have a decent team of dgw's (though no city), my logical free hit is next week, but wondering if this week is the penalty kick for points (may next week us just a free kick on the edge of the area as it where...)

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I have had this discussion with myself throughout the week and in the end decided to FH in 38.

          Cant see much upside in 36 and 37, at least thats what I felt while building a FHd raft.

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

            I agree Holmes

        2. artvandelay316
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Same situation but I FH this week, as the teams and players involved in DGW 37 are not inspiring me and I don't think there are many obvious choices like this week.

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

            I'm with you, i just have a decent team for this week, also good for 38, so free hitting this week kind of mean's ignoring next week. I've probably left it too late so might have to just free hit.
