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.

    Any further upgrades required on this FH lads? Last thing I’m deliberating is Mahrez to Jesus.

    Schmeichel
    Matiip - Alsono - Cancelo
    Salah (C) - Saka - KDB - Mahrez - Son
    Nketiah - Richarlson

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years

      Pretty similar to what I have

    2. Hana

      Looks good to me

  2. Dark Side Of The Loon!

    G2G? Need help in picking between the two GK options.

    Schmeichel/ Pickford?
    Dias Matip Alonso
    Salah Diaz KDB Mahrez Son
    Richarlison Nketiah

    Thanks.

      Looks good. Schmeichel for me

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks! Put Pickford there as he first plays a tired Leicester team and then a Watford team that would have already been relegated.

    Repost.

    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
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Responded on first one. Not a good move imo

    2. FantasyTony
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      nah man

    3. Hana
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I don’t think it’s worth a hit unless you think he is better in GW37 and GW38

  4. Flynniesta
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Morning, after wildcarding last week, the plan was always going to be Son - KDB this week but now having second thoughts so help needed please -
    A) Son - KDB
    B) Mount - Mahrez

    1. Flynniesta
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I’d probably have to make a straight swap back for Son next week & is KDB fully fit?
      Mount could be rested before the Cup Final although how many minutes will Mahrez get over the 2 games?
      If I don’t bring KDB in it makes my (C) decision easier (Salah)

      1. Hana
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I have similar dilemma, see below post. Son has difficult fixtures but I guess it comes down to whether man city will smash teams

        1. Flynniesta
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Yeah, the fixtures for Spurs were one of the reasons why I’d originally planned the Son switch but now thinking he could do well in the derby at home

    2. Baps hunter
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      B imo

      1. Flynniesta
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers pal, I’m swaying towards that. Mahrez has to come good for me on a transfer one of these days

  5. Hana
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    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 choice?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      TC much better in a dgw.

    2. Hana
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Agreed. Bout I’ve already activated my wildcard and think by bench this GW would match the extra points from a TC

      1. Flynniesta
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I think you’ve got your chips in the right order, I’m swaying more to moving Mount on to Mahrez

  6. Harmonica1967
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Is this FH team too risky?

    Ederson
    Cancelo- Matip-Rudiger-Cash
    KdB-Salah-Son-Saka
    Pukki-Dennis

    Gordon first and only playing sub.

    Logic on forwards is that Pukki is playing teams who played midweek and may be tired, while both strikers are also playing for the shop window.

    1. Visionaries
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I don't like it, I'd try and crowbar in either Richarlison or Jesus

    2. Hana
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I’d rather a better forward. Are you confident Matip plays twice and they have 2 clean sheets

    3. Flynniesta
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      If you stick with that I’d play Gordon over one of your 2 strikers

    4. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      The Pukki punt could work but you'd still think West Ham should beat Norwich, if not hammer them this time.

      Leicester improving at the back too.

  7. Visionaries
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Really stuck on these last positions for my FH.

    Kasper
    Trent, Cancelo, James, ???, ???
    Saka, Salah, KDB, ???
    Richarlison, ???

    A Matip, Laporte, Kulu/Maddison (541)
    B Matip, Gordon, Jesus (442)

    1. lankdog
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Normally hate going with 5 ATB but A looks the better option - not sure who out of Kulu/Maddison to go with though

    2. FantasyTony
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      A Kulu

  8. lankdog
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Bit of last minute surgery, advice appreciated:
    A) S. Armstrong and Broja > Gordon and Richarlison (-4)
    B) S. Armstrong > Saka, play Broja
    Chasing a ML rival who has Saka so think A is prob the more sensible option but in two minds. TIA for any help!

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      A looks good

  9. FantasyTony
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    First to 3 wins:

    A) Saka > Madison
    B) Mount > Foden
    C) Step away from computer

      B possibly.

      C. Probably

    5. Visionaries
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Would be tempted by B

    6. Flynniesta
      • 7 Years

      B or C, step away if thinking of A

    7. The Mentaculus

      C

  10. Oggle22

    Schmeichel
    TAA White James Laporte
    Salah Saka Kulu Mount KDB
    Richarlison

    Ramsdale Schar Richardson Cucho

    A) ewt worth a-4 schar to a 5.1m defender

    B) Captain KDB or Salah leading ML by 14 points

    Cheers

  11. jamesjoseph2770
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Captain Salah or KDB?

  12. Atimis

      For Whom ?

    2. Lecky Legs FC

      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yes

  13. Ronny Sandstone
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Any defender for 4.6 or less on a FH a better option that Holgate?

    Cheers

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Tavares?

      1. Ronny Sandstone
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah this could work, Spurs game surely has goals in it though, real slim pickings at this price this week (ideally want a double too) not sure if Holgate is safe fir 2 games either?

        Cheers

    Really can't decide on final moves. Help appreciated.

    A. Broja & White
    B. Dennis & White (-4)
    C. Nketiah & Holgate (-8)

    Can't do B with Nketiah

          I like it. Similar to mine, although Richarlison instead of Watkins? Not worth a hit tho

          1. Al Pacho
              3 months, 11 days ago

              If I did richi to watkins it’ll be a -4 tho. But, good shout

            Kane, Kulusevski, Ben While -> Rich, KDB, Laporte for -8. I'm BB. Thoughts?

            1. Biggsy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Don't think that's enough of an upgrade to warrant a -8

              1. Hana
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 11 days ago

                Agree. Don’t think it’s worth -8

              2. Pratik
                • 13 Years
                3 months, 11 days ago

                Really? I just need them to outscore by -8 to make it worth it. Is it basically that Spurs are against good teams but defences which concede?

          4. abaalan
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            A) pukki to nketiah -4
            B) havertz to odegaard -4
            C) not worth it

            Sterling & Mount - - > KDB & Saka (-4)?

            On BB and have White. Is it worth another -4 to get him out?

              First two moves were good. White out could be worth it, depends what you can afford

                Yeah, ultimately you have to try something different so go for it.

                On BB… current squad…

                Schmeichel*
                TAA* Rudiger* Alonso*
                Salah(C)* Saka(VC)* Kulu* Raphinha*
                Kane* Werner* Dennis*

                Ramsdale*; Gordon* Dier* Tavares*

                Only worries are that I have are Werner and no City…

                Is Werner -> Jesus worth a -4?

                Best move this GW? FH GW37, so no need to worry about next week:

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

                Cheers

                  A and B are two i'm weighing up (Davies instead of Emerson). Mount could do well this week, whereas I can't see Spurs keeping clean sheets in either. So leaning towards Matip. Mahrez is an exciting punt though.

                  Worth it to do:
                  Salah, White —> Son (C), Cancelo (-8)

                      I’d never involve Salah in a -8 unless you were bringing him in

                    Would you take another hit for Dubravka to Schmeichel?

                    Would mean -8 in total

                    FH in 37

                        3 months, 11 days ago

                        Definitely. Even if Schmeichel doesn’t get a clean sheet he will still get playing points and possible save points. Ik Dubravka still got the points against Liverpool last week but i wouldn’t be surprised if city obliterate Newcastle and bounce back after Madrid.
