RULES

Spoiler

Selecting Your Initial Squad

Squad Size

To join the game select a fantasy football squad of 15 players, consisting of:

2 Goalkeepers

5 Defenders

5 Midfielders

3 Forwards

 

Budget

The total value of your initial squad must not exceed £100 million.

 

Players Per Team

You can select up to 3 players from a single Premier League team.

 

Managing your squad

Choosing your starting 11

From your 15 player squad, select 11 players by the Gameweek deadline to form your team.

All your points for the Gameweek will be scored by these 11 players, however if one or more doesn't play they may be automatically substituted.

Your team can play in any formation providing that 1 goalkeeper, at least 3 defenders and at least 1 forward are selected at all times.

 

Selecting a Captain and a Vice-Captain

From your starting 11 you nominate a captain and a vice-captain. Your captain's score will be doubled.

If your captain plays 0 minutes in the Gameweek, the captain will be changed to the vice-captain.

If both captain and vice-captain play 0 minutes in a Gameweek, then no player's score will be doubled.

 

Prioritising Your Bench For Automatic Substitutions

Your substitutes provide cover for unforeseen events like injuries and postponements by automatically replacing starting players who don't play in a Gameweek.

For the purpose of automatic substitutions playing in a Gameweek means playing at least 1 minute or receiving a yellow / red card.

Based on the priorities you assign, automatic substitutions are processed at the end of the Gameweek as follows:

If your Goalkeeper doesn't play in the Gameweek, he will be substituted by your replacement Goalkeeper, if he played in the Gameweek.

If any of your outfield players don't play in the Gameweek, they will be substituted by the highest priority outfield substitute who played in the Gameweek and doesn't break the formation rules (eg. If your starting team has 3 defenders, a defender can only be replaced by another defender).

 

Transfers

After selecting your squad you can buy and sell players in the transfer market. Unlimited transfers can be made at no cost until your first deadline.

After your first deadline you will receive 1 free transfer each Gameweek. Each additional transfer you make in the same Gameweek will deduct 4 points from your total score (Classic scoring) and match score (Head-to-Head scoring) at the start of the next Gameweek.

If you do not use your free transfer, you are able to make an additional free transfer the following Gameweek. If you do not use this saved free transfer in the following Gameweek, it will be carried over until you do. You can never have more than 1 saved transfer.

 

Wildcards

For information on wildcards please refer to the chips section of the rules.

 

Player Prices

Player prices change during the season dependent on the popularity of the player in the transfer market. Player prices do not change until the season starts.

The price shown on your transfers page is a player's selling price. This selling price may be less than the player's current purchase price as a sell-on fee of 50% (rounded up to the nearest £0.1m) will be applied on any profits made on that player.

For example, if you buy a player for £8.3m and when you transfer him his price is £9.0m, his selling price will be £8.6m.

 

Chips

Chips can be used to potentially enhance your team's performance during the season.

Only one chip can be played in a single Gameweek. The chips available are as follows:

 

Name | Effect

Bench Boost | The points scored by your bench players in the next Gameweek are included in your total.

Free Hit | Make unlimited free transfers for a single Gameweek. At the next deadline your squad is returned to how it was at the start of the Gameweek.

Triple Captain | Your captain points are tripled instead of doubled in the next Gameweek.

Wildcard | All transfers (including those already made) in the Gameweek are free of charge.

 

The Bench Boost and Triple Captain chips can each be used once a season and are played when saving your team on the my team page. They can be cancelled at anytime before the Gameweek deadline.

The Free Hit chip can be used once a season, is played when confirming your transfers and can't be cancelled after confirmed.

The Wildcard chip can be used twice a season. The first wildcard will be available from the start of the season until 29 Dec 14:00. The second wildcard will be available after this date in readiness for the January transfer window opening and remain available until the end of the season. The Wildcard chip is played when confirming transfers that cost points and can't be cancelled once played.

Please note that when playing either a Wildcard or your Free Hit chip, any saved free transfers will be lost. You will be back to the usual 1 free transfer the following Gameweek.

 

Deadlines

All changes to your team (starting 11, transfers, captain changes, substitiution priorities) must be made by the Gameweek deadline in order to take effect for that set of matches.

Deadlines are subject to change and will be 1 hour before the kick-off time in the first match of the Gameweek.

 

Scoring

During the season, your fantasy football players will be allocated points based on their performance in the Premier League.

Action | Points

For playing up to 60 minutes | 1

For playing 60 minutes or more (excluding injury time) | 2

For each goal scored by a goalkeeper or defender | 6

For each goal scored by a midfielder | 5

For each goal scored by a forward | 4

For each goal assist | 3

For a clean sheet by a goalkeeper or defender | 4

For a clean sheet by a midfielder | 1

For every 3 shot saves by a goalkeeper | 1

For each penalty save | 5

For each penalty miss | -2

Bonus points for the best players in a match1 | -3

For every 2 goals conceded by a goalkeeper or defender | -1

For each yellow card | -1

For each red card | -3

For each own goal | -2

 

Clean sheets

A clean sheet is awarded for not conceding a goal whilst on the pitch and playing at least 60 minutes (excluding injury time).

If a player has been substituted when a goal is conceded this will not affect any clean sheet bonus.

 

Red Cards

If a player receives a red card, they will continue to be penalised for goals conceded by their team.

Red card deductions include any points deducted for yellow cards

 

Assists

Assists are awarded to the player from the goal scoring team, who makes the final pass before a goal is scored. An assist is awarded whether the pass was intentional (that it actually creates the chance) or unintentional (that the player had to dribble the ball or an inadvertent touch or shot created the chance).

If an opposing player touches the ball after the final pass before a goal is scored, significantly altering the intended destination of the ball, then no assist is awarded. Should two opposing players touch the ball after the final pass before a goal is scored, then no assist is awarded. If the goal scorer loses and then regains possession, then no assist is awarded.

 

Rebounds

If a shot on goal is blocked by an opposition player, is saved by a goalkeeper or hits the woodwork, and a goal is scored from the rebound, then an assist is awarded.

 

Own Goals

If a player shoots or passes the ball and forces an opposing player to put the ball in his own net, then an assist is awarded.

 

Penalties and Free-Kicks

In the event of a penalty or free-kick, the player earning the penalty or free-kick is awarded an assist if a goal is directly scored, but not if he takes it himself, in which case no assist is given.

 

Finalising Assists

Assist points awarded by Opta within Fantasy Premier League are calculated using additional stats which may differ from other websites. For example, some other sites would not show an assist where a player has won a penalty.

For the avoidance of doubt, points awarded in-game are subject to change up until one hour after the final whistle of the last match of any given day. Once the points have all been updated on that day, no further adjustments to points will be made.

 

Bonus Points

The Bonus Points System (BPS) utilises a range of statistics to create a BPS score for every player. The three best performing players in each match will be awarded bonus points. 3 points will be awarded to the highest scoring player, 2 to the second best and 1 to the third.

Examples of how bonus point ties will be resolved are as follows:

If there is a tie for first place, Players 1 & 2 will receive 3 points each and Player 3 will receive 1 point.

If there is a tie for second place, Player 1 will receive 3 points and Players 2 and 3 will receive 2 points each.

If there is a tie for third place, Player 1 will receive 3 points, Player 2 will receive 2 points and Players 3 & 4 will receive 1 point each.

 

How is the BPS score calculated?

Players score BPS points based on the following statistics (one point for each unless otherwise stated):

Action | BPS

Playing 1 to 60 minutes | 3

Playing over 60 minutes | 6

Goalkeepers and defenders scoring a goal | 12

Midifielders scoring a goal | 18

Forwards scoring a goal | 24

Assists | 9

Goalkeepers and defenders keeping a clean sheet | 12

Saving a penalty | 15

Save | 2

Successful open play cross | 1

Creating a big chance (a chance where the receiving player should score) | 3

For every 2 clearances, blocks and interceptions (total) | 1

For every 3 recoveries | 1

Key pass | 1

Successful tackle (net*) | 2

Successful dribble | 1

Scoring the goal that wins a match | 3

70 to 79% pass completion (at least 30 passes attempted) | 2

80 to 89% pass completion (at least 30 passes attempted) | 4

90%+ pass completion (at least 30 passes attempted) | 6

Conceding a penalty | -3

Missing a penalty | -6

Yellow card | -3

Red card | -9

Own goal | -6

Missing a big chance | -3

Making an error which leads to a goal | -3

Making an error which leads to an attempt at goal | -1

Being tackled | -1

Conceding a foul | -1

Being caught offside | -1

Shot off target | -1

*Net successful tackles is the total of all successful tackles minus any unsuccessful tackles. Players will not be awarded negative BPS points for this statistic.

Data is supplied by Opta and once it has been marked as final will not be changed. We will not enter into discussion around any of the statistics used to calculate this score for any individual match.

 

Leagues

After entering your squad, you can join and create leagues to compete with friends and other game players.

 

League Types

Private Leagues

Private leagues are the heart and soul of the game, where you compete against your friends. Just create a league and then send out the unique code to allow your friends to join, easy!

You can compete in up to 15 private leagues. There's no limit on the number of teams in a single league.

 

Public Leagues

Need an extra challenge? Then join a public league of 20 randomly assigned teams. You can compete in up to 3 public leagues.

 

Global Leagues

You are automatically entered into the following global leagues:

The overall league featuring all registered teams

A league for fellow managers from your country

A league for supporters of your favourite Premier League team

A league for managers starting the same Gameweek as you

The Fantasy Cup (starts in Gameweek 17)

 

League Scoring

All leagues score on either a Classic or Head-to-Head basis.

 

Classic Scoring

In a league with classic scoring, teams are ranked based on their total points in the game. You can join or leave a league with classic scoring at any point during the season.

In the event of a tie between teams, the team who has made the least amount of transfers will be positioned higher. Any transfers made using a wildcard or free hit will not count towards total transfers made.

 

Classic scoring leagues are run over a number of phases:

Phase | First Gameweek | Last Gameweek

Overall | Gameweek 1 | Gameweek 38

August | Gameweek 1 | Gameweek 3

September | Gameweek 4 | Gameweek 7

October | Gameweek 8 | Gameweek 10

November | Gameweek 11 | Gameweek 13

December | Gameweek 14 | Gameweek 20

January | Gameweek 21 | Gameweek 24

February | Gameweek 25 | Gameweek 28

March | Gameweek 29 | Gameweek 32

April | Gameweek 33 | Gameweek 36

May | Gameweek 37 | Gameweek 38

 

Any transfer point deductions in the Gameweek before a phase starts won't be deducted from the phase score. For example, any transfers made in Gameweek 3 (preparing for Gameweek 4) won't be deducted from your September score.

 

Head-to-Head Scoring

In a league with head-to-head scoring, every team plays a match against another team in the league each Gameweek. The match result is based on the Gameweek score of each team minus any transfer points spent preparing for the Gameweek.

3 points are awarded for a win and 1 point for a draw, teams are then ranked on points earned in Head-to-Head matches.

Head-to-Head fixtures are generated at the start of the league's first Gameweek. Once these fixtures have been generated the league is locked and teams will not be able to join or leave.

If a Head-to-Head league has an odd number of teams then an average team will join the league to ensure each team has a fixture every Gameweek. This team will always score the Gameweek average.

In the event of a tie between teams, the team who has most game points will be positioned higher.

 

Head-to-Head Knock-out stage

Optionally, a Head-to-Head league may end with a knock-out stage over up to 3 Gameweeks with the league winner decided by a match in the final Gameweek. The automatically entered average team will not enter the knock-out stage, their place being taken by the next placed team.

In the event of a tie between teams in a Head-to-Head knock-out match, the following tie-breaks will be used:

Most goals scored in the Gameweek

Fewest goals conceded in the Gameweek

Virtual coin toss

 

The Cup

The first round of the cup will be Gameweek 17.

 

Qualifying

The top 4,194,304 scorers in Gameweek 16 will enter the first round. If there are more than 4,194,304 qualifiers then there will be a random draw amongst the lowest scorers to see who qualifies.

 

How it works

Each qualifying team will be randomly drawn against another in the first round. The winner (the team with the highest Gameweek score minus any transfer points), will progress to the second round and another random draw, the losers are out! This process continues until the final Gameweek when the two remaining teams contest the cup final.

If a cup match is drawn, then the following tie-breaks will be applied until a winner is found:

Most goals scored in the Gameweek

Fewest goals conceded in the Gameweek

Virtual coin toss

Would it be possible to keep an updated list of peoples teams in the first post? And not allow people to join unless they post their team name/username in the thread? I'd really like to know who the hell it is I'm fighting against this season!

Anybody interested in a small wager? Can run a parallel league for those interested.

 

Cash payout for the most points in that month and then pay out at the end of the year for 1st-5th.

 

2/5/10 quid? I'm easy

I’d get destroyed based on my performance in previous seasons but would be up for this. 

 

£5 or £10 sounds good to me.

That's very good, @Hellcock. It has good names in, but I wonder about the points they would acquire (based on either the position they play or the frequency they start). Are there any cheap players from the promoted teams that might get you more points for similar prices?

 

Also, are you joining the rllmuk league?

It's also the England world cup squad. ;)

 

Yes I'll join.

Salah so expensive this time... this season Fabinho will need to be the goal-scoring midfield beast. 

His stats aren't hugely great.. Do you think he'll play?

 

How does one pick a man city midfielder/striker this season? Their team is TOO packed. Surely they have to offload a few guys in the transfer market? KDB for 10m looks good.

Luseth | Luseth's Dummies

 

I've opted for a few of the Wolves players having seen how good some of them were last season I think they could really step up to the prem well. Neves and Jota are the main 2 and they are nice and cheap allowing me to have Kane & Salah all in the side. Don't think it's too bad and think.

this is so hard this year with the late world cup finish of so many prem players - its a long season but don't want a team chock full of Belgian and English players who may not feature much in first couple of weeks.

 

picking your first team is just the start of the madness too - as you systematically rotate every player in and out over the next few weeks, guaranteeing you'll get annoyed at anybody who scores points that you had in your team at one point, but binned before the big KO.

Sane could be a great shout for man city, fired up and hungry for missing the world cup. Maybe sterling and KDB get rested for a while.

I've gone for Sane in my first draft (of 100 if history anything to go by) but already convincing myself that he'll be useless without KDB to play him in

Sir. Who starts out of these three wolves strikers? ;D

 

Jimenez?

@Hellcock Bonatini was there main (only?) striker for most of last season I think but Jimenez has come in for a season long loan and to be fair is quite talented so I wouldn't be surprised to see him make his mark for them.

 

I think he's come from Benfica, just hasn't had a chance there due to timings with injuries and that I think. @dr_manhattan^ might have a different opinion on him / know more about him as he's the Wolves fan that comes to mind from the championship thread ^_^

 

Trippier deservedly should be in most sides after watching the world cup :) Though I haven't followed prem football for a few years so I have no idea if he's any good at Tottenham?

Morning all.

 

@Hellcock

 

First of all, I wouldn't expect Mir to start or get much time at all, even though he's doing quite well in pre season, so avoid him would be my advice.

 

Nuno loves Bonatini so I would expect him to start the season.  As it stands our front three will rotate between Bonatini, Cavelario, Costa, and Jota who are all very capable of grabbing goals, and probably just as likely to start.  Jimenez is a complete unknown to me, but is a first team player and will be pushing for a start, I expect him to get his fair share of time.

 

I would most likely expect either Bonatini or Jimenez to play as a false 9 with two of Cav, Costa, and Jota either side.  I'd probably chose Cav or Jota.

 

Contrevesal point, I probably wouldn't be putting Neves in a fantasy leasgue team.  He's an amazing player, but doesn't get too many assists, and will probably get no more than five goals again this season at best.

 

I don't know how things are calculated for fantasy league teams, but I'd consider Boly and Patricio too.  I don't think we'll be giving too many goals away, and Boly should get a handful of goals himself.  He's a big physical ball playing defender who will come up for corners.

 

Lastly Barry Douglas got loads of assists last season, he has a wonderful left foot delivery and pops up with a few goals too.

 

@Boothjan might have some thoughts too, but he thinks Iorfa is a good player so be careful ;)

I'd agree with most of that - I think Jimenez will be our main striker though unless we sign another.  Bonatini off the bench.  Jota should start every game and is always involved with goals/assists, with Cavaleiro and Costa fighting it out for the other side of the front 3.

 

Barry Douglas is your assists man.  I think he got 15 last season - dead ball specialist, got a wicked delivery on him too.  

 

Guaranteed starters at the time of writing IMO:

 

Patricio

Coady

Boly

Douglas

Neves

Jota

 

We MIGHT upgrade at LWB which would mean Douglas misses out but I'd be confident with the above for now.

 

Oh, and I agree re: Neves.  UNREAL player, I have a serious man crush on him but he isn't a fantasy football points machine for the reasons mentioned above.

Thank you both :) I've swapped Neves out for Cavaleiro and Bonatini was on my bench so i've swapped him for Jimenez for the moment. Who would have thought I would have 3 Wolves players in my side hey ^_^
