How do you Pick a Fantasy Premier League Team?
Once you’ve signed up or logged in to the Fantasy Premier League website, you’ll be prompted to pick your FPL team.
You’ll be given a budget of £100m and, with that, you’ll need to buy 15 players.
Each player is assigned a price based on their perceived ability to score points. There isn’t an exact formula used to determine a player’s price, but a player’s history, his likelihood of starting matches and the strength of his club are all factored in.
How is Your Budget Allocated on Fantasy Premier League?
Player pricing is designed to prevent managers from choosing the 15 best players, which means we have to be resourceful with how we allocate our funds.
This is where your expert football knowledge and research comes in. You’ll need to find undervalued players; affordable players that you believe will score you points.
You’ll pick 11 starting players and four bench players. Your team will consist of:
- 2 goalkeepers
- 5 defenders
- 5 midfielders
- 3 forwards
Fantasy Premier League only allows you to pick three players from each Premier League team, meaning you can’t build a squad solely of Man City players, for example.
Your bench is only used if one of your starting players does not play. You order your bench from one to three, so put your best player with the best fixture as number one so they are subbed in first.
