FPL points predictions for Gameweek 2 and beyond

FPL points projections: How many points will your players score? 1

Our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) points projections for Gameweek 2 have received their final update for Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members.

These updates take injury and rotation risks into account.

The captaincy battle between Erling Haaland (£11.6 million) i Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) is one of the big talking points in the community at the moment, and here, the pair are among the top two expected not only this weekend, but for the next six weeks game

In another part, Gabriel Jesus (£8.0m) is the only player outside of those representing Manchester City and Liverpool to feature in the top 10 this gameweek.

And what about that third Liverpool slot? Well, our projections suggest Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) is the man to join Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) in Gameweek 2 and beyond.

Subscribers can see the players who top the point projections for both this upcoming week of games and the next six in the images below, but you can get the full image by clicking here.

You can even get a breakdown of the points, from attack returns to clean sheets, by clicking here.

Meanwhile, our Rate My Team tool can give you an approximation of how many FPL points your own team will score during a series of Gameweeks. We have more details on this below.

GAME WEEK 2: FPL POINT PROJECTIONS

WHAT IS MY TEAM VALUE?

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 Game Week Projections (SGP).

Season projections show algorithm generated predictions for each FPL player. This includes goals, assists, clean sheets, minutes played, bonus points, yellow cards and most importantly FPL points.

SGP displays algorithm-generated predictions for each player’s FPL points in each of the following six weeks, calculating their points per million values ​​over that period. These numbers are the same as those used in RMT.

HOW ARE VALUES CALCULATED TO VALUE MY TEAM AND PROJECTIONS?

The values ​​are generated by an algorithm that uses current and historical data. There is also constant human monitoring so the model can quickly respond to news, injuries or tactical changes that the algorithm might otherwise underestimate.

We do this to generate the best values ​​with the least possible bias.

HOW CAN I UPLOAD MY EQUIPMENT TO RMT?

To upload your equipment to RMT, you must enter your FPL ID.

If you can’t find your FPL ID, instructions on how to find it can be found on the Rate My Team page.

WHAT DO XM AND ADJP MEAN?

Hovering over a player’s predicted FPL points in a Gameweek will display an xM rating and an adjP rating.

xM stands for Expected Minutes – it’s the number of minutes the algorithm predicts a player will have. Note that this is not a specific Gameweek prediction, but an average number of minutes. Therefore, even though a player is expected to play 90 minutes, his xM will be lower as there is a chance that he will miss the game or be substituted.

adjP is the expected points: how many points the algorithm predicts a player will score per week if he were to play 90 minutes.

Both values ​​are combined to generate a final score.

WHY DOES RMT SAY STARTING A PLAYER WITH A LOWER EXPECTED SCORE THAN A SECOND PLAYER?

This usually happens because the algorithm predicts that a player (usually a goalkeeper) will either play the full game or not appear at all.

Player A: high adjP, very low xM: low RMT score

Player B – Average AdjP, very high xM – Average RMT score

Although it is unlikely that Player A will play, the most common scenarios are that he will be given 90 minutes or none. So RMT thinks it’s worth starting to make use of adjP alt if he plays, otherwise player B’s safer option will automatically go in.

So he suggests picking player A over B, even though the former seems to score lower in RMT.

WHEN DO THE UPDATES HAPPEN?

While there is no fixed update schedule, it is pretty much continuous.

Mondays tend to have a big update after the events of the weekend. Thursday and Friday will have evening updates following any news that emerges from the pre-match press conferences.

CAN I SEE A FULL LIST FOR ALL PLAYERS IN RMT?

You can find the full list here. It can also be found by clicking on the ‘Players’ option in the sub-menu under ‘Rate My Team’ in the main menu of the Premium Members area.

CAN I SORT BY SCORES FOR A WEEK OF GAMES?

In the list of all players in RMT or projections, simply click on the Gameweek header to sort players by predicted score for that Gameweek.

HOW DOES IT CHANGE THE GAMEWEEKS I SEE RMT?

At the top of the Rate My Team page, while your team is loaded, you can select “First week of play” and “Last week of play”. By default, the first Gameweek will be the next Gameweek and the last Gameweek will be six Gameweeks from now, but these can be manually modified to suit your quest.
