Our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) point projections for Double Gameweek 29 have been updated following Friday’s press conferences.
Mohammad Salah (£13.2m) leads the way with 11.4 points, along with teammates Sadio Mane (£11.7 million) and Trent Alexandre-Arnold (£8.5million) next on nine points apiece.
Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m) is Arsenal’s asset pick, with a projected score of 8.8.
Subscribers can see the players at the top of the point projection charts for this upcoming Gameweek and the next six in the images below, but you can get a full image by clicking here.
Our Rate My Team tool, on the other hand, can give you an approximation of the number of FPL points your own team will score on a series of Gameweeks.
WHAT IS EVALUATING MY TEAM?
Rate my Team (RMT) is a tool designed to give you an estimate 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 SCREENINGS?
Projections come in two forms – Season Projections and Six Match 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 algorithmically generated predictions for each player’s FPL points over each of the next six Gameweeks, calculating their points per million over that time period. These numbers are the same as those used in RMT.
HOW ARE THE VALUES CALCULATED TO EVALUATE MY TEAM AND PROJECTIONS?
The values are generated by an algorithm that uses both current and historical data. There is also constant human monitoring so the model can react quickly 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 DO I LOAD MY TEAM INTO RMT?
To load your team into RMT, you need to enter your FPL ID.
If you can’t find your FPL ID, instructions for finding 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 show an xM score and an adjP score.
xM stands for Expected Minutes – This is the number of minutes the algorithm predicts a player will have. Note that this is not an exact Gameweek specific prediction, but rather an average number of minutes. Therefore, while a player can be 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 number of points – the number of points that the algorithm predicts a player will score in the week if he were to play 90 minutes.
These two values combine to generate a final score.
WHY DOES RMT SAY TO START A PLAYER WITH A PREDICTED SCORE LOWER THAN A SECOND PLAYER?
Usually this happens because the algorithm predicts that a player (usually a goalie) will play the full game or not feature at all.
Player A – AdjP high, xM very low – RMT score low
Player B – Average AdjP, very high xM – Average RMT score
Although player A is unlikely to play, the most common scenarios are that he will get 90 minutes or none at all. Therefore, RMT thinks it’s worth starting to use the high adjP if he’s playing, otherwise Player B’s safer option will be automatically inserted.
Therefore, he suggests picking player A over B, although the former seems to have a lower score on RMT.
WHEN DO UPDATES HAPPEN?
Although there is no fixed update schedule, it is pretty much continuous.
Monday tends to have a big update after the weekend events. Thursday and Friday will have updates the following evening on any news that emerges from the pre-game press conferences.
CAN I SEE THE FULL LIST OF ALL RMT PLAYERS?
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 ORDER BY SCORES FOR A GAME WEEK?
In the list of all players in RMT or screenings, simply click on the Gameweek header to sort players by predicted score for that Gameweek.
HOW CAN I CHANGE THE GAME WEEKS I VISIT RMT?
At the top of the Rate My Team page, while your team is loaded, you can select ‘First Play Week’ and ‘Last Play Week’. By default, the first Gameweek will be the next Gameweek and the last Gameweek will be in six Gameweeks, but these can be changed manually based on your research.
