Scoring rules and requirements in Fantasy Football
Scoring requirements - In order to score any points for the week, you need to have a complete roster of 15 players (11 starts, plus 4 bench players).
In Fantasy Football, each of your players score fantasy points based on their real-life performance in several statistical categories (each category has a point value associated with it).
Only the points for the 11 players in your starting lineup count, so make sure you're always starting your best players.
|Goal||G||10 points (7 points for Goal, 3 points for "Shot on Target")|
|Match-Winning Goal||MWG||2 extra points|
|Set-Piece Goal||SPG||3 extra points*|
|Shot on Target||SOT||3 points|
|Successful Cross||SC||1 point|
|Winning a Foul||FW||1 points|
|Corners Won||CW||1 point|
|Penalty Kick Missed/Saved||PKM||-5 points|
Set-Piece Goals - SPGs only count when a set-piece kick goes directly into the goal. Corner kicks that are headed in and penalty kicks don't count as SPGs.
|Blocked Shot||BS||2 points|
|Pass Intercepted||PI||1 points|
|Winning a Tackle||TW||1 points|
|Clean Sheet (75+ Minutes Played)||CS||6 points|
|Foul Committed||FC||-1 points|
|Penalty Committed||PC||-3 points|
|Own Goal||OG||-3 points|
|Yellow Card||YC||-3 points|
|Red Card||RC||-6 points|
Clean Sheet - CS rewards defenders for shutting out their opponents. Forwards and midfielders don't get points for a Clean Sheet.
|Penalty Kick Save||PKS||6 points|
|Clean Sheet||CS||6 points|
|Goal Allowed||GA||-3 points|
- Automatic substitution - If a starter doesn't play during a week, the appropriate bench player will automatically be substituted and his points will be added to your team's total.
- Multiple games in a week - If a team plays more than one game in a week, your player will receive all the points earned in all games that week.
- Makeup games - When postponed games are made up, the scoring counts for the week the makeup game is played (not retroactively).
- Transferred players - Players who are transferred out of the league stop earning points but will remain on your team until you replace them.
