Score points +
- All your players will score three points for a goal and two points for an assist.
- Goalkeepers and defenders score a total of three points for keeping a clean sheet.
- However, goalkeepers and defenders lose a point for every goal conceded.
Players score points based upon their performances in 2012/13 npower Championship matches only and the new season gets underway at 19:45 on Friday 17th August.
If a player is in your team at the scheduled kick-off time of their match they will be eligible to score you points and their totals are displayed on your Team Page. Your Week (a Fantasy League Game Week runs from Tuesday to Monday), Month and Overall scores are compared to everyone playing the game and the best scoring teams will top the leaderboards.
Here's how your players will score points for your team:
||Completing 45 minutes, not including stoppage or injury time.
||No goals conceded for the duration of the match, having completed at least 75 minutes.
|Clean Sheet Total
||The appearance (also known as a Defender Game Played point) added to the cean sheet makes a total of 3 points.
Don't forget! Your captain's points will be doubled, however this also applies to points lost by goalkeepers and defenders for goals conceded.
In addition, please be aware that points will not be awarded based upon the end of season Play-Off matches.
Points for goals, clean sheets and goals against are now awarded live! Keep track of your team during every match using our brand new free app. Assist points will be allocated on Monday morning following weekend games, and the morning after any midweek matches.

Make Transfers +
- Unlimited transfers are available until the first match of the new season.
- Once the season has begun, you can make a total of 30 transfers.
- A maximum of five transfers are permitted in a month.
If you want to change a player in your team because of form, injury, suspension or because they've left the league, you need to use a transfer. Click on the Make Transfers button (which can be found at the top of the page and beneath the image of your team) and you'll arrive at the Team Changes page. To remove a player from your team, click on the red cross next to their name, then select their replacement from the Player List on the left-hand side and, once you are happy with your line up, hit Submit.
Unlimited transfers are available until the new season gets underway at 19:45 on Friday 17th August and then you're restricted to 30 transfers for the rest of the campaign. You can make up to five transfers in a month, but the season transfer limit means you can't make five transfers every month.
Transfers can be made at any time, but must be completed before the scheduled kick-off time of the incoming player's next match, in order to score points from that match. This means it is possible to make changes between matches. When you make a transfer you must stay within the £10m budget, pick no more than three players from any one club and use either a 4-4-2, 4-3-3 or a 5-3-2 formation.
Changing your captain
You can change your captain right up to the scheduled kick-off time of the first game of a fixture block. This means before the first match of a set of weekend fixtures (Friday to Monday inclusive) and before the first of any midweek matches (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday).
The window for changing your captain will open on Tuesday morning and will remain open until the first match of a Game Week (Tuesday to Monday), which will usually be on a Saturday, unless there is a midweek fixture or a set of midweek fixtures. When there are midweek fixtures the captaincy window will re-open at 00:00:00 (BST/GMT) following the final midweek match.
Your captain will score double points. To change your captain click on Change Captain.
