This article outlines the ins and outs of the 'Standard EPL Draft' Scoring System used by the Draft Fantasy and FPL Draft platforms. This scoring system is essentially the same as on the Official FPL game that millions of people play, although Draft Fantasy does include some small differences and customization options.
Read below for all the details on how the Standard EPL Draft Scoring System works!
Standard EPL Draft Scoring System
As we said above, this scoring system is the one used by the Official FPL game. Basically players are rewarded for Goals, Assists, and Clean Sheets, as well as minor aspects of play such as appearance points, saves (GKs only) and bonus points. The Draft Fantasy platform also features 'Kante Points' which can be assigned for an accumulation of Tackles and Interceptions.

The Scoring Categories Explained
So, now lets quickly talk you through the different scoring categories, with a very basic interpretation of what they actually mean!
Goals and Assists: We all know what these mean... they are key to the Standard EPL Draft Scoring System!
Clean Sheets: When the team a player plays for doesn't concede a goal. A player has to be on the field for 60 minutes (not including added time) to qualify for clean sheet points. Along with goals and assists, a key aspect of this scoring system.
Penalty Kick Missed: When a player misses a penalty.
For Playing up to 60 Minutes: If a player features for between 1 and 59 minutes, they receive one point for their appearance. Added time at the end of the game doesn't apply.
For Playing 60 Minutes or more: If a player features for 60 minutes or more, they receive two points for their appearance. Added time at the end of the game doesn't apply.
Own Goals: When a players scores an own goal.
Yellow Cards: When a player receives a yellow card. Red Cards: When a player receives a red card.
For Every 2 Goals Conceded: Defenders and Goalkeepers receive minus one point when their team concedes two goals. If a team concedes three goals, the players receive minus one point, but if a team concedes fours goals, the players receive minus two points.
For Every 3 Saves: One point is awarded when a goalkeeper saves three attempts on goal. If they makes five saves, they only qualify for one point. If they made a sixth save, they would qualify for two points. Penalty Saved: When a goalkeeper saves a penalty.
Bonus Points: These are the bonus points added by the Official FPL game, which are determined by the Bonus Points System (BPS). The top three BPS scoring players are rewarded with three, two and one additional point.
