How Bench Recommendations Work

  • Team retrieval is available after GW1 deadline. Get your team id by clicking on your points tab in FPL and noting the [ID] value in the URL[ID]/event/#
  • The tool follows the FPL rules to ensure you will have a playable formation
  • The following is considered when making suggestions: upcoming fixture difficulty, player form, chance of playing, points performance so far this season.
  • Unlike most tools, our fixture difficulty considers position, see FDRs by position
  • The tool does not have access to transfers you have made before the deadline in the current gameweek (only what is publicly available); You can add/remove players manually to account for any intra-gameweek transfers
