FPL Fixture Difficulty Explained

Fixture Difficulty Ranking (FDR) is a must-have tool that enables FPL managers to easily compare all premier league teams’ schedules in one location. It allows for making informed transfer decisions and planning team rotation weeks in advance. The FDR ratings are reviewed and updated after each gameweek. Fixtures are an important consideration when planning out a wilcard team, making transfers, or deciding who to bench. Consider consulting this fixture difficulty ranking chart weekly before finalizing your team.

This tool was created to enhance the official Fantasy Premier League FDR. It builds on the official FPL FDR by providing more up-to-date rankings, having more granular rankings, and considering more factors (see FAQ above for details). The most important differentiation, however, is having rankings by position. This gives FPL managers much more insight into how to organize their teams, which formations to consider, and more.
