FPL Best Value Players (Points per Million) – Live Data

There is nothing more important in Fantasy Premier League than points. After all, they are the very thing that determines the best FPL manager come the end of the season.

Unfortunately, you don’t have an unlimited budget in FPL, though. Player value must be considered.

The ‘points per million’ and ‘points per game’ metrics in the table below will help you determine the best value players in the game.

Fantasy Premier League Points per Million – Live Data


The data above is live. The table can be sorted by any of the columns by simply clicking the column header.

A poor run of form, tough fixtures, limited minutes, or injuries can all contribute to an underplayed points total. That’s why it is vital to look beyond just the ‘points’ metric.

Points or Price?

Obviously, price is a huge factor in whether a player is a viable pick.

That means the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah may seem the best picks but assets such as Virgil Van Dijk actually have better ‘points per £m’.

With that said though, there is a trade-off between points and points per million.

If, for example, you have £7.5m in the bank and have a choice between Trent Alexander-Arnold and a budget defender, logically it would be the former you’d choose.

This is because the budget defender will likely perform better when it comes to points per million but Alexander-Arnold should get more points.

Then there is the ‘points per game’ metric. This becomes relevant several gameweeks into the season when players have picked up injuries.

Naturally, those players are unlikely to sit highly on either points or points per million.

They could feature highly on the points per game, however. While their high score on this could be down to variance, it may also indicate a potentially good pick flying under the radar.
