Given all fixtures have been postponed for Gameweek 7, managers will earn zero points for their players. 

For managers who took a points hit for additional transfers, their Gameweek scores will reflect the points they lost.

What about Head-to-Head leagues?
In Head-to-Head league matches in Fantasy, if neither manager made transfers incurring points deductions that Gameweek, then the matches will be drawn and managers will earn one point each.

What about FPL Draft?
As there are no points deductions for transfers, all matches in Classic and Head-to-Head leagues will be drawn.

What about transfers, Wildcards and chips?
Please note that managers can cancel any Triple Captain or Bench Boost chip they have played ahead of the Gameweek 7 deadline. This deadline 11:00 BST Saturday 10 September.

Managers who have played their Free Hit chips won't be able to cancel them but they will be automatically reinstated after the Gameweek 7 deadline.

Any Triple Captain and Bench Boost chips played in Gameweek 7 will also be reinstated after the deadline.

Wildcards will roll over into the next Gameweek.

What happens to the postponed fixtures? 
The postponed fixtures will be allocated to another date or dates. Points scored in these fixtures will apply to the Gameweek in which the fixtures are played and not to Gameweek 7.

What happens next?
The Premier League will provide further updates during the period of mourning when appropriate.

These are exceptional circumstances, and we appreciate the understanding of FPL managers while the situation evolves.
