Fantasy Premier League Draft is back for 2018/19, offering a different way to play the world’s most popular Fantasy game.

The game is free to play and you can register your team before the next Gameweek's deadline.

FPL Draft runs alongside the Fantasy Premier League season and uses the same scoring system.

Fantasy managers also pick a 15-man squad.

But there is one big difference. Each player can be owned by only one manager in each mini-league.

No budgets

There are no player prices and no budgets in FPL Draft, with managers using a draft system to build their opening squads.

In the draft, each manager takes their turn to select players over 15 rounds.

The order of picks is decided randomly at first and will then "snake" from round to round, with the order of selection reversed each time.


Round 1: Team A, Team B, Team C, Team D.
Round 2: Team D, Team C, Team B, Team A.

Sign up

If you are not yet signed up to Fantasy Premier League you will need to register an account.

Then you just name your team and join a league.

Private and public leagues

You can create a private league of up to 16 managers and invite friends to get involved. Or you can join one they have set up using the league code.

You can also choose to be in a public league that has four, six or eight managers.

The date of the draft is set by the league administrator, while drafts in public leagues will take place within 30 minutes after the first team joins.

How to use watchlist

Before the draft, Fantasy managers can build a watchlist of players to pinpoint key targets.

This watchlist will be used to automatically select a player if you are not available to make a pick.

Once the draft has finished, you can change your squad before and during the season using waiver requests or by signing players who are free agents.

New rules

There are two new rules managers should be aware of.

Draft managers will be able to trade players with their mini-league rivals.

There is also the opportunity to take part in a mock draft, allowing you to experience the draft process before doing one for real.
