Bonus points are a key ingredient of the scoring in Fantasy Premier League.
They are devised and allocated post-match according to a Bonus Points System (BPS).
The BPS utilises a range of statistics supplied by Opta that capture actions on the pitch, to create a performance score for every player. The players with the top three BPS in a given match receive bonus points – three points to the highest-scoring player, two to the second best and one to the third.
Bonus point ties are resolved as follows:
– If there is a tie for first place, Players 1 & 2 will receive 3 points each and Player 3 will receive 1 point.- If there is a tie for second place, Player 1 will receive 3 points and Players 2 and 3 will receive 2 points each.
– If there is a tie for third place, Player 1 will receive 3 points, Player 2 will receive 2 points and Players 3 & 4 will receive 1 point each.
Players earn BPS points based on the following statistics (one point for each unless otherwise stated):
