FanDuel Soccer was designed to prioritize the same skills and plays that give real soccer players their value. Since the point of the match is ultimately to score, goals scored are weighted the most heavily. But FanDuel Soccer also gives credit to the many less-flashy actions that help lead to — and, on defense, help prevent — goals.
As you start to develop your strategies, pay attention to players who are the most involved in the game’s action, and look for them to rack up points in categories like passes, interceptions, tackles, and especially shots on goal.
ALL players score points for the following events:

Consider these strategy tips as you build your rosters
Premier League teams release lineups an hour before games start. Be sure to wake up to double check your starting lineup before your contest locks. It's also the best time to find bargain plays.
Goalkeepers and defenses who are facing powerhouse teams tend to get more opportunities for saves (for GK) and interceptions and clearances (for DEF). Look for bargains on value defenses, and save your salary for attackers.
Midfielders are the most dependable source for high-upside performances. So pick players who fill the stat sheet, even if they aren’t goal scorers — then look for them to have a huge match if they do put one in the net.
Forwards are the most boom-or-bust performers, since most of their points will come from goals. If you’re entering multiple lineups, consider using different combinations of forwards to expand your likelihood of picking up a hot scorer.
