Our Scoring System is based on the idea that every user should have some chance to win at Daily Fantasy Soccer. Even if you are a beginner it can be easy to understand the rules behind our system. Lets start with the different positions which are the Goalkeeper, the Defender, the Midfielder and the Forward.
The Goalkeeper is one of the key positions for every game. He rarely will be substituted and he can get you a lot of points for clean sheets. Every game where he keeps his clean sheet he will score +40 points. Also it´s not impossible that the Goalkeeper will try to assist a goal, for every assist he will gain +40 points aswell. We tried to balance the points which he is getting for clean sheets, assists or even goals with the point system for the other positions of the game.
A good defense is sometimes the key factor for a winning team on some matchdays. Like the goalkeeper the defender will get really infrequent substituted, especially the central defenders are known for staying on the field. If you have a very dangerous defender who scores some goals over the season after corners or is shooting the penalties you have a huge advantage most of the time. For every goal a defender scores he gets +40p. and every clean sheet is worth +30p.
There are a lot of different midfielders in football, we have the wings (left and right midfielders), the defensive midfielders and the offensive midfielders who normally are scoring the most goals. In general the wings are doing the most assists over the season which are worth +20p.. The midfielder also benefits from a clean sheet which is worth +20p.. The reason why we decided to allow midfielders to get bonus points for a clean sheet is that in general they get substituted very often.
The Forward is getting the most points if the coach decides to let him play through the whole game, if he plays the complete 90min (or longer) he gets +15p. On top of that he gets bonus points for goal scoring (+25p.) and for assists (+15p.). The position of the forward is a really difficult one because it depends massively on the team performance how much points he will earn in a specific game and will be very variable during the season.
