FPL price changes: Latest Premier League fantasy football risers and fallers

Fantasy Premier League managers know the importance of having the edge on their rivals in the quest for glory.

There are plenty of ways of stealing an advantage, and keeping tabs on price changes is just as important as knowing when to play chips, combing through the fixture list and studying the form guide.

Staying across the market shifts gives you the best chance of maximising your budget. In short, the more risers you have in your ranks, the more room for manouevre when it comes to transfers.

If your squad value is rising, it reflects a habit for ditching the deadwood and getting the right players in at the right time.

The current global leader, Teddy Bears Utd, has a squad value of 101.8 with a spare 3.8 sitting in the bank, proving it really does pay to monitor every ebb and flow of the market.

Price updates are implemented once daily and usually happen at around 0200 GMT. A player’s price can change by no more than 0.1m per day, while 0.3m is the maximum permitted swing in any given gameweek.

Changes hinge on player ownership, meaning it can pay off (pardon the pun) to update your squad well in advance of the deadline to beat the rush.

Here, we will monitor the most up to date shifts in the FPL market so you can find value and gain that all important upper hand.

Selling for a profit

When you sell a player for a profit in FPL, you will only receive 50 per cent of that margin. Clear? Well let’s put it like this: If you buy Sadio Mane for 12.0 and his value rises to 12.4, you will only receive 12.2 should you choose to sell him.

Be warned, profit is rounded down so a player whose value has risen by 0.5 under your watch will only bank you 0.2m in the transfer market. By the same token, a rise of 0.1 is worth nothing to you in terms of boosting your squad value.

The aim is to curb the advantage of those already leading the way and keep squad values within a relatively tight window for the sake of competition.

Price drops are different, however, meaning a sale will cost you 100 per cent of the value lost in the time since you signed a given player. For clarity, if you brought in Bruno Fernandes for 11.5 and he dropped to 11.3 before you decided to cut your losses, you will lose the whole 0.2 when it comes to offloading him.
