Elevate your game with Premier Fantasy Tools. It’s a chance to discover the advanced tool set for sophisticated Fantasy Football managers, optimise your FPL routine and maximise planning time between Gameweeks with leading analysis. Popular tools include FPL Live Rank, FPL Planner, Team Analyzer and Fixture Difficulty.

How can Premier Fantasy Tools make you a better manager?

PFT offers a variety of aids to cover all your team management needs. A proprietary algorithm powers the captain and transfer recommendations, as with fixture difficulty ratings. For managers that plan ahead, FPL Planning Tools will help you solidify your plan and test different strategies ahead of time. Those that like to ‘follow’ the top managers will be interested in the FPL Manager Tracker and All-Time Ranking lists, allowing you to have a weekly routine of checking-in on your favourite top managers.

The website also offers tools to analyse past performance so you can learn from previous successes or failures. The FPL Team Analyzer and Hindsight Dream Team devices show detailed analysis of your team and highlights potential areas of improvement.

FPL Team Planner

Using the FPL Team Planner, you can plan transfers, rotation, wildcards, bench strategies and more across Gameweeks. You can even plan all 38 in advance. Try out different scenarios to see what works best.

Interactive Fixture Difficulty Tool

Determine which Premier League teams have the best schedules, in order to make informed transfer decisions and plan team rotation weeks in advance.

Includes Gameweek deadlines and kick-off times so you have all the FPL fixture info in one table!

  • Toggle attack and defence ratings

Hindsight Dream Team

Analyse your Gameweeks for the best possible squad you could have picked. What if you had captained Mohamed Salah instead of Bruno Fernandes? What if you benched Son Heung-min instead of Roberto Firmino? See what could have been had you made optimal choices each week.

Captain Tools

Analyse your captaincy picks for the current season to identify which armband choices were a success and which were failures. Furthermore, you can get an overall points contribution score for your captain picks.

Potential captain picks for the upcoming Gameweek can be ranked. Either import your current team to have the tool suggest the best option, or add players manually to consider additions to the team.

See the top captain pickers – this list consists of the top managers based on captain picking performance within the current season.

Transfer Tools

This tool recommends transfers for your current FPL team once you have imported it. It suggests two options per player – a performance transfer (maximises expected points) and a value transfer (maximises expected points-per-pound).

Use the Transfer Analyzer to identify successes and failures, getting an overall points contribution score for your deals.

All-time Rankings

See the top 250 managers of all-time based on performance within the current season, plus previous campaigns. You can also see the rankings by country here.
