Players will accrue points based on the position selected regardless of the position they actually play in the game.

RED AND YELLOW CARD DEDUCTIONS

Red card deductions include any points deducted for yellow cards.

CLEAN SHEETS

If a player plays a minimum of 60 minutes and no goals are conceded when the player is on the field, points for a clean sheet will be awarded. Points for clean sheets are awarded for each player when they reach 60 minutes played. If a player is awarded points for a clean sheet and then a goal is conceded while the player is on the field, clean sheet points will be deducted.

PASS PERCENATGE

The equation for pass percentage is accurate passes / total passes x 100.

Example - 6 accurate passes / 10 total passes x 100 = 60%

PASS PERCENTAGE BONUS CALCULATION

If player has attempted >= 20 total passes = pass percentage x 0.1

Example = 60% x 0.1 = 6 points

If player has < 20 total passes = pass percentage x 0.05

Example = 60% x 0.05 = 3 points

The pass percentage bonus is rounded up to the nearest percent i.e 81.9% = 82% etc.
