Why have the points increased over the years?

You may have noticed that there’s a vast difference in points between the winner in 2002-03 compared to 2022-23. A difference not far off 1,000 points. Whilst it’s true that more players, means more combinations and therefore a higher chance of bigger scores year on year, there’s also other reasons.

The 2002-03 season is an anomaly. This was the first ever season of FPL and in order to ensure new players could learn the game, they included a pre-season of 6 weeks (running from GW1-7. This meant that the 2002-03 season was only 32 gameweeks long, and therefore led to a lower winning score.

Another reason is due to rule changes. In 2004-5 we saw the introduction of bonus points, in 2008-09 the introduction of a wildcard, in 2015-16 the introduction of 3 new chips, etc. Lots of rule changes has led to different winners essentially playing different versions of the game.
