How FPL managers plan to tackle Blank Gameweek 31

Fantasy Football Scout users are keen to find out the consensus on many issues connected with Blank Gameweek 31.

Most of us have either two or three remaining free transfers before that depleted round of action, so time is running out to prepare for it.

In our first week of Fantasy Premier League Think Tank articles, we have received some great polls that you want answers for.

We have embedded them in the article below so you can all cast your votes to each question.

Hopefully, it will help us get a feel for how the FFS community plans to tackle the biggest talking points in FPL right now.

TrippierHazard has asked us to register what our current thoughts are on the chip strategy for Blank and Doubles season.

With the Free Hit perhaps one of the most important chips during this year’s ‘chip season’, Pranavs9 has asked when the best time to deploy it is.

Both AK and ladsandlasses were interested to see how we were approaching the Liverpool triple-up…

MikeBravo has been wondering what the consensus is on the out-of-form Felipe Anderson (£7.2m) considering his fixtures in both Blank Gameweeks.

The_Fish has been looking at those who aren’t playing in those Blanks, especially those who we have valued tied up in.

Dan United and shaun_drift are keen to know how many players managers will be planning to field in Blank Gameweek 31.

Said_LFC and Kiwivillain have been thinking about how managers will facilitate those Blank Gameweek 31 squads in relation to the free transfers available between now and then.

KOPKLOPPERS is asking what our thoughts are on Everton, who haven’t exactly thrilled Fantasy managers of late but do play in Blank Gameweeks 31 and 33.

mcbain1234 has a question about the Triple Captain chip, which, as yet, does not have an obvious home this season…

Finally, like many of us, Vobinho has been looking at West Ham options and wonders what we are thinking about Marko Arnautovic (£6.8m).

      Christensen also played tongiht tho. So would make sense to just play Rudiger and Luiz at the weekend. But yeah, rudiger clearly safest

      Nah, they both just got a rest is all and Christensen is very good and deserves to play some games. They'll both start Sunday. Rüdiger is more nailed but only because he is much younger. Luiz won't miss many in the PL anyway.

    Love this new survey format. Would happily have several of these every day, if it cuts down on the repetitive questions in the threads.
