Should I play my Free Hit chip in FPL Blank Gameweek 31?

The second and biggest Blank Gameweek of the season takes place this weekend.

Ten teams are without a Premier League fixture due to the clash with the FA Cup quarter-finals, meaning we have just five top-flight matches to choose from as we assemble our Fantasy teams ahead of Saturday’s deadline.

The five fixtures still going ahead are:

While there will be plenty of Fantasy managers who decided on their strategy for Gameweek 31 and beyond some time ago, there are still those amongst us who will be pondering whether to activate our Free Hit chip this weekend.

There may even be a percentage of FPL bosses who a while back decided to use their Free Hit chip in Gameweek 31 (or left themselves open to the possibility) who are now having second thoughts – perhaps if they have, say, five or more active players already or if they are questioning the appeal of the unaffected fixtures.

Certainly, the volume of requests for help in our Comments section and on Google suggests there is still a degree of uncertainty among some members of the Fantasy community.

How Fantasy Football Scout users are approaching Gameweek 31

Last week we ran two specific polls on Gameweek 31, asking Fantasy Football Scout users first for how many players they plan to field this weekend and secondly for how many points they’d be willing to sacrifice in FPL hits if they are instead planning to Free Hit in Gameweek 32.

The results as of March 11 are as follows:


Almost one-third (32.05%) of Fantasy managers polled planned to field nine or fewer active players in Blank Gameweek 31.

Over one-third (37.97%) aim to have a full starting XI with a league fixture (possibly with the use of the Free Hit chip), while just under 30% hope to have ten players in action.

Among those managers who still have the Free Hit chip and who are planning on instead using it in the as-yet-to-be-fully-announced Double Gameweek 32, over 70% will be taking at least a -4 hit.

A not insignificant 28.72% plan to take a hit of -8 or worse, meanwhile.

How the top 10,000 FPL managers currently shape up ahead of Gameweek 31

On Saturday we ran our regular top 10k metrics article, which uses data mined from Ragabolly’s site.

After a bit of number crunching, we now know that, as of the Gameweek 30 deadline, the top 10,000 Fantasy managers in the world had an average of 7.77 “active” players in their squads for Blank Gameweek 31.

By active, we mean Fantasy assets whose clubs have a fixture in Gameweek 31 – what that figure doesn’t show is any flagged FPL players (be it through injury, suspension or Aboubakar Kamara-type unavailability), non-playing bench fodder or incidences of two goalkeepers being selected from the same club.

Those variables will likely lower the current average to nearer the 7.00 mark, pre-Gameweek 31 transfers.

A team-by-team breakdown of the ten clubs in action this weekend reads as follows:

TeamAvg no. of players in top 10k squads
Bournemouth0.68
Burnley0.23
Chelsea0.79
Everton0.37
Fulham0.07
Huddersfield Town0.30
Leicester City0.87
Liverpool2.71
Newcastle United0.58
West Ham United1.17

Many Fantasy managers in this sample of the world’s leading 10,000 managers already have a triple-up on Liverpool, with West Ham, Leicester, Chelsea and Bournemouth some distance behind as the next-most-popular clubs who have a fixture in Gameweek 31.

Free Hit in Gameweek 31 as part of a wider strategy

Three weeks ago we outlined the pros and cons of three different chip strategies that Fantasy managers may decide to use going into the blanks and doubles ahead.

Strategy 3 in the linked article incorporated using the Free Hit chip in Blank Gameweek 31 as part of a wider approach.

We’d certainly urge anyone thinking of that strategy (or something similar) to look at the advantages and disadvantages of the different scenarios – not that those approaches are the only ones.

Many of the pros and cons in that piece are still valid but an additional downside to the “building for Double Gameweek 32” strategy is that we won’t know the exact details of that Gameweek until the rearranged fixtures are announced some time after the FA Cup semi-final draw has been made (next Monday at the earliest).

Final Thoughts

As ever, there isn’t a definitive answer to a question such as this.

Opinions on strategies are subjective and completely dependent on an individual’s Fantasy squad.

FPL bosses probably need to ask themselves a number of initial questions going into this weekend:

  • How many players could I get out using free transfers or perhaps by taking a points hit?
  • Do I still have my other chips available?
  • What is my wider approach to the season run-in beyond Gameweek 31, including how do I tackle Gameweek 33 when many of the same clubs will blank again?
  • Do I think the players I can draft in on a Free Hit in Gameweek 31 are worth building a team around and sacrificing a chip for?

Fantasy managers perhaps needn’t think that a full starting XI is a necessity this weekend: the results of our FFS poll and analysis of the top 10k shows that there are plenty of managers, even the high-flying ones, who won’t be able – or are choosing not – to do so.

Of course, should an FPL boss be in a position where they may only currently have two or three assets in action, then the Free Hit chip looks all-the-more enticing.

While there is plenty to be gained by being able to cherry-pick 11 players this weekend, it could be argued that a higher points ceiling exists by deploying the Free Hit chip in a Double Gameweek (likely to be Gameweeks 32 and 35). The counterpoint to that argument, of course, is that Bench Boost or Triple Captain couldn’t be used in the same Gameweek.

An example of a Free Hit starting XI this weekend might be something like:

Fabianski; Robertson, Luiz, Rice; Salah, Mane, Hazard, Brooks; Wilson, Higuain, Vardy.

Fantasy managers perhaps need to also ask themselves:

  • How many players from a Free Hit team such as this do they already have
  • How many would they realistically want (e.g. are Leicester defenders/West Ham midfielders worth it given their current form?)
  • How many points they could see this sort of team scoring versus how many they predict their own current team will rack up
  • Whether any potential drop in overall rank this week could be more than compensated by using a Free Hit chip further down the line

As ever, the “right” approach regarding the Free Hit chip will differ from manager to manager. Hopefully, some of the pointers listed above can help those FPL bosses who are still wavering come to a final decision.

      United will be ahead of Arsenal as they seem to be playing together for the team. Spurs seems to be bit too tired imo.

      Am i only one thinking he was asking for the Sky Sports predictions for the 6 matches tonight, rather than the top 6??

        Yes, this is what the Super 6 is....

        Since when has anyone called the top 6 the super 6? That’s ridic

    Aguero to Vardy worth a -8 to get to 10 players. Or is 9 players ok? Technically a -8 this week is only worth -2 if my three replacements have a game, but it's just whether I want to lose a bit of value on Aguero ahead of my FH in 32. Team:

    Boruc
    TAA Luiz Digne (Simpson, WanBiss)
    Salah Mane Almiron Fraser (Pogba)
    Higuain (Aguero, Jimi)

    1. captainjilflex
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I dont think a -8 is worth it for 1 extra player.

      1. Cruz88
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Well the -8 was for three extra players 🙂 I took Deu and Ethridge out for Boruc and Fraser for the -4

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Aguero to Vardy is just a -4 and it will be for week 33 as well so I'd say yes.

  3. SirT83
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    I hav Vardy, Rondon and Arnie up top. And this is my dilemma...

    A: Transfer Rondon and Arnie out for Wilson and Higuain, - 4
    B: Rondon out for Higuain
    C: Arnie out for Higuain

    1. Ritchies Magic Hat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Why transfer out non-blanking players who could score? Could you make other transfers to cover the Che/Bou attack i.e Hazard/Brooks instead

      1. captainjilflex
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        This ^

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I wouldnt do this if I had non starters...

      2. SirT83
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Cause I allready have 12 players starting and want to improve my team. Have Hazard and Fraser.

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Certainly not B
      C perhaps

      Higuain has only performed twice - against Huddersfield and Fulham. He's not must have territory.

      Everyone is getting excited about Wilson but he only matched what Rondon did against Huddersfield. And well Bournemouth are less exciting at home as an attacking force than some imagine.Good but

    3. Eytexi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Neither? Neither blank, seems a waste of 4 points to sell either.

      1. SirT83
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I get your point. However I do this in preparation for upcoming GWs. I'll be FH next week, which stops me from making transfers.

        1. Eytexi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Ahh so you have a transfer to burn and 11 players already?

          1. SirT83
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Yes.

            1. Eytexi
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Same situation here: think I'm going to do King to Wilson haha. Can you not manage Rondon to Wilson?

              1. SirT83
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                1 year, 3 months ago

                I most certainly can. I've been thinking about that myself, but I do need the differential in Higuain for my mini league. It's make or break time. 🙂

                1. Eytexi
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  1 year, 3 months ago

                  Fair enough, Rondon out then imo 🙂

  4. dark91
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Why does the poll mention "vote for this option if you plan to use the FH chip" ?!!

    What about those fielding 11 without using it?

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes, a little strange. Surely an option of “I am using the FH chip” would have been better?

      1. dark91
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yes irrespective of how many players you will field.

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yes, it makes no sense at all to lump them together.

  5. JJO
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Is there a defender worth bringing in for -4 for bgw?

    1. JBG
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Luiz, Azpi or LFC defence only worth it imo.

    2. captainjilflex
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Im thinking Rice or Ake

    3. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Thinking the same thing. If it was City vs Huddersfield, then yeah . But Liverpool vs Fulham, idk. They're attack looked very decent, wondering if its worth a -4. Chelsea-Everton im also put off for same reasons.
      No clear imo who is certain to get a CS, and thats whats putting me off taking the hit.

      1. JJO
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Exactly my thoughts
        Maybe just pick 1 and hope for CS or attacking return in gw31/33

    4. Dupuytrens
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      lots ! who do you have ?

    5. JJO
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Yeah I forgot to say no Liverpool,already have 3 players
      Maybe take into calculation gw33 too...but still cant decide which one could be good option

    6. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Not for me unless you are looking at Liverpool

      Easy enough for any other team to concede two and then you don't get the 2 points appearance.

  6. The Overthinker - I blame R…
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Jiminez to chicharito yaay or naay?

    1. captainjilflex
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Not if you have value tied up in Jimenez

      1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I thought the game was about points

        1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Aah cheers. This was unanimous.

          Guess I should just leave the team as it is.

          Cheers guys

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          It is about points. Jimenez could still score many points and can you sell and find near 0.5m for many to buy back?

          1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            Jimi has 2 fixtures in 4 and chicharito had 4 in 4 . On paper chicharito outscores Jimmy .

            And yeah money not an issue

            1. Kiwivillan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              Chicharito can't score in a brothel atm

        3. captainjilflex
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I mean if you want Jimenez back for the dgw then do you want to pay .5 more??

    2. Ritchies Magic Hat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I considered it last week, glad I didn’t! Feels risky with Arnie possibility of playing

    3. wernerhedgehog

      Nope.

    5. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      No way

      He is not tied on for 60 minutes - any other forward you care to name apart from Arnie

    Quick questions

    1. Vardy or Wilson for gw 31 & 33?
    2. Barnes > Vardy or Wilson(whoever you don't choose in 1) worth a hit

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      1 wait and see - my money is on Vardy if only because he has Huddersfield to come
      2 No

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      1) Wilson (mainly because BOU have 2 home games)
      2) Yes, I would wager

  11. Rasping Drive

      You could be top 5k next week...you could also be 100k next week.

    Will you get David Luiz in for a -4? Thanks.

      Think id favour azpi as better chance of attacking returns. Chelsea will concede imo

    2. pingissimus

      Nope

      Easy enough to see Everton scoring two so he loses his appearance points, Attacking returns can happen of course but big gamble for that to happen in next two games.

      No, I already own him.

      Depends on your chip strategy and how many players you have whether you should get him.

    Morning,

    Want to transfer out son but for who? I already have 3 pool (3 def 1 mid) so they are not an option.

    A. Barnes
    B. Madison
    C. Fraser

    A and C would leave me enough to upgrade peltier to maybe azpi Luiz or rude

    Guys I am planning to FH 32, WC in 33, BB 34 and TC in 35.

    Reason I am doing the WC earlier is so I can use up my BB in 34 otherwise I lose out the chance for a TC in 35.

    Thoughts?

        City play twice so either Kun or Sterling. I made a big mistake not having either when City played Arsenal and Chelsea in the last DGW and I paid for it badly

    Subject to FA Cup results and my specific team, I am coming round to the idea of WC32 & FH33 🙂

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I've been looking at that for a while.

      One big one is the Brighton and Palace cup matches which could turn things on their head in 32/3. If Spurs get Brighton in 33 at home then I'm looking at FH32 WC33

      I don't like the look of likely DGW35 at all and I may just ignore it as a DGW. City United and Spurs assets are next to useless that week but have otherwise decent looking fixtures.

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        My GW31 team has no Bourenmouth, Arsenal (or Spurs) at the moment so not potentially great for 33, when we know who has a double in 32 & 35 I reckon I can get a 32 WC team to 35 with maybe 3 transfers.

        On that basis, my WC32 & FH33 team will be stronger than my FH32 & 33 team .... and I don’t think there will be much between my team & WC team in 34/35.

        Also I get to maximise my TV with a WC in 32 to help the FH in 33 and will already have the premium players people will be buying in 34 & 35

  24. Rinseboy

    How's this looking for a -4? Any other hits needed?

    Lossl 
    Azpi Robbo Yedlin
    Haz Salah Mane McNeil
    Rondon King Vardy
    Hamer Pogba Doherty AWB

  25. cbazza10

    Free hit in 32 or 35 sounding better? Still have a triple captain and bench boost. No wildcards.

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      We don’t know the doubles so impossible to answer

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Well we do know 35 is pretty much a write off for City and United.

        United - City
        City - Spurs
        Everton - United

        And 32 is looking good for them.

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          As I said, we don’t know the doubles 🙂

          actually there could be a triple or other doubles outside 32 & 35, and we don’t know the split of 32 / 35 ... so deciding whether to FH in 32 or 35 is difficult to ascertain, unless you have some other information ?

          1. Kiwivillan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 year, 3 months ago

            We have a reasonable idea

            1. Hotdogs for Tea
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 3 months ago

              I planned transfers last year on a ‘reasonable idea’ of where the doubles would go and two rogue allocation of games that went the other way basically threw my plans completely out and probably cost me 30 - 50 points.

              If any one fancies specifically planning for the doubles then I sincerely wish them the best of luck 🙂

  26. MESSINHO
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Fabianski (Button*)
    TAA - Digne - Pereira (AWB* - Doherty*)
    Salah - Hazard - Siggy (Pogba* - Hojbjerg*)
    King (Agüero* - Jimenez*)

    Bar any injuries, I'm almost certainly bringing in Mane and Vardy for Pogba and Kun.

    What other move would you make?

    A) AWB -> Luiz/Azpi (-4)
    B) Hojbjerg -> Fraser/Maddison (-4)
    C) Don't take a hit.

    What fixtures have the potential to be added to GW32?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      City game from 33
      Brighton game from 33
      Palace or Watford game from 33

  28. sunzip14
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    I am fielding 14 active players for 31 without any hits or using FH. I have no option to vote for question 1 😛

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      What's rank though?

  29. FlashG
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Decided to bring in Wilson for Jiminez even though .4m loss!

    That gives me 10 players however this includes Richarlison who has Chelsea and Arsenal 31/33. I know he did okay last week but not convinced by him at all or Everton.

    For a -4 hit do I:
    a) sell him for Fraser (already got Brooks)
    b) sell for someone else (poss wham mid)
    c) keep and get a Chelsea defender instead fielding 11 players
    d) stick with 10 players (2-4-3)

  30. HAMMERTIME107
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Only got 10 players this week but how does this look please?

    Boruc
    Alexander-Arnold | Ogbonna
    Salah | Hayden | Pedro | Fraser/Antonio?
    King | Firminho | Vardy
