The best defenders to sign with the Free Hit chip in Blank Gameweek 31

We are continuing our series of articles on the best Free Hit squad for Blank Gameweek 31 with a look at defenders.

Using data from the Fantasy Football Scout members area we have picked out which stoppers are shaping up the best for goal threat, creativity and clean sheet potential in this depleted weekend of fixtures.

That has also helped us answer the tough question over which of the Liverpool defenders is the best to own for Blank Gameweek 31.

Members can read on and take in our analysis, but those without membership can still enjoy Tuesday’s article on goalkeepers for free.

    Only six starters for GW31. Assuming no Liverpool injuries tonight, how should I use my 1 FT? 6.3 ITB. Only interested in selling Doherty or McArthur.

    Robertson
    Mane - Salah - Brooks
    Vardy - Barnes

    Guaita - Patricio
    Shaw - AWB - Bednarek - Doherty
    Pog - McArthur
    Jiminez

    My GW 31 Team
    -
    Robertson, TAA
    Salah, Brooks, Maddison
    Vardy Barnes

    Patricio Guaita AWB Shaw Doherty Son Pogba Rashford

    Should I:
    a) Son, Rashford > Hazard, Wilson -4 for 9 Starters
    b) Son, Rashford, Shaw > Fraser, Higuain, Luiz -8 for 10 Starters
    c) Something else?

    A - Use FH
    B - Doherty > Perreria
    C - McArthur > Fraser

    Robertson
    Mane - Salah - Brooks
    Vardy - Barnes

    Guaita - Patricio

      C, though maybe consider taking a hit though maybe not for Perreira?

        Patricio is one I'd like to replace but I don't like any of the GW31 keepers longer term. Fabianski maybe for saves but cleanies are hard to come by.

    I doing my free hit 32 than wildcard 34

      Ok

    Duffy and Lacazette for Wilson and Azpi for a -4? Worth it?

  7. OleGGMU
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Thoughts on TAA ,is he a lock now that the hendo injury might see milner and fabinho play in mid?

    I have robbo and vvd, but considering vvd out for TAA , was gonna get him initially but i was and still am a bit sceptical about potential surpise rotation

    My FH team:

    Fabianski

    TAA - Chilwell - Rice

    Hazard - mane - Fraser - Salah

    Wilson - Vardy - Higuain

    Any comments on this FH team?

    I am concerned TAA may be rotated - any comments on this?

    Also is it wise to take out Higuain - FPL states "illness"

    Thanks alot!

      Get VVD or Robbo instead of TAA then.

      Similar to mine. Hesitating between Higuain and Arnautovic though.

      Same midfiled but that’s obvious

    On a FH ...

    I keep seeing Fraser on many fantasy teams for this week, but team news and injury indicates a knock. Confidence on Fraser starting? Maddison instead?

    thx
