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

Our series of articles on the best Free Hit squad for Blank Gameweek 31 continues today with a look at midfielders.

Using data that can be found in the Fantasy Football Scout members area we have assessed which options are the most likely to find the back of the net, offer assists, or provide a combination of both.

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

    Morning chaps.
    I have 5 players for gw31: taa, robertson, anderson, sterking, king + 2FT.
    Ive also got sterling, rashford, jimi and doherty.
    Worth a FH this gw? It seems daft to transfer out players with 2 games in gw32 like doherty and jimi.
    Thanks

      FH next gw.
      Take a hit this gw

      1. jaywills
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        How many points should I hit on?

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 8 days ago

          I would not hesitate on taking hits for attackers like Wilson,vardy, Fraser , hazard etc.
          You can take 1/2 hits & field 8/9 this gw.
          Get Mane of you don't have 3 pool player's

            • 3 Years

            Thanks. I can get 9 players out with a -8.
            Or 8 players with a -4.
            Tough decision!

    G2G... or Pogba > Hazard? -4

    Fabianski,
    VVD, Azpi, Pereira, Balbuena
    Mane, Fraser, Salah(C)
    Wilson, Higuain, Vardy

    Button, Puncheon, Pogba, Bennett

    Hi guys, GTG?
    10/11
    Fabianski
    VVD Digne Clyne
    Hazard Mane Salah
    Wilson Arnatuovic Higuain

    1. aleksios

      yeap

  4. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Currently on a -4 with this motley crew:

    Boruc
    Robbo Pereira Stankovic
    Fanderson Salah Mane Brooks
    Wilson Vardy

    9 players (+ Stankovic - not sure if he really counts)

    The only none-player from the rest of my squad I'm willing to lose is Schar (sus).

    Shar to Rice (or someone else?) for another -4 worth it?

    Yey or nay?

    Thanks in advance

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Schar to Rice could well work out being HUD and all

    This has to be one of the most boring GWs ever and is going to be such a damp squib FPL wise. Roll on GW32 as I've a heap of money(SV) to invest in my FH team ๐Ÿ™‚

    What's your current SV guys?

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Yeah. I was wondering about it.
            Actually I've learned a lot this year from this community ๐Ÿ˜€
            Previous years i only used to think about next gw & take hits every week.
            First time ever i played a WC strategically in gw 5 looking for next 5-6 fixtures as box.

            I'm looking forward to FH next gw & WC in 33/34 now to use the SV I've got.
            Cheers mate

      SV might undercall your FH capability, it would assume you want none of your current squad to be in your FH32 squad... many will have TV locked up in their 3x outfield GW31 benchers.... three of the likes of Pogba, Sterling, Kun, Rashford, Doherty etc, could easily add >2.0m above SV for your FH32

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        I have Sterling, Pogba and AWB on my bench this week and they will likely be part of my FH team regardless

      2. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        This is true. Hence, Aguero out this week.

        Bench this week will be Hamer,AWB,Doherty,Pogba so a bit of value on the bench.
        Think I’m selling Doherty next week on FH. Might only get one of the 2 games.

            Haha, true, but still a good rank to kick on from. I will need to spend some of my points in the future with no WC left so swings and roundabouts, GL!

        Sorry Rash and Jimi. Wanted Wilson to get 11 this week. Not sure a great idea as I have no FH chip

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      They should have signed De Jong. Fernandinho will be 34 next year and Ilkay may leave. Other than that, if they do not loose any players they have a great squad to handle at least a couple of years.

    do we expect an update on higuain's status today from sarri?

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years

      Is he injured?

      1. Amey

        ill

  8. Lumberjack
    • 4 Years

    Is Billing to Brooks worth a hit? Would be a proper old-fashioned -4!

    A - yes
    B - No

    1. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      If it is the only hit you get, I would try

      1. Lumberjack
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        It would be. Thanks.

  9. fenixri
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    A) 9 players for -4
    B) 10 players for -8

    1. Lumberjack
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Depends on the players

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Depends on the 10th players. If he is one of Wilson, Fraser, Hazard, Mane, Vardy or like then B

    3. fenixri
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Fab
      Robbo Taa Pereira
      Salah Hazard Fraser
      Wilson Higuain

      This is -4,

      I can bring Arnie for -8

  10. OzilFozzil
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Who's the best defender out of this lot?

    A) Daniels
    B) Ake
    C) Luiz
    D) Azpi

    1. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      D

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Azpi in real life
      Luiz in fpl (due to FK duties & goal threat on corners compared to Assist threat from Azpi)

    3. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Azpi is the best defender of those 4, but I'd do Luiz because he's got more attacking appeal.

    4. OzilFozzil
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I should have put a caveat better *FPL* defender...

      But looks like its Luiz

      Prob the same as last week and all season, unless they change?

  12. FPLAdmiral
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    A little help chaps. Plan to FH in GW32, have the below team with no hits.

    (A) AWB > Luiz (-4)
    (B) Hold (10 starters)

    Fabianski
    TAA, Robertson, Perreira
    Hazard, Salah, Brooks, F.Anderson
    Wilson, Vardy

    (Button)(Jimenez, Doherty, AWB, Pogba)

    1. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I’d do it

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Wait till deadline as we might know whether Awb play in gw 33 or not as their FA cup match is before FPL deadline.

      If palace go through to SF, A is a good transfer imo

      1. FPLAdmiral
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Good call, didn’t think of that!

  13. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Maddison or Fraser?

    Have Brooks & Wilson.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      And Vardy too.

    2. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Hudds in 33 swings it for Maddison for me

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Maddison
      Burnley vulnerable to set pieces & Hudds are ...

    1. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I thought about this but it would be for -4 for me or only fielding 10.
      Was a close call but decided against it.
      If it’s for free then maybe.

      1. Concrete
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers...it’s part of hits and will mean fielding 9

        See what rivals are up to first

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      You got what you got.
      I have Mane Salah and Robbo.
      I don't really want Salah

  15. bitm2007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    For blank GW's only

    A) Mepham (NEW, BUR)

    B) Rice (HUD, che)

    1. Concrete
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Never heard of A but if he’s nailed then him due to fixtures

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Mepham was purchased form Brentford in January, and has stated the last 4 for Bournemouth.

        Yeah, meant as cap.

    2. Super Saints

      Mane I think

      1. Royal5
