Pro Pundits - Andy

Should I use my FPL Free Hit chip for Blank Gameweek 31 or hold onto it for later?

With only my Free Hit chip left to use on my Fantasy Premier League team, planning is in some ways a bit easier as there’s no concerns about whether to Bench Boost or Triple Captain in a Double Gameweek or when to plan to Wildcard.

On the other hand, I have to think about how I’m going to manage the rest of the season, especially with no Wildcard.

I want to use this article to talk about whether saving the Free Hit for a Double Gameweek is the ideal scenario, or whether it should be used in Blank Gameweek 31 and my thoughts on both scenarios.

As with any chip strategy, it will be dependent on your own team and how many chips you have left, but hopefully, you can take something from this either way.

In order to provide context to my thoughts, here’s my current situation:

andys-gw30-article

I’m not counting Adama Traoré (£5.8m) as a Blank Gameweek 31 option any longer given the uncertainty of starts.

  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m)
  • Willy Boly (£4.8m)
  • Charlie Taylor (£4.3m)
  • Mohamed Salah (£12.7m)
  • Dwight McNeil (£6.0m)
  • Raúl Jiménez (£8.0m)

With two four-point hits over the next two Gameweeks, I could potentially get to 10 players all playing in Gameweek 31 without using my Free Hit chip.

While they’re not set in stone it’s looking like potentially being:

  • Diogo Jota (£6.4m)
  • Sadio Mané (£12.4m)
  • Troy Deeney (£6.2m)
  • Ben Foster (£4.9m) or Nick Pope (£4.8m)

Is this enough to not Free Hit? Let’s find out…

Benefits of using Free Hit

First of all, the chip would allow me to get the “ideal” team for Blank Gameweek 31. While I’d have ten players in the scenario above I’d have Boly instead of someone like Matt Doherty (£6.2m) for example. I’d definitely be looking at the Irishman if I was Free Hitting.

The obvious benefit is completely ignoring the Blank Gameweek and solely focusing on getting players you want for the short and long-term.

An example of this is Marcos Alonso (£6.1m) who’s been in fine form recently and plays Aston Villa next. Saving the chip would mean he wouldn’t be on my radar until Gameweek 32 at the earliest.

The chip will also potentially straight away save you a certain amount of points. In my scenario I’d have to spend eight points to get 10 players. The Free Hit chip would save me eight points, plus the appearance points (you’d hope your player would get them at least!) of the additional players you could get, plus any returns they get as well.

So already you’re on potentially 10+ points, without even taking into account defensive and attacking returns.

Benefits of Saving Free Hit

Premium midfielders with appealing matches headline Gameweek 26 Scout Picks

There’s nothing to say you have to have 11 players being fielded in Gameweek 31. If you can get to eight or nine players without a hit and you’re happy with the quality you have, it could be worthwhile saving the chip for a later stage.

There are only eight teams and four matches to pick from so at some stage you’re likely to have attackers playing defenders and vice versa.

While we don’t know exactly how the Double Gameweeks will be scheduled, we do know there’s a good chance of a high amount of the fixtures being put into Gameweek 37.

That’s still eight Gameweeks away, and knowing how quickly things can change in FPL, we just can’t know for definite which players will still be in form, who will be fit, and which teams or even players will have something left to play for.

It’s one of the reasons I used my Bench Boost earlier rather than holding it without a Wildcard. I knew what the situation was for my team right now, I didn’t know how it will be looking several weeks down the line.

If I’m already close to fielding a team I’m happy enough with for Gameweek 31, is there a good reason to use a chip which could benefit me down the line?

If I have the Free Hit in my back pocket, essentially waiting for a rainy day it also means I’m not fixated on bringing in players based around whether they have a Double Gameweek or not later on in the season. I can just get who I need at the time, react to potential smaller Double Gameweeks, and when Gameweek 37 comes around I have the chip if I need it, and if it ends up working out that I don’t need it I have a backup plan which is to use it in Gameweek 38 for some potential big differential options.

You’ll be “stuck” with Blank Gameweek 31 players

One of the key concerns people have with saving the chip is bringing in players just for the Blank Gameweek which you’d then be “stuck” with.

I don’t think there’s much need to discuss Liverpool here as they’re great to own, and most FPL managers likely aren’t concerned with holding Jiménez and a Wolves defender.

Jota has looked in good form recently and I’m not letting a blank against Brighton (home) put me off just yet. There are Europa League fixtures to think about of course, but with Aston Villa (away) straight after the Blank, I’m happy to hold him in the short term.

Deeney and Ismaïla Sarr (£6.3m) have both flourished under Nigel Pearson. Following the Blank Gameweek they have Southampton, Norwich and Newcastle United at home in the following four Gameweeks. These are great fixtures for a team fighting for their Premier League place.

Players like Taylor can be held in squads with little worry as they just enable money to be spent elsewhere.

If you’re going for a full XI then it may leave some slots free for players you potentially don’t want to hold long-term, and this would be worth considering when weighing up your options, as to how many transfers you might have to use after Gameweek 31 to change your squad up again.

Conclusion

I think there are good arguments for both using it and saving it. After writing this I’m still siding with saving it, mostly due to the fact my squad is in good shape and I have all the details for the Blank Gameweek already.

I still don’t feel like I have enough info for the Double Gameweeks and having a Free Hit chip in my back pocket could really help with that.

I’ll also be in a position at the end of the season to know just how different my Double Gameweek side needs to be to get that last boost up the ranks. With lots of big teams having Double Gameweek fixtures there could be lost of potential for points there from players I may not already have in my team.

Although there’s a bit more to it, it feels like a couple of extra players from Wolves, Burnley or Watford for one game. Or picking my ideal 11 players all playing twice. I know which sounds more fun…

Ultimately there will be countless hours spent thinking about this, and probably for marginal gains. Would we take FPL any other way?

    FPL towers are really slacking these days. GW ended two days ago but they've still not added autopoints

    Top of ML is getting Lund, 2nd is getting Lund and Mané (Vc), I captained Auba and am getting Lascelles.

    Not happy 🙁

    How the hell has Wolves appeal to postpone their match against Olympiacos been rejected?

    This is mental.

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yep. I think it will postponed.

      I know, right. Regular people are being told to not travel if not necessary but we'll fly our football teams all across europe because the show must go on...

        And the money roll in.

  6. Grievez

    Just null and void the whole season and have done with it

    1. pitstop1

      Agreed (Spurs fan)

      But the championship must go ahead as planned

        Null the season, no point playing championship, as no pl teams will be relegated

      As someone you used wc to bring in five dgw'ers, and sold salah, mane, kdb, ayew, and barnes, I agree with your sensible suggestion. Oh, and I brought in berwijn.

      1. Happy Chappy

    Well that's a disaster.

  8. Nomar

    Yay, so I get Traore’s 1 point off my bench for KdB.

    1. DA Minnion

      Same. Lord second .don't get him though.

        Played Lord.

        Lascelles last on my bench, though.

    Albion’s match against Arsenal this Saturday remains scheduled to go ahead as planned, in line with government advice, and following consultation with the Premier League and medical advisors.

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Watch that change.

      1. Hedge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Unlikely. Arsenal player contact with the virus was nearly two weeks ago, the 14 days expires on Friday so it will go ahead unless a case is confirmed in the squad or staff

  10. the Penman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    Bloomin’ Olympiakos...

  11. Rains of Castamere
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    The four BGW 31 fixtures are going to be affected aren't they? You just know it...

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      It will be announced 5 minutes after I click the Free Hit button.

  12. the Penman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    So, just to be clear, Arsenal are self isolating a number of players who were in contact with the (infected) Olympiakos owner 2 weeks ago at their EL match, so their 2 weeks of isolation is up...after tomorrow. So they’re fine for the weekend. Is that right?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Depends if any of those test positive. If they do the domino effect begins.

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        If even one of the Arsenal player test positive the league will definitely be suspended.

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Yep they will be at panic stations.

      2. Hedge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Unlikely to happen. The maximum time to become symptomatic is 12 days with the average being 5. The 14 days is because the virus can hang around a further two days.
        Only chance is that one of the players has it but completely asymptomatic

    2. Penang Sandman
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I think they just found out the Olimpiakos owner tested positive, hence the isolation and cancellation of Mci Ars game.
      Not sure those Arsenal players isolated for how many days now

    3. West Hammered
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      What a f***ing joke ! Surely all West Ham players now have to quarantined as well as they played them on Saturday. This is stupid & if they’re going to start cancelling games like that, they should just cancel the season.

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        This

      2. Luka - Man Like Serbia
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Yep, cancel the season - sorry Liverpool, maybe next time 😀

    Super duper news.. so my chance at clawing back some points after the horror show of monday gone for today.
    Should have stuck with gut and backed salah capt.

    Imagine being so blinkered and tbf absolutely moronic that you actually think this season has been anything but 99% about luck

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Just cancel the fking season

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        No luck then.

      Not the whole season but this gameweek has big ramifications on rank.

        Captain Auba and triple City not playing. Just lol. Planning punished again.

      100% luck this season, it's been ridiculous, ML rival getting Barnes and Lundstram from the bench for Perez and KDB!

      Yeah game over for me. My stratergy has been terminally affected by this so I'm just going to stop worrying about it.

  16. jtreble
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Revised plan: WC30, FH31, TC32 and BB33.

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Or the opposite - use as few as possible and wait for the triple triple everlasting gameweek 38 with 6 postponements for each team rescheduled in it that runs through till August 😀

    2. Happy Chappy

      I revised my plan too, will eat pizza.

      There is no such thing as 'Pep news'.

    Today's news has very much smoothed my week.

    KDB and Perez replaced by Lascelles and Webster for 12 points while my fellow league players have 1 or 2 points incoming.

    Anyone suspecting the season is going to be cut short?

    1. BenjoBD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Hopefully.

    A) KdB starts tonight
    B) No show and Williams off the bench

    1. manu4life99

    2. BenjoBD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      That KDB starts tonight. Unfortunately that won't happen as the game is called off. Lol

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam

      I assume this was a joke

      1. KAPTAIN KANE

        No I didn't realise! Does that mean Williams off the bench??

    I’ve nobody in tonight’s game but I really feel for those who loaded up with dgwers, that is just rotten luck

    1. Rains of Castamere
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Took a hit for Aubameyang, would have captained Salah. Didn't load up tho, plenty will be in worse situations. Just Aubameyang and already had Mahrez.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Have c on auba as well but didn't take a hit to get him . My decision to go maddison over Barnes at 18:59:30 a week last Friday is really what bugs me ...

    2. BenjoBD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Yeah. I've decided to play around with the rest of the season now. Liberating really.

    3. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Why is this game cancelled when all others being played behind closed doors

      1. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Because the issue is the players themselves

      2. TOPCAT1960
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Because Arsenal might catch a different strain of a cold !

      3. Colonel Shoe 肝池
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Cos the arsenal players might have the virus... No point spread ing it

      4. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Cos the Olympiakos owner has the virus

      5. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Because some Arsenal players met the Olympiakos owner on 28 February so government guidelines require them to self isolate for 14 days from then- so until this Friday

    4. Colonel Shoe 肝池
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Yep went full commitment for the dgw in the hope of gaining ground. My non dgw team would be 30pts up on this....

        Fully agreed, this season will have an Asterix next to it

        It was a poor double gw anyway so bit of a waste getting a load of players for it. City have Europe and fa cup as priority now so who knows who will be picked for league games and Arsenal with city as one of the double games had limited potential too. Don't be crying over poor decisions as you are not losing out on many points in either case.

          Wow just wow...... Biggest captain hindsight ever.
          No dgw is poor until players don't perform and games get cancelled, but yeh you KNEW and luck had nowt to do with it. youre a genius mate, if a slightly smug one.

            Noted, seriously? Calm down, its only a game. Luck evens itself out over a season and the cream always rises to the top.

          I'd have to agree - the first rule of FPL has always been "never trust Arsenal", and Auba's record in "nice" home fixtures this season has actually been diabolical (this was foresight not hindsight! https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2020/03/06/double-gameweek-29-scout-picks-includes-arsenal-triple-up/?hc_page=48&hc_sort_by=comment_date#hc_comment_21782499)

          Throw in City's infamous rotation merry-goround, their champions league focus, KDB's flag...

          It really didn't look like a week to balls deep with WC's & FH's etc

      You certainly must be sitting pretty now, no dgwers and 100 points, with no chance of dgwers catching you up tonight

    Could affect certain teams less. Crystal Palace and toon attack have been in isolation all season anyway...

    Stroke of luck for me. Should win my cup game now. Lascelles off the bench and Salah VC.

      Who cares fpl has become like the spl.... Only without Celtic, Rangers and any clubs from Edinburgh.

    Regardless of who's in your team, FH31 is surely now an optimal strategy. Allows FTs this week to target form teams like Chelsea Man U or Leicester, gives best possible chance of getting 11 out in 31 accounting for postponements, and if the season is ended early, we've had an advantage by playing the FH

      If the season ends early, surely FPL leagues are null & void? Can't imagine my cash MLs will pay out if it finishes 5-6 weeks short.

    What do you think will be the average autosub points once the game updates?

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Pretty high.

      Guy at top of my league getting an extra 18pts

    2. Iggy pop
      • 3 Years

      I lost 6k places due to autosubs today!

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah, a couple in my league getting Lunds points. I'm getting 13 from Lascelles, O'Connell and Cantwell so hoping I will either stay roughly where I am or make a small gain in rank.

    4. teneighty

      Higher than my 4 points from 2 autosubs for sure...

      I did A. Williams uncertain of starts.
