Top 10k managers set for chip extravaganza in Gameweek 38+

Just under a third of Fantasy Premier League managers inside the top 10k are preparing to use their Free Hit chip on the final day of the season.

With 2.6% of them deploying it for Gameweek 37+, that brings the total usage of that chip at this level to 68.9% with one round left to go.

That means 31.1% are saving the Free Hit for Gameweek 38+, a sizeable number and certainly enough for significant change to take place in the top 10k on the final day of the campaign.

Meanwhile, an additional 2.2% of managers at this level will be lining up with a completely brand new squad on Sunday, considering that’s how many of them are yet to play their second Wildcard.

As well as a large number of top 10k line-ups expected to fluctuate between the final two Gameweeks of the season, there will be a noteworthy number of Triple Captains in play.

2.5% of them used the enhanced armband for Gameweek 37+, bringing the total for the season to 91.7%. Therefore, 830 managers from the top 10k are likely to be heading into the final day of the campaign with their skipper armed with a Triple Captain chip.

What all of those numbers boil down to is that 54.3% of top 10k managers have no exhausted their chip supply for the 2019/20 season.

It means that 45.7% of them will have the ability to deploy one on the final day of the season.

As already mentioned, this is a significant portion of the top 10k managers, which could lead to plenty of rank changes in the upper echelon.

Bringing things back to Gameweek 37+, it is the Manchester United attack that will determine the narrative of this season’s penultimate round of action.

Bruno Fernandes (£9.1m) has amassed the highest level of support ahead of West Ham’s visit to Old Trafford, 35.8% of the top 10k managers handing him the armband.

The Portuguese international has now broken the 100-points mark after just 12 games in a Manchester United shirt, which is probably why the top 10k see him as the more reliable option.

However, those who have backed Anthony Martial (£8.5m) can feel relatively secure going into Gameweek 37+ too. The Frenchman has delivered in every home match since the Premier League restart, averaging 16 points per game in that time. The fact that just over 30% of the top 10k made the same decision to captain him, they are somewhat protected in that respect too.

Fernandes and Martial are the only two players to boast more than 100% effective ownership at this level for Gameweek 37+, on 131.9% and 100.8% respectively.

Despite proving unfortunate to blank in his last two outings, Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) has only convinced 7.6% of the top 10k to back him for the captaincy.

However, those who felt confident enough to do so will probably enjoy how few managers handed Salah the armband. Considering how poor Chelsea’s defence has looked on the eye recently, there does appear to be an opportunity for the Egyptian’s backers to make up real ground if he delivers the big haul he has been promising in recent weeks.

Martial’s increasing popularity in the top 10k can be spotted by his showing in the Free Hit squads at this level.

The Frenchman was chosen by 95.1% of such managers, more than Fernandes (91.3%) and more than any other player in any other position.

The Free Hitters were big fans of Manchester United, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m) and Marcus Rashford (£8.9m) both making it into this matrix of most popular assets chosen on them.

They were clearly put off by Manchester City’s awkward FA Cup schedule though. Despite a favourable trip to Watford, Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) is the only Citizen to be given serious consideration by the top 10k Free Hitters this week.

Gabriel Jesus (£9.8m) has suffered a similar fate in the overall ownership at this level.

He was the third-most-popular forward in the top 10k for Gameweek 36+ but has dropped out after the latest deadline.

Replacing him in the template is Raúl Jiménez (£8.1m). The Wolves forward netted against Burnley and faces a Crystal Palace defence that has conceded 15 goals since the Premier League returned.

Outside of that switch, there has not been a tremendous amount of fluctuation in the template between the two most recent Gameweeks, perhaps suggesting that some top 10k managers are holding a free transfer ahead of the final round of the season.

In midfield, Christian Pulisic (£7.4m) has dropped from 50.5% to 32.9% ownership at this level, leapfrogged by Salah, although the Egyptian only rose from 43.12% ownership to 43.2%.

The only other relatively major change is in defence, where Serge Aurier (£5.1m) has replaced Wan-Bissaka in the top-five, the right-back perhaps suffering as managers try to realign how they are tripled-up on Manchester United assets.

    free hit team gtg? protecting a 30 pt lead haha—- could do Mane Cresswell > Salah 4.2 bencher (Morgan/Lamptey) yay or nay?

    Pope (Button)
    Digne TAA Bellerin (Cresswell NicoWilliams)
    Sterling Dilva Mane Antonio (Guendouzi)
    Ings Auga Greenwood

    1. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I am in the same boat. Differences I have are Jesus instead of ings, salah instead of mane, tierney not bellerin, Burnley defence not Everton plus Bruno not giendozi

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      That’s a lot on defence

      TAA and Digne have hardly shone. Everton look horrid frankly and TAA has returned nothing.

      Suspect you could reach Mahrez pretty much without them

      1. yanky
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        could but upgrade who in mid? if douzi then itll have to be 2 strikers

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Greenwood would be fall guy.

          Have him in my non Fh team as first bench - this week too playing Dilva.

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

    Is a 25-30 point difference doable in the last gw? I have a FH left , the other guy does not

    1. Zilla
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Yes, needs a big scoring differential(s) though.

    2. WE GO FOR IT
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      It is. You gotta get 3-4 good differentials and captain one of them.

    3. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      It most certainly is. Carefully select the important players that he won't be able to get in and hope for the best.

    4. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      You can easily catch him you just need one of your guys to score big , think of sterling and Antonio the last couple of weeks even pieters this week !!!

    5. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Definitely

      Depends on C and differentials.

      I’m 20 odd points back in ML and have only 4 players in common and TC to go.

    6. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      He will hopefully take a hit or two which reduces the gap to around 20pts. Better captain and couple of differentials should help.

      So yeah, it's tough but still possible.

    7. Bring back Rafa
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I'm in nearly identical position. I'm thinking is it wise you pick 3 defenders/GK from the same team? im thinking Burnley.
      Their won't be many clean sheets on the last day so banking on 1 team (while chasing) could pay off. Another option would be get 3 players that might get you an attacking return (TAA, Ritchie etc)

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

        Good point.. I think triple Bur defence might just be on the cards

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

      Cheers All, there is hope after all ..just need to nail the differentials and captain right

  3. WE GO FOR IT
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Vardy, Foden, Pulisic to Kane, Dilva (TC?), Armstrong/Soucek for a -4?

    Will bench Armstrong/Soucek or Greenwood

    1. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      If you are trailing a ml yes if not I wouldn't

      1. LegendMoon
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Soucek is a nice shout though

      2. WE GO FOR IT
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I was trailing by 8 points at the start of GW 37. His KdB(c) vs my Bruno(c) could decide where we are before GW38.

  4. b91jh

        Thanks, ye Kane money could upgrade Suocek to Dsilva and upgrade def

    2. maratus
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Apart of Souceck, it looks good. I would never pick Souceck with FH.

      1. JT11fc
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Ye hes just there for the ride

    4. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I'd get Son instead of Kane even if he was expensive than Kane

  7. kennethrhcp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    FH, chasing MLs, pick 2

    A: Richalison (BOU)
    B: Martial (lei)
    C: Antonio (AVL)

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Rich is a really nice pick - I'd definitely have him. Antonio if Villa are already down.

  8. ritzyd
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3 months, 7 days ago

    Anyone else thinking of ditching their Utd assets on FH for 38?

    Assuming Utd and Leics both win this week and Chelsea lose to Pool then Leics/Utd would only need to draw for them both to get champs league . . . . .could see a dour 0-0 being played out. I could, for example, move rashford and fernandes for Dilva and Auba which seems quite attractive.

    Even of utd/leics need to win it could be a cagey affair.

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      im torn, 1st draft i kept bruno & now im trying to fit martial in

    2. Bring back Rafa
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      But if Chelsea beat Wolves wouldnt they knock 1of them out?

      1. Lucky Z
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        No goal difference is poor for CHE

      2. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        All would be on 66, Chelsea worst GD

    3. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Good point, let's wait. I can see Chelsea beating Liverpool this GW

    4. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I got the 3 big attackers this week but may lose at least 1 this GW.

    5. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      There is absoluetly no chance of the two teams playing out a dour "truce, no endeavour" 0-0 draw. United will want to finish 3rd if at all possible. For my own side, I think they'd be happy with 4th, but I think that they will need a result against Utd to get it.

      1. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Wouldn't be the first time teams have managed to find a mutually convenient result.

        1. Team Cruel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Doesn’t have to be 0-0, could also be 2-2 or 3-3.

          Anyway the odds of those three results happening are 9. Spurs could get a result today and Pool are on the beach.

    6. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I'm definitely Keeping Tony !
      Leicester Play high line & I'm sure he will get ample space to run in behind

    7. french holiday
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I wouldnt lose Bruno or Martial. Form > Fixtures.

  9. Bring back Rafa
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Is Nketiah a cheap option again? I'm thinking as a bench option in a FH side

    1. WE GO FOR IT
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      He's a decent 8th attacker, But if you have the money, I'd pick Greenwood.

  10. andriyballack
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    FH team. Leading my mini-league, but just about. Suggestions please!

    Martinez/3.9
    Van Dijk/Pieters/Diop/(Bardsley/Bednarek)
    Salah/Sterling/KdB/David Silva/Bruno
    Kane/Wood/(Nketiah)

    0 in the bank.

    1. Baganuva Hatty
      • 1 Year

      Nice team! Who's will your captain be. Team envy

      1. andriyballack
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks! Captain will depend on City's 37. Will captain Sterling if he doesn't play..

  11. BNMC
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Best defender for the last game up to 5.5? Tierney?

    1. yanky
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      tierney/bellerin yeah but can make a case for tarkowski or mendy/gomez IF they start

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Who's more offensive between Teirney & Bllerine ?

      1. yanky
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        very similar players, similiar price and both injury prone haha, id give a slight slight edge to tierney, he did get an assist today in FA cup as well

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Thanks mate
          I'd probably get him if i sell Taa.

  12. yanky
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    a)
    Pope*
    Digne TAA* Bellerin*
    Dilva Salah Antonio Sterling*
    Auba Ings* Greenwood*

    b)
    Martinez*
    Digne Pieters* Bertrand*
    Dilva Salah Antonio KDB* Mahrez*

  13. Amey
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Guys what would you prefer

    Salah
    or
    Taa & Robbo

    In FH team. Salah is so expensive so i can only afford one of them !

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Salah

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks mate 🙂

    2. liverpool01
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I would go for Salah

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Aye
        Thanks mate

    3. WE GO FOR IT
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Salah. They don't look that solid defensively. Could concede 1 easily. Salah, on the other hand, can easily get a hattrick.

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Yes. That is what I'm thinking too atb. He's looking goal hungry !

  14. Hitmonlee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 7 days ago

    My last transfer of the season..

    Pulisic >

    A) Son
    B) Mahrez/Dilva (City triple up)

    1. WE GO FOR IT
      • 4 Years

      Dilva

    2. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Tough one. I think I’d go Son personally.

  15. liverpool01
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Auba or Jesus for last 2 games guys?

    Person I would bring in would be captain both games.

    1. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x

      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

    2. WE GO FOR IT
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Auba is a better captain choice

    3. BNMC
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Did you miss the 37 deadline?

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years

    4. yanky
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years

      Last game, you mean. You've missed the boat on GW37+...

      2 games?

    Thoughts on my current Free Hit draft?

    Martinez
    TAA Pieters Bardsley
    Salah Fernandes KDB Martial
    Jesus Auba Ings

    Martin; Tananga Thomas Guendouzi

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Wasting one city spot is a crime IMHO

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        What would you do though? I have played around with Sterling in there instead of Salah. Also looked at Greenwood over Ings and Sterling instead of Martial, but I keep returning to the team above. I guess Ederson would be an option but would probably mean losing TAA...

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I'd get Garcia in at least if not anything else

          1. Francescoli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Is he locked in to that team?

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              RCB is stones i guess who's not fit i guess ?

              GW 37 lineups will give us some clues

    2. Bring back Rafa
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Is Tanganga LB or RB? Will he replace Aurier?

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I think he will replace Aurier if he misses

    3. french holiday
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Sterling over Jesus imo. There are plenty of cheap budget forwards eho can do well like Greenwood, Nkeitah, Wood, etc.

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Yeah that’s not a bad shout...

        1. french holiday
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Just feels like KDB is playing a more defensive role with Dilva in the team as seen last night as he was top for tackles with 5.

      2. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Although Greenwood’s underlying stats has him over performing

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          He'll always do that. Hell of a finisher !

  17. Skloppy Kops
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Which City assets to start Gw38?
    Already hv Dilva & Jesus. Need one of Mahrez, RAZ or KdB.

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Raz for me

    2. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Going by Pep's comments, he will want his CL team to get game-time, so best team starts. Think Raz and KDB start.

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Did he say that after match ?
        Wow.
        I might get Mahrez in then for Dilva

          But Dilva will start.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 7 days ago

            You think Dilva gets CL?

            I thought KdB Dilva didn't start those ones together and Rodri slotted in

            1. french holiday
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              I think vs Real Pep will play Dilva Kdb and Fernandinho in midfield

            2. TorresMagic™ - 48n69x
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Not sure, best team played yesterday.

          2. Amey
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            In that case I'd like to keep Dilva 😀

        2. ClassiX
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          With second place in the Premier League secured, City have to focus on the resumption of their Champions League challenge in August, when they defend a 2-1 first leg lead against Real Madrid in the last 16.

          "Now we have two weeks," Guardiola said. "We wanted to play the FA Cup final, one week before the Madrid game, to be in rhythm, but we missed this chance."

            Cheers mate

      Wait to see who starts gw 37

    4. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Sterling

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

      The front 6 will probably be-

      Rodri KDB Dilva
      Mahrez Jesus Raz

      1. french holiday
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Jesus hqd a schoking game last night, wouldnt be surprised if Pep drops him altogether and experiments with Sterling striker.

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Lol, for how long are people going to claim this. Its been said all season long and its not happening

    6. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I would expect full strength. Plenty of rest and CL coming up

  18. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Start one for the final GW?

    A) Alonso (WOL)
    B) Egan (sou)
    C) Aurier (cry)

    1. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      C

    2. The Knights Template

      A

  19. Shah G
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Please RMFHT..

    Pope
    TAA, Tierny, Digne
    Sterling, Dilva, Son, Antonio
    Kane, Auba, Wood

    3.9, Soucek, Cresswell, 3.9.. TY..

    1. yanky
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      seems solid but just in case taa doesnt feature for some reason, you might want to find a way for williams (4.0) since your bench is weak sauce

      1. Shah G
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Williams?..

        1. yanky
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Neco Williams 4.0 RB for pool, trents backup

          1. Shah G
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Oh Ok, thanx..

    2. Aftermath
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I wouldn't trust Everton on anything, get Laporte or Walker instead

      1. Shah G
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I was interested in Walker but his mins are all over the place since restart.. Laporte can be done but only way he is getting BP if he scores/assists.. Digne, Tierney ans Wood my only real risks.. Dont you think for final GW that many risks are fine.. Digne have very high ceiling granted lower chance..

    3. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Not keen on Digne, but wait to see if Bournemouth are already down by that point. If Bournemouth need to win, they probably will as Everton have been off it since the restart.

      1. Shah G
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        If Bou need to win then no way I am keeping Digne.. Bou are good enough to score when they really want to usually they don't..

        1. Shah G
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I'll fit Richarlison then somehow..

  20. liverpool01
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Ederson
    Doherty, Taa, Beardsley, Pieters
    Bruno, Kdb, Mahrez, Antonio
    (C)Auba, Ings

    McCarthy, Pulisic, Greenwood, Saiss

    Is my lineup okay?

    1. Shah G
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I would play Greenwood over one of Bur defenders..

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I could play Greenwood and bench Doherty, I reckon Burnley will keep a clean sheet.

        1. Shah G
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Eggs and all that.. Doherty have a good chance of atacking return vs Che..

          1. liverpool01
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Tough on who to bench lol

            1. Shah G
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Bur defender is likely to get you just 6 very likely indeed.. But Doherty and Greenwood can get you 10+ but less likely.. Your managing style will dictate your final decision..

              1. liverpool01
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                Yeh thanks man

    2. liverpool01
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Beardsley I meant silly auto correct...

      1. SHOOTER MCGINN
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Peter Beardsley?

        1. liverpool01
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Bardsley lmao

    3. french holiday
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Kdb to Sterling if you have the cash and a spare transfer.

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Thanks no spare transfers and enough money, just transferred Auba in.

    4. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      No. Pulisic must start.

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Bench Pieters and Doherty, start Greenwood and Pulisic?

        1. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Surely you can't play with 2 defenders, just Pulisic for Doherty

  21. SHOOTER MCGINN
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Thoughts on this FH team?

    Pope (McCarthy)
    TAA Bardsley Taylor (Doherty Mendy)
    Sterling KDB Fernandes Martial (Saka)
    Vardy Ings Greenwood

    P.s. it's not a free hit, just my bench boost. Just wanted to join in with the free hit fun.

    1 transfer and 1.9ITB. Any ideas? Might punt on Josh King for Greenwood if Bournemouth need a result and could stay up.

  22. kempc23
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Pope
    TAA Wan-B Boly
    Sterling Bruno Martial Pulisic
    Jesus Ings Wood

    £3.2m, 1FT

    Currently at 38k so no chance of 10k unfortunately. I want to try and finish as high as possible though so am open to a bit of risk.

    Ings and Martial to Auba and Dilva for -4 and cap one of them?

  23. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Arsenal are going to suffer the dip that all mid table sides who make the Cup final go through 😉

    Time to load up on Watford

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Good call, will do.

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      LOL

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Bro please answer my question above

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        If you think Liverpool keep a cs then it could be defence - assuming you're not C on Mo

        Don't see many cs in final week - doubt the Burnley one. if you get 2 cs then you're ahead of most. That leaves your Mo substitute.

        Happy to have Mo and think newcastle will threaten a lot

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I am not sure about CS tbh.
          Mo on the other hand will be a rank killer !

  24. Hulk Smash
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Can we all agree it's worth -4 to get 2 additional City players in next week? Got KDB already and thinking:

    A - Vardy, Pulisic > Jesus, D. Silva
    B - Salah, Pulisic > Sterling, D. Silva

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Happy for you to do this.

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

      A probably, Salah is one of the first names in my FH draft and wont get rid

      1. Hulk Smash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Not concerned about his away form when Mane plays? I believe the only away haul he's had since restart was the Brighton game when Mane was benched.

  25. Eat my goal!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Hard to see the wood through the trees atm

    Think west ham vs villa could be a great game for Antonio

    Leicester vs Utd will be low scoring imo as will Chelsea vs wolves

    Arsenal and spurs games could be interesting

    Which games are you targeting for last GW?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      All will be high scoring

    2. BNMC
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Planning a double up on Arsenal players vs Watford

    3. Shah G
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Ars, City, Wham, Bur, Spurs..

    4. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      It's a brave man who gets rid of United's attacking assets. TBH I don't envy people using FH as sometimes it tempts you to make more changes than you need to and I think the template players will mostly do well in 38.

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Agree although my FH was massive for me

        I’m likely to make 2 transfers at -4 for last gw

        Antonio top of the list currently

      2. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Agree with this. I have hardly made any changes to my front 7 but feel like going for uber differentials.

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          It's avoiding hits & getting defense correct which will decide the score IMO.

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Yep

            Defence could be critical - see my comment above. There is something to be said for Robbo TAA. Could get 20 points from them combined. That's huge if Brighton pop the Burnley cs - quite likely I think

      3. Shah G
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Sour grapes and all that.. 😀

      4. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        very good point

    5. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Arsenal Watford
      Tony Martial vs Leicester defense
      Obviously City
      Salah vs Newcastle
      Son vs Palace

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Tough ask to get auba son salah and city

        1. Hulk Smash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Defence would have to be like Pieters, Long, Lamptey and pray for a 0-0 in the Brighton Burnley game lol.

  26. Rolls-Royce
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Feels like GW1 all over again with the free hit chip.

    1. Shah G
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Nothing like GW1.. only 1 GW to plan for, no pre-season, no new signings, no promoted clubs, etc....

  27. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Here's a thought

    Wrong results this week could bar Arsenal from a Europa place from league position. That just leaves the cup. Is Arteta going to risk much in the dead rubber? The final is just round the corner.

    Yes there's a lot to be said for maintaining rhythm of course but I don't see Arsenal going for the kill. Keep the players fresh.

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Watford could still have it all to play for too

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Golden boot for Auba he surely wants it

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Last home game.
      Auba might be playing his last home game too 😮

  28. Do I Not Like Orange
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Mahrez or Dilva as 3rd City attacker for 38? Already have KDB & Foden.

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I think most are going to wait until final few minutes of the deadline to finale their 3 City players depending upon the leaked team news if any.

    2. Shah G
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      This GW is the last time you will ever own legend that is Dilva.. Everyone should get him in even for a hit..

  29. FPL Pillars
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Just did this FH on the fly, how is it

    Martinez
    Aurier Pieters Bardsley
    Sterling KDB Dilva Antonio Salah
    Auba Kane

    Connolly Long Tanganga
    Would be 0.0itb

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Really like it!

    2. Baganuva Hatty
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Love it, this could be massive. GL buddy. Fancy a few hauls in there but who will you (c)?

      1. FPL Pillars
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Sterling perhaps

    3. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Good team but very high risk going without highly own United attack.

      1. FPL Pillars
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Maybe one of them will survive we will see but see that games
        got tight with what’s at stake

    4. Roysgotnoboys
      • 5 Years
