The player and team stats that could shape your Free Hit squad for Gameweek 38+

Holly from Fantasy Football Community looks at some of the key numbers from our Members Area over the last four Gameweeks.


The final Gameweek of the season is here and I’m taking a look at the underlying statistics from the last four Gameweeks, in a bid to sort out those transfer and Free Hit dilemmas going into Gameweek 38.

Note that some players will have seen more minutes than others over this period.


Holly, the founder of FPL Community, has two top 10k finishes in five FPL seasons, is a regular guest on the FPL Show and recent addition to the Scoutcast line-up.

    What’s the better option?

    A) Bruno to Dilva for free

    Bring in mahrez for foden (jimmy benched)? Or Kane for jimmy (foden benched)?

    Also, I will be taking a hit for a punt from willian to Moura.

    The Foden case really makes me scratch my hand

    in one hand, I can sim him get a mega haul if he starts. On the other, it looks already written that Dilva will be subbed off and gets a round of applause from his team mates and make way for Foden as a symbol.

    Really don't know what to do with Phil. Are you guys keeping?

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      i'm ditching to david silva as part of a hit, really need to attack that norwich fixture

  9. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    do i need talking out of this -8 or could it work?

    Foden, Vardy, Doherty to Diliva, Pieters and Kane

    No FH so trying to keep pace

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      IF Foden doesn’t start then I’d do it even though I hate a -8 normally

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        are we expecting a leak?

        1. TheDragon
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          I think so

  10. Jack Burton

    Pope
    Taa Robbo Peiters
    Son Martial Dilva Mahrez Raz©
    Ings Auba

    Mahrez owes points to me ... 😛

  12. Kane Lane
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    speak to me is KDB Fernandez to Sterling DSilva worth minus 4

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      It’s hard to know - I don’t think so but it has the potential to be a huge point swing one way or the other

      1. Kane Lane
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        cheers

    On FH...which United mid is the better pick...

    Bruno or Martial?

    (Currently own Bruno with a selling value of 8.8)

    1. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Martial

    2. TheDragon

      #teamBruno

    3. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      On current form martial

  14. Bossworld
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    I know the answer is 'no', but could Robertson cover Salah's points?

    1. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      No

    2. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yes

    3. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Quite possibly do better as well

      1. Bossworld
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I'm scared

  15. Rinseboy
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    This -8 is crazy to block rival isn't it? Am 20 ahead.

    Vardy and Jesus to Kane and Ings?

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yep, don’t do that (unless Jesus is benched)

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Not cool - would only be 12 points in it after and a different captain could easily overturn it

    3. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      hitting out jesus is madness

    4. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      thanks all. Jesus benching would hurt thats for sure!

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        still come on and brace in 20mins

  16. Sondre van Bank
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Salah and Vardy --> Kane and Sterling(C) -4
    yay or nay?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      yes

  17. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Hey all. Last one! 1FT 1.1m ITB and a plethora of things I could do... what looks best? Assuming some hits are needed given lots of players struggling but if not lemme know

    Pope (3.9)
    TAA Aurier Pieters (Doherty 3.9)
    Mane KDB Bruno Mahrez (Guendouzi)
    Vardy Rashford Greenwood

    A) Bruno Rashford to DSilva Kane (-4)
    B) Mahrez Mane to Sterling DSilva (-4)
    C) A+B for -8 (losing Mahrez Mane Rashford for Sterling DSilva Kane)
    D) Something else?

    Many thanks in advance!

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A

    2. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Honestly those choices are so difficult it’s probably why a lack of replies

      Not B as I think Mahrez to DSilva is too sideways (unless we get team news). Mane could go huge vs Newcastle too

      I’d do A or potentially just the the Bruno -> DSilva part for no hit

    3. Captain Warlock
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Wouldn’t get rid of Mané or Mahrez maybe Rash or Vardy to Jesus if your after more City

    4. Captain Warlock
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Can you afford Vardy to Kane no hit

    5. afsr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      definitely A out of these

  18. Captain Warlock
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Play 2 ? Any help appreciated
    A) Greenwood v LEI (A)
    B) Ings v SHU (H)
    C) Jiménez v CHE (A)
    Currently on A+B

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      AB

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      probably AB yeah. Help above?

      Also for me, C is tight on money, can't afford after today if both sterling and silva rise tn

    3. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      You know Kepa plays in goal for Chelsea and for every 2 shots on target this season he lets 1 in.

      I’d be playing Ings & Jimenez

      1. Captain Warlock
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Cheers folks

  19. Pep's Money Laundry
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    DSilva has 30 points in the last 2 home games, this means he seals the 2nd man city slot alongside Sterling in my team.

    It's between KDB and Jesus for the final city player, its not going to be a easy decision as there are so many other options in midfield if you go with Jesus

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      with imo the lack of strikers on a FH, i think Jesus edges it

  20. afsr
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    How do i improve this team? No easy way of getting Kane or Auba..

    Pope
    TAA, Aspi, Taylor
    Sterling, Salah, Bruno, Martial, Dilva
    Greenwood, Jesus

    Mccarthy, Gayle, Doherty, Holgate,
    1FT, 0.1ITB

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      would maybe swap out azpi for someone but rly don't know who. only thing i can see. youre in a good spot.

      help above?

  21. Hitmonlee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    I’m most tempted to do A but Kevin has been so good all year?

    A) KDB > Sterling (c)
    B) Saiss > Robbo/Laporte (KDB c)

    Current team:
    ———————Pope—————————
    —-TAA———-Saiss———Tarkowski——
    —Salah—KDB—Bruno—Martial—Pulisic—
    ————Greenwood—-Jesus————-

    Thanks

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      with david silva looking set to start, KDB output when he plays has declined, I would do A or even KDB and Bruno to David Silva and Sterling for a hit

      1. Hitmonlee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Bruno has looked tired but he’s still the man and capable of some magic.
        Not looking at hits I don’t think.

  22. Champ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    In the interest of balance, as I have often complained about the premier League organisation in the past, but credit to them for getting the season over the line relatively drama free. The logistics must have been a nightmare for something that came to them with no playbook so kudos to the heads that kept it going and all of us entertained to some degree!!

    1. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      They’ve done amazing especially when you look at how bad they’re organising the NBA in Florida

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I mean look at Florida as a whole, the two aren't really comparable.

  23. yer old da

    A. Bardsley, Branthwaite, Bruno and Ings

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years

      Cancelo played on the left last time.

    2. Greek Freak
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Two assists all year and has similar xG and xA stats as Diego Rico. So I'd say probably not! 😀
