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.

    McCarthy (Henderson)
    TAA-Doherty-O'Connell (Lamptey-Taylor)
    Salah-Bruno-KDB-Pulisic-Foden
    Jesus-Rashford (Greenwood)

    2FT 0.3 ITB

    A) Foden, Doherty to DSilva, Pieters
    B) Bruno, Jesus to DSilva, Kane
    C) Bruno, Foden, Doherty to Sterling, Pieters and a 4.3 fodder -4

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      i;m doing A with enough change to hit vardy to kane. I dont think you should remove Jesus

      B is nice

    Thoughts on non-FH team

    Pope
    Trent Doherty Wan-Bissaka
    Salah Sterling(C) Pulisic D.Silva
    Ings Aubameyang Greenwood

    Armstrong Egan Basham

    Currently on -4 DeBruyne/Fernandes out for Sterling(C) Silva... -8 pushing it? Tempted by Wan-B to Walker for a final day pint??

    What is more likely?

    A) Digne attacking return vs Bournemouth
    B) Norwich score vs Man City

      Can you provide other options?

  4. RobinKerr1987
    • 8 Years

    A. Fernandes to Son
    B. Vardy to Kane

    Team is as follows with 1 free trade and 1.9m ITB)

    Ederson
    TAA, Aurier, Tarkowski
    Salah, Fernandes, Martial, Dilva (C), Foden
    Ings, Vardy

    Bench: Greenwood, Doherty, Saiss (Martin)

    Didnt know Lampard is whiner.

    So he know how many decibels celebrating a goal should be when you have already won the league.

    I remember when he won away at Spurs he jumped before Mou and shouted to fans few times.

    1. Zilla

      Derby and Leeds last season

        Dont know what happened but dont whine when someone is doing what you were doing.

        Lost respect,probably a bad loser

        1. Zilla
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Agree

  6. Ohh1454

    Is Antonio really a good choice this week ? Surely villa will be very defensive unless Watford are beating Arsenal which is unlikely

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

      Assuming he is playing upfront and on pens then he is great at the price

      Yes villa are motivated but it’s still villa.

      If WestHam score early then Villa will have to throw people forward leaving gaps

  7. Spin The Wheel
    • 1 Year

    Pick one:

    A) Bruno -> Dilva (have Foden and Mahrez)
    B) Bruno/AWB -> Dilva/Robertson -4 (have TAA and Martial)

    1. Gazza2000

    2FTs, 0.0itb, my TC vs. rival's FH (I lead by 31 points)

    1) Vardy, Bruno > Kane, Dilva (TC Kane)
    2) Vardy, Doherty > Kane, Pieters (TC Kane)
    3) Vardy, Pulisic, KDB > Ings, Dilva, Sterling (-4 - TC Raz)

    Pope (3.9)
    TAA, Doherty, Aurier (Saiss, Holgate)
    Salah, Pulisic, Bruno, KDB (Douglas Luiz)
    Vardy, Jimenez, Greenwood

  9. Rex Lapis

    Play Greenwood or Foden?

    1. Spin The Wheel
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Greenwood

    2. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Greenwood

  10. drughi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Best option of these ?

    A. Tarkowski, Martial and Jesus (stephens first on bench)
    B. TAA, Foden and Kane (lamptey first on bench)

    Pope
    ## Pieters Robertson
    ## Salah Sterling(C) Silva Antonio
    ## Ings

  11. BDA Shadow
    • 7 Years

    Sterling's last 4 scores: 10, 21, 1, 17. Anyone want to guess the one week I had him on FH?

    1. ameisin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I'm guessing the same week as me.

    2. JVALDEZ

      I read this a few hours ago I swear.

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 7 Years

        Probably been a somewhat common occurrence.

    Who to lose for Dilva? Thank you!

    A) Antonio
    B) Pulisic
    C) Neither

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 5 Years

      A

    2. The Reptile
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Neither - I'm thinking of Bruno to Dilva. It was meant to be Pulisic for the exact money but he played too well last night..

    Hi guys, here is my current scenario -

    I currently have Doherty, Bruno and Rashford in my team with 1FT, 0.5m ITB available.

    Which of the following would you suggest -

    A. Doherty => VVD for free

    B. Doherty => to any defender who doesn’t play for Man C or Burnley (as I’m already maxed out) for free

    C. Bruno + Rashford => Antonio + Kane (would also mean that I play Doherty in my starting XI) for a -4 point hit.

    Thanks

    1. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      B-Tarkowski

      1. Vazza
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 2 months ago

        The caveat is that he has to be a non Burnley defender

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Sorry, I blew past that. Then I would do A

  14. Jellyfish

    FH team ... G2g?

    Pope
    TAA Aurier Pieters
    Salah Sterling Dilva Bruno Pulisic

      Bruno to mahrez?

      1. Jellyfish
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I may do that if team news suggests Mahrez may start

  15. dee_top
    • 4 Years

    Choose one from each for FH 38+:
    A) Kane
    B) Auba

    1) KDB
    2) Mahrez

    1. Connor Wickham

  16. wattalowz

    Mad to go without Salah on FH?

    Feel like Kane Auba Sterling KDB are all better options.

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Not a bad idea at all.

    2. Connor Wickham
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Its between Salah and Auba for last big hitter in my team. Favouring Salah atm but no real conviction.

            Salah

    2. Garth Marenghi

  19. Geraaaard
    • 1 Year

    Suggest me a free hit team.
    My current selection for next week is as follow (also have bench boost still to play)

    - Martinez Mcarthy
    - TAA, Bardsley, Pieters, Lamptey,

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      That’s a brave call if you are intending to play no attackers. Could work mind you!

    Hi

    Current gw38 team

    Pope
    TAA, Doherty, Pieters
    Salah (v), KDB (c), Fernandes, Saka
    Ings, Greenwood, Aubameyang

    Martin, Dendoncker, AWB, Jack-Robinson

    FH & TC left (don't ask).

    0.4itb

    What would you do?

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Not sure if you can FH and TC in the same GW..

  22. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Are we really expecting Liverpool to perform well against Newcastle given their grand party last night?

    1. Geraaaard
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Against Newcastle and trying to catch golden boot.

    2. Charan77
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      You can only use one chip.

      So not sure which one.

      If I use the FH I was thinking to do the following:

      AWB, Jack-Robinson to Williams, branthwaite
      Saka to Sterling (c)
      Auba to Rodriguez

      Your thoughts please

      1. Vazza
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Can you list all the players from your FH team so we can analyse it correctly

        1. Charan77
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Here you go

          Pope
          TAA, Doherty, Pieters
          Salah (v), KDB, Fernandes, Sterling (c)
          Ings, Greenwood, Rodriguez

          Martin, Dendoncker, branthwaite, williams

          1. Vazza
            • 1 Year
            1 year, 2 months ago

            It’s a good team. I would remove Doherty as he has a difficult fixture against Chelsea. Otherwise, it all looks ok.

            1. Charan77
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 2 months ago

              Currently top of ml by 13 points.

              All 3 under me have saiss

              1. Vazza
                • 1 Year
                1 year, 2 months ago

                You might as well keep Doherty if you’re sure that all your rivals will play a wolves defender..

    1. Geraaaard
      • 1 Year

      Kdb to sterling

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        This would normally be the best move, but if others have TC Sterling, how is he supposed to catch them, even in theory with good luck?

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      They will compete with each other and TC Sterling. You have to show their teams if you want real help.

    3. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      get Kane and cap him

  25. Georgeyboy33
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Pick one...

    A) Salah to Sterling
    B) Bruno, Wood -> Sterling, Greenwood (-4)
    C) something else entirely!

    Team:
    Pope
    Tark, AWB, Boly
    Salah Mahrez Dilva Martial Bruno
    Jimi Ings

    (Wood, Fernandez, Lascelles)

    Dumped TAA in GW35 after having him the whole season.
    After last nights game, is it madness to go without him for GW38?

    Not keen to buy him back at the inflated price but also can't be burned again....

    A) Pulisic to DSilva
    B) Saiss to Mendy

    A has higher ceiling but B feels like an automatic 4-5 additional points so leaning towards B at the moment. Only other City player is Sterling which is a worry though.
