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.

    Would you do Mahrez and Bruno to Sterling and Dilva for a hit? I have KDB also.

    1. JelliedSpark968
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      yes

    2. umerlfc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yes if Bruno ti Sterling directly can not happen

    3. Silent Hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Of course

  2. Wheato182
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Treble Burnley at the back insane in the membrane?

    Allows

    Pope
    TAA - Bardsley - Peiters
    Salah - Bruno - DSilva - De Bruyne
    Greenwood - Auby - Kane

    Alternatively could go for another 4.6 defender instead of Bardsley/Peiters.....

    1. Aubamewho
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I like it.
      Or
      Maybe Branthwaite (BOU)

      1. Wheato182
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Thanks for the reply - can see goals for both sides in the Bournemouth Everton game tbh so gonna stay away.

        1. Aubamewho
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Good point

    2. toerag

      im thinking similar

  3. OptimusBlack
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Which is the best ?
    A - Martin & Lascelles >
    McCarthy & Walker
    B- Martin & Lascelles
    Pope & Pieters or 5 M defender

    What are the reasons for selling Fernandes? Is it purely financial (i.e. you want someone in similar price range or need more money for Sterling, Mahrez, Kane etc.) ?

    1. Wheato182
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Can't see why you'd wanna sell him tbh.

    2. Annie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      City players will likely outscore him, he looks knackered.

      1. Sterling Archer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        get a bit of a longer rest, think he'll be fine

  5. umerlfc

    Which 2?

    A) KDB
    B) Mahrez

        that twitter?

  7. Aubamewho
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    What's the best way to fit in sterling?
    Chasing lead 3 points difference. 1.1 itb, 1 Ft and bench boost available.

    Pope
    VVD Pieters Garcia
    KDB Salah Bruno Martial
    Auba Vardy Greenwood
    (Button, Egan, JackRob, Hayden)

  8. Original Pirate Material
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Who gets more points this GW:

    A. Foden.
    B. Nketiah

    1. Tomerick
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Flip a coin. Foden reeks of a 1 pointer his week though.

    2. fuzzymike
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I got similar issue with Foden & Saka.

  9. The Littlest Robbo
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    I'm in 2 minds what to do in my current situation, going into GW37 I was 41 points behind ML leader but thanks to Stering, Doherty, Greenwood & Anotonio I'm now only 5 points behind. He has already used his FH and my FH team was all set up to take risks with differentials, however its probably best I play a little safer now.

    Which of his players to you I think I should block: (we'll both be captaining Sterling I pretty sure of that)

    A. TAA
    B. KDB
    C. Fernandes
    D. Martial
    E. Pulisic
    F. Ings

    I need to take some risks by not covering some of the players to make up the points and win the ML

    1. Wheato182
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Pretty much all of them could get something, I'd prob prioritise A, B and C though.

  10. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Keep Rashford or Vardy to be replaced by Ings?

    I have Martial and Fernandes as well. Currently leaning Rashford.

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Quite like Vardy for the final fixture actually.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      That's Rashford out btw.

    3. fr3d
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Man Utd have looked horrible last few games. Keep Vardy

    4. Pap Le Cissier
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I’d remove Rashford. To me he’s looking jaded along with Bruno. Also I don’t like his recent numbers, popping off a lot of shots from distance compared to Vardy

  11. reo19uk
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Going into the last GW I am 8 points ahead of my rival in my ML so very close 1!

    My team:
    Pope
    Tarowski, VVD, Azpi
    Fernandes, Martial, KDB, Sterling, Antonio
    Ings, Greenwood

    Dubravka, Jota, Saiss, Taylor

    His team(predicted):
    Patrício
    TAA, Egan, Saiss,
    Salah, Fernandes, Martial, Antonio
    DCL, Rashford, Jiménez

    Martin, Taylor, Femenia, Foden

    Should I do KDB to Salah to cover a possible haul from him?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      No from me.

      Fernandes > David Silva is what I'd do.

      1. reo19uk
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        surely I have to cover him not go for another differential!

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          No. It's too close for cover. You want to pick the best option for the week.

          Getting rid of KdB against Norwich is really bad.

          Like imagine if Salah scores 7. KdB hauls 14 and TAA gets 15. You just lost the tie. If it's this close, you're better served picking the best option available.

          Triple City is the way to go.

  12. Vovhund
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Good to go with this FH?:

    Martinez
    Digne-Bertrand-Tarkowski
    Salah-Sterling-KDB-Dilva
    Kane-Ings-Greenwood

    ??

    1. toerag

  13. Marc Jobling

    De Gea (lei)
    Trent (new) - Saiss (che) - Bardsley (BRI)
    Sterling (NOR) - De Bruyne (NOR) - Martial (lei) - Fernandes (lei)
    Ings (SHU) - Jimenez (che) - Calvert-Lewin (BOU)

    Not sure what to do with 1 FT:
    (a) Ederson for De Gea
    (b) D Silva for Martial
    (c) Jesus for Jimenez
    (d) Other

    Please help with my team, unsure what route to take:

    Henderson, Dubravka
    TAA, Tarkowski, Boly, Taylor, Williams
    Salah, KdB, Bruno, Sarr, Foden
    Jesus, Jimenez, Greenwood

    0.8ITB, 1FT

    A) Jesus + Bruno > Kane + Mahrez/Dilva
    B) Jesus + Boly > Kane + Garcia
    C) Foden + Sarr > Dilva + Saka

  16. umerlfc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Best captaincy option in your opinion?

    A) Salah
    B) Sterling
    C) KDB
    D) Dilva
    E) Kane

    1. JelliedSpark968
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      B,D,E,C,A but it's all very close

    2. InvertedWinger

      BAEDC in that order imo

  17. InvertedWinger

    FH Draft NoTony:

    Pope
    TAA Aurier Pieters (Lamptey, Brandon Williams)

      very nice team

    2. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      greenwood seems light on a FH

      1. InvertedWinger
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        He's pretty good value, away ppg strong compared to more expensive options and while Martial is definitely better, he also costs nearly 3.5m more. I do see your point though and i really wanted Martial but this allows me all the big hitters I wanted.

    3. umerlfc

    Word of warning on Pieters who seems to be in a lot of free hit teams.

    If Taylor is back and Gudmunsson plays, there is no room for him and he may not start.

    1. Ruinenlust

      What about Long and Bardsley?

  27. Ruinenlust

    ?

  28. Daniel S. - Go Havertz !!!
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Currently own Sterling KDB Foden.

    Thoughts on 2 FT:

    A) Bruno and Foden out Dilva and Antonio in

    B) KDB and Jimmy out Dilva and Kane in

    Basicaly is Kane vs KDB

    1. Tomerick
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I’m in the same boat. Losing KDB just feels wrong. Leaning towards A for myself

  29. King Henrik
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    which is better for the final day?

    1. Kane and Dilva (Kane triple captain)
    or
    2. Salah and Jimenez (Salah triple captain)
