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.

    Do you reckon Liverpool will rotate or not?

    1. JBG
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      No reason to, but who knows.

      1. Ings_is_the_king
        2 months, 29 days ago

        You wouldn’t have thought so.

    2. Sterling Archer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      yes, they will still be drunk like last time, but playing drunk they will still win, but only 1 or 2

      1. Ings_is_the_king
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Do you think Robbo will start after last time?

    3. FDMS All Starz
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Salah still might chase the golden boot, dont think there will be many changes as this is their last game

      1. Ings_is_the_king
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Yep. Will Salah haul though, that is the question...

  2. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    What are the best 3 city assests to get on FH? Still think Jesus will play and do well since he needs form going into the Madrid game?

    1. Ruinenlust
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Sterling and Silva. Not sure about KDB vs Jesus

  3. fuzzymike
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    My available defense is TTA, AWB, Boly, Saiss. Is it worth 4 points to replace one with BUR player??

  4. Berbs
    • 10 Years

    Any decent thrillers or horrors on UK Netflix?

    1. potatoace

      White lines is horrific.

  5. Ruinenlust
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    A) Martial and Jesus

    Just out of interest, are we going to get any articles at all for people who are not FHing? Seems like all the Pro Pundits are playing their FH. Where's Andy when you need him

    1. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      The one above. The writer doesn't have FH chip.

  8. LOLarov
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    A or B

    A) Pulisic --> Dilva
    B) Doherty --> Laporte

    1. Tomerick
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      B) pulisic is red hot

      1. LOLarov
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        agree

  9. Abra Dubravka
    • 1 Year

    Too much money on Liverpool defence?

    Pope
    TAA, Robbo, Pieters (Branthwaite)
    Sterling(c), KDB, D.Silva, Salah (Guend)
    Kane, Ings, Greenwood

    1. Bob Vrabkab
      • 8 Years

      It's perfect

      1. Abra Dubravka

    I apologise if this has already been posted, but oh my days!

    Fancy posting this hours before your club did the biggest choke since Greg Norman in the 1996 US Masters....

    I was planning to do Pulisic to Dilva for free, but after Pulisic doing well off the bench last night I’m not so sure?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Facing Norwich at home is still better than Wolves. If you don't have any other concerns, Pulisic to Silva is worth trying.

  13. NATSTER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Just try to understand the motivation for Spurs.

    Will the 6th finisher be qualified to play Europa in next season?

    1. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Yes and 7th place too if Chelsea win the FA cup

    2. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Yes, if they finish 7th, they have to hope Arsenal don't win the final
      So they should be motivated to finish 6th

    3. Andrew
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      6th yes, possibly 7th if Chlesea win FA Cup?

    4. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Thank you. Just know about the 7th place situation too.

  14. TyroneGAA
    • 3 Years

    I’m considering kdb Bruno for Silva and sterling last roll of the dice until next year lol

    1. Predator
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Ok lol

  15. Malkmus
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    A'noon. So here it is... 1FT, 1.9 ITB. Current Tm:

    Pope (Martin)
    TTA - Tarko - Docherty
    KDB - Salah - Bruno - Martial
    Ings - Vardy - Mason

    subs - kiko, guendouzi, Robinson

    ML rival has Kane and Sterling and ahead by 4 points...

    A - Vardy to Kane
    B - Vardy to Kane and Bruno to Dilva (-4)
    C - Vardy to Kane and Salah to Sterling (-4)
    D - Other

    Ta!

  16. Can the flagging Fernandes now be flogged?
    Wheato182
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Amount of people taking Fernandes out after one blank is staggering,especially for hits.

    Yes it was an unusually jaded performance last night but has one final massive game game on Sunday which i can see plenty of goals in, it's only gonna take a usual united peno for it to backfire.

    On a free hit myself and see no reason to get rid.

    1. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      He looked tired for weeks. Also UTD need a draw, they will defend. Unkess he gets another dubious penalty it shouldn't be that much of a worry

      1. Wheato182
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I guess we shall see, Ole doesnt strike me as the kind of manager who will just try and see out a draw from the get go.

      2. That Posh Bloke
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Like they can defend against a team that needs to win, their defence and goal keeper are crap.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      If he had controlled that through-ball from Rash early on it would be a very different narrative, got into several very dangerous positions early on as well, was very attacking

      He does look absolutely wreckeed tired physicaly obviously tbf - but he's well capable of hauling even at 50% capacity

      I can *kind of* understand why some might take a punt on selling, but with DFK's, Corners, Pens and the #10 role I'd consider him a bit like TAA/KDB in that you can sell, and you may get away with it - but it could oh so easily blow up in your face

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Luckily its Rashford turn to take penalty.

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        If game is not won, i don't see that happening

      2. Wheato182
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Do not do this to me!

    4. Maddamotha
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      United has been looking jaded for the last 3 games tho, and they only need a draw against Leicester, so will probably focus on defending and not conceding any goals. I don't see a highscoring game tbh.

      1. SHOOTER MCGINN
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Once Vardy scores there's no choice but to attack. Utd aren't good enough defensively to go for a draw IMO

        1. jamiejoe
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          True

      2. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Leicester are jaded too and my grandma is quicker than Wes Morgan

    5. la boneza
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Yea it's a dilemma.

      I want to add Mahrez but with
      Salah KDB Dilva Martial Bruno in mf im not sure what to do. Have Auba and Greenwood/Nketiah up top..

      it's either Bruno to Mahrez or Doherty to Mendy and bench Tarkowski/Digne...

    6. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Keeping both him and Mason on FH

    7. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I would go with Martial over Bruno right now

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I'm in 2 minds. I've got him and will play him but not as captain again.
        He is knackered, BUT ....

        The game will play to United and his strengths. Leicester have to have a go and try to score. That means United can sit back and hit them on the break. He can play his precision passes to the feet of Martial and Rashford, and there will be plenty free kicks around the box - maybe even a penalty.

        1. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          I agree. Martial and Rashford could do well too. But on a FH I feel it’s overkill to double up on MNU mids. Keeping one is fine.

      2. asquishypotato
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        This is what I’m considering, for me I can get Martial and Robertson over VVD and Bruno, so I’ll be keeping an eye on where this hot topic goes!

    8. AA33
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Regarding the penalty, Rashford is likely to take the next penalty

    9. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      On a free hit I see even less reason to keep. Surely you can find an asset around that price point who is a decent differential in a match which truly has the capacity to deliver a load of goals, rather than the cagey affair Leicester vs United is bound to be.

    10. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Depends on rank. If doing well keep for security. If chasing like me then I'm getting rid, one final week I want to bet on players who aren't universally owned.

    11. Underdog333
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Personally I am losing him for Son this week. I am trying to extend my lead in my ML by playing a differential that IMO has a higher chance of scoring double digits against, a depleted, palace rather than a tired Bruno against a fighting Leicester

    12. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      just a note and there is a big if, if United were to get a pen who´s gonna take it? Bruno took the last one, and they have shared it after coronabreak. And another note, not to play a mind games, but Schmeichel is the goalie. He is not the goalie you want your pen taker against no matter how good you are. And to be fair, he has not looked to get much point elsewhere than from pens.

    13. Biancazzurri
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      United fan here. Fernandes has been 'off' lately, playing deep and looking tired (but that goes for the most United players).

      Leicester need to attack... I assume Solskjaer's plan, knowing the physical condition of his players, is to bet heavily on the counter attacks. Which means it's a big moment for the 'runners' - Greenwood, Martial and Rashford.

      Sure, Bruno may be on penalties and free kicks, but right now he looks the least dangerous out of the attacking four and it's lileky I'll do a > D. Silva.

  17. Tony Martial

    Please help what should I do!
    2.0 ITB and .1 off Foden to Dsilva!.

    Which pair score more:

    B) Mahrez + Robbo

    1. Daniel - Go Granville

      A

        • 7 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Thanks for reply.
        Bringing Sterling and Salah in. Which ONE should I keep?
        A) Pulisic
        B) Martial
        C) Bruno

  20. Fuddled FC
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Would you do

    a) KDB & Jesus > Silva & Kane
    b) KDB & Jimi > Silva & Kane
    c) neither

  21. Isboo
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    McCarthy
    TAA* Doherty* Egan*
    KDB* Martial* Bruno* Salah
    Vardy Greenwood Ings*

    Saka, Lund, Lace

    2 FT and 2.9 ITB

    I'm 5 points ahead of 2nd place, players he also has are starred*, main differences are that he has..
    Rash & Jimi vs Vardy and Greenwood
    Sterling vs Salah
    Pope vs McCarthy

    I was thinking about doing Bruno, Martial > Sterling Dilva?

    I'd lose my united mids that match his, but I'd cover Sterling, have 3 city, and retain my Salah differential

    Save me, thanks all

    1. Isboo
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Worth a -4 to cover somewhere else? 0.1 short of covering Pope

    2. Ian & Zen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      I think you should keep one Man Utd, swap the other for Sterling, and downgrade Doherty for a Burnley defender

  22. The Littlest Robbo
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    KDB v Jesus v Silva could decide ML's assuming most go with Sterling. The price difference between KDB and Silva is probably the vital factor if you can use the money to yourself someone like Kane or Salah

    Whats people thoughts on these 3 players

    1. Ian & Zen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      I've never owned Jesus, and do not intend to start.
      There are much better options, from other teams and Man C
      I have KDB Sterling & D Silva at the mo, but that may change

  23. dshv
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    FH G2G

    Pope

    How’s my team? I have done my moves: Mane and Doherty to Sterling and Robo! Bring on GW38+, I want my first ever top10k finish
    Pope
    TAA, Robertson, Pieters
    Sterling (TC), KDB (VC), Bruno, Pulisic, Antonio
    Jesus, Ings
    (Martinez, Greenwood, C.Taylor, Robinson)
    Is my lineup and bench order correct?

  25. Ajax Hamsterdam

      Carslberg don't do baskets, but if they did...

      Fill your boots & enjoy the points (hopefully)

      You'll even get a bonus cleansheet (well 75% of one anyway)

      Wish I had those 3.

    5. Sailboats

      Not too much. 3 city is “essential”

    6. Ian & Zen

      Got those 3 too.

  27. GOATMEAT
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Don't you think it's very likely to KdB won't start against Norwich in a game that doesn't mean anything?

    He has played full 90 minutes on Saturday against Arsenal and again Tuesday against Watford. Also not his best games.

    Or do you think Pep will play him to give him minutes before CL continues?

    1. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      The way I think.

      If you are on FH and have a chance to replace him for free, do it with the hope that he doesn't show up.
      If you don't have FT, just simply keep him.

        Cheers. I'm on FH. Might get rid of him because plenty of other options too...

    Which option for -4?
    McCarthy
    Doherty, TAA, Azpi
    Salah,Sterling,Martial,Fernandes
    Rashford,Ings,Nketiah

    Patricio,Saka,Taylor,Lascelles. 1 FT 0.0m itb

    A) TAA,Saka >> Pieters,Dilva -4 play 3-5-2
    B) Fernandes,Rashford >> Dilva,Jesus -4.( Would have to play one of Saka or Niketiah )
    C) Taylor,Fernandes >> Mendy,Dilva -4. Would give me an extra bench player who would be fit.

    Any love for Richarlison? Bou going on an all-out attack could concede a bunch on the counter.

    Richarlison over Martial over too risky?

      If Everton were in better form then yes.
      Could work for one week.
