Pro Pundits - Holly

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.

      Last Man Standing Final Standings

      https://prnt.sc/tn8xgp

      https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/2988991/history

      Eduardo Cruz - https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/profiles/eduardo-cruz/ became the 7th winner of Last Man Standing after playing his bench boost. The chip gained him the final winning margin of 29 (Martínez 2, Greenwood 9, Pieters 12, K.Long 6). He could have tied and still won on overall rank.

      Congratulations to the other 3 finalists, SweetBoi, Old School and Blasting Wand for great runs in the competition.

      Eduardo wins FFS membership for a season which Geoff/FFS offered as a prize. He beat 5107 others and sits at 8,289th overall.

      A special thanks goes to Ragabolly for his help during the season removing teams and providing a live LMS leaderboard - https://www.livefpl.net/LMS so everyone could see the top 20 and the elimination zone.

      Thank you to all who entered and participated in LMS this season.

      Hope to see you for the 8th installment next season, all things being equal.

      Bottomed:

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

      Richarlison over Martial over too risky?

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

        I'd still go with Martial...........only just

      2. Abra Dubravka
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Yeah, tooooo risky

        • 10 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        At present I have Rich and Martial. Bou gotta go for it. We know there are likely to be more goals in week 38 so a player in a different game is another raffle ticket.

            1. Trentino
                2 months, 29 days ago

                It would free up some valuable cash and going for Sterling and Dilva anyway.

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

            A) Martial and Jesus

            Bruno & Connolly
            To
            Antonio & Ings for -4?

            Leaving me a bench boost frontline of:

            Salah | Sterling | KdB | Martial | Antonio
            Kane | Ings | Greenwood

            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..

              You don't really have to be a Wolves fan to think they'll do well against Chelsea 😉

                This. Also the players who will likely do well are the players that always do well: Jimi, Traore, Doherty. Maybe even Podence.

                  Cheers mate!

                  In theory Traore sounds perfect, but then I looked at his returns and his last 6 are 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 2. Any idea why he's not getting the points?

                True, I just thought they would have more insight, and I know we have some here.

                Which ones do you think will do the best? Ideally I'm looking for a 6.8 or less mid/fwd as a sort of enabler on FH. Keeping Doherty is also an option.

                  The usual suspects as said above could do well. Jimenez always seems to do well vs. the top sides - 2 of his 3 double-digit scores have been vs. City.

            Is Greenwood sufficient United cover for GW38 on FH?

              Yes. No Bruno is a risk but he's looking not so good lately.

            I'm 40 points ahead in my minileague and 31 points off the top 100k. My chasing rival will surely captain Sterling. I will triple captain him. Is it safe to take a -8 to get Salah & Kane in the hope of breaking into the top 100k?

            1. Major League Shocker
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 29 days ago

              Yes, I don't think you can lose that lead if you're TC'ing the same player that your rival captains.

            Manage to sour what turned out to be a good GW with awful decision making. Did Giroud > Rashford (c) who was my lowest scoring player and only one of two who blanked. I've also now only got 1ft and have blocked myself from getting Kane/Auba/Salah/Son/Vardy basically anyone desirable without taking a hit. Contemplating Azpi > Aurier as my final transfer. Exciting stuff.

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

              Ha. I'm in a similar situation. I capt Rashford, but still managed to put up 72 pts. That transfer is lack luster. What does the rest of your team look like?

              1. Forza Papac

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 29 days ago

                Pope (McCarthy)
                TAA, Azpi, Digne, (Boly, Fernandez)
                Sterling(c), KDB, Bruno, D.Silva, Pulisic
                Ings, Greenwood, (Rashford)

                0.4 itb. Would like to get sell one of the United boys ideally. Maybe Bruno > Antonio or Rash > Deeney if I'm feeling particularly punty. Not massively into either of those moves if i'm being honest

                  I agree. How about Pulisic to Antonio? WOL have only conceded four goals since GW31.

              I had a great week 91 (-4) but also made 2 horrendous transfers on tilt from a bad result in the last 2 gameweeks

              Foden (8) & Pulisic (9) -> Silva (0) & McNeil (3)

              Got to cut that kind of move out next year

          23. Strchld
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Have I nailed my FH team?

            Martinez
            TAA - Pieters - Long
            Salah - KdB - Sterling - Dilva - Son
            Greenwood - Kane

            Is Son and Kane too much? Also KdB over Mahrez?

          24. monarthur
              2 months, 29 days ago

              Working on my FH team...

              Martinez + TAA or Pope + Robertson?

              Pulisic + Ings or Richarlison + Wood?

              Apart from those I have Pieters, Brantwaithe, DSilva, Mahrez, Sterling, Salah and Kane more or less locked in.
