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.

    Any feedback on this team would be much appreciated.

    Pope
    TAA / Saiss / Kiko
    Sterling (C) / KDB / Bruno / Martial / Pulisic
    Jimenez / Ings

    Greenwood / Lascelles* / Holgate*

    I have 2.3 ITB and two free transfers. I was intending on doing Bruno/Martial to D. Silva and Jimenez to Kane/Auba.

    Obviously my lineup in defence is looking rotten this week. Do you think its worth swapping one of my injured defenders for a -4? I would have up to 5.1 to spend. I'm thinking I might just stick.

    Thanks for your advice.

    1. mohitischamp
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Bruno - Dilva
      Lascelles - Kane

  2. BinManJack

    3 months, 2 days ago

    which of the below lads?

    a) Kane and Grealish
    b) Jimenez and Bruno

    1. toerag
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      b

  3. Arron Wan Bissaka Nil
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Current team:
    De Gea (Button)
    Doherty, Digne, Tarkowski (Holgate, Lascelles)
    Sterling, KDB, Bruno, Martial (Luiz)
    Jimenez, Ings, DCL

    Options
    1. Ederson for De Gea
    2. Auba/Garcia for Jimenez/Doherty (4pt hit)
    3. Wood for DCL
    4. Foden for Luiz (bench DCL)

    1. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      ITB?

      1. Arron Wan Bissaka Nil
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        1.5m

        1. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Luiz DCL => D.Silva Connoly -4?

  4. Lucky Z
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Kane and Spurs' motivation for last GW is 6th place, right? Thoughts Kane vs Auba

    1. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I'd have Kane. Just saw Arteta's comments about respecting the competition and fielding a relatively strong side vs. Watford. Their head's not in it. That being said Auba is a solid pick and I'd have him if money allowed. But I'd choose Kane first

    2. Sailboats
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Kane

  5. Prison Mike
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Best move?

    A) Salah -> Sterling (c)

    B) Bruno/Martial -> David Silva (c)

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      A has the biggest downside and upside, I'd be tempted

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      B

  6. Berbs
    • 10 Years

    I'd like to express my love for Naby Keita

    Have a great day

  7. wulfranian
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    I am really thinking to get Traore.Party vs Alonso.

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

      I was thinking of that too. Just feels weird getting someone whose last 6 scores are 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 2. Why hasn't he been getting in the goals recently?

      1. wulfranian
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        He is not playing to score and his shot needs improvement.Mainly assists Jimenez.

  8. fish&chips

    Pope,
    TAA, VVD, Doherty
    Sterling, Silva, Bruno, Martial
    Jesus, Jimmy, Greenwood

    Martin, McNeil, Taylor, Holgate

    0.6 ITB, 1FT

    A) Jesus & Doherty -> Kane & Walker (-4)
    B) Jesus & McNeil -> Ings & Mahrez
    C) Doherty -> Robbo
    D) something else

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      A is most exciting

  9. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Bottomed

    Tweaked options from earlier today. On FH:

    A) TAA, Laporte, Antonio, Pulisic,(Greenwood)
    B) Robbo, Laporte, Martial, Pulisic (Nketiah)
    C) TAA, Aurier, Mahrez, Pulisic, (Nketiah)
    D) TAA, Aurier, KDB, (Trézéguet), Greenwood

    Pope
    XXXX, XXXX, Pieters
    Salah, Sterling, Dilva, XXXX, XXXX
    Kane, Ings, XXXX
    (Martin) (, Williams, Simpson)

    Currently on A bit they all have their merits!

        You trust KDB to deliver? He’s underwhelmed a bit more recently

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      All look decent. Just go with your gut

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Prob the right answer but my brain is frazzled so was looking for some opinions with fresh eyes!

    3. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      A or D, tough one!

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Very tough right! Those are the main 2 I’m stuck between

  10. The Littlest Robbo
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    A. Lloris & Robbo
    B. Fabianski & TAA (or any other GK upto 5.0)

    Rival has TAA

    I have a feeling my FH might benefit my rival more then me, lol

  11. ShaunGoater123

    has anyone got the link for where you can check on yours (or rivals) performance over the season? captian picks, bench points etc?

    Who to captain if you have all 3 of these?

    A. Dilva
    B. Sterling
    C. KDB

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

      Sterling all day long

    2. potatoace

    1. toerag

      its gonna be close for you

      A i think

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Mane-> Sterling (c)
      Doherty -> Tarkowski and play over cresswell

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Play Jimmy as well. Chelsea are awful at the back

        1. fish&chips
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Sterling has more motivation than Kane and is playing the weaker team. I think you should go for him over Kane unless you think your rivals will go for him and TC him

          1. potatoace
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Why has sterling more motivation than Kane?

            1. fish&chips
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Golden boot & 2 off 100 goals for city I believe

  14. bigdip
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    TC time guys! Who do you think will give the best returns?
    A) Kane
    B) Salah
    C) Dilva
    D) Jesus

    1. toerag

        lol what's funny

        1. toerag

          its making my head hurt

          1. toerag
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            A i think. im getting him over jesus

    2. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      A

    3. mohitischamp
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Kane, given last game he was back to his best

    4. Sailboats
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Any option except D

  15. toerag
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    A Martial or B bruno????? on A atm
    thhoughts??

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      B

    2. bigdip
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      A def

    3. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Yeah I think Martial

    4. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Yes most probably Martial but Morgan is a rash and slow defender, you can't rule out penalty

    5. mohitischamp
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Martial, Bruno is tired and needs a break

    6. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I'm a Bruno owner but thinking of selling for Martial. ML rival has Bruno and Martial is looking sharp, could do well against that Leicester defence.

  16. Captain_Shirokov
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    A) Greenwood, KDB, TAA
    or
    B) Jesus, Ings, Aurier

    Who scores more? I'm leaning towards B.

  17. Tony Martial
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Thoughts on Antonio this week?

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

      Villa will be playing primarily for a 0-0 until they hear results going against them, so I think they will be very difficult to break down

    2. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I'm keen and he's in my FH draft. But tempted to get Dilva instead.

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Unsure. Slightly prefer Puli at 0.3-0.4 more. Looked excellent last night

  18. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 2 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, a striker vs Norwich is too good to miss?

    1. Sailboats
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Sterling, Dilva, KDB

    2. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Sterling and Silva not leaving my team.

      Can't decide between KDB and Jesus

    3. Legohair
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Mahrez

    4. Planet_Marss
      • 1 Year

      sterling dilva mendy

  19. Will J 256
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Hi guys. Hope you are OK. Which five do you prefer?
    1:
    Trent
    Aurier
    Pope
    Greenwood
    Salah
    2:
    VVD
    Bardsley
    Martinez
    Ings
    Mane

    1. Sailboats
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      1

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      1

  20. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Really stuck here.. what's the best move out of these two?

    A. Fernandes & KDB > Stering & Antonio
    B. Jesus & Fernandes > Sterling & Greenwood

    1. Sailboats
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I would not sell any Man City players. Neither option tbh

      1. Hryszko
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I own KDB, Jesus & Dilva already but i want Sterling so one of them has to go?

  21. Sailboats
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Would you do Mane > Sterling(c) for free?

    1. Captain_Shirokov
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      yes

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      For free probably

    3. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I'd want Sterling but Mane is possibly the best differential for 38 and wouldn't be surprised if he hauls

    4. LOLarov
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Captain yes, just sub no

  22. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Best two players to go alongside these?

    Salah, Sterling, Dilva, XXX, XXX

    A. Martial
    B. Bruno
    C. Pulisic
    D. KDB
    E. Mahrez
    F. Antonio

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

      E + A, B or F. Them three are very close imo, hard to pick.

      Jealous of everyone with a FH tho, I must say.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Do you like this team then with the picks you said?

        Martínez
        TAA, Pieters, Aurier
        Salah, Sterling, Dilva, Martial, Mahrez
        Kane, Ings

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

          I absolutely love it. Id go as far as saying it would be my FH38 team.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Cheers matey. No KDB is my only worry I guess

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

            Alos like Tarkowski + Antonio instead of Pieters + Martial. Both great combos

    2. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Really tough. In a similar position.

      I have Salah, Sterling, KdB, Bruno and Antonio in my FH draft but considering doing Bruno to Martial. Also toying with Antonio to Dilva.

      So a roundabout way to answer your question: probably Martial and KdB!

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Yeah, it’s so tough. I can only get KDB and Martial if I downgrade Trent. Worth it?

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Same conundrum for me! TAA was great last night but I do have my doubts about him hauling to that extent again. If we get wind of KdB starting, I think go for him.

          And much as I like Antonio, West Ham Villa could be very tight.

  23. LordEllison
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Current FH team what we thinking lads?
    0.0 in the bank

    Pope, Martin
    TAA, Tark, Aurier, Williams, Simpson
    Salah, Sterling, Mahrez, DSilva, Guendouzi
    Greenwood, Kane, Ings,.

    1. Jellyfish
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Decent

  24. Weasel Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Jesus + Bruno > Wood + Sterling (TC) sound ok?

    Kdb and Foden my other city.

  25. Jellyfish
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    On FH and currently own Sterling and Foden. Thinking doing Foden > Dilva and keeping Sterling is the obvious move?

    1. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I'd expect Mahrez to play over Foden. Dilva and Mahrez both great picks

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

      Yes

    1 FT transfer, leading ML's with a small amount of points.
    Really want Sterling(c) in but i'm trapped with Mendy, take a hit or just swap out De bruyne? Rival chasing got De Bruyne aswell.

    De Gea
    Pieters Gomez Mendy Aurier
    Bruno De Bruyne Mahrez Salah Pulisic
    Ings
    (Greenwood, Egan, DCL)
