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.

    Random question I know but....would you keep or sell Mendy for final game?? Will he play against Norwich??

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

      Same here.. My biggest headache right now!

    2. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Its his turn to play. I'd keep

    3. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I would keep if you already have him. Hopefully get some team news before deadline

    4. D.Glynn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I'd keep, I'm considering him on FH. He was rested last game

    Feels like jesus might get benched ... what do you guys think?

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

      wait for teamsheets

    2. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      yeah I fear this.
      Played 2 x 90 min games in a row and was pretty rubbish.

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

      He’s their only striker. He will start

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

        Sterling up top for GB?

      2. migas2k7
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        that's not been true always

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

    On FH, which do you prefer?

    A. Mahrez, Mane, Bruno
    B. KDB, 10.2 mid/fwd (not from City), Bruno
    C. KDB, Mane, 6.8 mid/fwd (Traore?)

    Rest of attack is Sterling, Dilva, Kane, Greenwood.

    Arteta: "I think it is our responsibility [to pick a strong side v Watford]. A strong side doesn't mean that players that have played less will not participate. For me, it's more about how we approach the game and how we go into that game to win the game."
    Same like the game vs Villa?

  6. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Who would you rather have this week?

    A. Jesus
    B. KDB

    I can't have both, need to pick one or the other (other two players are Sterling & Dilva)

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      B

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

      b

    3. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      B

    4. toerag
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      b

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

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

    Who scores more? I'm leaning towards B

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

      A

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

      A

    3. toerag
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      a

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

    Sub 4.2m defs likely to start/possible chance of CS. Need two for 4th & 5th on FH bench.

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

      Currently have Braithwaite & Williams - any better, probably won’t play, or at least I hope not

    2. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Rico, Lamptey, Branthwaite seem the best options

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

        Who does Lamptey play for?

        1. Traction Engine Foot
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Brighton.

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

            Likely to start? Might spread risk and play instead of triple Burnley (Pope, Pieters & Bardsley) or Stephens (SOT) - what ya reckon?

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

      Plenty to choose from between Peiters, Johnson, Braithwaite & Williams

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

        Who is Johnson? Which team?

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

          West Ham, filling in for injured Fredicks. If Fredicks is still out for the final game I think he is the most likely 4m to keep a clean sheet

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

            Ah righto, yeah West Ham seem to be finishing well....cheers

  9. Jon Walter's Hatty
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Simple one for me now..Mahrez to make 3 likely starting City or Pulisic

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

      Pulisic

    2. Cojiro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Mahrez. Wolves defence is strong

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

    Its all about FH on here at mo.

    Those with TC left, who are you captaining?

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

      The one with the most points.
      Hopefully

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

        This

  11. Wirbelwind
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    A) KDB / Trezeguet / Ings
    B) Mahrez / Son / Ayew (Bench)

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

    Bring in mahrez for foden (jimmy benched)? Or Kane for jimmy (foden benched)?

    Reina martinez
    Azpi aurier awb sais egan
    Sterling kdb foden* martial willian
    Greenwood auba jimmy*

    1 ft 2.9M itb

  13. D.Glynn
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 29 days ago

    19 points ahead of ML rival. He has VVD. Is TAA to VVD a good move on FH or stick? TAA could be rotated, VVD could score a header. Maybe I'm answering my own question.

    1. Obi Wan Elokobi
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      VVD isn’t going to outscore TAS by 20

      1. D.Glynn
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 29 days ago

        True.

  14. fakelund
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    What to do with this bunch... Fairly happy, but have 1FT and £1.8 ITB, thoughts?

    Henderson
    Doherty, TAA, Tarkowski
    Sterling (c), Foden, Dilva, Fernandes
    Jimenez, Ings, Rashford

    (Fodder, AWB, Norwood, Lascelles)

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

      Rash to kane

      1. fakelund
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        £0.2 short, would have to be a hit

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Doc -> Robbo?

      1. fakelund
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        AWB > Robbo and bench Doherty could work..?

  15. Vovhund
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Best FH option:

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

    B)
    Pope
    TAA-Digne-Aurier
    Salah-Sterling-Mahrez-Dilva
    Greenwood-Kane-Wood

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

      B

  16. Trentino
    2 months, 29 days ago

    So Auba is not in favour here anymore? Why?

    1. Cojiro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Has good base stats, not a bad option still

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

      Good option but id rather have harry i think

      1. Trentino
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I was thinking both Auba & Kane + Ings up front

    3. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Possible rest for FA Cup?

      1. Trentino
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Maybe but it's still 6 days rest after Sunday before FA Cup final.

  17. Cojiro
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Triple Burnley defence on FH? Tempting

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

      Very tempting

    2. Trentino
      2 months, 29 days ago

      All eggs in the same basket... might reward your highly or fail you.

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

      Been thinking of it, but it's immensely risky. Their CS odds aren't that high

    4. D.Glynn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Only takes one mistake to mess your week. Personally not a fan

    1. LOLarov
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No

      1. Weasel Boy

        Yo

  19. manbob
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    How's my FH team looking?

    Pope
    Long Pieters Gomez
    Sterling Salah Son Martial DSilva
    Greenwood Kane

    (Nketiah, Simpson, Williams)

    0.7 ITB.

    Considering Gomez + Martial > VVD + Pulisic.

    Any thoughts greatly appreciated!

    Which one for a hit?

    a) Foden to Dilva/Mahrez.
    b) Rash to Auba.Play Foden.

    Thanks.

    Hey guys! What would you do here?

    Salah KDB Mahrez Bruno (Hayden)
    Vardy Rashford Greenwood

    A. Salah > Sterling (C)
    B. Above plus Vardy > Kane -4
    C. Hayden & Vardy > Dilva & Wood/Ings -4
    D. Vardy > Jesus

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

      C with Ings

      1. DAVESAVES
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Bench Greenwood then?

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

          Ah right, no play Greenwood and do B, benching Hayden

          1. DAVESAVES
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Thanks

        Thanks

  23. Shark Team

    2 months, 29 days ago

    Considering Auba captaincy instead of Sterling. Auba is very close to the golden boot and he can easily score a brace or more with Mike Dean as referee

    1. Trentino
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Might be good if you are chasing as most will captain Sterling

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

      Sterling is close to Golden Boot too

  24. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    You do know the players who will haul in the final GW will be totally obscure. Happens every season.

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

      Yep

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

      Stanislas 19 point hero

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

        Abdoulaye Doucouré - 2 x goals, 1 x assist, CS and max baps

    3. PastaConcerto
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      That's part of the joy of it....but 37 had many heavy hitters with low scores...besides Sterling

    4. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Lucas Moura to run riot

    5. Major League Shocker

      Che Adams hat trick incoming.

  25. harrythealien
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Since the 2019/2020 Premier League season is almost over, i started thinking about definite / potential player reclassifications and their appeal as FPL assets in 2020/2021 season.

    In the "definite bracket" 3 names come to my mind:
    - Martial from MID to FWD
    - Lundstram from DEF to MID
    - Ritchie from DEF to MID

    I also think there is a strong chance for:
    - Rashford from FWD to MID
    - Greenwood from FWD to MID
    - Richarlison from MID to FWD
    - Antonio from MID to FWD

    If it happens, Rashford (for 9.0 mil) and/or Greenwood (for 5.0-6.0 mil) could be season keepers.

    Who else do you think is definitely getting reclassified and how do you grade their appeal for next season?

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

      Rashford to MID would make him essential

    2. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Agree with you

      Martial FWD will be interesting. Greenwood as a MID could be absolute gold too.

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

      Agree with the first three 100%

      - Rashford - yes
      - Greenwood - no, he's a poacher (not that he doesn't have other skills!) and I think Ole wants him out wide, cutting inside, to gain match experience without the pressure of having to lead the line and score all the goals/dictate all the link-up play
      - Richarlison - dunno
      - Antonio - still think he's a midfielder, but he's having to put a shift in (brilliantly so) up front because they are thin on the ground in that area and he's having to do all the work. If Haller started to do the job West Ham paid him to do then Antonio would be back on the flanks

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

      Greenwood will be more then likely be priced at 7.0 to 7.5

  26. Lav
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Sterling(c) or David Silva(c) ?

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

      Raz

    2. PastaConcerto
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Has to be Sterling...but I'm going DSilva out of sentiment, mostly because I'm up in my ML by 89 currently

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

        nice

    3. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Sterling

    4. Ciarant20
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Sterling

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

      Head says Sterling, heart says D. Silva

  27. Ciarant20
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    1 Mane Pieters Dsilva
    2. Mahrez Doherty DSilva

    If Jesus benched would you swap him out for a hit?

    Or do you think he could do damage off the bencg and may as well hold?

      Tough I think just B due to how terrible Norwich are, could be 5/6/7 goals and you’d want as many assets there as possible

        Ironically, Norwich actually beat City at the Carrow road

    Which option is best? Terrifying not to have Sterlo vs Norwich

    A) KDB Doherty ➡ Sterlo(c) Pieters -4
    B) KDB Bruno ➡ Sterlo(c) Dilva -4
    C) Forget Sterlo and do Willian ➡ Dilva FT

          I don’t feel comfortable selling Kdb though

            • 8 Years

              But he might play deep. Sterling won’t.
