The case for Aubameyang as part of a Free Hit squad in FPL Blank Gameweek 18

In his latest column, three-time top 200 finisher Lateriser argues that deploying a Free Hit chip is the perfect time to awaken your inner maverick.


“A ship is always safe at the shore but that is not what it’s built for.” – Albert Einstein

Gameweek 18 is upon us and inadvertently, for a lot of you (but not me), it means that the Free Hit chip is about to be deployed.

Even the name tells us that this is a once-in-a-season, no-strings-attached, no-holds-barred, inner-voice-enabling chip! If you’re not channelling that inner instinct most weeks because this is ‘template season’ and are way too fearful of losing to the crowd, then this is the week to awaken your inner maverick. Put on your multi-coloured jacket and listen to yourself. Do it this one Gameweek – if you’re using the Free Hit, obviously. I insist!

Going with the theme of this introduction, I’m going to throw in a few not-so-template names in the hat that might seem ridiculous or not smart at first go, but I’ll build a case for them and leave the decision to you.

Also, I am writing this article before the Manchester cup derby so do not have any relevant information from that game at my disposal.

So the stage is set: enter Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m). I know, I know. Bukayo Saka (£5.3m) is literally mirroring his stats in the last few Gameweeks and costs six million less.

But when you’re looking at one stand-alone week, value doesn’t matter. So what case do I have for Aubameyang? In the last two Gameweeks, when he’s started with the in-form, rejuvenated Arsenal attackers, he is matching the stats of Saka and Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m).

He’s registered 1.42 expected goals (xG) in his last two games, which is the same he managed in five full matches previously. His total of two big chances in the last two Gameweeks is also the same he managed in five full games previously.

All it takes is one game to click, to come back into form. All it takes is one poorly time Joel Ward (£4.3m) tackle in the penalty box for Aubameyang to hammer a penalty in the top-right corner. I mean, with 22 goals and a 24% conversion rate in both of his previous seasons, we know the class and the finishing ability of the man.

Arsenal are playing much better football right now, so much so that they are joint-top of the league (tied with Aston Villa) for shots in the box in the last four Gameweeks. If he’s going to get the chances, you’d fancy him to convert.

It comes down to the age-old argument of judging the data set of this terrible season that Arsenal have had or that of his previous six seasons, where he’s been one of Europe’s most lethal finishers.

Now if this was a long-term commitment, there’s no way I’d encourage getting into a more serious relationship with him. But he seems exciting enough for a fling, in my opinion. If you don’t do it, fair enough; I know there are ‘more right’ things to do on a Free Hit.

The next name I am going to throw in the ring is Luke Shaw (£4.8m). Yes, I’m recommending a player that has one Fantasy Premier League assist to his name in the last two seasons.

I’ll give you five reasons:

  • a) He’s not injured at the moment
  • b) He’s playing some really good football right now
  • c) He’s on some free-kicks and corners
  • d) No defender has created more chances than him in the last four Gameweeks
  • e) Burnley are bottom five in the league for shots in the box conceded in the last six Gameweeks

The third and final name that I’d like to throw into this hat is Raheem Sterling (£11.4m). I’m presuming most Free Hitters will triple up on Manchester City and while a double-up on defence might seem the right play long term (Joao Cancelo (£5.7m) needs to be one of them), for one Gameweek alone, I do like a Sterling punt.

He’s been in pretty good nick of late, registering six returns in as many games and clocking 90 minutes in all of them. When I’m looking at one-week punts, Sterling is one of those players that screams ‘brace potential’ to me. He did more than that last time he played his Gameweek 18 opponents, having scored a hat-trick at the Amex Stadium in 2019/20.

He’s second only to Jack Grealish (£7.7m) for expected assists (xA) in the last four Gameweeks and has four shots in the box in the same timeframe. Why I do like Sterling (and a City attacking double-up) in a fixture against Brighton is because the Seagulls will want to play their own game, rather than sit back. Like the Chelsea match, this will suit the press-resistant Manchester City attackers and offer them more space than they are generally used to.

For those that are not on the Free Hit, it seems like a good time to target assets from the Manchester teams as they play three matches in the next two Gameweeks and the fixtures are pretty decent from Gameweek 20, as well.

If you are still on the edge in terms of whether to Free Hit or not, one other factor I’d like you to consider is this: if you are using the Free Hit in Gameweek 18 and then spending transfers to get the same players from the Manchester teams next week, it might be worth holding onto the chip and then taking a hit or two to just bring the players in ahead of next Tuesday.

Remember it’s about the quality of the players you have and not the quantity.

Spurs v Fulham postponed as second Gameweek 16 fixture falls by the wayside

On a personal note, I’ve been climbing steadily and am currently ranked at 1.8 million in the world but can’t help but feel miffed at being on the wrong side of coronavirus-influenced rescheduling in Gameweek 16, having spent my last four transfers on Spurs and City players. I mentioned that the City defence were the best in the league last time I wrote and nothing has changed my opinion since.

If you want to know more about other, not-so-maverick Free Hit picks, as well as an in-depth discussion on Arsenal and the Manchester teams, do have a listen to this week’s episode of The FPL Wire (linked below). We’ll be doing another special episode this Saturday where we’ll be interviewing Ragabolly, who is the creator or LiveFPL, VirtualFPL and a new Fantasy planning tool – so look out for that, as well.

Good luck this Gameweek!

    FH the following 6 players (8 players with -4)?

    (De Gea)
    Dias, Targett, Mitchell
    KDB, Bruno (Saka)
    Kane

    1. Right In The Stanchion
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Will probably be well below average with that lineup so I'd free hit.

      • Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Given that Mitchell may not even play, I would FH

      • Patron
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        I have 5 and I’m doing FH, would do In your case too.
        Tho many will disagree I think haha.

      • RealSocialDads
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        I think I'm saving my free hit and playing the following for - 4:

        Dias Cancelo
        KDB Bruno Son
        Kane Wood

        So depends if you think FH could be better used later in the season

      I currently have 8, maybe 9 players for BGW 18 (if Kilman plays).

      Team is:

      Martinez

      Dias Kilman

      Grealish Son De Bruyne Bruno

      DCl Watkins

      Do I

      A) Do nothing
      B) Robbo to Cancelo for a -4 (Already bought in KDB for Salah)
      C) Free Hit

      Is Robbo essential for DGW?

      1. The VAR Team
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 20 days ago

        B for me

    3. OneDennisBergkamp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      big dilemma for me, need some opinions.. which of these should i do..

      play FH with this team..
      Darlow (shu)
      Clark (shu) / Stones (BRI) / Cancelo (BRI)
      Grealish (TOT) / De Bruyne (BRI) / Fernandes (bur) / Son (avl)
      Lacazette (CRY) / Wilson (shu) / Kane (avl)

      Or do i take a -4 and play this team with 10 players but worse fixtures?

      Martinez (TOT)
      Lowton (MUN) / Stones (BRI) / Cancelo (BRI)
      Grealish (TOT) / De Bruyne (BRI) / Fernandes (bur) / Son (avl)
      DCL (wol) / Blank / Kane (avl)

      on my best rank yet so really dont wanna F it up.. 🙂

      1. Bartowski
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Firstly I'd wait a bit closer to deadline in case more games get called off but if not I'd go with the second option. Free Hit is probably going to be more valuable later on than when you can play 10 players.

      2. fpl_tp95
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Personally I'd take the -4.

        I don't think the teams are different enough to warrant a FH when it could be saved for later in the year.

        Having said that I have a similar team and I'm debating the same thing haha as I'm also worried about loosing rank.

      3. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Def save it if no injuries. Your free hit is literally adding 3 Newcastle players and one of the most unreliable FPL assets of all time in Lacazette.

        1. OneDennisBergkamp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          am thinking FH also provides bench cover though if someone like one of the 3 city players dont play

    4. Bartowski
      • 10 Years

      Ajax signing Haller suddenly makes Antonio a much more intriguing acquisition.

      1. HollywoodXI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Moyes will play Soucek up front. Just like he did with Fellaini. Watch and see.

        1. Bartowski
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I'm down for that.

            Me too. Soucek owner from GW1 O/

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        It was never the competition. It’s down to him always being injured.

      3. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Unfortunately you're acquiring his hamstrings too.

      4. The VAR Team
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 20 days ago

        It’s hard to justify him until he plays some significant minuets

    5. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Some will say it's a free hit team:

      Martinez
      Holding, Dias, Mitchell
      KDB, Sterling, Bruno, Grealish
      Kane, Brewster

      In a week which feels like damage limitation, a good captain should see me through it without too much damage. Easier said than done on the back of 5 captain blanks.

      Son and DCL the main threats. Got a feeling Brewster is gonna get off the mark too.

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        I have a strong feeling Brewster will do SFA, which is why I don't own him.

    6. The VAR Team
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Who would you rather have for their two games in GW18-19?

      A) Saka
      B) Soucek
      C) Take a hit to switch between them

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        B long term

        Im not really one to write serious posts, but these circumstances require a comment. What we’ve seen recently is what happens when a megalomaniac leader with grandiose delusions is finally faced with something not going his way. Its a sad, sad, and frankly pathetic sight. Fights with the media, with the opposition, and even with people who normally give him way more support than he deserves. Normally all smiles and big words, but now hes like a rat trapped in a corner, snapping and biting desperately at everything around him, knowing the end is near. The worst thing for me is to see that his supporters eat it all up. Im not surprised as they are the most deluded in the country by far, but its still scary to see the extents of the brainwashing. In my humble opinion, he has to step down, because Liverpool is becoming a laughing stock.

        Team for gw18 after free transfers. Any hits needed?

        Martinez
        Cancelo Stones
        KDB Bruno Son Grealish Saka
        Kane Watkins

        Fortser; Coufal, Ayling, KWP, Bamford

        No goalie
        Stones Cancelo
        Son Podence Bruno Grealish
        Watkins

        1. aapoman
          • 7 Years

          I'd do it. How many fts. If you have 2 then maybe you can save FH

          1. Dreams
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            Yes. Two fts. Was also thinking of saving but don't want to miss out on any points.

            1. aapoman
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              I would then save the FH. 9 playing players for gw18 should be fine.

                        That's a good call, I was maybe thinking Kwp>Yedlin since it should be an easy clean sheet,

            Should I completely risk and go with players like Richarlison over Kane but with the fear of losing the advantage of FH ?
            I will just pick those that I think are gonna score the most

              Laca a better punt

                Laca 100% in my team. Just Richarlison scoring a brace in each of his 2 seasons at Everton versus Wolves, plus the fact that Jrod returns to the starting XI is gonna make Everton an attacking team once again.

                  It's one gw only, go with your gut! I'm thinking Villa-Spurs will be low-scoring so Son might be enough

                Depends on how you like to play the game. Personally I’d always pick the team I believe will score the most points as a unit it will be a differential in its own right. But if you are more focused on having fun and want a week of sneaky punts go for it

              Is it worth taking a -4 hit just to bring a second keeper for a DGW BB?

              Apart from the points "risk", my concern is that it will also essentially force me to use a FT right after the DGW to get him out

                      I could do Tierney to Stones or downgrade Rashford/Son to Foden. Sterling seems a little too expensive for my budget

                      I'm getting Aubamayang on FH and may even captain. Such a massive differential.

                      Question for Laca buyers...arent his minutes worrying for you? He is in good scoring form but couple of games ago he also scored and started next game on bench anyway.
                      I also want to punt on him on FH but for 8.3 i would like at least be sure he is starting next game..

                        hi, ...good point but as an arsenal fan i would be amazed if arteta started trying to chop and change. Palace always give us a good game (although they look weak this year). I hate having arsenal players in my team (emotional hedge) but i have three for my 18 FH team. I think laca has form and arteta will start him

                              Worth me doing Dallas -> Stones for BGW18 so I can field 11? Or save transfer for the DGW19?

                                Surely you'll want Dallas for DGW

                                  Exactly my dilemma. I guess it makes sense to field 10 and keep Dallas and have 2FT’s ahead of the double?

                              Im all for differentials but i wouldnt be going for a forward who just cant score at the moment. Kane, Son, sterling, Rashford, Laca even Neto and Saka are all better picks than him IMO.

                                  Yeah, that's for sure which could be a curse or a blessing. Hard to do a WC team with gw19 in mind.

                            • Miguel Sanchez
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              Who do you think scores more in the DGW:

                              A) Antonio
                              B) Soucek

                                I think Antonio if hes back

                              2. Wild Card this...

                                1 month, 20 days ago

                                Well, Antonio will probably play 1, definitely not both games.
                                I would go for Soucek.

                                Soucek 10 goals

                                  Its always nice to have a bit of a gamble XD but fair play thank you. C is looking rather tempting

                              Lads, would you please help me out here?

                              McCarthy / Steer
                              Robertson / Dias / Cresswell / Saïss /  Dallas
                              Salah / Bruno / Son / Grealish / Soucek
                              DCL / Watkins / Bamford

                              DCL to Wilson, Steer to Martinez for a hit? This would give me 8 playing players for GW18, and good options for a bench boost on GW19. Sounds reasonable?

                                Personally would do Robbo > Cancelo instead of DCL > Wilson

                                Soucek is not a bench player
