The triple-ups I am considering for Blank Gameweek 18 Free Hit squad

Blank Gameweek 18 is just around the corner, and I wanted to use this opportunity to present some picks I feel should be part of your squad if you are opting to use the Free Hit.

At the time of writing, there was a lot of uncertainty looming around Spurs so, for the purpose of this piece I steered clear of the two clubs.

After all, the best way to maximise a Free Hit squad is to base as much as you can on things you are certain about.

    Thoughts on this FH team ?

    DDG
    Cancelo Holding Dier Yedling
    KDB Bruno Son Rashford Saka
    Kane(C) Lacazette

    Walton Brewster Mitchell Smith Rowe

    1. LE CHARO

      There are 4 Arsenal players there.
      Great first XI though

    2. Yes Ndidi
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      I'm all for going strong on FH, but they won't let you play 12.

    3. CobraKai

      Lol oops I took out Saka.

  2. NULL-X-VOID

    I think those who go all out in their chip use in the coming GWs are going to climb OR and would have a fair advantage to sustain their rank, compared to those who would be stuck playing catch up

    1. Shatner's Bassoon

      Still more than 50% of the season left 😀

      1. NULL-X-VOID
        • 6 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        Touche, even sustaining would be difficult with so many uncertainties

  3. thom830g
    • 3 Years
    15 days, 6 hours ago

    This freehit team g2g?

    DDG
    Tierney - Dias - Stones - Dier
    Son - KDB - Fernandes - Rashford - Saka
    Kane

    (4m - Mitchell - Brewster - Hackford)

    1. LE CHARO
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      G2G

  4. Werner Bros
    • 5 Years

    Currently on Darlow on FH but hearing he's not nailed.

    Would you go Leno instead?
    Already have Tierney.

    1. Shatner's Bassoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      2 x Newcastle GKs is a neat solution if you can afford

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        Tough to play the one being sent off and benching the one coming on and saving a pen

      2. Werner Bros
        • 5 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        I can't afford this unfortunately as I have a 4.0 keeper enabler. Would involve changing the team more. Just switched to Leno and have this side with 0.0

        Leno
        Cancelo Tierney AWB
        KDB Bruno Son Rashford Saka
        Kane Wilson

        Forster Brewster Mithchell Bernardo

        1. OLB
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          15 days, 6 hours ago

          You kinda need 1 decent bench player on first sub.
          Wilson is an injury doubt.

          1. Werner Bros
            • 5 Years
            15 days, 6 hours ago

            Brewster or Mitchell not that? Not really sure how else to do it without changing the team

  5. marcos11
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      Are Aguero/Jesus likely to get a lot of minutes over the next three games? Or would Laca be a better option?

    • Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      If Leeds and Southampton dgw19 are off, are there really any viable dgw strikers left, apart from maybe Vardy. And he's also a risk o with ongoing injury problems?

      1. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        The one and only, destroyer of Norwich, Michael Antonio!
        I think it's worth the risk, starts tonight, they already let Haller go, I think he's fit and ready, hope he stays.

      2. Buck The Trent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        Martial

    • Better luck next year
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      Would you free hit/wc if you could only field 8 players, possibly 6 if Mitchell and Reguilon get benched?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        Are the 6 great players?

        1. Better luck next year
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 6 hours ago

          KDB, Bruno, Son, Kane, Stones, Saiss. What do you say?

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            15 days, 6 hours ago

            It's decent for sure.
            Pretty much need United & Arsenal to concede to escape the FHers

    • Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      Predictions:

      Sheff Utd 1-0 Newcastle (Lundstram, Ramsdale saves Wilson penalty)
      Burnley 1-3 Man Utd (Wood, Martial x2, Greenwood)
      Wolves 1-1 Everton (Traore, Hamez)
      Man City 4-1 Brighton (Sterling x2, Mahrez, Bilva, Dunk)
      Spurs 1-1 Fulham (Ndombele, Decordova-Reid)
      Arsenal 2-1 Palace (Aubameyang x2, Zaha)

      1. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        I would put a bet on this.

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          15 days, 6 hours ago

          It's the FPL way 🙂

      2. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        I'll settle with 10 assists

    • Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      keep watkins now on Wildcard?? no other good option at his price at the moment.

      1. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        The other two strikers?

        1. Lindelol
          • 2 Years
          15 days, 6 hours ago

          Kane and the other 2 have to pick from antonio, wilson and watkins

          1. onceuponatyne
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            15 days, 6 hours ago

            I've gone Antonio...

          2. Nanoelektronicar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            15 days, 6 hours ago

            Wilson and Antonio.

    • Coaly
      • 8 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      Saka or Gundogan the better play this week?

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        Both good. I’ll probably have both if I FH.

      2. BOATIES FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        I'm going Gundogan, ESR first sub

    • wulfranian
      • 4 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      Here are the Gameweek 29 Blank permutations from Ben Crellin.
      https://twitter.com/BenCrellin/status/1348722117416787972/photo/1
      My early predictions are that gw29's games will be:
      Liverpool-Chelsea
      Wbrom-Everton
      Fulham-Leeds
      Brighton-Newcastle
      Sutd-Villa

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        Don't think Chelsea get through that draw?

        1. wulfranian
          • 4 Years
          15 days, 6 hours ago

          You are right.My mistake on Chelsea's easy games.

      2. Tony Martial
        • 2 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        FH 29 probably then

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          15 days, 6 hours ago

          Same here

    • BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      FH Team, no glaring errors?

      Lloris
      Cancelo Maguire Tierney
      KDB (v) Bruno Son Gundogan
      Kane (c) Laca Wilson

      Steele ESR Yedlin Mitchell

    • ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      Does the FA cup draw mean Leeds won't play gw19? Are there others that won't play gw19 due to FA cup?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        S'ton it seems.

        1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          15 days, 6 hours ago

          Phew. I thought there would be further damage to my team. 3 Leeds though and that's going to hurt. As will any Covid related changes.

          Thanks TM. Much appreciated.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            15 days, 6 hours ago

            Potentially just play one game (v Brighton) rather than 2

            1. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              15 days, 6 hours ago

              Gotcha. that's not too bad. Though, bamford to Antonio becomes appealing. If Antonio can go on a run without injuries

    • Gentle_Turks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      Been away a few days, now trying to catch up on all the chaos. How likely that the Leeds Southampton GW19 match is off?

    • Buck The Trent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      Does the FA cup draw means three of LIV, MUN, FUL, BUR, SOT, ARS (plus whoever their opponents) will play in BGW29?

      1. Buck The Trent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 6 hours ago

        Ah .. just saw the post by wulfranian above

    • LE CHARO
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      Hi guys ! Using my FH this GW and I would like some opinions on the options I am considering.

      ***, 4.0
      Tierney, Stones, Cancelo, ***, ***
      Fernandes, KDB, Son, ***, ***
      Kane, Laca, ***

      What is best to fill the gaps?
      A) Lloris, AWB, Saka (bench : Neto, Yedlin, Brewster) - balanced squad but missing a second MU attacker
      B) DDG, Rashford, ESR (bench : Mitchell, Douglas, Davis) - very solid XI but awful bench with only Mitchell likely to play
      C) same as B with DDG, Mitchell > Ramsdale, Yedlin to give me another option on the bench in case things go south

      Cheers

    • Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      McCarthy
      CANCELO / ROBBO / COUFAL
      SALAH / FERNANDES / Son / SOUCEK
      VARDY / Bamford / Dcl

      Forster // Raphinha / TAYLOR / Alioski

      Assuming SOU/LEE gets moved, this would be my GW19 side. I'd move DCL for Antonio. Not worth a BB right, but still perfectly serviceable for GW19?

      Toying with going with this, or somehow playing my WC this week to take advantage of BB & save FH for 29.

    • SomeoneKnows
      • 4 Years

      Cancelo Stones
      KDB Bruno Son
      Kane

      Bench: Martinez, Forster, Dallas, Bednarek, Douglas, Grealish, Soucek, Bamford, DCL

      Already used my FT, got 2 mil itb and plan is to BB next week

      A) DCL > Wilson (-4)
      B) DCL > Lacazette (-4)
      C) Forester > De Gea (-4)
      D) Douglas > Dier (-4)
      E) Use the FH card

    • Gentle_Turks

      What's the latest on Villa? Do we know which players tested positive yet?

    • hogree
      • 3 Years
      15 days, 2 hours ago

      Which two for your free hit?

      1. Shaw and Rashford
      2. Foden and Lacazette
