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.

    In before 'Play Up Pompey'

  2. Kryptonite666
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Who is the best Grealish replacement for BGW ? Upto 8.9

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Rashford

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        He's 9.6 believe it or not.

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 8 days ago

          True, soz. I like Mahrez, if he starts.

  3. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Pick one (No FH)

    A Sterling Dias
    B Rashford AWB

    Have KDB Bruno Cancelo

    (assuming a fit Sterling)

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      B

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      A, means 4 city??

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Sorry. I messed up.
        Its
        Sterling AWB
        Rashford Dias

    3. Dexters Laboratory
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 8 days ago

      A

  4. BrockLanders
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    My heads went full Exorcist over this BGW. Anyone know whether they're gonna make it through alive?

  5. Ziyech on the Bench
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Thoughts on this Free hit team?

    Leno / 4.0

    Shaw, Dier, Stones / Kilman, Mitchell

    Son, KDB(C), Bruno, Neto / 4.5

    Kane, Wilson, Jesus

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Looks decent. Shaw fit though??

    2. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Jesus

    3. Jimbo-Jones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Jesus a bit of a gamble (and expensive at that).
      Prefer 352 and get Rash but could pay off.

      Rest is good - I'm considering Shaw vs Davies as only have 4.8 for final defender.

      1. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Yedlin

    4. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Jesus is a good shout imo

  6. Jeremy Corbyn
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Is Cavani an option?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I wouldn't touch personally. Could easily be benched

      1. doher.ty
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 8 days ago

        This

    2. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I love him. But a bit too risky albeit 3 games in hand

  7. DAZZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    On a FH:

    A) Lloris, Tierney, Smith-Rowe
    Or
    B) DDG, Dier, Saka.

    Tough one. Thoughts?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Very close. Probably A, just.

    2. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 8 days ago

      B - but Biased. See below:

  8. doher.ty
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Decided I was going to FH - Thoughts on this team

    DDG
    Stones, Dias, Dier, Tierny
    Bruno, KDB, Son
    Kane, Laca, Wilson

    Bench: Saka, Mitchell, Anguissa

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Dier over Saka???

      1. doher.ty
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Yup - 50/50 can't really see Fulham scoring so it's a tough decision. Rather have a good bench just in case.

    This is going to be a volatile day for price changes isn't it? I mean I know the day before deadline day or deadline day generally are but I think this Spurs fixture announcement after so many days of not knowing means people that have managed to hold themselves off are letting loose now

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Yes, done my transfers but not hit the chip yet... just incase 🙂

    2. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 8 days ago

      WCs don't count towards price changes and I suspect a good portion will be that. None the less, likely to be a lot of price changes.

    3. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Think its mostly free hits bringing them in and rest have them....dont think will change much

    4. Sam-not-so-wise
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      you think this is volatile, look at BTC and ETH

  11. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Pretty set now, Dias could drop down to Stones but I’m not sure.
    FH18 look G2G?

    Darlow
    Cancelo Dias Tierney
    KDB Bruno Son Saka
    Kane Laca Wilson
    (4.0, Yedlin, Mitchell, Reed)

    1. Jimbo-Jones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Can't really see where you'd put the Dias money (except maybe upgrade Darlow to Lloris), so would keep as is.

    2. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      You pretty sure Wilson starts?

      1. doher.ty
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Why whats the news been?

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Imagine so. Is there any pressers tomorrow?

  12. Fuddled FC
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Is Lascelles an option now?

    At 4.2 he's a perfect enabler

    1. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      That's my worry. Who's his competition?

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      is he free form injury ?

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      No. 45mins at the weekend and came off with fatigue. Won’t start

  13. FPL_BUCCANEER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Martinez Forster
    Cancelo Robbo Lowton Dallas Coufal
    KDB Bruno Salah Son Soucek
    Watkins Bamford Brewster

    Thinking of Forster, Robbo, Salah -> DDG, Dias, Rashford to give

    DDG
    Dias Cancelo Lowton
    KDB Bruno Son Rashford
    Brewster

    Then GW19 Rashford -> Salah (or could even do Brewster -> Antonio(?)), and BB.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks all

    Anyone know if premier league covid test results are out on a particular day every week or is it fixture reliant like pressers?

  15. Mattymo23
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Sorry not done one yet but would anyone please comment on my FH team?

    De Gea
    Dias Dier Holding
    Bruno KDB Rash Son
    Kane Wilson

    Fodder ESR Brewster Kilman

    Thank you!

    1. doher.ty

      Don't see anything wrong with it

  16. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Lindelof or Shaw for next 3?

    (They're not injured)

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Shaw

    2. NejiHyuuga01
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Shaw but don't be surprised if he played one game in the Double

  17. FourLokoLeipzig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Does anyone have the updated clean sheet odds? I’m assuming Spurs will be up there alongside City?

    MCI: 53%
    MNU: 45%
    ARS: 44%
    SHU: 37%

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Shu!!!!

  18. quayle99
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Hows this?

    Darlow
    Tierney Cancelo WanB
    KDB Son Fernandes Foden SRowe
    Kane(c) Wilson

    [Ramsdale, Holding, Benteke, Lindlof]

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Nice. Foden a tasty differential

  19. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Apologies if this is a little too good! Triple City, United, Spurs and double Arsenal!

    Lloris
    Cancelo Dias Tierney AWB
    KDB Bruno Son Rashford Saka
    Kane
    4.0 Brewster Mitchell 3.9

    1. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I'm planning for next 3 (BB in 19) so I'd free up cash for that bench

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        It's a FH!

  20. NejiHyuuga01
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Cup opponent has only 3 playing in the Blank while I planned to navigate without FH chip. 99% he uses it. I guess you can't chase all competitions after all.

  21. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Nice to see Wood getting mentioned in the article with 5 big chances in last 4. Not feeling so bad after seeing that. Think I have never owned Burnley striker before.

  22. doher.ty
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Rash and Brewster
    or
    Laca and Saka (first bench)

    1. Dexters Laboratory
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Rashford

  23. Neo-Viper
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    How's Foden for the third City spot?

    Have Stones and KDB

    1. Dexters Laboratory
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Great Differential

  24. Dexters Laboratory
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Best (C) this week
    A. Kane
    B. Son
    C. KDB
    D. Bruno
    E. Laca
    Currently KDB (C) Kane (VC)

    1. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 8 days ago

      So many good options this week. I'm going Kane but have had it on KDB and Bruno.

    Would you save FH chip if I can field the following?

    1. yalala

    2. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  30. dbeck

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Cant have them all, plus fulham def stat are very good of late

    2. Super Saints

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Close to mine: DDG > Lloris, Rashford > Maguire, Wilson > Kane for 4-4-2 line up

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

    4. Sterling Malory
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      It's missing Kane.
