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.

    Who is the best Grealish replacement for BGW ? Upto 8.9

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 hours ago

      Rashford

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        He's 9.6 believe it or not.

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 8 hours ago

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

  3. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 hours ago

    Pick one (No FH)

    A Sterling Dias
    B Rashford AWB

    Have KDB Bruno Cancelo

    (assuming a fit Sterling)

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 hours ago

      B

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 hours ago

      A, means 4 city??

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        Sorry. I messed up.
        Its
        Sterling AWB
        Rashford Dias

    3. Dexters Laboratory
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        A

    4. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 hours ago

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

      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
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        Looks decent. Shaw fit though??

      2. Daniel - When to BB?
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        Jesus

      3. Jimbo-Jones
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 hours 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
          3 months, 8 hours ago

          Yedlin

      4. FantasyHero
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        Jesus is a good shout imo

    6. Jeremy Corbyn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 hours ago

      Is Cavani an option?

      1. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        I wouldn't touch personally. Could easily be benched

        1. doher.ty
            3 months, 8 hours ago

            This

        2. jayzico
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 8 hours ago

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

      2. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 hours ago

        On a FH:

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

        Tough one. Thoughts?

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 8 hours ago

          Very close. Probably A, just.

        2. doher.ty
            3 months, 8 hours ago

            B - but Biased. See below:

        3. doher.ty
            3 months, 8 hours 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
              3 months, 8 hours ago

              Dier over Saka???

              1. doher.ty
                  3 months, 8 hours 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

                  • 5 Years

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

                2. doher.ty
                    3 months, 8 hours 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.

                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 8 hours ago

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

                    you think this is volatile, look at BTC and ETH

                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 8 hours 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
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 8 hours ago

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

                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 8 hours ago

                    You pretty sure Wilson starts?

                        Imagine so. Is there any pressers tomorrow?

                    Is Lascelles an option now?

                    At 4.2 he's a perfect enabler

                    1. jayzico
                      • 10 Years
                      3 months, 8 hours ago

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

                      is he free form injury ?

                    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

                      Lindelof or Shaw for next 3?

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

                      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.

                      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.
