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.

    Son Kane and even dwfender on FH? Was going to have only Son if Aston Villa but now have changed my mind. Who are your Spurs, do you need both Son and Kane now?

      Kane and a defender, like Son less vs. teams they can’t hit on the counter

          Yes but no confirmation I expect

    Kdb bruno rashford son
    Kane laca wilson

    If you are willing to go cheap on defense
    Ramsdale
    Holding. Yedlin. Dier

    1. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I don't dislike it. But also feels like a City defender would be useful.

      1. Jrot94
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Just put in stones for dier

    with exact money to do Dunne to Stones for free, problem is that Dunne is set to drop in price tonight to 3.8, pull the trigger ?
    Normally i like to do transfers on deadline day, but i think all chaos already done up to deadline.

    Yes or no ?

    1. No Totti No Party

      Yes

    Any news of Ederson, will he start ?

  7. Jellyfish

    FH team activated...

    Leno
    Stones AWB Dier
    Asks KDB Son Rash Bruno
    Kane Laca

    Any further changes or g2g?

  8. iL PiStOlErO
    • 1 Year

    What about this FH? Try with few punts maybe...

    Pickford
    Cancelo Tierney AWB
    KdB Bruno Son Foden Saka
    Kane(C) Martial

    4.0 Lowton Mitchell Brewster

    0.1 itb

    1. royals forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Foden and Martial rotation risks what about Lacazette instead

  9. Klip Klopp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    I still haven’t activated my FH and quite frankly I dunno what I’m waiting for? Is it time to play it or should I field this 8 + a hit

    This is my 6. I have 0FT and 0.8 itb.

    Cancelo / Dier
    Son / Fernandes / KDB
    Kane / DCL*

    Bench: Foster, Martinez, ,Raphina, Bamford, Coufal, Chillwell, Bissouma

    A. Worth doing Chilwell + DCL to 5.3 + Jesus
    B. OR just suck it up and play my FH?

    1. Niho992
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Play FH but wait till tomorrow.

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Similar situation to mine. Was going to save my FH but with that Fulham game now and DCL injured I am doing it. Triple spurs, triple utd, triple city, tierney, saka and maybe even Leno. Also there is enough for decent bench. Still havent pressed it bu looks very good so will try it probably. Gl mate

      1. Klip Klopp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Thanks for that insightful answer pal. I might hold off until tomorrow before I activate it. Good luck to you too

    TC in GW 19 if Soton-Leeds is postponed?

  11. RedWolf

    Will any villa players testing positive have enough time to be available for the dgw?

    Hi

    Your help would be appreciated please

    Yay or Nay for this FH team

    Darlow Areola

    Stones Maguire Saiss Mitchell Davies

    KDB Bruno Son ESR Gundogan

    Kane Lacazette Wood

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    The end of BB19?

    Looks like Southampton & Leeds won't get a Double Gameweek in GW19 if Southampton/Shrewsbury could face Arsenal/Leicester/Man Utd/Spurs (and possibly Man City) in the 4th or 5th Round of the FA Cup.

    1. Camzy

      Let's see what the draw brings!

      1. G-Whizz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Indeed!

      2. G-Whizz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Would you Adam 'n Eve it?

        Southampton/Shrewsbury v Arsenal...

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 18 days ago

      He also says there's a ~60% chance in his estimation that they do get a DGW... https://twitter.com/BenCrellin/status/1348702522769362947

      Draw is in less than a hour IIRC so we'll figure it out soon.

      1. G-Whizz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Southampton/Shrewsbury face Arsenal in the 4th round. This means Southampton has to postpone their fixture v Leeds in #DGW19 so they can play the game vs. Shrewsbury.

        Leeds and Southampton will NOT have 2 games in GW19 from what I can see but I'll wait for confirmation...

    3. Niho992
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I hope game will be postponed even i have 5 players from that game.

    4. Ibralicious
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Is there going to be a guaranteed loaded DGW in the future, and one that would warrant the BB more than a favorable TC though?

    5. tuvok
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Chorley/Wolves v Southampton/Shrewsbury or Arsenal
      So....?

      1. tuvok
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I copied & pasted from BBC minute by minute and I think it should be:
        Sot/Shrew vs Arsenal
        Which according to the Crellin knowhow above that will likely mean DGW is indeed off for Leeds & Sot?

  14. Van der Faart

    FH draft

    Darlow

    De Gea
    Dier, Tierney, Dias, Cancelo

    1. royals forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nice G2G

  16. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Think I need to stop working early tomorrow to finnish my wildcard team.

    1. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Good call Shefki. Same here but FH. Shame that there is lots of work to do.

  17. Vlad

    Wtf is this with no Spurs ?

  18. Nice to Finally Michu
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Thoughts on this for Free Hit?

    A) Ramsdale Lascelles Sterling
    B) Leno Stones Rashford

    I just feel so much better having Sterling than Rashford

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      But does he start?

    2. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Sterling fit you think?

    3. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I think he's fit yeah

  19. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 10 Years

    Antonio starts

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      60min run out without injury would be just perfect

  20. aleksaa2
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    West Ham United 1️⃣1️⃣: Randolph, Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Johnson, Noble, Rice, Yarmolenko, Benrahma, Lanzini, Antonio

  21. LewanGOALski
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    FH G2G? 🙂

    Leno
    Dias - Stones - Dier
    KDB - Bruno - Rashford - Son - Saka
    Kane - Lacazette

    Brewster - Mitchell - meh

  22. Garth Marenghi
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Is Reguilon still as attacking as he was in the beginning of the season?

  23. Marcin the Pole
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Thoughts on this FH draft?

    Leno
    Stones Cancelo Dier
    KDB Bruno Auba Saka Neto
    Kane Martial

    Bench is fodder.

    Cheers!

  24. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 10 Years

    is it safe to activate fh or do it tomorrow? afraid i may forget tomorrow

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Think I'll do mine tonight. Fairly safe now surely.

    2. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Did it today. One/two games still might cancelled but something dramatic has to happen for the entire GW to be cancelled.

  25. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Antonio punt, here we go

  26. Baros Boy
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    What’s the deal with Saka? Everyone seems to have him in

    1. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Cheap, in form and has a fixture.

  27. el polako
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    West Ham made an offer for Milik, it would be a great singing if they can pull it off.

  28. Ibralicious
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Davies at 4.6 worth the risk to save funds over Dier at 5.1 in FH drafts?

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Don't think so

    2. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Will he start?

    3. Van der Faart
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      No

    4. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Risk isnt the right term. Theres a lower chance he doesnt play than he does

      1. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Right, so there is a chance he doesn't play = risk?

        1. Alisson WondHaaland
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Reguilon almost certainly plays imo

      2. Alisson WondHaaland
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Sorry wrongly worded, higher chance he doesnt play than does

  29. Alisson WondHaaland
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Punt XI

    Guaita
    Aurier Walker Fernandez
    Auba Zaha Sterling (C) Foden
    Jesus Martial Tosun

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Love it. Maybe Sanchez (Bri), Bogle, Robinson, Eze on the bench? No space for McGoldrick?

  30. Ha.
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    DCL > Antonio for (-4)? Effectively pays for itself, doesn’t it?

    1. Ha.
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I can only apologise

    2. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Pretty much as you'd back him to get returns but if he doesn't he could easily get 2,1 and not pay for himself
