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.

    Think I've finally cracked my FH team (if Pep clears Sterling in the presser):

    Leno
    Cancelo - Tierney - AWB
    KDB - Sterling - Bruno - Son - Saka
    Kane - Wilson

    (Steer) (Mitchell - Davis - Douglas)

    How’s my free hit looking? Not comfortable with 451, but I like it:

    Lloris
    Cancelo, AWB, Tierney, Stones
    KDB, Bruno, Son, Rashford, Saka
    Kane (C)

    4.0; Brewster, Mitchell, 4.3

      I like it. Very good team and you solved my problems with that 4-5-1 😉 GL.

    FH19 looks a lot better now, hmm.

    1. Lindelol
      • 2 Years

      1. HollywoodXI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 3 days ago

        Same. Happier now with the WC.

      2. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Edging closer by the minute myself - but alternative still to ride out with 8 players

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Agreed. Much much better. Almost essential haha

  6. Bram
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    So 3 all EPL ties in the 4th round with Man Utd v Liverpool clearly the pick of the round

  7. panda07
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Which one would you choose?

    A) Stones & Lloris
    B) DDG & Dias

    1. Baros Boy
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      B

    2. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Very tough. A just on cs odds

  8. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Already have Bruno and Saka, pick a fwd:
    A) Richarlison (scored 4 goals in 4 games against Wolves. And might be on pens)
    B) Martial (i see him as a good CF pick against BUR defense)
    C) Lacazette (stats, form and playing CRY)

    1. Davros
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Could cavani take martial mins?

      1. KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        yes that's why I'm not sure abt him at all

  9. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Time to try how it feels owning Foden? - could this go through gw18 and then maybe use the wildcard next gameweek?

    a. Robertson + Grealish -> Cancelo + Foden
    b. get someone else than Foden (8.9 million to use but would like to save around 2 million to get Ings for Wilson next gw if I don't use the wildcard)

    (Martínez)
    Lowton, Taylor, (Robertson)
    Son, Burke, Fernandes, (Grealish)
    Wilson , Kane, (Bamford)

    Button, Salah, Coufal, Douglas
    2 free transfer, 0.1 million in the bank, all chips available

  10. Rhodes your boat
    • 4 Years

    What should I do? Willing to take a hit to field 8 this week, 1FT 0.1itb, strujik balbuena to Mitchell Clark -4??

    Stones holding
    Kdb Bruno son
    Kane

    Martinez Forster kwp balbuena strujik salah soucek bamford davis

  11. Baros Boy
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Saka or ESR?

    And why?

    Personally I’ve not been inspired by Saka in the past...although I know he is on some form. ESR seems mega cheap but I’m not sure how nailed...at £4.4m in the number 10 role at arsenal seems mental!

    Thank you

  12. Tonyawesome69 FHXX

    So either SOU gets a bye or Leeds and SOU games rearranged out of 19?

  13. fedolefan
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 3 days ago

    Delighted if Leeds/Sou doesn't go ahead in GW19 as I don't own anyone besides Adams whom I'm transferring out for Wilson this week.

    1. ivantys
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Me too, only have Bamford and KWP and it's not like KWP would keep any CS anyway.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 3 days ago

      If Villa vs Everton is called off I'll have 7 SGW players next week lmao, definitely FH material that

    3. Ian Davis
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      DCL worth a -4 for anyone?

      1. Herman Toothrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Hamstring injury

      2. dark91
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Yes if you don't have any other good sub

    4. Obi Wan Elokobi
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      I’m on wildcard and literally have no idea what to do now. There’s no way I can bench boost surely.

      1. Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        yes no double for leeds has become a problem now

      2. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Agreed. Makes it much harder

    5. Herman Toothrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      So Southampton play this GW based on the Arsenal draw?

      1. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Nope. Their game against Leeds is likely to be moved to a future GW after GW19.

    6. FredrikH
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Captain Kane KDB or Bruno?

      1. Z
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Son or Kane?

        1. Z
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Oh...you wrote Kane..sry. Have the same problem

    7. ZoumasBloomers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Dallas, Bamford, Raphinha, KWP, Adams.

      Kill me.

      1. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Same. But don't kill me

      2. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Yep all of them in my GW19 team currently.... 🙁

    8. ivantys
        3 months, 3 days ago

        What's the rationale for postponing the fixture if they face those 5 teams? Because those 5 teams' fixtures are harder to postpone as compared to the rest?

      • Z
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        When is Spurs game changed?

      • Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Fairly set on this for my FH:

        Leno
        Cancelo, Maguire, Dias
        Saka, Rashford, De Bruyne, Fernandes, Neto
        Kane, Lacazette

        Subs: Button, Saiss, Brewster, Mitchell

        What do we reckon?

      • Corona is not good 4 U
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Why is Wilson in so few FH teams? He's responsible for penalties, Sheffield is last and Wilson has played consistently well this season. Thanks!

          1. Obi Wan Elokobi
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            He’s potentially injured

            1. Lindelol
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 3 days ago

              really???

            • 5 Years

              • 9 Years
              3 months, 3 days ago

              Triple Leeds including Rodrigo

        • diesel001
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          LOL. That Leeds hoarding for a DGW looks to have flopped hard now.

          1. Yes Ndidi
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 3 days ago

            No need for a LOL, is there? Especially one in caps.

        • Timothy
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Wilson fit to play or no?

          1. FFFoxy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            I know he wasn’t In fa cup squad but I haven’t heard anything on his fitness. I assumed he was just rested, have we had any news on him over the last week?

        • Bubbles1985
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          How does this look for GW18 with one hit?

          Martinez
          Cancelo Mitchell
          KDB(vc) Bruno Son(c) Sterling
          Brewster DCL Wilson

          Rest of squad
          Forster, Coufal, Soucek, KWP, Ayling

          I then plan a single hit for GW19
          Sterling and Wilson > Salah and Bamford
          To leave 10 DGWers and then play TC on Salah or KDB

          Thoughts on that?

        • zotter
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Hang on. So does that draw mean Saints and Leeds likely out of double??

          So throws my bench boost in bin

          I currently have (once FH team reverses )

          - no city
          - two villa
          - doubtful Dcl
          - two Leeds
          - Kwp

          Time to switch that FH to Wc?

          Can you actually do that?
