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.

    So Leeds don't have 2 games in ge19 anymore or?

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

      Probably not.

    2. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      No but looks like Southampton do!?

      1. George Agdgdgwngo
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Why what’s happening?

      2. HashAttack
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Thought that its Leeds v Southampton cancelled so that Southampton can play Shrewsbury

  2. zotter

    More simple question. If I have already hit the FH button. Can I over ride this with a WC?

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

      Nope

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Guy pls....what are the changes in GW 19? I was out

    1. Breezyy
      • 2 Years

      This

  4. Jon Walter's Hatty

    Crouchy may as well just carry on drawing to the final...

    1. diesel001
      • 4 Years

      Would be helpful for fixture planning tbh.

  5. youzef

    Free hit team:
    Steffen
    Tierney Cancelo Shaw
    Neto KDB Fernandes Son
    Lacazette Wilson Kane (C)
    Bench: Smith Rowe and 3 non playing players.

    Good to go?

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

      Isn't Ederson back now?

    2. umerlfc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Steffen won't start

    3. ivantys
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Steffen? Edersen's back.

    4. cutch
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      On a Free Hit:

      A) Zaha + Gündogan
      B) Saka + Sterling

      1) Bellerín
      2) Tierney
      3) AWB

      Cheers!

      Thoughts on this FH team? Not much of a bench so thinking of downgrading Martial to Wilson. Thoughts appreciated.

      Darlow
      Cancelo Dias Tierney
      Saka KDB Bruno Son
      Laca Kane Martial

    7. Differentiator
      • 5 Years

      RMFHT please

      Guaita - 4.0
      Cancelo - Reguilon - 3.9 - Maguire - 3.9
      KDB - Rashford - Neto - Fernandes - Son
      Wilson - 4.4 - Kane

    8. diesel001

      Ben Crellin stopped tweeting after Southampton drew Arsenal in the 4th Round. LOL. GW16 WC, GW18 FH, GW19 BB in tatters.

    9. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Son Kane Raphinha Bamford DCL my players without a DGW19

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

        Son, Kane still great picks. 1ft needed

    10. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      It’s almost impossible to keep up with all these changes!

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        On a WC and think I have now done every possible player combination. I am mentally shot.

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

        Yeh I have no clue at this stage. At least, on a FH for 18, I can’t worry myself about 19 and what I have to do now!

    11. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      On WC this week...might now sell Soucek and my Leeds boys, then get Soucek (along with Mo) back on an FH in 19.

      1. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Always had FH19 as an option given those Pool and WHU fixtures, but Leeds double disappearing makes it seem positively sensible.

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

          Agreed. If Villa vs Everton gets called off that'll most likely be the final straw for me.

    12. CRO KLOPP
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Anyone wants to WC now instead FH?

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

        If I could cancel my wildcard I would and play fh instead

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

          Why?

    13. Garam MOSALAH
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      What will you do ?

      A) -4 hit with 7 players in GW18
      B) FH

      1. Finding Timo
          3 months, 3 days ago

          I did -4 to get 7 so I could save my FH but who knows !!

      2. ivantys
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Biggest losers are those who have like 4 players in 18 and loads of Saints+Leeds players.

            Rather go Holding from Arsenal def. Or upgrade to Tierney?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years

              Who for though?

                • 4 Years
                3 months, 3 days ago

                Stones? If Arsenal gets a CS Leno will get 6 points. So will Holding at 4.5.

          A) Saka in 3-4-3
          B) Tierney in 4-3-3

          Basically people who got in Leeds and Southampton players for DGW19 are sweating hoping that Southampton / Shrewsbury 3rd Round FA Cup tie does not moved to DGW19 and Southampton / Leeds is postponed. i.e. Southampton and Leeds are left with only one game in DGW19.

          1. Finding Timo

                So somebody long term
                Thinkin Jesus but not confident...but he does have 3 great fixtures in next 2 gameweeks

            Now to plan whether WC18/FH19 is better than FH18/No chip 19.

            This is why I wasted no time building drafts up to now 🙂

            1. Differentiator

              FH18, WC19.

              Exactly. I've been telling people to wait to play any chips until tonight at the earliest. But get so much crap here for saying that. When Fabio Borges says he hasn't played his chips yet for GW18, the people on here are lauding him for his foresight.

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

                Of course, he's one of the best players in the world and you're a random FFS user.

            3. Salarrivederci
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 3 days ago

              WC18 and no chip/TC19 is the best imo.
              Save FH for BGW29, and use your FT's after GW19 to build for a BB in GW26

                • 6 Years
                3 months, 3 days ago

                An effective BB in 26 won't be easy without the WC in 25, and trying to 'build' your way there imo.

            I need your help. I made 3 transfers ( -8 points) and i just discovered that aston villa is not playing this gameweek (I have grealish and Mings). If i use free hit or wildcard, is the -8 cancelled?
