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.

        I wouldn’t put money on us. But hopefully

            Yeah but not sure if you would want so many games for them lol.

          Brentford vs. Leicester could be tricky.

        RMFHT please (RP)

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

          Can I be honest? Guiata needs to go. Palace are haemorrhaging goals. No city defence is Crazy and only one city player more so. Wolves don’t have a striker. Will they score lots of goals against Everton? Unlikely. I would get foden or gundogan.

        Saka-Rashford-Bruyne-Fernandes-Son

      8. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Free Hit, or Free Hit, Ay there's the point,
        No bench, no keeper, is that all? Aye all:
        No, to -4, -8, to captain, postponement there it goes,
        For in that dream of losing mini leagues, we hope, a circuit break,
        And borne before an everlasting judge, the rate my team,
        From whence no manager ever returned, until next season,
        The undiscovered haul at whose sight
        The smug emoji smile, and the accursed damn'd.
        But for this, the joyful hope of this,
        Who'd bear the scorns and flattery of the fantasy world,
        Scorned by the pro pundit, who cursed of the casual?
        The manager being oppressed, the XG’s wrong'd,
        The taste of red arrow, or rage transfers,
        And thousand more calamities, the eye, the test,
        To click and sweat under this weary FPL,
        When that he may his full Spurs trio make,
        With a bare nine, who would this endure, with caveat,
        But for a hope of something after hits?
        Which puzzles the brain, and doth confound underlying sense,
        Which makes us rather bear those rushed deadlines we have,
        Than fly to others that we know not of, punts,
        Aye that, O this conscience makes cowards of us all,
        FPL in thy team news, be all my hits remembered

          Excellent , takes a few reads of course

      9. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        All set ladies & gents?

        DDG
        Dias Dier Tierney
        KDB(C) Rashford Bruno Son Saka
        Kane Wilson

        Forster Brewster Mitchell Kilman

        1. Garth Marenghi
          • 4 Years

          Why Dias over cancelo?

          1. Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            No particular reason. Is Cancelo more nailed?

            1. Garth Marenghi
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 1 day ago

              Equally nailed, cancelo just more attacking

          Do you actually believe that's a fix?

      11. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Salah, Adams, McCarthy to Kdb, Antonio, Fabianski (-8) is definitely on the cards for next week

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years

          One week at a time, one week.

        Evening all!!! On WC, best way to free up funds to get DDG in place of Martinez.....
        A- Dias to Stones
        B- AWB to Lindelof
        C- Cresswell to Coufal
        D- Saka to Smith-Rowe
        Many thanks !!

        Would be foolish to sell bamford. So much value tied in him and he's a bargain pick

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Plenty of goals still possible vs. Brighton.

        2. jesus jesus

          Not about value atm i believe - its getting 2 teams out for next 2 weeks

        Need Ben to start telling us what BGW29 will most likely look like, need to decide on FH date!

      15. Releasebreaks

        Any news if Ederson is coming back for DGW? Steffen looks cheap 4.4 as city cover.

        1. Syd.
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Yes he will be back for the double

      16. circusmonkey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 1 day ago

        Was all set on keeping the free hit but with DCL and Grealish out, I only have 4 I want to play and 2 ponies.

        What about this FH?
        Leno
        Dias, Cancelo, Dier, Bellerin
        KDB, Bruno, Son, Saka
        Kane, Wilson
        Bench: Neto, Yedlin, McGoldrick

        Yeah pretty standard I know. Any love for Martial instead of Wilson? Could find the money by weakening bench.

      17. Syd.

        Man City with 2 away games

        we never get a break

          Don’t worry plenty of rest for these easy cup games against minnows

        2. Joker91

          What about the game two days ago?

      18. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        How about this FH?
        Trying with 4-5-1 for a change...

        Lloris
        Cancelo Tierney Shaw Saiss
        KdB Bruno Rash Son Saka
        Kane(C)

          What to do with Leeds players now?

          That was my team on a WC, with 9 players able to play in BGW18 and 11 players with two games in DGW19..

          Meslier / Leno
          Stones / Dias / Creswell / Dallas / Holding
          Salah / KDB / Bruno / Maddison / Smith-Rowe
          Kane (Vardy DGW19) / Bamford / Brewster

        • Syd.

          Planning

          ehh

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          To be fair though, Brighton at home is still a great fixture for Leeds. Bench boost an option.

          Anyone else winging it with 6 players? I'd rather use a FH in GW19 and load up on DGWers.

          My six:

          Holding Clark
          KDB Bruno Son
          Kane

          Beginning to think it may be worth getting Lloris in for a -4 this week
