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.

      A or C

      KDB - might be false 9 again and Brighton missing a few players including Bissouma

    4. Tonyawesome69 FH36

      KDB for me. Kane (vc)

    5. Karan14

      I'm on KDB for now.

    Could really use some help here guys...
    Not freehitting.
    1FT 4.0ITB

    Martinez*(no game)
    Dias Dier Holding Keane
    Son Bruno Saka Salah*(no game)
    Kane DCL*(injured)

    Steer; Burke Brewster Dunne

    So I’ll need to make at least 2-3 transfers. Questions are:
    - Get salah out?
    - Keep Salah, get DCL + Burke/Brewster out?
    - What Man City assets except for KDB are nailed? Mahrez/Foden/Bernardo
    - Is it worth getting Steer out for a cheap playing GK so I make it a full starting 11?

    1. Mr Wolf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      What about Salah and dcl out for kdb and lacazette?

  3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    Maguire+Gundogan or Stones+Saka?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      SAS

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      B

  4. OptimusBlack
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    On FH Which is better
    A- Leno + AWB + Rashford +Saka + (Brewster ) 3-5-2
    B - Darlow + Dier + Gündogan + Laca (Saka) 3-4-3

    1. OptimusBlack
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Or maybe Degea instead of Darlow

    2. RealSocialDads
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      A

  5. Bruno Commando
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    On a FH and not sure which pair of midfielders I should go with.

    1) Son + Neto
    2) Rashford + Saka

    Leno
    Stones Dias AWB
    Bruno KDB _____ _____
    Kane Wilson Laca

    Subs: Steer Mitchell Smith-Rowe Douglas

    1. OptimusBlack
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Son + Saka

      1. Bruno Commando
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Take out Wilson? Currently on a 3-4-3..

        1. OptimusBlack
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          No Keep him and play 3-4-3

          1. Bruno Commando
            • 6 Years

            Ah I see. Thanks mate.

  6. Totalfootball

    Shaw likely to play this week?

    1. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 27 days ago

      I'm risking it

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Telles a risk

    3. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Not sure. Would try and get AWB/Maguire.

  7. DAZZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    @Zophar. In regards to Darlow. Im sure Bruce said he may play Dubravka against SHU. I’d steer clear of Newcastle keepers.

  8. Karan14

    Thoughts on this FH team?

    Lloris
    Cancelo Stones Maguire Tierney
    KDB Bruno Son Rashford Saka
    Kane

    Can do something like Rashford & Maguire to Laca & Wilson or Rashford & Stones to Laca & Foden.

    But really not sure about it as Foden might not start and there are some injury doubts surrounding Wilson.

    1. Mr Wolf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Very solid, keep Rashford

    Got 0FT with this... could do DCL to someone for -4. What you recon, FH or go with this?

    Lowton - Dias - Stones
    Fernandes - KDB - Son - Stephens
    Kane

    1. Mr Wolf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      -4 > fh

  10. 420king
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    Need to decide whether I'm FHing in 19 or not, before I do my next move. If I don't FH I can have this team for -4:

    MARTINEZ
    STONES AWB dier
    SALAH KDB BRUNO GREALISH
    ANTONIO BAMFORD kane
    (CAPS=DGW)

    Is this team good enough for DGW19 or should I play my FH instead?

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      It is good enough for DGW19

      1. 420king
        • 6 Years

        Thanks.

    2. Mr Wolf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Can you take Grealish out?

      1. 420king
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        You mean because of the covid situation? I already need to replace DCL and buy Salah :/

  11. jdogg
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    Am i mental considering just going with
    Stones
    Bruno kdb son
    Kane

    Taylor* dcl*(you never know)

    Instead of a free hit?x

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Yes

    2. Mr. Funny Name
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Play the free hit

  12. Coys96
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    Predict Pep:

    Ederson
    Walker Stones Dias Cancelo
    Rodri Gundogan
    B.Silva KDB Foden
    Jesus

    If Sterling is fine and Aguero can play I think they both start, however.

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      That, but Sterling in for Jesus.

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      This is the reason why I like double City def on Free Hit.

    3. ivantys
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Ederson
        Walker Stones Dias Cancelo
        Rodri Gundo
        Mahrez KDB Sterling
        Jesus

      • Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Ederson
        Cancelo - Dias - Stones - Zinchenko
        Rodri - Gundo
        Mahrez - Bilva - Foden

      DCL fixing! I can't get Laca with Tierney...

      or

      Tierney Saiss Gundogan 3-5-2

      Dias or Foden on a FH?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Foden. It's a FH. Roll the dice.

    6. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      FH GW18

      A. Lloris & Maguire & Tierney
      B. DDG & Dier & Wilson

      Which one will you choose?

    7. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Pick two to play on a FH

      A) Foden
      B) Saka
      C) Wilson

      1. Boss Hogg
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        a and c

      2. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        D) Dias (alongside Cancelo)

    8. Railwayman
      • 8 Years

      Is Lacazette worth a hit, so I could play 7 players this week ?

    9. Canadian Football
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Hey Lads,

      what's the consensus? Press FH button before price changes tonight? Or still wait until tomorrow?

      1. Mattymo23
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Unsure- I might pull the trigger tonight before I go to bed

    10. Muscout
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Anyone taking a punt on Aguero with FH? How many mins is he likely to play

      1. Canadian Football
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        im TRYING to it him in.

        1. Canadian Football
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          fit

      2. 420king

        Isn't he self isolating?

    11. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Safe to press FH button now?
      Have exact funds for my perfect team and Wilson,KDB are rising tonight...

      1. Fantabulous KdB
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        yes

      2. Canadian Football
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        i think im going to, i have to play FH anyway. I think the only reason to keep it is the risk of the entire GW being cancelled or the season put on pause. You guys in the UK might have more intel on this.

        It's always best to activate it late as not to get tripped up. But if YOU want to activate it now, you do that.

    12. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      On FH. Which option would you prefer to finalize it?
      A) Lacazette, Gundogan first sub (or Saka)
      B) Rashford, Davis fodder (Mitchell first sub)
      C) other ideas
      Also, (if I go B) Stones to get City triple, or stick w/ Dier to spread coverage?

      DDG (4.0)
      Cancelo Tierney Dier (Mitchell 3.9)
      KDB(c) Bruno Son Saka ___
      Kane ___ Wilson

      Thanks 🙂

    13. Fantabulous KdB
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Laca or Jesus as 1 week punt?

      1. Mr Wolf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Jesus can be a massive differential

    14. Jon Snow
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      FH guys are you leaving a playing sub on the bench? Or going all out risky with complete fodder?

      1. Top Lad Dakes. - all chips …
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        I’ll have Mitchell and probably one other playing sub

      2. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Saiss first bench guy, rest fodder

      1. Fantabulous KdB
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        I think Jesus start, speaking of which, play Jesus or Laca on FH?

      2. DA Minnion (In Bielsa we tr…
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        He's isolating.

      3. MOTHRA
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Aguero is out for at least the next two matches.

    16. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Which combo on a FH

      A) Son + Foden
      B) Son + Dias (double city defence)
      C) Sterling + Saka

    17. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      why is the change in spurs opposition making people have Son and Kane in their FH teams, where before the community vibes were to have just one?

      Fulham last four games have conceded the 2nd least shots in the box and have improved defensively, you could argue it to be as good as the villa def. I think both kane and son are great FH picks but just wondering why the change of heart when the stats look good for the Fulham D

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Fulham aren't bad, it's just that Villa were very good

        Remember, Spurs don't need to thrash them for Kane and Son to get points.

        Son G Kane A or vice versa, that's enough to do the damage

      2. Jon Snow
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        For me there isn't really anyone else at Son's price point and especially with the BGW there are no viable strikers. Therefore might as well go for both unless you really want to stack your defence

    18. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Is there any chance still that Southampton vs Leeds goes to GW18? Or no chance at all?

    19. Henrik Larsson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Not playing FH.

      Is Bissouma > Lookman worth -4?

    20. No Kane, No Gain!
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 27 days ago

      FH Teams, can't decide A or B - any input appreciated.

      Team A
      Guaita
      Dias, Cancelo, Tierney
      Bruno, KDB, Son, Saka
      Laca, Kane, Wilson

      (Steer, Neto, Yedlin, Holgate)

      Team B
      Lloris
      Dias, Cancelo, Tierney, AWB
      Bruno, KDB, Son, Saka, Rashford
      Kane

      (Steer, Brewster, Deco Reid, Mitchell)

    21. AudereESTFacere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Evening all

      The Villa game being moved and DCL being injured has hit me a little for the BGW and left me with 6 playing, I'm not quite sure where to make changes:

      I have 2FT and 1.6 itb

      Martinez* (Forster*)
      Bellerin Stones Dallas* (Balbuena* Dunne)
      KDB Son Fernandes Grealish* Bowen*
      Kane DCL* (Davis*)

      Would DCL&Bowen>Cavani&Foden/B.Silva be too risky Or would you use any chips? I have them all available.

      Thanks in advance for any assistance

      1. estheblessed
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        I had a similar team and went for the FH

        1. AudereESTFacere
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Appreciate your input, are you thinking of keeping your original team for the DGW or using the WC?

      2. Keeptrying
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        I think these are good moves! Might get the odd benching, but they have DGW afterwards so should have lots of minutes when you consider all three matches combined.

        1. AudereESTFacere
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Thanks, it's very tempting to take the risk and like you say double up the week after, keeping the FH could be very useful if there are any other postponed games later.

          Do you think Foden or B.Silva? I'm not sure whether Cavani will get the nod either but utd seem to need something else other than Martial
