Pro Pundit Teams

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.

    Hi

    Your help would be appreciated please

    Please fill the final two gaps of my FH team (DF/MF) up to 10m

    Darlow Areola

    Stones Maguire Saiss Mitchell xxxxxxx

    KDB Bruno Son ESR xxxxxxx

    Kane Lacazette Wood

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Jon Snow
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Could go Spurs defender and Foden/Gundogan?

      1. Jon Snow
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        my bad my maths sucks, although if its FH you don't need all that money on the bench. So fodder mid and Spurs Def, or fodder def and Foden/Gundogan

    2. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Douglas+foden/Neto

  2. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Worth the 0.8 for Cancelo over stones?

    Already own Dias

    1. jomikijiq
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      yes

    2. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      This week, yes.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 19 days ago

        On wc, so moving forward as well

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      I'd go Cancelo and Stones.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Which 2 on wc?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          9 months, 19 days ago

          Probably still Cancelo - Stones.

    4. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Stone the most likely to start against Brighton. Cancelo is likely the better long term pick.

    5. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      I've got both. Would rather have Dias than stones but need the cash for Kane

  3. SomeoneKnows
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Is it time to get rid of DCL? If so then who ia the best replacement?

    A) Lacazette
    B) Wilson
    C) Martial
    D) Other suggestions

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      It was 3-4 weeks ago.

      FH only? Laca.

      1. SomeoneKnows
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Not free hit, permanent transfer

    2. Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Antonio for gw 😉

      1. Pukkipartyy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Gw19

  4. Crunchie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    A bit light in defence.

    First FH go.

    DDG (Forster)
    Dier, Saiss, Stones (Mitchell, Kilman)
    KDB, Bruno, Son, Rashford, Saka
    Kane, Laca (Davis)

    Will probably upgrade defence.

    1. Nolberto Solano
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      I am also trying to make that front 7 fit. Maybe downgrade Saka to Smith-Rowe, then upgrade the DEF?

      1. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah in my thoughts, thanks. Saka against Mitchell/Eze , as a Palace fan Schlupp would have started this one I think

    2. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Ditch Laca, he has a low ceiling anyway

      1. doher.ty
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 19 days ago

        4 goals in 3 gws (2 starts) doesn't seem that low to me. 2 more than Rash during that time.

  5. Sterling Malory
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    5 big hitters too many?

    Darlow
    Saiss Lindelof Stones
    KDB Son Bruno Sterling ESR
    Kane Wilson

    Fodder Brewster Mitchell Bernardo

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Nice if Serling starts

    2. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah I would try to upgrade ESR to Saka at least.

      1. doher.ty
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Doesn't have the $$$ - would need to downgrade a defender or two to get enough to make that move.

        1. ivantys
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 19 days ago

          Saiss to Holding, Brewster to Davis should be enough and maybe Mitchell to Douglas. The benched players are getting like 1-2 points anyway not needed.

      2. Sterling Malory
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        I think ESR will match Saka points

        1. ivantys
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 19 days ago

          I prefer to go safe, the bench isn't needed. ESR might not start.

  6. Nolberto Solano
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Rate My FH Team:

    Leno

    Cancelo - Stones - Dier

    KdB - Bruno - Son - Rash - Smith Rowe

    Kane- Laca

    Bench: FODDER

  7. Andre_The_Giant
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Anyone taking a punt on Foden?

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Good FH option.

    2. Releasebreaks
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      no.. he is pep-roulette

    3. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Thought about it but too worried about gametime. Saka/Neto are preferred.

  8. Mr Bird
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Current FH

    Darlow
    Cancelo Stones Tierney Dier
    KDB Fernandes Son ****
    Kane Wilson ****

    Last spot?
    A) Rashford (4-4-2)
    B) Lacazette (4-3-3)

    1. Jon Snow
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      I like Rashford, got a solid away record

      1. Mr Bird
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        I’m an Arsenal fan so i’ve watched Laca frustrate too many times but he’s in a decent enough run for a one week punt. Maybe I should just go with my gut and get Rash.

    2. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Same question here. Really difficult since both Burnley and Palace can give great defensive performances.

      1. Mr Bird
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Yep. This season has been so unpredictable it’s just guessing at this point.

  9. BobbyDoesNotLook
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Is it relatively safe to finally activate the fh?

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Never.

      1. BobbyDoesNotLook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Relatively 😉 I guess it is now as good as it gets since we got the wanted Spurs & Villa news.

        1. Weak Become Heros
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 19 days ago

          🙂 go for it pal.

  10. Pukkipartyy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Are freehit tranfers included in example KDBs tranfers ins?

    Wondering what is going to happen for hes price when FH teams resets for gw19.

    1. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Not counted, ESR had 5.1% transfers in and his ownership atill at 2

  11. Jon Snow
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on this FH? Got exact funds so will have to move before tonight

    De Gea
    Dias, Stones, Tierney, Dier
    Bruno, Rashford, KdB, Son, Saka
    Kane

    4.0, Mitchell, fodder, fodder

    1. Corona is not good 4 U
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Lacazette can hurt you.

      1. Jon Snow
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Unfortunately can't fit him in unless I drop Kane or the midfield. Hoping Tierney and Saka are good enough cover

      2. doher.ty
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Like most FH here it's Rash or Laca - it's a 50/50 imo just banking on both or the one you have to perform.

  12. Corona is not good 4 U
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Is this FH team good to go?

    Lloris (Walton)
    Stones, Dias, Wan-Bissaka (Kilman) (Mitchell)
    De Bruyne, Fernandes, Son, Saka (Burke)
    Kane, Lacazette, Wilson

    Thank you!

    1. Jon Snow
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      I like it, g2g

  13. Alisson WondHaaland
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    If you were to punt on 1 City attacker other than kDB, who do you think is the most nailed?

    A) Foden
    B) Gundogan
    C) Torres
    D) Mahrez
    E) Silva
    F) Jesus
    G) Aguero
    H) Sterling

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      H

    2. jayjay2411
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Jesus as Kun is defo out, but you can't deny Gundogans value

      1. Alisson WondHaaland
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        For sure

      2. jayjay2411
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        He's self isolating

    3. Lazaretti
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      H but he might be injured

    4. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      H

    5. Nolberto Solano
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      B - full rest at the weekend and scored 3 in last 4 league games

    6. jomikijiq
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Jesus easily

    7. aleksaa2
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Wait for the press conference tomorrow. I really think Sterling is g2g, and Pep's words "not fit enough" for FA Cup and Birmingham is just don't give a damn about it.

      1. Alisson WondHaaland
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        I see. 11.4 is a bit of a stretch tho tbh

    8. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Says it all that the list is that long

    9. Pukki Party

      H

  14. jayjay2411
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    I'm struggling to decide whether I go 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 on a FH,
    Majority of my team is set but would you guys go either;

    A) Wilson, Stones
    B) Neto, Cancelo

    Please help

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      A for me. Everton will keep it tight v Wolves

      1. jayjay2411
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Thankyou, I know that's the sensible option just bugging me 3 of Everton back 4 & Gomes played 120 mins at weekend, but I think I'm just overthinking it, will probably go Wilson & Stones

        1. Bucket Man
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 19 days ago

          Probably are. Best of luck.

  15. wildnothing
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Would you FH this team?

    Cancelo Taylor* Holding
    Fernandes KDB

    *Taylor might be injured

    Martinez
    Macey
    Alioski
    Coufal
    Grealish
    Soucek
    Salah
    Vardy
    Bamford
    Adams

    1. Pukkipartyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      FH for sure... 😀

    2. Releasebreaks
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      yes do it

  16. Bucket Man
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Worth a -4 to get to this. Save the FH

    Cancelo, Saiss, Holding
    Bruno, Son, Saka
    Kane, Brewster

    1. Bluejays and Horseplay
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Risky taking a hits to put out a team of just 8 players, likely 7 starters (Brewster far from certain to, even less to return). Also 6 of those only play once in DGW19.

  17. Bluejays and Horseplay
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on these two combos in FH please:
    1. Tierney and Foden (double Arsenal defence, double City attack) OR
    2. Dias and Saka (double Man City defence double Arsenal attack)

    *FYI Maguire is probably third defender, with Leno/Darlow in goal.

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      2. Foden rotation risk.

      1. Bluejays and Horseplay
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Agree it's definitely risky. I'm leaning towards 2.

    2. jayjay2411
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Not interested in Gundogan?

      1. Bluejays and Horseplay
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Considered it, but only slightly less rotation risk than Foden and I think he or Saka have higher ceiling as one-week punts.

  18. Jack Burton
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Raphina to saka minus 4 was gonna keep for double game week no with news of possible postponement is it worth getting shot of him thanks in advance

  19. King Kohli
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Any news on Anguissa?

    He was not in Fulhams FA cup squad too

  20. Original - Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Safe enough to activate the Free Chip tonight?

  21. baines is god
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Cavani for this gameweek?

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Surely won't play ahead of Martial?

      1. The Train Driver
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 19 days ago

        Why wouldn't he? Been much better than Martial in that role.

  22. Lindelol
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Early WC draft
    DDG* Meslier
    Dias* - Cancelo* - WanB* - Dallas - Coufal
    Bruno* - KDB* - Son* - Raphina - Smith Rowe*
    Kane* - Bamford - Wilson*

    * GW 18 players
    Plan is to have 10 players for 18
    Next GW
    Kane + Son to Ings + Salah and Bench Boost.

    Yes or No???
    Please give your suggestions.

    1. Lindelol
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      No meslier though. Fodder GK instead

  23. BW25
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Loris
    Mari Kilman Cancelo
    KDB Son Fernandes Saka
    Kane

    Enough for GW18?

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Definetly for me. I’m debating a -4 for 8 with Brewster and no KDB

    2. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah . Kilman might not start though.

    3. BW25
      9 months, 19 days ago

      That is taking a hit.

  24. Alisson WondHaaland
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    My team value is a bit low so have to sacrifice somewhere

    Best Free hit option?

    A) Leno, Holding, Stones, Rashford
    B) DDG, Tierney, Cancelo, Zaha

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      A

  25. mr messi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    How’s this

    Leno
    Stones Cancelo Saïss (Michell fodder)
    KDB Rashford Son Bruno Smith Rowe
    Kane Lacca (Brewster)

    Have exact money so would need to do this tonight.

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      V template but solid.

  26. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Not much cheap options for bb19 team if Leeds-Southampton is moved to another gw

    1. Lindelol
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      is this a possibility?

    2. HaveYassineChikhaoui
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Will completely change the outlook on DGW19, went from potentially having 15 to now 10/11 depending on injuries/positive tests of Covid etc. Not worth bench boosting unless you have 13DGW+ (or v good SGW options).

  27. FFFoxy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    A) Laca
    B) Martial

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      B

  28. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    Who to partner with Stones on WC:

    A) Dias
    B) Cancelo

    1. jimmy.floyd
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      B

  29. MoSalad
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    WC Draft for 18 this is about as far as I got:

    Areola (Johnstone)
    Tierney, Cancelo, Stones, AWB (Coufal)
    KDB, Fernandes, Rashford, ESR (Salah)
    BDR, Wilson (BamBam)

    Then for 19 I'll do Tierney to Cresswell and Wilson to Antonio and most likely still BB with at least 14 DGWs and maybe 13 if Leeds game does end up getting moved.

    Thoughts please?

  30. FFFoxy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 19 days ago

    A) Foden
    B) C.Wilson?

    1. Pad Randa (The OG)
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 19 days ago

      Wilson, for me, though I did consider Foden for a minute.
