How many top 10k FPL managers played their Free Hit chip for Blank Gameweek 18

Just under two-thirds of Fantasy Premier League managers ranked inside the top 10,000 played the Free Hit chip for Blank Gameweek 18.

Before Tuesday’s deadline, just 15.6% of them had pulled the trigger on a one-week-only squad.

However, as the evening’s first games kicked off, it was confirmed by LiveFPL.net that the usage of that chip after 18 Gameweeks had risen to 78.5%.

That means just under 63% of the top 10k saw Blank Gameweek 18 as the optimal time to play the Free Hit.

It is now by far the most utilised of the three non-Wildcard chips this season.

As a result, the Triple Captain and Bench Boost were largely, and expectedly, left untouched.

However, it is certainly of note that 7.6% of the top 10k played their second Wildcards, almost certainly with Double Gameweek 19 at the forefront of their planning.

After several weeks of planning, we can finally examine the players that made the Free Hit cut among the top 10k.

As you can see from the template above, the small number of matches made for a large number of heavily-owned assets.

For example, Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m), Son Heung-min (£9.8m), Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) all secured places in over 94% of top 10k Free Hit squads.

Callum Wilson (£6.6m) has already let down the 70.1% who brought him in for one week only, blanking in the 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United.

Meanwhile, over 60% chose Tyrick Mitchell (£3.9m) and João Cancelo (£5.8m) and 58% felt Kieran Tierney (£5.4m) was worth extra spend compared to Rob Holding (£4.5m).

Therefore, it is up to the relative differentials to make a difference among these managers with roughly 44% investing in John Stones (£5.0m), Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.6m).

It looks as if the goalkeeping department has the potential to make the biggest difference between these Free Hitting managers with just 26.4% ownership for the most popular shot-stopper, Hugo Lloris (£5.6m), in such squads, with Bernd Leno (26.3%) just behind him.

It is also worth considering which Free Hit assets count as relative differentials compared to the wider template top 10k template – although the 62% usage for the Free Hit will have significantly influenced that matrix of players.

Once again, it looks like the goalkeepers have the biggest power, however underwhelming that sounds. 

32.4% of this week’s top 10k came into Blank Gameweek 18 considering neither one of Leno (22.1%) or Lloris (19.2%) has a particularly large share at this level.

Bukayo Saka (£5.3m) could be something of an effective difference-maker for Free Hitters considering 53.9% of such managers decided to own him for Blank Gameweek 18 compared to 43.2% ownership for the rest of the top 10k.

Meanwhile, Rashford and Lacazette are both in roughly 44% of Free Hit squads compared to 33.5% and 32.4% of all top 10k squads.

There are some interesting decisions on display from those taking a longer-term approach with their Blank Gameweek 18 teams.

Holding is preferred to Tierney and Pedro Neto (£6.0m) has been selected by 31% of the top 10k’s Wildcard managers despite just one match in Double Gameweek 19.

And with Manchester United’s kind fixture schedule, Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.3m) was chosen by a similar share, more than the backing for Harry Maguire (£5.4m).

All eyes will be on Manchester City and Spurs on Wednesday concerning the top 10k captaincy debate.

40.8% of managers at this level backed De Bruyne with the armband, off the back of his double-digit haul against Chelsea and Brighton’s growing injury list.

The addition of Spurs’ meeting with Fulham did play a big part in the captaincy conversation in the end.

Kane mopped up 29.8% of the armband support among the top 10k, which left Fernandes with just 15.6% of it for Manchester United’s trip to Burnley.

Even though Son still sits in more top 10k squads than Kane, he is backed by fewer of them for the captaincy for the match with Fulham – just 11.2% of them choosing the South Korean as their skipper.

Raheem Sterling (£11.4m) has been conspicuous by his absence in this article thus far – mainly because he has gone under the Free Hit radar, it would seem.

Not among the most popular midfielders among Free Hitting top 10k managers, just 0.9% of managers at this level have captained him for Blank Gameweek 18.

          A or B are the only options I'd consider, being more serious.

      If you can afford it and it's not a hit, Son to Salah is a no-brainer - recent form notwithstanding

      Don't make any moves until Friday night though. This season is too unpredictable

    After FH coming back to this squad. Would you keep Mané or switch to KDB? Only .2m in bank- any other thoughts on squad welcome -was thinking-8 to BB with Son to Soucek, Mitchell to Cancelo and Brewster to Antonio but not so sure now

      After so much FH tinkering I forgot just how terrible my team was in GW17.

      I've come back to four flags, no City and an absolute mess.

      1. DA Minnion

        Time to wildcard.

        Basically why i wildcarded for 3 City, no flags and a decent bench

      TAA + DCL > Stones and Vardy for -4pts?

        Have exact cash so want to do before price changes

        Looks ok, but Vardy’s still flagged...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          ...and about to drop in price. Never mind that Stones has yet to play. Madness to make those moves tonight.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Could pay off but selling Trent before a double feels wrong.

      Still cant believe harry's goal eas disallowed. Cost us owners 9 pts that decision, ridiculous.

      1. El Lobito 10
        • 3 Years

        Modern football mate. It's a joke, slight contact and that's it

        1. Luton_Fan
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Yeh and to make matters worse the clue commentators were saying it was correctly disallowed. Supposed to be a contact sport.

          1. Luton_Fan

        Never a foul.. Such a sh*t decision from the ref. Not a Maguire owner btw, just displeased as a Utd fan.

      3. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Yeah fuming, would have been such a good night as a Maguire, rash and Bruno owner

      4. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Shaw shouldn't have been on the pitch to cross it, Harry shouldn't have kneed the defender in the back . . and probably should've been cautioned for talk back to the ref at half time.

      DDG
      Dias Cancelo Coufal Tierney
      Salah TC De Bruyne Fernandes Soucek
      Lacazette Bamford

      Martinez Wilson Smith-Rowe Yedlin

      After WC I was planning on BB but ideally would have to take a -8, if I TC I would just move son to Salah..

      I definitely would go with Ings if he had an assured double..

    • El Lobito 10

      Bruno was poor tonight. Tired.

      1. NateDogsCats
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Looked that way for a while honestly, he looks exhausted and needs a rest at some point, the FA Cup game off isn't really enough

        • Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year

          Poor performance all round really.

          So what’s the DGW template then
          Triple city? Salah KDB?

          1. aleksaa2
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Whu defence, MUN assets, Leeds if they have a double. Still too early to say.

        • Wag the Drog

          FH DGW team. Thoughts?

          Meslier
          Stones-Cancelo-Cresswell
          Salah-Bruno-KDB-Soucek
          Ings-Firmino-Bamford

            Looks good. Prefer Robertson to Firmino personally.

        • Shark Team

          Taylor gonna be ready for the next one?

          1. COVID-CASUAL
              1 month, 16 days ago

              He was "touch and go", so hoping that means good for the next game. Even with crappy fixtures, I think him playing the 2 fixtures for 3 pts but saving a transfer is worth it

          2. Jon Walter's Hatty
            • 7 Years

            Rashford owners happy with 6?

              100% he was woeful, take it and run

            2. Jon Walter's Hatty
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Relieved. He is gashford on the right. Fish out of water can’t cut in.

          4. baines is god
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            If Ings and Bamford don't have a double

            I'm going Werner Vardy and Antonio.

            Anyone else have any striker thoughts?

            Lot of negativity about Werner but I'd say he's likely to start both games. He's on penalties and still a big goal threat, even though his finishing has been poor. Lots of people falling into the logical fallacy trap of thinking because he's been on a long goalless run in the league he isn't likely to score. Chelsea have a high Xg and he is at the centre of their attacking play. Fulham and Leicester away should give him space to run into to.

            1. I Member
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              On FH? Looks like the ideal front three if Leeds and Saints don't play twice.

            2. Steve The Spud
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 16 days ago

              I have 11 for double atm but own kane and laca, considering laca to ings for the double if he has, Kane to vardy also an option

              Antonio is a bit punty for me I think

              1. Steve The Spud
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 16 days ago

                No on fh I’m talking about, Antonio worth a punt on fh

              2. baines is god
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                I'm worried he'll only get 50 minutes in the games given he's been out for so long

                1. Steve The Spud
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  Yeah and he looks sluggish, not you to speed yet and you could be stuck with him, like I say worth a go on fh but don’t think it’s for me otherwise

            3. Jon Walter's Hatty
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              On Laca Antonio Bamford. Pending in Villa situation may get Watkins for Laca allowing Salah or Mane in on upgrade. I can live with Bamford one game he is going nowhere

              1. baines is god
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                i think always take the double over the single.

                There's probably a 50-60% chance Laca blanks against Newcastle even at home and gets 2 points.

                Any dgw forward who starts both games has a higher expected return

                1. Steve The Spud
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  I’ll do Laca to watkins if they have the double and he is fit

          5. AzzaroMax99
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Bowen to Soucek for free? That would allow me to do Son to KDB for dgw19. I would wait for that second transfer thou..

            1. The Ilfordian
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              I’m thinking something similar for Son to Salah. You can bet that Son out scores the DGWers against Shef Utd

              1. AzzaroMax99
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                And what about Bowen to Soucek? Too sideway move?

                1. COVID-CASUAL
                    1 month, 16 days ago

                    If the extra cash enables Son -> Kdb it’s not too sideways

                    1. AzzaroMax99
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 16 days ago

                      Yep. Thx.

                  • The Ilfordian

                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 16 days ago

                    Yes, that on its own feels sideways but if Man City gets DGW then the extra cash for KDB seems sensible to me

              Can't believe I ended up Ramsdale in my FH18. Even more perplexed that he got me 9 pts. 😀

                Loving that I got him as my bench keeper. So close!

                  Nice call! I thought this morning Newcastle was probably one of the best chances SU would get all season to fix this bad run but I wouldn't have been brave enough to go for it if I used FH so nicely done!

                    Thanks. It was between Ramsdale & Tierney or Leno & AWB. Thought Tierney offered enough attacking potential to justify the former. And, yeah Newcastle were as good a toothless opponent as could be asked for.

                  It would make Cavani more interesting. I think he was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet tonight

                    So was Bruno, perhaps. Points spread between a lot of players looks like an issue. Pogba and Cavani looked like they will get their share in the future also.

                Would you just save FT and hold this for 19?
                No Liverpool I know but taking a punt on going without short-term, any other glaring omissions?

                  No Salah, but he is hard to get.

                  Imho,this is the gw of the season you should not go without Salah.

                    I’ll probably get Salah but in form Utd and mean defence Burnley doesn’t feel like a goal rout.

                      I could easily chicken out and get rid of Rashford & Laca and get Salah and a DGW striker in for a hit!

                  No Salah the last 4 GWs has worked wonders for my rank. How much longer I can "get away" with it is anyone's guess...

                    Captaining him in recent GWs was very annoying

                  Pretty happy to be in the 1/3rd not taking the FH so far.

                  Pretty sad that I fell asleep instead of doing Taylor -> Shaw before the deadline (330am here).

                    Despite rubbish score feeling the same; got City, Laca and Son and no-one else running away with big scores yet.

                    What's your score so far with how many played?

                    1. COVID-CASUAL
                        1 month, 16 days ago

                        3pts with 6 down (2 played, 4 blanks... yikes)

                        But the top 10k average is only 10 with 4.5 played. So only 7 points down. If that last 1.5 players is only another 7-ish, I'll take that as a great result for my situation

                            It's also possible that's not how I should be looking at this. But my initial thinking is I'd happily take a 10-15 hit this week having not used the FH or WC2 against the field and with a reasonable setup for GW19 and beyond

                            Not sure how that will compare with those that have FH around you but hope it works out for you.

                            I've FH and on 10 from 3 atm so won't know until tomorrow's games have completed how good or bad that is...

                        Me too. Wilson blank, Newcastle defence blank, Wolves defence and attack (at least those are popular) blank, the only minus so far that Rashford assist. Pretty much only the Arsenal game and Spurs defence can hurt me now.

                            You're looking good.

                            I'm a little different, don't have Son - but I haven't had Kane and Son at the same time at any stage this season so will wear that one if it goes pear-shaped. And I really need an Arse clean sheet - I thought it was nailed a few weeks back, but as everyone got on the Gunners bandwagon I've lost confidence it

                        I am thinking to get Shaw for the dgw19 but with only 3 days between the two fixtures he could get a rest.Any thoughts?

                            He got his haul - chasing points now IMO. Find the next differential instead.

                            FTR I wanted him this GW, didn’t make the trade, and will now avoid.

                            Yeah, always a rotation risk.

                            Wouldn’t spend a transfer on it unless necessary I don’t think, missed the boat with a plum defensive fixture tonight.

                            He played really well tho

                            I believe he's on 4 yellows now so a chance he plays the the tough game and misses the easy game. I would go for AWB.

                          If DCL is out a while, who is a good replacement at 8.1 or less? Would love Ings, but can't stretch at the moment.

                          Adams, Rodrigo? Watkins about it? Truly can't think of anyone outside of punts week in, week out.

                            Cavani? It’s Rodrigo for me but either Adams or Watkins could be good shouts. Keeping an eye on Tekkers and Wolves seem to have a new striker

                            Don't love Kilman on BB nor the covid situation. Tough to say.

                              Id ditch him for someone like Coufal

                            BB is cool for this week I guess

                            McCarthy (Johnstone)
                            Justin, Dias, Dallas, Coufal (Balbuena)
                            KDB, Fernandes, Son, Salah, Soucek
                            Bamford, DCL (Brewster)

                            Balbuena, DCL, Brewster --> Antonio, Watkins, Targett for -8 and BB?

                            Worth wildcarding if Leeds and Villa postponed leaves me with only 5 double gameweek players?

                              Well, depends on who your bench players are and how many pts you expect to get from them.

                            Gents after Salah blank Vs WestBrom Newcastle and Saints ... Must have for double? Is it too risky to not include him ? What you think ?

                                Personally I don't have the cojones to go without Salah in a DGW, he can return in any fixture imo.

                                  You did the right thing .. I mean watching Liverpool is not fun at all and to be honest Burnley United then Spurs is not looking good.. probably will end getting him anyway 🙁

                                    Yes it worked out well but it could easily have turned out differently...

                                  Depends if you believe him and Liverpool are in terminal decline, or its something they'll correct. I think it's the latter.

                                    I believe that Salah is just not reliable blanking Vs easy fixtures ..I mean imagine captaining Salah for three successive blanks !
