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.

      Wondering if I should play the FH in GW19 or just WC.

        Save the WC and BB to use in tandem

          think i'll do this if Leeds game gets postponed (FH18)

        2. fedolefan
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Makes sense, but WC gives me a chance to go without triple Spurs and a few others I don't like. Can also get Mo back. The BB may get me more points but I may score less in the interim holding onto guys I don't like.

      For the DGW:

      A) ESR (NEW)
      B) Strujik (BHA, SOU)

      Assuming Leeds v SOU goes ahead

      Thoughts on this FH19 side?

      Fabianski

      Cresswell - Coufal - Cancelo - Stones

      KDB (C) - Salah - Bruno - Barnes

      Vardy - Bamford

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Needs more Utd and Chelsea on current viewing, hmm. Hope Cavani is nailed for both matches but Ole is a liar. Pulisic also worth of consideration...

      2. Pukki Blinders

        Triple WHU defence? Someone’s gone mad I think

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 24 days ago

          They're cheap and face West Brom and Burnley lmao

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 24 days ago

            And what’s with the double City defence on FH mate... thought you said it was a long term strategy lol

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 24 days ago

              They face Palace and Villa and are an elite defense, plus I need to go 4ATB to afford the big hitters up front.

              If I was FH18 I would have only had Cancelo and punted on Gundo as a second City attacker as Stones/Dias 6 point ceiling doesn't appeal to me and could be gained elsewhere - see Utd defenders, Dier etc. But on FH19 it's better for my team structure this way.

              However, if Gundo is as advanced as he's been in recent weeks vs Brighton I'll be tempted to punt on him too and go Stones -> Justin instead.

              1. Pukki Blinders
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 24 days ago

                If gundo is advanced, if gundo even starts... a lot of ifs.

                Brighton love to concede from set pieces and considering Dias is the same price as Gundo I know who I’d rather. One assist or goal is enough for a defender to haul, not the case with mids or fwds.

            2. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Also, it is a long-term strategy. I have Cancelo and Dias in my normal team for West Brom, Sheff Utd, Burnley, Liverpool Spurs and then it's WC time.

        2. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Id do that. Expect one CS atleast. 6-8 points with potential bonus is good enough.

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Considering Moyes’ stance on rotation, wouldn’t be surprised to see 11 changes for the second game in DGW

      3. sunzip14
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        My current FH draft:

        Johnstone
        Justin, Coufal, Stones
        KDB, Bruno, Salah, Rashford/Son, Soucek
        Vardy/Werner, Antonio,

        Picking Werner and keeping Son allows 1.4 to upgrade in defense.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Looks great, I'm .9 SV off that - would definitely look to have Cancelo and upgrade the defense.

          1. sunzip14
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            I'm thinking that as well. Probably play 4-4-2/4-5-1 and drop Soucek or Antonio?

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Like Cancelo over Soucek for sure. Antonio worth the gamble with Burnley and West Brom. Do keep in mind that his fitness may be managed and he was apparently not up to speed in the cup match.

              1. sunzip14
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                Thank you. But he played the whole 90. I guess it was to build his match fitness. Otherwise, they could have taken him off if they wanted to ease him (although, they hadn't won the match until very late and that could have been a factor).

      4. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        And what is your current team? Just curious if its necessary to FH.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Meslier
          Cancelo - Dias - Dier (Holding, Dunne)
          KDB - Bruno - Son - Grealish (Smith-Rowe)
          Kane - Watkins - Bamford

          Plan was to downgrade Kane and get Salah but the likelihood of Villa/Leeds losing their DGW means I'll have lost 4 DGW players in one-go and will be down to 7 SGW players before transfers, with both Villa boys away to City. Far more optimal to play FH19 and targeting a big DGW like this is exciting and has high points potential.

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Fair enough. But if the Leeds game goes ahead maybe you'd be tempted to save?

            If the Leeds game goes ahead maybe a -8 for Kane Grealish and Watkins out could warrant saving the FH.

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 24 days ago

              That's a good shout, thanks. It could since I did have my eye on 29 before the two postponements. As ever, will wait for more information before making a final decision.

    7. akhilrajau
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Martinez, Johnstone
      Robortson, Coufal, Dallas, Maguire, Mitchell
      Bruno, Son, Salah, Soucek, Podence
      Adams, Kane, Bamford
      bank: 1.1m, FT: 1

      My initiy thought was to play bench boost. but i assume that we have another good dgw . what your opinion ?

      A. Son, Kane -> KDB, ings(-4) - 442
      B. Son, Podence, Adams -> KDB, Smith rowe, Brewster (-8) -442
      C. Son, Kane,Podence -> KDB, Antonio, Grealish(-8) - 442
      D. Make bench boost ready with - 12 (except Mitchell)

      Oh dear...
      Just realized how I've made a big mistake playing FH now

      I would have done Grealish to Rashford for a hit, a hit which I'll be taking anyway and now I don't have KDB either and might end up going without him...

      Essentially the extra players on FH now just become Saka, Kane, Wilson and Lloris

      Terrible and now I have the fear of KDB for the weeks ahead

        Use the livefpl team planner next time. Wouldn't want to be without KDB for sure, best captain choice for DGW19 IMO.

          Agree, although there's that slight chance of Villa game not happening?

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year

            More than a slight chance

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Doesn't look like it, Villa will, it seems, be back to the training ground by Saturday - main reason their match vs Everton is going to be postponed is because they'll have very little time to prepare and achieve match fitness after ten days of self isolating for key players. City match is on Thursday and should be good to go.

            1. sunzip14
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              This. However, they should also have enough players returning negative test results, no? Or does the match go ahead even with some youth team players, if the training facilities open?

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 24 days ago

                We should find out before the deadline, I think the players who got the virus have recovered but they're so underprepared at the moment that they want to delay the game. Doubt they want to be forced into playing youth players either.

                    If Villa vs Everton is called off, which is likely and what Villa have requested, then yes that does look like it will be the case.

                      honestly hope Villa is forced to play. Cant have people breaching covid rules and then asking to postpone games because they havent trained.

      1. Weeb Kakashi

        Probably No. But id look to play Bamford.

      Would you do any of these for a -8??

      Son Benteke>

      A Vardy Bowen/Raphinha
      B Ings Barnes/Pulisic

      Have Dier benched. So can just play Son and Dier without taking hits. Benteke will be benched then.

      1. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years

        Can you do Benteke to Antonio? I'd like to keep Son.

        1. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Doing Wilson> Antonio already.
          Benteke> Adams for a -4 can be done.
          OR
          Benching Benteke i can do 3.9> Cresswell for a -4.

          Both these moves by keeping Son.

            I wouldn't get Adams even if I was getting an extra free transfer. And the possibility that his fixture might get postponed worsens his case for me. The 3.9 -> Cresswell move looks very good - do that.

            I like the idea of getting Creswell more than Adams.

      Hey deadzone.
      Thoughts on son DCL > kdb Antonio
      I know people will think its crazy to go without son but kdb fixtures better over next 6 GW and would give me full 15 for BB19 if LEE SOU goes ahead

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Id do it.

      2. Pukki Blinders

        I’ve lined up the same moves. Also armband on KDB makes it worth it

      Lloris is playing right?

        Why wouldn’t he?

      Bottled it. Kept McGoldrick, but swapped Ramsdale for Lloris.

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Keeping McGoldie is a crime in itself

        1. Goodricke
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          The template was so solid, the only way to make ground was to take a punt or 2. If Sharp had not been on the pitch McGoldrick would have taken that penalty!, but what the hell. I played him in place of Wilson, so no real damage done there.

      If I want to FH19 is there any other risk besides all the games being stopped by the government, to not pull the trigger now? Some fixture postponement such as that of Villa, Leeds and Southampton work in favor of FHers, right?

      I think my concern now should be whether to FH this GW or keep it for later GWs with only 6 DGWers in the team (including Grealish) rather than whether to FH now or closer to the deadline. Is my thinking correct?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        No harm in waiting 3 days, realistically how much are you going to gain? Not worth the risk

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Probably right. Might only be the difference between having Cancelo or Stones in the team. Would you FH this team or keep for later?

          DDG*, Forster
          Justin*, Coufal*, Dier, Holding, Mitchell
          KDB*, Bruno*, Son, Grealish*?, Zaha
          Kane, Wilson, Brewster

              Thank you. Kane+Wilson>Salah+Antonio (-4) enough for the dgw?

              Do we have any clear picture about when the FH would be more valuable next? GW29 is the one I saw somewhere. Is it going to be a big BGW? Also saw some talks of combining WC and BB around DGW26. I think I need to do more research.

              1. Weeb Kakashi
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                BB WC around 26.
                Not only GW29... But i expect more blanks and doubles to come as there can be potential postponements due to covid in the near future.

          Thank you. Would appreciate if you could also give suggestion to use FH or not, on my above team.

        what is wrong with city - villa?

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Villa Covid situation. They have asked for postponement of game with Everton and there is worry that it could also affect the game with City.

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Everton should get postponed. But City comes next Thursday. 8 days from now. I think it should be good to go .

    19. tuturututu

        Is Leeds game vs Soton in danger of postponement?

        1. Weeb Kakashi

          Yes. But we will know by the deadline. No worries there.

        Thoughts on this DGW team with a -4

        Areola
        Cancelo Cresswell AWB Dallas
        KDB(C) Raz Bruno Son
        Antonio Bamford

        Dier Benteke.

        Leaning towards saving FH.

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          No brainer if Leeds have a dgw. Looks good as it is even if no dgw, as I can only see 3 players that realistically would need to be changed on FH (Areola, Dallas, Bamford).

          Early thoughts.. Got 2FT, 0.5 ITB- for 10 DGW players - but not sure what to do with Martinez(got lots of money tied up in him)/Adams- might be unfit. Any suggestions?

          Thinking Adams —> Antonio (if he’s gonna play) and benching KWP

          Team:
          Martinez
          Robertson / KWP / Dias /Stones
          Salah / Fernandes / Son / Soucek / KDB (TC)
          Bamford

          Bench: Button, Adams, Michell, Davis.

          Thoughts?

            Vila v Everton reported to be in doubt. Here we go again!

            1. Weeb Kakashi
              • 5 Years

              It was always in doubt. 10 first team players are down with Covid.

            Spent all week trying to pick sure starters for the free hit team and now that Shaw and Ampadu's 16 points are staring at me from the bench, I'm hoping for those 'sure starters' not to play! C,mon Pep, totally agree with you that Cancelo has looked a bit tired recently. Give him the night off and give Stones a well-earned break too.

                Won't count for much if Kane, Son and KDB scores similar/well. All about the differentialsunless your captain really hauls.

                Appearance points make up 12, CS would be 30, then it's captain KDB and the Son/Kane double up to hit 20+!

              Hello lads. Would you BB this team?

              Martinez Leno
              Mitchell Dias Stones Dallas Coufal
              Saka KDB Fernandes Son Souchek
              Kane Lacazette Bamford

              Planning on Lacazette+Saka to Antonio & Grealish (-4)

              Only worry is not having Salah. I could do Kane+Saka to Davis+Salah and drop the BB plan.
