The best FPL midfielders and forwards to buy or include on a BGW29 Free Hit

Midfielders and forwards come under the spotlight as we round up the best Fantasy Premier League (FPL) players for Blank Gameweek 29.

With only two assets costing more than £10.0m in action, a key strategy will be finding the right budget buys for our FPL teams.

Premium options Harry Kane (£11.5m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.5m) are among the players who have already risen in price before Friday’s deadline, with Gareth Bale (£9.6m) also on the up.

But are there more cut-price options going under the radar that are worth bringing in? We’ve studied the stats to find out in the Premium Members article below.

    Lads cant figure out what to do! help please.

    A) Cancelo, Son, Diagne > Veltman, Bale, Antonio
    B) Cancelo, Son, Diagne > Dallas, Trossard, Antonio

    Midfield is currently Grealish, Bruno, Gundo, Son & Lingard so feeling a bit snookered by potential injuries.

    A) gives me 3 differentials and B) gives me 2 as opp as Dallas

      A is better

    Is it worth to bring in a defender or mid for a hit? Dunk or Auba for example?

    1. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 6 days ago

      Yes most likely as if it is for a blank player its really only -2

    How about this for a Fh team:

    Sanchez (Areola)
    Cresswell, Dunk, Reguilon, Dallas (Veltman)
    Raphinha, Bale, Lingard, Auba (Lookman)
    Kane, Bamford (Antonio)

    Tough choices on the bench as I feel triple Brighton could work out and Antonio maybe a shout instead of triple Leeds?

    Son to Raphinha for -4 or don't bother?


  6. RobboKop

    Straight choice: Auba or Bale for this and the next few gws?

    Cancelo > XXX for a hit?

    A) Tierney
    B) Dunk (already got Veltman)
    C) Neither
