Chip Strategy

FPL chip strategy: When to play the Free Hit, Bench Boost and Triple Captain?

Learn to choose your battles. Battles not fought are not lost; simply battles not worth fighting for.

Chips are on the minds of a lot of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers. No, I’m not talking about the ones where just one is not enough (clearly FPL has adopted this line of thinking after their Christmas gift) but the ones that could potentially lead to big gains in FPL if lethally deployed.

When I’m looking around, I’ve seen a lot of FPL managers play their chips simply because of ‘FOMO’ (fear of missing out) or because they are presuming their better opportunities will not arrive in the future. Within this article, I aim to cast an eye on what opportunities might arrive in the future and what factors you should think about while deploying your chips. I just want to reiterate at this point that what you should do with the chips is fully dependant on your team. I just want to give more FPL food to chew upon. That’s about it. At this point, I want to just take this opportunity to thank Legomane, Ben Crellin, Talha Nadeem, Planet FPL, Pras and Sonaldo who have been doing excellent work on this topic and serve as the basis of my research.

First off, let’s quickly look again at Double Gameweek 22.

As I already cited in my article last week, no team has a standout pair of Double Gameweek 22 matches on paper with the exception of Watford. In addition, popularly owned ‘single’ Gameweekers like Liverpool, West Ham United and Everton have good fixtures on paper and there is a strong chance you could miss out on some hauls if you Free Hit these players out. There has been enough conversation around Gameweek 22 so I am not going to dwell further on it. Let’s look ahead at potential future opportunities and factors to consider.

Blank Gameweek 27

The Carabao Cup has now concluded there are two games that are going to be postponed because of it:

  • Arsenal vs Liverpool
  • Chelsea vs Leicester City

At this point, I would like to thank regular FFScout contributor Legomane for the planning charts he makes available for us, which help visualise the free midweeks and what is scheduled for the team in play.

There is a chance that Liverpool could have a Double Gameweek 26 (which I will touch upon later). Also, these four teams are not guaranteed to blank in Gameweek 27; one of their outstanding fixtures could potentially be moved to the midweek of Gameweek 27, although that would require them and their opponents not to reach the FA Cup fifth round.

For the purposes of this piece, let’s assume that these four teams blank in Gameweek 27. The ownership from these four, especially Liverpool, is considerably high, which does tell me that there is a potential opportunity to play a Free Hit chip in this week. There are some good targetable fixtures in Gameweek 27 with your Free Hit, too, in my opinion. I’ll just list them down here:

  • Everton vs Manchester City
  • Manchester United vs Watford
  • Crystal Palace vs Burnley
  • Southampton vs Norwich

Blank Gameweek 30

As we can see above, Gameweek 30 is where the FA Cup quarter-finals take place, meaning that a lot of teams should blank. At the moment, we have one confirmed fixture in Gameweek 30 and that is Aston Villa vs Arsenal. This confirmed fixture is also quite important to note, as you can have an overview of things and a little bit of shrewdness with transfers can go a long way.

Given the way the FA Cup draw has fallen so far, we could potentially see a considerable number of teams blanking in Gameweek 30. So the Free Hit chip could be handy to tackle this Blank Gameweek if your team is hit hard by postponements.

Why I mention Arsenal and Aston Villa here is that we know for sure that they have a fixture in Gameweek 30 and both teams have good fixtures (and a potential double or triple for Aston Villa) in the weeks beforehand, which is something to keep in mind before selling players from these teams. It could potentially lead to you dead-ending your team in Gameweek 30 instead of deploying the Free Hit chip that week and then using the Wildcard in Gameweek 31.

Again, there is no straightforward chip strategy that I’m aiming to bring to light with this article. These are simply factors to consider and think about when planning when to deploy your chips. Like I mentioned at the top of the article, there will be many battles to fight until Gameweek 38 and you can avoid ‘FOMO’ by picking and choosing your battles wisely. For example, I am loosely thinking about holding onto Aaron Ramsdale (£5.1m) and Bukayo Saka (£6.4m) with the view of maybe saving a Free Hit for Gameweek 30. Aston Villa are also something to think about.

Potential Double or Triple Gameweek 23

There could be a Double or Triple Gameweek 23, with the potential for games to be scheduled during the FA Cup fourth round or during the international break.

There are free TV slots on Saturday at 5.30pm and Sunday at 2pm in the first weekend of February, which could signal a Double Gameweek (likely for Aston Villa and one of Burnley or Leeds United) – although it’s worth noting that there is a big England rugby game at 5pm on that Saturday.

Additionally, as per The Athletic, Premier League teams could schedule games during the winter break but you would think that this break is for international teams outside of Europe that have matches. Teams with important players from South America (for example) might have a problem with their blanks getting scheduled here.

This is just speculation, of course. But Aston Villa definitely have a game in Gameweek 30 and these are their fixtures in the mid-term.

They have home games against Leeds United, Watford and Southampton and an away trip to Newcastle United in the mid-term. This makes me think that instead of using Free Hit on their assets in Gameweek 23, I’d much rather spend points, take some hits and buy their players because they have good mid-term fixtures and a confirmed match in Gameweek 30 which might help me save a Free Hit there as well. Again these are just food-for-thought musings from my end and you can choose to do what you want with this information.

Potential Liverpool Double Gameweek 26

As we can see in Legomane’s chart above (click to expand), Liverpool have a free midweek in Gameweek 26 in which they play Norwich at home. They also have a home game against Leeds United still to be scheduled and if it falls in Gameweek 26, I don’t think there is ever going to be a better opportunity to deploy the Triple Captain chip with Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) facing Norwich City and Leeds United at home. The one caveat is that Liverpool are likely to blank in Gameweek 27.

Situation after Gameweek 30

At this point, without going into too much detail, I just want to touch upon what happens after Gameweek 30.

Gameweek 33 is where the FA Cup semi-finals take place. The midweek after this is free, giving potential for a large Double Gameweek. Also, teams that are in the FA Cup semi-final could either blank or have their one Gameweek 33 fixture pushed to midweek. So Gameweek 33 is one where some teams could double, some would have a single match and some could have none. A good week for chip deployment, primarily your Free Hit, Bench Boost or maybe Triple Captain.

Similarly, the midweeks after Gameweek 36 and Gameweek 37 are also free and traditionally the former is a big Double Gameweek where a lot of managers look to Bench Boost. You can even think about using your Free Hit chip here should you wish to.

I don’t want to delve too much into post-Gameweek 30 but hopefully this helps you with some planning and primarily your decision with what to do in Gameweek 22. I quickly want to say thanks to Pras and Zophar for skimming through this article. The point I really wanted to make is there will be many opportunities to be aggressive during this season and it won’t be possible to do so all the time. Pick your battles based on your team and based on potential upside.

    Maybe if Arsenal are lucky, Newcastle will sign him

  2. DA Minnion (Former great)

    If anyone can Xhaka can.

  3. Sickboy

    Does anyone know if free hits and wildcards are included in the % changes on FPL statistics? Thanks

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Yes I think so, which is why they are usually a bit out in weeks when lots of chips are played

      1. Sickboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years

        Thanks mate

    1. DA Minnion (Former great)
      • 9 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      But why does Arteta also play him.

  4. merin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    Ronaldo(c) or Kane(c) for a hit?

    1. Qaiss
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Id have said Ronaldo but Arsenal probably have to play Lokonga and Chambers/Patino against Spurs. Depends on Leicester game too I guess.

      1. merin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        LEI are very leaky…

        1. Qaiss
          • 6 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          Yeah indeed, just whether the game will go ahead.

          1. merin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            5 days, 11 hours ago

            Ah, true. Is it risky because of covid in LEI?

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Kane

  5. how now brown cow

    I know I'm a biased spurs fan, but surely even arsenal fans find xhaka hilarious.

    Disappointing thing is he cant be sent off sunday now presumably.

    1. Qaiss
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Some Arsenal ‘fans’ think he’s one of our best players which is a bit sad

      1. how now brown cow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        From the outside it seems the obvious position that needs addressing.

    2. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Lacking Partey and Elneny so its gonna be an empty midfield. Odegaard has covid too

      May as well cancel

  6. Ginkapo FPL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    Claim covid cancellation and bribe the ref.stay classy scousers, stay classy

    1. SINGH
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      They had to find a way to delay playing Arsenal when momentum was with them.

    2. Rocket Raccoon

      Amazing guff

  7. The Mighty Whites

    1FT, 0.3 ITB, thoughts?

    DDG - Bachmann

    TAA - Cancelo - Dawson - White - Livramento

    Son - Jota - Gundogan - Bowen - Raphinha

    Ronaldo - Antonio - Broja

    A - Son & Broja to Maddison & Dennis (-4)
    B - Son & Dawson to Reg / Sanchez (-4)
    C - Just Son to Madison / Moura for free?
    D - other?

    1. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Probably A and bench Gundogan

    2. waltzingmatildas

      A

    Xhaka suspended in the NLD now? That's such a Xhaka thing to do when we really need him for that game. Not many options left in central midfield. Lokonga and Ben White to play there GW22?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Time to get some positive tests out of the cupboard!

      1. Random Name
        • 6 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Just make sure Leno isn't one of the positive tests cos he couldn't catch Covid if he tried

        1. tokara
          • 7 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          Lol good one

      2. Gunnerblurrg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Agreed! Time to close the training ground for a couple of days

    2. Nomar
      • 12 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      I don't think you ever need Xhaka in any game.

  9. tokara
    • 7 Years
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    What happen to Odegaard???

    1. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Rumour is that he has covid unfortunately

      1. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        With Xhaka RC … that’s two more players down …..

        1. how now brown cow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          Is xhaka suspended really losing a player?

          FA going to take some convincing.

          1. Eh, just one more thing ...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            5 days, 11 hours ago

            13 + Gk senior players have to be available to play … if your suspended your not available so if he takes them below the 13+1 then it’s still below (although totally their own fault) ..

            1. how now brown cow
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years

              Even if its xhaka 😉

      2. tokara

        Oh man my team is so decimated

      1. tokara
        • 7 Years

        Cheers, he look so pale in the pic

        1. POTATO
          • 1 Year
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          It's winter and he's native Norwegian - of course he's pale.

  10. Random Name
    • 6 Years
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    at least he's banned for the next 3 games the absolute clown

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      What was his other red this season? If that's a second violent conduct it could be 4 games.

      1. Random Name
        • 6 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        it was against City in that 5-0 right at the start of the season. Not sure about the violent conduct tho

        1. how now brown cow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          Was a straight red for a "lunge on cancelo". Sounds about right.

          Guessing that was violent conduct too.

    2. Declan
      • 11 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      2 games

  11. ZTF
    • 7 Years

    Reguilon or Cucurella?

    1. tokara
      • 7 Years

      Reg injury

      1. GoonerSteve

  12. Skonto Rigga

    Arsenal possibly down to 12 senior outfielders now for the Spurs game (one below the threshold for a P-P)?

    1. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Interesting development..

    2. beric

      The system is mad if they get a postponement because of a red card

      1. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        And Odegaard out with covid … two players added to the missing list today.

    3. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Xhaka giving his all for the club

    4. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      I count 13. Unless Tavares doesn't count.

      1. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Are you including Odegaard who was confirmed covid today?

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 9 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          I just looked at their bench today and can see 4 senior outfield players (Chambers, Mari, Holding, Taveres(?)) on it. Plus the 9 that are currently playing this game.

          1. JONALDINHO
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            5 days, 11 hours ago

            What’s the story with Kolasinac too

      2. SINGH
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Tavares is due to test positive after this game

    5. Bertonian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Game off then! 12 outfield players including 5 centre backs. Arteta bound to ask for postponement if they are the rules?

  13. Make Arrows Green Again
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    It wasn't intentional. He didn't mean it.

    Is the only possible reason I can think of when Arteta plays Xhaka.

    1. tokara
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Lol

  14. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    Who to bench in order to play maddison ?
    A) raphinha
    B) gray
    C) Antonio
    D) don't do the transfer and just bench son

    1. ZTF
      • 7 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Raphinha

  15. Tinfoil Deathstar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    Pretty set on doing Son to Maddison with the FT. Worth doing now to beat prices? Seems fairly low risk given we’ve had the Leicester presser and we know Son is out.

    1. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      * price changes

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Burnley are low on players aren't they?

      1. Tinfoil Deathstar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Ah wasn’t aware of that. Fair point

      2. tokara
        • 7 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        After selling Wood lol

    3. putana
      • 3 Years

      if you can always wait until the last 10 minutes to do transfers this season

      1. Tinfoil Deathstar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Yeah I’ve made very few early transfers this season - just fairly certain with the transfer I want to make this week which hasn’t always been the case recently. Didn’t realise the potential issues with Burnley so will wait.

  16. BT31 - WE ARE ALL TINKERMEN…

    Foster Guaita
    TAA Cancelo Keane Liva Duffy
    Jota Bowen Martinelli Luiz Son
    Ronaldo Dennis Antonio

    Would you do Son/Antonio to Maddison/Kane for -8 now before price rises? Thanks

    1. beric

      I would wait

    Xhaka gets 100k at the end of the week after today's performance. Let that sink in

    1. Djokovic Airlines
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Salah just wants four times the salary. I'd show FSG a video of Xhaka and tell them what they will get for four times this amount.

      1. Random Name
        • 6 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Not sure why they're not stumping it up - I understand you got a wage structure and whatnot but 20 million a year for the best player in the world isn't bad. They made that off the sales of Shaqiri and Wilson

        1. tokara
          • 7 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          They dun wan to be like United

    wow, here in Liverpool Hater place number 1 no discussions whether the red card was justified? I can't believe my eyes.

    1. RedRo

          sorry, I'm not a native speaker but you were right with your 2nd comment 🙂

          1. RedRo
              5 days, 11 hours ago

              Nah, I’m sorry - I worded that pretty rudely and got exactly what you meant as soon as I read it back after 🙂

        2. RedRo
            5 days, 11 hours ago

            You’re asking why no-ones questioning the red card? I think it was pretty clear cut.

              Yes. Normally people here come up with the most creative ideas to defend blatantly wrong decisions against Liverpool.

              Didn't Alcantara set a record for the highest number of thumbs up during games last season? Lol

            Xhaka should be playing for Sunderland not Arsenal.

              Sunderland fans have suffered enough FFS.

                Fair enough.

                He would be great Lee Cattermole for future generations.

                  Lee had a knack for getting the yellow first though. He was back from his suspensions breaking legs quicker than you could blink

              Leave Sunderland alone, they suffer enough as it is.

            So Wood has gone to Newcastle.

            Good bit of business, that, weakening fellow relegation strugglers.

            Very clever, Burnley! 😀

              Release clause was met so Burnley had no choice.

                  Didn’t think it was sarcasm as it wasn’t funny in any way. But seeing a couple more of your posts, maybe a sense of humour escapes you

              Not to worry, just take another -4 and replace him with Odegaard.

                I just did as soon as Xhaka was sent off and now I am reading he is out with COVID. Got to take another -4 and bring in Vardy against that weak Spurs defence

                  Partner him up with Son for another -4 to have a go at that Leicester defence to … it’s a game you’ll love to watch lol

            Arsenal with currently 13 outfield players available. If it goes down to 12 game is cancelled with Spurs. Mightn’t free hit now

            I guess Salah and Mané are pretty important to Liverpool. Who knew?

            Would Xhaka's sending off mean a DM partnership of White and Sambi, with Gabriel and Holding at CB? Oh dear...

            Xhaka sending off has actually made it harder for Liverpool to break Arsenal down without Salah/Mane/Origi. They facing 8 defenders and Lacazette now.
