FPL Q&A: Gameweek 37 Free Hit dilemmas and what to do with Coutinho

We’re almost there. It has been one exhausting season because of the sheer number of Double Gameweeks we’ve had. Before we move into the final stretch, I thought I’d take on some of your questions.


Q) Sadio Mane (£11.8m) v Harry Kane (£12.4m) v Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) on a Free Hit in Gameweek 37? (From @pras_fpl)

Thanks for the question, Pras. Out of the three that you have mentioned, my least preferred option is De Bruyne, primarily because Manchester City travel to a West Ham side who now have no European distractions. With David Moyes’ first-choice centre-backs fit, City will be facing a strong Hammers side for whom it is the last home game of the season. I fully expect a tight performance from the east Londoners, who definitely know how to sit back and frustrate opponents.

The other two players have a lot more haul potential in my opinion. With Liverpool, you can judge which of the cheaper midfielders is going to be benched in the FA Cup final, which handily takes place before the Sunday deadline – so you don’t need to spend more than £10.0m on your differential Liverpool attacker, in my opinion. This is why Mane falls behind Kane in the pecking order, for me.

It also helps that Kane is on penalties and in games in which I expect Spurs to keep the majority of the possession, I do like the England international as a pick. It’s also the Lilywhites’ last home match of the season and because of how we’ve seen Kane finish seasons in the past, I think the haul potential here is quite high. So because of the reasons I’ve mentioned, my order would be Kane, Mane and then De Bruyne.


Q) Last-day-of-the-season hits – what’s your feeling on them? (From @BakerFPL343)

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 12? 1

Thanks for the question, Baker. I’ve actually had great success with hits on the final day of the season. There are always some games that have more than a few goals in them. Historically, we’ve seen an unusually high number of goals scored in Gameweek 38 which is why I think it is okay to take a hit on the final day if you feel like you’ve identified certain match-ups which you really like and have ‘bloodbath’ potential. If this involves captaincy, it’s worth it even more.

Given the season we’ve had, I wouldn’t mind a hit for a premium attacker/defender given the opposition they face are notoriously poor at the back and don’t have much to play for (Norwich/Watford/ Southampton/Wolves). It just so happens that four teams capable of scoring more than a few goals play these sides in Gameweek 38. As things stand, I don’t mind a hit for a Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea or Leicester player on the last weekend, given the very high upside on offer, but you need to be absolutely sure of their expected minutes.


Q) A Manchester City defender or a second Aston Villa defender on a Free Hit? (From @McGrawFPL)

FPL Gameweek 18 round-up: Sunday review, injury news and the things we learned 4

If the Manchester City defender you are talking about is Joao Cancelo (£7.2m), it becomes a slightly more difficult question because he was so good versus Newcastle United, clocking incredible underlying numbers and looking back to his underlapping best. He was very advanced on the pitch but I’m not here to sit on the fence with my answers and given that Manchester City travel to West Ham, who will no doubt play their first-choice team, I would roll the dice and go without a City defender. The fact that Manchester City have only three fully fit defenders at the moment further strengthens the case for this.

The thing about both the Aston Villa full-backs, Matty Cash (£5.3m) and Lucas Digne (£5.0m), is that they have the potential for points at both ends of the pitch. The underlying numbers for Cash are well documented but Digne did look like he was playing further forward in the game against Norwich City.


Q) What on earth do Phillipe Coutinho (£7.1m) owners do? (From FPLRichard)

FPL Gameweek 35 Scout Picks early selection: Villa pair among four double-ups

This is a tricky one and it is worth mentioning that I am writing this article before Aston Villa play Liverpool. My opinion could change before the deadline but at the moment, my thinking is that now that we’ve made our bed with him, we hold him as a pick in Gameweek 37. He still has haul potential in both home games and Steven Gerrard did mention that they are playing a lot of matches in quick succession at the moment, which is why he was rested against Burnley.

Villa have two home fixtures in Gameweek 37 and you’re guaranteed – in theory, anyway – that he starts at least one match, potentially both. There’s also the fact that Gerrard has mentioned that he wants Coutinho to stay at the club after his loan stint and that has me thinking there is a fair chance that he plays both games. Ideally, you really want him to start in the Burnley match and the chances of that increase given the fact that the Brazilian made the line-up in Tuesday’s clash with Liverpool. If Gerrard is rotating him, he could be rested for the more difficult-on-paper home game against Crystal Palace.


That’s it from me this week, so good luck this Gameweek. Sitting on an overall rank of 1,174th at the time of writing, I hope to see you soon inside the top 1k!

    Mane or Salah on WC? May Mane be rested?
    Also, would you double up with Diaz or Jota?

    1. Casualspotted
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        I wouldnt double and i think Mane will rest vs Soton

      • The Mentaculus

        12 days, 12 hours ago

        Tricky, as I think the Liverpool lineup may vary quite a bit from 37 to 38. You'd think Mané might be due a rest next week but Klopp calling him a "machine" may suggest otherwise & his form trumps Salah's. Jota has a good chance of starting next week but over both games I'd probably rather back Diaz

        Mane - if he was going to be rested it would have been this week, but Mo got benched which tells you he is tactically and form wise out of favour

      Still have TC and FH left....

      Should i keep FH for the last week and TC Zaha this week?

      1. No Kane No Gain
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        Don’t TC zaha. His team may be at the beach, it’s 2 away games where they are not too amazing. Also, I wouldn’t rule out random tinkering and zaha misses one of the games.

      2. Casualspotted
          12 days, 12 hours ago

          I would TC Son vs Norwich

            I might just put this on

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Yeah would do - he’s on a tear ATM, him or perhaps Barnes

        I'd TC Richarlson but you've put yourself in a very bad spot. Should have used TC this week.

        1. theplayer
          • 8 Years
          12 days, 12 hours ago

          That's not true. I triple captained Salah 🙁

            • 3 Years
            12 days, 12 hours ago

            It is true. He could've used it on Cancelo, KDB, Son

            Just because most people here are sheep doesnt mean that he is.

            1. TheAbear53
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              But he might be a sheep.

                I would have TC Salah lol. It's just mismanagement tbh

        Problem with being on a FH is I wanna spam you guys with every single draft I make. Instead, I'll try to exercise some restraint and only post one every couple of days in the hopes no-one notices and minds too much.

        1. Casualspotted
            12 days, 12 hours ago

            Be free to post it mate !!!

          I'm going to put an end to Sons chances of winning the golden boot by getting him in this week.. we've a long standing agreement between us that entails him failing miserably each time I own him.

            12 days, 11 hours ago

            Please please buy Højbjerg or Bentacur instead! Son is total rubbish - you've seen the evidence so don't doubt yourself. 😀

          Thoughts on this recent of FH draft? (Assuming Watkins injured)

          Pickford
          Matip Cash Digne
          Salah Son KDB Zaha Gordon
          Kane Richarlison

          Steele Anderson Tsimikas Richardson

          1. BECKS TO THE FUTURE
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            12 days, 12 hours ago

            I think it looks good overall.

            The Villa def double up might be too much? But both quite attacking tbf. I might go without Salah (looking at doubling up on Jota and Diaz) - which might allow an upgrade to TAA or VVD (but then rotation risk comes in).

            Could you upgrade Richardson to Ings and play 343 (benching Gordon)?

            1. Mr Bird
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              12 days, 11 hours ago

              I can but it would involve losing KDB. Might be better all round though.

              Pickford
              Robbo Cash Digne
              Salah Son Kulu Zaha
              Kane Richarlison Ings

              Gordon 1st bench.

          What I love about the article's photo is Coutinho's genuine smile. Despite recent form, he seems to be enjoying his football again.

            Sarcasm? Thats genuine smile? I give that kind of smile to my relatives with whom I'm not interested to talk 😀

          who scores more points from here on in:

          A. TAA
          B. Robbo

          1. Pino

            I think TAA. Looked sharper last game than before.

          2. cruzex

          Im on 85p with BB and 10 players still to play. Im upsett that my Salah (C) went wrong and I didnt captain Canselo as I planed/wanted.

          But still with so many points and players still to go I dont have a reason to complain right? Its just that things could have been much better. 🙁

          1. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            12 days, 12 hours ago

            as long as your bench did well, its all good. Captaincy was hit and miss this week anyway

            1. Pino
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              12 days, 12 hours ago

              My bench is Foster 4p, Couthino 3p, James 1p, Gordon 2p. 🙂

              1. Holmes
                • 8 Years
                12 days, 12 hours ago

                Not the worth result considering you have 3 players still left. 15 should be possible, if not more.

              2. The Mentaculus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                12 days, 11 hours ago

                My BB is GW28 looked like an utter disaster after the 1st round of fixtures: Sanchez 1, Ait Nouri 0, Broja 2, Jimenez 1. But I ended up with 23pts from those guys & 147 total. So, like Holmes says, be patient & assess it at the end of the GW

          2. Big Mac 24
            • 9 Years
            12 days, 11 hours ago

            But 85 points is top 25000 this game week, and with 10 players left you’re in a good position to continue moving up. Captain went wrong but excellent score considering that.

        7. Jet5605
          • 7 Years
          12 days, 12 hours ago

          Am I wasting BB by playing it this week? Not confident about my bench, Mount and Maddison. Also have FH which I was planning to save until GW38

          Schmeichel
          TAA - Cancelo - James
          KDB - Mount - Son - Saka - Maddison
          Richarlison - Dennis

          Foster - Mateta - Mitchell - Schar

          1. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            12 days, 12 hours ago

            Dennis could be out as well

            I guess you dont really have any other choice

            1. Jet5605
              • 7 Years
              12 days, 12 hours ago

              You think I should FH instead and BB in 38 in the hope that Matata and Mitchell are back for Palace?

              1. Holmes
                • 8 Years
                12 days, 11 hours ago

                doubt your bench will get better in 38 as well, so just use it and hope for best. maybe take a -4pts to add a DGW player.

              2. AC/DC AFC
                • 6 Years
                12 days, 10 hours ago

                I'm not sure BB in gw38 is the way to go.

                Take a minus 8 this week?

                1. Jet5605
                  • 7 Years
                  12 days, 10 hours ago

                  Yeah I'm leaning towards BB this week with a -4 or -8 depending on who starts tonight, tmrw and presser updates.

          2. The Mentaculus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            12 days, 11 hours ago

            Tough one. I would guess Mateta starts one game, whereas in 38 who knows. Mount should be ok. Maddi wait & see tonight. If Vieira passes Mitchell as fit in presser then probably go for it in 37

            1. Jet5605
              • 7 Years
              12 days, 10 hours ago

              Thanks. Yeah wait and see is probably the best approach. I could easily be faced with the same dilemma in 38

          Who do you think scores more in GW37 and 38?

          A) play James both games
          B) Mykolenko GW37, Laporte 37

          Question is actually is it worth selling James for Mykolenko in GW37 and play Laporte in GW38?

            Schmeichel Ramsdale

            Cancelo Rudiger Laporte White Castagne

            Salah Saka Gordon Kuluveski Barnes

            Pukki Dennis Kane

            Any ideas would be welcomed

            Schmeichel, (Jakupovic)
            Mykolenko, Cancelo, Cash, (Andersen), (Tsimikas)
            Salah, Son, Zaha, Gordon, (Brownhill)

            1. Mozumbus
                12 days, 11 hours ago

                Schmeichel to Martinez

                  Actually I'd pick Pickford this week only.

                    12 days, 11 hours ago

                    Over Gordon perhaps?

                      12 days, 11 hours ago

                      I have picked Schmeichel and Kane primarily because number 2 in my cash league got both and I´m leading with 50 points.

                  2. Mozumbus
                      12 days, 11 hours ago

                Have Coutinho + Cash for the double.

                Hows this for - 4

                Foster➡️Pickford
                Kulu➡️Gordon

                Have Dubravka for final day.

                Have Son and Kane.

                  Just the 1st move maybe? Kulu out for a hit doesn't sit well with me. Not too hot on Gordon and would rather have the entire Spurs front 3 for Burnley & Norwich

                Looking at 8ph…Mount to Zaha – Gelhardt to Nketia – Ramsdale – Pickford?
                Sounds like both White and Alonso will start? 1FT .2mib

                All SGW players to DGW (and non playing Gelhardt to Nketia, so should make up most of the points and they are ok for GW38. What do you think? Any better idea? Thanks!

                Ramsdale - Dubravka
                Alonso - Matip- TAA - White - Cancelo
                Saka - Mount - Son - Salah - DH
                Kane - Mateta - Gelhardt

                Is Saka a doubt ("it's the same")?

                  12 days, 11 hours ago

                  Sounds like a doubt, but this NLD match is crucial. Hoping he's OK for tomorrow as I have him.

                    Same. Wouldn't mind if he was a doubt for 37 as I'd like to get Zaha in, but I guess that's an unlikely scenario.

                  With that team I probably would FH38.

                Hello all, a bit out of the loop this week and GW36 hasn't been very fruitful for me (currently 25 pts behind in my ML!).

                Just looking for some feedback on this motley crew for GW37? 1ft and 0.3 itb

                Ramsdale
                Cancelo Cash TAA Alonso
                Salah Gordon Son Saka
                Rich Kane
                (Matip Ramsey fodder)

                Considering Ramsdale > Pickford for a FT.....unless there are any pressing priorities I am missing?

                Also, benching Matip just seems wrong!

                1. Holmes
                  • 8 Years
                  12 days, 11 hours ago

                  Alonso/Saka getting benched will solve the Matip problem.

                  As far as FT is concerned, that move isnt highly rewarding but options are pretty limited with only 0.3 in bank. You can consider Sakak to Zaha if he is ruled out.

                  1. CRAZY TRAIN
                    • 10 Years
                    12 days, 10 hours ago

                    I'm 0.1 short of Saka > Zaha, although not convinced by Zaha anyway tbh. I should have added that I'm FH GW38 so steering towards Pickford, although in no hurry to do it

                • 9 Years
                12 days, 11 hours ago

                Which combo on FH?

                1) Kane and Son
                2) Son and KDB

                A) TAA
                B) Cancelo

                  2

                  A or B is fine

                12 days, 11 hours ago

                don't know what all the fuss about this NLD is, result is irrelevant really as arsenal just need to win their last 2 games to secure top 4 even with a spurs victory

                I suppose tv companies still want people to tune in

                  Every chance ars could slip up at newcastle if they lose tonight

                    12 days, 11 hours ago

                    really? Newcastle on the beach and it will be the biggest game of the season for arsenal, really can't see them slipping up there

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      12 days, 11 hours ago

                      I think they'll be up for their last home game of the season. And even though Arsenal have managed to patch things up without Partey/Tierney & eke out some good results, they still dont really fill me with confidence at the moment

                      Surprised you'd think that, tbh. Nobody's ever at the beach where money and contracts are involved.

                  Newcastle away i not a easy game. And Everton are improving.

                  All could be irrelevant if the NLD is a draw, of course.

                On FH37, what option would you prefer?
                A) 3-4-3: Robertson, Gordon, Kane
                B) 3-5-2: Digne, Maddison, Mane

                  A. Think Maddison will play both and is an option on FH?

                  Not sure you get 2 full games out of Maddi, and I don't like uncertainties this late into the season. I would honestly rather Trossard for the single vs Leeds and have an extra mil to spend

                Kane & Coutinho -> Son & Watkins for a hit?

                  No, sideways move. Get Zaha for Coutinho?

                  Watkins might have picked up an injury

                  Definitely shift Coutinho, like Ramajama below I would suggest Zaha

                On a wildcard, toying with 2 formations for the next 2 weeks.
                The short of it is - would you rather:

                A) Matip vs SOU (a) in 37
                & Sessegnon vs LEE (a) in 38

                B) Trossard vs LEE (a) in 37
                & Trossard vs WHU (h) in 38?

                      Defensive and some attacking potential. Great fixtures for teams with lots worth fighting for. I don’t trust Trossard

                      1. buzzkill
                        • 6 Years
                        12 days, 11 hours ago

                        I agree Trossard is a troll. I very rarely own him and feel bringing him in smells of point chasing but it's difficult to ignore his form.

                    12 days, 11 hours ago

                    Attacking potential.

                      12 days, 11 hours ago

                      Thanks, that's where I'm leaning. It's neck and neck in my ML, he doesn't have Trossard but has double pool defence so losing Matip could potentially gift him a clean sheet but Trossard vs that Leeds defence with so many out is mouth watering

                      1. AC/DC AFC
                        • 6 Years
                        12 days, 11 hours ago

                        Go Trossard.

                        Can't you afford Matip as well?

                        1. buzzkill
                          • 6 Years
                          12 days, 11 hours ago

                          Oh I can afford both, but my team is that strong that I was thinking about benching him.

                          The Trossard option:

                          GW37
                          Pickford- (Raya)
                          Cancelo - Robbo - Cash - (Matip) - (fodder)
                          KDB - Son - Saka - Zaha - Trossard
                          Kane - Richarlison - (fodder)

                          ...who gets benched for Matip?

                          GW38
                          Raya - (Pickford)
                          Cancelo - Robbo - Matip - (Cash) - (fodder)
                          KDB -Son - Saka - Zaha - Trossard
                          Kane - Richarlison - (fodder)

                          so in 38 it would be Sessegnon instead of Trossard

                          1. AC/DC AFC
                            • 6 Years
                            12 days, 10 hours ago

                            You'll likely need at least 1 sub by gw38.

                            2 or 3 could come in handy!

                              12 days, 10 hours ago

                              An excellent point, thank you.
                              If I scrap the Trossard idea it means I'll have a bench of Pickford / Cash / Douglas Luiz / Nketiah for GW38

                              Douglad Luiz can be any 4.4 mid - Brownhill, Dewsbury-Hall, Noble, etc.

                Best option;

                A) Play Coady - home to Norwich

                B) Sell to Digne (-4)

                I've not really seen West Ham sit back to frustrate opponents in all their games I've seen this season.

                Maybe they'll play different tactics against Manchester City?

                I'd pick Kane too, they've got Burnley at home.

                Cancelo, Taa, Laporte, castagne
                Son, Salah, Diaz, Phoden
                Richarlison, Watkins
