Rate My Team

FPL Rate My Team surgery with five-time top 1k finisher Tom Freeman

The next Fantasy Premier League (FPL) deadline is fast approaching, with Gameweek 37 offering us another chance to make last-gasp leaps up the overall rankings and claim mini-league glory.

The questions on player purchases, captaincy picks and Free Hit drafts are coming thick and fast in the comments section, with the final Double Gameweek of the season adding to the frenzied feel.

And so we’ve again asked five-time top 1k finisher and Scout’s Deputy Editor, Tom Freeman, to answer some of your posers over the next 60 minutes.

He’ll be on hand to first reply to requests from Premium Members in the Hot Topic below the line of this piece and will get through as many as he can until the next article goes up.

If there’s time, Tom will also turn his attention to other requests in the comments section.

As ever, you can chip in with your own opinions on the raft of RMT requests filtering through – and naturally, feel free to ignore the article subject matter and talk about any other wider FPL topics that you’d normally be musing on.

Don’t forget that, if it’s an algorithmic answer you’re after rather than an opinion-based one, we also have a ‘Rate My Team’ tool available in the Premium Members Area.

    Choose two please - Gordon, Zaha, Maddison.

    I'm struggling. Got all three on FH, but one's going on the bench.
    Also have KDB, Salah and forwards of Vardy, Ings and Richarlison.

    Thoughts on this FH? 4 premiums, triple Villa, triple Everton + Kasper

    Cash Digne Myko
    Salah KDB Son Gordon
    Kane Ings Richa

      How many players different from ML leader?

        Mendy Guaita
        Robbo Cancelo Alonso Zinchenko Emerson
        KDB Son Diaz Saka Mount
        Pukki Nacho Toney

        I'm sure he's going to FH due to his lack of Villa and Everton.

          Oh, then both teams will get pretty much same :/

          Your draft is good but I'm afraid it won't have desired impact if he is also going to FH.

            Yeah similar thinking but imagine if the template FH team goes wild and I'm saving it for lottery 38, I wouldn't forgive myself!

        Kane Rich Vardy

        Thinking of dropping Vardy for Ings.

        On FH, thoughts?

          could always drop kane and have 3 doublers up front

        Not got son or Richarlison.

        A) salah to son, pukki to richarlison
        B) Saka to ramsey, pukki to richarlison. (Keep salah, no son)

          Cash Digne VVD Mylo
          Son Coutinho Zaha
          Vardy Richa Kane

          Ramsdale, Gordon, Kules, Jonny

          Could go gordon over mylo / vvd to start, Coutinho for madders, Son for KDb - on a free hit so lots of options

            1) Laporte to Digne or Cash + Saka to Zaha
            2) Matip to Digne or Cash + Foden to Zaha ?

            Scheichel / Pickford

            AA Cancelo Laport Matip
            Gordon Foden Son Saka Salah
            Watking Richalison Nketiah
