I’ve finally played my first chip of the season: Free Hit. I was skeptical about this new weapon and wasn’t sure when the right time would be to use it. It rightly took the place of the utterly disappointing All-Out-Attack chip, which allowed managers to field only two defenders (most of the FPL Community found it useless and actually worse than fielding a back three).
When would be the best time to play the Free Hit chip though? In a blank or double Gameweek?
In Gameweek 31, only 8 clubs are playing. Deciding who to play is proving difficult for many FPL managers. Other than Liverpool, the clubs playing are mediocre, and you probably don’t have many of their players in your FPL squad. Using the FPL chip now means you’re able to bring in a select 11 who are in form and among the few playing this Gameweek. You will also most likely be guaranteed a green arrow for your overall FPL rank.
A double Gameweek (DGW) is fast approaching too. If you’ve already spent your second Wildcard, the DGW may be a better option for you. Waiting to use the Free Hit for it will allow you to have a starting 11 who will reap two games’ worth of points each.
Free Hit Rules:
- Activate and you’ll be able to make unlimited transfers for one Gameweek.
- After playing your Free Hit chip, at the next deadline your bank balance and squad is restored to as they were at the previous deadline, with any player price changes in the previous Gameweek reflected.
- Any change to your bank balance whilst the Free Hit chip was active will be lost.
