FPL Gameweek 30 Chip Strategy: Community XI

FPL Gameweek 30 Chip Strategy

Following this week’s announcement of unlimited transfers, the community are trying to make sense of the optimal FPL Gameweek 30 Chip Strategy.

There are plenty of options on the table for the FPL Gameweek 30 Chip Strategy, which bizarrely includes ignoring the unlimited transfers altogether and playing the Free Hit chip.


Ben Crellin always has chips in mind and he has explained the FPL Gameweek 30 chip strategy in this thread. The Free Hit chip is particularly confusing to understand, but managers ought to bear in mind that this is the final Double Gameweek of the season.


FPL Arrows put together a comprehensive list of all the chip combinations that could be considered for the season run-in and has expanded on each individual scenario in this article. It’s all hosted by the All About FPL team.


Bench Boost

FPL Hints is advocating the Bench Boost chip for his FPL Gamweek 30 chip strategy. With the potential to have 12 members of your squad playing twice, there’s high base points on offer. The Bench Boost chip certainly has the most potential and executing is far easier alongside unlimited transfers.

Free Hit

Playing the Free Hit chip in Gameweek 30 seems counter-productive, but it could be an effective strategy for some managers. Planet FPL discuss the value of this chip and how it should be executed. It’s a strategy that I’m looking to adopt for my own team.


Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy considers all of the chip strategies in his latest YouTube video, as well as helpful advice for any fantasy manager with no chips available. If you are struggling to put together a relevant draft, this is a great place to start.


Fantasy Football Pundits ran a Twitter poll earlier this week to gauge the mood of the fantasy community. It seems that the vast majority of managers in the fantasy football community are planning to use their Bench Boost chip, although there’s plenty of variety.



Regardless of whether you plan to play a Free Hit, or Bench Boost with a view to wildcarding immediately, these statistics from Adam Hopcroft are particularly helpful for setting up your squad. Kevin De Bruyne is also tipped as the standout captain pick.



Finally, FPL General provides an important warning for fantasy managers as we tinker with our teams. While we do have unlimited transfers, team value can still be lost by transferring current players in and out of your original squad if you decide to stick with them. Be warned!
