Gameweek 16 Best Free Hit Team

Last modified date

With a new Gameweek upon us we take a look at the free hit chip. Using the Fantasy Football Scout members area we can utilise the season ticker and underlying stats to determine the Gameweek 16 best free hit team.

The free hit chip in FPL allows managers, within the same budget and formational limits, to select a team for one particular Gameweek. Managers can attack any given Gameweek with the free hit whether that be to utilise a good set of fixtures, in-form teams or players or a mixture of it all.


Who has the best fixtures?

Manchester City, Wolves, Brighton, Manchester United and Brentford all rank in the top five teams with the easiest fixtures.

Who has the worst fixtures?

Luton, Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Tottenham and Crystal Palace rank in the bottom five teams with the toughest fixtures.

Gameweek 16 Best Free Hit Team

Using the Live FPL website we can use one of its fantastic tools to plan transfers weeks in advance. Not just this, but we can also create team drafts to plan for using a chip. Take a look at the best free hit team for Gameweek 16:


Brentford aren’t exactly the most solid team in the league from a defensive perspective but they face Sheffield United next. The Blades have the worst attack in the league statistically so Mark Flekken (£4.5m) could be a very good option between the sticks. Backing him up in the unlikely event Flekken does not feature is Martin Dubravka (£4m).


Liverpool meet with Crystal Palace next, a team really struggling for results. Because of that and Liverpool’ solid expected goals conceded data it could be beneficial to back Kostas Tsimikas (£4.9m). The left-back has created three assists in his last three games showing he has very good attacking potential.

Chelsea come up against an Everton side who sit in the worst four teams in the league in the last six matches for expected goals. The Blues most dangerous defender in terms of attacking potential is Reece James (£5.4m) who bagged 14 goal contributions in one of his most recent campaigns.

Newcastle may have Tottenham next up but they are joint best for cleans sheets so far with six. Kieran Trippier (£7m) hasn’t got just clean sheet potential. The full-back sits joint highest in the division amongst all players in the game for assists with seven.

Sitting first on the bench is Kyle Walker (£5.3m) who hast started the last seven matches for Manchester City. Joining him on the bench is Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles (£4.2m).


The game against Luton is too good of an opportunity to not double up on the Manchester City attack. With that in mind Phil Foden (£7.5m) who is in fine form – picking up a return in three of his last five league matches and starting nine of his sides last 10 could be a great addition.

Sheffield United are the team to target week in week out. The Blades are still conceding the worst defensive data in the division so targeting them with Bryan Mbeumo (£7.1m) is wise. Mbeumo has been excellent this season and he sits in the top four players for non-penalty expected goal involvement but also takes his sides penalties.

Liverpool are topping a lot of the key attacking metrics recently so it makes sense to invest. It makes even more sense to include their standout player Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) who has blanked just twice all season.

Chelsea have a great opportunity to convert some of their expected goals data this week (the Blues sit as one of the best teams in the league for that metric). Taking their penalties, coming in at a great price and being one of their most influential players recently makes Cole Palmer (£5.3m) a great pick.

Another brilliant budget enabling player this week could be Hwang Hee Chan (£5.7m). Wolves face a Nottingham Forest side who have conceded at least two goals in four of their last six league games. Hwang has bagged at least one return in 10 of his first 15 league matches.


The Liverpool frontline are that efficient at moment that doubling up on their attack could mean massive gains. The best way to do that could be with Darwin Nunez (£7.7m). Nunez faces a Crystal Palace side who have kept just one clean sheet in their last six matches.

Erling Haaland (£14m) isn’t just a great option this week but he is also the standout captaincy option. The Norwegian faces a poor Luton next and is a fantastic run of form.

Enabling the starting 11 is Sheffield United’ Cameron Archer (£4.6m) who is unlikely to feature this week.
