Gameweek 22 Best Free Hit Team

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 22 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.

Fixtures

Who has the best fixtures?

Crystal Palace, Manchester City, Brighton, Fulham and West Ham all rank in the top five teams with the easiest fixtures.

Who has the worst fixtures?

Chelsea, Burnley, Newcastle, Nottingham Forest and Brentford all rank in the bottom five teams with the toughest fixtures.

Gameweek 22 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 22:

Goalkeepers

Arsenal rank as one of the best defences in the league and goalkeepers have been an issue as of late. Taking that into account we could opt for David Raya (£4.9m) who has great clean sheet potential going into the new round. Backing him up is Alphonse Areola (£4.2m) who continues to start between the sticks for West Ham.

Defenders

Manchester City come up against one of the worst frontlines in league next up. One of the safest route into the defence in terms of minutes is Kyle Walker (£5.4m) who recently created an assist.

Tottenham’ Pedro Porro (£5.8m) has become one of the most consistent assets in the game recently. In fact, Porro has racked up at least one return in a huge seven of his last 10 games. Porro also dominates a lot of the key offensive metrics amongst all forwards.

Brighton have a great fixture against Luton next up. The Hatters have improved recently but they still rank as one of the worst attacks in the league according to underlying data. Whether the clean sheet is there or not Pervis Estupinan (£5.1m) offers other routes to points – scoring in two of his last three matches.

On the bench is centre-back Gabriel (£5m) who scored, created an assist and kept a clean sheet in his latest match. Joining Gabriel is Joachim Anderson (£4.9m) who faces Sheffield United.

Midfielders

Manchester City remain the leagues biggest scorers so investing in their attack against an awful Burnley defence is a must. With the lack of premium options and his scintillating return to form Kevin De Bruyne (£10.5m) could be a fantastic option.

Bukayo Saka (£9.1m) may have frustrated owners recently but Arsenal look back to their best after demolishing Crystal Palace 5-0 recently. Saka remains the standout option in the Arsenal attack and he is also on penalties which is a bonus.

West Ham face a Bournemouth side who rank third worst in the league for goals conceded. Targeting the Cherries could be a wise move and there is no better West Ham option to do that with than Jarrod Bowen (£8.1m). Bowen has been brilliant this season – returning in 12 of his matches.

Tottenham are maintaining some of the best attacking stats in the league this season. Because of this investing in their attack looks straight forward with Brentford up next. Leading the effective Tottenham attack is Richarlison (£7m). The Brazilian has returned at least once in five of his last six league matches.

Sheffield United remain as one of the worst defences in the league and Crystal Palace will be looking to bounce back. The Crystal Palace talisman is Eberechi Eze (£6m). Eze takes set pieces, penalties and is their most potent attacker in terms of non-penalty expected goal involvement.

Forwards

At the time of writing Erling Haaland (£13.9m) is yet to recover fully from his recent injury. As a placeholder follow Manchester City striker Julian Alvarez (£7m) will keep his place warm in the team. Alvarez has been leading the Manchester City attack in the absence of Haaland but is also on penalty duty too.

Newcastle have been conceding some of the worst underlying defence data recently. With that in mind it could be difficult to leave out Ollie Watkins (£8.9m) who has been one of the most consistent assets in the game this campaign.

Brighton penalty taker Joao Pedro (£5.4m) could be an excellent first sub off the bench if needed. Pedro ranks joint top for goals and assists at Brighton this season and plays Luton next up.
