In another excellent thread from FPL Corf, early thoughts are shared about the potential Free Hit chip. The themes in this one surround the shield picks, differentials and budget enablers.

We are still a while away from the end of GW37 but those of us using the FH chip in 38 will no doubt be tinkering through the GW..
Here's my early thinking

One focus for the Gameweek 38 Free Hit will be in defence, with the potential to stack three players from one side for a clean sheet. Burnley are top of the agenda for Bakar, with Golden Glove potential.
Double/Triple Burnley defence in GW38+ could be gold 👀 https://t.co/Czfd2X4wJt

FPL Hindsight provides a word of warning for anyone activating the chip this week, that chasing the narrative doesn’t always work out. David Silva has been a popular target for the transfers in.

The headline fixture this week has to be Manchester City against Norwich, but we anticipate being subjected to yet more Pep rotation. There’s rumours that FPL Scarface might have a leak for us.
Thank you for the very warm welcome to the community this past week. Truly humbled that 8,000 of you have started following since Saturday! #FPL
Many of you have asked about GW38 so to clarify I will try to share City vs Norwich if possible but unlikely to share any others! pic.twitter.com/beube8hmlG

In the latest episode of the Always Cheating podcast, there’s some interesting discussion and justification for Brandon’s Free Hit strategy. It’s certainly worth considering for anyone using this chip.
🔊 Pod #230: What can we expect from #GW38? Will CHE-WOL and LEI-MUN be defensive battles or goal fests? Will MCI and LIV be on the beach? And is ARS really viable? Plus we discuss Brandon's Free Hit strategy. #FPL 🎧 Listen now! ⤵️ Presented by @manscaped https://t.co/NsV9j9401m

Brandon Williams has become an excellent enabler this week as the cheapest player in the game right now. The only problem with including him in your Free Hit squad is that he takes up a valuable Manchester United slot.

Finally, FPL Strategic advises against making wholesale changes with the Free Hit in a bid to move up the rankings. There will be some players currently in your side that ought to be held onto in the final gameweek.
Just because you CAN change every player in your team, doesn’t mean that you SHOULD.
