Gameweek 7 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 7 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?

Luton and Burnley sit at the top of the fixture ticker this week as they both have a double Gameweek.

Everton, West Ham, and Newcastle all also rank amongst the top five teams with the easiest fixtures this week.

Who has the worst fixtures?

Wolves, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth, Tottenham and Liverpool all rank amongst the bottom five teams with the toughest fixtures.

The 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 7:

Goalkeepers

  • Thomas Kaminski (£4.5m) – Luton sit at the top of the fixture ticker this week with a double Gameweek. One of the most reliable ways into the backline is Kaminski who although is yet to return this season has two attempts at points.
  • Matt Turner (£4m) – Even after signing a new goalkeeper Nottingham Forest are still giving Turner the number one role. He enables money elsewhere within the side but is unlikely to feature off the bench.

Defenders

  • Issa Kabore (£4m) – Luton face Everton and Burnley in their double Gameweek. Another great way to pile up on double Gameweek players is with Kabore. The Hatters play with a back-three system which allows wing back Kabore into the most advanced positions on the pitch. He also picked up an assist in the last match.
  • Pervis Estupinan (£5.3m) – Brighton have a tough-on-paper match against Aston Villa and they are yet to keep a clean sheet. That may be the case but Estupinan offers so much going forward. In fact, so far amongst defenders he ranks joint second best for chances created (13) and the best for big chances created (four).
  • Kieran Trippier (£6.6m) – May have had a slow start to the season but the full-back is starting to produce attacking data similar to last season. He amassed a huge 18 points in his latest match after registering three assists. He has also created more chances than any other defender this season (17).
  • Manual Akanji (£5m) – Manchester City are maintaining some great defensive data and Akanji has started in all but one of their league matches so far this season. He will sit as a great first option on the bench.
  • Sven Botman (£4.7m) – Newcastle produced some great defensive stats last season and the finally look like they are getting close to that form again. In fact, in all of the last three matches in all competitions they have kept clean sheets. Because of that Botman gets his inclusion but on the bench.

Midfielders

  • Bukayo Saka (£8.7m) – Arsenal face a Bournemouth side whom sit in the worst six teams for several key defensive data points. The standout option from the Arsenal attack is Saka who takes his sides penalties and who has picked up four goals and four assists in all competitions so far this season.
  • Phil Foden (£7.6m) – Wolves sit joint third worst for big chances conceded (21) so far. One way into the relentless Manchester City attack, other than the obvious is Foden who has picked up a return in four of his first six matches.
  • Bryan Mbeumo (£6.9m) – Brentford and Mbeumo may have hit a mini-slump recently but both have still proved efficient goal scorers this campaign. Mbeumo takes the Bees penalties and has also had more big chances total than any other midfielder in the game.
  • Kaoru Mitoma (£6.6m) – Aston Villa could be a tough match but they rank joint third worst for big chances conceded (21) which suggests they are a team to target. In addition Brighton have also netted more goals than any other player in the division. Their standout attacker is Mitoma who scored two goals in his latest match.
  • Jarrod Bowen (£7.1m) – Sheffield United have conceded more goals than any other side (17). Because of that and the fact he has banked four returns in his first six matches, Bowen could be a very wise decision.

Forwards

  • Erling Halaand (£14.1m) – Amongst all players in the league Haaland sits first for goals (eight), first for attempts on goal (31), the best for shots in the box (31) and the best for big chances total (15). His side also maintain some of the best offensive data in the league which makes him the standout captaincy pick as well.
  • Carlton Morris (£5.5m) – Morris has a great double Gameweek against Everton and Burnley, two teams struggling to keep clean sheets. Morris also takes his sides penalties and is the focal point to the Luton attack so could have big potential.
  • Cameron Archer (£4.5m) – Archer enables money elsewhere within the side and also leads the Sheffield United frontline.
