Some of the world's top Fantasy managers on when to Wildcard, Bench Boost, Free Hit and Triple Captain

The recent rescheduling of more fixtures has given managers in Fantasy Premier League much to consider when planning their transfers ahead of the Gameweek 31 deadline of 11:00 BST on Saturday 2 April.

The Scout’s panel of experts discuss what chips they plan to use in order to navigate the schedule between now and the end of 2021/22 Fantasy.

What the experts say

I still have a lot of chips to play - the second Wildcard, second Free Hit and the Bench Boost and only a possible eight Gameweeks to play them. I'm looking to Wildcard in Gameweek 34 and then use the Bench Boost/Free Hit in Gameweeks 36/37 depending on how the nine outstanding fixtures are rearranged.

I only have one Free Hit chip left and I'm currently looking to deploy it in Gameweek 36 or 37 based on how those Gameweeks shape up, given I already have three Arsenal players and one Leicester City player in place.

Having just played my Wildcard, I feel pretty set for Gameweek 31 and going forward - save maybe a Chelsea player or two. I've still got a Free Hit Chip in my back pocket, which I plan to use offensively in the coming weeks, possibly in Gameweek 33, where there's likely to be another decent looking Double Gameweek.

I hit the Wildcard button as soon as Gameweek 30 passed with a view to playing my Bench Boost chip in Double Gameweek 33. I also have a Free Hit chip remaining which I will play when the other postponed fixtures get rearranged. I'm also not against playing it in Gameweek 38 as I did a couple of seasons ago, when I used it most successfully!

I've only got my Bench Boost chip left. I'll be keeping an open mind on when to use it, but it'll likely be something I build towards using free transfers once the final fixture schedule is known.
