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.
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.
