The Scout's panel of Fantasy Premier League experts are revealing when they plan to use their chips over the rest of the season.

The experts all Triple-Captained Erling Haaland (£14.3m) in Double Gameweek 25, before using their Free Hit in either Blank Gameweek 29 or Double Gameweek 34, leaving the majority with two chips left to play: Wildcard and Bench Boost.

WC = Wildcard, BB = Bench Boost

What the experts say

I'm currently on Wildcard this week to set myself up for the final Gameweeks. The plan is to invest heavily in Spurs and Chelsea for their Double Gameweek 35 (DGW35) and prepare my team for a Bench Boost in Double Gameweek 37 (DGW37).

My team was massively behind the curve in Gameweek 30 and I had to Wildcard then. I loaded up on Manchester United with a view to Bench-Boosting them in DGW37.

I Wildcarded in Gameweek 31 and set my team up for a Bench Boost in DGW37.

Gianni Buttice (@GianniButtice)

I was waiting to see when the Chelsea and Spurs fixture was rescheduled for. Now that we know that it's in DGW35, I will use my Wildcard then and my Bench Boost in DGW37.

I’m Wildcarding this week with the aim of targeting the two remaining doubles in DGW35 and DGW37. I'm building towards a Bench Boost in DGW37.

Sam Bonfield (@FPLFamily)

I Wildcarded a couple of weeks ago to set my team up for the run-in. I have three Chelsea players, plus Son Heung-min (£9.8m) from Spurs, ready for their DGW35. I also have a Bench-Boost squad of seven doublers so far for DGW37. The Bench Boost in DGW37 is risky though, with the threat of rotation so close to the end of the season. 

Pras (@Pras_FPL)

My Wildcard chip is currently active ahead of DGW35. I'm planning to use my final chip, the Bench Boost, in DGW37.
