FPL GW36 Tips

There are just three more opportunities to do something about our ranking and mini-league positions in Fantasy Premier League. Last three gameweeks – 2 double gameweeks and one very crazy single gameweek.

And if you still have some chips left.. you might want to use them.

But first, let’s jump to our FPL GW36 Tips.

Key notes for FPL Double gameweek 36

Let’s start with our key notes for DGW36 of FPL.

  • If you still have free hit and face a dilemma whether to use it now or in GW37, our advice is: use it now. Free hit team full of Manchetser City, Liverpool and Spurs players will do better than free hit team full of Crystal Palace, Everton and Aston Villa players
  • if you still have your triple captain left, use it now (Salah, Kane, KdB) or save it for GW38 – where we should see a lot of goals as usually
  • Top transfer targets for GW36: Richarlison, Coutinho
