Gameweek 29 Free Hit Draft


Mark Flekken

Burnley have the worst attacking record among the 8 active teams in GW29 having scored the second least goals in the league. Only Sheffield United have scored less. In the reverse fixture, Flekken kept a cleansheet and was only required to make one save over 90 minutes.


Sergio Reguilón

Reguilón is likely to be fit for GW29. He is currently on set-piece duty taking some of the corners and freekicks. Playing as a wingback has allowed him freedom to make forward runs and create chances from the left flank.

Alfie Doughty

Doughty`s attacking stats at home have been impressive. He has created 41 chances which is the highest among all defenders on home soil. He also shares set-piece duties from corners and freekicks. This is important as Luton are the 4th best team on set-pieces as they have scored 12 times from set-plays this season.

Pedro Porro

Porro has an impressive 8 assists, only Trippier has more assists among defenders this season. According to, Spurs do tend to favor the right side when building on their attack with 38% of attacks coming from the right side of the pitch which favours Porro.


Son Heung-Min

With the absence of Richarlison, Son is likely to continue playing as the main striker a role which has favored him all season. Son is the designated penalty taker for spurs and also shares some set-piece duties on corners and freekicks. With an impressive 14 goals and 8 assists and 2 goals, 2 assists over the last 2 matches, he is a big asset to own in GW 29.

Jarrod Bowen

Westham play Aston Villa at home. Villa have failed to keep a cleansheet over the last 5 matches which favours Bowen who is Westham`s biggest attacking threat. He is the second highest goal-scoring midfielder only behind Salah. He is also on set-piece duty taking corners and freekicks.

James Maddison

Since his return from injury, Maddison has had 4 returns from his last 6 fixtures. Fulham have only kept one cleansheet over the last 6 fixtures.

Anthony Elanga

At 2.1% ownership, Elanga could prove to be a great differential. In the reverse fixture, Elanga picked a 9 pointer after coming out with 2 assists.


Rodrigo Muniz

Since GW 18 Spurs have only kept one cleansheet. They now face Muniz who is on form after scoring 5 goals in the last six matches hauling twice. Muniz has scored in his last 3 home fixtures as they welcome Spurs to Craven Cottage who could be without Van De Ven.

Ivan Toney

At only 9.5% ownership, Toney could also be a great differential. He is the main penalty taker for Brentford and faces the second worst defence in the league (Burnley).

Ollie Watkins

Watkin`s away form has been exceptional making double figure returns for his owners over the last 3 away games. He is away to Westham but going with recent form that shouldn`t be a problem for him. Out of all active players for GW29, Watkins has the highest xGI of 4.84 over the last 6 matches according to
