GW37 Free Hit Teams – Draft 1
This is our first GW37 free hit draft and in this free hit team, we’ve tried to go for a team that is balanced. This team has a good mix of double and single gameweek players. We’ve also tried to avoid selecting players that are a huge rotation risk and that’s why the likes of De Brunye, Grealish, Stones and Gundogan aren’t here.
Due to Manchester City’s participation in the UEFA Champions League and the possibility of winning the league this weekend, their players come with significant risk. It is highly likely that in the second match of their double gameweek in Gameweek 37, Pep Guardiola will field an entirely different team through rotation.
In order to stay clear of this, we’ve decided to go with single gameweek players that still have something to play for this gameweek, hence why we have Liverpool assets in our free hit team.

Here are some questions asked about this draft and the reply that was provided by the creators of the free hit team:
In regards to managers who want Rashford if he’s declared “fit” you can swap either Grealish/Gundogan ➡️ Rashford 👍
•If you worry Ferguson’s minutes you can swap him & Gallagher ➡️ Mac Allister & Greenwood.
Question: I need to know why you think Grealish will get the minutes. I Got him but I’m considering selling due to his managed minutes.
Answer: If Man City reaches the final of the champions league swap him to Bruno/rashy if he’s fit. If they are out keep him I believe Pep will go strong in the prem if they are out of the competition.
Question: De Bruyne?
Answer: if city are in champions league final then no as he might get rotated but if they get knocked out then yeah you could get him.
Question: No Bruno???
Answer: you can swap him for Grealish/Gundo.
