GW29 Free Hit: Top Player Picks for Your gameweek 29 Free Hit Team

GW29 free hit teams

GW29 is one of the most highly anticipated gameweeks of the FPL season, and for good reason – it’s a double gameweek for a staggering 12 teams! This means that there are plenty of opportunities to maximize your points and rise up the ranks.

One of the best ways to take advantage of this unique gameweek is to use the free hit chip, which allows you to build a brand-new team for that gameweek only.

With so many teams doubling up, it’s the perfect time to create a team full of doublers and really make your mark. In this article, we’ll be creating three GW29 free hit teams that would help serve as inspiration to you. So without further ado, let’s dive in!

Important things to keep in mind as you use your free hit in GW29

  • GW29 is a good time to use your free hit and that’s because it’d allow you to maximize your FPL points, as you can select a team filled up with doublers.
  • Keep in mind that while GW29 is a great time to use your free hit chip, there’s also a blank gameweek in GW32 where Man United, Man City, Brighton, and Chelsea will all be blanking. This makes GW32 another opportune time to use your free hit chip.
  • Man City and Arsenal don’t double this gameweek.
  • GW34 is another time when your free hit chip can be used as well. It is going to be a double gameweek for a few teams.

1. GW29 Free Hit teams – 3-4-3 formation

GW29 Free Hit teams - 3-4-3 formation

This is our first GW29 free hit team, and it’s looking pretty solid. We’ve got a team that looks great from the defense all the way to the attack. In this team, we’ve got full-backs that can deliver clean sheets and attacking returns, along with good fixtures to boot.

The midfield is a particularly strong part of this team, featuring some of the most in-form players in the game. We’ve brought in some heavy hitters, like Marcus Rashford, Mitoma, Bruno Fernandes, and a differential, in Harvey Barnes.

We’re counting on our midfield to deliver big points this gameweek. However, we should note that Mo Salah isn’t on this team, which could be a concern for some.

We agree that he’s a top-tier FPL asset, but we’ve opted for Bruno Fernandes instead due to his favorable fixtures. To make up for Salah’s absence, we’ve gone with Nunez up top.

The forward line is pretty standard, featuring Haaland, Toney, and Darwin – all capable of scoring goals this gameweek. Overall, we’re confident that this GW29 free hit team will perform well. Of course, it’s important to remember that this is just one potential team – take inspiration from our picks, but feel free to create your own unique team that best suits your strategy and style.

2. Gameweek 29 Free Hit team

Gameweek 29 Free Hit team

This is another GW29 free hit team, and to be honest, it’s quite similar to the one we created earlier. The only difference is that we’ve added some big names to the squad – Mo Salah, Isak, Saka, Mings, and Ben White.

To make room for these players, we had to take out Haaland, Barnes, Chilwell, and Neco Williams. Some people might get scared when a team is picked and Haaland isn’t in it, but we think it’s a good move for this gameweek.

Haaland doesn’t have a double, so going with players that do have a double can help maximize your points. Plus, with your free hit, you can take Haaland out just for this gameweek and replace him with a doubler.

We’re feeling pretty confident about this GW29 free hit team, and we think it has a good chance of doing well. Good luck with your own team!

This is our final GW29 free hit team and in this one, we’ve decided to put together a team of differentials. This is meant to help give you additional inspiration as you create your GW29 free hit team.

In this free hit draft, we’ve selected players that have good fixtures, are on form and players that would deliver FPL points. Our differential GW29 free hit team is currently projected to return 100 points this gameweek. We’d go with this team, just to see how well it actually does.
