Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make a transfer then use Free Hit?

You will be back to the usual one free transfer for the following Gameweek. Also, if you use your free transfer and then subsequently decide to play the Free Hit chip, you will lose the initial signing you made.

When should I use my Free Hit?

When should I use my Free Hit? Many top FPL managers use the Free Hit to navigate blank gameweeks. A blank gameweek in FPL is caused by the rearrangement of fixtures due to other cup competitions.
