FPL Chips offer a great chance to earn more points in Fantasy Premier League, but you need to learn how to use these better than anyone else.
Fantasy Premier League is back for the 2018/19 season and there are no significant rule changes to the game ahead of the new campaign. This means that the three chips available to managers have been retained.
- Triple Captain
- Bench Boost
- Free Hit
Through the course of the article, I will be sharing my thoughts on the best time to use these chips for maximum FPL gains, But before we go any further, here are some acronyms that FPL managers need to familiarize themselves with:
- DGW (Double gameweek) – A double gameweek arises when a team has had a fixture postponed due to weather or involvement in domestic competitions. In this situation, the player from the respective team will have two fixtures that gameweek instead of one, which means he effectively has two chances to earn you FPL points.
- BGW (Blank gameweek) – A blank gameweek is when certain teams do not have a fixture for that gameweek due to their or their opponent’s involvement in domestic cup competitions, such as the League Cup final or the FA Cup quarter-finals.
Keeping the above in mind, let’s start analyzing the best deployment tactics for the three chips mentioned above. Do note that you can only play each chip once, and you cannot play more than one chip in the same gameweek. They also cannot be used the same week as your wildcards.
