Chip strategy has been all the talk of the Fantasy community over the last week.
The results of the FA Cup fifth-round ties would have firmed up the approaches of some Fantasy managers towards the Free Hit, Bench Boost, Triple Captain and Wildcard chips - though caused uncertainty among others.
With Joe away on a mid-season break, David, Az and Luke share their thoughts on how to navigate Blank Gameweeks 31 and 33 and how they plan to capitalise on the likely Double Gameweeks of 32 and 35.
Our trio of Scoutcasters also examine the options available to Fantasy managers who have used one or more of their chips already.
One player who will be particularly affected by the Blanks and Doubles is Sergio Aguero, so Luke, Az and David discuss whether ditching the Argentinean striker - or performing the "hokey cokey" with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - remains a viable option given how in form the premium Manchester City forward is.
Continuing their discussion on the Blank Gameweeks, our panel muse on whether any out-of-sorts Chelsea assets are worthy of consideration given that the Blues are now guaranteed a fixture in Gameweeks 31 and 33.
The crew then finish off with a detailed look at their Gameweek 27 transfer moves, captaincy decisions, differential picks and clean sheet prospects.
