This time last year, I entered the later part of the FPL season with all but my Triple Captain Chip. This year, I’ve done one better and have held that TC to go around with allotted second Wild Card, Bench Boost and Free Hit chips. FPL managers continue to watch and wait to see where the blank games will fit into the congested Premier League schedule. This is when the insight and percentages of Ben Crellin come into play.

Using data compiled by Ben Crellin, fantasy managers are provided statistical analysis and probability of what teams will be without a fixture in Gameweek 31/35.
