It is definitely possible to bluff in freerolls but like everything else in poker, you should only be doing it under the right circumstances. If it's a multiway pot, bluffing is definitely a bad idea because at least one of them is going to call you, more often than not. If you choose to bluff in a multiway pot, then your best shot is to just shove because if you make a standard raise or re-raise they will call you a lot of the time. If the action is heads-up, then I think you can and should add bluffs into your game. I triple-barrel a lot in freerolls. Mind you, this only works if you and the villain are fairly deep. The key is to size your flop and turn bets in such a way that you have a good portion of your stack left behind. Again, it is definitely situation dependent.
For e.g-Most freeroll donks will call your bluff with A high on a J high board because well, they have an overcard and might luck out. However, if the turn and river don't bring an ace, they are likely to fold that hand.
