The teams that have scored the most points in Sky Sports Fantasy in 2020/21 so far

Picking the right blend of individuals is paramount, but which teams are the biggest hitters in the Premier League when it comes to Sky Sports Fantasy Football points?

Along with player trends, form and fixtures, the league table of Fantasy Football points accrued team-by-team(above) can also be a clear indication of where you may want to recruit coming out of the Overhaul period.

That, of course, ends at 12:30pm on Saturday 17 October, with kick-off in the Merseyside derby between table-toppers Everton and champions Liverpool marking the end of the unlimited transfers.

There have been goals galore in the 2020/21 season so far with no signs of that particular trend stopping. Some noticeable numbers can be taken out of the Fantasy points table, which throws up some surprises at the bottom end as well as the top.

State of Play

There is a strong correlation with the teams who have scored in abundance and its correspondence to Fantasy Football points. The top two are unchanged in relation to the Premier League table, with Everton, Aston Villa, Tottenham and Leicester making up the top four. Three of those sides have plundered 12 league goals, with Villa scoring 11, adhering to the pattern.

Everton are flying high at the top with 260 points, thanks largely to the sublime starts from Dominic Calvert-Lewin (47) and marquee-signing James Rodriguez (40). Aside from these two, eight other Everton players have hit double figures for the year, proving collectively why Everton are ahead of the rest and could be a worthy avenue to venture down for assets post-Overhaul.

Aston Villa’s 7-2 hammering of Liverpool did not only maintain their 100 per cent record, but it rewarded a heap of Fantasy Football managers who risked having those players within their side. No risk, no reward. This tallied a total of 88 points, with Ollie Watkins and Jack Grealish posting 26 and 25 respectively.

It is a tale of two opposites at the top and foot of the table. Spurs thumped Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford before the international break and that game alone threw up some key insights.

Tottenham racked up a hefty 95 Fantasy points in their win, which is more than Manchester United have accumulated all season, showing just how bad their start has been. Harry Kane and Son Heung-min scored 37 between them to sink Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Speaking of which, their measly 86 Fantasy Football points puts Manchester United in the relegation places, just one spot ahead of Burnley. Unsurprisingly, 25 of these have come from Bruno Fernandes, who drove Manchester United to third last term having signed from Sporting Lisbon in January. But so far both of his goals have come from the penalty spot and aside from that Man United have mustered just three goals from open play, one of which was an own-goal.

Burnley have notched just three goals for the campaign, while Sheffield United have just the solitary goal to their name, highlighting why they take up the additional two relegation spots. Goals mean points, but so do clean sheets, and these sides have failed to register one between them this term.

The importance of defensive solidity can be emphasised in the case of Wolves, who have had an inconsistent start but have managed to keep two clean sheets out of a possible four. Due to this, Wolves defenders have earned 93 points alone from fixtures against Sheffield United and Fulham, showing how effective those bonus points from the backline can be, as well as how important it is to choose your defensive assets wisely.

If the first batch of Premier League games are anything to go by, then it would be worth investing some time into the fixtures which some of the form sides have in the weeks to come, and making that call as to whether you would back the players who make your XI to deliver for a sustained period of time. 

Transfer Trends

Numerous drafts, debates and transfers will have taken place over the past week or so, but we are now at the business end of the international break.

Many players have been performing superbly, with others perhaps going under the radar, but who has been winning the race to be the most transferred in player during the Overhaul period?

Grealish has further enhanced his image and selection within Fantasy Football teams off the back of his role in England’s win over Wales on international duty. Aston Villa face Leeds, Southampton, Brighton and West Ham in their next six, so with that in mind, it may not be surprising to see Grealish at the top of the pile.

In relation to the top point scorers in both Everton and Tottenham’s side, Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin, Son and Kane make up the rest of the top five players transferred in. Everton do have a Merseyside derby on their hands, followed by matches with Southampton and Newcastle, but with Liverpool conceding seven to Villa, do fixtures now play as much of an important role as they once did?

They must do for some Fantasy Football managers, with Tottenham facing West Ham, Burnley, Brighton and West Brom in their next four outings. Even when are you not focusing specifically on fixtures, these are ones which scream points from a Spurs asset’s perspective. Son, Kane, and dare we say Gareth Bale could prove invaluable during this period.

    Has KDB > Son suddenly become the right FT move over Forden > Son?!

    KDB to Sterling for a hit or just play Mitchell or Ayling?

    KDB+Ings to Son+Kane(c)(-4) easy peasy.

    Would you ship KdB for Sterling (-4)? Got Lamptey also in my starting XI and he is also a doubt. My bench is: Mitchell, Burke, KWP.

    Thanks..

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Lamptey is fine I think reading into Roy's press conference. I wouldn't get a City asset as KDB replacement as I think KDB's absence makes the rest of them slightly worse options.

    2. Sir Alex Telles.
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Not interested in city players right now with KDB out and no striker.

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Sterling appeals less with KDB out.

  9. Tsparkes10

    Really unsure what to do :/? 1FT 2.9itb

    McCarthy
    TAA Doh Mitchell
    Kdb Barnes Podence Jamez
    Werner Ings DCL
    (Nyland, Egan, KWP, Burke)

    Tempted by KDB, Burke to Son, Grealish? (-4) Maybe Werner to Kane aswell

  10. Lev Yashin
    • 8 Years

    Just need a sub-5.0m defender to finish off my WC....

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Dallas or Lamptey (if you don't have him already)

      1. Lev Yashin
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Probably go Lamptey despite his flag. Cheers.

  11. Stormbringer22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    KDB to Pulisic -4. Yay or Nay?

    1. Lev Yashin
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Did that move but I'm on a WC.

      Decent as any though.

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Thanks mate. On a WC, Pulisic is a must I think so if I am to take a hit regardless, Pulisic may very well be the way to go.

        1. OBAMA
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          dont really see how pulisic is a 'must' lol

  12. Oscarrr17

    Thoughts on my Wildcard team?
    Martinez
    Lamptey Robbo James
    Grealish Son Sterling Trossard Salah
    DCL Jiminez

    Steer Brewster Dallas Mitchell

    Any thoughts and feedback appreciated.

    1. Lev Yashin
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I'd look to get Kane in with an eye on switching to Kun.
      James also doesn't do it for me.

      1. Oscarrr17
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 19 days ago

        No city seems risky to me even given their current form, fully expect them to bounce back now Aguero is fit again.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Get Kane, ditch Sterling.

  13. GloryManUnited
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    So as I said yesterday I drunkenly activated my free hit two weeks ago. Yes, I know i am a fool. But now I may have fun with it and go KUN/Sterling with Brewster on the bench as cover? Thoughts?

    Literally just diving into my team so I am in the thick of it. Lol All help is appreciated...!!!!

    1. Oscarrr17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Love the thought of city double up but maybe wait and see over next 5 how they play instead of risking the double. They do play arsenal liverpool and spurs over the next 5 so maybe Son or Kane would be better?

      1. GloryManUnited
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Its for one week...I just said its a free hit? LOL

        1. Oscarrr17
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Apologies apparently I cannot read! Big fan of the double up for free hit if Pep says Aguero is fit.

  14. FC Hakkebøf
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Missed Lampard's press conference. Any news on Chilwell and Pulisic?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Both are in the squad. See the FFS twitter feed further up the page.

    2. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Both in squad and fit to play he said

  15. JONALDINHO
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on this WC? Pretty set on it

    Martinez
    Robertson • Semedo • Dallas
    Salah • Sterling • Son • James
    DCL • Maupay • Watkins.
    (4.0 / KWP / Masuaku / 4.5).

    Have 0.5ITB for easy swaps over the next few weeks

    1. Oscarrr17
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Trossard and Brewster over Maupay and 4.5?

      1. JONALDINHO
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Trossard over Maupay?

  16. Giggs Boson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    " I don’t think [Kevin’s injury] is much but he will be out for the next games I think."

    Annoyingly vague, I think. I wouldn't mind benching him for 1 GW...

    1. JONALDINHO
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Easy transfer even for a hit. Next few games are tough with many away from home. KDB only hauls at home typically

    2. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Typical Pep! I’m thinking the same. Would have stuck it out but prospect of more games out makes me want to take -4

    3. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      If I knew it was only going to be 1 week, then fair enough. However, that "games" plural makes me nervous. I think a KDB to Pulisic -4 is on the cards for me...

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        They play Porto on Wednesday. So the plural could have just included that game too.

  17. Sir Alex Telles.
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Will Puli start. Someone on the previous post implied that he won't.

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I think he will. I think Lampard likes him as he brings that Hazard 'unknown' element to the team.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Ideally Lampard would like to start him asap but Southampton game might not be best for him.

    Ancelotti on Rodriguez and Mina: "They came back yesterday. We will see tomorrow. We will use this period to recover them well."

    1. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Pretty sure they'll play

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Also most other internationals came back yesterday too, don't understand what the big deal is with those. They had a longer flight but they played earlier than most others.

  19. Rinseboy
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Whos benching KDB this week?
    I'm tempted with Brewster currently on the bench?

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Probably would if I had Brewster to come in.

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      If you have Brewster yes - give it another week

      1. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        cheers bro

    3. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Brewster is my only viable sub, so not willing to risk it given that my Podence may not even play...

  20. Tonyawesome69
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 19 days ago

    With KDB out and too early for Aguero to start, surely that makes City assets unappealing.

    KDB out -4:
    1. Pulisic
    2. Mane
    3. Grealish

    1. Sir Alex Telles.
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I'm looking at Mane for safety and Bale(c) for a punt.

  21. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is Sterling the answer?

    1. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      What's the question?

      1. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Who to get for KDB 🙂

        1. COK3Y5MURF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          No, KDB out reduces Sterling's appeal.

  22. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Soyuncu Out, Evans Doubt, Praet Doubt, Vardy Doubt (calf), Morgan back problem but should be ok, Amartey out for several weeks... Fofana expected to make debut.

    1. Holmes

      Fofana, nice name

    2. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Wow, i should probably get Grealish..

    3. Sleep Talk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      So KDB to Grealish then?

  23. ZeBestee
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    So with Kdb out, is Foden an easier keep?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      yes, doesnt guarantee points though 😀

    2. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      He will start and get 2 points as always

  24. Kabayan
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    -4 already.
    Bench : Mitchell and Lamptey.
    Another -4 : KDB to Salah.
    Yes or No?

    1. fpork
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Yes! For Salah I would do it 100%.

    2. adams_6
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Definitely

  25. RED_ARMY
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    KDB + Mitro to Grealish + Kane for -4?

    1. adams_6
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Hmmm, you're tempting me to do the same. Was just going to do KDB- son..

    Who would you sell out of Werner or Ward-Prowse

    1. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      if you've kept Werner all this time you might as well hang on one more week, maybe 4 weeks. Pulisic and Ziyech back should see Werner played where he should be - through the centre.

  27. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    KDB to Pulisic would let me do Jiménez to Kane for hit ( got Son)

    A Just do KDB to Pulisic
    B Take hit for Kane over Jiménez also

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year

    Any news on Sterling?

  29. Bank$y
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Someone please explain the KDB panic. Is he out? If so how long?

    1. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      It's my guess that it's not serious and Pep is holding him back for the midweek Champions League game.

      FPL Panic = Knee Jerk Society

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        There is nothing kneejerk about selling a player who has been confirmed to be out for the next game especially when it's not certain when he'll be back and the player costs 11.6.

        1. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          You'll want him back soon enough. If you've got no other issues then go for it, especially if you haven't got Son.

        2. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Am changing my mind on this... Pep said next gameS. Could mean Arsenal and CL but could of course be next weekend as well.

      I'm just going to do A.

      I'm not convinced we'll see Spurs go mad in the next two fixtures.
