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.

    Reece James a wasted pick now?

    1. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Maybe. Would be looking to get rid.

    2. Old Gregg

      it's a shame. He'll get games/mins but he's not nailed that's for sure.

      I don't know if I can be bothered to deal with the roulette he starts each weekend

    WC punt on Pulisic and Brewster or wait and see how they do?

    1. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I would wait and see how they look,

    Who is your captain this week?

    Was on Salah but with the KDB news I'm getting Kane in ( needed to sort out Martial as well ) so swapped the band to Harry.

    1. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Son atm, Salah vc.

  4. mattyb09

    Bottomed...

    With the KDB news I have gone ahead and avoided City altogether.

    RMT please!

    McCarthy
    Robbo Chilwell Lamptey
    Salah Son Pulisic Hamez Barnes
    Kane DCL

    Forster; Brewster, Mitchell, Branthwaite

    Best 3 Defenders on WC?

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Liv defender - Semedo/Saiss - Chilwell

  6. Von Lipwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    A) Robbo Lamptey Semedo (Ayling)
    B) Robbo Lamptey TAA (Mitchell)

    1. Bonus magnet
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A simply because of cash

      1. Von Lipwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I can afford both. But will Semedo do better than TAA? No way right?

        1. Bonus magnet
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          wrong way to look at it
          does robbo score more than taa should be the qsn and then choose one liv def

    2. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I wouldn’t double up on Liv defence with Alisson out. Other cheaper attacking options.

  7. sacana12
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Currently on WC and wondering about this:

    1.McGinn + Ings
    2.Maupay + Grealish

    1 or 2?

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      2

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      2

  8. MGD
    • 4 Years

    Foden decent on WC?

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Sure

    2. Turns
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      He has frustrated the hell out of me this season, but holding for next 2 now KDB is out (more nailed)

  9. Max City
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    A) KDB >> Son
    B) Wijnaldum Jimenez >> Son + 5.9m FWD (-4)
    C) Wijnaldum >> Trossard/Soucek

  10. Amey
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I'm getting sucked into Pulisc again 😕

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Same :/

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Why? Unlucky last season with him?

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Always gets injured !
        Feck that though. Like him as a player.
        Hopefully he'll come good and pay off the hit straight away

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Really wanted to do the KDB to Puli -4 move but Rains of Castamere below has made a valid point. Leaning more towards Grealish now... 🙁

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            What was the point?

            1. Stormbringer22
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 8 days ago

              That he is unlikely to play 90 minutes after a 12 week hammy injury. Maybe eased in over the next couple of games

              1. Amey
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 8 days ago

                He was fit for last GW actually iirc.
                Played few minutes.

                Though with his muscle injury record i agree

    3. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Same here, I .... must .... resist...

  11. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Captain:

    A) Salah (eve)
    B) Son (WHU)

    1. Dwotle

      B

    2. Rains of Castamere

      Salah! 🙂

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Salah

  12. ZeBestee
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Dallas or Ayling and why?

    Thanks

    1. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      After watching Leeds at Sheffield United, Dallas all day. He was everywhere.

    2. Ha.
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Dallas because his name is the same as a city on Texas

    3. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Dallas

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        More attacking, almost plays as a midfielder

  13. Rains of Castamere
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Forget the past, when eyeing up the next 4 GWs would you pick DCL or look at cheaper options such as Maupay and Watkins?

    1. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Dcl

    2. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Statistics put DCL ahead of Watkins. It's very tight between DCL and Maupay, though. BRI have better fixtures on paper as well. If you think you can use the money well then Maupay is definitely an option.

  14. Ha.
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    How's she looking?

    Martinez
    Chillwell, Castagne, Lamptey
    Grealish, Salah, Son (c), Rodriguez
    Kane, DCL, Wilson

    McCarthy Mitchell, Justin, Bissouma

    1. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      No City options. That might hurt you

      1. Ha.
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        None really appealing at the moment; KDB or no-one

  15. Holteenderinthesky
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Hows this WC looking? 0.1 ITB

    Mccarthy
    Semedo, Chilwell, Targett, (Lewis, 3.9)
    Salah, Sterling, Son, Mahrez, Pulisic
    DCL, Brewster, (Wilson)

    1. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Mega mid and think attack. Maybe try to balance it a little bit?

      1. Holteenderinthesky
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I think the midfield is where the big points are. Wilson and DCL are both looking good enough cover upfront. Brewster being my cheap 4.5 mid most go with

        1. baines is god
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Like it. Only think maybe move Semedo to Coady then upgrade a 3.9 defender or Lewis

          1. Holteenderinthesky
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Problem with Coady is your always relying on a clean sheet. He offers nothing going forward. Could gamble on Telles

  16. DIMITRIS
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Hi guys , I need help. Team looks like this:
    Martinez (Forster)
    TAA - James - Saiss - Lamptey (Mitchell)
    Barnes - KDB - Sterling - Hamez (Burke)
    Werner - Jimenez (Davis)
    0.6 ITB
    What's the best option to replace KDB and Burke?
    Son + one of these:
    A) Trossard
    B) Grealish
    C) Zaha
    Or do you think ther's a better move for me?

    1. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Grealish

  17. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Martinez + 4.0
    or
    Martinez + Ryan rotation

    on WC

    1. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Martinez + 4.0 imo

    2. Ha.
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Martinez and Ryan

    3. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I have Mart & Ryan, would probably go with 4.0

  18. seanie3
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    On a WC, should I take Wilson out for Watkins (already have grealish) if it meant I could then get TAA instead of Robertson

    a) yay
    b) nay

    1. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      nay

    2. Ha.
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      B

  19. DOGS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Best Midfielder around 5.9m

    Thinking:

    A-McGinn
    B-Barkly
    C-Klich
    D- ASM

    currently have podence

    1. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      B

    2. WALOR
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      B or C

    3. Turns
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I went McGinn. Rotating with Podence

  20. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Would you sell kdb for a hit ? And for who ? Fernandes ? Thanks

    1. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      For Son or Bruno

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Cheers.

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'm going for Pulisic.
      Bruno is great option but not sure about United atm

  21. Rains of Castamere
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Even if Pulisic starts, I can't see him getting more than 65-70 mins after a 12-week hamstring injury.

    It's a wait-and-see for me.

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Good point. I hate it when people make good points that shake my resolve in what I had already planned to do! 😀

    2. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      60 minutes is more then enough for Pulisic to haul

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Agree and he only played 7 mins before IB.

  22. WALOR
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    For draft team:
    Costa
    or
    Thiago Alcantara?

    1. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Alcantara

      1. WALOR
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        cheers, that's where I stand, just Costa so tempting

        1. DIMITRIS
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I just think that Alcantara is with KDB best midfielder in the world. No-brainer

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Costa

  23. Eastman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Any update on Sterling injury?

    1. Dwotle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Likely fit for Arsenal.

  24. Lord Bendtner

  25. -GK22-
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Is bale likely to feature against West Ham. Maybe a sneaky punt to replace KDB

    1. Turns
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Mou playing games at the presser today, but I think he starts. Decent punt imo

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Can see him coming off the bench. Not sure he starts

    3. Ha.
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I think he starts - Mou downplaying it as 'the team' is most important

  26. BarryManilows
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Which one to choose for the long run Ings or pulisic?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Ings - a lot of football for Chelsea coming up

    • Turns
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      How am I looking chaps?

      Ryan
      Robbo - Saiss - James
      Salah - Son - Foden - Podence
      Kane(C) - Werner - DCL
      ------
      4.0 - McGinn - Justin - Mitchell

      1. Kay317
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Think I'd play McGinn over Podence. More assured of game time and looks like a more dangerous player at the mo imo.

        1. Turns
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Cheers mate - thinking that myself.

      2. Lord Bendtner
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Podence is overrated IMO. I fancy McGinn, Neto or Trossard over him.

    • Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Would you take another -4 to switch KDB to someone like Pulisic or Sterling?

          Cheers. I'm salah at the mo. Seem to always get cap choice wrong though so you should probably do the opposite!

        No real problems if Pulisic stays healthy

      Being on a -8 and having some players who I don't really want to lose but could be upgraded slightly isn't reason enough to WC, is it?
