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.

    Rate my budget defence wildcard please:

    Guaita, (£4m)
    Chilwell, Semedo, Lamptey, (Justin, Mitchell)
    Salah, Son, Pulisic, Rodriguez, Grealish
    Kane, DCL (Brewster)

    Is Reguilon or Dias better than Semedo at £5.5m?

    1. Lord Bendtner
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Semedo is a great pick

      1. Arfaish
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah I think so too. Will be short term probably as after 5 games Wolves schedule turns real nasty but id be very surprised id he didn't haul in the next three

      Not overlooking, ignoring. Poor form and poor fixtures, I need to see much more before investing.

    2. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Just too many good mids and forwards to be honest. Bruno always a good shout maybe now KDB out

      1. Bonus magnet
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        thinking about "midfielder" rashford or greenwood

        newcastle are still leaky

        1. Arfaish
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          I think is a nice punt, Greenwood especially seen as he is Grealish money

    4. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Fancy Wilson and ASM to cause problems. Fancy a Toon win for once

  3. Baron Penguin (FKA Hadebayo…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 12 days ago

    KDB - Salah (or any other midfielder) for -4 or keep and play one of Saiss/Lamptey/Podence?

  4. ZTF
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    If Maguire is okay for this weekend, who plays next to him?

    1. Bob Mal
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 12 days ago

      If Maguire fit to start, I reckon it should be Bailly and Lindelof.

      1. ZTF
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Sure, but it won’t be

    2. Threat Level Midnight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Who cares we stink

      1. ZTF
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        It’s for draft

        1. Seanigula
          • 12 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          draft one of the training cones instead, it won’t get a red

    3. Bob Mal
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 12 days ago

      I just hope Ole doesn't go with 5 at the back of AWB Lindelof / Bailly Maguire Shaw Telles

      Complete waste of attacking talent having to compensate for our crap CBs with a 5 man defence. But i think it might happen.

  5. Von Lipwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    A) Lamptey as first bench for defence
    B) Mitchell as first bench for defence and pocket extra 0.8m for a rainy day

    1. Firmino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      A

    2. TeddiPonza
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      A

    3. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      First bench needs to be stronger then a £4m defender if the rest is fodder too

      1. Von Lipwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Brewster comes on if someone else is not playing, but in a aback three, Mitchell not enough people reckon? Maybe go Ayling and save the 0.2? Unlikely to ever play really...

    4. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Mitchell's days are numbered

  6. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    Is Moyes still working from home this weekend or is he back in the office?
    If it’s the latter then I expect Spurs to do well

    1. BoleynWin
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      He’s back. There will be goals in our game I can assure you of that.

  7. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    Last try as I need to log off until after deadline! Which on WC?:

    A) Chilwell, Semedo, Rodriguez
    B) Zouma, Saiss, Pulisic
    C) Chilwell, KWP, Pulisic (no WOL def)

    Martinez
    Robbo, XXXX, XXXX
    Salah (v), Son, XXXX, Grealish
    Kane (C), DCL, Maupay
    (Forster) (Mitchell, Dallas, Bissouma)

    Cheers and GL!

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      B or C. B is more than adequate and a good balance.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks Rafa. You ready?!

          See below. Early transfers bite again. Still got WC though. Looking at a -4 for now

        C is def tempting. Just worried about Rodriguez continuing to rip it up!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          That’s the issue but you can’t have everyone. I guess take the advice from here that looks like B or C then go with your gut..

      3. Arfaish
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Too early to say, they have now solved their wing back issues with Semedo and Murcal/Ait-Nouri. I expect cleanies over the next 5

        1. PompeyUpNorth!

      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      We don’t know, could be Barkley.

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        This is why Barkley seems like a good value pick.

  13. toystory2wasok

    A) Brewster + Chillwell

    1. Gregor

      1. Jimmers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Forget Mitchell - PVA is back in training

  14. Weeb Kakashi

    Rashford instead of Son if you have Kane?

    1. TeddiPonza

      Nah

      KDB is out. Barkley is a nice punt especially if he's on PKs.

      1. fajmonkey
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah. Likly switch to sterling then

    Thank you,

    1. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Werner to someone cheaper and get a better 4th mid I think.

  17. MESSINHO
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    On WC

    A) Pulisic + Watkins
    B) Grealish + Maupay

    1. Lord Bendtner
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Same Dilemma as me. I think Grealish and Maupay are the safer choices. Still not sure on Pulisic, want to see more from him before jumping the gun. Also both Jack and Neal are on PKs.

      1. MESSINHO
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks. I'll probably end up A and leaving some money ITB to go Hamez -> Puli if necessary following weeks.

    2. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Pulisic + Maupay, that's what I've gone for, can you afford it?

      1. MESSINHO
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        No I can't unless I go Saiss + Lamptey -> 2 4.5 defenders and rotate them.

  18. Garlicbread
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    In light of KDB news:

    A) Son and Watkins

    or

    B) Grealish and Kane

    ???? Thanks in advance.....

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      I think Grealish is on pens.. So prolly B

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Loads more itb with A though

    3. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 12 days ago

      B think Kane's going to get a brace at least

  19. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    Would KDB >> Pulisic / Sterling (-4)?

    McCarthy
    TAA, Justin, Saiss, Davies
    KDB**, Salah, Rodríguez, Son
    DCL, Ings
    (Nyland, Mitchell, Bissouma, Davis)

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Or use the WC? Made 2FTs already

      1. Baron Penguin (FKA Hadebayo…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Tricky. I'm trying to choose between Pulisic, Salah and Sterling. Thought of Grealish and upgrade Davis next week?

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 12 days ago

          I’d like Grealish at some point. Doesn’t seem the ideal week though for a -4

    2. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Pulisic and use the money to upgrade Ings to Kane?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 12 days ago

        The week after? Don’t fancy taking a -8 after the last time I did this haha

  20. FC Hakkebøf
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    Last four pieces of the (wc) puzzle

    A) Maupay, Grealish, Chilwell, Saiss
    B) Watkins, Trossard, Robertson, Saiss/Zouma
    C) Watkins, Grealish, Chilwell, Semedo

    Already have TAA

    1. Garlicbread
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Really like A with Semedo instead of Saiss (TAA to robbo downgrade needed?)

    2. Dwotle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Don't fancy the Villas double up and I like having a Pool defender, so B

      1. Dwotle
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 12 days ago

        Nevermind. TAA is enough I think, so A

    3. Dexters Laboratory
      11 months, 12 days ago

      A

  21. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 12 days ago

    Hey fam!

    1. Grealish, Barkley or Watkins?

    2. Kane or Son?

    1. Lord Bendtner
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

      Barkley if you fancy the punt. But Grealish is the safer bet.

      Son over Kane because of value.

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 12 days ago

        Ok thanks. Slight concern that pep was referring to those who went away with their squads whereas Sterling pulled out of the England squad + not in the most recent MC training photos. I’m probably worrying unnecessarily.
