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.

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Martinez is enough. You should consider Grealish and Watkins double up

  5. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Have Son but no City cover, would you go:

    A) Sterling, Jimenez, 4.4 def

    1. Mackans
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      I’m buying Grealish & Kane. Thoughts?

      1. Garlicbread
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        Exactly what im planning......its that or Son and Watkins. Im undecided.

  8. Phlajo
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    So City without Jesus, Aguero, KdB tomorrow.

    Arsenal could win it! And Auba to smash it!

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Or Sterling to carry and haul 😉

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Yep...

  9. Mackans
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    KDB & Adams -> Grealish & Kane (-8)?

    1. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Looks good

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Who plays instead of KDB?

      1. Mackans
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        Saiss. But if I only do KDB -> Grealish, Adams will play

  10. Bullet Eder
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Start one:

    A. Lamptey (cry)

    B. Podence (lee)

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      B

    2. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 5 days ago

      A - looks so threatening maybe grab a cheeky assist.

    3. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Podence and kiss good bye if no return

  11. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Bench one...

    A) Taylor (wba)
    B) Ayling (WOL)
    C) Justin (AVL)

    1. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Tough, A or B

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      I'm playing B and benching C

  12. Arfaish
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    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. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      I have Ryan, Reguilon and Zaha instead Guaita, Lamptey and Grealish. Other than that we have everything the same. GL to you bro!

      1. Arfaish
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        Cheers man, lets hope for some green arrows

    2. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      It's hardly budget with two 5.5m is it?

      1. Arfaish
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        Id say yes compared to the template which is £7/7.5m and a £5.5m so at least £1.5m to £2m cheaper. Makes a difference to the rest of the team.

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

          True, it makes it worse without Robbo

          1. Arfaish
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 5 days ago

            Fair, I'm willing to give it a go though for the short term whilst clean sheets are hard to come by. Each change to make with a Grealish/Pulisic downgrade

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

              You might want to get rid of Justin and Mitchell if they are losing their places

  13. Lucky Z
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Simple one, guys:

    A. Grealish
    B. Maupay

    1. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      B. Maupay on pens, better fixtures, still not sold on Villa just yet.

    2. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      A by a large margin

    3. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 5 days ago

      B

    4. Hint
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      A

  14. mattyb09
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    On wildcard. Best option?

    a) Kane, Barnes, Lamptey
    b) Wilson, Sterling, 4.5 def

    1. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 5 days ago

      B with Maupay instead of Wilson for me

      1. mattyb09
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        Currently have Wilson at 6.4, so upgrading 0.2 would prevent me from getting a starting 3rd DEF at 4.3

  15. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Which option?

    1. Adams & KDB to Kane & Son for free

    2. Podence & KDB to Son & Grealish for free

    1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      1 imo

    2. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      1. Get Adams far away

    3. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 5 days ago

      11111111 🙂

    4. Derek the Dog
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      think i'd go for 1

    5. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      2

    6. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Cheers everyone

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

    Would you go WC? Switch to 3 at the back. Get a good defence. Get Kane, Pulisic, Grealish, etc?

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

      Team sorry;

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

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Not needed

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

        What would you recommend?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 5 days ago

          Would switch to 3 at the back by navigating FTs, that team doesn't need a WC

    3. Derek the Dog
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      do you have any FT to use instead of WC?

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

        No. Used my 2FTs already. Again been hit by making early moves. Would be a -4

  17. Derek the Dog
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    which would you prefer?

    Chilwell, Grealish & Maupay

    or

    Trent, Trossard, Watkins

    1. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 5 days ago

      CGM

  18. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Will Sterling step up when KDB out? Grealish and cash to do anything tempting also.

  19. NULL-X-VOID
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Any news on PVA?

    1. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Saw pictures of him training

      1. NULL-X-VOID
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        when is the presser for CRY, or already happened?

    2. Arfaish
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Seen it written that's hes back in training on here

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      He's back

  20. yanky
    • 11 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    a) KDB > Grealish -4pt
    b) KDB > Pulisic -4pt
    c) KDB > Sterling -4pt
    d) Keep KDB and play Lamptey

    1. Latetotheparty
      11 months, 5 days ago

      b

  21. CBonci
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    I have used 2 FTs to get in Kane/Son. No brainer to take a -4 to get in Grealish for Podence?

    Still have James and Lamptey so can’t really afford a non-starter for Podence.

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Do you think Grealish returns against Leicester? Lies in that.

      1. CBonci
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        Fair point. I would likely be doing it for long term purposes so he would pay it off I would imagine!

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 5 days ago

          If its being done for long term then why not for free next week?

  22. Baron Penguin (FKA Hadebayo…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 5 days ago

    1. KDB - Salah/Sterling/Pulisic (-4) - just realised I can't do Grealish as I have Watkins, Martinez & Steer
    2. Keep KDB and play one of Saiss/Lamptey/Podence

  23. Grounderz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Any word on Sterling, folks?

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Silence, and thats a good thing. Its between him and Grealish+cash for me.
      Good old Sterling or struggling Sterling? What do you think?

  24. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Maupay or Wilson?

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

      Probably maupay

  25. RAFA THE GAFFA

    -4 to get Kev in for back to back blanks and now he’s out and I need to take a -4 to remove him! 😀

        Good advice. Hard to implement at times

        1. soumyeah
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 5 days ago

          well said

  26. thetommy14
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Best option on a WC?

    A) TAA + Dallas
    B) Robbo + Lamptey

    Both options have Chilwell and Saiss...

    1. soumyeah
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Robbo & Lamptey have obviously looked stronger that TAA + Dallas this season.. but guessing you know that..

  27. AzzaroMax99
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Word on Lamptey?
    Probably will play him and bench KDB. Other options are Mitchel and Anguissa.

  28. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Worth keeping 0.5ITB on WC or upgrade e.g. 5th mid/def ?

    Currently my bench would be like: Lamptey, 4.4mid, 4.0def

  29. dshv
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    ADVISE?

    How it looks this g2g after transfers (-4)
    Or start wc ?

    Mccarthy
    Taa mitchel taylor davies justin
    Salah son kdb bruno soucek
    Watkins Dcl davis

    In my case with kdb is it time for WC .. but all WC just for kevin ?

  30. teneighty

    Is Pep trying to do a Jose?

    1. AzzaroMax99
      • 4 Years

      That crossed my mind too xD

    2. soumyeah

      I don't know. I cannot answer this question because I don't know.
