Sky Sports Fantasy Football: Sticks and Stones? Who to bring in before the Overhaul?

With a few Gameweeks, some Double, still to go until the overhaul on February 6, which players could you bring into your side to give your team a much-needed boost heading into the period of unlimited changes?

John Stones

What is there to say about John Stones that has not been said in the last couple of weeks or so? In the last eight games in all competitions, Stones has helped his side to keep seven clean sheets alongside Ruben Dias, winning seven and drawing one of those matches.

On a Sky Sports Fantasy Football front, the England international has posted 52 points from his last seven matches, despite not featuring in City’s 1-1 draw against West Brom. These have stemmed from five clean sheets, four tier two passing bonus points and a Man of the Match award in the Manchester derby.

Brighton, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa all await Pep Guardiola’s team at the Etihad, before trips to West Brom and Burnley in between a home fixture against Sheffield United. I expect Stones to comfortably pick up 40 points from these six games alone, so now more than ever is a superb time to bring the revitalised centre-half into your side.

Phil Foden

Latching onto the fixtures, one man who is set to feature more is Phil Foden. The youngster shone against Chelsea and played his part in the Carabao Cup derby victory too, but there is an opportunity for some serious standing-swinging points in City’s next six fixtures alone.

Foden has only started six games this season, so there is always a case of potentially falling victim to the ‘Pep Roulette’. In the six games he has started, the City attacker has scored on two occasions and assisted twice, as well as scoring and assisting from the bench against West Ham and Burnley.

He only has 48 points for the campaign, but he does have the capacity to double this if he features in at least four or five of Man City’s next six. Particularly if you are bringing in Foden to captain, he could well surpass this for your Fantasy Football XI. Will you take the leap?

Bukayo Saka

Bukayo Saka has been the man in form for Arsenal, and has just landed their December Player of the Month. The third England international featuring in this week’s tips has recorded 29 points from his last three games, scoring twice and assisting once, picking up two Man of the Match awards in that period.

Saka is the highest-scoring Arsenal midfielder in Sky Fantasy Football, and a promising aspect of a move to the 19-year old is the fact that there are single games and therefore concrete captaincy choices with an Arsenal asset. If you bring in Saka ahead of Thursday, you can captain him against Crystal Palace and Newcastle, both of which are at home.

Move fast, as currently only 5.4% of the top 1,000 Sky Fantasy Football players are on board with the Arsenal winger. I expect this to move into the double figure mark by next weekend, so do not miss out on a potential steal.

With less than a month to go before the Overhaul is active, make sure your last couple of transfers pay dividends and fire you up the table.

    The article has been up for 15 mins now and only one comment so far. Things seem to be quite chilled out on here after yesterday's dramas

      Many have given up on this train wreck of a season probably- at least temporarily

        1 month, 19 days ago

        I think we just need to accept this season for what it is and get on with it. It is outside of our control, all we can do is find the best ways of adapting to the changes every week.

      What happened yesterday?

        The usual flapping Bubz - potential suspension of games, potential circuit breakers, etc

    3. diesel001

      No point thinking about FPL until Monday night (UK time). Let all the FA Cup fixtures finish, find out who is injured, suspended, and the PL fixtures that are being postponed or rescheduled.

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

        100% agree. I haven't even tinkered with my FH team yet because I don't see the point until closer to the deadline when we have more information. A bit demotivating this whole situation really

      Dont speak too soon. Bit less chilled but same issues remain

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

        Absolutely agree, just think people have come to accept the unpredictability a bit more now. At the end of the day, not much we can do about it

        Just a lot of people flapping about the Spurs v Villa game, the usual talks of a circuit breaker, etc. Nothing new really

      What we need is footballers and every other member of society to follow the rules, trouble is there are always individuals who think they know better and it will never happen to them, well news for you it can and likely will. No coincidence the two big rises in cases in the PL were following Christmas and New Year celebrations that shouldn't have happened!!!

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

        With the amount of social media coverage on all of those players you would think that they would take things a bit more seriously. Salah was at a wedding of hundreds of people, surely you would know that at least one or 2 would snap a picture of you and post it on social media. Some of them clearly don't care it seems

      2. Olson
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        No, what we need is clubs to lead by example. In the Villa game yesterday no less than a day after their entire first team got quarantined they let both teams and all supporting staff leave the field of play after the match high fiving, elbow bumping, patting each other's heads before cramming about fifty people down a small tunnel at the same time.

        Clubs just don't get it. There will always be individuals who either don't get it or disregard it, but when you have leadership at that level who are so clueless then telling off naughty players is not going to make a difference.

        Expect the FA Cup this weekend to have an impact. This is likely to get worse before it's gets better

        1. Doggy daddy
            1 month, 19 days ago

            We have top level players playing binmen, supermarket workers etc this weekend. Makes whole premier bubble thing pointless

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

              When you see how absolutely clueless the top level clubs are then you wonder whether lower league teams could actually be any worse in their practices. It's all a nonsense anyway. Imagine actually thinking that it's a good idea in a pandemic to put a large group of men together in a tunnel and a small room who all have elevated ventilation from the exercise. Numbskulls

          • davidfromkent
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I think maybe you missed the point. I didn't see that particular game so can't say if it was any different to any other game that has taken place under the strict protocols in place to allow fixtures to go ahead. It is highly unlikely with all those individuals having been tested to be there that anyone has caught the virus, other than when arrogant individuals think they are above and beyond the rules/law and put themselves about outside of their specified safe bubbles, which is mirrored entirely by the same arrogance in society.

            If footballers did outside of the club bubbles what they are supposed to, there would only be incidental cases, as was the situation prior to Christmas, despite the new more easily transmissible strain.

        Because this season is over. No point discussing what is essentially a glorified version of flip a coin.

      Who's the stick? Saka or Fodden?

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

        Saka and/or Smith-Rowe I would say

    8. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Some were suggesting Everton now have the likes of Digne and Hamez fit and would be back to their early-season form.

      Now struggling to beat Rotherham.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Tbf they have no Rich or DCL though.

      2. Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Cesk Tosun, 2-1. They'll take it.

        90 mins for J Rodriguez too it seems.
        That's huge.

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

          take what?

          1. Ron_Swanson
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            2-1 win?

    9. Right In The Stanchion
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Bloody Hell how are Everton struggling against Rotherham.

        You wouldn’t think they haven’t won a trophy for 25 years.

        I need you to win for my acca. SCORE

        1. Team Bobcat
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Everton will struggle in equal measure againstany team. They dont score a whole pile and with DCL and Rich not playing they will score less. Such is Evertons way

      • Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        If you owned Bruno, Salah, Mane, Son- would you move for KDB right away and which of the aforementioned would you replace if yes?

        Mane seems the obvious choice but Son, Salah may be options to remove too.
        Probably going to be FH'ing this GW and then TC in 19.

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Mane. Son should have plenty of DGWs coming once they get around to making up the missed fixtures.

          1. Sz21
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Yeah. Makes sense. I've owned Mane for 2 games and was hoping he'd have delivered by now. Think he is still a decent shout but the other power 4 look good too and a bit more must have.

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

          Mane easily.

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

          Mane I think

        Bruno KdB Saka
        Wilson Watkins* Kane*
        ¦ Salah* Coufal Soucek

        1.3 ITB, 1 FT

        A) Kane, Watkins -> Martial, Jesus
        B) Salah, Watkins -> Sterling, Richarlison

        Just in case the Villa match gets called off..

        • 4 Years

        I would probably have said Mane a few days ago, but Son/Kane could be the best option now with cancellations. I'd wait for the dust to settle. Are you being pushed by price?

        Want Tosun to join WBA. Perfect Big Sam signing. Don't want him on form now.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 2 Years

          He was rubbish under him last time.

        Is Haller going a good thing for Antonio?

        1. diesel001
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Yes. But they are looking for another forward.

        2. Pep bites Kun
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Marginal I think, but depends who they bring in. Antonio was/is the preferred option

        3. St Pauli Walnuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Irrelevant really, Antonio is first choice ... fitness is/was his competition, not Haller. Anyone else they sign in this windows will be backup to Antonio.

      • JP\'s
          1 month, 19 days ago

          If neither Spurs or Villa play, I’ve got six players for GW18 (Pope, Dias, Bellerin, Bruno, DCL, Brewster). Thoughts on whether to play the wildcard?

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

            No, maybe do a -4 and get a couple more players and your are gtg

          2. Pep bites Kun
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Yes. Depends on the rest of your team for gw19 and onwards whether you FH or WC

          3. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Are we expecting to know about Spurs Villa BEFORE deadline?

            I haven't planned a single FH team but would need to in the event of cancellation/postponing.

            A cancellation afterwards would be a nightmare for this game.

            I'm almost tempted to FH now anyway but would be utterly ticked off if it was for nothing and that match went ahead.

            1. ALI_G
              • 3 Years

              draft your FH team and hold on playing the chip till closer to DL

              Well obviously it would be unthinkable for the PL to cancel fixtures a couple of hours before kickoff.

                • 8 Years

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                nope

                Don't like either

                Looking at Saka, Holding and Terney

                1. GreennRed
                  • 9 Years

                Auba the ultimate diff. Saka, Holding, Tierney, Laca will be in a lot of teams imo.
                It's only a one week failure if it backfires

                • 3 Years

                Yep, both (although only assuming there is no spurs fixture)

              4. GreennRed
                • 9 Years

                No, though would prefer Lacazette if picking either.

                If Spurs v Villa is called off then yes, I will bring in Lacazette in place of Kane and make other changes elsewhere.

                My plans do not, and will not involve Auba...

              If there is no definitive answer on if Tottenham and villa game will go ahead before deadline it will be carnage. Whether to get Kane/Son against an under23 team, or the game could be called off all together

                might leave son in then and have a strong bench

                Jose banging on about the impact of the fixture pile up, and the possibility of Spurs v Fulham being rescheduled for GW18, might prompt the PL to take early action; but I wouldn’t count on it.

                1. Team Bobcat
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  They took their action a few weeks back and allowed Newcastle postpone.

                  Only fair villa are allowed do same when in much worse position than city and co. were a week ago.

                  Jose merely said teams were given the rules from the outset, and league chiefs balked when pressure (small presure at that) came on from Newcastle.

                  Prepare for carnage until this wave blows over at the very least.

                  Jose is making sense

                    1 month, 19 days ago

                    Jose has made a number of reasonable points, including that Spurs were forced to squeeze in Carabao Cup and Europa Cup qualifiers earlier in the season while City and United got GW1 breaks; and now faces the prospect of triple game weeks being imposed. Sooner or later, the PL are going to have to find a way to navigate the fixture pile up.

                If there's no confirmed decision before deadline then I'm going to assume it's off. I don't see AVL agreeing to play u23s in PL or how they can be forced to do so.

                  • 4 Years

                I have no idea why so many people seem to think Villa will field a youth side just because they did it in the cup.

                  There is no way in the world villa will play the kids in the league. Some people are really struggling to grasp that fact.

                  Probably the same people who ask what happens to any saved transfers when you FH.

                      Not exactly. Rodgers said they have both been playing at 80% fitness and this is a chance to get proper rest and repair for 2 weeks so they can hopefully be 100% when they next play.

                      If today were an important game, they'd be playing.

                    Norris is starting and Pope is on the bench. probably a change of mind since Farrel was terrible when he played? or there is some kind of injury? Does anyone know?

                      Auba and double City defence. No point being dull if you’re on a free hit. City will keep a clean sheet and Auba could start scoring again. People are just too scared to think outside the box.

                    Still waiting for the Villa Spurs confirmation b4 i can make a decision whether i shd FH or just use my transfers.... Just curious though...
                    My current team is:
                    Martinez
                    Holding Stones (Coufal, Justin, Dallas)
                    Son Grealish Fernandes (Salah, Soucek)
                    DCL (Bamford & Adams)...

                    Planning to take a -4 n get Wilson n KDB in for Adams & Salah in GW18 which gives me 9 players.... Assuming e Villa game is on, do u think my team is strong enough for BGW after e two transfers or shd i just FH n save e -4??

                      That confirmation might not come until after the BGW18 deadline...

                      I hope they force Villa to play their U23s

                      1. Qaiss
                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 19 days ago

                        If they can field 14, then they should be made to play. That was what the FA said would happen in September.

                          1 month, 19 days ago

                          Why on earth would they force villa to play the under 23s?

                          1. Qaiss

                            1 month, 19 days ago

                            It’s near impossible to play the fixture later in the season if Spurs go far in the europa league and FA cup.

                          Doubt it. The FA may have the authority to force a club to play, but does that apply to U23s? If forced, they would need to field 11 from their first team squad

                        Yes, but keep the players in your current team that you think you'll play. If you sell them, save and decide later that you want them back they' prob cost more.

                      Would you play the FH if Villa Spurs is postponed? Can get this team out

                      Cancelo Stones Taylor Mitchell
                      KDB Bruno

                      Not sure if the FH is worth it as I already have triple city and Bruno.
                      Will stand to lose ground only in the Ars fixture which is hard to call imo

                        I would prob free hit if I had that team. Just really hoping the Villa - Spurs game is on, I currently have 11 players this week, down to 6 if it’s off 🙁

                          I had 2 FT saved and If I FH I would lose Cancelo,Stones and KDB who I plan to have for the long term.
                          I'm losing out on 3 players if Villa Spurs is off.
                          Just feel the gains made by getting 11 out this week is really minimal as Arsenal can't really be trusted in a tricky game against P.alace

                          Probably like 4 scoring players there since Mitchell and Taylor are gonna blank. And if Brighton somehow scores, you're down to 2. I would FH with just 2 attackers there.
