Which Sky Sports Fantasy assets can offer value ahead of next Overhaul period?


With the Overhaul period approaching fast, which players are worth bringing in to add some much-needed value to your Fantasy Football teams?


Our Sky Sports Fantasy Football picks have enjoyed success recently in the form of John Stones, Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka.

Foden impressed with a goal and man-of-the-match against Brighton but only featured off the bench in City’s dominant performance against Crystal Palace. He did also blank in his last outing against Aston Villa.

Meanwhile Saka registered two shots on target against Crystal Palace and Newcastle, converting one of those in Arsenal’s win over Newcastle. Another 14 points from his last two means the youngster has recorded 43 from his last five, with a top 1,000 selection percentage of 27.8. It was standing at a mere 5.6 per cent before both of these games.

Saving the best till last, Stones has racked up 47 points in his last two games, adding more clean sheets to his partnership with Ruben Dias. What he has been wanting to add to his game is goals, and he emphatically took both chances which came his way against Crystal Palace.

Kevin De Bruyne’s ball (we must not forget) made Stones’ first, with his second coming from a rebound after his centre-back partner’s shot was saved. A clean sheet and a man-of-the-match performance later, the England international finished on 29 points, placing him on 94 for the campaign.

There are many names to consider ahead of the Overhaul, but which ones could make the all-important difference in league positions?

Michail Antonio – £8.0m

Antonio earns back-to-back start for first time since Gameweek 6

A Sky Sports Fantasy Football favourite, Michail Antonio has sprung into action since making his return to the West Ham starting line-up. Two starts, two goals, and one MOTM to his name, he posted 21 points against Burnley and West Brom.

Over half of the top 1,000 players in the game have recruited the services of the Englishman, and for good reason. With Crystal Palace, Liverpool, Aston Villa and Fulham to play ahead of the unlimited transfer period, Antonio could really offer value-for-money if he continues to sustain his form.

With Sebastien Haller departing for Ajax, Antonio is David Moyes’ number one option, until they can sign a back-up. When you combine this with the fact that he scores six points per goal due to his midfield status in Fantasy Football, it seems like a no-brainer to have him in your XI.

James Maddison – £8.8m

Maddison outshining Vardy as Pereira returns for Leicester

From a classy interview to a darts-related or socially-distanced goal celebration, James Maddison is showcasing all of his skills at the moment, and you wonder why Leicester went to the top of the Premier League table for a brief spell after their 2-0 win over Chelsea.

He was the star of the show once more, earning the MOTM award and smartly finishing past Edouard Mendy to double Leicester’s lead. This was Maddison’s third goal in as many games. He did talk about adding numbers into his game during his interview on Tuesday, yet 10 goal contributions (six goals, four assists) in 12 starts is doing all of the talking for him.

The Leicester midfielder has 27 points in his last three matches – with Everton, Leeds, Fulham and Wolves to come before the end of week 22, Maddison could push you on to bigger and better things, with his 5.8 per cent selection rate serving as a fitting differential option.

Emiliano Martinez – £6.3m

Aston Villa have games in hand on all Premier League teams, having played only 16 games so far this season. Despite that, Emiliano Martinez has registered 111 Fantasy Football points, top of the goalkeeping charts, while keeping eight clean sheets already, more than Villa managed to keep during the whole of the last campaign.

Martinez registered tier two save bonus points against Manchester City on Wednesday, extending his lead at the top to four (over Ederson). Villa are playing catch up as I alluded to, and are the only team in Premier League action this weekend alongside their opponents Newcastle.

Steve Bruce’s side have only scored once in their last five, providing a great opportunity for the Villa stopper to claim another clean sheet and a potential captaincy choice.

    People w/ Vardy and KDB... who are you swapping them out for?

        Sounds over the top, I’m planning 5 transfers over the next three gameweeks. Starting with Vardy > Kane and KDB > Maddison this week

      • Party time

        Kane and Gundo, but I'll do Rashford to Son next week and will have both Son and Kane.

      • The 12th Man
        • 7 Years

        Think I’m going to hold KDB this week then do KDB > Son in 21.

      bottomed

      Martinez (Forster)
      Stones Cresswell Cancelo (Justin) (Holding)
      Foden Grealish Fernandes Son Rashford
      Kane Antonio (Brewster)

      1.2itb 2ft

      debating over Barnes instead of foden or grealish as a bit of a differential, but longer term i think this holds out well

      thoughts?

        I just wildcarded to get a similar team, so nicely done to do it without. Only big difference really is that I have Maddison instead of Rashford and DCL instead of Brewster.

        1. bored by december

          2 months, 19 days ago

          Thanks man, yeah Mads was another option for me, interesting to have him instead of rashford!

          DCL is definitely a good pick going forward

    5. JAYPEE

      Sterling or Rashford as a KDB replacement?

          On WC. Which 5th mid?

          A. ESR
          B. Anguissa

          With Odegaard coming to Arsenal, I'm leaning towards Anguissa. Thoughts?

          1. bored by december
            • 3 Years

            whats the rest of the team? - probably ESR

        5. BeWater
            2 months, 19 days ago

            What are people with Trent and Robbo thinking now. Going to move them on or sticking with them?

            If you are moving them on who are you replacing them with?

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

              Don't have either, but if I did, I would probably sell TAA and keep Robbo. Double City defence if you don't already have it, or Chilwell/Man Utd defender

              1. BeWater
                  2 months, 19 days ago

                  I have Cancelo at the moment and thinking just do the simple thing and get Stones. Allows enough money for Vardy to Kane the week after.

                • 8 Years

                A man City player if you don't already have

            2. Jdpz
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 19 days ago

              a) KDB >>> Sterling
              b) KDB + Soucek >>> Maddison + Son

              1. Jdpz
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 19 days ago

                *b for -4

                • 1 Year

                2 months, 19 days ago

                B, but wouldn't take a hit if. Gw20 Maddy, gw21 Son.

              4. BeWater
                  2 months, 19 days ago

                  I would do just A.

                What would you change in that team?
                Kdb to Son?
                Kdb to Gundogan?

                    2 months, 19 days ago

                    Intriguing that KDB didn't fall in price last night. Is he locked now he's injured?

                    1. aleksaa2
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 19 days ago

                      Doesn't have to be, there are still 100k people who brought him in for gw20. No way that he would fall.

                    Save the FT and sort KDB out next week with 2 FT’s and play the team below?

                      Nothing wrong with that team for gw20. You can do that.

                        Yeh I’d have to bench one of Coufal or Watkins if I were to move KDB to Gundo or Son this week.
                        Thinking it might be just to hold on and decide in wk 21.

                      Edging towards holding this lot now DCL back but extra City defender in obvs a big temptation. Thought

                        Any cash in bank?
                        I have Robbo & Salah, thinking time for Robbo to go, Maguire, Justin for me.
                        But you could do with x2 city defence?

                          Big temptation is double City defence of course

                      Foden/Gundo very close stats-wise.

                        Pep prefers gundo and on pens

                          I think he likes both of them. Both are in form. And realistically Sterling could easily grab another penalty.

                          1. Baines on Toast...
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            I think this is widely being treated as an overwhelmingly clear decision, when actually it’s about 50-50.

                            No chance on the Sterling pen point.

                            Citys goals are not as free flowing as past years.

                            KDB likely only offered Sterling the last one as KDB was KNACKERED and wasn't up to it.

                              The only time I see Sterling taking a pen off Gundo is if they've scored a few and Sterling begs for another goal.

                              Like when he denied Stones a chance of a hatty when scoring that free kick.

                        Foden, they did not buy a D Silva replacement because he is the future

                      Undecided with KDB to either Son or Gundo with FT

                      Would you bench Vardy and play Soucek or take him out for a hit? Most likely Kane

                          I would do KDB to Son. Son will get in behind them and have the odd chance. Then play Soucek.

                          1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…

                            Thanks. Still unsure if I should gamble on Gundo or wait 1GW to see how he is plays without KDB or not bring in a 3rd city player at all

                          Tough one, he needs at least a goal or two assists for 10 points
