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.

    Arsenal aren't taking the cup seriously at all, RIP DGW23 dreams

      Mid strength team. But the cup means nothing compared to the league.

      Yep, always hold on the bench transfers.

  3. TheBiffas

      Thoughts on rashford as a KDB replacement?

          Just don't fancy him. Especially if he carries on playing on the right.

          Not consistent enough for that price imo

      4. aleksaa2

        Southampton XI: Forster, Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Stephens, Bertrand, Diallo, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Walcott, Ings, Adams.

        Arsenal XI: Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Cedric, Elneny, Xhaka, Pepe, Willian, Martinelli, Nketiah.

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Could be close.

          2.2?

      5. McSauce

        1 month, 5 days ago

        KDB + Vardy OUT........IN?

        A) Sterling & Kane (perfect money)
        B) son & Kane
        C) Rashford & Kane

        GW 20 - Bruno (C)
        GW21 - Sterling (C) if bring him in

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          B or C

          ye then I can get a 3rd city player (stones) for bench fodder next week

      6. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I feel like Ings will prob end up getting injured again...

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Always a possibility. It's a bit like Grealish on 4 yellows. If I really wanted the player, I wouldn't let technicalities or chance cloud my judgement.

      7. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Forster starting in their strongest 11! Worry for McCarthy owners?

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Forster is no. 1"B"

        2. Woodpusher64
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Teams do that with goalkeepers. It will be fine (he hopes).

        Which kdb moves are clever to do with regards to upcoming dgws?

        Start Adams or Soucek?

        1. CroatianHammer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Souček. Zophar had the right of it, in that you play him if you have him, end of... Whether he's your 4th or 5th midfielder.

        Pure gas some of the comments. There's little wrong with that Arsenal line-up, nor with the Soton one either. A number of those Gunners need game time, and where else are they supposed to get it only today? Same gomes whinging about the selection would be waving their St. George's flags like it's *insert metaphor here* if Nketiah was lining up for an England U21 and likely to bag a brace.

        Should be a decent game, end to end.

        1. Woodpusher64
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I agree. Think Arsenal looks fine.
          Could be close game regardless.

      13. FantasyClub
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Not much mention of Maddison or Barnes as KDB replacements...is there a general worry their attack may be hindered by the absence of Vardy even though he blanked?

          1. wulfranian
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            No offence but your last post was 7 days ago.A lot of discussion around Barnes/Maddison over these days.

                    Because i want to show you what you are saying it's not true.If you want to read opinions (including mine) on Barnes/Maddison there are a lot of articles the last 7 days.

                          Because you are factually incorrect. Barnes and Maddison is all everyone has been talking about for days

                    2. gogs67
                        1 month, 5 days ago

                        Maddison is the most bought in midfielder this GW, if there is a worry then its only in the echo chamber of this place, the outside work of FPL is going for him lol

                      Any other DGW games other than the southampton v leeds if Arsenal win

                        If Akinfenwa gets a hatty, Villa vs Spurs is a possibility in gw23.

                      Don’t want Arsenal to win, have only Bamford if Leeds and Southampton get DGW23. Will have to transfer in some more, maybe Ings, Dallas, McCarthy.

                      Could do for a hit this week or for free next week.

                      Ralph got confused and thought today is the league and Tuesday's match is the cup.

                      KDB to who guys? Personally thinking Son.

                      A) Son
                      B) Sterling
                      C) Gundogan
                      D) Madison
                      E) Barnes

                        1 month, 5 days ago

                        Son feels right to me.
                        The only downside is some fixtures. The others I have at least some sort of doubt about. Depends how risk avert you want to be.

                      Weird feeling having 2 players playing today when it feels like the gameweek has ended already

                      Looking to get the 4 players acrosd next couple of GWs, which pair would you get first:

                      Salah 11 points 5 games - think Kane and Son will likely extend their lead in the total points table!

                      Do I do

                      A) Vardy + KDB to Kane + Rashford/Maddy/Grealish for -4pts
                      B) KDB to one of the above and bench vardy this week and do it for free next week

                      You can see I haven't been paying as close attention to FPL as I should have - was completely unaware that Matt Ryan had signed for Arsenal until I saw the teams today...

                      So KDB will not fall in price then?

                        He will once certain threshold numbers are passed he will drop.

                      For those with WC FH and BB available, what is your strategy plan apart from WC25 BB26 FH29 ?

                        I'm afraid that's my plan but dependant on knowing fixtures moved from gw29 to gw26. No plans for TC as yet. At the moment "no plan B". Happy with 20k rank drop, so far, over last 2 gameweeks. Only have Martinez and Watkins to play. It does feel nice to be sat with all chips but it could still all backfire.
                        Good luck to all members over the next gameweek.

                          Isn't there a blank week 33 to navigate too?

                          I've got WC, FH and TC and I'm in no rush to use them up too early.
