Who are the best Everton players to own for FPL Double Gameweek 24?

Everton come under the spotlight as we begin our team-by-team look at the four clubs with two fixtures in Double Gameweek 24.

After a flying start to the season, the Toffees have endured a mixed run of form and face-off against Fulham and Manchester City in Double Gameweek 24.

The 500,000 Fantasy Premier League (FPL) players who have brought Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) into their teams for the double now face an anxious wait after the striker was substituted off with a hamstring injury in their FA Cup clash with Spurs.

With other assets like Richarlison (£7.8m), James Rodriguez (£7.7m) and Lucas Digne (£6.1m) receiving some attention, we are assessing Everton’s FPL credentials using Opta data.

As this article uses a significant amount of information from the Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members Area, only those with a valid subscription can access it in full.

THE FORM

Everton started the season as unlikely title contenders after a series of impressive results.

After scoring 14 goals in their first five Gameweeks, Calvert-Lewin was a fixture in nearly every team, with Rodriguez and Digne also picking up a decent following.

But injuries to key players saw the Toffees drop out of form, with Carlo Ancelotti choosing a more defensive style of play to grind out victories.

However, recent results and a return to form for Calvert-Lewin, who failed to score a single goal from Gameweek 12 to Gameweek 21, have seen a resurgence in Everton ownership.

    Have Gundo and Sterling and think Ill captain Gundo. More likely to start both imo.

      5 months, 13 days ago

      Either look good to C imo

    Salah + DCL to Cavani + Rashford -8 to enable bench boost could be unreal

    1. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      Could be a complete disaster also

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 13 days ago

        Well DCL is out and when is there a better time to bench boost when I have a really good bench of

        Martinez Creswell Coufal Bamford

    2. Milkman Bruno

        That seems like it could be a “season over” moment to me!

        Salah up against a Leicester side with no Castagne or Justin... 😉

          I know but I'm in a terrible situation with my bench. I'm forced to find a way to bench boost

          1. Milkman Bruno

              Go with your gut Fudgy

                My gut tells me to find a way to bench boost I just don't know how to do it with DCL injured and 0itb

                There is for me yes, I'm going to use my wildcard soon and have a rubbish bench

                  So BB after WC no?

                    BB before WC

          At least you'd have something to moan about, you should go for it.

          1. Fudgy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 13 days ago

            Well I'm attacking west brom and Newcastle massively so seems like a good plan

            1. Snevitz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              5 months, 13 days ago

              I didn't criticize it, you just need to be pretty sure of a - 8 and not expect it to pay off in a single week.

              1. Fudgy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                5 months, 13 days ago

                Well DCL is a 0 pointer do it's basically a -6

                1. Snevitz
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 12 Years
                  5 months, 13 days ago

                  Only if you already have a non playing bench.

                  1. Fudgy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    5 months, 13 days ago

                    Well the plan would be to bench boost with this bench

                    Martinez Creswell Coufal Bamford

            I don't either ; WBA parking the bus does not suit United.

        Tempted with a bench boost of McCarthy, Targett, Dallas and Bamford. Thoughts?

          Struijk is an option.

        GW2: once you've covered most of the already popular assets from the Spurs, Leeds, Villa & West Ham.
        (Kane, Son, Bamford, Dallas, Raphinia, Antonio, Soucek, Coufal, Martinez, Grealish, Watkins)
        What the point in spending hits or more FTs on filler just to get to 11? Especially when very few have an FT left so you won't be competing with many full XIs anyway. Only to then WC them out again?

        Seems a very myopic focus.

        1. Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          That's an easy 10 players and I don't think you even need to WC afterwards.

        2. Utopsis
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 13 days ago

          What else would you use your FTs for ahead of a WC?

          1. Sif
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            5 months, 13 days ago

            Making my team the strongest possible over a period not just for one GW.
            Like removing Justin when he has Brighton 27 then Sheffield 28. I don't see the point just to get a random player I don't want in even If I do have WC left.

            1. lifes a pitch
              • 7 Years
              5 months, 13 days ago

              I agree. It rarely works out anyway.

            2. Utopsis
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 13 days ago

              Ah no I completely agree with you on the Justin example (pre-injury of course), but in other instances taking the risk of moving a stable player on for 1/2 GWs to really attack certain fixtures can pay off big. Particularly if you don't have too much value tied up in them

      • Neves say Neves
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        If it looks likely that DCL won’t start against Fulham, doing DCL>Cavani and Cavani>Kane for gw 26 looks veeeery nice

        1. dogtanion
          • 11 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          Tempted.. might even go straight to Kane

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          Can you afford to skip the middle step?

          Just get kane? Use fts elsewhere?

          1. Neves say Neves
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 13 days ago

            Yeah I can afford DCL >Kane but I don’t really fancy Spurs against city or West Ham while Cavani’s fixtures are great for the next 2 games. Do you think it’s a better move to just do DCL > Kane

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Do you think Cavani starts both PL games with Europa League game either side?

          I had that decision until Antonio appeared to be injured.
          I had Grealish on the bench but now it's Antonio as I'm worried that even if he starts he'll pull up injured.

        24.....chilwell and dcl  to lowton and ings for free

        25....soucek and antonio to raphinha and Bamford  - 4

        26.....hopefully just enough for Bamford to kane (TC)

        B

        24...Chilwell and dcl to lowton and bamford

        25.....soucek to raphinha

        26.....antonio to kane

        Option A gives me ings as an extra dgw player but I'll have to rake a hit...thanks

        Jesus had one of his best games against Swansea- I could get him for Antonio on a free- worth considering and even captaining as big differential? Could get Sterling for Salah but getting Jesus for the double (particularly if Antonio not fit to start) then easy move to Kane for week 26

        1. St Pauli Walnuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 13 days ago

          Doesn't start every game, good chance he misses one of the double. Also rarely gets more than one goal, not sure he's worth the price as good a player as he is.

        There is a big merit to saving your WC for GW30 if you can field a strong XI with a TC In 26 using FT's.
        5-6 DGW fixtures will be played aftee GW30 and there is a good fixture swing.

          Thanks for input mate

          Interesting.. Who do the fixtures swing for and against?

      • George Agdgdgwngo
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        With the villa (liv and city) and Leeds (city, liv, Man U) fixtures after gw 29 there’s no way I want to be left with a squad full of these players.

        No doubt FH is the way to go.

      • Tsparkes10

          • 2 Years

          Salah is up against a depleted Leicester defence.

      • ElliotJHP
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 13 days ago

        What's the better move?

        A) Johnstone -> Areola, play Areola over Martinez
        B) Coufal -> Tark, play Tark over Grealish/Wood
        C) Neither and burn a FT into the abyss

      • AdamJ91
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 12 days ago

        I don't think I'd ever question this ever again & it might sound ridiculous but play either Coufal/Soucek ahead of Son?

        Think I'm currently on this;

        Pope
        Dias - Cancelo - Digne - Coufal
        Salah - Fernandes - Gundogan
        Cavani - Bamford - Antonio

        (Martinez - Son - Soucek - Dallas)
