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.

    To play?

    Antonio or Bamford

    Captain?

    Dcl or gundogan

    1. Bushwhacker

      Quite possible those aren't questions . . . Bamford WILL play, so WILL Gundogan.

    2. One of Those Days
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      BamGun

    3. The VAR Team
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Gundford

    How can you have two games at the same stage of the same comp and one has VAR and the other doesn’t? Rubbish

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      It's absurd.

    2. Firminoooo

      Barnsley so unlucky if they lose this.

      Money!

    4. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

      Ground needs to be set up for it, apparently

      1. Wild Rover
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I know the reason why, but it’s wrong

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          So turn off VAR in the Cup?

        2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          I guess the reasoning is that VAR improves the game (lol) so if they have the facility to use it at a ground it gets used, rather than lowering all games to the lowest standard (or some balderdash like that)

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Yep.

            But the inconsistent use of the VAR which can turn on a slightest thing is a thing.

    5. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yeah, ridiculous.

    6. Milkman Bruno
        1 month, 27 days ago

        It is rubbish, Barnsley hard done by

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          But the suggestion here (I think) is to turn VAR off in all cup games, so that wouldn't stop Barnsley being hard done by here?

        2. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Chelsea would have had a penalty in the first half and BBC coverage have all but proven Tammy was onside for the goal. Barnsley were unlucky tho, probably the better team.

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            True

    7. The VAR Team
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      if Spurs play Villa in 29 it won't be too hard navigating the blank anymore. Feels like it's not that big an advantage to have FH anymore

        that game will be a dull game, need some defenders imo

        Free hit will be powerful in a dgw

      3. Fantasydreamer

        GW 33 will be the new template for free hit

      4. AC/DC AFC

        1 month, 27 days ago

        As long as you don't want Man City, Man Utd, Everton, Liverpool etc players in gw27, 28

        ... or will hit like willy nilly in or out of gw29 with 1 WC left?

      Certainly offside!!!

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Chris Waddle thinks not. And he's Chris Waddle.

          Who are we to question the judgement of a man who used to have a mullet?

          Haha Abraham was offside in two passages of that play!!

      2. ivantys
          1 month, 27 days ago

          They just showed another angle, it's not offside. Doesn't matter anyway they robbed them a pen in the first half.

          Behind the ball ; BBC Text just posted a still.

      3. Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        How does this look for a WC draft?

        Pope
        Cancelo - Shaw - Dallas
        Sterling - Gundogan - Bruno - Rashford
        Ings - Richarlison - Bamford

        Martinez - Mitchell - Sanchez - Raphinha

        Can get Kane and one of Grealish or Watkins for 26. Changing from double City defence to double midfield is one concern, and Sanchez could be anyone else really (need a benchable defender for the next few GWs, and Spurs defender seemed a good fit)

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Noice.

        2. Captain_Shirokov
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Son over Rashford?

          1. Scholes Out Forever
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Rashford has Newcastle, West Brom and a double with Palace (and chelsea which is tight game). Son has City and West Ham, and then a nice double, which I could get Kane for, although I'd love both Kane and Son for 26.

            Only way I can get Son in this team is if i keep double City defence and get Son for Sterling, which I could do if Dias is confirmed to be ok

      4. JP\'s
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Who to get

          Cavani or Richarlison?

          1. Steve The Spud
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Cavani all day

          2. One of Those Days
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Richa

          3. Scholes Out Forever
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Im going Richa

            Every game is a 50/50 if Cavani will start

          4. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Prefer DCL with Rich and vice versa. Don’t think the fixtures are there to bring IN an Everton player so Cavani for me especially the next 2

        • One of Those Days
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Captain?o

          A) Cancelo
          B) Sterling
          C) Gundogan

          1. Kay317
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I have same players and going for sterling I think

          2. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Sterling from those

          3. Rog.
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I have the other two but would deffo go Sterling

          Why’s your captain this weekend and why? I’m thinking Bruno because I think he hauls away at West Brom

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Gundogan because City will play a false 9 in at least 1 of the 2 games and when it happens he always hauls

            1. seanie3
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              do we really think everton and spurs are both going to leak tons of goals to city..

              1. Bushwhacker
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 27 days ago

                No and City have been sitting happily on leads.

                • 10 Years

                Yes.

            • 1 Year

            I think WBA park the bus and United fail to break it.

            1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              When was the last time WBA parked the bus successfully? They've only kept 2CS this season

                • 1 Year
                1 month, 27 days ago

                Alladyce is good enough to suss out OGS.

          3. Black Knights
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I think the ‘why?’ for everyone will be because they think the player will haul.

              Stuck between two very different strategies. What do you prefer?

              A) Sterling (c), Adams, Lowton, Gundo (-4)

              B) Gundo (c), Foden, Cresswell, DCL (Bank a free Transfer)

              TIA

                B. I think GW25 is the better GW to target and with 2 FTs you can really attack it.

                Thanks all for your thoughts. I was set on B until the DCL potential injury. I’ll see if there is any more news at least before I make the decision.

              Dias potentially ill. No idea if chilwell will play. Who do I lose for a Burnley defender?

              Thinking to keep dias. Even if he is ill and misses a game he is a cracking long term option. Savong wildcard for a bit.

              Is that the right thing to do? Thanks

                Sell Chilwell for sure over Dias

              All chips and second wildcarders what are we doing now? Free hit in gameweek 29 doesn’t seem of great value now

                Possibly fh33 or the doubles that should come from fa cup semis

                  Yeah just been reading on Twitter about possible FH GW33, seems quite viable

                    More games in 33 than 29, so won't FH be less of an advantage in 33?

                      Yes, precisely.

                Mis-info.

                There's 8 fa cup teams in gw29.

                Half again in 33 or whenever.

                Amazing how those who free hit away can't accept it was a waste around gw18.

                The over planners were caught out and for those who play for some superior strategic position it must hurt.

                But was also entirely foreseeable in the long view and also x weeks out. Not the postponed games but piling in for 15 dgw players.

                  But it wasn't a waste, different for everyone, my FH18 was a great success compared to what I would have put out on the park otherwise.

                  Amazing how those who make such sweeping statements tend to not have a linked team on their profile...

                  There’s not a one size fits all strategy. If there was, we’d all play our chips on the same gameweeks. Different chips work for different teams at different times. You should maybe accept that fact.

              A - DCL

                If chasing a fair bit, then go for it. Vert risky tho, based on history

                Too risky. Make a better bet, just not to fall more behind.

              Pope
              Dias Coufal Taylor*
              Salah Bruno Grealish Gundogan
              Antonio Bamford Watkins

              McCarthy Son Justin Dallas

              2ft 2.9itb

              Worth doing Salah to Sterling?
              Original plan was getting Cancelo and DCL

                Was considering the same but might just get foden instead of soucek now

              DCL to Cavani for the next 2 then switch to Kane for 26?
              Spurs play WHU in 25, can I survive without him for that one.

                  Well I need to get Bamford too, most likely for Antonio so one of the big hitters will need to depart for Kane. Just a matter of when
                  Totally get why you’d say bring in Kane earlier just might involve hits

              Robertson Dias Stones Dallas Coufal
              Salah Bruno Grealish Gundo Soucek
              Kane Bamford Antonio

              Have 1.0 ITB and a use it or lose it transfer.

              No Free Hit left, so need to sort of plan around the upcoming doubles and blanks. Do any of these make sense?

              a) Robertson to Mee (mostly to get this double and raise funds)
              b) Antonio to Watkins (lateral move that gets me 2 extra games in the long run)
              c) Johnstone to Pope (might get me more points this week?)
              d) Something else?

                  My only apprehension is that Liverpool have SHU and FUL coming up, which are pretty juicy for Robertson. Although doing that this week and then Antonio to Watkins next week is probably the play.

              Cancelo Stones Targett

              With WC and BB, 2 FT and 3.5m itb, what would you do? I am leaning towards GW26 with 11-12 DGW players + 3-4 BGW29 players, plus 2 Villa and 2 Spurs... have no idea when to use BB and WC to be honest.
