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.

          From 3 to 4 at the back, nothing to do with rested?

      Who scores more in this gameweek only?

      1) Martinez, Mee, Gundogan

      2) Pope, Stones, Soucek

      1. Rep Poulette

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Depends on Rodri injury update - poss 2 if Rodri out cos Gundo will go defensive mid cover then

        1. JJeyy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          he's fit, can punt on foden though

          1. OLB
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            Nah, if fit optn 1

    4. PP6

      What’s everyone Wildcard teams? I’m struggling so much (WC 25 BB 26)

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 4 days ago

        no fixtures yet! feels fake working it out on faith (not that I don't trust crelin's spreadsheets)

      2. Snevitz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        No WC for me but pretty happy with:
        Martinez, McCarthy
        Cancelo, Stones, Coufal, Dallas, Mings
        Fernandes, Son, Grealish, Gundogen, Raphinha
        Kane, Ings, Bamford

        Looks like a good spread for possible fixtures and potential for 11 players in week 29 (with transfers) if tot vs avl is moved there.
        Possibly BB 27 if the fixtures work out how I'm hoping.

        Its tough when we don't know the actual fixtures.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Nice team, very similar to mine.

    5. bigdip
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Mcarthy (FORSTER)
      Pieters Rudiger Cancelo (Justin, Lewis)
      Salah Fernandes Gundo (c) Son (Soucek)
      Antonio Bamford Dcl

      Is a -4 hit worth it for any of the options below? (0 ft and 3.8mn itb)

      A) Forster to Pope (Play Pope for Burnley's DGW 24 and Mcarthy for Southampton's DGW 25)
      B) Salah or Son to Sterling

      1. JJeyy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        no

      2. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 4 days ago

        feels like doing both of those things would be fun.
        maybe keep son rather than salah....money flexibility plus totenham has a gw29 game.

    6. fcsaltyballs
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Martinez
      Coufal Cancelo Stones
      Salah Fernandes Gundogan Raphinha
      Bamford Antonio DCL

      Forster Soucek Robertson Ferguson

      2 FT, 6.9 itb

      1. Have I got the starting lineup right ? Y or N

      2. Forster >> Pope (roll the other FT) ? Y or N

      Thanks all

      1. bigdip
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        1. Y
        2. Y (Im planning to do it for -4 hit)

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        1. N
        2. Y

        1. fcsaltyballs
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          What would you change in the lineup sir?

      3. Snevitz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        DCL to Ings depending on press conference tomorrow and then Antonio to Kane next week.

        1. fcsaltyballs
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          Nice suggestions thank you, will definitely consider that.

          Would you not just play Soucek / Robertson over DCL to save the FT to gear up for 26?

          1. Snevitz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            I like Ings for his double in 25 and it turns out WOL is a good fixture at the moment so I'm moving for him this week.
            If DCL and Antonio look like being out then it's a bit risky to only have 1 playing sub.
            Obviously things are different if either are announced fit as Soucek is a great option to play this week.

            1. fcsaltyballs
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              Thanks mate, makes sense.

              Hopefully the pressers give us more insight

    7. Cahill
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Who scores more?

      A) Sterling soucek
      B) foden Salah

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        B

      2. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 4 days ago

        follow up.

        Sterling & Soucek
        vs
        Grealish & Foden.

      3. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        All season or next time out?

        1. Cahill
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          Next 2/3 weeks

          1. Dwotle
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            4 months, 4 days ago

            B. Soucek's fixtures sour.

    8. davies
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      WC25, BB26, 7-8 players in BGW29...

      Is this the best chip strategy?

      1. Fantasydreamer
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        Yep, and free hit 33 if you have it

        1. Dthinger
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          why? what's happening in GW 33?

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            More fun.

        2. davies
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          TC

      2. OleBall
          4 months, 4 days ago

          That's the way i'm going

        • RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 4 days ago

          seems reasonable.

          i'm saving wc for after 29.

          I've seen plenty either without BB (Or using it elsewhere)...allows moving for GW29 players earlier...only needing 11 for 26.
          Can prob get 9 dgw and 9 gw29 players easy enough with no hits if you're not worried about BB

        • Snevitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 4 days ago

          Depends on fixtures and your team.
          I'm hoping to save WC, BB gwk 27 and have 11 gwk 29 but that's with a specific fixture set up which probably won't happen.

      3. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 4 days ago

        I've not focused too much on possible dgw26, or beyond other than bgw29 in principle.

        But besides Man City, Everton, Villa and Spurs the possible fixtures look tight to me in 26.

        Those playing into City and Everton without a free hit will need to be on Villa and Tottenham for bgw29.

        Unless they'll let that ride?

            This was the one it was supposed to be.

      4. Gemma817
          4 months, 4 days ago

          So, Spurs vs Villa added to BGW29?

          1. Snevitz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            I really hope so as I've already used FH and have 4 players from them already with a plan to get a 5th.

            1. Gemma817
                4 months, 4 days ago

                Exactly why I hope too.

            2. FPL Pillars
              • 4 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              It’s not confirmed but ben says it’s “likely”

              1. Gemma817
                  4 months, 4 days ago

                  Likely based on any event or just his logically assumption?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              Which one to play and who is first sub:

              A soucek (SHU)
              B maguire (wba)
              C bamford (ars)

            4. boroie
              • 2 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              This worth a -4?

              Forster -> Pope (Meslier to start otherwise)
              Soucek -> Foden
              DCL -> Richarlison

              1. Dwotle
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                4 months, 4 days ago

                First two yes, not sure on last one.

            5. Sterling Malory
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              4 months, 4 days ago

              Can I roll my FT here?

              Areola
              Stones Cancelo Shaw Lowton
              Salah Bruno(Vc) Son Gundo (C)
              DCL Antonio
              Martinez Bamford Maddison Dallas

              If DCL/Antonio are injured then I'm happy with Bamaddison coming in I reckon.

              1. Rupert The Horse
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years

                I would. Great bench.

                Monitor DCL news and maybe switch to Richarlison

            6. Gemma817
                4 months, 4 days ago

                Pope passed fit? No flag anymore

                  Robbo to Tarkowski in the cards but for other ft...already have Mee
                  WC next week so its a 1 week punt
                  A) Mendy to Pope
                  B) Brewster to Richarlison ( bench Son)

                  1. Rupert The Horse
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 8 Years

                    May as well do A.

                  4 months, 4 days ago

                  Which of these would you do?

                  A - Forster -> Pope (Meslier to start otherwise)
                  B - Maguire -> Digne
                  C - Soucek -> Foden
                  D - None

                    • 8 Years
                    4 months, 4 days ago

                    A or C.

                  • 9 Years
                  4 months, 4 days ago

                  Who to captain (assuming all fit)
                  A) Gundo
                  B) DCL
                  C) Cancelo

                  • 7 Years
                  4 months, 4 days ago

                  How does this look for a WC draft?

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

                  Martinez - Dallas - 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)

                    Richalison out of sorts this season. Watkins a must i think

                      simply a DGW punt. Will go to Watkins for 26

                  Antonio*, Bamford (DCL*)

                  2FT + 5.1 itb

                  Any transfer ideas other than Forster>Pope?

                  I like A, double Pope this week then double Meslier next
                  Also like C.
                  Do both?
                  (Digne I don't trust....Everton too inconsistent...DCL out too maybe).

                  If DCL is out inj I'll bring forward Watkins/Kane transfer.

                  Who is more of a priority for gw24/25?

                  A) Kane (mci, whm)
                  B) Watkins (bha,LEI)

                    Watkins & Kane both have multi DGWs coming up - I had that and sold DCL for Kane, kept Watkins

                  A - Soucek -> Foden
                  B - Forster -> Pope (Meslier start if not)

                  After finally mustering up the guts to open FPL since the weekend, what I expected, occurred.

                  From rank 178 in GW21, I'm now 1,999 overall (how generous to have me in the thousand bracket FPL lol).

                  Left 35 points on my bench this week, whilst having four captain blanks in the last four.

                  It's a cruel game FPL, it really is...

                      How come Southampton and West Brom aren’t guaranteed doubles for gw26 given they’re both involved in FA Cup tied fixtures for gw29?

                        Because they would play teams who have other games to be rearranged, so those other to be rearranged games might be put there instead (e.g Spurs have games against Southampton and Fulham to be rearranged)

                          Tuchel on Alonso “ We changed to a back four and took Marcos [Alonso] out for this tactical change. ”

                          Does this imply that Alonso won’t be used when Chelsea play a back four?

                          1. marcos11
                              4 months, 4 days ago

                              Reckon Chilwells better than Alonso in a back four

                              1. Milkman Bruno
                                  4 months, 4 days ago

                                  Yeah I was set on benching Chillwell this week and moving on to Dallas for gw25 and now I’m not sure if I should play him this weekend

                                  1. Hitman MHK
                                    • 9 Years
                                    4 months, 4 days ago

                                    Not sure if Newcastle pose an attacking threat enough to force Tuchel into playing a sturdy back 4. I'd see them playing Alonso in a back 3. ASM is dangerous though on the flanks if he finds the space

                                    1. Milkman Bruno
                                        4 months, 4 days ago

                                        Chillwell got a full rest tonight though, I think there is a good chance he starts

                                        1. Hitman MHK
                                          • 9 Years
                                          4 months, 4 days ago

                                          Interesting. Good fixture. May as well keep Chillwell for another and hope he gets the start and if not, doesn't come on for a cameo.

                                Who is the best Southampton defender to go for? On the comparison tool, Vestergaard wins.

                                A) KWP
                                B) Bednarek
                                C) Vestergaard

                                  Is DCL to Richarlison worth a -4?

                                  Son would come in off the bench if I stick with DCL

                                      4 months, 4 days ago

                                      Think I’d stick with Son

                                      4 months, 4 days ago

                                      I generally have a squad of 15 good players but I'd still never bench Son.

                                      How can anyone know before the press conference?
                                      Based on knowing nothing I predict 0 minutes as hamstrings are generally tricky injuries.

                                        Okok there is no money on it was looking for guesses actually.

                                        FUL (H): 30min

                                          4 months, 4 days ago

                                          Why would sub on an injured player?
                                          Or...
                                          If he goes off after 30 mins then no chance he plays a few days later.

                                          Not sure subbing on DCL for 30 mins with a hamstring problem is a good idea.

                                          There will be more dgws, although smaller ones

                                          Should be a few more decent DGW opportunities, for example Everton could have a DGW of Burnley and West Brom both at home in 28.
