The best Leeds players to consider for FPL Double Gameweek 25

Leeds come under the spotlight as we begin our look at the clubs with two fixtures in Double Gameweek 25.

The Elland Road outfit are coming off the back of a mixed run of results to face Wolves and Southampton in the coming Gameweek.

With a number of well-owned assets who are still receiving a lot of attention, Fantasy Premier League managers are backing Leeds players to deliver.

But are their high owned assets worth having? And are there Leeds players still flying under the radar? We assess their credentials in this Premium Members article below.

THE FORM

Bamford and Raphinha star in audition for Double Gameweek 25 2

Coming up from the Championship, Leeds have been a revelation this season, with their gung-ho style earning plaudits far and wide.

Their 40 goals this season can only be bettered by teams in the top six.

Unfortunately, this has come at the expense of having a solid defence, with Leeds also shipping 42 goals. Only West Brom have conceded more.

Their up-and-down season can be summed up perfectly from results in their last six Gameweeks.

A fantastic away win at Leicester along with confident wins over Crystal Palace and Newcastle are sandwiched between losses to Brighton, Everton and a battering by Arsenal.

Their 4-2 defeat at Arsenal also showed just how vulnerable they can be at the back without club captain Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m), who missed out through injury.

So, going forward, Leeds are one of the best attacking outfits in the league, just don’t expect them to keep many clean sheets.

    Morning chaps, which BB26 team do you think scores more in 26? I am listing only the different players between the 2 teams:

    Option A (achieved with WC25) - 14DGW + 1SGW
    Targett*, 5.2 defender*, Barnes*, Kane*(C), Ings*

    Option B (achieved with a -4 hit) - 12DGW + 3SGW
    Dallas, Coufal, Salah*(C), DCL*, Watkins*

    In both instances I would have 6 players already for BGW29. Option B allows me to dead-end my team for 29 and then WC out of it in 30.

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years

      Obviously A, but WCing this week into only 6 BGW29 players is puzzling

        I see what you mean. I am trying to maximise the BB26 and could take a hit or 2 to bring in some more 29 players.

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Why not 3xLeeds, 3xVilla, Kane & Son?

          1. Stormbringer22
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            3xVilla + 3xSpurs + Bamford is what I have allowed for on the WC option. So that is 7 players actually, I can't count! Not really interested in Leeds defence if I WC and midfield spots are occupied by DGW players. Will get Raphina for 25 but transfer him out for Barnes in 26

            1. jomikijiq
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Struijk is a great option, especially on WC, since he allows a good structure for the rest of the season. Even if he drops out of first XI he just become a bench fodder.

              1. Stormbringer22

                Can always transfer him in in 27, or 28, or 29. I think I can get enough 29 players using FTs in the subsequent weeks. Appreciate the input mate, you make a valid point!

      not sure, do you have the fixtures?

        Its ok, I’ve just seen your answer above, percentage wise, how accurate to you think that spreadsheet is?

    Anyone considering Alonso?

      Not me personally. Not nailed enough and would rather spend my money on other premium players that are a bit more nailed on

      1. Daniel - When to BB?

        Bit which defender has the higher upside atm ?

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          It is up for discussion I suppose. I am looking to switch to double City defence (have double attack atm) + Shaw. I tend to play 3 in defence most weeks so Cancelo + Dias/Stones + Shaw I am happy enough with

    2. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      If WC I would consider a punt on him. I can't justify using FTs to bring him in.

    Guardiola confirms Kevin De Bruyne will be a part of the travelling squad heading to Goodison Park. “Gundo is much better, but I don’t think is available.” Sergio Aguero will start on the bench.

    Who should I sell from Cancelo and Dias?

    1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Keep Cancelo who has the higher ceiling and I think he is due another double digit haul

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Dias for me

    3. Nay08
        1 month, 24 days ago

        both have the same price and same potential for CS.
        but one is a full-back that often marauding forward so can get a chance for a goal/assist anytime.
        meanwhile, the other one is a centre back that a chance for goal/assists mostly only come from set pieces.

        so in a situation like this, I mostly choose the fullback. in this case, Cancelo to keep.

      Best moves with 2fts?
      This week - Son and Antonio - Raphinha and Ings
      Next - DCL/Ings - Kane

      Martinez Pope
      Cancelo Stones Mee Dallas Coufal
      Salah Bruno Son Gundo Soucek
      DCL Antonio Bamford

      1. Tonyawesome69 WC31 & FH…
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Soucek to Raphinha and roll 2nd FT. If Soton get confirmed double double then use 2nd FT for Antonio to Ings

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Hmm yeah probably sensible, but wouldn't have enough for Kane next week then.
          Cheers

            I would probably downgrade Son to Barnes and use those funds to get Kane in. I'm not convinced with the Spurs double-up. Most likely due to Kane being out injured affecting Spurs and Son. Kane is a better captaincy option over Son due to pens and has had some rest from his injury.

            Vardy is a good alternative for Kane since you already have Son. LEI have some good fixtures from 26 onwards. Looked very good in the Liverpool game

      Speaking head in silhouette Pep Guardiola on whether Ilkay Gundogan could be out for a while: "I don't think so, he feels really good but not travelled because we don't want to take a risk. Maybe if it was a final or something special, maybe we'd have taken a risk. It's not a big issue."

      1. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Perfect for us Gundo owners but non captainers

        1. Silecro

          19 points is still enough of a punishment 😀

            Yes.. I know.. don’t remind me as a Pope captained

      RMWCT? Planning to bench boost in 26. Will move Dallas to Shaw.

      Martinez Sanchez
      Targett Dias Stones Dallas Holgate
      Salah Son Bruno Gundogan Raphinha
      Bamford Watkins Kane

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Looks good. I don't love Everton defence so I'd probably do a Brighton def for Holgate

    7. Oggle22
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Martinez
      Tarkowski Stones Cancelo
      Salah Son Bruno Gundagon
      Antonio Bamford Cavani

      Steele Soucek Konsa Holding

      Antonio to Ings is my thinking but is Ings a trap rough game against an improved Chelsea defence maybe Soucek to raphina and bench Antonio?

      Cheers

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I prefer Raphinha over Ings. But both good options

      2. Nay08
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Southampton's form seems too unstable right now. but I'll choose Ings if they get triple DGW(25-27).
          if not i choose Raphinha

        Gundo and Sterling (C) here. Feels weird to be glad Gundo is out...

        1FT, 4.6 ITB, thoughts?

        Martinez, Pope

        Cancelo, Dias, Dallas, Coufal, Lowton

        Salah, Fernandes, Son, Gundogan, Anguissa

        Cavani, Bamford, Antonio

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Anguissa -> Raphinha or Antonio -> Kane?

          1. The Mighty Whites
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Yeah, was thinking Anguissa to Raphinha - cheers!

        Everton have played better against big teams this season and have managed to bounce back after some abject performances against so-called lesser sides. I’m not expecting a result for them this evening, but there’s a glimmer of hope.

        Allan back could be a big boost. I think King might get his first start too.

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Allan is old I feel and he makes mistakes. Don't think he makes the team better imo

          1. Third Eye Vision
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            He seemed to be at his best just prior to his injury. Don’t know if you saw those games.

            I think he’s taken a little while to get settled like all new signings. Agreed that he made some mistakes earlier in the season.

            I just fear that he’s made of glass and will not be able to stay fit.

        2. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          City will win 1-0 imo and just grind it out.

        3. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Allan's return should be huge, his defensive ability is elite and that allows Rodriguez, Digne, Rich etc to get more opportunities to attack and use their talents. City have been fantastic but Gundo has been responsible for much of the goal threat, will be interesting to see how Pep responds to the setback. 0-2 my prediction.

        4. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Article on Leeds assets for DGW25, and no mention of Jack Harrison.

        Soton will be without KWP - just saying.

        Harrison is as good an option as Raphinha, if not better.

        1. Third Eye Vision
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I considered the triple up actually - Bam, Raph & Harrison, but too many transfers needed to sort for 26.

          Plus, KP being out doesn’t help.

        2. Baines on Toast...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Harrison has a bad habit of getting hooked early.

          Harrison always feels like a 1pointer or double figures...just need to get lucky with him but could pay off. I still prefer Raphinha

        Thoughts on this WC Team for 25, BB in 26
        Meslier
        Dallas, Dias, Stones
        Barnes, Fernandes (VC), Rashford, Gundo
        Kane, Bamford (C), Ings

        Bench: Martinez, Dunk, Grealish, Targett

        In 26, -4 Hit for Meslier > Areola & Rashford > Son. Captain Kane in 26.

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Looks decent, no Salah is risky and you're transfers seem a waste - I'd just get Son now and Areola might not have a double so just get McCarthy now (although not that convinced on Saints defence to be honest!)

          1. LIH0U
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Yea I've taken an interesting strategy, I haven't had Salah all season... Definitely been a rollercoaster lol.

            Rashford over Son is a punt that I'm weighing up still really. Rashford vs Newcastle I'm hoping the errors of WBA are ironed out and he can get a decent haul there vs Son @ WHU. The Areola one I'm really just relying on Ben Crellin being right, as you say though the probability of FUL DGW seems to be deteriorating by the day, so McCarthy was one I was looking at too, despite their frailties in defence recently. Will definitely take your advice on board though, cheers!

            Out of curiosity where would you fit Salah in there? Would require either Kane or Bruno out, which is a really tough toss up IMO.

      10. Nay08
          1 month, 24 days ago

          which option better folks?
          1. DCL to Kane and one of the following:
          A. Mitchel to Dallas. and play Dallas + Matheus Pereira
          or
          B. Matheus Pereira to Raphinha. and play Dias + Raphinha

          2. Mitchel + Pereira to Dallas + Raphinha.
          play both and transfer in Kane next week.
          but will only have 10 DGW players plus one single gw to play (either Creswell, Bamford, Raphinha, or Dallas).

          Dodged a bullet in cancelling my BB this week.
          Had a bench of Mendy DCL Antonio and Coufal. And if Dias doesn't play then Coufal comes in.

            Meanwhile I threw away 31 points by not going for it.

            I was close to doing Mitchell > Lowton and BB'ing. But decided against it after Antonio doubts.

            Would've had a bench of: Martinez, Antonio, Son, Lowton.

          On WC, are Son and Kane both essential or is it ok to go without one? Gives a better balance to the team.

            None is essential. I might get Son though.

            Salah, Fernandes, Raphina, Gundogan, Sterling
            Adams, Bamford, Ings

            Who do I bench?!

            Is Neto -> Raphinha worth a -4?
            Team would be:
            McCarthy
            Dallas Mee Cancelo
            Raphinha Salah Fernandes Son Gundo
            Ings Bamford
