Three Sky Sports Fantasy Football differentials for Double Gameweek 25

The business end is in sight for Sky Sports Fantasy Football managers as we enter the final third of 2020/21.

Here are three relatively low-owned picks for the upcoming Double Gameweek and beyond.

Harvey Barnes – £8.2m

Harvey Barnes has racked up 27 points from his last two fixtures, scoring twice, assisting a goal and earning a Man of the Match award in both games against Liverpool and Aston Villa.

Only two per cent of the top 1,000 players in the game have recruited the future England international, so he could be a potential steal and a differential at £8.2m. He has found the net on nine occasions this season, with four assists to his name.

Put these figures into Fantasy Football points and it translates to 143. For context, this is just two points behind Manchester City high-flyer Ilkay Gundogan (£8.2m) and it places Barnes third in the midfielder charts this campaign. If you are jumping off Leeds or Brighton players, this is one of the leading value-for-money candidates to consider.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin – £9.3m

Calvert-Lewin offsets longest goalless streak with another Fantasy assist

The Everton striker is back amongst our thoughts and considerations, having come off the bench to play a superb cameo in Everton’s win at Anfield in the Merseyside derby, winning a penalty and earning an assist in the process.

It was his first appearance in three after a period out injured, before which he netted in consecutive matches against Leeds and Manchester United. The Fantasy Football returns may come hand in hand with his comeback.

We must not forget that the England forward has scored 13 Premier League goals this season. Despite this, he is in just 0.3 per cent of the top 1,000 teams, with an individual gameday coming up against Southampton on Monday. His ownership should increase anywhere between the five and 10 per cent mark by this time next week.

Timo Werner – £11.1m

Gameweek 9 Scout Picks built on Chelsea and Everton attacking double-ups 1

Ahead of the Southampton fixture on Saturday, Timo Werner had registered 31 points from his last four matches, which included a goal alongside three assists. It is easy to forget that he has supplied eight goals this term, on top of the five that he has scored.

After Chelsea navigate their way through tricky clashes with Manchester United and Liverpool in quick succession, there is some light at the end of the tunnel with Everton, Leeds, West Brom, Crystal Palace, Brighton, West Ham and Fulham all to follow.

Similar to Calvert-Lewin, Werner’s selection percentage (currently in just 2.2 per cent of the top 1,000 teams) will increase quite drastically.

    What do peeps think about Foden's minutes in this DGW? I'm tempted by Barnes and it's either Foden or Son to make way......

    Which City triple up?

    A) Dias, Gundogan, Sterling/KDB
    or
    B) Dias, Gundogan, Cancelo

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I personally think city will ‘manage games’ go 1/2-0 up and hold. Defence double still good for me and im on WC.

      1. StayoutheSpiceZone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        100% agree with this. West Ham, and especially Wolves can cause problems on the break too with over-commiting.

    2. ajk1211
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I’m asking this question too.. Currently going with double City defence (Dias/Cancelo) and Gundog.

      As much as I want KDB, it would probably mean losing Salah. Plus it is good having the extra funds to distribute around the rest of my team.

  8. Atimis
    • 4 Years

    Got that team for a hit, GTG?

    Or play Bam over Raph?

    Martinez
    Cancelo/Stones/Tarko
    Salah/Bruno/Barnes/Gundo/Raph
    Kane/DCL

    Martin/Bamford/Dallas/Coufal

      May play TC but not sure about C yet...

      1. Original Pirate Material
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Armband on DCL for me this week.

        1. Atimis
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Totally tempted to TC DCL

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            I’m doing it. Two great fixtures

  9. Original Pirate Material
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    What do we think on Vardy as a prospect, with the fixture pile up for Leicester do you think he at least starts every game? I know Rodgers was previously managing his workload.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      I was considering him but not sure if he can play 3 games a week.
      And since the penalties have dried up for Leicester he's not been delivering explosive hauls.

    2. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Worth a punt this double imo

    3. NateDogsCats
        2 months, 10 days ago

        He will need to be managed but with Perez out for now and Iheanacho not exactly being the best replacement it's hard for him to drop him

      • StayoutheSpiceZone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Have a look at the line up/match tonight. If it goes deep, Vardy my well have reduced minutes. If they have it wrapped up by 60, I would imagine he will be subbed early.

        1. Original Pirate Material
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          This is what I am hoping for! His stats are looking good over the last 4-6 week and he isnt a bad differential in top 100k. Im on WC.

    4. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Is KDB worth having from now on or do people prefer Sterling?

      1. StayoutheSpiceZone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        KDB (2 x 60 minutes I reckon)
        Sterling (1 x 90, 1 x 15)

        Only my opinion

        1. NateDogsCats
            2 months, 10 days ago

            I can see this for this week for sure with regards to KDB, coming back from injury and big focus on CL and cups this next month

        2. gogs67
            2 months, 10 days ago

            You want the one with least ownership and most points, not what folk say on here.

        3. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Who to buy?
          A) Targett
          B) Dier

          Both play BGW29

          1. Original Pirate Material
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            A

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            GK? Targett regardless

          3. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            A

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          When do we have FFS cup?

        5. Silecro
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          TC on DCL too much or is regular C enough?

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            TC live a little. It’s a DGW.

            1. Silecro
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              I shall follow your advice great Sir

          2. Warby84
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            His fixtures are amazing, but Home form is the slight issue, but then again it is Southampton

            1. Silecro
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              I would be satisfied with goal in each fixture, and he may do a lot lot more, particularly if Everton catches fire after Liverpool like they entered the season. James, Richarlison and Allan all probably fit

              1. Warby84
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Plus 2 lots of bonus on top

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

          Thoughts on this WC Team?

          Martinez
          Cancelo Dias Reguilon
          Salah Bruno Son Barnes Gundo
          Kane DCL

          (Forster White Burn Brewster)

          Got no FH so I have 6 starters currently for GW29 plus ill do Barnes & DCL to Grealish/Raphinha & Bamford in GW29.

        7. vincentwsho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          How do you think Watkins will perform without Grealish in the coming weeks?

          On a WC and thinking between him and Richarlison...already have Kane and DCL

          If I choose Rich, then Ings will play in DGW27. If Watkins, then should be Minamino in 27

          1. StayoutheSpiceZone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            I think Villa have got two nice fixtures and hopefully Smith will just go for it. Watkins will also have chances, and El Ghazi and Traore are not the worst wingers in the world. Barkley worries me though, he looked good before his injury.

        8. StayoutheSpiceZone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          I think it is not worth worrying about re Man City. Everyone pretty much has 2/3 players and they are pretty much going to play one game across the double. If you get another 30-45 mins extra in the other game, they could still do ok. I am looking at Stones, Cancelo and Gundo as single week assets (hopefully they play against Wolves rather than West Ham) and any bonus time - treat it exactly like this! Good luck all!

          1. NateDogsCats
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Same here, I'd love for Dias to play twice with him only playing once last time out but I'll expect once especially with the CL games around this week

              1. Original Pirate Material
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                I think Dias will get both, he had a ‘rest’ with his ‘tummy bug’ the other week.

            • bench boost for every gamew…
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              So Steffen plays vs West ham then?

              Yeah agreed, they are all at risk. Just pick the ones you feel have the best return and sit back.

            2 months, 10 days ago

            A. Ings to Wakins
            B. Sterling, Ings to Gundogan, Kane -4
            C. Mee, Sterling, Ings to Pereira, Gundogan, Kane -8

            • 4 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            So I have Bamford, Dallas, Ralph in my 11 starters. The rest are DGW.

            Should I -4 and get another DGW player?

            I’m looking at a -8, is anyone else doing anything bigger? I’m possibly looking at a -12 or even a 16 but not sure..

                2 months, 10 days ago

                Yes. Looking to do Mee to Targett dbl Villa defense.. Can only see Mee getting 2/3 points

            2. NateDogsCats
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Still contemplating a -12, wouldn't have if not for Maddison's injury mind. Feels wrong but all my changes will be fairly long-term so I have reasoning but starting off the week over 10 points down is tough. That being said no better time to do it

              • fcsaltyballs
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                -12 kinda negates the value of BB though

              • bench boost for every gamew…
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                This depends on your team and long term strategy. If that makes a good bb or Just getting you 11 dgw, instead of say 7 i guess a hit could work. I have usually played aggressively towards dgw but not this year, and i have actually lost on this. I saved Grealish and soucek instead of Just get raphinha.

                The real question is, does all the selected dgw player will play both games?
                I’m currently on -8 with BB plan but now considering WC instead. Undecided still

              1. Ferguson Ings >> Konsa Kane [10DGWs] (play either Bamford or Raphinha)

              2. Robertson Ings >> Digne Kane [9DGWs] (play both Bamford and Raphinha)

              3. Soucek Coufal Ferguson >> Barnes Targett Shaw (-4) (play BB) [Pope Bamford Raphinha Targett] (but no Kane)

              4. Ferguson Coufal Ings >> Aina Konsa Kane (-4) (play BB) [Pope Bamford Raphinha Soucek]

              So after much deliberation and only my TC chip left, I've arrived at this team, which I'm happy with, although usually when I think that I do horrendously.

              Martinez
              Alonso Maguire Stones
              KDB (TC) Gundo Bruno Maddison Barnes
              Kane Watkins

              Bench: Konsa Bamford Coufal Pope.

              Would you switch up the bench to put Bamford first?

                Is Maddison definitely fit?

                Maddison is out. Yes, Bamf first. Why are you putting your only chip on someone yet to play half a game after injury?

                Alonso's fixtures for the dgw are not pretty. He's warming my bench and Bamford is playing instead

              Help please, just want to decide and forget about it...

              1. Ferguson Ings >> Konsa Kane [10DGWs] (play either Bamford or Raphinha)

              2. Robertson Ings >> Digne Kane [9DGWs] (play both Bamford and Raphinha)

              3. Soucek Coufal Ferguson >> Barnes Targett Shaw (-4) (play BB) [Pope Bamford Raphinha Targett] (but no Kane)

              4. Ferguson Coufal Ings >> Aina Konsa Kane (-4) (play BB) [Pope Bamford Raphinha Soucek]

              Cheers guys

              Everyone remember that -4 is only really -2 if you're moving from SGW to DWG players.

              Vestergaard to Aina this week or should I hold him for his double next week? Even if we disregard his game vs City it's basically:

              Aina vs Palace and Spurs or
              Vestergaard vs Everton and Sheffield
