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.

    Hi all,

    Was all set on transfers this week until Gundogan played 90 mins mid week.

    Worth upgrading to KDB.

    Also, do we think Mitchel will play any of the games or will it be PVA/EZE?

      Lol...adding more question mark. On similar situation though, now I’m thinking to WC instead of BB to get the solid 11 DGW player. Already on -8 but with McCarthy, Soucek, Mitchell in the team.

        3 months, 18 days ago

        Gotta think about 29 as well. Not many games in that.
        Just gonna do Ings to Kane I think.

        1. FantasyClub
            3 months, 18 days ago

            It’s 4 home games for city in 2 GW’s. Can’t exactly ignore that either.

      2. FantasyClub
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Exactly my dilemma. If he’s worth upgrading or not. Or just bring KDB along side. I don’t see Pep going without Gundogan but surely his minutes will be managed

            Alongside is tough if you want Kane as well. Son won't move and neither will Salah and Bruno

            1. FantasyClub
                3 months, 18 days ago

                I don’t have Salah. But I can have Kane and KDB. I already have Son and Bruno also.

              • FantasyClub
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  I don’t really care for Salah. Way too expensive for what he’s producing.

                    Absolutely with you there. I just know when I take him out, he scores 3 assists 3 and 3 bonus and my weekend is ruined

                    1. FantasyClub
                        3 months, 18 days ago

                        Hahah, that’s what I thought until I realised I did the right thing.

                          With SHU injuries in the back though I am a lil worried I have to admit

                    Tragic news. After Klopp's mother, the club are getting hit real hard.

                  14 DGW players on a BB this week. What could go wrong?

                  Areola Guaita
                  Shaw Stones Cancelo Konsa Digne
                  Salah Bruno Barnes Son Gundogan
                  Watkins DCL (Bamford)

                  GTG?

                  DCL or Watkins?

                  I have no FH and plan to WC GW30.

                  I also own Richarlison

                    • 2 Years

                    Depends

                    1. CrouchDown
                      • 8 Years
                      3 months, 18 days ago

                      On?

                        • 2 Years
                        3 months, 18 days ago

                        How you are set for gw29

                        1. CrouchDown
                          • 8 Years
                          3 months, 18 days ago

                          I would have 5 GW29 players then use FT plus 1/2 hits to get 9/10 out

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  Ings --->

                  A) Kane (C)
                  B) DCL (Captain Bruno)

                  1. Steve The Spud

                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Really depends on your plan for 29, I would be tempted to go dcl but if you want Kane to play in 29 because you don’t have a free hit then that’s different

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 11 Years

                      ye I need him for 29

                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  This is my current team atm: 1FT 1.5ITB

                  McCarthy, Forster
                  Shaw, Stones, Mee, Tark, Dallas
                  Salah, Bruno, Sterling, Son, Raphinha
                  Bamford, Watkins, Brewster

                  should I WC this? or save for GW30/31? Still Have BB and TC

                    • 11 Years
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Possibly Brewster and Forster out and BB?

                    • 3 Years

                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Not a solid BB team imo esp with those fwd.
                    Kane, DCL, Barnes, Digne all could explode and worth a place in BB team

                • Captain_Shirokov
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  Digne, Pereira, Cancelo, Dias, Dallas

                  Too much money in defence on WC? Definitely want to keep Digne/Pereira/Dallas. One or two will make way for Aina and Brighton defence for GW29.

                    great def line and if the rest of your team is solid then no issue

                  Steele Tarkowski Dallas Antonio

                  A) Ings and Antonio to Kane and Brewster

                  B) Ings and Cancelo to Kane and 3.9m defender

                  C) Ings to DCL

                  D) Summat else

                  Morning all,

                  Had my best two gameweeks back to back which has seen me move up 390k places in 2 weeks! Happy days!

                  How's this team looking for DGW26;

                  Pope

                  Raphina Salah Son Gundo Bruno

                  Dallas Coufal

                  Nothing worth a hit?

                  Not expecting to see a green arrow considering most have WC and then BB.

                  Good luck all!

                  (would bench Bamford and Dallas)

                  A) Cancelo/Dias + Pereira (-8)
                  B) Play Dallas + Bamford

                  Keep Dallas or get Stones or another defender 5.2m budget?

                  Already have Shaw, Konsa & White.

                    Yes! I did Digne, Kane, DCL in for -12 but 3 DGW players with great fixtures V 3 SGW players with average fixtures!

                        Stones didn't play in Europe yesterday, so should start. Dias is the better but more expensive pick long term. Pep will rotate both during the run in especially with CL. Depends what you can do with the cash you save on Stones. I prefer DCL to Watkins.

                  Morning all,

                  Mitchel has two great fixtures but serious question marks over him playing any.

                  What does everyone think? Kinda dictates if I do a bench boost or not.

                  Would you give TC to DCL (need a little differential) ?

                  Or safety to bruno ...

                    Is Bruno that safe? I don’t really like his fixtures.

                      Safe in that your rank is protected as he'll have a monster effective ownership

                      I agree I have taken him out till GW30, he got 1 assist in 5 last time his fixtures got tough

                  I think the City v United game dictates that City will have their strongest team for that one. I reckon this might mean Mahrez playing both games this DGW. I know it is punty but I need to differential badly here.

                  1. JammySprat
                    • 2 Years
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Good shout, id say he'd get 90+30 at a minimum. Torres not had many minutes but looks like just a bench option.

                      I can see players like Sterling, Cancelo that have started so many big away games in the past week getting some real rest time this week before the United game. Zinchenko another that could easily start both games this week?

                      1. JammySprat
                        • 2 Years
                        3 months, 18 days ago

                        Highly doubt Zinc plays both. Walker is too good to be getting as much rest as he is but Cancelo is vital to how they are playng atm and he will want to continue his momentum.

                        WHU are top 4 form this season so will likely rest Cancelo in that one where might have more threat and play zinc and walker then against WOL who will play deep Cancelo come back in to unlock.

                        Front line is always a gamble but using the logic above I would think the speedsters play WHU (Sterling, Jesus, Mahrez) and tight area players play WOL (Foden, Bilva, Gundo). If had to choose one I agree with you Mahrez great differential likely to play both.

                  Current team after a -8:
                  Martinez Forster
                  Dias Stones Maguire Digne Cresswell
                  Salah Bruno Gundo Barnes Raphinha
                  Kane Watkins Bamford

                  would you wildcard to this instead?
                  Martinez Fabri
                  Keane Struijk White Konsa Dias
                  Barnes Salah KDB Bruno Raphinha

                    Why switch the players about in the comparison

                  Still don't know who I should captain.. I'm 100pts ahead in one ML(he has Kane and Bruno, as I do) and 50pts in my other ML(he only has Bruno). I'm going to BB this GW, not sure those 2 are going to, maybe the guy that is 50pts behind me. C is on Kane atm, but maybe Bruno is better/safer?

                    Wouldn't worry about them yet, too long in the season left. Go with who you think scores more.

                        Your decisions have gotten you a big lead ahead of theirs, why change it 😀

                          Again you are right, but I feel I'm starting to get complacent so my decision making isn't as thought out as it was at the start when it was closer :/. I'm using world ranking as a incentive to push ahead.

                    Bruno has tougher games and after Spurs display last night i have a bit more faith in Kane delivering

                  Really confused what to do strat wise have all chips remaining (no wildcard) Have just made my transfer ings to dcl Ederson
                  Shaw, Rudiger, Dier, Targett
                  Bruno Gundogan Salah Barnes
                  DCL, Kane
                  Bench Areola, Raph, Dallas, Bamford

                  Do i
                  A) Dallas to Digne for -4, play bench boost and fh in gw29 and hope that everton have a double ge in 28.
                  B) Leave as is and use my TC on Kane/DCL and navigate gw29 without using FH?

                    You're poised to go any direct really. This is best week to BB regardless of your investment in Leeds (who paid off).

                      • 2 Years

                      What do you think of gw30 for a Bb and use the 3 leeds against sheff utd at home? Would mean areola only having the 1 game though?

                      1. JammySprat
                        • 2 Years

                        Well it wouldn't be those players you'd be boosting in 30 if that's there fixture would it? who would be on your bench? I'd be pretty sure this week is the best just for the extra keeper fixture.

                          Good point! Think i will take the -4 and BB with 13 dgws + raph and bamf!

                  Morning, is Digne the only Everton defender worth considering? Coleman and Holgate are cheaper but less likely to get attacking returns. Or are Everton more likely to get cleanies after the one at Anfield?

                      Think 6 will be enough. 2 villa, 2 spurs, 2 leeds/fulham Maybe 1 brighton def

                    My team for this week right now is:

                    Ederson
                    Dias, Lindelof, Digne
                    Salah, Bruno, Son, Gundo, Raphinha Bamford, DCL

                    Meslier, Antonio, Holding, Pieters

                    I used my free transfer to get DCL. I have serious fomo going without Kane, but I can't fit him in without doing a -8 and dropping someone like Salah.

                    Stick with it and hope for the best?
