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.

    Any updates on Cavani at all? I see he is now orange flagged at 50%?

      Presser after the match tonight.

      I got rid of him for a hit for DCL

      Will await presser! Already got DCL.

    What is the maximum amount of hits you would take to get a Bench Boost squad?

    1. hustler7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      8

    2. JBG
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      -8 maybe -12 if it's a "must have" player with great fixtures.

    3. JammySprat
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Depends on who you're taking out

    Do we think Mitchell plays both games for Palace?

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Palace look better with him in the squad.

    2. Going Home
      • 9 Years

      I’m deffo starting him this week. No guarantees, but they only conceded once when he played Good effort for them

  4. tbos83

      Feeling like Bruno and Kane, the top captaincy options, could both be traps. Bruno unlikely to get much against Chelsea and Kane is facing two of the toughest defences.

      1. JBG
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Bruno will probably get a pen against Chelsea(wouldn't really surprise me) and against CP he could easily get a goal and an assist. Kane is my bigger doubt, even though my C is on him atm. Spurs should really win both matches with ease, despite their form or at least Kane should easily get 1 goal in each match.

        1. Big Ping
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          With Spurs results so far I really don't think they can be expected to win these matches with ease. Leaning towards Bruno myself.

        2. FantasyClub
            2 months, 21 days ago

            You know what’s going to be so annoying for me owning both. The one I don’t captain I would still want him to haul coz he’s on my team of course but not because I don’t want to regret my choice of captain lol

        3. FantasyClub
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Kane thrives against the bottom teams

          Is this worth a -8?

          Robertson & Bamford - > Pereira (any defender) & DCL

          1. Scooby75
            • 1 Year

            Yep

          Mane Son Bruno Gundogan Raphinha
          Ings Bamford Kane

          0.6 in the bank

          I have some options
          A. Ings/Bamford to DCL/Watkins
          B. Bamford/Ings/Raphinha to Vardy/Watkins/4.5m
          C. Mane/Ings/Bamford to Vardy/DCL/Barnes

          Thoughts on this -8? Planning to BB this week, use FT's to make a team for GW29 and then WC for GW30. No other chips left. Any other suggestions? 1FT, 0.3 ITB.

          Werner + Bissouma + Grealish -> DCL + Barnes + Gundogan

          Ederson Button
          Dallas Rudiger Holding Lowton Kilman
          Salah Fernandes Son Grealish Bissouma
          Werner Ings Bamford

          BB final. Hit the save button and that's it now;

          Martinez*
          Shaw*, Cancelo*, Stones*
          Bruno*, Son*, Gundo*, Salah*, Barnes*

            • 11 Years

            Looks like enough bench boost points there to possibly cover any Kane haul.

          5. LC1
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Just looking at this again and it's annoying me how good it is haha. Wish I WCd last week to bench boost a team like that this week.

            Awful news about Alisson's father overnight.

            I presume he'll be out of the Liverpool team for a few games at least

            • 3 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Take a -4 to go Maddison to Barnes and play bench boost (along with aerola, Dallas and raphina)

            Or

            just bench him and play TC instead (on Kane or DCL)?

            1. JBG
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              B imo. Do you have your WC still?

            Ok real talk - who the hell do we think is gonna play a double for city?! apart from Ederson. Will Gundo still play despite UCL 90? Sterling and Foden subbed so they due to start? Cancelo benched, Stones starts? I actually think KDB might get most mins from attackers but I won't be going near him

            1. JBG
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Dias, Gundo and Kdb is my guess.

            2. LC1
              • 6 Years

              Ederson Dias and maybe KDB

              Yes.. Coufal to some DGWer would be better too (you must be keeping him for GW29)

              1. Gizzachance
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                Took a - 4 to bring in barnes and Watkins
                Coufal out be - 8
                Could do up to 5.1 Shaw, Keane/holgate etc

                  In the same boat, between Keane and Shaw. Who do you choose?

                  1. Gizzachance
                    • 6 Years
                    2 months, 21 days ago

                    Shaw getting couple of assists lately, Keane capable of a goal, eve don’t get many cs, got decent fixtures
                    Utd have shown they can get 0-0 v top teams, pool, city Chel etc

                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  It’s only -4. It’s not linked to your other hit

                  Look at Villa defence. Double this week and still play in 29

                  1. Gizzachance
                    • 6 Years

                    Good point on gw 29, have Martinez,
                    Targett, ? Maybe dier tot have dgw plus gw29

            Any fans of this minus 12?

            Pope to Ederson
            Tark to Reg
            Lowton to Pereira/Digne
            Vardy to DCL

            Gives this BB

            Ederson (Martinez)
            Stones Shaw Reg Pereira/Digne( Dallas)
            Mo Bruno Son Gundo (Raph)
            DCL Watkins (Bamford)

            1. Siva Mohan
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              would do it

              1. pingissimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                It's tempting isn't it

                Vardy and triple Burnley defence have been good for me on WC24 but this would give back around half the points gained. Largely comes down to Vardy DCL in 26 and possibly 28 where Vardy had SHU v that possible DGW

                Alternative is just Pope and Tark to Ederson and Konsa and roll with Lowton

            2. NateDogsCats
                2 months, 21 days ago

                Not sure it's necessary, you're getting rid of 4 players that already have doubles, if you're doing a few with one game to 2 then maybe but this way seems risky, I could absolutely see your original 4 outscoring the other 4 and that's not even taking into account the -12

                1. pingissimus
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  Absolutely unnecessary 🙂

                  I'll almost certainly stick on basis of Vardy - a player I trust. DCL is the draw but he isn't trustworthy for me.

                    Agree, looks a transfer back after cos Vardy the far better player. I've just bought Vardy over DCL as season keeper. Buy Digne instead if you don't have him.

                Go for it.

                I'm doing one for
                Bamford, Antonio, Salah, Coufal to Kane, DCL, Barnes, Targett.

                The swap to a double game player means the hit is only -2 if they play both games for 60.

                People get scared by the original number but each hit should be assessed individually

                  Wrinkle is I'm losing 4 DGWS for DGW upgrades so the -12 stands

                  It's a fun play and could be massive as all the incomers have high ceilings - bar Ederson who's there as the guaranteed double DGW defender

                    That's true. Does make it riskier guess it depends on your ML and rank?

                    Just seen your comment on mine. Cheers. I've had some slack for it but now I've thought it up I feel i have to follow through. Salah is the only real worry!

                    Might do Dier over Targett to avoid the double up. Fulham and Burnley aren't big goal threats

                      Regretting Mo slightly

                      Have him as a hedge and was "banking"on SHU and Fulham. Less sure now.

                      Rank rising is the best I can say! Been in the same position in each of the last 2 seasons and ,managed top 100k and top 50k just. Hoping for a repeat.

                        Always punishes me when I remove him but it's time here I feel.

                        I can WC in 30 too.

                        You seem in good shape to manage it mate! Good luck this week!

              Dallas to Dias
              or
              Lowton to Stones

              either one would be for a hit

                2 months, 21 days ago

                D to D

                Da & Lo have GW29 .. I would keep Lo

                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  Probably using FH in GW29

                  Lowton doesnt have 29 anyway

                    2 months, 21 days ago

                    Depends on your other options. I’d say Dias for security. Get back Dallas later if needed.

                • 8 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                I have Mee and Dallas and am doing Mee to Dias for a hit. Playing Dallas.

                Neither, Dallas out just seems like already committing a later to transfer to buy him back and Lowton to Stones is better but Stones is far more likely to miss games.

                  • 6 Years

                  I have just two city, cancelo & gundo, want to get a defender as third

            4. Lindelol
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              A. (This is with a single hit)
              Pope
              Stones Cancelo AWB
              Bruno Salah Barnes Gundo
              DCL Kane Bamford

              B. (This is with FH)
              Ederson
              Dias Digne Dier
              Bruno Salah Barnes Hamez
              DCL Kane Watkins

              What should I do? Take a hit and go with A team or FH to the B team

                  B. (Pope, Stones, AWB, Cancelo, Gundo, Bamford)
                  Each player in A can easily outscore in B plus its without hit? so why not B?

              With the Alisson news - tempted just to drop salah - defence is already in tatters

                  With the defence being so weak the attack is having to work hard as well getting back

                    He might still play anyway, look at what happened with Aurier last season and Kilman this season. People react differently to things like this, some can't cope and need to grieve and have time away, some can't deal with not being busy and having something to occupy them and their mind and to stay focused on. Tragic for him though

                  What to do with Ings? Obviously a complete fail this week, but he does have a double (shu, mci) next gw. Could just bench and play Bamford

                  A) Ings to Watkins
                  B) Ings to Richarlison
                  C) Ings and Son to Kane and Barnes/Pereira (-4)
                  D) Mee to Targett

                  Hi All, this one is doing my head in so I would be very grateful for thoughts/comments. Context: I have BB, TC and WC remaining, but no FH.

                  Team:

                  Martinez / Pope
                  Dias / Stones / Lowton / Coufal / Holding
                  Gundo / Salah / Bruno / Grealish / Raphina
                  Bamford / DCL / Antonio

                  Plan A: Holding, Grealish and Antonio to Digne, Son and Watkins (-8) - PLAY BB

                  Plan B: Grealish and Antonio to Kane and Barnes (-4) - SAVE BB

                  Thoughts greatly appreciated. Cheers.

                    Would ship in gw29, so basically, who scores the most points from gw26-gw28?
