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%?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Presser after the match tonight.

    2. LC1
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      I got rid of him for a hit for DCL

    3. hustler7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      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
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      8

    2. JBG
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

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

    3. JammySprat
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Depends on who you're taking out

  3. Andrew
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Do we think Mitchell plays both games for Palace?

    1. Knock Down Your Aerial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Palace look better with him in the squad.

    2. Going Home
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

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

  4. tbos83
    7 months, 4 days ago

    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
      7 months, 4 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
        7 months, 4 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
        7 months, 4 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

    2. FantasyClub
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Kane thrives against the bottom teams

  5. Viper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Is this worth a -8?

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

    1. Scooby75
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Yep

  6. jai1212
    • 7 Years

    Emi
    Stones Shaw Konsa (Burn Struijk)
    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

  7. cescpistols111
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    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

  8. estheblessed
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

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

    Martinez*
    Shaw*, Cancelo*, Stones*
    Bruno*, Son*, Gundo*, Salah*, Barnes*
    DCL*(c), Watkins*

    Pope*, Bamford, Dier*, Konsa*

    1. Lord of Ings

    2. LC1

      Big big points incoming

    3. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years

      120+ pts

    4. Sultans of Ping FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

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

    5. LC1
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 4 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.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        Superb squad there. Nice one.

  11. Viper

    • 11 Years

    Awful news about Alisson's father overnight.

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

    https://twitter.com/SkySportsPL/status/1364855905213239300?s=19

    1. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Terrible news, tough times for him

  12. Fantasydreamer
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 4 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
      7 months, 4 days ago

      B imo. Do you have your WC still?

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

        Used it last week and brought Maddison in!

  13. JOELIO8701
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    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
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Dias, Gundo and Kdb is my guess.

    2. LC1
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Ederson Dias and maybe KDB

  14. Siva Mohan
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    (-8)

    Martinez*
    Dias* | Mee* | Dallas
    Son* | Bruno* | Rafa | Gund* | Salah*
    DCL* | Kane*
    xx | Bamford | Coufal | Bednarek

    TC - Kane

    A. good to go?
    B. WC time

    who to captain out of this lot? Playing my BB

    LLoris Areola
    AWB Dias Cancello Mee Struijk
    Salah Bruno Raph Gundo Son
    DCL Watkins Bam

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Bruno

    2. Gizzachance
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      Bruno for me dcl vc
      City assets more risky in a dgw

  16. mcsteely
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Who to bring in for White:

    A: Digne
    B: Pereria

    1. Siva Mohan

      7 months, 4 days ago

      A

  17. VaVaVoom14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Would you bench boost:

    McCarthy
    Rudiger
    Soucek
    Maia

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      No

    Thoughts on b/boost
    Pope• lowton• bamford coufal ?
    Cheers

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

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

      1. Gizzachance
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 4 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
        Cheers

        1. Siva Mohan
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 4 days ago

          Shaw .. I see it as -2 only

          1. Gizzachance
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 4 days ago

            Cheers

        2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 4 days ago

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

          1. Gizzachance
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 4 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

        3. Going Home
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 4 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
            7 months, 4 days ago

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

  20. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    7 months, 4 days ago

    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
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      would do it

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 4 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. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 4 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
        7 months, 4 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.

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

          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.

    3. JamTart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      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

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        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

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

          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

          1. pingissimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 4 days ago

            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.

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

              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!

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        Yours I like

  21. The Red Devil
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Dallas to Dias
    or
    Lowton to Stones

    either one would be for a hit

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      D to D

      Da & Lo have GW29 .. I would keep Lo

      1. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        Probably using FH in GW29

      2. Honourvolley
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

        Lowton doesnt have 29 anyway

        1. Honourvolley
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 4 days ago

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

    2. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

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

    3. The Nuttman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      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.

      1. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

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

  22. Lindelol
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 4 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

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      A

      1. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

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

    2. The Nuttman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 4 days ago

      A.

      1. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 4 days ago

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

  23. gorzal10
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 4 days ago

    Ings to
    A. Vardy
    B. DCL

    I don't have any lei or eve players.

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

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years

      Thankfully Salah is an attacker not a defender.

      what happened to that rule "so they need to score more goals" 😀

    3. FantasyClub

      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

      Attack best form of defense now. Keep.

    On wildcard and tearing my hair out over this one - Alonso or Castagne?

      Castagne by far. If you have the funds Pereira looks like a great pick too

    Is Pope to Martinez worth a hit this weekend

  27. Viper

    Who scores more?

    A. Robertson (shu, CHE) & Bamford (AVL)

    B. Digne (SOU, wba) & DCL (SOU, wba) -8

    1. Viper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3. ResultatFar

    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
    E) Mee to Ful defender

    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Mee
    Salah Bruno Son Gundo Raphinha
    DCL Bamford
    (Areola Ings Dallas Coufal)

    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.

    Stones or Cancelo on WC?

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