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.

    My WC team:

    Martinez (Areola)
    Digne - Pereira - Cancelo - Dias (Dallas)
    Bruno - Son - Barnes - Gundogan (Raphinha)
    Kane - DCL (Bamford)

    - gone big in defence, Digne and Pereira two great differentials, one of the big hitters will be downgraded for GW29

    - double City defence instead of midfield

    - double Spurs attack, not sure on this one but playing the fixtures

    Thoughts?

      Like it, although I'd prefer Salah over Son - not sure if you have the money for that

      1. Captain_Shirokov
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I do not, happy to go without Salah.

    2. pingissimus

      Very nice

      Would prefer Ederson Targett over Martinez Dias. Guaranteed DGWs and Dias is strictly 7 point ceiling. Think post 31 or so you'll be happier being able to bench Targett than Martinez

      1. casual69

        i dont belv spurs are playing well enough to warrant 2 attackers atm,

  2. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    On a FH would you be tempted by Mount ? Fixtures not really tough as they seem. Pool could be without Alisson.

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Not for me

    2. NateDogsCats
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I'm going for him and not on FH, decent fixtures after the double and Liverpool not the worst fixture right now, on a lot of setpieces and pens if Jorginho not playing too seemingly, seems like one of the few that's as close to nailed as can be under Tuchel

    3. Lucky Z

      Guys, which one would you advise?

      A. Play Bamford
      B. Grealish => Barnes -4 and bench Bamford
      C. B and BB with Bamford + Dallas + Struijk
      D. C and Forster => Pickford -8

      1. THE KING CANTONA
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        D

        If you don't BB this GW, when would you?

        1. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          WC37, BB38

          1. THE KING CANTONA
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Wouldn't it be risky to BB last GW? coz many teams would be playing for nothing and might field young players, making it hard to predict starting 11.

            1. Lucky Z
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Yes, but you will know who are fighting for places, load WC on these teams and spread cash across 15 players with benching headache only in GW37

    4. Nespinha
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Which is the best duo, and why?

      A) Lookman and DCL
      B) Barnes and Maja

      1) Would you do a -4 do swap Mee for Digne?

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yes I would

      2. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        A and yes

      3. Ceebes
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        A and yes for me.

    5. fcsaltyballs
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Martinez
      Cancelo Stones Robertson
      Salah Fernandes Gundogan Raphinha
      Bamford DCL Ings

      Pope Soucek Coufal Ferguson

      1. Ferguson Ings >> Konsa Kane [10DGWs] (play Bamford or Raphinha)
      2. Robertson Ings >> Digne Kane [9DGWs] (play 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]

      Thanks 🙂

      1. waltzingmatildas

        4

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I like 4 and get BB played otherwise 1

        1. fcsaltyballs
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          What are you reasons, always value your opinion

          1. dunas_dog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Think Leeds can do well against Villa with no Grealish or Cash so Bamford and Raphinha good for BB. Aina in Konsa Kane have doubles and play in 29 so all in all not sure if better chance of using BB and can then sell Pope and Robertson for example to invest elsewhere

    6. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Who is better, Shaw or Keane?
      Ta.

      1. Captain_Shirokov
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Shaw, attacking potential.

      2. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Shaw

      3. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Shaw

      4. Ceebes
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Shaw.

    7. Jönny
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Going back and forth on Kane vs Vardy...

      KANE
      + Good against bottom-half teams
      + Has GW29 fixture so will probably want him then
      - Spurs out of form
      - Would require a -4 to get him in (probably Pope->non-playing GK, so Kane would have to pay off the hit on his own

      VARDY
      + In decent form
      + Likely to be more differential
      + Doesn't require a hit
      - No GW29 game (although i've got my FH and obviously transfers to use)
      - Arguably slightly worse fixtures

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Kane

        1. Jönny
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Kane feels like the defensive move - lots will captain/triple captain... Vardy feels like potentially a good differential.

          Although I don't think I'd captain either – leaning to DCL, triple captain.

    8. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Best move?
      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)

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I like C with Barnes

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Cheers mate. Could backfire but that's where I'm leaning

    9. Mornar Bar
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Martinez
        Mee Dias Cancelo
        Gundo Salah Bruno Raph Barnes
        Kane (C) Watkins

        15 points ahead of my rival in ML, he will play BB (I used mine in GW24) and has 14 DGW players. We both have TC left, should I play TC on Kane this gameweek to reduce damage or should I wait for any other opportunity maybe?

        1. Ceebes
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Try to ignore what your rival is doing - Kane is a good TC option, decide it on its merits. Other options would be KdB/Sterling in GW27 if you look to get them in.

      • dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        No BB or FH but still to play WC. This is team with no hits ( 10 double week players, Burnley defender, double City attack and no Spurs)

        Would you replace Sterling with Barnes*, Bamford with Kane* ( and captain/TC) and Tarkowski with Dias* for -8 ( 11 arguably stronger double week players)

        In both cases 6 week 29 players with time to build to 8/9 and WC 30/31

        Martinez
        Cancelo Tarkowski (Dias)* Shaw
        Salah Bruno (c) Gundogan Sterling (Barnes)* Raphinha
        DCL Watkins

        Pope Bamford( Kane)* Dallas Coufal

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Yeah I think I would do that

        2. OLB
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          I did the -8 and 2 FTs to get that and Vardy over DCL. Hope it pays off.

      • Hig1990
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        G2G?

        Martinez
        Dias, Stones, Digne
        Salah, Bruno, Foden, Barnes
        Kane (C), Watkins, DCL

        Pretty sure I will TC Kane

        1. Ceebes
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Very GTG.

      • Balls of Steel
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Double Gameweek team:

        What's the best move to make here guys?

        Martinez
        Stones Cancelo Rudiger
        Salah Bruno Gundo Son(VTC)Raph
        DCL(TC) Bam

        Pope Ings Coufal Holding

        1FT, 1.7ITB. WC/FH/BB/TC intact

        A) Ings to Vardy
        B) Ings + Raph > Watkins + Barnes (-4)
        C) Ings + Raph > Vardy +Pereira (-4)
        D) Ings + Bam > Kane + Maja (-4)

        Thanks everyone.

        1. Ceebes
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          A for me, avoid the hit.

        2. waltzingmatildas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          I like D

        3. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          D could be very good with nice differential

        4. Gizzachance
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          B is the one I’m probably doing
          C also looks good

      • Ceebes
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Bottomed. 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.

            Thanks all - interesting. I had been leaning A as I am not sure when else I would BB and it leaves me with one extra GW29 player, plus Watkins and Digne should get a DGW in 28 - but will have to ponder now!

        Hi lads,

        I'm in desperate need of advice - A , B or C please!

        A. Ings + Soucek -> Kane + Barnes (-4)
        B. Ings + Son + Soucek -> Kane + Salah + Anguissa (-8)

        Current team:
        Martinez (McCarthy)
        Stones - Cancelo -Robbo - Mee (Coufal)
        Bruno - Salah - Gundogan - Soucek (Raphinha)
        DCL - Ings (Bamford)
        Bank = 5.1

        Much appreciated!

        Who to Triple captain out of
        Bruno Gundo DCL Salha Kane..
        Im on Kane at the minute

        1. FantasyClub
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Kane or Bruno. I’m leaning toward Kane as well

          • Leeds-Utd
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            I don't Kane so I'm thinking Bruno...

          • linkafu
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 19 days ago

            I'm on Kane too but seriously thinking about Salah whom plays against a Sheff without defenders and Chelsea with the very defensive 😉 Alonso against him

          • dunas_dog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            If you have Kane then I would TC him

            1. casual69
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              i think Bru is a no, Kane for me

        2. FantasyClub
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Really big feeling this Barnes train is going to derail with Maddison out. I’m keeping away

          • quayle99
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Currently have Bamford and Rafinha on bench.

            Play one of them over Mee? Whos on a double but tough fixtures.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Raphinha

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Raphinha

          • NED KELLY
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            I remember Captaining Kane a few years back in a doubleGW against good fixtures an he blanked twice I couldn't believe it as he was on fire aswell

            1. NED KELLY
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              This puts me off Kane

            2. Matt Sk
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

              My triple captain last and this season in a dgw scored 4

              1. NED KELLY
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                No way its a cruel game.. Ive got a feeling Kane will blank but I'll probably do it anyway

              Sane,
              Mane
              Some idiots even did Dunk

              Who can forget TC Sanchez 75 points from one player 🙂

            opinion: who are the 3 best strikers for 26-29??

              Kane DCL Vardy.

              But you're not gonna get Vardy probably because of budget. Maja, Diagne, Watkins, Bamford all good.

          • NateDogsCats
              2 months, 19 days ago

              Ederson
              Dias AMN Ricardo
              Bruno Salah Gundo Mount
              Kane Watkins DCL
              (Martinez Burn Cresswell Raphinha)

              This is how I'm likely to set up. I'm likely to ask this again before the deadline, but what do I do here?

              A) TC Bruno
              B) Bench Boost

              Chances of Cancelo and Dias to be rested in dgw? Who is the safer pick? Thanks

                Cancelo will get at least a rest, Dias could easily play both.

                2 months, 19 days ago

                reckon Dias safest but so hard to 2nd guess the man

              My current rank: 300,000.

              Right on the dot. Crap rank...but somehow unique. 😕

              Antonio, Bamford > DCL, Kane

              Worth -8 for two DGWers?

              1. Tcheco
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 19 days ago

                -8 is steep but think those 2 will repay it

                Yep for me, but maybe just Anto to DCL for-4 is enough no? Bamford could have a brace against Villa

                  You prefer DCL over Kane?
