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.

    Guys which one do you suggest for bench boost -
    1. Ings -> DCL
    2. 4.0 -> Areola

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      both?

    2. Poison Apple
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      shouldnt bench boost if we know there is a player not playing...

        Thank u guys

    I would love for Grealish to be fit. Maybe I'm just being stupidly optimistic, but I think there's a chance. If he does indeed have shin splints and no stress fracture, he could be fit in time.

    Would be so good to punish the sellers with a DGW of lee/shu. Also saves me a transfer and gives me an extra player for GW29.

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Agree. If he's not fit, I'll just bench him and play Bamford instead.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I'm bench boosting :/

        If he's not fit I'm gonna get Barnes instead. It costs me an additional -4 now and to buy Grealish back in 28 but certainly worth it if Grealish is out for a while.

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Fair enough. I think you'll be selling tbh, Smith obviously won't give anything away in the press conference which is annoying.

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I would too - Ings to Watkins feels like the best move, but only if Grealish is fit!

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Do you have DCL? Ings > DCL is the obvious move.

        If you already have then yeah Watkins is great. He's probably still worth it even with Grealish out. That DGW is really nice - lee/shu. And Watkins has a potential DGW in 28 and a game in 29.

        I'm 90% sure I'm buying him regardless of Grealish's fitness.

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Already have DCL. Trying to get up to Kane but it's just not possible.
          Leaning towards
          Mee to Targett or
          Ings to Watkins/Richarlison

    3. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      The question is he will be out for 1 or more matches only.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I'm selling if he's out even a single match.

    4. Ian Davis
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Shin splints take weeks to recover, he definitely won’t play vs Leeds. I’m a Villa fan so I hope I’m wrong!

  3. RamaJama

    With salah so low down on the captaincy poll, his damage will be limited,

    currently trying to convince myself to go KDB over over salah on WC

    1. Hybrid.power
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Go for Kevin.

    2. Mufc202020
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I’ve opted for KDB over Salah on my wildcard! So probably the wrong thing to do haha!!

  7. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Bottomed:
    Best replacement for Mee - ideally to play in 29

      B

  9. ZAMUNDA
    • 4 Years

    Is Mee to Digne/Pereira worth a -4 hit?

    1. Mufc202020
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I would say so yes. Either

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I think so

      No

    4. Original Pirate Material

  10. Mufc202020
    • 1 Year

    Ederson on penalties please!!

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Pep told him to get back last time he started towards the other side of the pitch

      1. NateDogsCats
          2 months, 18 days ago

          He also wasn't happy with Rodri taking it so it's hard to know who's next, how many now have missed at least 1?

          Gundo
          KDB
          Aguero
          Jesus
          Mahrez
          Sterling

          Silva or Foden next if not Ederson?

        • Mufc202020
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Did Pep actually tell him to get back? It was that just B Silva??

    2. StevenW
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Ings to DCL is the move right?

      WC last week, not sure why I went with Alonso, trash fixtures & no BB.

      1ft
      Martinez (Fodder)
      Cancelo, Shaw, Dias (Alonso, Dallas)
      Salah, Bruno, Barnes, Gundo (Raph)
      Kane TC, Watkins, Ings / DCL*

      1. Bucket Man
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Yes looks good

    3. Kudo Warrior

      For those of you unsure of how Barnes will do with Maddison out i'd advise reading both FPLFoxy and BigmanBakars Twitter breakdowns:

        Vardy subject to mins played tonight.

      2. Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        It means?

    4. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Play Raph or Bam?

      Currently on Bam but the more i think of it maybe Raph is the way to go?

      1. JamTart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Raph

      2. Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I'm going Raph

    5. JamTart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Replace Coufal with a double up on Villa def or take a punt on spurs? Surely at least 1 CS for spurs!

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        If I knew who would start for Spurs I would. Leaning towards Targett

        1. JamTart
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Dier seems a safe but unexciting choice?

    6. Notorjus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      A, B or C?

      A. Mee to Reguilon for free
      B. Mee to Digne (-4)
      C. Bamford to DCL (-4)

      Cheers.

      1. Nedvěd11
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        What is the 2nd transfer on B & C?

        1. Notorjus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Johnstone to non playing GK, have Martinez

      2. Bucket Man
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        A. Keep Bamford. Hit for defender even though in a DGW not for me

    7. Harmonica1967
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Worth a -8 for the following moves? Would then BB this week, with 12 players on doubles.

      Ings, Foden, Pieters to Watkins, Barnes, Keane/Evans

      Team would be:

      Martinez
      Cancelo, Keane/Evans, Rudiger, Targett
      Salah, Bruno, Son, Barnes, Gundo
      DCL

      Meslier, Watkins, Bamford, Cresswell

    8. poulteren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Bamford to DCL and dallas to Strujk for -8?

      Y or N please

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

    9. Krispy Kreme
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Is a -12 for a bench boost too much?

      Coufal, Ings, Raphinha, 3.8 fodder -> DCL, Digne, Pereira, Barnes

      1. OLB
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Not too much for those changes. All you would keep after DGW.

        1. Krispy Kreme
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Martinez
      Cancelo Dias Lowton
      Grealish* Salah Bruno Gundo
      DCL Kane Bamford
      Pope - Raphinha - Dallas -Coufal
      0.9itb 0ft

      Already made an early move and likely TC Kane, with WC after BGW29. Anything worth changing here with Grealish the main concern?
      A. Hold and let a Leeds player come in if needs be.
      B. Grealish to Barnes/Traore (-4)
      C. Lowton to defender (up to 5.4) (-4)

    11. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Got that team for a hit, GTG? Maybe TC?

      Or play Bam over Raph?

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

      Martin/Bamford/Dallas/Coufal

      1. RamboRN
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Exact same team as me apart from i have Lowton over tarko. I think between raph and bamford its quite close, raph arguably on better for but bamford on pens, I am currently playing bamford but could change my mind haha.

      1. Tonyawesome69

        Prob no

      Bench fodder keeper
      A. Fabri 3.9
      B. Forster 4.0 - gamble the 0.1 in the off chance he replaces McCarthy

      Main GK is Martinez

        A.

        Even if he does replace McCarthy what's the point? You're just gonna play Martinez every week. If Martinez gets injured, you replace him probably with Lloris or something.

      Hola amigos,

      Will GW26 be classified as a February gameweek, or March?

      I ask as we have a manager of the month award in our money league, which I'm clinging onto by a thread!

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Deadline is 27th Feb and should be part of Feb GW for leagues

    17. CarelessGenius©
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Worth getting KDB for GW26?
      Will he start both games?

      1. marcos11
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Doubt he’ll start both but I could be wrong

      2. Nedvěd11
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Guys,

        Playing BB this round, but should I do -4 for Bam -> Watkins?

        Got

        Martinez, Pickford
        Dunk, Cancelo, Shaw, Dier, Digne
        Bruno, Gundo, Raph, Sterling, Son
        Kane, DCL, Bam

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Wait and see for Grealish injury update before getting a Villa player

      3. b91jh
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Not sure on how many hits, or whether to take hits.

        A) Dallas: effective games from 26-29: 4 (AVL, whu, CHE, ful)
        B) Konsa (-4): effective games from 26-29: 5, possibly 6 (lee, shu, WOL, new, eve?, TOT)
        C) Digne (-8): effective games from 26-29: 4, possibly 5 (SOU, wba, che, BUR, AVL?)
        D) Ricardo Pereira (-8): effective games from 26-29: 4 (ARS, bur, bha, SHU)

        C and D could be a -4 if I get Watkins instead of Kane this week.
