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.

    Getting Kane, who to sell?

    DCL - Bamford - Antonio

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Antonio

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Antonio

    3. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Antonio

    4. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Antonio

    5. NateDog
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I'll go against the grain and say Bamford if you don't have value built up in him, I'd much prefer to have Antonio v Leeds than Bamford v West Ham next week

      1. Cojones of Destiny
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        with this logic in mind i’m probz getting soucek/lingard in place of raph by keeping bam

        1. NateDog
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Soucek could be big threat, Leeds concede a lot from setpieces and Soucek and Ogbonna scored last time out

  2. Jonesy
    • 11 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Pereira, Veltman and Lookman or Targett, Dunk and Raphinha?

    On a WC and really can't decide, more upside with Pereira over Targett but the latter gives an extra player for GW29.

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      2nd combo for me

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        This

      2. Jonesy
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Cheers.

    2. NateDog
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Veltman possibly a risk now Lamptey could be back soon

  3. b91jh
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Bottomed.

    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.

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      B probably edges A

    2. plt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I'd go with A. Unless you can be pretty guaranteed that the player you're going for is going to get you back your 4 or 8 point hit, plus more, then why risk it? Dallas has been doing well and has attacking potential, like the others, so you could easily see him score more over that period than the others, especially once you take the points hit

  4. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Worth BB this team?

    Martinez, DDG
    Stones, Dias; Digne, Targett, Dallas
    Salah, Bruno, Barnes, Gundogan Raphina
    Watkins, DCL (VC), Kane (c)

    1. g40steve

    5. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes imo

    6. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Willcost me -8, though, with TC and FH left

      1. LC1
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Just seen this.. I'd still take the -4 and BB, however could just TC Kane

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Thanks,

          Would be keeping Steer instead of Martinez or Coufal instead of Target

    7. LC1
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Yes quite obviously

  5. wulfrunian
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    I will start Mee,should i start Johnstone over Pope?

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Start Mee and Pope

      1. wulfrunian
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Johnstone could keep a cs vs Brighton.

  6. TB303
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    So I have Bamford, Dallas, Ralph in my 11 starters. The rest are DGW.

    Should I -4 and get another DGW player?

    No money itb

    1. Tomerick
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Nope all could explode in the single fixture imo.

    2. marcos11
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Do you have fh left?

    3. Mr. O'Connell

      Same as me. I'm happy to play them.

    4. TB303

  7. Tomerick
    • 7 Years

    1. marcos11
      • 1 Year

      Werner and take your pick of the Leeds pair

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      B and C if Phillips out. B and A if Phillips back

    3. Bucket Man

      Werner Raphinha

    5. Tomerick

    think im g2g, captain choice ok? playing my BB

    LLoris Areola
    AWB Dias Cancello Mee Struikj
    Salah bruno(c) Raph Son Gundo
    Watkins DCL Bam

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      If Phillips back(I doubt it) Struijk could be on bench. Phillips back in CDM. Llorente and Cooper in CB. Otherwise G2G

  9. jimbo90
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Martinez McCarthy
    Shaw Cancelo Dias Elmo Burn
    Salah Bruno Gundo Son Raph
    Kane (c) Bamford Watkins

    0.0 ITB. On a -4 atm. Worth taking another hit for McCarthy > Areola? Also want DCL in my team but can't figure how

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Save

  10. Pukki Party
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    BB or TC here? *=sgw 1ft 0.0itb

    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Taylor
    Salah Son Bruno Gundogan
    DCL Bamford* Ings*

    Ramsdale Soucek* Holding* Dallas*

    A) take a -4/-8 remove Ings, Holding and (Soucek) and use BB

    B) TC (who?)

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Not a BB for me anyway

      1. Fit_to_drop
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 28 days ago

        What are you moving them to?

        1. Pukki Party
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 28 days ago

          Thinking Ings, Holding to Watkins, Digne -4

          1. Pukki Party
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 28 days ago

            Or Ings, Soucek to Watkins, Barnes -4

    2. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      TC Bruno? Holding a doubt. And lots of tough SGW fixtures

      1. Pukki Party
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Yeah TC for free looks tempting.

  11. Bucket Man
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    BB this week. Have FT left but could really save for DGW as have core of GW29 players. Anything worth a move? 1FT 0.9ITB

    Martinez
    Cancelo, Dias, Shaw
    Salah, Bruno, Gundogan, Raph
    Kane, Bamford, Watkins
    Areola, Barnes, Konsa, Dallas

    A) Dallas to Keane/other (got Dallas cheap)
    B) Raph to Pereira/other
    C) Save

    1. waltzingmatildas

      C

      1. Bucket Man

        Thanks

  12. Nigawan
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Why no one mentioned about vardy for dgw ? Am I missing something

    1. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Yes, you are missing posts mentioning him. I've seen many. Read more pages?

    2. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Good option, but most who have a spot for an expensive fwd going Kane, and others have players in 6-7m market.

    3. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Good option. Just Kane, DCL, Watkins many with Bamford

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Prioritising Kane and can go cheaper by getting Barnes

    5. b91jh
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Barnes offering same explosiveness at 3m cheaper, blank in 29 unlike Kane.

  13. Ohh1454
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Will bench boost ? GTG?
    Ederson
    Konsa Shaw Dias Soynouc
    Bruno Son Barnes Gundogan
    Kane(C) DCL
    Bench - Areola Raphina Bamford Targett

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Yes, its decent.

    2. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I would be happy to do the same with your team. Especially if you have FH.

  14. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Am I in the minority that won’t have DCL?

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I dont have him. Would like him. Everton are inconsistent though so its not a guarantee that they will do well.

    2. Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I can't decide.. I'll either be getting him or Kane

    3. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      As soon as I saw this DGW I had to have Kane C, cannot fit DCL in?
      Everton are either red hot or luke warm, hoping for the later?
      Seeing lots of teams without Kane, Son & Salah so again relying on these to help?
      Kane & Son was huge for me when they were on fire 🙂

  15. Dosh
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Free hit team:
    Ederson
    Pereira Digne Stones
    Salah Bruno Gundo Barnes
    Kane DCL Richarlison

    Are these transfers worth playing the free hit for?
    Martinez Mee Cancelo Son Bamford Ings --> Ederson Pereira Stones Barnes Kane Richarlison

    1. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      No

    2. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      If you can get by for BGW then looks good. Would rather Watkins then Rich personally

    3. NateDog
      6 months, 28 days ago

      No, you're moving 4 players with doubles and 2 with singles to 6 with doubles, free hit will be far more valuable for BGW29

  16. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Which move do you prefer?
    A) Mee to Targett
    B) Ings to Richarlison
    C) Ings to Watkins
    D) Both for -4

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      C

  17. Palmipedo
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Do not ask me why I have 6.2 in the bank. What would you prefer for -8?
    Antonio,Ings and Grealish to Kane, DCL, and Barnes (or son)
    Antonio,Ings, Mee to Kane,DCL Cancelo
    Other options?

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      the first option you proposed.

    2. Poison Apple
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Kane, DCL, and Barnes for me and use the money for other improvement. If no FH for GW29 then Kane, DCL, and son.

    3. Palmipedo
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Thank you both

  18. Poison Apple
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Pope + Bam + Dallas + White

    0.5ITB. Anything for a -4?
    Gonna BB

  19. Pat Bonner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Currently got Areola Dallas Raphinha and Bamford on BB this week. Was all set to lose one or two of the Leeds boys but Villa's looking like a decent game. I'll keep Raphinha but would you do any of these moves?

    A Bamford to Watkins
    B Dallas to Regulion
    C both for a hit

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      A for free looks good

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Thanks

      2. Fit_to_drop
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 28 days ago

        A puts you into a striker v defender in the same bench. I wouldnt do that (though I appreciate Dallas can assist and score).

    2. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      No, id roll the dice on them bringing home the bacon. Cash out, Grealish possibly out. Might be a good time to play Villa. And Leeds confidence must be high.

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Its feast or famine with Leeds isn't it! Could be 6 points for the 3 players or 29 like they got on Tuesday

        1. Fit_to_drop
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 28 days ago

          It is but i give them 50-50 in that game against Villa anyway so id stick with them. First goal will be crucial.

    3. The White Pele
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      A is a no brainer for me. C is good if Regulion plays both games.

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Thanks

    4. wulfrunian
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      B for me if you can get Dallas back for gw29.

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Thanks. This is what I'm leaning towards but could backfire! Dallas can't score every week can he!

  20. The White Pele
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    pick one please:

    A) Kane & Sterling
    B) Vardy & Salah -4

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      A

  21. CrouchDown
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Mee to Stones worth a hit?

    1. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      I think so

    2. Dosh
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Which one of the 3 City CBs play both games is really anyone's guess!

    3. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Yes I think over next 3 weeks that'll pay off

  22. George James
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Bamford >> Watkins -4?

    Yay nor nay?

    1. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Not so sure its worth it with Grealish a possible absentee

  23. mrrahrah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    Hi all thoughts on bringing in Digne for a -4 for Coufal on the gamble he gets an extra double in GW28. Alternative is bringing in a villa or fulham defender to help prepare for 29 but that doesn't feel particularly fun

    1. The White Pele
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      i would

  24. CrouchDown
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 28 days ago

    G2G?

    Martinez

    Cancelo Stones Digne

    Salah Bruno Gundo Raphinha

    Kane(TC) DCL Richarlison

    Subs: McCarthy, Dallas Mitchell Soucek

    1. InterUranus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 28 days ago

      Kane TC worries me.

      1. CrouchDown
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Really?

        Do you have a plan to use yours?

        It's always a bit of a lottery

      Richarlison and DCL?

        I own Rich already and I'm going to do Bamford > DCL as I think he is the better option.

    I didn't know that Spurs were playing last night. I presume Son and Kane were benched throughout?

      Bale played 20 mins or so

        Not what you asked.

          Son and Kane didn't feature.

            Excellent. Still contemplating TC on Kane. Thanks.

      None of Son, Kane or Reguilon featured. Bale off the bench for 20 minutes and scored a great goal.

    Anyone feel like Pereira or Alonso instead of Cancelo might be safer? Given the roulette wheel is spinning as we speak.

    1. Fit_to_drop

      Cancelo deffo wont play 60 in both games. He may not start one. But still a good asset to own. I wouldnt sell him because of it.

      I'm looking at it over next 3gws and you'd think Cancelo would play similar amount of matches or even more than Pereira or Alonso. They are all good picks though, very tempted to punt on Alonso for old times sake!

    Morning. My current team for this gameweek below - two players (Dallas and Raphina) without doubles.

    Would you take a -8 hit to get in Kane? To fund this I think i'd lose Sterling (probably to Barnes) and then upgrade Bamford to Kane. I could then take another -4 to do Coufal to Stones which would give me 11 double game week players but at a cost of -12.

    Pope
    Cancelo, Tark, Dallas
    Salah, Bruno, Sterling, Gundogan, Raphina
    Watkins, DCL

    (Forster, Bamford, Coufal, Holding)

  28. highsguy

    Bamford to Kane
    Son to Lookman
    Lowton to Digne
    Worth a -8?

    Areola
    Dias Cancelo Digne
    Bruno Gundo Salah Lookman
    Kane DCL Watkins
    B: Pope Raph Dallas Coufal

      Not sure whats worth -8. I like the moves but they could easily backfire as well. Is Kane that much better option than Son?

      1. highsguy
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Yeah the hit makes it difficult to justify. I can just do Lowton to Digne for free and play Raphinha. Captaincy remains a mystery, however

          Bruno is an obvious captain?

    Best defender for the next 3 weeks £5.2m available. Already have Konsa & Shaw.

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Stones

        6 months, 28 days ago

        That's who I was thinking of Paddy

      I'm assuming you want a player for 29 so Aina would be a good punt. Double in 26 and game in BGW29

      1. THEKID_88
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 28 days ago

        Yeah I have White, Dallas & Cancelo. I was replacing Dallas then possibly get him back for 29. Wondering if it's worth it or save transfer.
