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.

    The below worth the BB? I'll be using TC or BB this week (saving FH for 29 and WC in 30/31 probably).

    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones AWB
    Gundo Salah Bruno Barnes
    Kane DCL Bamford

    Pope, Raphinha, Dallas, Kilman.

    1. Kilman > Coleman (-4) - BB
    2. Dallas > Reguillon/Pereira (-4) - BB
    3. Save hit and TC

    1. JollyGoodYellows
      • 2 Years

      Got to attack the biggest DGW we've had all season. 2 for me.

    Anyone know the defensive situation at Palace? Was all set to ship out Ward this week but then he played Monday night.
    Can shift him to a Fulham def for a -4 which is likely worth it if he doesn’t play either game but probably not if he plays at least one of them.

  3. Bubbles1985
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Soyuncu and Keane both nailed?

    Best to get Soy if already have Digne right...?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Not for me. Digne, Pereira or else get a cheapie. Aina is great. Game in 29 as well.

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Wats so great about Aina?

        1. Top Mark.S
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I am getting him for gw 29

      2. Bubbles1985
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Cheers.

        FH29 for me.

    2. Indpush
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I believe both are nailed. I'm leaning to Soyuncu but waiting to see if a gwk28 double is released officially before the deadline.

      I don't get Aina. Fixtures kill it for him for me and not interested having him for 29

      1. Bubbles1985
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        I think i will WC28 and fill my bench with fodder again for the run in

    Who to TC this week honestly feels like perhaps the most difficult and important FF decision I've had to make.

    There's a case for at least Son, Bruno, Kane, Gundo, Salah.

    The poll has people strongly in favour of Kane, but Spurs form ain't great and Burnley are a good defensive team, and Fulham are not so bad in general these days. It definitely doesn't feel like Kane is lock for (c).

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Between Kane Bruno and Salah this week - all good options

    2. NateDogsCats
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Definitely a lot of options but that's definitely a good thing! Will be nice to see a decent mix of TC options along with BBC this week, from what most are saying here it seems Kane, DCL and Bruno are the most likely choices for TC but some going for Salah and even KDB too. Will be a wild week that's for sure

      • balint84
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        every year i do the same method, picking Kane TC when they doubles. But now I feel the same as you. and now I have to make a -4 change unfortunatelly

      • GOTHAM City F.C.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        People who do not TC this week have the least chance to succeed with so many good options. Kane will have the biggest vote and if he fails, there are very few winners. Irrespective of the form, betting against the majority is a risky choice.

      • Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Don't forget DCL. Easily the best fixtures of all the options

        1. Says
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I don't own him

      • Jellyfish
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Own all of those players and its between Bruno, DCL and Kane for me. Gundo not nailed for both games and Salah...just isn't Salah!

    3. sp1122
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Thoughts on Ings, Grealish & Bednerak to either
        1. Kane, Lookman & Digne

        Or

        2. DCL, Son & Keane (or another 5.1 Def)

        Both for -4

      • Pépé Pig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Dunk to Pereira worth a hit?

        Yay or Nay

        1. Tonyawesome69 FH36
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Not sure on that one. Pereira could easily get his game time managed.

        2. waltzingmatildas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Nay

      • NateDogsCats
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Pep on Cancelo:

          "He's playing really well. He is a player with huge quality & his physicality is overwhelming - he would be ready to play tomorrow, his two assists were brilliant. He has to have the quality to put that ball & he did it perfectly."

          That's him benched at the weekend then

        • Tonyawesome69 FH36
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          A. Pope and Soucek to Forster and Barnes (-4)
          B. Holding to 5.5def (Targett/Aina/Reguilon)
          C. Soucek to 6.3def (Lookman/B.Traore)

          am i crazy to go without Kane? seems like everyone has him, ive already got Son though

          1. The Units
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            I am going with Son only

          2. Tonyawesome69 FH36
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            I wouldn't say crazy but his EO will be very high for this GW especially with TC

            1. Pat Bonner
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Not sure it will be that high. Bruno will be much higher

              1. Tonyawesome69 FH36
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 9 days ago

                I didn't say he will have the highest EO but you are right Bruno will most likely have the highest EO for this GW.

                1. Pat Bonner
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  Kane's EO in top 10k was only 18% last week. That'll clearly go up but it was a lot lower than I thought it would be, seems like everyone on here owns him when the reality in top10k is very different

              2. tibollom
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 9 days ago

                thanks, ive gone bruno captain, lets hope kane has a quiet one

          3. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            I am thinking about it.

            Proper KANE FEAR though if I go without.

            Spurs are dreadful at the moment, with Burnley and Fulham no pushovers.

            But then, all he needs is a goal and an assist over the two games to make the TC worth it.

            ARGH.

            DECISIONS.

        • balint84
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          A) Kane TC (-4)
          B) Bruno C
          C) Sterling C

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            I would be very tempted to cap Sterling.

            1. Tonyawesome69 FH36
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Even though Sterling was benched early last night but you could say he was benched early due to a poor performance.

            2. GOTHAM City F.C.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Do you see him starting both the games?

        • Bucket Man
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Is there set to be another big DGW where I can use FH or not?

          Have it left at the minute but already have 7 players for BGW so can get by that week.

          1. greggles
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            I’m wondering this. Doubt there will be a double as big as this one though.

            1. Bucket Man
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Got Martinez, Konsa, Dallas, Raph, Kane, Bamford, Watkins at the moment. Can get 1 or 2 more with FT. FH in another DGW or FH in the BGW and take Dallas out this week possibly for Keane.

          2. NateDogsCats
              2 months, 9 days ago

              There's another BGW (33 I think, more options than 29 available but no City or Spurs which will inevitably cause some trouble), but there are only two other games to be rearranged at the minute so nothing else is likely

              1. Bucket Man
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Thanks. Really not sure what to do then. FH chip doesn't seem much use really either way.

                1. NateDogsCats
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    If you think you can set yourself up fine for BGW29 without needing FH and can manage fine in 33 without it either then I'd say give it a go now or just save for a random week. You never know what might happen, might have a player two suspended or a couple of short-term injuries, or might just have a week where you're not too keen on most of your team's fixtures and maybe have a lot of players playing against each other and few like it'll be a bad week

                    1. NateDogsCats
                        2 months, 9 days ago

                        *feel like it'll be a bad week, could be quite useful then

                  • 10 Years
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  I would FH in 33, that way you get to keep your 3x city players and take them out for free that week with nice fixtures elsewhere
                  Villa Leicester Liverpool. No spurs either

                  1. Pompel
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 7 Years
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    I'm still on FH29 , should be no problem to gradually offload a couple City players up to BGW33

                  2. Bucket Man
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    Ok thanks. Will save and BB Areola, Barnes(cheating), Dallas, Konsa

                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  Looks ok. For me, captaincy is between Bruno and Kane

                  1. Rhodes your boat
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    Trying to decide between these aswell 🙁

                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  Very nice. What transfers did you do? I'm trying to decide what to do with the 3 Leeds currently on my BB. I'm going to captain Kane

                  1. Rhodes your boat
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    I got rid of Dallas and raph for holgate and Barnes for -4 after WC last week, didn’t want to take a bit but thought it was worth it to have Dallas last gw and luckily it paid off

                    1. Pat Bonner
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 9 Years
                      2 months, 9 days ago

                      Nice moves.

                      I need to decide whether to do Bamford to Watkins, Dallas to Regulion or both! Keeping Raphinha but I got Barnes in on WC but benched him last week!!

                      1. Rhodes your boat
                        • 4 Years
                        2 months, 9 days ago

                        Ouch! Tough to drop raphinha but wanted Barnes and didn’t want to lose any of my other mids. I would be tempted to do both, Watkins and reguilon have good fixtures and an extra game so increases the chances of it paying off!

                        1. Pat Bonner
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          • 9 Years
                          2 months, 9 days ago

                          I knew there was a risk with benching Barnes and having strong front 8 but wanted him in place for double and next few fixtures are decent as well. Might go for both of the transfers but also know Leeds could do to Villa what they did to Southampton on Tuesday

                      2. Jellyfish
                        • 9 Years
                        2 months, 9 days ago

                        I'd just do Dallas to Regullion if it were me. Bamford scored a hatrick against Villa earlier in the season and without Cash and Grealish Villa are there for the taking (tough words from a Villa fan too lol).

                        1. Pat Bonner
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          2 months, 9 days ago

                          Thanks, I'm leaning that way at the minute. Villa may struggle without Grealish as well

                3. Fit_to_drop
                  • 1 Year

                  11 of the same players as me but I own Cresswell and Mitchell so cant do the BB.

                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 needed.
                B. Grealish to Barnes/Traore (-4)
                C. Lowton to defender (up to 5.4) (-4)

                  TC Kane or Bruno?
                  I'm chasing my mini league.

                    Chelsea are going to be a stubborn opponent for Utd. And Palace did a number on Utd earlier in the season. OF the candidates out there, I wouldnt be putting it on Bruno. Despite his good form.

                    Kane fix, Bruno form. TC is always a gamble

                      I'm going to go with my gut feeling then.
                      Kane, it is.

                    Grealish to barnes, can be a long term hold with great fixtures afterwards as well.

                        I would say yes apart from the keeper. If it was Areola or even Sanchez, id say yes.

                          Would be a hit to get rid though which I don’t think is worth it

                        I BB with Leeds SGW in 19 and it didn't work out well but happy to have used it to get it out the way.

                          It’s just a gimmick I want to get out the way so I can start to move value back from my bench to the starting 11

                        Barnes or Gundo? I've been burned by not owning Gundo, but could Barnes be a safer bet with minimal chance of rotation?

                        Would leave me with Dias & Cancelo for City.

                          Gundogan is the best player in the game after Bruno.

                        Ogbonna->Reguilon/ Pereira.

                          Not sure on that move for a hit. Reguilon/ Pereira game time could get managed as they are just back from an injury.

                          1. wulfrunian

                            Reguilon rested yesterday.Sure starter in both games.

                            1. wulfrunian

                              *Also Pereira has started in the last 4 games.No reason to stay on the bench.

                              1. Tonyawesome69 FH36

                                For Pereira, he has had his rest in the cup games in between the league games. The double in 26 has a 3 day turn around. There is a risk there imo

                            Going big on Villa! Not sure that's worth a -8 but if they get a double in 28 and you need them for 29 then I can see the appeal

                            Surely downgrade Johnstone to 3.9 GK if you are already going down the route to have bench fodder for the other positions

                          Please excuse the slightly long-winded nature of this post, but I could do with some clear-eyed advice as I am losing my mind.

                          I am locked in a dead heat battle for my minileague (there's about 20 pts in it - I'm ahead). I haven't won it since 2017, so this is my main goal at this point. Rising through the ranks will be a bonus (I'm about 350k OR at present).

                          My rival has used his wildcard and free hit already. I have all my chips intact - current plan is to WC30/31 to set up for the rest of the season, and FH in 33 (or a double as yet unscheduled).

                          Rival has a good team, with 2 FTs and 4.0 ITB with which I expect he will purchase Kane, and one other doubler, probably in defence. He doesn't have enough cash to go directly from Antonio > Kane, so it will be a downgrade elsewhere (or, I suppose, he could go for Vardy). I expect he will use either TC or BB (most likely TC). This is his team:

                          Martinez / Johnstone
                          Cancelo / Mee / Digne
                          Sterling / Gundogan / Bruno / Neto
                          DCL / Bamford / Kane* (I assume)

                          Subs: Johnstone, Dallas, Saka, Coufal

                          This is my team. I have been priced out of the -8 I had intended, so the -4 option I had on the backburner seems best. But do I TC or BB with this team (assuming I go ahead with the transfers as planned - Antonio > Kane and Bednarek > Targett)?

                          Martinez
                          Cancelo / Stones / Shaw / Targett
                          Salah / Gundogan / Bruno / Raphinha
                          DCL / Kane

                          Subs: Pope / Bamford / Dallas / Saka

                          Having Pope, Bamford and Dallas benched seems like an awful waste, and I could TC a City player in their next double.

                            Only advice I would give you is don't even look at rivals team, just play your own game and try and maximise points you get and the rest will take care of itself! For your own team, I like the moves and I think I would BB as well. I might even be tempted to do Saka to Lookman for an additional hit

                              Thank you. That is much appreciated. I fear not having Digne! I have been tempted by Saka > Lookman, so good to have a bit of reinforcement for that one.

                                Digne is a good option but Everton are also very inconsistent so don't think there's any guarantees that he scores big this week....it obviously could happen but your defence is very strong so will score well.

                                  Thank you. I think you have made up my mind for me... Bednarek > Targett, Saka > Lookman, Antonio > Kane (-8) and BB! Should be fun. Now just to decide who to captain...

                          Current team (playing BB):

                          Martinez/McCarthy
                          Dias/Cancelo/Shaw/Rudiger/Dallas
                          Salah/Bruno/Gundo/Barnes/Raphinha
                          Kane/DCL/Bamford

                          Any obvious moves? I’m considering another keeper, Digne & Watkins. I’m not too fussed about hits as it’s a DGW.

                          Villa are up against Leeds and Sheffield United(they have both conceded the most goals from set-pieces, 11 each)

                          Screams a Mings/Konsa goal in the DGW to me...

                          McCarthy > Areola worth a -4 on BB?
