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.

        Not a given. Our CB situation at the moment is a mess.

      Got rid of Cancelo and double city defense on WC and now regretting it.

      Current defense is:

      Dias, Pereira, Shaw, Dallas, Rudiger

      Is it worth getting rid of Dallas or Shaw to Cancelo or Stones for a hit this week? Planning on BB

      Im playing in a h2h league and most of my rivals have 2 city def...

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

        maybe dallas to stones

      2. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Get Ederson ... will play both
        Get Konsa as Villa cover for Martinez clean sheets

        Any thoughts appreciated

        1FT, 1.7 itb + playing BB

        Guiata Mccarthy
        Stones Targett Maguire Mee Dallas
        Foden Gundo Bruno Salah Son
        DCL Watkins Bamford

        A) Dallas > Digne
        B) Mccarthy > Martinez
        C) Mccarthy, Dallas > Keane/Reguilon, Martinez (-4)

        Other suggestions welcome!

      • FDMS All Starz

        Is this worth a -4?

        Adams/Sterling/Mee
        To
        Kane/Doucoure/Cancelo

        (Already have Stones & Gundo)

      • Sabina_S

        3 months, 18 days ago

        Which option please:

        a) Maja - no hit
        b) Barnes -4 (BGW 29) (Salah out)
        c) Lookman -4 (Salah out)

        1. tbos83
            3 months, 18 days ago

            A

          Coufal, Sterling, Ings > Stones, Barnes, Kane (-8)?

          Difficult to get Kane without getting rid of Sterling - want to keep Salah and Bruno.

          Cheers

            yes

          Is 9 DGWERS and Raph & Bamford enough?

          All my other SGWers have a game in GW 29 so I’m reluctant to transfer them out

          1. ResultatFar
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Depends who you got tbh. Most will have 9-10 DGWs I think

          2. Mighty Wings
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            have the same problem and going with 10

          3. FourLokoLeipzig
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            I think (and hope) so. They’re projected by RMT to score more than a couple of my DGWERS this week. Villa have been riding their luck defensively, I expected Leeds to score at least a couple

        4. citizenkane
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Digne or Pereira for the double and beyond?

          1. tbos83
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Digne due to probable double in 28

              1. citizenkane
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 18 days ago

                Do we know how probable though in terms of %? Crellin said it could move to 31 too potentially, am WCing in 31

            • ResultatFar
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              I am currently on Digne, but would love both. Digne higher ceiling, but Pereira higher chance of clean sheets

              1. citizenkane
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 18 days ago

                Agreed. Do we think Pereira starts both games in 26?

          2. Salarrivederci
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Gotta ship out Maddison right? 🙁

            1. NateDogsCats
                3 months, 18 days ago

                Sounds like he'll be out a fair while with Rodgers mentioning a "recovery plan" so yeah. If he somehow isn't as bad as feared I could still only at best see him getting a few mins in the second game this week

              • MattysFantasyFooty
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 18 days ago

                Yeah doesn’t look great had him since gw21 and was doing great

            2. HMC

              • 10 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              I'm after some advice on the following. Understand each to their own but really torn on the hits. I actually did -12 in dgw19 and got instant +30pt return.

              AVL v LEE
              I own Bamford + Raphina and playing both. Would this put you off starting Martinez? SHU away still a good fixtures for returns

              FUL v TOT
              Have Areola as alternative to Martinez. Currently don't own Kane but would you spend -8 to bring him in? A Harry haul would further ruin my rank (30k down to 120k in 3 weeks)

              CITY double
              Would you take a hit to lose Sterling to gain Gundogan - has anything changed post injury / return of Kdb?

              To get Kane, it would be Sterling+Ings to Gund+Kane -8
              This would actually allow for 4m itb
              Could do -12 Rodrigo to DCL (actually prefer Richarlison for the double) and bench Bamford.

              Martinez
              Dias Stones AWB
              Salah Sterling Bruno Barnes Raph
              Bamford Ings
              Areola Mitchell Coufal Rodrigo

                apologies for long post but needed to vent 🙂

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

                how much cash do you have? Dont think those transfers are worth that much. Just Ings to Dom is a straightforward move

                1. HMC
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  right now 1.3m itb
                  no doubt a bit of herd mentality not wanting to be ruined if Kane does score well and I don't own
                  can sterling match gund for points the next 4-5 gw or is the hit justified to finally get gund (who again would hurt rank if he hauls)
                  tough one...

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

                The bigger question I keep asking myself is how many % of the time a -12 actually pays off in the way you described.

                1. HMC
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  not sure i've ever done -12 other than gw19 where Stones Antonio Areola got me a huge gain

                  meanwhile i don't want to wc now, holding it til 31 with no BB/FH left

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

              Play Raphinia or do Mee -> Digne/Reguillon for a -4?

              1. HMC
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                3 months, 18 days ago

                play the form man

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

                Do you think Digne/Reguillon will outscore Raphinha +4?

                1. wonkeydonkey
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  Need to get rid of Mee at some point though, tough fixture run and want to wait till WC in 31, plus play BB in 30.

                  If I did take a hit,
                  A) Digne
                  B) Reguillon

                  1. HMC
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Digne, wouldn't consider Reguillon + Digne may have another double

                    1. wonkeydonkey
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 18 days ago

                      Only concern with Digne is the lack of defensive clean sheets

                      1. NateDogsCats
                          3 months, 18 days ago

                          Allan being back should help with that a lot

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

                RP - Which option would you go for?

                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)
                D. Roll FT

                  B with Konsa Lee/SHU concede most from set pieces , u ll need soucek in gw 27 vs leeds

                3 months, 18 days ago

                Want to use my BB this week. Already transferred in Kane for Antonio. Current bench is Pope, Bamford, Kilman, Coufal.

                Kilman, Coufal -> Luke Thomas, Konsa (-8)?

                1. NateDogsCats
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Wouldn't count on Thomas playing, depends how Rodgers wants to set up in each game but if he opts for Albrighton then Ricardo will be RB and Castagne LB most likely, Thomas played last as Ricardo was playing RM. Might well still happen but he might easily not even get a minute between the 2 games

                    1. aaroncfc
                      • 4 Years
                      3 months, 18 days ago

                      Ah ok, maybe I just gamble on Kilman playing then

                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  Stones or Cancelo on a WC? Dias is nailed in my team

                  1. jimbo90
                    • 5 Years
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    cancelo

                  2. Chris_H
                    • 12 Years
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Probably both equally at risk of rotation so if you can use the 0.9 elsewhere then go Stones? I have Stones in mine

                  3. MattysFantasyFooty
                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 18 days ago

                    Money no issue then definitely Cancelo

                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 18 days ago

                  my gut tells me play bamford but i dont think i can resist that double for watkins.

                    Should I BB this squad

                    Ings to kane transfer done not taking a hit.

                      Nice team mate - bb looks like a good choice! Gundogan is the only one that can really hurt your rank, but apart from that it's looking great

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

                      Yes

                            It was Kane or dcl, Kane was the better shout I thought

                        Martinez Pickford
                        Trent Dias Pereira Shaw Rudiger
                        Bruno Maddison Harrison Gundogan Raphinha
                        Kane DCL Watkins

                        I was planning to just get Barnes in for Harrison but with Maddison's injury news, which option would you go for with a hit?

                        Maddison/Harrison to
                        A) Son + Barnes
                        B) KdB + Pereira
                        C) Salah + Jorginho

                          A quite easily

                        Which 3 city players are you going for? i'm on a wildcard.

                        Stones is a dead cert for me, I think he's nailed to play both games.

                          I have Stones, Gundo (as a 'shield') and KDB on mine

                          same as last few weeks, Dias, Cancelo and Gundogan

                        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

                        Other option would be to use the WC, overhaul the team and then hope for the best for GW29, and use FT's for the rest of the season.

                          Yeah, i think so. Anyone BB'ing with McCarthy isnt giving the BB a fair chance. Its like a 3 person BB.

                          Looks largely good to go

                          Aware there's not much you can do given you have nothing in the bank but was scanning through Brighton twitter yesterday and did notice a couple of people saying Burn should be dropped, perhaps something to keep an eye on, especially if we hear that Webster is approaching a return. Guessing if local media etc started making similar predictions, plus ESR, you may start getting tempted towards TC?

                            Ah, good to know - thanks! I'll keep an eye on it. Thinking ESR is back in the starting XI since they missed him last time out though?

                            Bruno TC is so tempting but just feel like I almost want the BB gone at this stage...

                        Thoughts? Could hold Maddison but feel getting rid for a hit is worth it since he’s a doubt

                        Antonio, Rashford, Maddison to Kane, Barnes, James Rodriguez-8pt hit

                            Seems quite unlikely Maddison will be fit, but Rodgers has a presser after tonight's match so hang on until then just in case

                            Not sure I'd take a hit for Rodriguez tbh.

                          Do I need Barnes(-4) or Kane(-8) or gtg?

                            OK - you dont have Barnes or Kane but its still a decent line up for this week so GTG

                          Used WC already but Got FH chip still, and would like to use BB this gw. Got 1 FT and 0 ITB, what would you do with that bench?

                                Ye ty! Might take a -4 getting Dallas out aswell but dont like it as much.

                                  Don't take a minus 4 to swap Dallas. He's against an out of form Villa and what dgw defender is liley to do better when he's starting with a -4? Also Dallas plays GW29 so you want to keep for that.

                              That's a nice team, shame you don't have BB with that bench.

                            Bench McCarthy, Raphina, Mee, Dallas

                            Total of 10 double gameweekers + Mee on the bench so could have 11 - but I really don't fancy a Burnley clean sheet and think Bamford quite likely to be in the points vs Villa.

                              Yes I think so. I’m in a similar position but leaning towards playing Raph and benching Bam

                              Do you have a bench boost? That's not a bad bench and don't know if there will be a better week.

                            Would you do Maddison to Barnes for a -4 this week. Ings first on the bench if Maddison doesn’t play.
