Three Sky Sports Fantasy Football players to consider for the season run-in

Billy Lumsden picks out another trio of Sky Fantasy assets with decent form and fixtures.


Caglar Soyuncu – £8.3m

The Turkish international seems to be hitting the heights of 2019/20 after an injury-hit campaign.

Soyuncu has 35 points from his last five matches, including two clean sheets and tier two passing bonus points (70+ passes) in each of those games. He provides an alternative or additional option to Kelechi Iheanacho (£8.4m) or Jamie Vardy (£10.8m) at the heart of the Leicester defence.

The Foxes have two Friday night fixtures against Southampton and Newcastle coming up, again providing a great captaincy option on an individual gameday. Clean sheets, passes and even a goal could be in the offing for the man who is owned by 28.5% of the top 1,000 Fantasy Football teams.

Jarrod Bowen – £7.9m

Jarrod Bowen has racked up 40 points from his last five matches and has found himself playing in the striker’s role for his last three. During this period, the former Hull City man has notched three goals and registered two assists, proving a potential captaincy and differential option in the weeks to come.

A mere 2.5% of the top 1,000 Fantasy Football managers have currently recruited the services of Bowen, which could be expected to increase given West Ham’s favourable run-in. David Moyes’ side have clashes with Burnley (on a potential captaincy day), Everton, Brighton, West Brom and Southampton to come, so further points could well be on offer.

Illan Meslier – £6.1m

Wolves restrict heavily-backed Bamford as Meslier suffers freak own goal

Illan Meslier is the youngest ever goalkeeper to keep 10 clean sheets in a Premier League campaign, and he has been a steal in Sky Sports Fantasy Football all season. The Frenchman has made 131 saves, tallying tier one bonus points (three saves) 13 times and tier two (five or more saves) on 12 occasions.

The 21-year-old is third in the Sky Sports Fantasy Football goalkeeping charts, with his tally only bettered by Emiliano Martinez and Ederson – not bad for a player at just £6.1m, who is bringing in 28.69 points per million.

Following his 11-point haul against rivals Manchester United, Meslier travels to Brighton on Saturday and subsequently faces Spurs, Burnley, Southampton and West Brom. Clean sheets could therefore certainly be plentiful for Meslier, who is only owned by 0.2% of the top 1,000.

    Rolling FT. All the best guys. This is how I am going.

    Martinez
    Rudiger Castagne Shaw
    Bruno Lingard Salah Son
    Watkins Nacho Kane(C)

    Sanchez Jota Coady Mitchell

    1. DycheDycheBaby
      • 6 Years

      Looks good man

    2. TVPlugSockets
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Yeah I’m going to roll the FT too. I think it will be needed for the next two GWs for sure.

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Oh yes

  2. estheblessed
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Who are people targetting for the double GW ?

    1. Dragon1983
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Hi Guys - please can someone share the link for the "expected" double GW \ blank GW fixtures ? I can't seem to find it

      1. estheblessed
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Im also wondering this ^

        1. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 21 days ago

          The only thing we know for sure is that Everton, Villa, Southampton and Palace will have a DGW at some point this season. Ben Crellin who most on here seems to follow for DGW predictions reckons there is a 70% chance it will be in GW35, as well as doubles for Leicester, Chelsea, Man Utd and Arsenal.

          Other possible schedules are

          Every team apart from AVL, EVE, CRY, SOU, MUN, LEI, CHE, ARS Blanks in GW36 and every team apart from MUN, LEI, CHE, ARS Doubles in GW37

          AVL, EVE, CRY, SOU Double in GW36 and no Blank GWs

          AVL, EVE, CRY, SOU Double in GW37 and no Blank GWs

          Another option would be everybody doubling in GW38 if the GW deadlines remain as they are, and fixtures are moved forward a week.

          Basically, it's a big unknown. The chance of a big DGW35 are less than 50/50 IMO.

          1. Dragon1983
            4 months, 21 days ago

            Thank you - much appreciated

    2. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Honestly no clue atm, I might take a punt on Palace (Benteke / Guaita), but still very unknown at the moment

    3. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Depends how many teams get a DGW and what GW week it/they are.

    4. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Which teams have a confirmed double?

  3. MMN
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Do we expect Gundo to start the last 3 vs new, bri, EVE once the champions league is out of the way?

    1. estheblessed
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Who knows? I got rid of all City except Dias. To be honest if they have the league wrapped up even more rotation.

    2. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Probably not. This is the best season he's had in terms of injury and form since he was at Dortmund and with the Euros to come Pep will not want to overplay him regardless of when the season "ends".

  4. CrouchDown
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Bench order correct here guys? Should I play BB?

    Martinez

    TAA Holding Rudiger

    Salah Bruno Jota Greenwood Lingard

    Kane Nacho

    Subs: Forster, Watkins Dawson Alioski

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      1. Yes.
      2. Depends on what you have planned for the possible dgw.

    2. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Hmm I would save your BB for DGW. you have 4 attacking players in the Manu Liv game. If that ends 0-0 it's going to be a shame as compared to potentially maximising DGW

      1. CrouchDown
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Cheers mate.

        I guess since those players are starting anyway then it wouldn't affect BB, but I understand your point.

        Is Forster likely to start tonight do you think?

        1. HammersXI
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 21 days ago

          No one knows what the Southampton boss thinks anymore. I highly doubt he would

  5. DycheDycheBaby
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Play one:
    a) Targett
    b) Digne
    c) Dunk

    1. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Digne

    2. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      b

  6. artvandelay316
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Should I put Coady or Gundo as first bench?

    Current squad setup is:
    Def: Dallas, TAA, Rudiger
    Mid: Salah, Bruno, Lingard, Mount

    Cheers!

  7. matiakez
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Jota to Bale or Greenwood to Son?

    Or neither?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Or botb?

      Greenwood likely to play against Liverpool tho.

      All will be rested up to the final though.

      1. matiakez
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Greenwood I feel more inclined to keep what with the double, although Jota is easier to bench this week.

  8. SomeoneKnows
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Martinez (Forster)
    TAA, Rudiger, Fofana (Coady, Coufal)
    Salah, Bruno, Son, Lingard (Jota)
    Kane, Iheanacho, Wood

    With 2FT should I...

    A) Do nothing - G2G
    B) Coady > Coleman
    C) Other ideas

    1. TVPlugSockets
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Very good team. I’d do nothing, although seems a waste of a FT I guess. Perhaps get someone in you want for the DGW?

    2. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Get rid of Forster

    3. Jimbo-Jones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Definitely wouldn't burn the transfer - might as well build towards DGW35.

      If you're not playing Coady, might as well get in someone who doubles next week.
      Otherwise agree switch Forster to 3.9 and build cash.

      1. SomeoneKnows
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        That's my dilemma, if I should play Coady or build towards the pressumed DGW35 by bringing in Coleman?

  9. HammersXI
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Reposted from previous thread:

    Would like to know thoughts on these 2 moves:

    Jota -> Perreira (Switch to Raphinha in 2 weeks)
    Coady -> Dallas (till end of the season)

    Both FTs, can't do Coady to Dallas without having to downgrade someone

    1. Boss Hogg
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Looks like a good move to me.
      Or maybe just Coady to Lloriente?

      1. HammersXI
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        I'm a leeds fan but am not convinced by Llorente assist / goal involvement. Ayling and Dallas are much more attacking. But yes that's food for thought. I don't see Jota doing much and I'm currently playing him, hence was thinking of Periera

        1. Boss Hogg
          • 11 Years
          4 months, 21 days ago

          Ayling or Alioski also decent options.

          1. HammersXI
            • 8 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            I'm steering clear of Alioski, just waiting for that red card to happen this season.

            Ayling vs Dallas is going to continue being an interesting comparison. He has been really unlucky to not get on the scoresheet / assist but with Raphinha out, his attacking potential decreases

            1. Boss Hogg
              • 11 Years
              4 months, 21 days ago

              Loved Ayling's "goal" a few weeks ago. Great finish to a quality move, but denied due to ****ing VAR.
              He even let his hair down and pulled out the air guitar celebration too!

              1. HammersXI
                • 8 Years
                4 months, 21 days ago

                Yeah it was a shame. I was happy for him to just get that moment ruined by VAR. Though I had Dallas that week and my brother had Ayling, so it all worked out.

                I do hope he does get a goal this season, he deserves it

  10. Boss Hogg
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    2 free transfers to upgrade this defence.
    1.3m in the bank, and planning on using a FH next week if we get the expected doubles.

    Coady, TAA, Rudiger, Holding, Reguilon

    Coady and/or Holding are the ones I might shift on. But for who?

    Castagne? Dallas? Digne? Cheaper Everton? Coufal? Anyone else?

  11. Bobby_Baggio
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Morning all. Where to use 1FT or shall I save? Bench order correct?

    Martinez
    Dunk - Diaz - Azpi
    Lingard - Bruno - Salah - Jota - Siggy
    Kane - Ihenacho

    (McCarthy) - Bam - Coufal - Alioski

    1. OneDennisBergkamp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      i am playing Bam over Jota

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Cheers - tough call i can brighton stumping leeds

  12. Evasivo
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Right bench order here, and good to save FT?

    Martinez
    TAA Coufal Dunk
    Lingard Salah(vc) Bruno Gundo
    Maupay Bamford Kane(C)

    Patricio Dias Dallas Soucek

    £0.0ITB & 1FT

    1. Bobby_Baggio
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      I would start Dias and bench Coufal but otherwise G2G

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        i would play Dias over Dunk

    2. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Why bench Dallas?

    3. Evasivo
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      So Dias Dallas TAA preferred back line?

      Had only benched the others as felt Coufal/Dunk had better chance of points

      1. Evasivo
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        TBF Dias over Coufal a decent shout, but i'm still thinking Dunk(H) is better than Dallas(Away)?

        1. Bobby_Baggio
          • 10 Years
          4 months, 21 days ago

          i think Dunk is better shout then dallas. Can see why people would say dallas due to attacking threat but brighton home are pretty solid. Can see 1-0 brighton

          1. Evasivo
            • 11 Years
            4 months, 21 days ago

            Agreed, thanks

  13. robert1116336
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Who to start
    1) Jota
    2) Phillips
    3) Vydra
    4) Holding

    1. Mr. Funny Name
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Jota

  14. Sid07
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    start
    1) Jota
    2) vydra
    3) holding

  15. Mr. Funny Name
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Cavani surely starts at the weekend vs Liverpool with the job *hopefully* done vs Roma right? Or do I sell for Wood/DCL for free??

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Will be weird and dumb imo, for OGS not to start Cavani. MU look soooooo much better with, Pogba, Cavani and Bruno in attack.

    2. Jimbo-Jones
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Wouldn't buy, wouldn't sell. Start him.

  16. Bobby_Baggio
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Those with WC and BB left are we hoping for a GW37 double or just going on the Villa, Eve, Sout & Palace double?

    1. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      I've got FH and BB, and am hoping for GW37 to be a DGW and GW36 a big blank. It's probably the best option for you as well. I'd edge my bets by saving FT, or using one FT on a Villa, Eve, Sout & Palace player this GW if you've got one to burn in your situation (assuming no DGW announcement is made before deadline).

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        cool cheers i'm saving this week so will have 2 FT next week

  17. Jimbo-Jones
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Already the classic benching headache for the Utd-Liv game, but also 2FT.

    Thinking of doing either Coady/Sanchez to fodder, leaving c.1.5m itb and 2ft for the double.

    Anything else you think i should prioritise?

    Ederson
    TAA Rudiger Castagne
    Salah Jota Bruno Gundo Lingard
    Kane Iheanacho

    Sanchez Shaw Coady Vydra

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Yeah downgrade Sanches now and wait and see if Everton or Villa get DGW, bring a defender from one of them for that GW.

  18. FCSB
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Mendy
    TAA Shaw Rudiger
    Salah Son Fernandes Lingard Greenwood
    Kane(c) Iheanacho(vc)

    Forster Vydra Holding Kilman

    1FT, 0.0itb

    Is this good to go??

    Thanks

  19. Dragon1983
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Hi All

    Any help much appreciated - no FT.

    Mendy
    Shaw, Rudiger, Dallas, Digne

    Nacho, DCL, Bamford

    Martinez, Mount, Jota, Phillips

    A) G2G

    C) Mount > Son and Jota > Pereira \ Soucek (-8)

    Thanks

  20. Bobby_Baggio

    Start one?

    A) Jota

  21. J ⚒ Gimme ur Mané
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Is bale the best differential captain?

    1. Mr. Funny Name
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      If I had him I would

    2. JBG
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Son and/or Nacho will probably have low Captaincy % as well.

    3. Aster
      4 months, 21 days ago

      No

  22. MartialMatas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Cavani Raphinha to Kane and 5.1m mid for - 4?

    Martinez
    TAA Azpi Rudiger
    Salah Son Jota Lingard
    Vardy Iheanacho Cavani

    Forster Holding Raphinha Struijk

    1ft £3.7m itb

    1. Sulley
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Good move if will be captaining Kane I think.

  23. Daghe Munegu
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Really don't know if I need Kane ? It would be for a hit. 1ft 0.2 itb

    Mendy
    TAA Shaw Rudiger
    Salah Son Bruno Greenwood
    Vardy Nacho Vydra

    Button Fofana Jota Holding

  24. Louis Van Gaalstones
    • 6 Years

    They're going to announce the fixture changes 5 minutes after the deadline aren't they?

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Nah, 1 minute 😉

    2. Pompel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      Talks about some sort of social media ban, so wouldn't make sense to announce it then

      1. Louis Van Gaalstones
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 21 days ago

        Oh yeah good point, so it'll either be before 3pm today or on Tuesday

    3. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 21 days ago

      On the deadline like they did earlier this season.

  25. Tomerick
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    How am I doing?

    Sanchez
    TAA, Shaw, Dallas
    Salah, Bruno, Jota, Mount, Pereira
    Kane, Nacho

    Pope, Coufal, Maja, White

    Any transfer suggestions?

  26. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    A) kane x2 (-4)

    B) Son and Salah

    Who scores more this week? YOU DECIDE!

  27. Sulley
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 21 days ago

    Morning all, another Gameweek!

    Any advice here would be greatly appreciated. For first time this season I am stumped with how to use FT.

    2 FT 2.5M ITB

    Mendy
    Rudiger TAA Castagne
    Salah Lingard Maddison Son
    Ineanacho Kane Wood

    Forster Shaw Jota Holding

    Really don't want to burn an FT but struggling to see a move. Ideally want to hold 2.1 M ITB to maybe do Son > Bruno next week so effectively have 0.4 to play with.

    Any thoughts? My only thought is Jota > Siggy or Holding > Alioski / Llorente

  28. C_G
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 21 days ago

    am i gtg? 0 ITB, 1 FT!

    Martinez

      Ryan(4.1) might start for Arsenal. But other than that, highly doubt it.

    Nacho(C) even if I have Kane as I'm chasing 50 point deficit. Is it stupid to roll the dice?

      Not really stupid. If not now, when?

      Though I do think chance of kane haul is more than Iheanacho's
