Fantasy5 Picks GW25: Daniel James to build on midweek brace

Who are the best FPL Fantasy5 picks ahead of the next round? We go through our picks for the week.

Here at Fantasy Football Community, we really enjoy the Fantasy5 game. It’s a free-to-play challenge, where each week you select a player from five matches who you back to beat their designated ‘points target’. It follows the exact same scoring system as FPL, just without bonus points.

Get all five correct and you get a split of the £10,000 jackpot prize. Full terms and conditions are here.

For each round, we will have our own attempt at five successful picks.

GAMEWEEK 25 Fantasy5 picks

  • Everton v Leeds
  • Burnley v Liverpool
  • Newcastle v Aston Villa
  • Tottenham v Wolves
  • Leicester v West Ham

None of the Gameweek 24 Fantasy5 picks succeeded – Odsonne Edouard and Bryan Mbeumo only made substitute appearances! Michail Antonio continued his form of not scoring goals, in a round where all failed except Southampton pair James Ward-Prowse and Mohamed Elyounoussi.

Listed as a midfielder but playing up front in the long absence of Patrick Bamford, Daniel James (7.5) netted twice on Wednesday night and also hit the crossbar. He probably couldn’t pick a better opponent to follow that up with than Everton, who are hurtling towards a relegation battle. Jay Rodriguez scored his first goal of the season in Gameweek 24 and – assuming this keeps him in Burnley’s starting XI – he has been generously given a 5.5 points target when almost all strikers receive 6.5, whereby one goal isn’t enough.

Two attacking left-backs have been selected this time – Lucas Digne (6.5) for his trip to Newcastle and Sergio Reguilon (6.5) at home to low-scoring Wolves. The final pick goes to Leicester’s Harvey Barnes. Although his minutes have been inconsistent in a disappointing season, he still passes the eye test when playing. He can beat his 7.5 target against West Ham.
