The most recent fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
By National Team:
Fantasy AnalysisRodriguez has found regular playing time hard to come by this season, as Graziano Pelle has a firm hold on the starting striker job. Unfortunately for Rodriguez, Pelle is suspended for this weekend's match against Manchester City, so he may have even gotten a fill-in start. Instead, the Saints will go with Shane Long until Pelle returns.
Fantasy AnalysisManager Quique Sanchez Flores said Behrami's return was unlikely, as he needs another four to six days to recover, but if he's able to train well Thursday and Friday, he could be available. Given Flores' pessimism, Behrami seems like a long shot to start even if he does pass fit.
Fantasy AnalysisProdl suffered the injury over the international break and his return date has already been pushed back. Miguel Britos and Craig Cathcart are expected to start in the center of the defense while Prodl is out.
Fantasy AnalysisBorini aggravated the injury recently but wasn't expected to miss considerable time, though he was left out last weekend because of a lack of match fitness. Jermain Defoe suffered an ankle injury last weekend, though he is also likely to be available Sunday, which may cap Borini's playing time.
