The most recent fantasy soccer news from RotoWire.
By National Team:
Fantasy AnalysisShaw is nearing a return to full training, and may be available for selection next week if the next few days of training continue to show solid progress for the defender.
Fantasy AnalysisRodriguez has been out of action for more than eight month after rupturing a cruciate ligament in April. Southampton was originally hoping the striker would return by the end of the year, but is likely to be out of action until February.
Fantasy AnalysisMorrison returned to West Ham from Cardiff before the loan agreement was complete, and the West Ham manager does not see a spot for Morrison in the current squad.
Fantasy AnalysisOviedo (leg) had a procedure to remove a screw from his surgically-repaired leg back in October and has been sidelined ever since. With his appearance against FK Krasnodar, the 24-year-old should be available moving forward.
Fantasy AnalysisThe defender has been sidelined with a shoulder injury since Nov. 1. Alcaraz also returned to the starting XI against FK Krasnodar, so the 32-year-old seems to be in full health moving forward.
Fantasy AnalysisOxlade-Chamberlain had an injection in his groin earlier this week in order to aid in his recovery. If he's cleared to play, he could be inserted into the starting XI, as the Gunners are missing a number of attacking midfield options.
Fantasy AnalysisBalotelli is currently recovering from a groin injury and had a chance to return this weekend, but with Liverpool unlikely to appeal the charge, he will sit out and try to be available to face Burnley on Boxing Day.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 18-year-old midfielder was injured on debut in Saints' 1-0 loss to Burnley last weekend. With Southampton's squad decimated by injuries and suspensions, Hesketh could have been set to pick up more Premier League minutes had he not also suffered an injury.
Fantasy AnalysisWanyama was booked against Sheffield United on Tuesday evening. The Kenyan midfielder will be sorely missed in the Saints' midfield, especially as many others are missing through injury. He has scored three Premier League goals this season and is key to preventing other teams from playing.
Fantasy AnalysisTadic has featured in every Premier League game this season for the Saints and will be a big miss. The Serbian midfielder has contributed eight assists but has looked jaded recently and fatigue has clearly caught up with him.
