Fonte (hamstring) is starting Saturday against Sunderland.

Fonte was taken off at halftime of last weekend's match against Bournemouth due to the ailment, but he trained enough this week to maintain his starting spot alongside Virgil van Dijk, though Maya Yoshida will also be back there Saturday as part of a three-man back line

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte was taken off at halftime of Saturday's match against Bournemouth because of hamstring tightness, manager Ronald Koeman said.

Fonte has been a very important piece of the Saints' defense, so any absence would surely be felt. Maya Yoshida came on to replace him Sunday and could take his starting spot if any additional time is required for recovery.

Fonte opened the scoring in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Leicester City.

Fonte headed the ball home in 21st minute following a cross from Dusan Tadic. The captain has played every minute in the Premier League this season as part of a team that has been far less solid defensively compared to last term.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte played the full 90 minutes and recorded a clean sheet in Sunday's scoreless draw to Watford.

The 31-year-old center back doesn't score much, but is as reliable as it gets, wearing the captain's armband and providing a steady hand to the Southampton back-three. He's played the full 90 minutes in all six competitive games this season and will continue to do so barring injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte captained Southampton to another clean sheet victory on Saturday as they topped Hull City by a 2-0 scoreline.

Fonte has been a great leader for the Saints this season, but leadership doesn't count for much in the fantasy world, limiting Fonte's appeal to clean sheet potential due to his ineptitude at the offensive end. Southampton do face an offensively challenged Stoke side next weekend, however, so Fonte could be worth a look as a lower-tier option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte picked up a clean sheet and added one shot on goal in the 2-0 victory over Burnley on Saturday.

The Portuguese defender continues his steady leadership of Southampton's formidable back line and has performed consistently at the defensive end all season, although he rarely contributes much in the way of offensive stats. Southampton's next match will come April 4 versus Everton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte captained Southampton to a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Tuesday at St. Mary's.

The Portuguese defender is better in real life than he is for fantasy purposes, as he is relatively ineffective going forward. He will lead the Saints into Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea next week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte is ineligible for Friday's match against Crystal Palace due to yellow-card accumulation, but he will be eligible to return Sunday against Chelsea.

Maya Yoshida could get the start in place of Fonte, who has been a rock in the middle of the defense for the Saints this season.
