Fonte finished the Premier League season with three goals and 15 clean sheets in 36 appearances for Southampton.

Fonte anchored an impressive Southampton defensive unit, picking up clean sheet points in just under half of his appearances for the Saints. He also chipped in offensively, as his three goals surprisingly made him the club's fourth-leading scorer. Overall, Fonte ended the season ranked as a Top-10 defender in the majority of fantasy leagues, which should inflate his price value at the beginning of next season.
