Milner was named in England final 23-man squad for Euro 2016.

Milner has resurrected his career since his arrival at Anfield checking in very solid offensive numbers with the Reds. The midfielder started in England's dress rehearsal against Portugal on Thursday, he's one of only three players at age 30 or older for the Three Lions and his experience and reliability may increase his fantasy upside during the Euro games. Milner finished his season with Liverpool with five goals, 11 assists and nine yellow cards in 28 Premier League starts for a total of seven goals and 14 assists in 42 appearances across all competitions.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner made a pair of assists on eight key passes and 14 crosses but also received a yellow card in Wednesday's 4-0 romp over Everton.

Milner from the right, Milner from the left. Milner simply everywhere. The midfielder continues his romp of late with another stellar performance and another game (third consecutive) with a pair of assists for a total of seven assists in his last four games across all comps. Liverpool are hosting one of the worst defenses in the league on Saturday but he may be rested with the upcoming crucial Europa League semifinals next week.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner tallied two assists in Sunday's 4-1 victory over Stoke City.

The always-creative Milner struck twice on Sunday, first picking out Alberto Moreno in the eighth minute, who had an acre of space and even more time to calmly finish and then followed up with a cross to the head of Divock Origi to double the Reds' advantage. Milner's now up to nine assists on the season, putting him in the top-five with Dele Alli and Kevin De Bruyne—strong company to keep.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner was sent off after picking up two yellow cards in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

Milner first went into the book just before the halftime whistle on a reckless challenge of Yohan Cabaye and then followed that up with another daft challenge on Wilfried Zaha that sent him to the dressing room in the 62nd minute. With a pair of Europa League fixtures upcoming, Milner won't have to serve his suspension until March 20 against Southampton, before being eligible to return April 2 against Spurs.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner put in three crosses, provided an assist off of two key passes and scored a goal on four shots in Wednesday's win over Manchester City.

Just days after dropping the League Cup final to his former club, Milner was the catalyst in what was an impressive win. The 30-year-old has been steadily productive over the last five league matches, with three goals and three assists, and he will look to keep it up versus Crystal Palace on Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Liverpool advanced in the Europa League against Augsburg after Milner scored from the penalty spot early in Thursday's match.

Milner's goal put the squad into the final 16 of the tournament, and came in just the fifth minute of the match. Though the score was not high and chances were missed, advancing is important and the team avoided picking up new injuries.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner put in five crosses and scored on his only shot in Sunday's win over Aston Villa.

The 30-year-old started once again and made an impact on the wing for Liverpool while factoring into his fifth goal in six league matches. The Reds' attack finally had all of its components available Sunday and they put together a dynamic performance. As long as Milner continues to start and provide service for the likes of the now-healthy Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho, he could see an uptick in fantasy production. Liverpool will resume league play versus Manchester City on Feb. 28.

February 7, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner had no shots but curled in 11 crosses and added two key passes in the 2-2 draw at home with Sunderland on Saturday.

Milner stamped his trademark with a top class cross that helped Firmino break the deadlock and finally snatch the lead for the Reds in a crucial moment of the game. The winger has been used, this season, primarily from further back but whenever he gets deployed in a more attacking role he can be a fantasy weapon. Milner is now on three goals and six assists on the season.
