Fantasy Premier League: Saturday Cheat Sheet

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has some of the best odds to score a goal this weekend, as he'll face off against a Burnley side that have allowed the second-most shots and shots on target this season.

James Milner: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

October 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner (head) has been deemed fit for Saturday's match versus West Brom after recovering from a head injury, Football Talk reports.

Milner exited Monday's match versus Manchester United after receiving a couple of painful blows, including one to the head. He passed all of the tests that the medical staff put him through, however, and he should return to the fullback position that he has made his own with several impressive performances.

October 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner left Monday's goalless draw with Manchester United in the 85th minute.

Milner stood out as one of the Reds' best players, but he was forced off the pitch after going down after picking up a knock on two separate occasions. The ailments are not believed to be serious at first glance, but further testing will likely occur. If he is unable to play Saturday versus West Brom, Alberto Moreno could return after being relegated to the bench.

October 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner took one shot, completed two dribbles, won two aerial duels, made three tackles, took three corners, and scored a penalty kick in Saturday's 2-1 win over Swansea City.

Milner has cemented his spot as Liverpool's preferred left-back this season. The liable Alberto Moreno has been moved to the bench with Milner now filling his role. He could offer good value as he takes the majority of Liverpool's corner kicks and all of their penalty kicks. Milner now has four goals and one assist in six Premier League matches.

September 24, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner scored twice from the spot, his only two shot attempts, in Saturday's 5-1 win over Hull City.

A torrid Liverpool attack had the Hull defense completely overwhelmed for much of the game, and Milner was the beneficiary of a pair of penalties drawn. He now has three goals this year, all coming from the spot. He's not a big scorer otherwise, and likely cannot sustain high fantasy production.

September 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner tallied an assist in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Leicester City.

The remarkably out-of-place Milner, pressed into duty at left back thanks to the ineffectiveness of Alberto Moreno, can still be a force in the attack, picking out Roberto Firmino in the 13th minute to give the Reds the early advantage. While he was a little more stout defensively on Saturday against the talented duo of Shinji Okazaki and Riyad Mahrez, the 30-year-old is not the long-term answer for Liverpool at left back.

August 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner converted a penalty kick in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

Milner's not a big goal scorer, having scored just 42 Premier League goals in his 419 match career in the English top flight. However, from the spot, the 30-year-old was as confident as any, calmly slotting the ball into the bottom corner of the goal. Playing in a somewhat unfamiliar left back role ahead of the oft-maligned Alberto Moreno, Milner will need to balance his new-found defensive responsibilities with his role in the Reds attack.

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner (heel) is starting on Saturday against Burnley.

Milner was held out of Liverpool's league opener last weekend against Arsenal, and while he'll get back in the first XI, he'll do so at leftback in place of Alberto Moreno, who struggled in their first match.
