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.

Fantasy Premier League: Sunday-Monday EPL Cheat Sheet

After a fairly muted opening day to the Premier League, a few of the heavy hitters will kick off their campaigns on Sunday and Monday.

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

August 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner could return from his heel injury to start at left back on Saturday against Burnley, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Alberto Moreno struggled mightily in Liverpool's opener against Arsenal on Sunday, including committing a foul in the box. Milner missed the match due to his injury, but his versatility will certainly come in handy for a Liverpool side that's rather light in defensive reinforcements.

August 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner (heel) is not in the 18-man squad to face Arsenal on Sunday.

Milner was unable to train this week due to the injury, and he unsurprisingly fails to make the game-day squad. Adam Lallana will start alongside Jordan Henderson, with Georginio Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane on the attacking wings against the Gunners.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner (heel) has not trained this week and appears unlikely to play on Sunday against Arsenal, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Milner has been dealing with the heel issue for a few weeks, and given the layoff in training, it seems like a long shot that he'll be fit enough to face the Gunners. His absence opens up a big spot in the Reds' midfield, with Jordan Henderson likely to slot in.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner suffered a heel injury during Saturday's friendly against Barcelona, with manager Jurgen Klopp saying "it doesn't look too good."

Milner will undergo a scan to help determine the severity of the injury, but with the issue propping up soon before the Premier League opener, it wouldn't be surprising to see his season debut delayed.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
