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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner scored a goal and had an assist in Liverpool's 5-4 win against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Milner put in another assured performance, albeit in his unfavored position out wide. With Philippe Coutinho returning soon, his position may be under threat, especially considering how well Emre Can is playing in Milner's preferred central midfield spot.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner took one shot (none on target) while tallying an assist in Wednesday's 3-3 draw with Arsenal.

After sitting out four-straight Premier League matches, Milner returned as a substitute last week against Stoke City in the Capital One Cup and made his return to the starting XI against Arsenal. He pushed the ball to Roberto Firmino for his howitzer of a goal that will surely make the week's highlight reel. He did little after the opening half-hour and was withdrawn after the hour mark in favor of Christian Benteke. He has two goals and four assists in 16 Premier League matches.

Milner (calf) will start training outside Tuesday an could return within a week, manager Jurgen Klopp said Monday.

Milner has already been ruled out for Wednesday's match against Sunderland after missing the last two games, but he's getting closer to fitness, which will create a bit of a lineup headache for Klopp, as Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana, Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho are all fit.

Milner has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Leicester City, with manager Jurgen Klopp adding they will have to wait one-two weeks" before the midfielder returns.

Milner has been a steady force in the Liverpool midfield this season, though the return of Jordan Henderson from injury certainly lessens the blow.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner is set to miss Sunday's match versus Watford because of a calf injury.

The 29-year-old suffered the injury in training this week, and while the damage is not believed to be serious, he is not an option this weekend. Milner is expected to return to training next week, and he could return for the upcoming home match versus Leicester City if everything checks out.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Milner scored the winner off two shots (one on target) in the 1-0 home win over Swansea on Sunday.

This is second straight converted penalty kick this week for him. He's got three goals and three assists for the season across all competitions and could be a very good fantasy choice next week versus a porous Newcastle.

Milner (hamstring) is starting Saturday against Manchester City.

Milner was held out of English duty during the international break, though he returned to training this week and was always expected to feature against the club he left this summer.
