Baines won four tackles and provided a single cross during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Spurs.

Baines was uncharacteristically unable to get forward Saturday, as he was forced to deal with the added attacking threat from Kyle Walker on the flank. The Toffees were able to secure an early lead, and Baines and the rest of the defensive unit did well to hold on for a point as Tottenham repeatedly threatened throughout the rest of the match. Look for the fullback to join the attack with his usual aplomb next Saturday versus West Brom.

Many fantasy players are using midfield-eligible wingers in their forward spots, but RotoWire's Alex Spalding says don't forget about Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Leighton Baines: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

June 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines scored two goals and added an assist in just 23 appearances this season as he dealt with a myriad of injuries.

The fullback waited until December to make his season debut while recovering from ankle surgery, and the emergence of Bryan Oviedo combined with lingering effects of his injury limited him for the rest of the campaign. Baines has proven himself to be one of the premier left backs in England over the last few seasons, but his age and injury history, in addition to Oviedo's presence, could see his role continue to diminish next season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines won five tackles, put in seven crosses and scored a goal on three shots during Saturday's win over Bournemouth.

The fullback was solid on the defensive end, but he was a terror going forward and made his biggest contribution by roofing a bouncing ball inside the Cherries box. Baines had one of his best all-around games of the season from a fantasy perspective on Saturday, and he will look to keep it up next week versus Leicester.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines made one cross and seven clearances in Wednesday's 4-0 drubbing loss to Liverpool.

The Toffees are in the middle of a crisis and with a raid of injuries and a crucial FA Cup semifinal just a few days ahead they weren't any match in the derby whatsoever. Seamus Coleman's injury moved Bryan Oviedo to the right back and allowed Baines to start on the left. Nevertheless, with the Toffees' defense getting worse and worse and the team's inability to win in the last six Premier League games his fantasy upside is very limited.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines (groin) is starting Wednesday against Liverpool.

Baines was held out of last weekend's match due to the injury, but he'll start in his return opposite Bryan Oviedo, who is filling in at rightback in place of the injured Seamus Coleman.

Baines could return from his groin injury Wednesday against Liverpool, manager Roberto Martinez said Saturday.

Baines was unable to play Saturday against Southampton due to the injury, which allowed Bryan Oviedo to get the start at leftback. If Baines is unable to return, Oviedo figures to get another run.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines (groin) is out Saturday against Southampton.

Bryan Oviedo will get the start at leftback in place of Baines, who apparently failed a late fitness test to even make the bench Saturday.

April 15, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Baines (groin) was one of many Everton players to have picked up a knock in the midweek match against Crystal Palace. He'll face a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's game against Southampton, according to manager Roberto Martinez.

It's been a disappointing season for Baines, who has missed much of the season through injury. He only has three clean sheets for the campaign and even with a home match against Southampton, it's been hard to trust the Everton back line all season. Bryan Oviedo has often been the man to benefit from Baines' absence.
