RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shawcross scored in the second minute of Stoke City's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Thursday, while also totaling two tackles, two interceptions, and a game-high nine clearances.

Shawcross took a Peter Crouch header and redirected it passed United keeper David de Gea to nab his second goal of the season, with his first coming back on Aug. 24 against Hull. Up next in Premier League play is a tough road game at Arsenal on Jan. 11.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shawcross scored in the 83rd minute of Stoke City's 1-1 draw with Hull City on Sunday.

Shawcross ventured forward from his center-back position to clean up an effort that ricocheted around before landing at the defender's feet to finish from close range. While he'll certainly welcome a rare goal, Shawcross will now focus on halting Manchester City's high-powered attack next weekend.

Shawcross picked up two yellow cards in Stoke City's 0-1 loss to Tottenham on Saturday.

Shawcross will miss next weekend's match against Fulham at the Britannia, but will be able to return for Stoke's season-finale at West Brom.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shawcross scored an own goal in the fifth minute of Sunday's loss to Liverpool.

Shawcross unfortunately had the ball rifle off him just minutes into Sunday's contest. If that wasn't bad enough, Stoke City's defense conceded five goals on the day, further reducing Shawcross' fantasy output.

Shawcross suffered a groin injury during Wednesday's Capital One Cup match against Manchester United, the Daily Mail reports.

The severity of the injury isn't know right away, although Shawcross had to be replaced by Charlie Adam when he suffered his injury. It's tough timing for Shawcross, Stoke and fantasy owners, with four matches coming up in the next 11 days.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shawcross has started all 11 Premier League games for Stoke City this season, earning three clean sheets, one goal, and two yellow cards along the way.

Shawcross epitomizes Stoke City's physical approach, evidenced by his 4.2 successful aerial duels per game. With a presence like that, he's often a threat to score on set-pieces.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Shawcross could miss Stoke's game at Manchester United this weekend due to an illness that has kept him out for much of this week, Sky Sports reports.

Shawcross reportedly has been ill all week and consequently has not been able to train much ahead of Stoke's visit to Old Trafford. Should he miss Saturday's tie, the Potters will have to look elsewhere for a partner to Robert Huth, who will surely need help defending United's strike force of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.
