Whelan started two Republic of Ireland matches during Euro 2016, taking one shot off target and receiving one yellow card on one foul extending his international record to 73 caps and two goals. Ireland lost 2-1 out to France and were knocked out of the tournament at the round of 16.

Whelan had a very solid campaign for Stoke last season. The 32-year-old midfielder was very reliable, though, he wasn't much of a fantasy factor as he had primarily defensive functions as a holding midfielder and finished the season with one assist and six yellow cards in 37 Premier League starts.

FanDuel Fantasy Soccer: Key Stats for Lineup Building

With FanDuel introducing English Premier League contests this week, RotoWire's Andrew Laird looks into the key stats to focus on when building lineups.

Glenn Whelan: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

April 7, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Whelan could miss Sunday's match against Liverpool because of back spasms, the Stoke Sentinel reports.

Whelan has been unable to train this week due to the ailment, and while he's been a solid starter this season, the return of Xherdan Shaqiri (thigh) will help ease the blow.

April 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Whelan had one assist and one shot attempt in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Swansea City.

This attacking output was a rare occurrence for the Stoke captain, as the assist marked his first of the season and his shot was just his seventh attempt all year. If you're starting Whelan at center back, you're doing it for the consistency of tackles, clean sheets, and above all, minutes. Despite Saturday's assist by Whelan, he remains a high-floor, low-ceiling defensive option.

April 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Whelan returned from international duty, but according to manager Mark Huges, he is "struggling a bit."

Whelan has featured in every league match for Stoke City this season, so not having him could be a problem, especially with Xherdan Shaqiri also missing out. Ibrahim Afellay and Giannelli Imbula should draw starts in the Stoke midfield along with Marko Arnautovic.

March 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Whelan is facing his 300th Stoke City first-team appearance on Saturday versus Southampton, according to Stoke Sentinel.

Whelan was signed by Stoke in Jan 2008 and has been an invaluable piece of the team for eight seasons now. And while he has 29 Premier League starts already this season, playing as a defensive midfielder with no goals or assists and with five yellow cards limits his fantasy value significantly.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Whelan (calf) is starting Monday against Everton.

Whelan will partner with Geoff Cameron in the holding midfield spots, which don't lend themselves to lots of fantasy points in most formats.

December 27, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Whelan (calf) will be a game time decision on Monday versus Everton.

The Irish was withdrawn at half-time against the Red Devils on Boxing Day with complaints of a knock. If he's unable to start Charlie Adam or Marco van Ginkel, who replaced Whelan, will slot in the vacant holding midfielder spot. None of the three is a major fantasy factor, though, as they play as holding midfielders.

December 27, 2013

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Whelan picked up two yellow cards during Thursday's match against Newcastle.

Both came in the first half, which started the cavalcade of difficulties for Stoke, who saw Marc Wilson sent off just three minutes after Whelan was tossed. It comes at a very difficult time for Stoke, who will play Tottenham this Sunday.
