Rodwell led Sunderland with three shots in the 4-0 blowout loss to Aston Vila Saturday.

Rodwell also led the team in passing accuracy as he completed 87% of his passes, but was unfortunate not to score in the blowout. Rodwell had had a bit of a disappointing season scoring only three goals on 25 shots, and contributing zero assists in his 17 games played. Sunderland's next match comes next Saturday when they travel to West Ham.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodwell started and was able to score on his three shots in the 1-1 draw to Hull City Tuesday.

After being a question mark with a groin injury, Rodwell made good of his start and scored the only goal for Sunderland Tuesday. Rodwell also picked up a yellow card in the match, but played a full 90 minutes. The full time action is a good sign after recovering from the groin injury and he should remain in the starting XI going forward. Sunderland's next match comes in 10 days time when they host Aston Villa in an important relegation battle.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodwell (groin) is in the starting XI for Tuesday's match against Hull City.

Rodwell has missed the past few games due to the ailment, but he'll slot back into the starting lineup in his return. While it's a decent matchup from a fantasy perspective, he hasn't been the most reliable option this season, making his selection more of a dart than anything else.

Rodwell (groin) will not play Saturday against Manchester United, but he may be able to return Tuesday against Hull City, the Sunderland Echo reports.

Rodwell has been sidelined for nearly a month due to the ailment, and while he's close to full fitness, the United match will come too soon.

Manager Gus Poyet said Thursday that Rodwell (knock) is 50/50 to face Swansea City on Saturday.

Rodwell has scored against both Manchester clubs this season, but unfortunately they were his only scores of the season, and the first came back on Aug. 24 against United.

Rodwell scored off a header against his former club in the 3-2 loss to Manchester City Thursday.

Rodwell played well in the match completing over 90% of his passes, scoring his header, and recording three blocked shots. The youngster has been struggling with this being only his second goal, but has looked promising getting off shots in every match, while providing defensively. Rodwell should be in the starting XI next Saturday when Sunderland take on Liverpool.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodwell got his second consecutive start Wednesday and led Sunderland with four shots in the 4-1 loss to Manchester City.

Rodwell surprisingly saw some bench time prior to the two starts, but has regained the mid-field role and has looked good in the starts. A young promising player like Rodwell should continue to see starts going forward. The Black Cats travel to Anfield this weekend to take on Liverpool.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rodwell led Sunderland with three shots Saturday, but was scoreless as Sunderland lost 0-2 to Arsenal.

Rodwell seems to be Sunderland's best offensive weapon, but he only has one goal on the season. If he can continue to be attacking and get off shots there should be some production coming. Keep an eye on him as he faces some poor defenses in Crystal Palace and Everton the next two weeks.
