Albrighton came off the bench to score Leicester’s fourth goal in their 4-0 home win against Swansea on Sunday.

Albrighton came off the bench for the last eight minutes and put the icing on the cake with Leicester’s fourth. The strength of Leicester’s squad allowed for him to be rested especially with crucial games ahead. After Albrighton was a bit-part player at Aston Villa, he has had a renaissance, of sorts, at Leicester. Another wonderful romance story in a season in which Leicester has provided us with so many.

Marc Albrighton: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

April 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Albrighton took two shots and recorded 10 crosses in Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Sunderland.

Albrighton continues be a great fantasy option as he has now recorded 10 or more crosses in five of his last seven matches. Albrighton’s next match comes Sunday versus West Ham.

February 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Albrighton could start at fullback in place of the suspended Danny Simpson this weekend versus Norwich.

The 26-year-old has appeared in 26 league matches as a wide midfielder this season, but he may be called upon to slide back into Simpson's spot. However, with Marcin Wasilewski on the roster and the newly-signed Daniel Amartay ready to make his debut, Albrighton seems likely to feature in his normal role versus the Canaries.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Albrighton was issued a yellow card in Saturday's scoreless draw against Bournemouth.

The creative Albrighton was kept off the scoresheet—along with the rest of his Leicester teammates—but was issued his second yellow card in as many matches. He's up to five in FA play, but was fortunate to see this one come in 2016. He has to be careful to avoid suspension from here, but has five yellows for the rest of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Albrighton tallied an assist off nine crosses and added two shot off target and a yellow card in Saturday's 3-0 away victory over Swansea.

With the Foxes bolstering the top two goal-scorers in Premier League, there should be somebody assisting for all these goals. Albrighton is one of the key cogs in that department, accumulating five assists for the season to go along with a goal. His assignment of taking set-pieces also improves his fantasy value immensely. Next up are the desperate champions where opportunity for more counter attacks will open for Leicester - another great set for the winger to deploy his deadly crosses and long balls.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Albrighton assisted on one of the three goals for Leicester City in Saturday's fixture against West Brom.

Albrighton sent in a cross to Riyad Mahrez who put it in the back of the net for the 57th minute goal, before being substituted off later in the match. This was his fourth assist in 11 Premier League appearances this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Albrighton led Leicester with 10 crosses in a 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Saturday.

Albrighton has always been a dangerous weapon out of the midfield and this will continue to be his role this season. He'll be asked to attack down the flanks and could be a nice source of assists.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Albrighton notched another assist in Saturday’s 2-1 win against West Ham.

Albrighton found Riyad Mahrez in the opposing box and the latter made no mistake by making it 2-0 in the 38th minute. Albrighton now leads the way for the Foxes with three assists and a goal in just two games.
