Coutinho lined up two assists adding seven shots, three on target, and three crosses in Saturday against Aston Villa.

Coutinho was one of the most exciting Liverpool players to watch. He helped the team produce an incredible fast-pace, one-touch tempo resulting in lots of shots on goal. The fantasy upside of the attacking midfielder in that kind of offense would be enormous if he could only start punching in some of his loads of shots on goal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coutunho got off 10 shots, but failed to score in a 1-1 draw to Norwich on Sunday.

Only two of his shots were on goal, so while the 10-spot looks promising, he was never too close to scoring. The young Brazilian has 27 shots now on the season, but has scored only one goal. He'll have to become more efficient in his finishes and go for quality rather than quantity. Coutinho should be in for another good start against Aston Villa next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coutinho took four shots (three on target) in Monday's goalless draw against Arsenal.

Coutinho was unlucky to have not scored in the opening minutes of the game when he cracked a shot off the crossbar. Time and again he was in the middle of the offensive buildup play and was stonewalled by Petr Cech numerous times on would-be scoring opportunities including another where the Czech goalkeeper was able to get only a fingertip on the shot. He's quickly proven himself as one of the best No. 10's in all of the Premier League.

Coutinho scored possibly the goal of the week on one of his three shots to give Liverpool the 1-0 win over Stoke City on Sunday.

After skying his previous attempt to the roof of the Britannia, Coutinho broke what looked to be a goalless draw on a masterful 86th-minute strike that had nowhere to go but the back of the net. With both second-half substitutions for Liverpool moving Coutinho forward into a more attacking position, he looked far more comfortable for the final third of the game. After scoring five goals in 35 Premier League appearances last season, the 23-year-old Coutinho looks to take the next step forward as he becomes one of the top attacking midfielders in the EPL.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coutinho finished the 2014-15 season with five goals and five assists after 35 Premier League appearances.

Coutinho was highly involved in Liverpool's offense throughout the season as he managed to accrue 103 shots, 34 on goal, during his third year with Liverpool. Perhaps more importantly, the 22-year-old signed a mid-season deal that will keep him at Anfield through 2020. The club's intent to retain Coutinho suggests that the Brazilian will continue to play a vital role in the offense for years to come.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coutinho took five failed shot attempts, two on goal, during the 1-1 tie with Chelsea on Sunday.

Coutinho took more shots than any of his teammates on Sunday and has now taken a total of 28 shots over his last five Premier League matches. He'll hope to fare better against Crystal Palace on Saturday, a team that is allowing 1.39 goals per match this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coutinho registered a goal and an assist during Saturday's 2-1 victory over QPR. He also took five shots.

Coutinho is getting plenty of opportunities with the ball as he's now taken a total of 22 shots over his last four Premier League matches. With just three Premier matches left on the schedule, the 22-year-old is one of the best options across most formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coutinho took a staggering nine shots against West Brom on Saturday, although only two of them were on goal during the 0-0 stalemate.

Coutinho was the focal point of Liverpool's offense Saturday but he never managed to put one in the back of the net. With Daniel Sturridge's (hip) availability for Tuesday's match against Hull City uncertain, Coutinho may be in store for another abundance of opportunities after the short rest between matches.
