Coutinho has two goals and two assists over 16 Premier League starts this season.

Coutinho had somewhat of a disappointing start to his season, although his position as a starter still gives him value at midfielder. The 22-year-old and Liverpool will pick up the Premier League schedule this Saturday against West Ham, a team that is conceding 1.14 goals per match.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coutinho was unsuccessful on all four of his shots during Saturday's 1-0 victory over Sunderland.

Coutinho routinely gets opportunities to score on the pitch, although he only has two Premier League goals this season. He has somewhat underperformed to that degree but could catch fire any week now. He'll look to make that happen against Aston Villa on Saturday, a team that is conceding 1.1 goals per match.

Coutinho took five unsuccessful shots during Monday's third round victory over AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup.

Coutinho attempted the second-highest amount of shots behind Steven Gerrard's seven against Wimbledon. The 22-year-old played the full 90 and will head into Saturday's match against Sunderland looking for only his third goal of the Premier League season.

Coutinho took three unsuccessful shots during the 2-2 tie with Leicester City on Thursday.

Coutinho currently sits with two goals and two assists on the Premier League season. He's always a threat to contribute offensively during any given match, although he often takes a backseat to other viable scorers on the Liverpool squad.

Coutinho picked up an assist during Monday's 4-1 rout of Swansea City.

Coutinho managed to fire off six shots during the match, although only three were on goal and they didn't get past the keeper. He'll be looking for his third goal and third assist of the season when Liverpool faces Leicester City on New Years Day.

Coutinho picked up an assist on Raheem Sterling's 62nd-minute goal during Liverpool's 1-0 win at Burnley on Boxing Day.

Coutinho now has a goal and an assist in his last two matches, and he seems to be solidifying his spot in manager Brendan Rodgers' starting XI. Up next is a home match against Swansea City on Monday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Manager Brendan Rodgers said that Coutinho was held out of Tuesday's Premier League match against Leicester because of a knee issue, but he is expected to play Saturday against Sunderland.

Coutinho has been in-and-out of the starting XI over the past month, and he has only one goal and no assists in 11 total appearances. With Adam Lallana playing very well right now, Coutinho's fantasy upside is a bit limited.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Coutinho scored in the 89th minute of Liverpool's 3-2 win over QPR on Sunday.

Coutinho picked up his first goal of the season after coming off the bench for Adam Lallana. The Brazilian is a nice option for manager Brendan Rodgers late in games, but for fantasy purposes Coutinho can be ignored until more minutes come his way.
