Borini signed a four-year contract with Sunderland on Monday after transferring from Liverpool.

Borini spent the 2013/14 season on loan at Sunderland and the Black Cats have been trying to get him back ever since. He was adamant about staying at Liverpool and fighting for a starting job, but it never materialized, particularly after they added Christian Benteke and Danny Ings this summer, plus the arrival of Divock Origi after his loan. Borini will find playing time much easier to come by at Sunderland, and he could very well start as part of a three-man attack with Jermain Defoe and Jeremain Lens.

Manchester City has yet to allow a goal this season, and thanks to his role in their attack, Aleksandar Kolarov grabs the top spot in the weekly defender rankings yet again.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini saw action in 12 Premier League matches over the course of the 2014-15 season, finishing with just one goal and one assist after a total of 392 minutes on the pitch.

Borini spent the majority of his season on the bench as four other Liverpool forwards ended up with larger roles than the 24-year-old. He's on contract at Anfield for another two years, but his best bet to see playing time over that time span will be on a potential loan stint with another club.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini has made eight Premier League appearances for Liverpool this season.

Borini only has 10 shots on the season and is a lackluster fantasy option as a result. He is often subbed onto the pitch at the end of matches and will need a wave of injuries to sweep over his squad to see his stock rise before the season comes to a close.

Borini said that he is happy at Liverpool and will try to make a place for himself in the squad this season, reports the Daily Mail.

Borini insisted he will not seek a loan move in January in search of more playing time. He turned down some loan moves in the summer knowing his playing time would be limited, but he remains determined to create a spot at Liverpool for himself.

Borini could be in the starting XI for the Merseyside derby on Saturday if Daniel Sturridge remains out with his hamstring injury, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Borini was all but told to leave Anfield if he wanted to get consistent playing time, but after deciding to stay and fight for his spot, he has appeared in a number of matches thanks to Sturridge's injury. Rickie Lambert is no longer ahead of him on the depth chart, and he could even contribute off the bench when Sturridge does return, though his fantasy value will be limited.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini started Liverpool's Premier League match against West Ham on Saturday and took three shots, with two on goal, before being subbed off in the 75th minute for Rickie Lambert.

Borini decided to stick around Anfield after being told he wouldn't have much of a future at the club, but he has now come on as a sub in a Champions League match (Tuesday against Ludogorets) and now gets his first Premier League start in more than a year. While his playing time is a result of Daniel Sturridge's hamstring injury, Borini could be moving ahead of Rickie Lambert on the depth chart. Even if Sturridge comes back next weekend for the Liverpool derby, it's possible Borini could continue to play as a sub behind him.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini came on in the 71st minute of Liverpool's 0-1 loss to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Borini came on for Lazar Markovic in an attempt by manager Brendan Rodgers to throw all his attacking options at the Villa defense. Borini and fellow sub Rickie Lambert looked rusty and ultimately weren't able to apply much pressure on Villa keeper Brad Guzan. With Daniel Sturridge (hamstring) out for several weeks, Borini could see a few more sub appearances in the meantime.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Borini turned down opportunities to sign with Queens Park Rangers and Sunderland before the transfer window closed, and he said he is "very happy" with his decision to stay at Liverpool, the Liverpool Echo reports.

While Borini may be happy at Anfield, he isn't going to get nearly enough playing time to make any potential fantasy owners happy. He may get some playing time in some domestic cup matches, but he is unlikely to displace Daniel Sturridge, Mario Balotelli or Rickie Lambert for playing time during Premier League play.
