Wickham took two shots, with one on goal, and won five aerial duals during Sunderland's scoreless draw with Leicester City on Saturday.

Wickham has been committing fouls at an unusual rate, committing another four in this match, while drawing an unusual six. This just shows that while he hasn't been scoring, he is clearly an active participant in the game and a dangerous weapon if he keeps drawing fouls. His future at Sunderland is a bit cloudy, so with the winter transfer window approaching, he's a player worth keeping an eye on.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wickham was very active Sunday, but was unable to score in the 1-1 draw to Everton.

Wickham was ornery once again comitting four fouls for back to back weeks, but also drew three fouls and got off three shots in a very active game for the midfielder. While he didn't score or assist, it's nice to see him so involved in the game and to be a regular starter. Sunderland go on an international break and then play Leicester in two weeks from now.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wickham is considering a transfer abroad in order to regain his form as his contract with Sunderland is due to expire this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Wickham was recently one of the hottest prospects, but hasn't made the impact he would have expected with Sunderland. He has scored 10 goals in 60 matches, and also spent time on oan at Sheffield Wednesday. He will be free to negotiate with other teams in January.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wickham was not in the starting lineup Saturday, but entered in just after halftime for Darren Fletcher.

Wickham was a rare sub today and was in an ornery mood getting a yellow card and committing four fouls. This was probably just a day off for the striker and he gave way to William Buckley who was ineffective in this match. Look for Wickham to get back in the starting XI next weekend against Crystal Palace.

Wickham scored an early fourth-minute goal and grabbed an assist in the 3-1 win over Stoke City on Saturday.

Wickham has looked good this year and was finally rewarded with his first goal of the season. He started in Adam Johnson's role this weekend and looked more effective, so it remains to be seen exactly what they do with that spot. Keep an eye on the situation as the position change could become huge for Wickham.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wickham started and looked good Saturday after dealing with a minor back ailment this week.

Wickham played 78 minutes Saturday and looked solid getting off three shots and drawing five fouls in the foul fest. Wickham may have secured the starting striker role for Sunderland so while he's a risky play in fantasy he may be good value at this point.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wickham got a rare start as the main striker in the 0-0 draw to Burnley Saturday.

Wickham is a regular starter for Sunderland, but got a nod as the main striker Saturday getting off four shots in a solid performance. Sunderland seem to always be looking to fill that number nine slot, so if Wickham can snatch that role he could be a nice cheap source of goals in the coming weeks. Sunderland host Stoke and Swansea their next two matches.

Wickham started and got off three shots in the 0-1 loss to QPR Saturday.

Wickham has looked dynamic to start off the new campaign and has looked to secure a starting spot. Keep an eye on him in fantasy as he could be a nice value play at a very cheap price. Wickham and Sunderland host Tottenham in their next match in two weeks.
