RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wickham grabbed a goal in the opening minute and led Sunderland with five shots in the 1-1 draw to Stoke City Saturday.

Stoke were caught on their heels and Wickham capitalized with Sunderland's quickest goal of the season. This is now two goals in two games and it appears Wickham has found some form after struggling the majority of the season.

Wickham scored a goal on two shots in the 4-1 loss to Crystal Palace Saturday.

This was the definition of a garbage time goal as he scored in the 90th minute down 4-0. Wickham has had a disappointing season recording only four goals and one assist in 30 games. He shows signs of stardom, but the consistency just isn't there for the youngster. Look for Wickham to start next Saturday when Sunderland travel to Arsenal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wickham is in the starting XI for Sunderland's Premier League match against Swansea City on Tuesday.

Jermain Defoe will start as the lone striker up front, but Wickham has shown he can produce from the win, making him an interesting play in daily games gives Swansea's struggles at points this season.

Manager Gus Poyet said Thursday that Wickham is rated as 50/50 to play Saturday against Swansea City.

Wickham picked up the injury during warmups of Tuesday's FA Cup match against Fulham, and while Poyet noted that one of Wickham or Jack Rodwell (knock) could play Saturday, he did not specify which he thought was closer. If Wickham sits, Steven Fletcher could be inserted back in the starting lineup to play behind or alongside Jermain Defoe.

Wickham picked up a knock during warmups of Tuesday's FA Cup match against Fulham, manager Gus Poyet said after the game.

The severity of the issue wasn't disclosed, but Wickham should be considered an injury doubt for Saturday's match against Swansea City.

Wickham led Sunderland with three shots and picked up a goal in the 2-0 win over Burnley Saturday.

Wickham had a nice game grabbing a goal and leading the team in shots, but did have six turnovers on the match as well. Wickham shows signs of stardom, but is too inconsistent to trust on a regular basis for fantasy purposes. Wickham has only three goals on 55 shots this season, but could very well lead Sunderland in goals if he continues to start and get off shots at a consistent basis. Look for Wickham to start yet again next Saturday when the Black Cats travel to Swansea.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wickham had a very active game Sunday, getting off seven shots against Aston Villa in a scoreless draw.

Unfortunately for Wickham, he was never really close to finding the back of the net with only two of his shots on goal, but the activity is a promising sign going forward. Wickham has had over 20 shots combined in his past four games, but has only scored once. If he can find some consistency with his strikes he could become one of the most dangerous strikers in the English Premier League. He'll look to continue firing against Man City next Thursday.
