Wickham led Sunderland with five shots in the 1-1 draw with West Ham Saturday.

Wickham is Sunderland's best offensive player and he showed that with his five-shot performance. It's surprising he only has two goals on the season, but he should turn that around and will likely be Sunderland's leading scorer by the end of the year. Sunderland fans will need Wickham to show up next weekend against derby rivals Newcastle in what's always a heated matchup.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wickham opened up the scoring Wednesday with a nice finish in the 4-1 loss to Manchester City.

The goal appeared to be a good omen for Sunderland taking an early lead on Man City, but the flood gates just opened up after that and Sunderland allowed an unanswered four goals. Wickham has looked good recently and should continue his good form against a poor defense in Liverpool this weekend.

Wickham was Sunderland's most dangerous weapon Saturday, getting off five shots in the scoreless draw to Chelsea.

Wickham has looked like Sunderland's best player all season long even though he only has one goal on the year. It just seems as a matter of time before he gets going in the stat sheet, so he may be a good buy in fantasy before his breakout occurs. Sunderland have another tough matchup next weekend hosting Manchester City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
