Pantilimon made four saves and conceded two goals in a 2-2 draw to Aston Villa on Saturday.

This is simply what Pantilimon provides as his defense plain stinks. He'll be a fantastic source of saves all season long, but he'll likely finish in the top-five in goals allowed by he end of the season. If your format rewards saves more than goals allowed, he's a great cheap option. He'll be busy yet again in his next match against Tottenham on September 13th after an international break.

Aleksandar Kolarov has been an excellent fantasy option this season, and a home match against Watford on Saturday puts him atop the weekly defender rankings.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon made a whopping eight saves in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Swansea City.

Pantilimon kept out the away side with eight saves but was unable to register a clean sheet due to Bafetimbi Gomis' first half goal. Pantilimon regularly puts up big numbers on the saves column and had 11 clean sheets last season.

Pantilimon conceded three goals and made three saves in Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Norwich City.

After conceding four times to Leicester City in the last fixture, Pantilimon struggled again. After conceding just 33 times in 28 appearances last season, he's already surrendered seven goals. While Vito Mannone is far from an ideal option for the Black Cats, more rough appearances from Pantilimon could move him out of the starting role.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon was dreadful in Saturday's 4-2 defeat to Leicester City, conceding four times while making four saves.

After a terrific debutante season for Pantilimon in 2014-15 for Sunderland where he conceded only 33 times in 28 Premier League matches, garnering 11 clean sheets in the process, he struggled to find form in Saturday's drubbing by Leicester City. The Romanian international keeper will look to bounce-back next weekend as they take on freshly promoted Norwich City.

Pantilimon has been ruled out for Romania's Euro 2016 qualifier against Northern Ireland on June 13 because of a knee injury, according to the Newcastle Chronicle.

Pantilimon suffered the injury against Arsenal last month, which then kept him out of the Premier League finale against Arsenal. The injury is not expected to sideline him for long, and he's likely to be fully fit for the start of next season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon got the final game of the season off in the 3-1 loss to Chelsea on Sunday.

Pantilimon had a fantastic season and simply got a day off in a meaningless game Sunday. He had a fantastic season after being inserted into the starting XI making 109 saves in 28 games while recording 11 clean sheets.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon had an easy day at the office Saturday, recording a clean sheet while making no saves in the 0-0 draw to Leicester.

Pantilimon has been fantastic this season, and managed another clean sheet without having to do anything Saturday. It appears Sunderland will survive the season and they can thank Pantilimon as they were in the relegation zone when he was entered in the starting XI and out of it now with two games remaining. Sunderland have a make-up match on Wednesday when they travel to Arsenal in a very tough matchup.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon made four saves en route to a clean sheet in the 2-0 victory over Everton Saturday.

Sunderland were thoroughly outplayed, but won where it mattered by outscoring Everton 2-0. Pantilimon is trying to keep Sunderland out of the relegation zone and will be looked at as a hero if he does so with his impressive goalkeeping. Sunderland's next match is a winable one as they host Leicester next Saturday.
