Pantilimon recored seven saves while maintaining a clean sheet in a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Monday.

Pantilimon has made all of the Premier League starts in goal for Sunderland this season, and has saved 48 shots in those matches. This was only his second Premier League clean sheet this season, however it's his second in just four matches. He'll probably continue starting, while making plenty of saves with a defense that allows a high volume of shots on goal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon made three saves and conceded once in Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Southampton.

Coming off a disastrous performance against Everton, the Black Cats stepped up their defense, holding Southampton without a goal from open play. However, a 69th minute strike from the spot spoiled Pantilimon's clean sheet and snatched a point away from them. They currently sit in 19th place on six points from 12 matches and will need a strong rest of the season to avoid relegation. After the international break, the team will look for points as they travel to south London to take on Crystal Palace.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon had a nightmare outing on Sunday, making three saves and conceding six goals in a 6-2 loss to Everton.

To be fair to Pantilimon, most of the goals were not his fault, as Everton were just brilliantly efficient on Sunday. It's been a rough year for Pantilimon, as he has just one clean sheet in 11 starts while conceding a league-high 25 goals. Pantilimon has yet another tough matchup next Saturday against offensively-potent Southampton.

Pantilimon produced eight saves en route to a clean sheet as Sunderland defeated Newcastle on Sunday.

Pantilimon put together a stellar display Sunday, denying all eight of Newcastle's on-target attempts and clinching his first clean sheet of the campaign. That performance should provide Pantilimon with a needed lift ahead of this weekend's game at Everton.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon conceded a goal and picked a yellow card in the away loss to West Bromich Albion on Saturday.

The Romanian made a brutal mistake for the goal. He came out to claim a cross but couldn’t hold on to the ball with Saido Berahino also going for it. It was a dummy for the striker, after that, to just knock the ball into the empty goal. The keeper also picked his yellow card in the aftermath of the goal pretending that Berahino handled the ball.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon conceded two goals but made four saves and had three claims in the home draw versus West Ham United on Saturday.

The Romanian couldn’t do much about the first goal but definitely should’ve cleared better the Manuel Lanzini’s shot that came just before Dimitri Payet’s equalizer. He was very busy after the team was reduced to ten men and partially redeemed himself helping his team hold off to the point, at least. With the Black Cats in total chaos and already having the worst defense you should try to avoid him in any formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon made four saves and conceded three goals in a 3-0 loss to Manchester United on Saturday.

This was just one of those games where it seemed as though Manchester United were in Sunderland's half all game long, as Man U out-shot, out-possessed, and out-cornered Sunderland. These types of games are far too common for Sunderland and it makes Pantilimon a poor source of clean sheets. It also makes him valuable for saves, so his fantasy relevancy is all a matter of format. Pantilimon and Sunderland have another tough matchup against West Ham next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Pantilimon made three saves and conceded one goal in Sunday's 1-0 loss to Tottenham.

Sunderland currently sits at the bottom of the table, though Pantilimon did enough for the majority of the game to collect a point. However, an 82nd minute strike by Ryan Mason erased the clean sheet for Pantilimon and the rest of the Black Cats. He's yet to record a clean sheet this season and has conceded multiple goals in four-of-six games this season including conceding three to Exeter in the league cup.
