De Bruyne tallied an assist in Sunday's 3-1 victory over West Ham.

In the year since arriving from Wolfsburg, De Bruyne has helped ease the burden off David Silva's shoulders to be the creative engine for City. In four matches across all comps, De Bruyne has three assists, expertly taking free kicks and feathering in crosses that gives City's lethal finishers plenty of chances to score goals. On Sunday, De Bruyne found Fernandinho, hardly a clinical goal scorer, for his first in the Premier League since his arrival.

Kevin De Bruyne: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne tallied an assist and was issued a yellow card in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Stoke City.

The creative Belgian tallied his first assist of the Premier League season after supplying an inch-perfect free kick to the outstretched head of Sergio Aguero to double City's advantage. With both De Bruyne and David Silva on the squad, City certainly doesn't lack quality on set pieces, but that internal competition could at times limit De Bruyne's statistical production. Regardless, with as much talent as City has up front, De Bruyne certainly won't lack for assists, having picked up nine in 25 Premier League matches last season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne is starting on Saturday against Sunderland.

There was some question as to whether De Bruyne was fit enough to start after his long run in the European Championship, but he is ready to go and will line up in the no. 10 role behind Sergio Aguero.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne started all five matches for Belgium during Euro 2016, tallying three assists on 54 crosses, 21 shots, with 10 on target, five dribbles and five fouls. He takes his international record to 45 caps and 12 goals. Belgium suffered a shocking 3-1 upset defeat at the hands of Wales and were knocked out of the tournament in the quarterfinals.

De Bruyne was sensational with Manchester City last season. The 25-year-old creative midfielder played with a vengeance in his second stint at Premier League boasting enormous fantasy upside regardless of missing a chunk of the season with a long-term injury. He finished his City debut campaign with seven goals, nine assists and an average of two shots per game in 25 Premier League appearances (22 starts).

June 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne tallied two assists in Sunday's 4-0 victory over Hungary in the Round of 16 at the Euros.

Rivaling Mesut Ozil and David Silva for most creative midfielder in the Premier League, De Bruyne picked out two perfect balls on set pieces, finding Toby Alderweireld in the 10th minute and having his effort saved by a fingertip later in the half. His second assist came on a through ball to Eden Hazard, who did the rest of the work himself to put Belgium up 3-0, just seconds after making it 2-0 to secure their place in the quarterfinals where they'll take on Wales.

June 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne won two tackles, attempted three shots, put in 11 crosses and earned an assist in Saturday's 3-0 steamrolling of Ireland.

After a quiet performance in the group opener versus Italy, De Bruyne looked like his usual dynamic self Saturday and he helped get the scoring under way as he slipped a pass to Romelu Lukaku at the top of the box before the latter slotted it home. De Bruyne is one of the most gifted attackers in the tournament and he should be in line for another big performance as his side look to wrap up second spot in the group Wednesday versus Sweden.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne scored a goal on three shots (two on target) in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

De Bruyne was phenomenal all match and broke through the deadlock at the time just past halftime with a near post strike that exploited Petr Cech's biggest weakness. After sitting out the past two Premier League matches, the goal was his first since Apr. 2 and his second this calendar year (nine matches). Since arriving from Wolfsburg on the eve of the transfer window closing, he has seven goals and nine assists in the Premier League.

April 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne scored on four shots (three on target) and added one cross and two key passes in 56 minutes of play in Saturday's 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

The return of the creative midfielder immediately changed the face of the team. He was involved in almost every attack the Citizens had and even managed to return to the scoreboard. His early substitution was dictated due to him still gaining full fitness after more than three months absence from the fields. Once he's back to top form, though, his six goals and nine assists in just 18 Premier League starts and two shots, two crosses and 3.5 key passes average per game turn him into an irreplaceable fantasy force.
