DraftKings Fantasy Soccer: Saturday EPL Targets

Jamie Vardy returns from his two-match ban to face an Everton side that has been terrible defensively this season.

May 1, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Anita tallied a clean sheet, shot off target, five crosses, two dribbles and five tackles in Saturday's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

The exceptionally versatile, Anita, seems to have found his forte on the right back. He's been a regular starter all season long but his performance has seemingly been elevated of late playing as full back. He has a goal and two assists and has been involved much more in the attack in the five games on the flanks. Anita will try to continue his prolific run on Saturday versus both the worst offense and defense of abysmal Aston Villa.

Anita tallied an assist and took one shot in Saturday's 2-2 draw versus Liverpool.

Anita has performed well of late with one goal and two assists in his last four matches, with his next match coming Saturday versus Crystal Palace.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Anita scored on his lone shot and picked up a yellow card on five tackles in Tuesday's 1-1 draw to Man City.

An unbelievable run on the right flank followed by a cut to the middle and a fantastic finish saw Anita score a masterpiece of a goal - his first in two years. He's been immensely versatile starting everywhere along the defensive line and in midfield but for the most part, outside the last three games, unproductive in fantasyland. So it would be hard to trust him to continue getting the big stats. In addition, his back-to-back yellow cards that got his total number to six on the season limit his overall value.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Anita tallied one assist and took no shots in Saturday's 3-1 loss at Southampton.

The Dutch defensive midfielder has been consistently in the lineup since regaining fitness in March, but this is the first sign of production we've seen from him lately. Given the lack of of quality at Newcastle and the lack of finishing prowess from Anita, there's not much fantasy-wise to hang your hat on here.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Anita (hamstring) is fit for Saturday's match against Bournemouth.

While Anita was unable to crack the squad on Wednesday despite being in full training, he should be available for Saturday's match against Bournemouth. He's missed the last eight Premier League matches as he manages this injury, but could provide more cover in a holding midfield role upon his return to full-strength.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Anita (hamstring) is not in the 18-man squad to face Stoke City on Wednesday.

Anita returned to full training last week, but he may need to continue working on his match fitness before he's considered for selection.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Anita (hamstring) is fit to play Wednesday against Stoke.

Anita is one of several Newcastle players who are ready to return from injury, so while it's certainly a plus that he's fit again, it may take a while to get his match fitness back.
