Fonte had three tackles, three clearances and won two headers while keeping a clean sheet in Sunday’s 0-0 draw against Leicester City.

The Saints were not pressured up the center of the pitch as the Foxes were inconsistent in their attack. Southampton have recorded six straight clean sheets across all competitions, with Fonte starting for five. Fonte will have a good opportunity to help his squad earn their seventh straight clean sheet in two weeks against Burnley.

FPL Roundup: The God of Manchester

Sergio Aguero has been the dominant striker in Manchester over the past few seasons, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic is putting up a fight for the top spot.

Jose Fonte: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

September 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 3-0 victory over West Ham.

A bit off the pace at the beginning of the season, Fonte has settled in nicely, keeping clean sheets in each of his past three matches across all comps (two in the Premier League and one in the EFL Cup). After a busy summer in France for the Euros, Fonte looks back on the mark as the Saints will look to perform well both domestically and in Europe for the first time. Trips to Israel and Leicester await this week before the international break.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Swansea City.

Fonte sat out of Thursday's Europa League contest against Sparta Prague in an effort to keep their 32-year-old skipper fresh with four concurrent campaigns running and it paid dividends as the Portuguese centre-half calmly patrolled the back line. After running off a tremendous clean sheet record upon Fraser Forster's return last season, Southampton haven't been the same defensively, but with back-to-back clean sheets across all comps, Fonte will hope to return to that form from last season.

August 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte is in contention to make the starting XI for Friday's match with Manchester United.

Fonte was an unused substitute during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Watford. After his late return to Southampton's training camp because of Portugal's Euro 2016 success, Fonte has been working to regain fitness in order to return for the grueling Premier League season.

July 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte started four matches for Portugal during Euro 2016, tallying three clean sheets, three shots (two on target), four tackles and one yellow card on two fouls. He improves his international record to 15 caps with no goals yet. Portugal won Euro 2016 after a triumphant 1-0 extra-time victory in the final over the hosts France.

Fonte was an indispensable part of Southampton's defense last season. The 32-year-old center back played a major role in one of the top defenses in the league and helped bolster a six-straight-clean-sheets run at one point, though, he's not much of a fantasy factor outside the shutout performances. He finished the season with two goals, one assist, 11 clean sheets, 53 tackles and four yellow and one red cards.

July 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte helped secure a clean sheet during Wednesday's 2-0 semi-final victory over Wales.

Fonte did not enjoy his busiest 90 minutes, as Portugal made things tough on a Welsh side that was without Aaron Ramsey, but he held things together from a positional standpoint and helped book a place in the final. Portugal have allowed just one goal in 330 minutes since re-configuring its back line to include Fonte, and he should keep his place heading into Sunday's pivotal match versus the winner of Germany and France.

June 26, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte kept a clean sheet in Saturday's 1-0 victory in extra time over Croatia in the Round of 16 at the Euros.

The Southampton skipper turned in arguably his best performance of the Euros against Croatia, effectively batting back all of their attacks and not letting anything get on frame. His eight clearances and four interceptions were second on his team in both. He'll need another strong performance Thursday against the talented Polish attack in the quarterfinals.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Fonte tallied an assist in Sunday's 4-2 victory over Manchester City.

Fonte might not have been at his best defensively, but did provide a rare assist. That's now nine matches in a row for the Saints' skipper without a clean sheet while the assist was his first in 42 matches across all competitions.
