Yanga-Mbiwa served his suspension and will be available for selection 14 Oct. versus Nice.

The center back will return immediately to the starting XI for another derby after the international break probably pushing the young Emanuel Mammana back to the bench.

September 30, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yanga-Mbiwa will be unavailable for selection Sunday versus St.Etienne due to a suspension.

Yanga-Mbiwa has accumulated three yellow cards within the first 10 matches and will have to serve an one-match automatic suspension. His absence will only add to Lyon's woes this season. The center back wasn't much of a fantasy factor, however. Emanuel Mammana will start in his place Sunday.

September 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yanga-Mbiwa recorded a clean sheet, one shot on target and three dribbles in Wednesday's Champions League 3-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb.

With Lyon completely dominating for the better part of the game, Yanga-Mbiwa was able to look upfront and even register some offensive activity. That, unfortunately, may not be the case in his next three Champions League fixtures where he may have to defend for his life visiting Sevilla, first, and facing the Old Lady twice after that.

August 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yanga-Mbiwa tallied a clean sheet, four clearances and a yellow card on two fouls in Friday's win over Caen.

Despite a strong defensive effort from Lyon, Yanga-Mbiwa was fairly quiet. He isn't likely to be a dominant fantasy option this season in leagues that give points for peripheral stats, but he should get a decent number of clean sheets.

August 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yanga-Mbiwa kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Nancy.

The French centre-half struggled in his season at Roma, but found good form toward the end of last season for Lyon. After struggling against PSG (something nearly all teams in Ligue 1 do), Yanga-Mbiwa was assured at the back in their opening day victory over the newly-promoted Nancy. Yanga-Mbiwa and the rest of the Lyon back-four will look to make it two-in-a-row Friday evening against Caen.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

AS Roma has sold the center back to Lyon, less than a year after the club acquired him, Football Italia reports.

Yanga-Mbiwa was a bad investment for Roma. Luckily another club was willing to pay slightly more for his services.

January 26, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

The defender has made his 20th appearance with Roma, which means the club will be required to purchase the player who has been on loan from Newcastle, Football Italia reports.

Yanga-Mbiwa has been pressed into action due to a number of injuries in Roma's defense.

September 23, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Yanga-Mbiwa returned from an ankle injury to start and play all 90 minutes of Roma's 2-0 win over Cagliari on Saturday, his first clean sheet with the Italian club.

Roma are decimated by injuries right now but now that Yanga-Mbiwa is fit, he should be good for a number of clean sheets given their excellent defensive methods.
