Jagielka put on a defensive display Sunday as he has seven aerials won, two tackles, two crosses, and an incredible 26 clearances in the 2-1 win over QPR.

Jagielka is the defensive stud for Everton and he truly showed up today clearing ball after ball. Jagielka is no fantasy option as he only has eight shots in the entire season, but he is arguably Everton's most valuable player with his amazing defense. Jagielka and Everton take on Southampton in their next match on April 4th.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jagielka was Everton's best player Wednesday as he made two tackles and an incredible 18 clearances in the 1-0 loss to Chelsea.

Without Jagielka, Everton would have probably lost by multiple goals and he nearly carried his team to a big clean sheet, but the team was undone late after a red card by Gareth Barry. Jagielka has been great defensively and he also has the goal of the year for Everton in the Mercyside Derby early in the season. He'll continue to start and be a reliable defensive player, but not as effective as a fantasy option as he doesn't contribute in typical fantasy categories. Everton and Jagielka host Leicester in their next match on the 22nd.

Jagielka had a fine game Saturday, making 16 clearances en route to a clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Jagielka added five interceptions and was the defensive catalyst for the clean sheet. Jagielka is the captain and when he plays well, it sets the whole team in motion to play much better than they have been. He will need to show up again next Saturday when Everton hosts big rivals Liverpool.

Jagielka had to be stretchered off after suffering an ankle injury during Friday's match against Stoke City, and he is unlikely to play Sunday against Newcastle, manager Roberto Martinez said after the game..

Antolin Alcaraz replaced Jagielka on Friday, and he could take his spot in the starting XI for Sunday's match, as John Stones also suffered a knock during the game.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jagielka had a nice game Saturday, grabbing a clean sheet and scoring off a header in a 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

This was Jagielka's first goal since his wonder strike against Liverpool and he is a solid defensemen for a team that needs him to step up. Everton have been in a bit of a rut as of late, but this clean sheet, along with a favorable schedule, may make Jagielka a solid fantasy option for the next few weeks.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jagielka played hero Saturday grabbing the 91st minute goal in the 1-1 draw to earn a draw against rivals Liverpool Saturday.

Jagielka is not one for scoring, but had a nice finish from long range to grab a point in the tough rivalry game at Liverpool. Jagielka hasn't been very reliable from a fantasy perspective because he doesn't play as offensively as the left and right backs for Everton and they have been lacking in clean sheets this season. With that said, the defense may have found some rhythm today and its worth keeping an eye on to see if they start playing better defensively and earning some clean sheets.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jagielka, who had been out since late February with a hamstring injury, returned to Everton's starting XI on Saturday against Manchester City. Jagielka started the match and played 66 minutes before being subbed off in the 3-2 loss.

Jagielka will look to remain in the starting XI for Everton's final match of the season. If he does, he will have a good chance at a clean sheet as the Toffees finish up against Hull City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Jagielka (hamstring) is expected to return to the squad for their match against Manchester City on May 3, the team reports. He is not expected to be rushed back for this Saturday's match against Southampton, despite the mounting number of injuries Everton are dealing with.

Manager Roberto Martinez has been strict on not rushing Jagielka back from his hamstring injury. His return means he will be left with matches against Manchester City and away versus Hull City before the season ends.
