Valdes made three saves and conceded twice in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.

After being passed over in favor of Brad Guzan for two of Middlesbrough's first three matches, Valdes has returned for the last three; however, things have gone south for Boro. In the three matches Valdes has started in a row—granted against stiffer competition than Sunderland and West Brom—Valdes has conceded seven goals and they haven't secured as much as a point from nine. Valdes should still be in the starting XI next Saturday against West Ham, but manager Aitor Karanka will certainly have decisions to make.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valdes allowed three goals and made three saves during Saturday's loss to Everton.

Valdes and company enjoyed a brief lead on a dubious own-goal call in the 21st minute, but the Toffees leveled just three minutes later and spent most of the rest of the match on the front foot. Valdes has now conceded five goals in two matches since returning from a leg injury, and things will not get any easier next Saturday versus Tottenham.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valdes conceded twice and made four stops in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Palace.

Hard to put blame on Valdes for either goal, particularly the second when he was failed miserably by left back George Friend. Though he's a big name, Valdes isn't worth a start at keeper in any formats. He's already struggling with fitness and his four saves Saturday were his first four of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valdes (hamstring) is starting on Saturday against Crystal Palace.

Valdes' return to fitness will push Brad Guzan to the bench. The matchup is one that looks good on paper, as Palace have really struggled to score early this season, though they do have a solid group of attackers that could break out.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valdes should be available for Saturday's match versus Crystal Palace after recovering from a hamstring injury, The Sun reports.

Valdes missed the last couple of weeks because of the injury, but he had ample time to heal during the international break and returned to training this week. Brad Guzan has filled in admirably for Valdes, however, so it remains to be seen who will start in goal this weekend.

August 13, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valdes did not make a save and conceded once in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Stoke City.

On a day that Middlesbrough controlled the run of play, Valdes was caught a bit flat-footed on an exquisitely taken free kick by Xherdan Shaqiri to level the score. The former Manchester United deputy mustered just two caps for the senior level side after more than 500 for Barcelona and will compete with Brad Guzan for starts moving forward. They'll travel to the Stadium of Light to take on Sunderland next Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valdes is starting on Saturday against Stoke City.

Valdes gets the opening-day call ahead of Brad Guzan, though Stoke have a number of attackers that could make it a tough day overall.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valdes signed a two-year contract with Middlesbrough on Thursday after a free transfer from Manchester United.

Valdes has a considerable history with Barcelona, but his stint with Manchester United was almost a waste, as the club apparently though Sergio Romero was a better backup for David de Gea. It's unclear if Valdes will start over Dimitrios Konstantpopoulos, though he'll at least get a shot to compete for the job.
