Dante recorded a clean sheet, two tackles, team-high seven clearances and a yellow card in Friday's 2-0 marvelous win over Lyon.

Dante continues to primarily rely on shutouts to rack up fantasy points which hasn't been bad for him at all with Nice logging five clean sheets in their nine Ligue 1 matches. He's been solid and a key cog in Nice defense and will continue starting, though, will be the least appealing choice among the team's back five.

Dante: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

September 26, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dante tallied a clean sheet, three aerials won and was tied for team-high seven clearances in Sunday's 1-0 win over Nancy.

Nice have been playing lights out defensively and with back-to-back shutouts everyone from the backline could be a safe fantasy choice. Dante seem to be still adjusting to life in Nice and has the least upside of the five on the backline.

September 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dante tallied a clean sheet, five clearances, three blocked shots and three aerials won in Wednesday's 4-0 Ligue 1 romp over Monaco.

Dante had a solid game but is still picking up speed. He's not the best defensive option in the team, though, the following Ligue 1 dates with Nancy and Lorient, two of the three lowest-scoring offenses, will make any defender an appealing fantasy choice.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dante has been named in the 18-man squad for Saturday's Ligue 1 match against Lille, L'Equipe reports.

After arriving merely Monday Dante has already been called upon duty. However, it is still unclear if he'll slot straight into the starting line-up. The 17-year-old Malang Sarr has done amazing job in the heart of the defense scoring the winner against Rennes in the opener while keeping back-to-back clean sheets. If Dante starts he'll bring a decent fantasy upside at home in a solid defensive unit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dante has signed a three-year 2m deal on Monday with OGC Nice, Ligue1 reports.

Dante has left Wolfsburg at the age of 32 and is no stranger to the French league from his stint with Lille in 2006. His experience should be helpful for Mathieu Bodmer and Maxime Le Marchand this season.

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dante is set to undergo his medical with Nice on Monday ahead of reportedly 2M transfer to Ligue 1, according to L'Equipe.

Nice and Wolfsburg, Dante's current team, have reportedly agreed on the transfer terms and and the player is just a couple of days away from a three-year deal with the French side. The center back will bolster an already pretty solid defensive unit that has not conceded a goal after two games in Ligue 1 action. Dante isn't much of a scorer, however, and will look for some fantasy value primarily on clean sheets.

August 30, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dante was transfered to Wolfsburg on Sunday and intends to sign a three-year contract upon the completion of his physical.

Dante was removed from the starting XI recently and reportedly asked for his release shortly thereafter. He'll likely start for Wolfsburg as a 31-year-old central defender who only compiled three total goals during his three years with Bayern Munich.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Dante recorded his fourth Bundesliga clean sheet of the season in Bayern Munich's 4-0 win over Hannover 96 on Saturday.

While he doesn't figure in the attack at all (zero shots this season), the Bayern defense has been excellent this season and Dante has been able to benefit. In addition to his four league clean sheets, he also has one in the Champions League. The only issue he has to deal with is playing time, as he's come off the bench in three of the last eight matches in all competitions.
