Rojo started five games for Argentina during Copa America Centenario, recording two assists, two shots off target, three clean sheets and one yellow and one red cards on six fouls. He takes his international record to 49 caps and two goals. Argentina had to settle for the silver medals after they lost second consecutive Copa America penalty shoot-out final to Chile.

Rojo had a trying first half of the last season but was able to mount some consistent playing time, for the Red Devils, later on. Despite his tendency to go forward, though, the 26-year-old left back was mainly able to earn his fantasy production through clean sheets and peripheral stats, which stamped him with a low-fantasy upside tag. He finished the season with one assist, nine clean sheets and 43 tackles in 16 Premier League appearances (15 starts).

June 22, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo and the Argentina defense didn't have much to do against the United States on Tuesday en route to a 4-0 win. Rojo was often in attack mode and finished with three successful tackles and three interceptions.

Through five games, Argentina have three clean sheets, but will have a harder task in their next game. Colombia and Chile both have sides that can compete, although the Argentines will still be favored.

June 11, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo tallied a pair of assists, clean sheet and one foul in Argentina's 5-0 drubbing of Panama on Friday.

Rojo's tendency to go forward paid off lucratively, as he added a couple of assists to his defensive clean sheet. Argentina have ensured qualification to the quarterfinals and Rojo may be spared in the last group stage match, though, if he appears he'll be facing another good fantasy matchup against the rock-bottom Bolivia.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo missed Man United's midweek match against Bournemouth after picking up an injury in training last weekend, but according to manager Louis van Gaal, will be available in Saturday's FA Cup final against Crystal Palace.

Van Gaal has a selection issue now with Darmian and Rojo both back from injury for the final, among others. But whomever Van Gaal picks, especially on the back line, could be in for a nice matchup with Crystal Palace not an especially heavy-attacking team.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo tallied a clean sheet, one shot off target and two tackles in Saturday's 1-0 win over Norwich.

Rojo was shifted in the center of the defense with Daley Blind getting rested. The left back was far more quiet there, in an uncomfortable role, but he was fortunate enough not to be seriously tested by a lackluster Norwich side. He'll probably be slotted right back at his typical left back position, though, for the final two games of the season versus the Hammers on Tuesday and the Cherries next Sunday.

April 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo tallied a clean sheet, two shots off target, two crosses and five tackles in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.

With the Villans unable to put any pressure on United, Rojo had an opportunity to be active both on defense and offense turning in one of his better games this season and with a little more luck he could've had an excellent fantasy outing. He's started every game, at left back, since Feb 28. However, with Ashley Young, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia all healthy, versatile and competing for playing time you can expect to see him given some rest at some point, may be even midweek versus Crystal Palace.

April 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Everton.

In another grind-it-out affair for the Red Devils, Rojo and the United back four kept Everton almost entirely at bay save a speculative try from Romelu Lukaku and a breakdown that required a fantastic reflex save from David de Gea. That's now three clean sheets in four for Rojo and United as they look to secure their place in the Champions League next season.

March 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo took one shot (on target) and kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Manchester City.

Rojo and the rest of the United back-four kept a strong line and mostly kept City to speculative efforts, allowing just three of their 26 attempts on target. The Argentine has been working back into shape and only made it through a shade over an hour before being withdrawn; however, he did well in that time to keep City at bay.
