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.

Arsenal may be eliminated from the title race, but a home match against Norwich easily puts Petr Cech on top of the goalkeeper rankings this week.

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.

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 The Argentine has been working back into shape and only made it through a shade over an hour before being withdrawn; however, he did well in that time to keep City at bay.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo picked up four crosses and a clean sheet in 69 minutes of play in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Watford.

While Rojo's playing time has been getting gradually increased, it's still obvious he's a little rusty from his long-term injury and need more time to gain full fitness. That was his third straight game and second straight start but he'll probably continue to be a fairly weak fantasy option until he returns to full form.

Rojo (ankle) is starting Wednesday against Watford.

While it's good news that he's starting given the ankle issue, he's doing so at centerback alongside Daley Blind, as manager Louis van Gaal goes with Guillermo Varela and Timothy Fosu-Mensah out wide.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo (ankle) may play Wednesday against Watford, manager Louis van Gaal said Tuesday. "It was a kick [for Rojo]," van Gaal said. "A lot of players receive kicks and they can play the next match."

United have been crushed with injuries this season, and while Rojo's latest ailment isn't serious, he just returned from a serious shoulder injury. On the plus side for United, Chris Smalling could return from his injury and Matteo Darmian is expected back from his as well.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo left Sunday's match against Arsenal due to a knock.

It appeared as though Rojo hurt his ankle on a heavy challenge by Danny Welbeck, with the specific hopefully given after the match. He was replaced by Tim Fosu-Mensah, who made his Premier League debut in the process.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Rojo (shoulder) picked up an assist in 11 minutes off the bench in Thursday's Europa League tie against Midtjylland.

That was his first appearance since Nov 25 and while his fairly speedy recovery from shoulder surgery is an outstanding news for injury-dreaded United, it is still unclear if he'll be fit enough to start on Sunday against Arsenal. If he needs more time to gain full fitness the youngster Joe Riley may be up for his Premier League debut.
