Can started 23 of 27 matches during his first season in the Premier League, although he only produced one goal during Liverpool's 2014-15 campaign.

Can proved to be a staple in manager Brendan Rodgers' lineup this season but the 21-year-old struggled to provide much in the way of counting stats as a defensive-minded midfielder. With three years left on his current contract, the German should see plenty of minutes moving forward but he'll have to amass more production before he's a worthwhile option in standard formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Can picked up two yellow cards during Saturday's match against Arsenal, but he won't miss any Premier League time, as he will serve his suspension during Wednesday's FA Cup quarterfinal replay against Blackburn Rovers.

Can continues to be a very solid part of the Liverpool back-three, though it's not ideal from a fantasy perspective, as he's considered a midfielder in most formats.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Can picked up his seventh clean sheet of the season during the 2-0 victory over Southampton on Sunday.

Can only has 15 Premier League appearances this season but his presence on the pitch enabled Liverpool's recent success on the defensive side of the ball.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Can has made nine Premier League appearances this season and currently has one goal to his credit.

Can has been used in limited fashion by manager Brendan Rodgers this season but has seen three consecutive starting XI spots recently, including Monday's FA Cup match against AFC Wimbledon. The 20-year-old may be turning into a viable option at midfielder just yet, although it might wise to see if his tenure in the starting XI continues before jumping on his bandwagon.

Can scored his first goal of the season in Liverpool's 2-1 loss to Chelsea on Saturday.

Can's playing time has been very inconsistent this season, but he got the start Saturday and scored on a screamer that actually ricocheted off Chelsea defender Gary Cahill. It's unclear if the goal will be overruled into an own goal, but as of now, it's Can's.

Can returned from an ankle injury and got the start in Liverpool's 3-2 victory over QPR on Sunday.

Can got the start over Joe Allen to fill the defensive role alongside captain Steven Gerrard. Between Can and Allen, it is unclear who is the preferred defensive midfield choice for manager Brendan Rodgers. However, due to their positions, neither hold much value in fantasy leagues.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Can has returned to training and could feature in Sunday's match against QPR after recovering from an ankle injury, manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed Friday.

Can made two substitute appearances for Liverpool before suffering the ankle injury while playing for Germany's U-21 side in September. With a crowded midfield that includes the return of Joe Allen (ankle), Can will find starts tough to come by.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed Thursday that Can could miss up to six weeks with an ankle injury he sustained while playing for Germany's U21 side.

Can has made two appearances for the Reds this season, though he hasn't had much of an impact, and his absence isn't like to affect many fantasy squads.
