Forster made two saves, was issued a yellow card and conceded once in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Manchester City.

The big-bodied keeper hasn't been in quite the same domestic form as he was upon his return last season, but seems to have turned a corner. After conceding six goals in his opening four matches, he's conceded just twice in his past five (three wins and two draws) as the Saints have climbed into the top-half of the table. After a mid-week EFL Cup match against Sunderland, Forster will face a pair of difficult fixtures (both at home) against Chelsea and Inter Milan in the Europa League.

Fantasy Premier League: Sunday-Monday Cheat Sheet

He may be the most expensive option on the slate, but RotoWire's Chris Owen still thinks Zlatan Ibrahimovic deserves plenty of fantasy attention for the Premier League's Sunday-Monday slate.

Fraser Forster: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

October 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster conceded one goal while making zero saves in Sunday’s 3-1 win against Burnley.

Forster had an easy day as Burnley was unable to put any presser on the keeper. Forster’s clean sheet was wiped away when Burnley’s Sam Vokes slotted home a penalty. Forster should have a lot more save opportunities in his next league match, Sunday against Manchester City.

October 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster made one save while keeping a clean sheet in Sunday’s 0-0 draw against Leicester City.

Southampton has now recorded six straight clean sheets across all competitions, with Forster recording five. Forster was not challenged throughout this match as Southampton’s defense is in great form. Forster will have a good opportunity to keep his sixth straight clean sheet in two weeks against Burnley.

September 25, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster made no saves and kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 3-0 victory over West Ham.

With Southampton on the front-foot the whole match, content to keep possession and probe as necessary, Forster had about as quiet a day as he'll have all season. After not keeping a clean sheet in his opening four matches, he's now kept three-in-a-row across all comps (two in the Premier League and one in the Europa League). Forster and the Saints will travel to Israel for Thursday's Europa League clash against Hapoel B'er Sheva and then to Leicester ahead of the international break.

September 18, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster made three saves and kept a clean sheet in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Swansea City.

With the balance of play shifted heavily toward the Saints, Forster had a pretty quiet day. Coming off his first clean sheet of the season in the Saints' mid-week victory over Sparta Prague in the Europa League, Forster made it two-in-two to give Southampton their first victory of the season. The fixtures come fast and furious on the Welsh border, hosting Palace in the EFL Cup before traveling to London Stadium to take on West Ham and then a trip to Beersheba, Israel in the Europa League.

September 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster did not make a save and added three claims while conceding twice and picking up a yellow card in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal.

After an early goal, Forster faced an abundance of pressure from the Arsenal attack, who eventually broke through just inside the half-hour mark. While the balance of play shifted to-and-fro, Forster's goal was never directly threatened as he did not make a save for the afternoon. In stoppage time, Jose Fonte brought down Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla converted a penalty late, which snatched a (deserved) point out of Southampton's grasp. With a crowded fixture list upcoming, Forster, who has struggled with fitness throughout his career, may find himself outside the XI for some of the Saints' Europa League matches in an effort to keep him fresh.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster (arm) is starting on Saturday against Arsenal.

Forster was forced to pull out of international duty due to his injury, but it was never considered serious and he'll head back into the starting XI against a strong Arsenal attack.

September 8, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster (arm) will be available for Saturday's match with Arsenal.

Forster was forced to pull out of international duty due to his arm injury. He is expected to start for the Saints in what is expected to be a fairly back and forth game. Both teams play on the offensive foot, which will provide Forster chances to make saves and accumulate fantasy points.
