Forster made three saves and conceded twice in Sunday's 4-2 victory over Manchester City.

The big goalkeeper hasn't shown quite the same form he did after returning from his lengthy injury layoff, but is still one of the best in England. However, his form has dipped considerably, having not kept a clean sheet since running off six-in-a-row to open his season. Currently in seventh position, the Saints close with a tough fixture at Spurs followed by a visit from 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.

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

April 23, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster made four stops and allowed two goals in Saturday's 4-2 win at Aston Villa.

It's disappointing to see Forster not come away with a clean sheet against the last-place club, but despite being a top option last year, games like this have become the norm this season. He hasn't recorded a clean sheet since February and that does not look likely to change next week against Man City.

April 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster had one save in Saturday's 1-1 draw versus Everton.

Forster only faced two shots as Everton rested a few of their normal starters. Forster has an opportunity for his first clean sheet since February as Southampton next faces an Aston Villa squad that has only scored 12 home goals, worst in the Premier League.

April 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster made a pair of saves and allowed one goal Saturday in a 3-1 win over Newcastle.

Forster had zero chance of stopping Andros Townsend's second half firecracker, and if you started him, you were probably counting on the shutout against a poor Magpies squad. Though his save numbers were predictably low on Saturday, he'll have a great chance for saves next week against an Everton team that's scored over 50 goals.

April 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster made plenty of nice saves, four in total, but still allowed a goal in Sunday's 1-0 loss at Leicester City.

After securing six consecutive clean sheets, Forster and the Southampton defense have failed to hold an opponent scoreless in their last six. With a home match against Newcastle next weekend, that may change.

March 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster made seven saves and conceded twice in Sunday's 3-2 win over Liverpool.

The seven saves is by far Forster's highest total since his 10-save effort at Arsenal in January. He didn't have a great chance to save either Liverpool goal, as his defenders allowed both Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge too much space to get off their shots. With a trip to Leicester up next for the Saints, Forster could comfortably be avoided in most fantasy formats.

March 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster saved one and conceded one in Saturday's 2-1 win versus Stoke City.

Though he earned his first win in nearly a month on Saturday, this marks yet another outing where Forster has failed to put up serious fantasy numbers in goal. Though you like Forster for the potential of clean sheets, his 10-save effort at Arsenal now appears to be a complete aberration, as he hasn't made more than two saves in any other game. Look elsewhere for now.

March 5, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster made two saves in Saturday's 1-1 draw to Sunderland.

After the six consecutive clean sheets, Forster and the Saints continue their mini-slump making it three straight games without a win. Jose Fonte's dismissal left a hole in the center of the defense and a terrible lapse saw Jermain Defoe unmarked break the dead-lock just a few minutes later. Forster was't to blame for the goal and he'll try to have a greater impact next Saturday against the Baggies.
