Forster made three saves and allowed one goal Sunday in a 4-1 win over Palace.

There wasn't much he could do to stop Jason Puncheon's missile on Sunday. After missing the first half of the season with injury, Forster returned in January and was in form from the get-go, racking up six straight clean sheets to start his season. Forster never allowed more than two goals in any game this season. He now waits for a Euro 2016 call from Roy Hodgson.

Manchester City need just a point to solidify their Champions League spot for next season, which keeps Kevin De Bruyne near the top of the midfielder rankings for the final week of the season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster signs a new five-year deal with Southampton, the Guardian reports.

Since his arrival at St Mary's in 2014 Forster has established himself as one of the top keepers in Premier League and is a candidate to be named in the England's squad for Euro 2016. The Saints will be delighted to retain the keeper's services for the near future.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Forster made five saves in Sunday's 2-1 win over Tottenham.

Forster checked in a fantastic game to help his team pull an upset at White Hart Lane. The keeper made 12 saves in the last three games along with three wins but he also conceded five goals in the same period which has significantly reduced his total fantasy production. The Saints have merely one loss in their last nine games but Forster hasn't had a clean sheet since Feb 13. He'll try to change that last fact in the season finale at home against the low-scoring Crystal Palace in a fierce hunt of the Europa League spots.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

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.
