Wijnaldum recorded an assist in a 1-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

Wijnaldum has been fantastic this season for Newcastle, as he leads the team with six goals and has provided two assists. The most impressive part about that is that his six goals have come on just 17 shots, so he clearly has a great knack for finishing. Without Wijnaldum, it's hard to imagine where Newcastle would be right now.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wijnaldum sensationally scored four goals in Newcastle's 6-2 win over Norwich City on Sunday.

Wijnaldum put together an absolutely breathtaking display Sunday, scoring twice in both halves. Along with a right-footed shot from close range, the Dutchman put home two headers from inside the penalty box, before capping his performance with a deflected right-footed shot from outside the area. In doing so, Wijnaldum brought his tally to six goals on the season, tying him for second in the Premier League at the moment.

Wijnaldum tallied an assist and took two shots (one on target) in Saturday's 6-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Wijnaldum provided good service to Aleksandar Mitrovic on a total defensive lapse by Man City to give the Magpies the lead. Wijnaldum has two goals and an assist in eight Premier League matches this season and has been a lone bright spot on a miserable Newcastle side this season.

Wijnaldum scored in Saturday's 2-2 draw against Chelsea.

Wijnaldum headed home Ayoze Perez's 60th minute corner to give the hosts a two goal lead that was eventually relinquished to the champions. Wijnaldum arrived in the summer and has already contributed two goals in seven starts. Whilst he's not a top level midfield option there are few others ahead of him when fantasy players consider adding a Newcastle player to their team.

Wijnaldum fired two shots, provided four crosses, drew three fouls and scored a beautiful headed goal in Sunday's draw with Southampton.

The Dutch attacker was extremely active in his Newcastle debut and made an immediate impact for his new club. Wijnaldum should be a fixture in the Magpies' lineup after a big-money move from PSV this summer, and he will look to build off of his impressive start next week against Swansea.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wijnaldum has completed a 14.7 million transfer from PSV Eindhoven to Newcastle, the Mirror reports.

Wijnaldum becomes Newcastle's third most expensive signing in club history following an Eredivisie career that started at age 16 and included 81 goals with 35 assists across eight seasons split between Feyenoord and PSV. Most recently, Wijnaldum registered 18 goals and six assists as PSV ran away with last season's Dutch league title. At still just 24 years old, Wijnaldum is an exciting attacking midfielder that should add much creativity to Newcastle's setup.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Wijnaldum has signed a new deal with PSV that will keep him with the club until 2018.

Wijnaldum was another member of the Netherlands team to impress at the World Cup, which in turn saw his name linked with a number of top clubs during the transfer window. However, the attacking midfielder, who has scored 38 goals in 111 appearances at Philips Stadion, has decided to stay with PSV.
