Valencia started all four Copa America Centenario matches for Ecuador and had a good tournament which ended badly with a red on two yellow cards, he also added a goal on three shots (one on target), an assist, two clean sheets, six fouls and drew four fouls against himself. Valencia took his international tally to nine goals in 84 caps. Ecuador reached the quarterfinals where they lost 2-1 to the USA.

Valencia spent most of the last season with Manchester United on the sidelines with a serious ailment. He came back with a vengeance at the end of the campaign playing the last several games as a starter. The 30-year-old half back had a decent fantasy success as well ending the season with nine clean sheets, three assists and 27 tackles in 14 Premier League appearances (eight starts).

June 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia committed two fouls and was sent off in the second half during Ecuador's 1-2 loss against United States on Thursday.

Valencia is one of Ecuador's most important players and every time he's not there on the pitch, the team is weakened. That was the case today, as the Manchester United player was tightly marked and his frustration rewarded him a red card for a vicious foul against Alejandro Bedoya. His fantasy value playing for Ecuador is pretty high, but he won't make much of an impact if he doesn't control his emotions properly.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia registered a goal on two shots (one on target) during Ecuador's 4-0 win against Haiti on Sunday. He also committed three fouls and suffered one against him.

Valencia has one goal and one assist in the last two matches, and his fantasy value should be pretty high as long as he maintains his place on the right wing. He's not going to score many goals, however, but at the very least he'll add crosses and a few assists.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia tallied an assist and was fouled twice in Wednesday's Copa America 2-2 draw to Peru.

Valencia clipped a beautiful lob to find the run of Enner Valencia for the first Amarillos' goal of the tournament. The goal came in the perfect moment just before the break to give Ecuador the needed boost for a huge come back. Unlike when he plays for Manchester United, Valencia is getting deployed on the wing for Ecuador where he has a higher fantasy upside. His fantasy prospectives are going to be even higher on Sunday when Ecuador are taking on the inferior Haiti in the last group stage match.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia had and assist and took one shot on target in Tuesday's 3.1 win over Bournemouth.

Since taking over at right back, Valencia has kept three clean sheets. Valencia will finish the Premier League campaign with three assists. Valencia will play one more match Saturday, in the FA Cup final, against Crystal Palace.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia lit up the stats sheet with a clean sheet, one shot off target, four crosses, two dribbles and three tackles in Saturday's 1-0 win over Norwich.

Valencia took the starting right back position over in the middle of April and never looked back. That's his fourth consecutive start in Premier League action now and he's been in fantastic form having been very unfortunate to only have two assists during that period. The full back will have an opportunity to finish the season even stronger with a double-header next week. The Red Devils are visiting Upton Park on Tuesday for a clash with the Hammers and finishing the season at home against the Cherries in the season finale.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia tallied an assist in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Leicester City.

United broke quickly, with Valencia finding Anthony Martial in the eighth minute to give them the early lead. While he couldn't maintain his strong form throughout the match, for the opening hour, he was the class of United's back four. After sitting out of the team's 3-0 defeat to Spurs, Valencia has played the full 90 of the past three matches, collecting two assists while the team's gotten seven of nine available points.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valencia tallied a clean sheet, four crosses, two dribbles and five tackles in Wednesday's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Valencia looks fully healthy and at his best. That's his second consecutive start and he played exceptionally well, yet again. As an ex-winger he's very creative and active offensively and when plays regularly and at top form, Valencia has a high fantasy ceiling. He's in a tight battle with Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian and Ashley Young for the full back positions, though, and even if he gets another start the Red Devils' next encounter doesn't come until May 1 when they host the Foxes.
